I don't watch to much anime these days but I will make sure to watch this.

Oooh... I only just watched the 2014 Gojira movie. I hope this'll be good enough for me to check it out once it's dubbed. (Don't hurt me)

I really liked (the first season of) Knights of Sidonia. The animation style took a bit of getting used to but I ultimately liked it more than I disliked it.

When I first read Knights of Sidonia I thought of Knights of Cydonia.

My problem with the Sidonia animation and using it for this is the stuff doesn't really interact with each other. Lots of shooting at distant targets and dog fighting, but no real grappling or moving. That could work if it's just Godzilla leveling a city with the usual choppers and tanks shooting at him, but it would leave much to be desired if there's a Kaiju wrestling match.

Based on Gen Urobuchi's writing style, I fully expect Godzilla to be killed near the 3rd episode mark.

If Polygon would complete their animation at 30fps, then I would probably be okay with them doing this. Hell I'd be okay if any Japanese animation studio didn't cut frames from their CGI scenes.

The last summer of the 20th century. On that day, the human race realized that they were not the only ruler of the planet earth.

The emergence of gigantic monsters "kaiju" and the ultimate existence that even can destroy the kaijus, Godzilla. After half-century of the war against the kaijus, the human race repeatedly defeated and decided to escape from the earth. Then finally in the year 2048, only people who were chosen by the artificial intelligence under the control of the central government went on board the interstellar immigrant ship Aratrum and left for the "Cetus: Planet Tau e" which was 11.9 light years away from the earth. But the environmental condition difference between the earth and Tau e, which took 20 years to reach, was far exceeded the predicted value, and there was no way to survive for the human race.

A young man named Haruo is on board of the immigrant ship. His parents were killed by Godzilla right front of him when he was 4, since then, he has been thinking about only going back to the earth and killing Godzilla for 20 years. Since there is no hope for immigration to other planets, the "Return to the Earth" group including Haruo becomes the mainstream in the ship as its living condition is getting worse, then they decide to try the long distance hyperspace navigation.

However, 20,000 years have already passed when they finally arrive the earth, and it becomes a totally unknown world dominated by an ecosystem topped by Godzilla. Can the human race take the earth back, and the fate of Haruo will be...?

Sometimes I'm just down for some moody anime. This looks and sounds like it could scratch that itch.

This looks amazing, though I wish it had english subs. I tried the youtube auto-subs, but it just generated gibberish.

I soured on anime in general several years ago but this looks worth watching.

Polygon Pictures makes some good stuff. Check out BLAME! on Netflix right now if you would like a preview of the style you will see in Monster Planet. Plus, BLAME! is a pretty good movie in its own right.

It's pretty meh. The animation quality is low (especially for Big-G). Most of the movie is dull story setting dialogue, and when stuff finally starts happening the movie is already basically over. This feels more like someone had an idea for a 13 episode anime series that they then ended up turning into a movie.

This was "Part 1, Episode 1" - whatever that means.

So it was heavily burdened by exposition, in the absolute worst tradition of needlessly talky anime. The characters were uniformly boring despite being over the top, again, in the worst tradition of anime, And honestly I didn't really understand what happened, by the end.

On the bright side, I like the sci fi premise. Hope that the next episode ... or part, or whatever, is a little more ... or maybe a little less ... er, well, just better.

Resounding “meh” from me. I’ll put up with crappy animation if the story/characters/premise are good. I’ll put up with crappy story/characters if the art is fantastic. This had nothing. The only draw was the Big G, and he was poorly done and almost never on the screen.

I’d say I’m not going to watch “part 2” if it ever shows up, but I’m weak, and probably will anyway. But I shouldn’t.

There is a post credits scene if people missed it.

I seem to be largely allergic* to Anime as a medium. But I started watching this last night and found it really quite enjoyable. To the degree I may actually finish watching this one

*I see why others love it, but it's traditionally left me rather cold, when I should be amongst those loving it.

It's a trilogy, next release is May (but maybe that's the Japanese release date?) - and guess what they find ...

A dated South Park reference (to an admittedly somewhat funny episode)?

For shame...
