The staff of the "Tadaima! Chibi Gojira" (I'm Home! Chibi Godzilla) animated shorts based on the character Chibi Godzilla revealed five additional cast members on Wednesday.
The newly announced cast members are:
The animated shorts show the daily life of Chibi Godzilla, who lives at office worker Satomi's house. Motion capture technology and 3D models are used to animate Chibi Godzilla, Chibi Ghidorah, and Chibi Mothra. Serika Hiromatsu voices Chibi Godzilla, and Mai Aizawa voices Satomi. Tommy Hino (Pastel Life) is the shorts' director, Moriko Mori (Gal & Dino) is the scriptwriter, and helo.inc is the producer.
Chibi Godzilla debuted in Chiharu Sakazaki's Ganbare Chibi Gojira (Do Your Best, Chibi Godzilla) picture book in October 2018. Sakazaki launched a second picture book Nakayoshi Chibi Gojira (Close Friends, Chibi Godzilla) in May 2019.
The Chibi Godzilla project celebrated the 65th anniversary of the Godzilla franchise. The project launched in July 2018, and it has since appeared on a wrap of the Shinjuku Sumitomo Building, as a kigurumi character at 2018's "Gojira Fes" (Godzilla Fest) event, in animated shorts during theater intermission, and for other projects. Before designing Chibi Godzilla, Sakazaki was known for designing characters such as the Suica commuter card's penguin and Chiba Prefecture's official mascot Chi-ba-kun.
