By the advent of the 21st century, much of humanity was dead, having been trampled over by a new master, Godzilla. A select few among mankind took to the stars in a spacefaring vessel called the Aratrum in search of "the promised land," the planet Tau-e that could sustain human life. But the migration plan fails, and the remnants of the human race decide to return to Earth. But the distortions in space-time and the distance traveled means that mankind is returning to a completely changed Earth some 20,000 years later. The returnees, led by hero Haruo, prepare to take the fight to Godzilla based on a strategy that has been 20 years in the making. Carried out with the help of two alien species, the Exif and the Bilusaludo, the humans succeed in defeating Godzilla in a costly battle to the death.

But the victory is short-lived. Rising from the depths of the planet is a new breed of monster, dubbed "Godzilla Earth." Evolving for 20,000 years, the creature stands 300 meters high, weighs over 100,000 tons and wields such overwhelmingly destructive power that Haruo and company have no choice but to run for their lives.

Coming to Haruo's rescue, however, is Miana, a member of an aboriginal tribe called the Houtua. They are the first humanoid people the returnees have encountered. Could they descend from humans? "Our tribal god was destroyed by Godzilla. All that we have left are these eggs. Anyone who has tried to fight or resist him has been drowned in fire," the tribespeople say to Haruo, who responds with: "This is our last hope of recovering our home."

Meanwhile, Bilusaludo commander, Galu-gu is elated to discover that the Houtua tribe's arrowheads are made of a nanometal or a self-sustaining metal. It had been developed in the 21st century as an "anti-Godzilla" killer weapon deployed at their decisive battle fought at the foot of Mt. Fuji, but had been destroyed before it could be activated in the form of a "Mecha-Godzilla." The nanometal was its base substance, and proof that the manufacturing plant can still be used.

Ending Theme


Jul 30, 2019
I will admit, I was never and will never be a fan of the largely popular franchise Godzilla. God knows how many times they will recycle the story to grab some more cash. But man, even so, this movie is so exciting to watch and is completely better than the first movie Netflix released.

The story takes off from the first movie's ending when most of the human's tropes have been wiped out by the almighty Godzilla. Seemingly all hope has lost but that's not the case for our main character, Sasaki Haruo, who by accident found out about a kind of human still survive on ...

Mixed Feelings
The story is fine. I still wish this could've been a full anime series instead of three movies because there is a lot of world-building without fully using it. Things are brought up without needing those new elements in the story. If it were a full anime series, we could spend more time with those things rather than using a tiny bit of them as plot devices. I also disliked the main character. I dislike main characters that are emotional and value their own things over the things of other people. I feel like this movie has the main character do the opposite of growth. ...

"Descended or not, they're not an evolution more like a new generation."

Part of me really wants to like this trilogy but it's making it incredibly difficult due to how shocking the quality of the actual story is. The positive stuff from the previous adventure carries over, like the music and animation but dear god has it just nose-dived into pure angst.

Following the events of Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, the Aratrum is unable to contact Haruo and the rest after their encounter with the original Godzilla. The Captain orders the Aratrum's withdrawal if drones fail to find survivors within 48 hours. Haruo reunites with some ...
