'Godzilla-Anime.com' Domain Name Registered Under Toho

posted on by Karen Ressler

TOHO Ad Co., Ltd is listed as the registrant on a "Godzilla-Anime.com" domain name. The domain name was registered on August 2.

TOHO's newest Godzilla film, Godzilla: Resurgence (Shin Godzilla), opened in Japan on July 29, and Funimation plans to release the film in theaters in late 2016. TOHO released the first film in the franchise in 1954, and since the opening of Godzilla: Resurgence, TOHO's live-action Godzilla franchise of 29 films has collectively sold over 100 million tickets in Japan. American films about Godzilla opened in 1998 and 2014.

The franchise inspired two western animated series: one from Hanna-Barbera in 1978 and one that served as a follow-up to the 1998 film. The Godzilla character first appeared in a Japanese television anime on July 22 in a crossover with Crayon Shin-chan.
