I'm pretty sure 1954-1956 is considered part of the Showa era.

i consider some parts of an era they're own era like reiwa has godzilla earth so i guess godzilla anime could have its own era

Officially, Toho splits up the Eras as:

Showa Era - 1954-1975
Heisei Era - 1984-1995
Millennium Era - 1999-2004
Reiwa Era - 2016-Present
Hollywood Era or American - TriStar & Legendary Pictures

"Monsterverse is best"

It's really not. 


MemberMothra LarvaeDec-11-2023 2:01 PM

My favortie is Monsterverse Era.





MemberGiganDec-11-2023 6:24 PM

I wonder why Toho just lumps all the American Godzillas into one era? TriStar and Monsterverse are distinct enough from each other to be warrant their own Era.

Likely because there's only one TriStar film and there's nowhere else to put it.

MemberGiganDec-12-2023 4:39 PM

 But TriStar and Monsterverse are 1) not connected, before you start bringing up the millenium series, it was unconnected by design.

2) the long haitus between TriStar and its animated series vs Monsterverse and its continuity.

I think its because its not japanese, Toho didn;t want to bother and grouping the two seperately while America bends over backwards to align the japanese films to their official era families.


G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaDec-12-2023 7:46 PM

I mean it's possible that's one criteria, but remember, Toho has listed films for specific marketing purposes excluding certain movies and others.

The Godzilla Anime Trilogy isn't Toho either and they were once excluded on a Godzilla: King of the Monsters poster featuring only live action movies. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if the Anime Trilogy is retroactively put in its own category in the future as the official website separates them into their own grouping.

It also just might look better from a marketing perspective to say that there are 4 Hollywood movies in the "Hollywood Era" instead of creating two distinct eras for TriStar and Legendary.

Maybe it's just because I don't care about the Monsterverse stuff, but frankly, I see no problem with it. There are plenty of eras with different continuities anyway, and keep in mind the Legendary Pictures releases are breaking up the release continuity of the Reiwa Series. It's not a big deal.

You would be a singing a different tune if the American markets just lump all of the japanese films into a single era but we (Americans) don't do that because we love categories. Sincerely, don't take that as me being sarcastic which I am not. We Americans love dividing stuff into categories.

Take the word Mecha or Anime. To the Japanese Mecha means everything mechanical and anime means everything animation. To an american, Mecha means pilotable giant robot and anime is for japanese animations.

AdminGodzillaDec-13-2023 12:13 PM

Yes, but Godzilla isn't America's. It's Toho's, which is Japanese.

I also don't understand how generalizing America's supposed love (?) for categorizing things and using reverse appropriation to describe things like anime has any relevance to the initial topic. So with the conversation going off topic, I'll just leave it that this is the way Toho's labeled things for consumption. The end.

Staying on topic, I would say very early Showa would be my favorite, specifically in the first six. Apart from Godzilla Raids Again, all of the others were the first G movies I saw as a boy, so they've kinda stuck with me. Two are my favorites of all time.

As for Heisei, there are a couple that I really enjoy. I like most of the Millennium era, and for Reiwa, Minus One IMHO is one of the greatest G movies (possibly greatest) of all time.

The Monsterverse is fun. On the whole I’ve enjoyed them all. Always good to have the Big G any way we can get him.

I guess I'm not good at explaining my points very well what I am trying to say.
Oh whatever, I'll just stick to the Alien and Jurassic Park side of this website.
