Pacific Rim is definitely Guillermo del Toro’s homage to both flavors of the Japanese fascination with the gods; expressed as giant monsters or giant piloted robots as they have been in film and anime for decades. He didn’t choose, he went for both, and I think this movie is going to be a lot of fun. At least, the first time I saw this trailer, I shouted It’s Gojira Season right out loud and jumped up and down, wishing that I could be riding the god-robots with them to save the Earth. We have to wait until July of 2013 to see this one, but otaku that I am I am looking forward to it.
