A 13-year-old girl in Japan has achieved her dream of snagging a date with Godzilla.
Seira Watanabe, who lives in Hyogo Prefecture, has long been a fan of the fictional monster, collecting action figures and mastering its roar.
For this reason, she expressed her desire to date Godzilla to “Knight Scoop,” a television program that grants viewers their wishes — often the most bizarre ones.
“My love is so great that I would like to marry Godzilla,” Watanabe said.
In a recent episode, “Knight Scoop” finally granted Watanabe’s request, sending the teenager to her knees at the sight of Godzilla.
With her grandfather as a chaperon, Watanabe and the monster went out on a date, visiting the Godzilla Museum on Awaji Island.
The pair also shared lunch: a bento pack Watanabe had prepared herself. She gleefully “fed” and offered Godzilla tea.
The date ended with Godzilla waiting on the beach at sunset.
Watanabe gave the monster a hug and a smooch before asking for its hand in marriage. Unfortunately, Godzilla declined her proposal.
While the junior high school student failed to marry the monster, she sure enjoyed their memorable date.
“It’s been so long since I last saw Godzilla in a suit,” one Twitter user commented on the episode. “It’s all CG [computer graphics] in the last few years.”
Another praised Watanabe, “Now THAT’S what I call a fangirl.”
“I want to see this Godzilla-loving girl at the year-end special again! She’s the best,” another requested.
