Changes From the film

A full fledged manga adaptation of the film Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991). As people will come to expect from Shogakukan's mangas, this book takes numerous artistic liberties with the story; however, the art found inside is very good. There is noticeable detail in everything from the MBT-92's (maser tanks) up to Godzilla, whose appearance harks back more to the suit used in The Return of Godzilla (1984). As far as the story itself, it's actually better than the one used in the film Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991), with the sole exception being the omission of Shindo's character, and with him the very memorable moment before the final battle. Shindo's character isn't the only absent character though: Miki Saegusa, Professor Mazaki, and Yuzo Tsuchiashi are also gone from this version, and the story is actually better because of it, less characters that need developing, and the pacing is noticeable improved over its theatrical counterpart. Overall, there are enough changes here to warrant checking it out just to see what was changed alone.
