In the year 2048, the human race is forced to leave Earth after decades of losing against Godzilla and other giant monsters. They take a twenty-year journey to another planet called Tau Ceti-e, but upon arrival, they discover that the planet has become uninhabitable. As living conditions on their ship deteriorate, a young man named Haruo spearheads a movement to return to Earth and take it back from the monsters. The ship successfully makes the return voyage, but the crew realizes that twenty thousand years have passed, with Earth’s ecosystem having evolved to become centered around Godzilla.

Viewing Notes

The animation is great but holy hell JUST STOP TALKING!! Lots of lite-imperialism/fascism, divine punishment, etc. that seems to harken back to pre-WWII Japan. Pretty mixed on this so far but I’ll likely watch the other two.
