King Kong vs. Godzilla[edit | edit source]

Osamu is first seen in a meeting with his colleague Kinsaburo Furue and his employer, who decides to send the two to Faro Island to retrieve Soma Berries and to capture its inhabitant King Kong. No sooner they arrive on the island. They were then captured by the natives and are told to leave the island at once. Osamu solves this problem by giving the chief a transistor radio and giving cigarettes to all of the islanders, including the children. They are allowed to stay, but a storm rolls in and Osamu mistakes it for The Islanders' mysterious deity and proceeds to claim that they are foolish people for fearing lightning until he hears Kong roar and begins to pray alongside them. Eventually, They resort to stealing from the islanders' Soma supply, but during the raid, the Giant Octopus attacks the island, and King Kong comes to defeat it. Kong is then seen in Osamu's company's custody and is being shipped to Japan. On the voyage, their employer, Mr. Tako, drops in from a helicopter to see his monster. When they are almost in Japanese waters, some naval authorities inform them that Kong is not to be brought into Japanese waters. Osamu is eventually chosen to aid Kong in his battle with Godzilla by putting him to sleep with drums and a recording, and then flying him to the reptile's location. He observes their final battle.
