Details
In 1999, many of Earth's monsters are being kept on Monsterland on Ogasawara Island. Through checks, the monsters are imprisoned in an ecological preserve that allows scientists to study them. The peace is short lived, as the base is attacked by an alien race called the Kilaakian. Controlling the humans and monsters from the isle, they send the creatures on a global attack. The crew of the spaceship Moonlight SY-3 flies to Earth to investigate. They learn of the aliens, their plan to control the Earth and that they are behind the attacks. The Moonlight SY-3 crew begins to research how the Kilaaks mind control works, while the aliens concentrate their attacks on Japan in retaliation with Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra and Manda sent to attack Tokyo.
