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, the Pacific Rim kaiju, 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.

One of the more popular entries (and surprisingly so), to Obscure Kaiju Month 2014, was two characters from the 1977 tokusatsu series "Daitetsujin 17" - those being the rebellious super robot 17, and his nefarious creator, the evil super computer Mister Brain. Both of which, can be revisit in the following articles:

Obscure Kaiju: Iron Robot 17Created by the legendary Shotaro Ishinomori, ”Daitetsujin 17” (1977) was originally envisioned as an animated series. But switched to live action, and given a humorous slant, in order to differentiate it from all the other Super Robots filling up the airwaves back then.
Another added twist was with the titular protagonist himself, Iron Robot 17 (alias Giant Ironman 1-7).
17 (pronounced 1-7) isn't a simple machine piloted or controlled by humans, but a fully sentient, talking robot giant, who does what he want, when he wants!
And openly rebels against the criminal organization that built him, by reluctantly teaming up with the paramilitary group dubbed The Defenders (not the Marvel Comics one).
Though thankfully, 17 does chill out by adjusting his attitude, and becomes a true friend to humanity, as the series progresses.
Various episodes of “Daitetsujin 17” was
Obscure Kaiju: Mister BrainEarlier in Obscure Kaiju month, I introduced to you Iron Robot 17; a heroic robot rogue, who rebelled against his evil creator, by teaming up with the Japanese military. meet 17’s creator! The megalomaniac super-computer dubbed Brain. Or Mister Brain, to you!
Similar to Iron Robot 17, Mister Brain is also a sentient mechanical being, with a unique character twist; unlike other rogue computers in science fiction, Mister Brain actually likes humans...EVIL HUMANS, that is!
And creates his own criminal alliance, called The Brain Party, to help him conquer the world, filled with willing human villains and giant killer robots alike.
Among Mister Brain’s many ‘associates’, is his unhappy mad scientist inventor, Dr. Hessler, who serves as one of his lead generals. Mister Brain and Dr. Hessler have a dysfunctional relationship, at best.

Well...Now you can watch the extremely bastardized, American movie compilation entitled "Brain 17"! But first, a nearly half-hour long warning...huh, I mean pod-cast review from KaijuNoir, based on a DVD donation from yours truly:

And now, onto our main feature, "Brain 17"...Just don't take it too seriously, and you all might have a great time with this bizarre creature of a film:

Sorry to inform you but, Guillermo del Toro on Twitter last night specifically said that a Pacific rim/Kong/Godzilla crossover will not happen. He did say that Pacific rim 2 is still on. If you want proof of this I'll be glad to share it with you.

Apparently, there is a 50th Anniversary Ultraman project planned for Japan in 2016. And an extremely cool teaser-trailer has been created to promote it.

Check it out...…
