The AnimeGoji (アニメゴジ,   AnimeGoji?) is the Godzilla design used in the 2017 Godzilla film, GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters.

Name

The AnimeGoji's name comes from anime (アニメ?) and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?). The alternate name for this design, WakuseiGoji (惑星ゴジ?), comes from wakusei (惑星?), meaning "planet," which comes from the Japanese title for GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters, Gojira Kaijū Wakusei (GODZILLA -怪獣惑星-?), and again Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).

Detail

The AnimeGoji design was first shown on a poster for GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters. The AnimeGoji appears to closely resemble the LegendaryGoji, with a bulky body, a thick and short neck, large arms, jagged triangular dorsal plates, and a crocodile-like head with a relatively long snout. The biggest difference between this design and the LegendaryGoji is the appearance of his dorsal plates, which resemble a combination of the LegendaryGoji's plates and Godzilla's traditional maple-leaf shaped plates.

From the film's teaser trailer, a pair of spikes can be seen on this Godzilla's chin. His head appears more rounded and his neck thinner than the MonsterVerse Godzilla's.

According to the film's executive producer Yoshihiro Furusawa, this Godzilla has grown as a result of ruling over Earth's ecosystem for 20,000 years, and is the tallest onscreen incarnation of the character to date, even exceeding the size of Shin Godzilla.[1]

He looks more like the Heisei Godzilla in the trailer. But his dorsal plates look like the MireGoji's dorsal plates

He looks like a blend of all the different eras of Godzilla except for the Showa era. I'm actually happy they've done that. They've took the best from all eras.

Oh dear lord, they're making it even bigger than ShinGoji? How long is this competition going to go on?

same, it feels dumb to keep making Godzilla bigger and bigger, leave that to King Ghidorah or something.

One day, Godzilla will be so big that the Earth will only be the size of his knee.

Instead of a more traditional and yet unique design, they basically plagiarized LegendaryGoji and slightly edited it.

Eh, it's not the first time Godzilla has resembled a past design. Quite a few Godzilla designs have been designed to resemble ShodaiGoji and all of the Heisei designs looked very similar with minor differences. Personally, I think this design is a great choice for the anime movie. This Godzilla is meant to be the ruler of Earth's ecosystem, so it makes sense that Godzilla would look more like LegendaryGoji, a tough Godzilla, than something like MegaroGoji, a kid-friendly Godzilla that teams up with giant robots to fight insects from Seatopia.

MegaroGoji would curb-tail slide LegendaryGoji. lol. anyways yeah I think it's way too similar to LegendaryGoji. The other similar suit designs made sense because more often then not they were in the same continuity. and of course a few were based of ShodaiGoji, he was the first after all. However this film shares absolutely no continuity the MonsterVerse, and it's animated so the similarities wouldn't be the fault of cost to make a suit like with the 2000 and Megaguirus designs. They could have done something more unique than this. As I have mentioned before, there will hopefully be more differences once we get in color images of the design but for now, I am a bit dissapointed.

How the hell do you plagiarize a designed approved by Toho in a Toho made anime?

Can't wait for the dumb thoughtless fan theories claiming this is actually LegendaryGoji but 20,000 years in the future.

For what it's worth, the movie's Twitter tags most of its posts with #AniGoji.

It's just a shortening like RejeGoji for LegendaryGoji.
