So while cruising on Amazon to add some Godzilla DVDs to my ever growing collection I happened across a listing for Godzilla-Complete Animated Series. Well, now this just took me by surprise. I guess it should not had, being that the big budget summer movie is heading our way rather quickly, but still I had not heard about the animated series’ release until now.
This complete set is to be debuted by the good people at Mill Creek. You may be familiar with them from releasing classic television shows seasons, movies and that incredible He-Man and the Masters of the Universe 30th anniversary box set.
I do not know much about the Godzilla-Complete Animated Series set, aside from a few factoids. The set is listed at $9.99 which is an incredible steal as the series consisted of 40 episodes. The release date according to Amazon is April 29, 2014. Which is just a couple of weeks shy of the movie’s May 16 release.
This is not to be confused with the 1978-1979 Godzilla animated series from Hanna-Barbera and Toho, ...you know the one with Godzooki? No, not that one.
While this series is a continuation of sorts from the groan inducing 1998 Godzilla movie by Roland Emmerich, the general consensus by fans and reviewers is that this series is incredibly entertaining. Watch the opening credits below:
I have always wanted to check this show out but because it was originally released on DVD in a couple of episodes here and there, I didn’t commit for fear of getting a few discs in and a box set drops. Thankfully Mill Creek has solved that problem by with this set.
So get your pre-order on now for Godzilla-Complete Animated Series set now.
