I was just wondering with the popularity in japan for Godzilla why didn't TOHO ever think to make an anime of Godzilla?

im sure it would've been well received in japan and it definitely would have over her ein the states.

There is even an American comic bookseries being published by IDW.

Japan doesn't even have a manga series.

and the toys sell better over here

has Godzilla truly been shunnned by his homeland and been reviving a warmer welcome from us americans over the years??

I'm wondering the same, but at this point in time my guess would be that over time interest in Japan reached a plateau (possibly even fell a bit), while interest in the states grew.
Considering how popular it is in the States right now, I would think the major anime companies would at least be contemplating a series. I would think if they did make one within a reasonable time frame, they could grow interest in the series even further.

I don't know but that new Godzilla movie was terrible!! The pacing was just so slow and you barely got see them fight! But yeah I would be down with maybe a twist on Godzilla since animes where the humans are powerful are usually what takes off.

There WAS a Gozilla anime. I doubt they'll make a new series anytime soon.

A guy in a rubbersuit is cheaper than animation. Frankly all the 'serious' Godzilla movies have been dismal flops.
