Toho Kingdom (とほ王国,   Toho Ōkoku) is a fan-made website dedicated to Toho Company Ltd. founded in 1999. Toho Kingdom has up-to-date news on what is happening in the world of Toho.

Name[edit | edit source]

Toho Kingdom's name is a combination of "Toho," the company which it's based around, and "Kingdom." Its Japanese name is とほ王国 (Toho Ōkoku), with the "Toho" part in hiragana (while Toho's is spelled in kanji) so as to avoid any conflict with the design,[1] and the "Kingdom" part in kanji.

Content[edit | edit source]

Some of the fan-made items on Toho Kingdom are the humorous cartoons by Miles Imhoff called the "Toho Kingdom Toons" (later changed to the "Totally Kool Toons"), and the K.W.C., which are fan-made fights between various monsters.

The website also features reviews of Toho movies, references of Toho movies in popular culture, DVD lists, Monster Bios, book lists, toy reviews, and a forum.

History[edit | edit source]

Toho Kingdom was started by Anthony Romero in 1999, being hosted by Homestead. In 2002, the site got its own domain, and a year later in 2003, Toho Kingdom launched the Toho Kingdom Forums. Also in 2003, Toho Company, Ltd. became aware of the site and asked Toho Kingdom to remove their logo from any unlicensed material. The years afterwards were uneventful for the most part, and allowed for the site's content to be improved upon by the site's staff.[1]
