Toho Special Effects Official Visual Book vol.18 Anguirus
Large pictures of the character make it possible for readers to enjoy the texture, subtlety of the design and design details of the character. In the meantime, as there have been a lot of books
written on the description of each work, such description in this book is limited to a minimum amount.
"Anguirus" is a Kaiju that appeared in "Godzilla Raids Again(1955)", the second film of the Godzilla film series. Anguirus was the Kaiju which had the battle with Godzilla first time.
