I've always liked Godzilla Jr. His design is definitely a good "teenage" Godzilla design, and it's a good last portion of the miniature saga developed over the last three Heisei movies.

Yeah, really like him and his fight he had was pretty cool. Much more Godzilla like than Minya. When he died, it was really sad, especially after watching him grow up throughout the movies.

Jr's fight with destroyer was actually better than godzilla's, in my opinion. Never was a fan of the offspring concept as I feel godzilla works best as a last-of-his-kind type of thing, but I'm a-okay with junior.

Junior is a pretty cool kaiju. He's a good teenage Godzilla as GodzillavsRayquaza stated. It's also pretty cool to see him grow up throughout Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II, Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla and Godzilla vs. Destroyah. Gives the Heisei series more of a sense of continuity.

Godzilla Jr. is the best of the offspring's forms. It's a perfect miniature version of Godzilla, and it has some muscle in battle. The battle with Destroyah proved it was worthy of respect. Godzilla Jr. also gave the film some emotional punch with his temporary death.
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."

Godzilla Jr. is definitely my favorite of the Godzilla offspring designs, and I always loved the way they made him look like Godzilla merged with a dinosaur. I wish later suits had expanded on that sometimes.
