I could be wrong, but I assumed the other dimensional Godzilla came about through them experimenting on the bones and the future computer and is not part of that universe. The bones on the other hand belong to their universe and mean another could be out there.

Interesting! I had not considered that possibility, but you make a good point. I'm a little more open to the idea of a second season now.

If this plays out the way I think it will, the other dimension opening could awaken all of the Godzilla monsters in the normal universe from slumber and the reality is the catastrophe has not been averted it's just been shifted in time and all bets are off, and the first season was the calm before the true storm. Also, Jet now being out means Mecha will now take his place as humanity's last hope.

Edit: This could also be a time loop, like the Godzilla that showed up in singular could be from the future where humanity has failed and is desperate, so they sent it back and all the other monsters in time for their ancestors to deal with. The one that will now show up could be one of the early Godzilla, who the doctor now wants to kill using Mecha and the reason he trapped himself in the computer was to learn how to kill Godzilla's from the future people, but him killing the younger generation Godzilla means the loop won't complete, and it needs to complete and go full circle or there will be timeline consequences.

@Bagheera: The original was deader than dead in 1954 when Dr. Serizawa used the Oxygen Destroyer, but that never stopped other members of the same species from turning up and doing what they did best.

Given the nature of the time looping in this series, this idea sounds very plausible indeed!

And don't forget the moths that turned up. That, to me, is a straight-up indication that Mothra herself is heading this way.

With all the talk about singular points and the catastrophe, I'm guessing that they're going to discover that they've ignored the tendency for singular points to cross planetary ecosystems and become star-system wide problems, and that will be a prelude to the Singular Point version of the interplanetary three-headed dragon King Ghidorah to show up and challenge Earth's apex archetype-based predator Godzilla.

finished GSP and it was quite a slog ( had to re watch a few eps because...well it was late at night and the jargon tended to lull me to sleep :D )

I like it, can't say I love it yet. This initial season still feels very much like an introduction so I expect a lot more "fun" season 2.

SPOILER: Show
I'm thinking the temporary victory only foreshadows a much bigger catastrophe down the line, one for which there won't be
any help from the future. After what? 50 years stuck inside a computer program/singularity whatever I imagine the doc is probably quite the nutter and
may become an adversary using MG to wreck everything in general, that final shot I though made him look a bit deranged
who doesn't want to kick back with Misato and have a few beers?

Finally finished the series. (My life has been quite hectic lately, so it took a while.)

I rather enjoyed it. I liked the characters, and the new takes on the monsters was great to see. Jet Jaguar coming back to a screen outside of video games for the first time since Godzilla vs Megalon was a real treat!

I watched the subbed version, so I had a really difficult time keeping up with the technobabble scenes, wh8ch ended up becoming quite prominent in the series. I actually kinda chuckled when those scenes became boiled down to Jet Jaguar just reading off the technobabble text messages in the background. It's like the show runners realized that it was becoming a bit too much to keep up with, so they lampshaded that by pushing the scene in the background of another scene. Unfortunately, it did kinda result in the ending kinda washing over me. It made emotional sense, and I personally felt satisfied by it, but I'm definitely gonna need to rewatch the whole thing again in order to logically understand it. (Maybe in the dub, this time.)

It really is one of the Kinda-sorta-spoiler here...

SPOILER: Show
Jet Jaguar using the Orthogonal Diagonalizer on itself and growing to near-Godzilla size is a reference to Jet Jaguar inexplicably growing from human-size to Godzilla size in Godzilla versus Megalon. The whole thing about Jet Jaguar being the singer, the song and the reason for the song is one of the show's many, many references to Hinduism. It's not just the tech-talk and theoretical physics you need to keep up with, the ideas presented make a heck of a lot more sense once you know something of Jungian psychology and Hindu scripture and mythology (The depiction of India itself in the show is pretty dumb, though).


This show really needed more episodes and better pacing given the sheer density of information thrown at us. 16-18 episodes would have helped untangle all the stuff about Misakioku and make sense about what all the shady characters whose names I can barely remember are really up to.

The fact that they did all that with Jet Jaguar blows my mind. I love it.
