Shogakukan's Godzilla vs. Mothra adaptation is, like its predeccessor, a large improvement over the film in many ways, mostly by tightening the plot and adding all new levels of violence and drama to the story. Again, as in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, characters such as Miki Saegusa and Takuya's daughter, Midori, are removed, making room for a core trio of human characters: Takuya, Masaeko, and Takeshi Tomokane (though we will refer to him as "Nelson Jr."). Godzilla is a cold and brutal as he always is, yet Mothra and Battra are presented with much more personality than in the movie, both being rather intelligent creatures. Many a new action sequences are added onto the base storyline, yet the best changes are quite possibly the new character interactions and dynamics, which are much more entertaining than the film's.
