Group Info

A group devoted to being a key central for finding Kaiju art and artists, as well as a social and networking tool for kaiju fandom, be it stars like Godzilla, Gamera, and King Kong, to rookies like the Cloverfield monster, and even original characters created by artists.

Membership has no requirements, other than the ONE GOLDEN RULE; all artwork submitted must involve giant monsters in some manner.

-The top artists will have their work displayed in the Featured gallery.

-There are possibilities for promotions to those committed enough.

What is Kaiju?

For those unfamiliar with the term; Kaiju is Japanese for 'strange creature', or 'monster', while the additional Daikaiju (Dai = big) means giant monster. Fans in America (perhaps even more so than those in Japan) have used Kaiju as a slang phrase for the kind of giant beasts that pop up in Japanese science fiction and fantasy films, most notably Godzilla and his many friends and foes from that ongoing franchise.

Hence the name of our group, Kaijuden - the premier Deviant Art group dedicated to such things.

However, we know Kaiju isn't a perfect term, nor our we limited to the giant monsters from Japan alone...after all, where would the King of the Monsters be without his American forefathers King Kong and The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms?

As such, we have plenty of sub-folders and galleries within our group for these foreign giants. Those said galleries are all pretty self-explanatory, but if you have any further questions, you may contact our knowledgeable co-founder Enshohma.

Attack of the Giant Shorts is a showcase of short films and episodes all relating to (what else) giant monsters. And I decided to resurrect this feature after Honest Trailers tackled both American-made Godzilla films recently.

And thank goodness too, because Cinema Sins can go devour itself in its extreme nitpicking, negativity sulking corner!





And now to class up the joint! Here's British reviewer Oliver Harper's own take on the 1998 film:



In the 1970's, Tsuburaya Productions (the people behind "Ultraman") made the following vacuum cleaner commercial, staring the super heroine Falcon, and the dust monster Gomira:



Sci-Fi Japan TV's first look at the fan-made documentary "Hail To The King":



Was it really that bad, American International Pictures? Was it really THAT bad? Yes...Yes it was.







"Godzilla vs Mito Komon": Some Japanese comedians did this as a college project. And I have no clue if this is just plain stupid, or just plain stupidly brilliant.



If you have any neat monster videos to share in future Giant Shorts, please share the links in the comments below.

We thought about it, but there wasn't that many video games where giant monsters are the main focus. So we just put all VG Kaiju in the Other Kaiju from Media folders.
