Ohrai did not do the GMK poster. According to this site: http://ohrai...ography.html , he did a total of nine Godzilla films which would amount to:

- The seven Heisei films. - Megaguirus - GFW

There is no signature on the GMK poster when all the other posters by Ohrai have a clear signature. It was also not seen at the latest exhibition of his work.
