Netflix has released Godzilla's full design for the upcoming Godzilla Singular Point.
The image, designed by Studio Ghibli alum Eiji Yamamori and colored by Yuji Kaneko, features the King of the Monsters in all his radioactive glory. Godzilla's massive legs and smaller, but muscular arms serve as a homage to the Heisei-era films featuring the character. "Bear witness to a god," Netflix's official caption reads.

Though plot details for Godzilla Singular Point remain scarce, the official teaser featured a look at classic Kaiju Jet Jaguar, whose role in the series is unknown. Bios for the human characters tease that grad student Mei Kamino and engineer Yun Arikawa will both encounter Godzilla over the course of the series
Godzilla Singular Point is the latest version of an anime based on the iconic kaiju. The series is produced by Netflix in conjunction with anime studios Bones and Orange, with Kazue Kato providing the character designs for the human characters. Netflix released a trio of Godzilla anime films in 2018, starting with Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, which was then followed by Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle and Godzilla: The Planet Eater.
Directed by Atsushi Takahashi and written by Toh Enjoe, Godzilla Singular Point arrives on Netflix in April.
