It's far edgier than I imagined it to be. They left Nihei's appeal and style intact, the action sequences are brutal and the mega structure looks as cool as it does in the manga.
If you're an anime and/or sci-fi fan and you're up for a little Gojira action mixed with hardcore sci-fi, this is by far the best entry in the franchise so far. Bring on the sequels.
The good stuff
Middle part in the animated trilogy. There's quite a lot of downtime before the actual battle with Gojira starts, but Seshita and Shizuno know how to build up the a sprawling finale. The animation is amazing, the scifi elements thorough and Gojira is absolutely menacing. Can't wait for part 3.
A worthy finale to the trilogy. Low on action, but that shouldn't come as a surprise to those who've seen the previous films (a must). Instead Planet Eater takes a more philosophical route, while still delivering some monumental visuals. It's a most welcome addition to the Gojira franchise, though true fans will beg to differ.
