Plot

80px-Spoiler.png SPOILER WARNING: This section may contain major plot and/or ending details. Proceed at your own discretion.

In the year 1954, Ota Murakami, a Japanese lieutenant in the J.S.D.F., and his best friend Kentaro, are leading a tank battalion deep into the heart of Tokyo during Godzilla's first assault on Tokyo.

Upon encountering Godzilla, Ota orders all the tanks in the battalion to open fire on him, but their attack merely alerts the giant monster to their presence, and he quickly destroys all of the tanks with his atomic breath, save for Ota's, which has its radio antenna broken.

Kentaro fixes the radio and the two get word that Godzilla is heading for a massive group of civilians trying to evacuate. Springing into action, Ota and Kentaro manage to catch up with Godzilla moments before he reaches the evacuees and distract him with a shot to the face. Godzilla proceeds to give chase to the tank throughout the city, and he eventually falls victim to an artillery strike.

However, that too also proves futile as Godzilla quickly recovers from the attack and gives chase to the tank yet again. With the tank's engine almost broken, Kentaro manages to veer it into a canal as Godzilla marches away into the sea.

Ota gets a broken arm and is sent to hospital. He breaks out a few days later and watches with Ken as Godzilla is 'killed' by the Oxygen Destroyer.

A few months later, Ota and Kentaro are given an offer by a Colonel Schooler to hunt down Godzilla, who is seemingly alive and is wreaking chaos across the Pacific. Ota accepts, and so does Kentaro.
