The big day finally arrived. Godzilla Minus One has been released in Japan! The hype and build up put me into an ecstatic state. I could barely sleep. I was up early and ready to go for the day’s first showing at Toho Cinemas Ueno. I got to the theater about an hour early and went up the elevator of the PARCO department store to the seventh floor. The first thing I did was head to the theater shop where Minus One merch was for sale. I loaded up on all the essentials such as the program booklet and Bandai figures.
