According to sources, the anime television series Kaiju No. 8, also known as Monster #8, will be based on the sci-fi manga series Kaiju No. 8. The popular Shnen Jump+ series began serialisation in July 2020 and has become quite popular among fans, and the news of an anime adaptation will make them even happier.
According to credible internet sources, Kaiju No. 8 will be adapted into an anime series in the next years. TOHO Animation, one of the titans of the Japanese animation business, will oversee the series’ production; however, they are only producing the series; an anime studio has yet to be confirmed.

Further specifics concerning the premiere date of Kaiju No. 8 anime, as well as the staff and cast, have yet to be announced, but according to the news, an official announcement will be made very soon by the various agencies.
Naoya Matsumoto wrote and illustrated Kaiju No. 8, which has been serialised for free on Shueisha’s Shnen Jump+ app and website since July 2020. Its manga chapters are collected in six individual volumes, and the series has been licenced for English distribution in North America by Viz Media. Kaiju No. 8 had sold over 6.7 million copies as of March 2022.
Monsters known as kaiju regularly attack the populace in Japan, with the Japanese Defense Force tasked with eliminating them. When their hometown was destroyed by kaiju when they were kids, childhood friends Kafka Hibino and Mina Ashiro vowed to join the Defense Force.
Mina has become well-known as the commander of the Defense Force’s Third Unit, but Kafka has repeatedly failed the examination and is now a member of Monster Sweeper Inc., whose job it is to dispose of the monsters’ dead bodies after the battle.
After a small talking monster enters his body through his mouth, Kafka gains the ability to transform into a monster himself, which the Defense Force dubs “Kaiju No. 8.” While in the form, Kafka retains full consciousness, but gains superhuman strength and becomes the first monster to elude the Defense Force.Share this Post:
