There goes Tokyo!! As the Godzilla franchise has stepped back into the spotlight, some people have complained that there's too many humans and not enough monsters. But YouTube game reviewer and well of Tokusatsu knowledge Asai Nero Tran knows that strong human characters are the key to what makes this franchise shine. From the origins of Tokusatsu to the King of the Monsters' cultural footprint, Asai's deep knowledge of the seminal 1954 kaiju classic is on full display as we dive into the grounded, nuanced drama that may surprise casual fans of the franchise.
