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...off course he must have watched Gamera. It's alright though.".[3]
