Years into the future and the human race has been defeated several times by the new ruling force of the planet: "kaijus". And the ruler of that force is Godzilla, The King of the Monsters.

Quotes

Metphies: Godzilla is not invincible. It's humanity's fault for giving up on the fight.
Mulu-Elu Galu-Gu: That's what Harou thinks. He analyzed that old data because of you Exif's Gematron calculation. It was impossible for Earthlings at the time.
Metphies: Are you saying that, if the weak-point analysis has been made in time, that humanity still wouldn't have been victorious?
Mulu-Elu Galu-Gu: And if they did defeat Godzilla, then it was only a matter of time until Exif's cult took over Earth.

Disapointing
29 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

A great premise for a Godzilla re-approach but in my opinion the story and action lacked greatly. The characters were overly-trope-y and forgettable, the in universe logic was nonsense. Overly dependent on the nostalgia monster film audience and doesn't lend much to anyone else. Animation was fine but limiting in facial expressions that made it look cheap. Was really looking forward to this one but was let down on all sides.
