GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle (GODZILLA 決戦機動増殖都市,   Gojira Kessen Kidō Zōshoku Toshi?, lit. GODZILLA: Battle Mobile Proliferation City) is an anime science fiction kaiju film produced by Toho Animation and animated by Polygon Pictures, and the second entry in a trilogy of animated Godzilla films. It was released to Japanese theaters on May 18, 2018, and will become available to stream worldwide via Netflix later in the year.[3][4]

Description

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.[5]

Marketing

The Japanese title and release date of the second entry in the GODZILLA anime trilogy were announced on November 17, 2017, the day of the release of GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters. In addition, the first teaser image for the film was released, showing several humans standing in front of Mechagodzilla lying on the ground. The news release for the film on the official godzilla-anime.com website states that the plot will revolve around a strange "city" that still exists on Earth 20,000 years into the future. The website later promised that the film would feature a battle between Godzilla Earth, the gigantic 300 meter Godzilla seen at the end of the previous film, and Mechagodzilla.[1][3]

On January 26, Toho and Polygon announced that a stage presentation for the film would take place at AnimeJapan 2018 on March 25 in Tokyo. Mamoru Miyano, Takahiro Sakurai, Tomokazu Sugita, Yuki Kaji, and Junichi Suwabe would all be present at the event.[3][6] On January 29, Toho announced that a presentation for the film would also be held at Winter Wonder Festival 2018 on February 18, and that a three-dimensional model of Godzilla Earth and some United Earth equipment would be displayed during the event.[3]

On March 5, Toho and Polygon released a complete plot synopsis for the film, along with new concept art of Godzilla Earth firing his atomic breath. They also confirmed that the film would be released to Japanese theaters on May 18.[3] On March 19, Toho and Polygon released a new poster for the film, and updated the official website with more information regarding the film. They confirmed that all of the previous film's main cast, with the exception of Daisuke Ono, would be reprising their roles in the film. The new character Maina, a member of the Houtua people and Miana's twin sister, was also revealed. In addition, it was confirmed that XAI, who performed the theme song "WHITE OUT" for GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters, would be returning to perform the second film's theme song, "THE SKY FALLS." The site was also updated with a new English description and plot synopsis, which revealed the film's official English title as GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle.[5] On March 25, the day of the film's presentation at AnimeJapan 2018, Reina Ueda and Ari Ozawa were formally announced as the voices for Maina and Miana, respectively.[3]

On March 29, the same day the first episode of the GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters manga adaptation was released, it was announced that GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle would be receiving a tie-in novel titled GODZILLA: Project Mechagodzilla on April 25, which would also function as a follow-up to GODZILLA: Monster Apocalypse.[3]

On April 11, a collaboration poster illustrated by mecha artist Hidetaka Tenjin promoting both GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle and Pacific Rim Uprising was released. The poster depicts Godzilla Earth and the Jaegers Gipsy Avenger, Saber Athena, Bracer Phoenix, and Guardian Bravo.[3] Promotional pamphlets for the film including new information and images began being distributed in Japanese theaters on April 13, to coincide with the Japanese theatrical release of Pacific Rim Uprising.[7]

On April 19, the first trailer for the film was released. In addition, director Hiroyuki Seshita announced via Twitter that all work on the film had officially concluded.[8] The music video for "THE SKY FALLS" was released on April 23. The same day, Toho announced that the film's soundtrack would be released on June 13.[3]

It's not yet released in Netflix, and none of us live in Japan, so no one is able to add the plot until July 18 [the Netflix release worldwide]. The page remains without a plot section until the said date.

Oh. Ok. But in the novel, there is more than one egg. Besides, I haven’t seen the movie yet. So I’m not sure of any quote. Does Mechagodzilla actually fight Godzilla Earth? Sure, this might come off as being spoilers, but I just want to know. Oh, and SpaceGodzilla better appear in the third film, or a third prequel novel.

Depends on if they survived. I’m pretty sure all of the Anguirus are dead. Several Rodan are confirmed dead, but I think the prequel novel mentioned a group of them nesting in Europe, so it’s possible some survived. I wouldn’t bet on it though.

Something I want to mention about the obvious Mothra push is that Miana and Maina kind of parallel the two Shobijin that's in almost every Mothra related film.
