Orochi Mania with Kyle Yount!

June 13, 2020

Byrd and Matt are joined by Kyle Yount of the Kaijucast/Collect All Monsters to take a plunge into the world of Japanese mythology!  Here, we discuss the Shinto legends of Yamato Takeru, Prince Susanoo, and the slaying of the eight headed dragon, Yamata no Orochi.  We will talk about the original stories, as well as three feature film adaptations:  The Three Treasures (1959), Little Prince and the Eight Headed Dragon (1963), and Yamato Takeru (1994).  We will discuss the productions, review them, compare them to the original Japanese legends, talk about how they tie into the Godzilla series, and more!  Relax and enjoy the discussion.
