Godziban Episode 05 – KAIJU PUPPET SHOW 「Secret Training on the Pointed Mountain」 Go! Go! Godzilla # 3【Goji Ban】
September 6, 2019
Written and directed by Hideyuki Kobayashi
It’s episode 5 of Godziban and we’re still going strong with lots of puppet action and adventure and jokes. Mostly jokes. As you can see from the ever-expanding episode titles, Godziban is running into the problem of YouTube’s stupid algorithm ruining everything. That’s what happens when you have a bunch of skits and a platform that makes searching arbitrary at best.
Go! Go! Godzilla-kun
Godzilla-Kun is teaching the boys more monster stuff and they head off for lessons. On the way they run into Anguirus….and Godzilla-Kun and Anguirus talk with pop up speech bubbles (here held up by signs because puppet show!) and it’s adorable and amazing callback to Godzilla vs Gigan. Also hooray for Anguirus now showing up in these, more kaiju please, expand the cast!!!
There is a bunch of bananas on a far away high mountain connected to the Godzilla brothers via a ramp. Godzilla-kun demonstrates how to run fast in a Sonic-the Hedgehog manner to get up a steep ramp to grab a banana. Little is next to try, but he repeatedly can’t get all the way up and Godzilla-kun and Minya drop a rope to pull him back up to their cliff. Minya just falls over the side and rolls around, they immediately drop the rope on him to yank him back up, lol. Poor Minya.
Baby Mothra then shows up, and because Baby Mothra is awesome she rolls across the ramp and yanks a banana for Little, and then rolls again to yank a banana for Minya, and then rolls once again to yank the rest of the bananas. Then she keeps rolling back and forth because Baby Mothra is not only awesome, but also crazy! The monsters watch her as she has her fun.
Then they all eat bananas! Anguirus also eats a banana and Mothra continues to roll. In conclusion, sometimes when life gives you ramps, you gotta roll!
Hedojii continues the same wasteland wandering format. There is no rolling or bananas.
