A friend of mine just published a collection of short stories related to Kaiju. If you’ve got a kindle, and time/money to spare give them a read.
I have no idea what anyone in the office at my school is saying.

MY SHOWA CONTINUITY TIMELINE
Okay, so I know, automatically, people are going to call shenanigans on some things, so here are some explanations. First, I only included films that tie directly into the Godzilla series (Mostly just Destroy All Monsters) so films like Yog and Dogora could TOTALLY take place in this continuity, but there’s nothing to support the connection. (Gargantuas show up because of their connection to Frankenstein and his connection to Baragon). King Kong Escapes fits in (despite mention of Kong as being a mythical being) because I’m choosing to interpret the myth of a Kong existing on Mondo Island as being separate from the Kong of Faro.
BUT WHY EVER DID YOU MESS UP THE ORDER OF THE GODZILLA FILMS?
A couple of reasons, honestly. I placed vs. Sea Monster in 66. The title card at the beginning of Monster Zero claims it takes place in 196X…so…I push that to the end. Likewise, I pushed Son of Godzilla into the 70s, because…well reasons. Let’s FIRST tackle why vs. Hedorah takes place after Monster Zero. Mostly it’s because the film is clearly meant to be 1971 or 197X…I picked 1 as a frame of reference. Godzilla is established as a defender of earth so it makes sense that Ghidrah and MZ have happened by this point. Minya and Monster Island are nowhere to be seen or mentioned. So Son of Godzilla happens after this. Son of Godzilla happens before Godzilla vs. Gigan because..well..Monster Island is established and Minya is clearly shown as having existed. I labeled the rest of the 1970s stuff as 197X because really…you could mix and match things…have the MechaGodzilla films take place between vs. Gigan and vs. Megalon or whatever. However, those films HAVE to take place after vs. Gigan because vs. Gigan establishes the Angilas/Godzilla bromance that is verbally acknowledged in vs. MechaGodzilla. The last film is, of course, Destroy All Monsters. It was always meant to be the finale so there it is.
NOTE: A lot of this can be called inaccurate. It’s the result of me spending WAYYYY too much time thinking about how this all pieces together. It’s a curiosity and not meant to be a definitive statement about the continuity.
