[ Story ]

Gengo, a comic-book artist, lands a job at the World Children's Land, an amusement park and museum dedicated to all the world's monsters. The company headquarters is located inside Godzilla Tower, a building that looks like a huge statue of the King of the Monsters.
Kubota, the head of the World Children's land, seems strange to Gengo. That opinion is reinforced when he meets Machiko. Her brother worked at Godzilla Tower, too, until he disappeared without a trace.
Machiko has stolen something from Kubota―a tape filled with unintelligible electronic noise. But the tape, once played, alerts Godzilla and Anguirus that something is wrong. The two monsters break out of Monster Island and head for the source of the sound.
Gengo and Machiko learn that Kubota is really an alien from Nebula M Spacehunter. Kubota and his fellow aliens―intelligent cockroaches have come to conquer Earth.
Godzilla tries to stop them, but the aliens unleash King Ghidorah and a new monster called Gigan on humanity. But as the monsters do battle, Gengo blows up Godzilla Tower and breaks the alien's control of Gigan and Ghidorah. Without guidance, Godzilla easily defeats the uncontrolled Ghidorah and Gigan vanquishes the aliens.
