The Kiryu saga concludes! Three Kaiju legends come together in a final battle in GODZILLA: TOKYO S.O.S. Godzilla rages against Tokyo while Kiryu (aka Mechagodzilla) is on standby as politicians decide whether or not to relaunch. Meanwhile, Mothra and the Shobijin show up at the home of Chujo, an ex-soldier who met Mothra in the 1960s. The Shobijin ask for the Prime Minister to take Kiryu to the sea, so the bones of the original Godzilla it's built on can be laid to rest, but Japan doesn't believe Mothra will fight in Kiryu's place. All of this sets the stage for a titanic battle between Godzilla, Mothra and Kiryu that will decide the future safety of Japan. As with its prequel GODZILLA AGAINST MECHAGODZILLA, GODZILLA: TOKYO S.O.S. was scored by Michiru Oshima, who returned with an equally-brilliant score to shake the pillars of heaven. Oshima not only brings back her thrilling themes for Godzilla and Kiryu but also introduces a wonderfully versatile theme for Mothra, stunning in ethereal and melancholic modes, and of course, ‘Mothra's Song’ appears. There's a genuine emotional resonance to Oshima's music amongst the fire and the fury, with beautiful choral material homaging Akira Ifukube's original music from 1954. It's a triumph from Michiru Oshima and a thrilling musical climax to the great Kiryu saga! - Charlie Brigden
