Godzilla Singular Point release date

Godzilla Singular Point, a new anime series from director Atsushi Takahashi (Doraemon the Movie 2017: Great Adventure in the Antarctic Kachi Kochi) and anime studios Bones (My Hero Academia) and Orange (Beastars), marks a significant departure from recent Godzilla stories.

Now you can bow down to the queen by purchasing Mondo’s new premium scale statue inspired by her appearance in Godzilla: Tokyo SOS, where she goes head-to-head with the giant lizard to keep him from destroying Tokyo…again. With vibrant colors and impressive wingspan, this looks like a must-have for the most die-hard Godzilla fans out there. Read More »

The series will be available to stream globally on June 24, but on Netflix Japan, it’s been following a weekly release schedule since March so that subscribers can now access the first 10 episodes.

I live in Japan and have been following the series as it has aired here. And let me tell you: fans of giant monsters need to have this series on their radar for its worldwide debut.
