The Way of the Sword Presents: Kaiju Summer, Vol. 2!

Hosted by Ryan Ferguson!

After the devastation of Godzilla’s resurgence, a miniature arms race ensues to collect his cells. The cells are obtained by the middle eastern nation of Saradia, where geneticist Genichiro Shiragami is tasked to study them. However, the cells are sought by various groups, leading to a terrorist attack that kills Dr. Shiragami’s daughter Erika. As Shiragami retreats into isolation, he combines Godzilla’s genetic code with those of a rose and his own deceased daughter. The result is Biollante, an eerie plant of titanic proportions, and a countermeasure against Godzilla should the monster ever be freed from its volcanic tomb.

Presented in Japanese with English subtitles.
