Who we are
This group is dedicated to fan art of the Kaiju Girls of the Daikaiju Academy setting once hosted at Neo Monster Island. The Kaiju Girls, or "K-Girls" for short, are sexy pinup girl characters based on daikaiju or giant monsters, mostly from Toho Studios' Godzilla movies, with a few giant robots thrown in for good measure. We also provide a home for art of kaiju-morphs who have not been made official on the site.

What sort of art do we accept?
We accept art of characters anthropomorphised from giant monsters of or inspired by the Japanese daikaiju genre, as well as some giant robots/mecha (particularly those with a connection to daikaiju) and smaller monsters from movies/TV/etc. of the tokusatsu genre. The emphasis is more on sexiness than accuracy.

Our main focus is on the characters from Daikaiju Academy universe, but we are not restricted to those characters.

While cool in their right, we are not accepting sexy versions of the classic Universal monsters, such as like Dracula, Wolfman, Mummy, vampires, werewolves, etc., or of mythological or traditional fantasy humanoid creatures such as Medusa, lamias, elves, goblins, etc.

All forms of art are accepted as long as they are on topic: drawings, stories, 3DCG, sculpture, photomanipulation, poetry...and photography, if you can find one to model for you. ;)

What's a kaiju?
Kaiju is Japanese for "monster". Specifically, it refers to the sort found in monster movies, rather than in myths or fantasy. Daikaiju are giant monsters, the best known being Godzilla and King Kong.

Although most of them are based on daikaiju, the girls themselves are usually depicted as being human-sized. They are occasionally depicted as giants, though, and we do not reject "macro" pics.

What is Daikaiju Academy?
Daikaiju Academy (DKA) is a fictional setting, a school, located on Neo Monster Island in Japanese territory, that serves as the home of the K-Girls. Most of the K-Girls are students or instructors at the Academy, which was set up to handle the unique needs of its unusual student body..

The Kaiju Girls were originally mascots for Shin-Goji's site, but eventually grew popular enough that a site dedicated to them was spun off. However, Shin has since devoted his time and energy towards his photography and deleted the site, so we remain as the sole home of the setting.

What gallery folder should I submit my work to?
If your art features one of the official Daikaiju Academy characters, it goes into one of the following folders, according to the monster the character is based on:
:bulletgreen:Gojira clan DKA - Kaijumorphs based on the King of Monsters, Gojira
:bulletgreen:Ghidorah clan DKA - Kaijumorphs based on King Ghidorah and his variants
:bulletgreen:Mothra clan DKA - Kaijumorphs based on Mothra and her various forms
:bulletgreen:Alien k-morphs DKA - Kaijumorphs based on kaiju from outer space (other than Ghidorah)
:bulletgreen:Aquatic k-morphs DKA - Kaijumorphs based on oceanic or amphibious kaiju
:bulletgreen:Bug and Crustacean k-morphs DKA - Kaijumorphs based on insectoid, arachnid, or crustacean kaiju
:bulletgreen:Burrowing k-morphs DKA - Kaijumorphs based on kaiju known for digging under the ground (Baragon and Anguirus)
:bulletgreen:Winged k-morphs DKA - Kaijumorphs based on non-insectoid kaiju with wings
:bulletgreen:Robotic k-morphs DKA - Characters based on mecha and super robots
:bulletgreen:Reptilian k-morphs DKA - Kaijumorphs based on reptilian kaiju that don't fit in any of the other categories. This includes kaijumorphs based on the Roland Emmerich Godzilla (aka GINO)
:bulletgreen:Other k-morphs DKA - Kaijumorphs based on kaiju that don't fit in any of the other categories
:bulletgreen:Groups - Pics of groups of kaijumorphs from multiple categories

Pics of characters who are not part of the core cast, but who are intended to exist in the Daikaiju Academy universe (for example, they're a character in a Daikaiju Academy fanfic), go in Guest characters.

Pics of kaiju anthros who are not set in the Daikaiju Academy universe go in Non-DKA kaiju anthros. This includes, but is not limited to, unnamed kaiju anthros, personal kaiju anthro OCs, and kaiju anthro characters from other fictional universes or franchises such as Super Sentai series or City Of Heroes.

And finally, fiction set in the Daikaiju Academy universe, whether illustrated or purely prose, goes in Stories & Comics.

SERIOUS UPDATE: A new kaiju community site has been established, Gormaru Island!…

This new site welcomes all fans of Kaiju Eiga... including Kaiju Girl fans [the site has just started a thread devoted to Daikaiju Academy!!!] Anybody here is welcome to join!

PS: To Boogie209 [who I see has recently joined this group], hope I didn't steal your thunder be posting the invitation before you!

Not at all you actually saved me a fantastic amount of time in posting to the group, your efforts in reaching out quickly is a welcomed aspect of your person :D 

But yes what he says is true, Gormaru Island is very open minded and accepting of Kaiju Girls, and we hope that perhaps in time you all will allow the girls a welcoming stay upon the island. Think of it as a secondary Neo Monster Island for them, a new place for them to call home along with their fans and creators! Along with any fans who have created original K-Girls (Or Boys)!

So I just had a thought, and I'm not even sure whether it's a good idea or not... how interested would anyone here be in a WWE-style Kaiju Girl Tournament?Shrug
I decided to put my Pacific Rim X Daikaiju Academy plans on hold, do to a major premise change, and this new idea just kind of came to me recently. This sort of thing's been pretty successful on another site I'm a member of, so I figured why not try something new around here... assuming that I could pull this off by myself, and if not would there be any people here interested in participating?

Thanks a bunch for hosting "That does it!"
AdventDestiny Mar 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
You know, I recently released something; when I started Daikaiju Academy: REVIVAL and Pacific Rim X Daikaiju Academy, I hoped that they would reignite the popularity of the old days... which I think weren't as old as I thought! Didn't the Shin-Goji sever all ties with DkA in 2012, which was only months before I joined? Anyway, I thought writing a new big story would get people here more interested in participating more, get the kaiju girl creative juices flowing again!

But I realized that this plan wasn't going to work, because only a few of the veteran contributors and creators are still here, and they usually don't have the time to devote to drawing or writing about sexy kaiju anthromorphs. Recently, some new people, several of whom are actually very good artists, have shown interest in contributing to the PRxDkA project, and that's when I realized that instead of reviving the old spark, I should be trying to create a new creative spark, find some new blood, a new generation that has the spare time to waste doing sexy kaiju pin-ups and stories!

And what better way to bring in a new audience then to do a reboot? That's what Daikaiju Academy: Origins is going to be, not just a prequel to Pacific Rim X Daikaiju Academy, but a new beginning for Daikaiju Academy's story, showing [my interpetation of] the birth of GINA, the creation of the Daikaiju Academy school, and when GINA first met the core group of Kaiju Girls! I'm especially hoping that the combination of Godzilla's epic return and the beginning of summer will help to start off a new kaiju girl craze around here, maybe even get things as active as they were back in the beginning... while avoiding the mistakes that sunk the ship, so to speak!

I was reading through GINA's old bio, there is a very brief mention in the friends list of someone called Juniya, a younger sister. Is this perhaps what KIGA was called before she went all... well, KIGA?
Junia was the name of a Minilla girl that with removed early on from canon (due to drama), you can just ignore it. Minami's not currently her sister anymore, either as i understand it.
AdventDestiny Mar 13, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
That's good to hear, since I've already started working on GINA's origin story premise; I'm taking the advice you gave a while back, about not overthinking things, so I'm building a script, know where I'm going to go, and then start writing! If this change in technique works with GINA's short story, then I'll use it to get Pacific Rim X Daikaiju Academy started!
AdventDestiny Mar 13, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I've started work on developing a new short story, the prequel to Pacific Rim X Daikaiju Academy... I call it Daikaiju Academy: Origins... GINA.

I'm trying to build a new, coherent backstory for the Daikaiju Academy setting and characters, using details from the old site's Kaiju Girl bios, and filling in the gaps along the way. To try this out, I wanted to create a new story that explored GINA's origins, at least the origin that I consider canonical in this setting I'm creating. I also wanted to tie in the origins of GINA with the origins of the Rim Girls, give the story and GINA's character a little more depth.

I've got most of the old bios from the old site, except for all of Roequ's characters [I couldn't use the characters themselves, but there might be details or history about the other characters hidden in their bios that I could use], or the Mothra Girls Mina, Reina, and Meo, so if anybody could help me get a hold of those I'd be very grateful!

Then I just have to sit down, read through all the bios, compare histories and events, edit here or there when information contradicts itself, fill in the unexplained gaps with my own imagination, and then I should be all set to get started on the prequel, which'll be a good practive run before I get fully into PRxDkA, finally!
