Godzilla-kun was originally called "Godzilland".  
However, Toho quickly decided to call it "Godzilla-kun".  At that time, I may or 
may not have fainted. And Janus, who designed the logo for Godzilland, cried and 
despite the fact that everyone tried to cheer him up, it was still 
tough for him. Also, Moo cried just from seeing him cry. 
Godzilla-kun was written in only two months, so I gave it my all and worked day and night
towards the end.  I don't know whether or not the aftermath was a blow to 
him, but Jemini flew into a rage and kicked a garbage bin over some English related thing. 
Furthermore, because he also kicked a desk, he's been complaining that his leg hurts. 
And everyone lived happily ever after!?
