Godzilla, a name we’re sure almost everyone would be familiar with. Even more so because of the recent release of the film Godzilla Vs Kong. No matter whose side you chose in the epic battle, one has to admit that Godzilla is a force to be reckoned with. The famous kaiju first appeared in a 1954 film and instantly became a popular character. Since then, Godzilla has spawned tens of films and series in its name. Be it humans, other monsters, or machines, Godzilla has fought nearly everything. And it looks like it is nearly impossible to defeat the monster.
In series like Godzilla: Planet Of Monsters, Earth becomes inhabited by kaiju including Godzilla itself. In such shows, Godzilla is shown in a negative light. While American movies such as Godzilla: King Of The Monsters, shows him as a savior who protects Earth from the terror caused by other Kaiju including Ghidorah, a kaiju from another planet.
Godzilla is insanely popular. It even has a Hollywood star in its name on the Los Angeles walk of stars. In this article, we will be talking about the recent anime series featuring the monster. Godzilla: Singular Point. The first two episodes were released on Netflix on 25th March 2021 and the next episode will be released on 8th April. So, what is Godzilla: Singular Point about?

Like many other previous stories, the world is yet again at risk of being destroyed by the force of nature that is Godzilla. The main characters of the story this time around are Mei Kamino and Yun Arikawa. Mei is a brilliant researcher while Yun is an outstanding engineer. Mei had taken an interest in studying fantasy-like creatures like Godzilla. She started observing the signals coming from Misakioku and found them strange enough to warrant a further investigation. Later on, she discovers an abandoned house. Both, Mei and Yun hear a certain song while researching and that song is what unites the two in the first place. Together, they begin investigating strange phenomena and try to save the world before Godzilla goes out of control.
Godzilla was said to have appeared in the series from the sea. Two boats were destroyed by the kaiju as they sailed through the sea. Locals of the Odo Island were the first ones to recognize the threat of the monster. And so, as a way of hoping the kaiju don’t destroy them, they regularly sacrificed young girls. Later on, the Godzilla was killed off by a major explosion caused by an Oxygen Destroyer bomb. However, the monster is now about to return to threaten the world yet again.
