20. sajandi viimasel suvel avastab inimkond, et nad pole enam planeedil Maa ainuvalitsejad. Võimu haaravad hiiglaslikud olendid, kelle kuningaks on Godzilla. Pool sajandit peavad nad lahinguid omavahel ja inimestega ja inimesed otsustavad oma planeedilt pageda. 2048. aastal saadetakse esimesed inimesed 12 valgusaasta kaugusele vaatama, kas planeet Tau-e oleks sobiv koht, kuhu põgeneda. Kahjuks peavad nad pettunult naasma Maale, kus on vahepeal möödunud 20 000 aastat. Kas inimkond suudab oma planeedi tagasi vallutada?

Godzilla. The Planet of Monsters

Hiroyuki Seshita, Kôbun Shizuno

The final summer of the 20th century… when mankind learns it is no longer the sole ruler of planet Earth.

The planet is beset by the emergence of colossal creatures that roam the earth, and king among them is “Godzilla.” For a half a century, these beasts engage in ferocious battle with each other and mankind. But humans, unable to compete, prepare for exile from their home planet. In the year 2048, a select few humans are chosen by the central government’s artificial intelligence infrastructure to set out on an interstellar emigration vessel, the Aratrum, on an 11.9-light-year journey for the planet Tau-e in the Cetus constellation. But when they arrive after 20 years of space travel, the remnants of mankind find the environmental conditions on Tau-e to be much different than expected, and basically uninhabitable by humans.

One youth on board the emigration vessel, Haruo, had seen his parents killed by Godzilla before his eyes when he was only 4 years old. Ever since, he has thought of nothing but returning to Earth to defeat Godzilla. With the doors to emigration now closed, Haruo and other crew spearhead a “return to Earth” decision despite severely attenuated and hazardous conditions on board for such a long trip back.

Somehow, the Aratrum makes the return journey in one piece, but the home they return to has become an alien planet. 20,000 years have elapsed, and a new ecosystem has emerged atop the food chain. Can mankind take back its native planet? Will Haruo get his revenge?
