Mahou Kaiju Series’ official logo (2025-)

The Mahou Kaiju Series (魔法怪獣シリーズ Mahō Kaijū Shirīzu?, Magical Monster Series) is the name given to a Japanese anime franchise in the kaiju genre that is composed of various movies and related media that were released in the span of twelve years from 2019 to 2031.

The series takes place in a shared universe with Gamera, Daimajin and several old franchises and anime shows given a revival treatment, such as Trider G7, Daitarn 3 and Zambot 3.

Development[edit | edit source]

Two weeks after Shin Gamera was released, Sam Imbecile spoke up at an interview that he envisions an expanded anime universe that is the "ultimate fantasy of anime watchers and fans" and a series of action and entertainment with some form of social commentary. He also said that Shin Gamera would no longer be a standalone movie and would serve as a launching point of Sam's new series of a shared universe that would run for ten years through several movies and TV shows. Another idea from Sam was to take several obscure and forgotten anime and place them in his new series, which he and his production team deem as superior.
