Also known as the classic era of Godzilla. The “Showa” series depicted Godzilla’s debut from 1954 onwards until 1975, transforming from what could be seen as natural disaster to humanity’s ally in the threat against other worldly threats. The success of these films led to the creation of the less relevant kaiju franchise, Gamera, by Daiei Film.
