Am I the only one who pronounces Gyaos as Guy-ose?

I vastly prefer Minya to Minilla.

So, as a Spanish myself, my pronunciation of the names is pretty much...neutral, I would say?

There's no clear syllable that takes over the others (that's actually a normal feature of Spanish, you really have to force the pronunciation to get the strong syllable)

So for, it's pretty much:

God-se-la
Ghi-do-rah
An-güi-rus

etc etc

Althought I do say GUY-gan

(And I've always called him King Shisa, to spare myself of translation stuff)

I know, right? There's like a whole page dedicated to it! I sure am glad I stumbled into the Godzilla vs Kong thread out of idle curiosity, I was beginning to think I'd never find a place to talk about A Quiet Place. Maybe they should just cancel GvK altogether so we can all go see A Quiet Place 2 and discuss that here come March 2020?

I think a lot of those sound pretty close to the Japanese names anyway. Gigan’s japanese name is pretty subtly different, where your GUYgan might be closer to how people romanize it. Technically it’s GAIGAN.

Do people pronounce Gyaos any other way? I've heard (Gow-s) but the usual way I say it is Guy-ose.

I prefer Minya too, Minilla reminds me of the place and vanilla ice cream.

Yes. I think "Gow-s" is the more prevalent pronunciation. That's how it's said in most English language media and it's closer than "Guy-ose" to the Japanese pronunciation.

I’ve always heard it said as “gh-YOWS” and that’s how I usually say it but I sometimes fall into “GUY-ose” our of habit.

“Minya” is closer to the Japanese pronounciation (“Mini-ra” as in, “mini Gojira”) but Minilla is closer to the romanization. Pronouncing it like “min-ILLA” feels awkward, so I just use Minya as well.

I always thought it was "gh-YOWS" myself, but I can definitely see where "GUY-os" comes from lol.
And yeah, Minya rolls off the tongue better imo.

"Ghi-ah-oh-s."
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.

Are y'all seriously talking about this boring stuff?

Oh lordy.

Minya does work better.
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."

I know it's a joke, but I'd like to see a monster like that in a movie.

This is Godzilla's Peak performance, if you don't like it than you just don't like Godzilla.

And that's just the utmost unpopular opinion..
