The Anatomy of Japanese Monsters

See inside Godzilla, Gamera, and a couple of other movie monsters in poster form. If I could only read Japanese to find out where their weak spots are, then I, too, could save the world! -via Digg

Upodate: These are from the book An Anatomical Guide to Monsters by Shoji Otomo with illustrations by Shogo Endo, from 1967. More information can be found at Pink Tentacle, including partial translations. -Thanks, algomeysa!

A friend informs me the spiked, horned one is Anguirus, from the 2nd Godzilla movie, GODZILLA RAIDS AGAIN (1955). Interesting that this book included Gamera, since Godzilla, Mothra, Anguirus are from Toho, and Gamera is from rival studio Daiei. This book must be on Big Man Japan's bookshelf!
