Synopsis (paraphrased from Wikipedia): A year has passed since the battle between Gamera and the Gyaos and Japan has struggled to rebuild its cities in the meantime. One night, a meteor shower appears and one huge meteor plunges into the snow of a mountain in Sapporo. Large insect-like aliens have hitched a ride on this meteor and they soon disembark to set up a hive in the bowels of the city’s subway tunnels, from which they grow a plant which they use to catapult a seed into space so that they can colonize yet another world. The military can only watch helplessly, as any attempt to destroy the plant would destroy all of Sapporo. Just as all hope is lost, Gamera emerges from the sea and heads toward the besieged city.
