Filmography

Directing credits

Trivia

  • His wife Nanako Kaneko played several minor roles in the Heisei Gamera Trilogy; first as a zookeeper in the first film and as an interviewer in the third.
  • He and Kazunori Itō were the original staffs of the 1990 film Ultra Q The Movie: Legend of the Stars, but the members were later changed while Shinji Higuchi was included.[1][2] These members later gathered for Heisei Gamera Trilogy.
    • Kaneko and Highchi are two of few who had ever created both Gamera and Godzilla films.
  • In Japan, many have hypothesized that Kaneko's Gamera and his foes could have inspired Godzilla and Mutos in 2014 film Godzilla due to similarities in characters. In an interview on Kinema Junpo, Kaneko himself admitted this and commented as "Gareth...of course he must have watched Gamera. It's alright though.".[3]
    • Additionally, characteristics and scenes of Mothra and King Ghidorah in the 2019 film Godzilla: King of the Monsters are similar to that of Kaneko's Gamera and Godzilla works. After watching King of the Monsters, Kaneko again noted multiple similarities of the film to his GMK.[4]
    • In Godzilla vs. Kong, Godzilla's character is depicted as rather a villainous character compared to the previous film, making this somewhat similar to humanity's reactions to Kaneko's Gamera that altered after the Gamera 2: Attack of the Legion. The scene in the 2021 film for Godzilla to destroy military corps including infantries with a sweep of atomic breath makes it similar to a scene in the GMK.
