On July 11th, host @trekkieb47 attended G-Fest 22. G-FEST is a family-oriented convention which caters to a wide variety of interests within the kaiju genre. It is the largest regular gathering of Godzilla and Japanese monster fans in the world. Held every summer, it typically attracts more than 1000 attendees and has seen a gradual increase in attendance over the past few years.
In this episode we present Noboru Kaneko‘s panel in its entirety. Noboru-san played the character of Kakeru who transformed into Blazing Lion, GaoRed, leader of the Gaorangers. Gaoranger was Toei Company’s twenty-fifth production of the Super Sentai series, which aired in 2001, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the franchise. For Godzilla fans, Mr. Noboru is best known for his role as lead scientist Yoshito Chujo in Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.
Speaking of Tokyo S.O.S, at the end of Noboru’s panel we are including panel highlights from Masaaki Tezuka, Director for the Godzilla Millennium Series movies Godzilla vs. Megaguirus, Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla and Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.
Enjoy the show!
