MM9 by Hiroshi Yamamoto

Japan is beset by natural disasters all the time: typhoons, earthquakes, and...giant monster attacks. A special anti-monster unit called the Meteorological Agency Monsterological Measures Department (MMD) has been formed to deal with natural disasters of high “monster magnitude.” The work is challenging, the public is hostile, and the monsters are hungry, but the MMD crew has science, teamwork...and a legendary secret weapon on their side. Together, they can save Japan, and the universe!

From my understanding this is a Japanese novel translated into English. Now this is my first translated novel, and while I'm sure some of the finer details were lost in the translation, it is a very enjoyable book. Like it say on the back cover, monster (or kaiju) attacks are treated like any natural disaster and it features a team who's job it is to study and help develop strategies to counter act them. This isn't a regular novel per se. It's broken down into, for a lack of a better term, case files, each with a beginning middle and end. This book consist of five cases, four with some interesting, and a couple of interesting original, kaijus and a fifth featuring a multiheaded dragon of myth. If you are a fan of Godzilla or Gamera or any other giant monster you may want to check it out.
