Storyline

Ichiro is a highly imaginative, but lonely, boy growing up in urban Tokyo. Every day he comes home to the empty apartment he shares with his railroad worker father and his restaurant hostess mother. His only friends are a toy maker name Shinpei Inami and a little girl named Sachicko. The only other kids that are around is a gang of kids led by a bully named Gabara. To escape his loneliness, Ichiro imagines that he is on Monster Island where he befriends Minya, the son of Godzilla. It is through his daydreams that he watches Godzilla and Minya fight other monsters, including one also named Gabara who is just as bad a bully as the one that is tormenting Ichiro. It is through these daydreams that he learns that it is okay to fight back and face his fears. These lessons also help him to outwit a couple of bumbling bank robbers as well as finally have the guts to stand up to Gabara and his gang. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Trivia

Eiji Tsuburaya was so busy with his company, Tsuburaya Productions, during the production of this film that Ishirô Honda had to take over the effects direction, which resulted in limited special effects work and stock footage. Tsuburaya did not work on the film at all, aside from the stock footage, but is credited out of respect. See more »

Not Much Of A Movie
2 May 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Tenth Godzilla film is also the worst, an incredibly weak, pointless affair about a bullied Japanese boy who daydreams about hanging out on Monster Island with the son of Godzilla, where they try to help each other overcome their respective bullies...Godzilla does what he can to help. Shamelessly uses loads of flashback footage from previous films in a flimsy and desperate attempt to pass this off as a new story. Subplot with the fleeing crooks is silly and contrived. Film seems confused as to whether or not Godzilla really exists, or is just a movie character, which is bizarre. Worthy message about dealing with bullies is lost by the misguided ending with that poor sign painter!
