From the introduction:
It may seem like modern day Japan in the world you once knew but the planet you now find yourself on is about to experience exactly what sets it apart from the real world. A great devil god is about to rise from the seas to take vengeance on the world and mankind for their sins against nature. Or at least that’s what people will come to believe. Is it really the truth?
This is the world of Shin Godzilla. In just a day’s time, the beast that will come to be known as Godzilla will appear in his first form from the seas and begin to make his way onto land in Japan. The government of Japan will be left unable to respond because of fear and incompetence and hope will quickly disappear from the minds of men.
But there is a hero working to save Japan. Rando Yaguchi, a cabinet minister of Japan who realises that to save the day, action must be taken now. He will gather a team of experts and exiles to work with him soon, in the desperate hope that they can put a stop to this menace.
