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.

Something I'm going to try to do once a month, on my barley breathing blog. And that's to showcase some of the peculiar creatures from the obscure history of Japan's Pachimon bromide cards.

'Pachimon' is the collective short hand for various Japanese postcards, playing cards, and trading cards from late 1960's and early 1970's that featured original Kaiju illustrations. Along with full-blown 'rip-offs' loosely based on more famous Kaiju from film and television, often created through photography effects and editing.

Despite the wealth of fully original characters from these bromide cards, it was the 'stolen monsters' that gave Pachimon (also Japanese for 'stolen monsters') its infamous name and reputation.

Terrible shame of inaccuracy and people's misconceptions, really.

And I'm no better either, by starting off my Showcase series with two Pachimon spawned from The King of the Monsters himself!

Small thing but the group logo should be  <かいじゅうでん> not かいじゅでん。Or in Kanji 怪獣殿 (Hall of Monsters) or 怪獣伝 (Tale of Monsters) Cos it doesn't make any sense. I'm half Japanese and lived in Tokyo for 18 years, fluent spoken and written Japanese. Cheers.
