    Essential!

    If you love Japanese monster movies, this is a must-have. Stuffed with information. A great read cover-to-cover, or pick it up to refer to a specific movie. Lots of 'behind-the-scenes' details and 'dirt' on personalities. Great photos too.

    Excellent & informative chronicle of the rise of kaiju eiga

    Beginning 25 years when I was 5, like many others I was exposed to these wonderful films via 4 o¿clock movies or late night creature features. They gave pleasure then as now looking back on them. Most of the explanatory works I later searched for on these movies were limited to Japanese language fan compendiums. I was thrilled when I saw this and the Godzilla Compendium online, and purchased them immediately. Divided into sections of intros, interviews, plot synopses, primary people involved this read like a scholarly dissertation on the unlikely subject of the monster / fantasy genre of Japan. I enjoyed the interviews the most, especially the overwhelming sense of humour that pervaded the discussions as these actors, directors, and producers chatted about the camaraderie and stories of working together. I was also very pleased to read that Kumi Mizuno [the sultry and beguiling Maimi `everybody wants me¿] enjoyed Attack of the Mushroom People so much, as it along w/ Destroy All Monsters is a favorite of mine. After reading the interviews, and the evenness that the questions were posed, it was sort of a shift of gears to read the reviews, which were often not very complimentary and sometimes scathing. I found it interesting to see the other production houses besides Toho discussed, as well as the other genres that the actors and directors dealt with. A welcome addition to the collection of Japanese fantasy film lovers. Recommended.
