    Aigan Co., Ltd. (Head office: Tennoji-ku, Osaka; President: Masatoshi Sasa), manufacturer and seller of eyeglasses and hearing aids, has launched a collaboration between their "POCOP" brand, which will soon pass 1 million units in total sales, and GODZILLA MINUS ONE (ゴジラ-1.0/ゴジラマイナスワン, Gojira Mainasu Wan), the highly-anticipated latest entry in the Godzilla series. The promotion is running at Aigan stores nationwide and on Aigan's official online store.

    Godzilla currently boasts a character recognition level in Japan of over 80% * so Aigan is looking to increase brand awareness for POCOP by partnering with the King of the Monsters for their "Don't worry if Godzilla steps on you!" campaign.
