  • SSSS.GRIDMAN

    Kaiju are giant. Enormous. They are impossible to miss. You’d know if you saw one, you would just know. Yet in SSSS.GRIDMAN a lot of them manage to fade into the background. Standing like mountains in full view yet seemingly almost invisible. After a few episodes I realised that...
