There goes Tokyo!! Despite what others may say, YouTube game reviewer Asai Nero Tran knows that strong human characters are the key to a stellar Godzilla film, and he's here to school Larry on the one that started it all. From the origins of Tokusatsu to the King of the Monsters' cultural footprint, Asai's deep knowledge of the seminal 1954 kaiju classic is on full display as we dive into the grounded, nuanced drama that may surprise casual fans of the franchise.
