Live from Banzai CanyonInteractive MapSitting in the helicopter looking very perturbed is a man in his twenties wearing an ‘X-Japan’ band t-shirt. He has short-cut dark hair, and is visibly shaking. He starts talking and the viewers hear nothing – a sound tech off-camera points at something on his lap, and he grins apologetically as he realizes that if he’s going to talk, he should do so into the microphone.
“Haha! Yes! Hello, my name is Hiro Okada, and I’m standing-in for Kenichi Suzuki today here on Monster Island. He has a nasty case of food-poisoning, so please keep him in your thoughts and here’s to a speedy recovery. Ok, what’s next?”He looks past the camera, obviously listening to someone. He nods.
“Pardon my conduct – I am normally a stand-in cameraman! We are here over Banzai Canyon as Toho Corporation’s observation blimp has spotted two more Kaiju nearby. When they meet, violence is the only possible result…He gulps. Hard.

“…1958, and again in 1988. Yes, there… oh yuck. Yep. There it is.”The camera points down at the valley wall, and a seething amoeba-like thing can be seen there, devouring a path through the forest.
“That’s just gross. Where’s Steve McQueen when you need him?” He looks on, and throws up a bit in his mouth.
“Why can’t we go look for Ebirah or something?! That’s just nasty. What is it, living snot?!” He looks past the camera, and someone can be heard shouting at him.
“Whoa! Ok, ok! Sorry folks. But it is gross. Anyway, our sources tell us that another monster is making its way here. Let’s see…”The camera pans across the treeline on the other side, and for just a second a giant reptilian shape can be seen moving through the trees. A huge eye rotates in its socket and blinks, then disappears.
“Is that it? Wow, the daughter of Barugon! Karma, the giant chameleon! Who will be victorious – Karma, or Genshior, the booger from heeeeeell!”
