Cutting from a scene with the Interpol good guys wondering what (…the new monster Titanosaurus) erased their submarine, incognito alien underboss Tsuda (Toru Ibuki) greets leader Mugal (Goro Mutsumi, visiting earth from expiring Black Hole Planet 3) and briefs him on the ostracized human scientist (Akihiko Hirata) they’re recruiting to rebuild their (title) monster, in Terror Of Mechagodzilla,1975.
Terror Of Mechagodzilla (1975) - We're From Black Hole Planet 3 Evil disguised alien Tsuda (Toru Ibuki) leads vengeful human Dr. Mafune (Akihiko Hirata) who’s been in hiding for years, and his daughter (Tomoko Ai) to the underground lab where his cohorts, led by Commander Mugal (Goro Mutsu) have secretly re-built the title character, resuming their world-domination scheme, in Terror Of Mechagodzilla,1975.
Terror Of Mechagodzilla (1975) - Approaching The Target Area We don’t know the pretty girl (Tomoko Ai) on the rocky shore but she’s darn sure connected, as the submarine commanded by Masaaki Daimon looks for what’s left of the title character, who was mostly sunk in the last movie, opening the 15th film in the Toho Ltd. Godzilla franchise, Terror Of Mechagodzilla,1975.
Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla (1974) - It Doesn't Add Up! Godzilla, who’s been on good terms with humans lately, is inexplicably raging around Gotemba, as engineer Keisuke (Masaaki Daimon) rushes to get there, and stranger still, he fights with friendly Anguirus, but there’s this strange gleaming under his skin, in Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla, 1974.
Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla (1974) - Two Monsters Will Join Forces Meeting by chance on a jet from Okinawa to Tokyo, archaeologist Saeko (Reiko Tajima) and engineer Keisuke (Masaaki Daimon) puzzle over a hieroglyph and the statue she found in his mine, meet a strange guy in shades (Shin Kishida), then professor Wagura (Hiroshi Koizumi), who happens to be a relation, in Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla, 1974.
Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla (1974) - A Cyborg? Previously-friendly Godzilla’s mysterious rampage continues at a refinery, brothers Keisuke and Masahiko (Masaaki Daimon, Kazuya Aoyama), arriving with professor Miyajima (Akihiko Hiraka, with daughter Hiromi Matsushita) who figures it out when a second monster appears, but no explanation for a dude (Goro Mutsu Mutsumi) in some command center, in Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla, 1974.
Rodan (1957) - There's Nothing We Can Do Roll call at the coal mine, engineer Shigeru (Kenji Sawara) worries as three of his colleagues go looking for his missing brother-in-law, still no creatures seen, in Inoshiro Honda's Rodan, 1957.
Rodan (1957) - They're Going To Have Babies Recuperating from his scare with the big nuclear insects, shown two innocuous eggs by his doting girlfriend Kiyo (Yumi Shirakawa), Shigeru (Kenji Sawara) realizes what he really saw underground, in Inoshiro Honda's Rodan, 1957.
Rodan (1958) - That Thing Is The Killer! Following the first on-screen appearance of the mostly-larval form of the title character, civilian miners and cops head for the slag heap where engineer Kawamura (Kenji Sahara) and the chief (Akio Kobori) reach the obvious conclusion, in Rodan, 1957.
Rodan (1957) - A Strange Beast Inside Engineer Shigeru (Kenji Sawara) is taking a shot at reassuring his panicked girlfriend Kiyo (Yumi Shirakawa) when the worm that's been killing miners makes it's first on-screen appearance, in her apartment, in Inoshiro Honda's Rodan, 1957.
Godzilla Vs. Megalon (1973) - On Faraway Monster Island Opening the 13th feature in the Toho Films Ltd. franchise, made on a tighter schedule and budget, with narration referring to the actual American Cannikin nuclear test, the hero is aroused, and trouble for his cohabitants Rodan and Anguirus who fall into some kind of crack, in Godzilla Vs. Megalon, 1973.

Megalon (1973) - Over Three Million Years Old Scientist Goro, with nephew Rokuro and buddy Hiroshi (Katsuhiko Sasaki, Hiroyuki Kawase, Yukata Hayashi) are puzzling over the burglars who escaped when they arrived at his extra-mod home, analyzing a button they grabbed, noting progress on the robot, and getting some Easter Island dates way wrong, in Godzilla Vs.
