My reason for posting this old 1984 Miyazaki film 1st and foremost is because it’s nothing short of amazing and one of my all time favorites. Secondly I came across a 10min live-action short entitled “Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo.” Apparently it is a prequel of sorts and I wanted to share it.
Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo (link below is to the 10min short) Enjoy!
