“Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla”

Intelligent and courageous female archaeologist


Reiko Tajima played archaeologist Saeko Kanagasuku, the heroine of Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla. She is a research student at the Shuri University Archeology Laboratory and is 25 years old (one year older than her actual age), and she plays an intelligent and courageous woman. Her work seems to have been created the year before the Okinawa Ocean Expo, and Saeko deciphers a mural that was excavated at the Ocean Expo’s construction site. There is a prophecy that says, “A large monster will appear that will try to destroy this world, and two monsters will also appear to defeat it.” It is also a story where Keisuke Shimizu (Masaaki Daimon), an architectural engineer, fights against aliens.
