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.

Old news, but worth mentioning again, especially for those who don't already know.

Tsuburaya Productions are officially licencing subbed episodes of both "Ultraman Max" and "Ultraman Mebius" on the streaming video service Crunchyroll.

Many episodes are already available for free, with more coming for each week.

Ultraman Max vs. The Natsunome Dragon by kaijukid Ultraman by nelsondaniel

Tsuburaya Productions has had a long and sordid history of trying to get their Ultraman shows exposure in the US, with both American television and legit DVD releases being unfortunate misfires. And all with 4Kids Entertainment, Australian sanctioned bans, and Chiyo Productions to partly thank for the aforementioned failures.

So online availability MIGHT be the last chance the Ultraman franchise has to get a direct footing here in the states.

Plus, it helps that both "Ultraman Max" and "Ultraman Mebius" are very good shows, made in recent years, as opposed to Tsuburaya Productions trying to offload the far older (and in my personal opinion, rather overrated) "Ultraman Tiga" on us again.

Though between the two, my personal preference leans towards "Ultraman Mebius"

Diffidently check them out in the following links, and spread the word where you guys can:
