In this video we’ll be laying out the timeline of the anime GODZILLA universe in detail. All of this is taken directly from the prequel
novel “Godzilla: Monster Apocalypse,” the theater program, and the “INVESTIGATION
REPORT” provided on godzilla-anime.com. Without further ado, let’s commence: Kamacuras, the first confirmed giant monster,
appeared in Manhattan on May 4, 1999, and proceeded to destroy the World Trade Center
and devastate much of the city. At the same time, Kamacuras larvae appeared in the
subway system under New York and preyed on people. Because Kamacuras appeared in a densely populated
area, the military response was delayed, resulting in an estimated 2.5 million casualties. Kamacuras was finally destroyed near Portsmouth,
New Hampshire, 72 hours after making landfall using bunker buster bombs. Dogora was the second kaiju to appear. It first made contact with the Russian space
station Mir in the atmosphere, then appeared over the English capital of London in September
2002. Dogora absorbed thermal energy from the attacks
of the British military and moved on to Manchester. Dogora was eventually defeated when chemical
plants throughout the United Kingdom and EU mass-produced chemicals containing active
ingredients from spider venom and sprayed them into the air. By the time Dogora was defeated after two
days, major landmarks such as the Tower of London and Big Ben were destroyed and an estimated
3.9 million people were wounded or killed. Kamoebas appeared in the Philippines just
two days after Dogora’s defeat. Another one, designated “Kamoebas II,” later
appeared in Guam. Anguirus appeared from the frozen soil of
Siberia, while Rodan emerged from Paektu Mountain in November of 2005. Both monsters converged in Beijing and attacked
the city, which the Chinese military responded to by commencing Operation Hedorah. Discovered inside a waste mine in Hebei in
1999 as a colony of sludge-like microorganisms that consumed chemical substances in water,
the creature was subsequently studied and converted into a bioweapon. Reconfigured into a giant black mist-like
figure with red and yellow eyes, Hedorah successfully killed the two monsters, but went out of control
and proceeded to destroy Beijing and Tianjin overnight, then disappeared after consuming
all of the pollutants in the area. The ordeal resulted in damage throughout the
Hebei province and an estimated 8.2 million casualties. A year later, a second Anguirus, denoted “Anguirus
II,” appeared in South Africa. In February of 2012, the 10-meter-tall monster
Gabara was discovered by Albert Ichiro Santos in the Amazon rainforest. The ugly monster slaughtered and tortured
wildlife such as crocodiles. It was reported to have been injured in a
thermite explosion and then fell into a river, where it was eaten by crocs and piranhas. Also in 2012, Megalon emerged on the west
coast of Africa and made his way across the continent, destroying several small nations
along the way. Some northern Africans subsequently escaped
to Europe, though in the second half of the 2010’s, the Kraken-like monster Gezora appeared
in the Mediterranean and hindered refugee movement into Europe. Near this time, countries around the world
began fighting back against monsters, with at least the USS Saratoga killing Ebirah III
in 2015. Dagahra first appeared in late November of
2017, and made contact with the American nuclear submarine Seawolf in the South Pacific Ocean. Two weeks later, the U.S. Navy, including
the USS Saratoga, engaged Dagahra in American Samoa and successfully injured him, but could
not pursue him due to the presence of Barem in the water. Three days later Barem arrived at the port
of Pago Pago, and eventually caused one-third of its inhabitants to die of bacterial infection. Two weeks after that, on Christmas Day, Dagahra
approached Australia, but the Australian Navy did not attack out of fear of releasing Barem
into Australian waters. Dagahra made landfall in Sydney and devastated
the city before moving on to Newcastle. The government was thrown into chaos and in
the confusion gave the ill-advised order to attack Dagahra. Dagahra was fatally wounded and flew out to
sea, where it died and contaminated the surrounding waters with huge numbers of Barem. This led to a pandemic and famine later known
as the “Red Christmas Scourge,” which by 2018 claimed the lives of 3 million people. Australia’s waters became heavily polluted
by the Barem, and it received no foreign aid and eventually collapsed. An estimated 6.7 million people were killed
or wounded in Dagahra’s attack. A flock of Griffon attacked Egypt in June
of 2021, resulting in the fall of the capital city of Cairo. Failure to eradicate the early Griffons resulted
in large numbers of them later on. Next year, Megalon returned and destroyed
the Republic of South Africa. The population of the African continent was
cut in half, with between 300 to 400 million people fleeing and seeking refuge in Europe
or the Middle East. On May 11, Orga landed at Izmir, Turkey, the
site of the largest refugee camp for those who fled from Africa to Turkey. The military response was delayed, and the
creature reached Ankara before it was finally destroyed. Officially only 1.15 million casualties were
reported from the attack, however the death toll likely exceeded 10 million if refugee
deaths were taken into account. That same year, Manda appeared in the Atlantic
Ocean, which remained under his control for over a decade. Two years later, Maguma attacked North Korea. As the creature moved towards Seoul, South
Korea, the United States launched a tactical nuclear missile at Maguma, killing it and
marking the first use of a nuclear weapon against a kaiju. Throughout the 2020’s, the Giant Octopus was
regularly sinking ships in the Pacific Ocean, while the Atlantic Ocean continued to be menaced
by Manda and Gezora, and the Bering Sea by Ganimes. Starting in the second half of 2030, far more
ships began to disappear than the normal amount that the Giant Octopus would claim, including
a nuclear submarine. Additionally, Kamoebas IV washed ashore dead
on Odo Island. Dr. Kyohei Yamane proposed that it was killed
by an even larger predator, which he gave the name “Godzilla” after a mythological
dragon from the island’s folklore. Later in the year, Godzilla made landfall
in Los Angeles, where he simultaneously killed Anguirus IV, Varan II, and Baragon II. Godzilla completely destroyed LA and San Francisco
and caused an estimated 8.7 million casualties, before returning to sea. Godzilla relanded in the west coast of the
U.S. in December of 2031, destroying Seattle and easily breaking through the military defense
line at Colorado Springs. In desperation, the U.S. government hurled
150 nuclear warheads at Godzilla totaling at nearly 40 megatons of power. Godzilla walked away from it unscathed, and
disappeared into the Gulf of Mexico. The presence of Kumonga and multiple Kamacuras
in the U.S. was reported in the wake of Godzilla’s raid. By this point, the world population has dwindled
down to an estimated 2.3 billion, from about 7 billion in the race’s heyday. In 2034, Godzilla destroyed most of western
Europe, causing 6 million casualties as he moved across the continent. Godzilla disappeared for 8 years after heading
into the Arctic Ocean. Next year, the Exif aliens made first contact
with humanity, appearing in New York. The year after, Bilusaludo aliens arrived
on Earth, appearing above London. In the same year, Megaguirus and flocks of
Rodan were reported to have regularly preyed on refugees in Siberia trying to leave in
the railways. In 2039, the “Earth Union,” composed of humanity,
the Exif, and the Bilusaludo, was formed. New anti-kaiju mechs and superweapons such
as Powered Suits, Anti-Nuclear Energy Bacteria and Jaguar J were constructed with Bilusaludo
aid and began being used against giant monsters. G-Force launched “Operation: Eternal Light”
in order to reclaim the Atlantic from the kaiju. The underwater battleship known as the Goten,
under the command of Captain Jinguji and Unberto Mori, engaged Manda in the Strait of Dover
and successfully killed him. G-Force engaged Biollante in Normandy, with
the underground combat vehicle Moguera eventually destroying Biollante by burrowing into the
nucleus in her root cavity. In October of 2039, the French military claimed
to have killed Godzilla after bringing down a bipedal kaiju with back fins and a long tail. The kaiju was quickly identified as a different
species dubbed “Zilla,” and it turned out that the creature asexually reproduced
countless offspring, which overran the city of Rouen. After great difficulty, G-Force eventually
succeeded in wiping out the Zillas, which while frail and susceptible to conventional
weapons, had fertility as a strength. Meanwhile in Paris, Gorosaurus appeared following
Godzilla’s attack on the city. He was killed in December by the combined
efforts of G-Force and the Bilusaludo. Godzilla reemerged in 2042. In the same year, the provisional world government
was moved near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and construction began on the two interstellar
emigration vessels, Oratio and Aratrum. Godzilla is estimated to have caused upwards
of 300 million casualties worldwide by 2044, as he appeared 8 separate times in two years. By now, only about 1.02 billion people were left. In 2045, the United Earth launched “Operation:
Great Wall,” a desperate attempt to stop Godzilla. 2000 nuclear warheads are detonated near the
Himalayas, opening a large fault that trapped Godzilla underground. However, by January 2046, Godzilla used his
atomic breath to free himself. Soon, he broke through the Indian defense
line, resulting in 200 million casualties, and then disappeared into the Bay of Bengal. Meanwhile, humanity and the Bilusaludo began
construction of Mechagodzilla, the ultimate anti-Godzilla weapon, in Hamamatsu, Japan. However, Godzilla arrived in Hamamatsu in
March, and engaged in a decisive final battle with the United Earth. Godzilla is triumphant, and Mechagodzilla
is abandoned before it could be activated. In 2048, 15,000 of the 700 million humans
still living on Earth were selected by the United Earth’s artificial intelligence Omni
Electio to flee the planet aboard two interstellar emigration crafts, the Oratio and Aratrum. The Oratio set off to carry 10,000 passengers
to Kepler-452, while the Aratrum carried 5,000 passengers to Tau Ceti-e. After 22 years of space travel, the Aratrum
arrives at Tau Ceti-e, but finds its atmosphere to be completely uninhabitable for humans. Captain Haruo Sakaki and a faction dubbed
the “Earth Returnists” seize political control aboard the ship and decide to use
the ship’s experimental hyperdrives to instantaneously return to Earth and attempt to defeat Godzilla
using Haruo’s “Godzilla Extermination Strategy.” The Aratrum emerges from hyperspace, but due
to time dilation nearly 20,000 years have passed on Earth. Haruo and his team land on the planet’s
surface, but find that a new ecosystem has developed around Godzilla… …that’s where Part One leaves us off, and
that’s the timeline of the GODZILLA anime universe. Thanks for watching! SKREEEEONGK!

  1. and even past the fact that we never got this in the anime…

    we got 3 space snakes claiming to be king ghidorah…

  2. I have no idea if I like anime godzilla, but I like his unsettling goofy grin. Who thought that hot mess was a good idea? The more I look at him, the more Godzilla Earth/Anime Godzilla looks like an exaggerated parody of Legendary Godzilla. Legendary Godzilla's kinda wide legged and rounder, fatter than previous interpretations, so Godzilla Earth looks like lumpy sumo wrestler with his girth and squatting figure.

  3. It's interesting….it's almost like an alternate timeline, without the original lizard Godzilla emerging just after the second world war, and how the world was thrown into peril without his aid.

  4. I still can't get over the fact that they used a generic pteranodon skeleton for Rodan. That's just lazy!

  5. I like this universe only cuz it has a bunch of monsters and it shows the downfall of humanity. Also zilla is in it so I love it

  6. So in that universe there's no Mothra, King Ghidorah, King Kong, Gigan, or Destoroyah. Seems like a missed opportunity.

  7. they all panicking while the kaijus destroying the world, but then you realize there's one single nation that haven't got any single kaiju attacks throughout the timeline.

  8. Why couldn't this be the Netflix series? It seems like they put more work into all the lore than the actual stories for the series.

  9. gabaras: bullies crocs
    10 minutes later
    accidentally falls into a river and gets eaten by crocs and piranhas.

  10. I should make a series of animated movies called planet of the monsters,
    Yeah, i stole the name of a already existing movie but who cares the movie sucked,

  11. Surprised no one said in that univerese: To Fight Monsters, We Created monsters of our own
    Edit:Mecha Pacific Rim Esque, hedorah is close tho

  12. Well It’s Toho’s Fault For PICKING A NONE GOD DAMN GODZILLA FAN TO BE A DIRECTOR,Anyways I Enjoy The Anime Trilogy. My Opinion.

  13. this is way better than the movies and would be awesome if they made 1or 2 seasons of everything in the books.

  14. The people in Greenland are lucky and iceland and Suad I arabia and madagascar Canada is also safe and hungray France is also safe with bahrain

  15. Kumonga and many Kamacuras this may connect the Godzilla Anime Trilogy and Son Of Godzilla together in the same Universe

  16. 5:59 And those were the 3 kaijus that were gonna be in GMK but got kicked out due Mothra and King Ghidorah taking over their places (Except baragon)

  17. No hate but, was Toho trying to copy the Monsterverse? I mean, its kinda similar since they both have websites, and places where the Monsters hit in the anime, and where the Monsters are in the Monsterverse

  18. They should’ve made the movie like final wars with all of the Kaiju here like there could be an abandoned city filled with Zillas and mothra could’ve been in the city

  19. The one thing I actually do like about the Anime Godzilla Universe, is that even monsters like Odako, Gorosaurus, and Manda can be dangerous

  20. Godzilla Movie Timeline:
    1st: Monster Apocalypse
    2nd: Project Mechagodzilla
    3rd: Planet of the Monsters
    4th: City on the Edge of Battle
    5th: Godzilla Planet Eater
