You accept a little bit of magic when it comes to the world. The daughter turns into a massive red panda and has its metaphorical meaning and all that. The story is welcome to go into fantastical crazy so long as there is some emotional character growth that comes with it. The daughter choosing to keep her panda is a great touch and I loved how that played out. And yes. I like Kaiju mom better than “run into a store and arrogantly accuse a stranger in public about corrupting the imagination of her daughter” mom.The second half where she literally becomes a Kaiju and rampages through the city?
