Godzilla Raids Again (also know as Godzilla's Counterattack, The Return of Godzilla, The Volcano Monster, Gojira Strikes Again, Gigantis, Gigantis the Fire Monster or Counterattack of the Monsters) is a 1955 Japanese science fiction kaiju film featuring Godzilla, produced and distributed by Toho. It is the second film in the Godzilla franchise and Shōwa series. The film is directed by Motoyoshi Oda and stars Hiroshi Koizumi, Setsuko Wakayama, Minoru Chiaki, and Takashi Shimura, with Haruo Nakajima as Godzilla and Katsumi Tezuka as Anguirus.
An English dubbed version, titled Gigantis the Fire Monster, was heavily re-edited and released theatrically in the United States by Warner Brothers in 1959 on a double bill with Teenagers from Outer Space (or with Rodan in some areas). The English dub was later retitled Godzilla Raids Again. Godzilla Raids Again was released in Japan on April 24, 1955.
