I've been a kaiju, mostly Godzilla fan, since about 4 or 5 when my parents got me a Godzilla vs. Megalon VHS featuring a poorly drawn Godzilla on the front and a picture from the black and white original film on the back (?) for Christmas. I managed to find the joy even in that abysmal stock footage/Ultraman rip-off pilot film and grow into the huge fan I am today.
I'm still sad that when I moved out of my parents, I sold my kaiju/tokusatsu VHS/DVD collection, thinking at the time I had "grown out of it." *facepalms*
Still, I always love meeting other fans. We seriously don't get enough respect.
