Minya is both really ugly and cute at the same time, and some of his more annoying qualities in both Son of Godzilla and revenge (you can argue it’s a completely different character into revenge), come off as endearing and more child like. Children are annoying in many cases. I think In a way SoG nailed that well, and Minya is important because at the end, Godzilla becomes selfless, which is really important to his character arc over the course of the films.

Little Godzilla, while super cute, and has a touching scene with Godzilla in GVD, feels much more manufactured and Sanitized than Minya.

I love Son of Godzilla, including Minya. Everything in that movie works for what they were trying to do.

Godzilla vs Biollante is overhyped and has a mediocre human cast with the exception of Gondo.

Shiragami, Miki, and the Saradian agent were fairly memorable, too. Otherwise, yeah, I agree that they were very forgettable. But no, the movie is not overhyped, sir, how dare you. It's top ten, maybe even top five material, no problem at all.

Gondo, Shiragami and Miki are great. Also Kuroki. The Saradian is only memorable for his edgy look and terrible dialogue. The two leads are some of the most forgettable in the series. I agree that the movie is overhyped. The first three-quarters are great, but the ending falls totally flat and it's hard not to judge a movie by what it leaves you with. Honestly, Biollante is good compared to most of the other Heisei films, but pales in comparison to the better Showa films, GMK and Shin Gojira. It's novel and technically impressive enough to maybe break the top ten, but definitely not the top five.

Shiragami and Gondo are quite notable characters. Seldom do you find a man with the gall to tell Godzilla to take up smoking.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."

A tad bit off topic, but whatever happened to Orichalcum (Stumpy)? He used to post like 50 times a day.

He's relatively older than most people here so it's likely he just doesn't have time to waste here.

Or he says he's relatively older. He made like 40 posts a day so he had time.

Aren't people that are banned have a logo or something on their profile picture? Used to be the mutant from PON

Hes probably banned. I couldn't go 3 threads without seeing him saying something. Then cold turkey.

RIP Stumpy. He was a tad irritating, but I helped him find a Baragon figure that he ended up not buying. I will forever miss him. :cry:

I just realized Mr. Goji disappeared too. He wasn't as frequent as Stumpy, but he's been gone for a while too...

I like the anime trilogy more then KOTM. 8-)

The monster action in KOTM is obviously way better, but I find the plot of the anime trilogy and the lore way more interesting.

I find the anime trilogy almost unwatchable... but I still might agree with you.
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.
