The director : Takahashi Atsushi
When I saw a notice of extras casting call that run away from Godzilla on a magazine in my childhood, I thought I could appear in a film, and tried to make a plan to stand out in a cloud. That dream didn't come true, but the plan will do today at last.
The series composition, scenario : Enjou Tou
Many riddles in this world cannot be solved. . Most of them seem more and more trivial as we are thinking about them. However, few riddles seem more and more mysterious as we are thinking about them. Let's say Godzilla is one example. I have been trying to control it for years, but a note was cut off in the middle.
I cannot believe that I can be involved in 'Godzilla' that I've been familiar with since I was a child...I was very nervous. I would be glad if I could help Takahashi director, Enjou-sensei as character composition, and other anime professionals to create Godzilla world that you can enjoy. I'm looking forward to seeing how the characters move as one of the fans!
Yamamori Eiji as Kaiju design
I would like to say thank you to all the people that gave me an opportunity to be involved in this work. With the support from a lot of staff, we can finally bring Kaiju on the screen, so I would be glad if you can enjoy it. Also, this is dedicated to my brother, who couldn't see the finished work though he loved Godzilla, he was happier than anyone else to hear the offer, and he was looking forward to seeing it.
Music : Sawada Kan
When I was in university, Ikeno Sei-sensei, my beloved teacher of composition, was handling the orchestration of the music for the film of 'Godzilla', and I also learned orchestration from Ifukube Akira-sense, who is the beloved teacher of Ikeno-sensei and created 'Godzilla' music. It means so much to me that I can be involved in this work. I really appreciate my chance to be able to join 'Godzilla S.P', which will be marking a new chapter in a long series.

Original Author Mashima Hiro
I'm looking forward to the battle scene involving Shiki's gravity ability and Rebecca's gun action. For the game, it would make me happy if both the original manga fans and also game fans can enjoy it.
As "EDEN ZERO" will be having video media, which are the anime and game, I hope that you will be looking forward to it.
Anime's General Director Ishihira Shinji
After handling "FAIRY TAIL", I will be the general director for this work as well. This is the first time I felt this tremendous pressure (haha)
This time, I am studying various thing to make the gravity actions as real as possible so this is a worthy challenge for me. In the case of using gravity to fly, I believe it would be better to express it as falling instead of flying. While brainstorming with my partner, director Suzuki, we are also thinking about making some good changes based on "FAIRY TAIL". As the original manga is a level higher than "FAIRY TAIL", so I wanted the anime to be a level higher as well.
While we are reading between the lines of the original manga, I want to draw out the amazingness of a science fiction work. Despite feeling a tremendous pressure, I felt that this is something worthy for me. Do look forward to it
