A direct sequel to Furankenshutain tai Chitei Kaiju Barugon/Frankenstein Conquers the World from 1965:

As numerous ships are attacked off the coast of Tokyo, army & press soon suspect Sanda, Frankenstein's monster of the previous film - even if the monster was killed in the previous film. However, leading Frankenstein expert doctor Kitei (Russ Tamblyn) strongly rejects the idea of his monster living in the sea & attacking boats, since Sanda was always a gentle creature. So, while his assistant (Kenji Sahara) goes to the coast to investigate the shipwrecks, Kitei & his assistant Akemi (Kumi Mizuno) go to the mountains, where they believe Sanda to be if he was still alive. Sure enough they find traces of Sanda, while the Shipwrecks show genetic traces similar to those of Sanda, but not quite the same. Sure enough, not Sanda was the wrecking monster, but his evil clone Gaira. Soon the army manages to hunt down & corner Gaira (who is allergic to light, but when they move in for the kill, he is saved by a suddenly appearing Sanda, who nurses him back to health, but, when he finds out about his evil ways, changes his attitude towards him & chases him away. Gaira now goes to Tokyo to wreak some decent havoc, with Sanda close behind, the army again moving in for the kill & Akemi - sort of Sanda's substitute mother - & Kitei trying to save Sanda. A giant battle that destroys large parts of Tokyo ensues, that ends with the monsters in Tokyo harbour throwing ships (!) at each other, before the 2 of them vanish into an underwater volcano.

 

Of all his giant monster movies, this is one of director Inoshiro Honda's lesser efforts, spoilt mainly by the very ridiculous monster costumes, that fail to convince even for a second. However, it does show a great love for childish destruction, helped by the usual great miniatures by Eiji Tsurubaya, and: How can a movie that has a monster throwing tanks at houses (!) & 2 monsters throwing ships (!) at each other be all bad ?!
