It took an existing continuity-driven series, and re-launched that as a collection of self-contained one-offs (two-off in the case of GxMG/T:SOS). The subsequent movies aren't rebooting anything, because there was no on-going series for them to reboot.
But then by that logic, is Shin Godzilla also not a reboot, because it too follows a one-off? It kind of feels like a reboot to me.
No, Shin is not part of the same project as the 6 Toho movies that proceeded it. The Millennium series was essentially a contained, six movie anthology series. It ended, and basically whatever came next would be a reboot in some sense.
Also, Shin is unique in that it explicitly disregards the original movie, which no other Toho film has done.
Ahhhh I see what you’re saying. Like, the millennium films after G2K are not reboots because they are part of an ongoing film series, even though each is their own story. Yeah that makes sense, I would agree with that.
