Wait! You mean to tell me that after 61 year of stomping around this country saving the Japanese from all kinds of mutant monsters that this guy wasn’t even a citizen? Well inally, film star and reigning King of Monsters Godzilla, 61, has finally been recognized as a citizen of Japan. After living in the country for more than half a century, the atomic immigrant was awarded honorary citizenship by Tokyo’s Shinjuku ward earlier this year. According to ANN, however, Godzilla’s paperwork was only finalized last week.
According to the monster’s new residency papers, Godzilla’s official duties include “promoting the entertainment of and watching over the Kabuki-cho neighborhood and drawing visitors from around the globe in the form of the Godzilla head built atop the Shinjuku TOHO Building.”
