Details
Worldwide, Gyaos are appearing, causing panic. Meanwhile, a girl called Ayana struggles with day to day life. She is tormented by the memory of Gamera inadvertently killing her parents while fighting a Gyaos. Bullied by her peers, she ends up entering a cursed temple. From inside, a mysterious, tentacled beast appears from an egg-like object. Against the wishes of the temple's guardian, who happens to have a crush on her, Ayana raises the monster and calls it Iris. During this, Gamera appears, fighting a trio of Gyaos above Japan. The Guardian of the Universe is now focused on killing the Gyaos. This causes the death of hundreds of innocent people in the crossfire. Japan is now mobilized, seeing Gamera as a prime threat, while Ayana's growing hatred fuels Iris...
