The animated sequel to Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is merely two months away and Toho Animation has begun marketing Chapter 2 in the saga. For months now, fans and entertainment sites have been referring to the film by one of two literal translations. The popular title was the awkward Godzilla: Decisive Battle, Mobile Breeder City. The other translation was the slightly more refined, Godzilla: The City Mechanized for the Final Battle. The Official Godzilla Anime Website has revealed that the film's international English title is Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle.

The website also confirms the same staff and cast will be returning to the film with the exception of Daisuke Ono's Col. Leland. (For obvious reasons.) Additionally, a more well rounded English synopsis has been delivered by the official site:

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."

The manufacturing plant may be the key to both reactivating and enhancing MechaGodzilla to fight a 300 meter incarnation of the King of the Monsters. It also seems to hint at Mothra, given the Houtua tribe's "god" and her "two eggs". The character Miana also has a twin sister named Maina--Tribal twins are usually a dead ringer for Mothra's priests in the Godzilla franchise. (Shobijin, Cosmos, Elias.)

XAI will once again perform the film's theme song. (Most likely to be heard during the end credits, ala Planet of the Monsters.) The song is called, "The Sky Falls".

Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle stars the voice talents of Mamoru Miyano (Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Ultraman Zero: The Movie), Takahiro Sakurai (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans), Kana Hanazawa (.hack//Quantum), Yuki Kaji (Attack on Titan), Tomokazu Sugita (Attack on Titan), Junichi Suwabe (Space Dandy), Kenta Miyake (Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn), Kenyu Horiuchi (Bleach, One Piece), Kazuhiro Yamaji (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children), Kazuya Nakai (Dragon Ball Super) and Ari Ozawa (Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun). The film is directed by Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare) & Hiroyuki Seshita (Knights of Sidonia) from a screenplay by Gen Urobuchi (Kamen Rider Gaim).

The film will hit Japanese theaters May 18th, 2018.

The first film in the Godzilla anime trilogy, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is currently streaming on Netflix.

I'm super hyped! Godzilla Earth! MechaGodzilla! Mothra! Godzilla Tokyo S.O.S. 20,000 years later! 

TheGMan123

MemberTitanosaurusMar-19-2018 2:09 PM

You know, looking at Mechagodzilla further, he kinda looks like he's got guns sticking out from him all over.

Suuuuuper hype inducing. I really am falling in love with this Mechagodzilla design. I'd be willing to bet this film will set up Mothra, but I doubt we'll see her until the third film, as this film will probably focus mainly on Godzilla and Mechagodzilla's duel. I also know it isn't a practical thing, but I DO hope Mechagodzilla has a roar and I really hope it's amazing. Kiryu's half machine, half Millennium roar was haunting. I want something akin to that for this one.

REALLY EXCITED FOR THIS!

Cannot wait to see this sequel! Now that we know our characters and get an idea of the plot thanks to the last movie we can just coast down this plot and hopefully get a longer movie. Does anyone have an idea of the length of time for this movie?

I want to know more about the Houtua tribe and the relation they have with Mothra. This is going to be great!

This is gonna be sweet, although one thought. Do you think Godzilla will actually die/be defeated in the third film? 

TheGMan123

MemberTitanosaurusMar-20-2018 8:50 AM

Given that there's a third film in the first place, I have a feeling he's not gonna be taken down.

If this theme of brief victory and hope being dashed soon after continues (I'm told it's pretty common in Urobotcher's works), then expect a twist that sets our heroes back when they think they've won.

MemberTitanosaurusMar-20-2018 9:18 AM

Now I am even more anticipated about this film. Awesome.

Kulaas

MemberMothra LarvaeMar-20-2018 1:06 PM

I don't think Godzilla will die, personally. I think he's way too far in growth to be killed. I'd imagine even if they replicated what they did with Filius, Godzilla Earth would just Unicron himself back together, ala Transformers: Prime. 20,000 years of adaptation and change had to have made him more resilient. Maybe at best they'll co-exist, but that'd go against earlier canon where Godzilla actively hunts down and destroys everything.

TheGMan123

MemberTitanosaurusMar-20-2018 1:15 PM

Heck, he even killed Mothra, who was worshipped as a goddess of peace and the Earth.

This Godzilla is looking to make Earth his and his alone.

MinecraftDinoKaiju

MemberTitanosaurusMar-20-2018 2:01 PM

I didn't know that. Is that in the manga? Btw, real shame that the manga has more detail in it than the movie. Wish they made that into the movie instead of what we got. Still a good movie, but such a shame for such a missed opportunity.

MinecraftDinoKaiju

MemberTitanosaurusMar-20-2018 2:06 PM

I know that Wikizilla made a timeline video which included both, but like I said, such a shame that such an opportunity was missed.

To me, this is the most hilarious parody of Planet of the Monsters I have ever seen

KingKaijuGojira

MemberTitanosaurusMar-21-2018 8:06 AM

At the end of Planet of the Monsters, the Bilusaludo were looking at Filius's corpse that they seemed to notice something that made them gasp and refer to him as a real monster. I wonder their were just staring at the corpse and remarking how hard it was for them to win or if it's something else that may come into play in the next two films?

JurassicNight

MemberTitanosaurusMar-21-2018 9:18 AM

What if they actually let Godzilla win in the third film, like he actually ends up eradicating all human life. That would be a heck of a twist

TheGMan123

MemberTitanosaurusMar-21-2018 9:24 AM

It'd also be in line with Urobotcher's thematic style, at least from what little I've heard from folks who know his work.

MinecraftDinoKaiju

MemberTitanosaurusMar-21-2018 9:33 AM

Either that, or the same ending from Final Wars (minus Minilla) could happen at the end of the final film. But we'll just have to wait and see.

"It'd also be in line with Urobotcher's thematic style"

I keep thinking this trilogy is going to get a lot weirder and turn into a bloodbath by the third film--I felt like the first film was way too neat and too... normal, for Urobuchi.

TheGMan123

MemberTitanosaurusMar-22-2018 5:27 AM

That's because Godzilla reigns him in :P

JurassicNight

MemberTitanosaurusMar-22-2018 10:03 AM

That would be pretty sweet for the third film to just be a giant bloodbath. Have them unloading everything they got at the Big G while he in turn just goes nuts on them.

@KingKaijuGojira

They were just looking at the odd body structure, which is what made them comment. Since the monster following its destruction looked like twisted metal.

MemberMothra LarvaeMar-22-2018 9:21 PM

I agree with y'all, the third film should be crazy! I've actually always wanted to see a Godzilla movie where the humans don't find a way to beat him

MinecraftDinoKaiju

MemberTitanosaurusMar-23-2018 10:04 AM

Or maybe, ultimately, some version of the Oxygen Destroyer could be used in the third film, with the twist being that it kills not only Godzilla, but also kills the humans and aliens, leaving the planet to become a dead wasteland. This is just my idea, but what do you guys think?

The Legend of Brian

MemberBaragonApr-04-2018 11:06 PM

Is it just me or is anyone else confused by how we haven't gotten a trailer yet? The movie comes out in a little over a month and we still haven't seen any footage.

MinecraftDinoKaiju

MemberTitanosaurusApr-05-2018 9:36 AM

^

You've got a good point. Not even the hint of a teaser trailer, which is really shocking to me. It's almost like they want this to be a Direct-to-DVD sequel like they did with Disney movies back in the early-mid 2000s. But I hope this isn't what they're planning.

MinecraftDinoKaiju

MemberTitanosaurusApr-05-2018 9:39 AM

Hey, can someone please check this article: Kong has met his match before ever meeting Godzilla...? I think it either doesn't work at all or it just doesn't work for me. I can't see this on my screen, and I think it is broken.
