Godzilla Is Now a Japanese Citizen


Even though Godzilla isn't real (shocking, I know), he has managed to secure official citizenship to Japan. Godzilla has received his own residency certificate, which was approved by the mayor of Tokyo’s Shinjuku ward where Godzilla now officially lives. 3,000 of these documents were printed and passed out to diehard fans of the gigantic lizard.

A translation by Rocket News 24 states that Godzilla was granted citizenship for the purpose of "promoting the entertainment of and watching over the Kabuki-cho neighborhood and drawing visitors from around the globe in the form of the Godzilla head built atop the Shinjuku Toho Building,"

Godzilla first appeared in 1954's "Godzilla" and was created by Tomoyuki Tanaka, Ishiro Honda, and Eiji Tsubaraya. The prehistoric beast has gone on to spawn multiple films, video games, and all manner of merchandise since his introduction to the world. The Japanese should be careful with their new resident. What if he decides that his urges to destroy are greater than those to protect?
