Japanese Godzilla articles

I'm not sure whether the articles about the Japanese Godzilla are really necessary to have on this wiki or not, since the wiki revolves around the American Godzilla. I'm considering removing the articles and let them stay on the sister wiki, The Godzilla World Wiki (which is only about the Japanese Godzilla and its universe and no other kaiju/giant movie monster-related themes or franchises, only Godzilla).

The articles I'm refering to then are Japanese Godzilla, Godzilla (2004), Godzilla (2001), Godzilla: Final Wars and Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack.

I'm not sure that they are entirely necessary. Everyone has heard of Godzilla and has at least a vague idea as to what it is, so I don't think these article's absence would lend to too much confusion. The entry for the Final Wars Godzilla may be crucial given that he appears on screen with Zilla, but GMK Godzilla has no direct relationship to the American Godzilla. The line about another monster in New York in 1998 may be oddly specific, but there's no conclusive evidence that this is canon, and even if it were, it can be easily dismissed as an Easter Egg with little true weight to the movie. Honestly, I think a part that everyone misses in GMK is that the officer might criticize America for mislabeling another monster as Godzilla, but the Japanese do the same thing when Baragon appears. I think that there may be some significance to this, but the understanding of GMK probably isn't crucial to anyone visiting an "American Godzilla Wiki". ;-)

In the end, though, the decision is yours.

Indeed. Very well, we'll see how my decisions will turn out.
