One of the best Godzilla Eras in the entire Franchise the Showa Era is made of three parts, The Original Duolgoy, The revival series, and the Champion Series.

My question is which do you think is the best?

The Original Duology includes the Films Gojira (1954) and Godzilla Raids again, and takes on a somber tone.

The Revival Series Includes the films from King Kong Vs Godzilla to Destroy all monsters, in this Godzilla is a reluctant defender of Earth and generally is more lighthearted.


The Last of the series, the Champion Series is known for its Goofiness and silliness. Godzilla essentially becomes a superhero for japan at this point and saves them from aliens and other monsters.

Though I love the original the Revival Series is probably my favorite of Showa Era

Even thought the Original is my favorite, I do love the revival series and it has more options as well.

blackberries (especially these really good domestic-grown blackberries at this one fruit stand) are pretty good, 'specially when you get big sweet ones

Interesting way to split it up, thought not out of line.

My favorite is definitely the Golden Age, which you seem to have defined as the Revival.

There was a bit of a gap between the two series of the duology and revival. And this is the standard form I see when it’s divided.

Thing a lot of people tend to overlook is that there actually wasn't a gap even if it wasn't Godzilla. Honda, Tsuburaya and their writers were still hard at work on sci-fi/kaiju material all the way to Godzilla's return in 1962:

1956 - Rodan
1957 - The Mysterians
1958 - The H-Man, Varan: The Unbelievable
1959 - Battle in Outer Space
1960 - The Human Vaper
1961 - Mothra
1962 - Gorath

Up through King Kong vs. Godzilla, there was no Godzilla series. It was just called, "Toho's Science Fiction/Fantasy Series." From Toho's point of view it wasn't much of a revival, just a continuation of what they had been doing for nearly a decade.

Oh, I just mean the Godzilla series, but I see your point

Yeah, I know you do, I'm merely pointing out that there really was no revival from the point of view of Toho or the audience. King Kong vs. Godzilla just stacked on top of the other sci-fi/fantasy movies. After which Toho realized they might have a franchise on their hands and decided to cross Godzilla with another one of their successful creations.

Destroy All Monsters is my favourite, so I'll choose "Revival".

Im Durp

BaragonMember478 XPMay-25-2021 11:52 PM

Going by these titles easily the Revival series. Most of my problems with showa come from the later films though I really love the last 2 installments for the mechagodzilla duology.
