I also watched the Daimajin trilogy, from the creators of Gamera, and those were neat movies. While they're all kind of samey, (evil warlord attacks innocent village, village's god comes to life to punish the evil doers) despite being unconnected to one another, the move to late feudal japan give them a unique hook over other kaiju films. What I really wanted to mention is the monster design. Majin is a very interesting kaiju. He's a giant stone statue avatar of a god that comes alive, replacing it's stone face with an incredibly menacing green one when he comes alive. The face is a mask for the suit actor, but you can see his eyes through it, while the rest of the face is motionless, locked into an angry grimace. This gives Majin a VERY intimidating look, as his eyes scan and lock on to his next victim, a permanent scowl affixed to his face. It's great every time they do it.
