Reptilian romance: Teen’s dream of going on a date with Godzilla comes true
Her bridezilla dreams have been realized at last.
Seira Watanabe is still a teenager, but she may be Godzilla’s biggest fan. The 13-year-old has seen every one of the King of the Monsters’ films and has also amassed an impressive collection of Godzilla merchandise and action figures. She can even do a convincing version of his roar. One day, she hopes to marry the prehistoric sea monster.
In hopes of turning her reptilian romance dream into a reality, she recently wrote to the producers of the television show “Tantei! Knight Scoop,” which takes viewers’ (frequently strange) requests and makes them happen, Kotaku reported. Watanabe asked the show for a date with Godzilla.
“My love is so great that I would like to marry Godzilla,” she wrote, which landed her a date with her reptilian Romeo.
The show’s most recent episode takes place at Watanabe’s Hyōgo Prefecture home, where she talks about Godzilla and her love for him and walks viewers through her reptile figurine collection.
Then, the blinds lift on a door, and there he is in the scaly flesh. Watanabe covers her mouth, delighted beyond words, falls to the ground and begins hyperventilating at the sight of Godzilla in her home.
Once she has recovered from her initial shock, she runs outside to take Godzilla’s hands in hers and pat his chest in astonishment.
She then packs a bento box and, with her grandfather as chaperone, goes on a date with Godzilla. The pair’s adorable itinerary included holding hands on a visit to the Godzilla Museum, eating the contents of the bento box together — of course, pretending that Godzilla is capable of consuming food and tea — and hugging on the beach at sunset. Watanabe eventually pulled down her transparent face mask to give the lizard a smooch and then asked for his slimy hand in marriage. While Godzilla declined, it was certainly a date to never forget.
