The return. (帰還)
In Tokyo, a young boy named Manafu and his father are among the citizens fleeing from swarms of Gyaos attacking the city. Manafu's father pushes his son out of the way just before he is eaten by a Gyaos pursuing them. As the Gyaos prepares to consume the boy, a second Gyaos smashes through a nearby building and attacks it. This Gyaos turns its attention to the boy as well, only to be crushed underfoot by Gamera. Gamera then turns to an approaching swarm of Gyaos and takes in a huge breath of air before unleashing a gigantic blast of fire that annihilates them all.
10 years later, Manafu, now an adult, watches as an eight-limbed creature devastates Tokyo. Suddenly, Gamera appears once again to challenge the monster.
