So he's a resident ... I wonder what his hanko looks like.

Little irony that the monster awoken by the release of radiation rears his head again.

was born a genetic aberration, caused by nuclear testing in the Pacific Ocean.

Wonder whether his residency card lists him a Japanese or not LOL!

Godzilla? Glad to see him back. He's a cool dude. We'd like to have him over for a barbecue and let him grill some yakisoba or yakitori with his atomic breath.

Godzilla -- what's not to love? Now that he is a resident of Tokyo, will he run for mayor?

Not a very positive way to go about getting residency -- smashing buildings, scaring the residents, and serving as a reminder of nuclear accidents -- but you gotta love Godzilla!

Wow! The lengths that Japan will go to increase the population is incredible! What's next? Will Kumamon become a resident of Kumamoto?

If he does a good job, we can promote him to Prime Minister. Who needs arrows when you can breath fire?

Didn't I just read somewhere that the government has been cracking down on the number of characters used to promote various products? How is this different?

Since Godzilla has been granted Tokyo residency, after trashing the city so many times, I think it's only fair that Mothra (Mosura) be given similar recognition.

They ought to be a big full-bodied one like the Gundam in Odaiba.
