Bocchi the Rock's 'Bocchilla' Takes on Godzilla Above Tokyo Theater

posted on by Ken Iikura-Gross
The King of Monsters might finally meet its equal

Having appeared in 30 live-action Japanese films, five Hollywood films, and three anime films, it's no wonder Godzilla has earned the moniker King of Monsters — and countless parodies. One recent parody is "Bocchila," the Shōnin Yokkyū Monster (Attention-Whore Monster) from the 2022 anime series Bocchi the Rock! And now Bocchila is taking on Godzilla above TOHO CINEMAS in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

The Bocchi the Rock! anime's X (formerly Twitter) account unveiled the appearance of Bocchila at the Shinjuku TOHO Building on May 13. In the tweet, we see the monster plastered on the side of the building, spitting fire, and seeking social media likes from everyone, but most especially Godzilla. Just above the image you can see the iconic Godzilla head that has made the Shinjuku TOHO Building world-famous.
