Kaiju Girls (怪獣娘 Kaijū musume) is a series of anime shorts produced by Tsuburaya Productions and Studio PuYUKAI, and of which ran for two seasons of 12 episodes each, animated in a super-deformed style. The show depicts the lives of normal girls with the souls of ancient Kaiju residing within them, and their adventures and comedic struggles to use this power for what is right. It is loosely based on the Ultra Monster Anthropomorphic Project.

Synopsis

Humanity's battle of many years with the kaiju, giant monsters, has finally come to an end. Now that Earth has entered an age of peace, girls with the souls of kaiju have begun to appear, giving them the ability to transform into kaiju. They are known as the Kaiju Girls, and this is the powerful, transient, beautiful, and at times easygoing story of the strange fate these girls bear.[1]

The first season follows a trio of high school girls carrying the souls of the three Capsule Kaiju: Agira, Windom and Miclas, as they join an organisation called 'GIRLS' in order to protect the peace of Japan.

In the second season, Agira, Windom and Miclas are leading fulfilling lives as members of 'GIRLS'. However, a new species of 'Shadows' arise, the girls' toughest challenge yet. Meanwhile, Guts, another member of 'GIRLS', feels that something is off about herself.
