Kaiju No. 8: Landing on Crunchyroll in Spring 2024

Crunchyroll, during the New York Comic Con on October 13, made an exclusive announcement that Kaiju No. 8, a widely popular Shonen Jump sci-fi series, is set to arrive on their anime streaming service next spring.

The Essence of Kaiju No. 8

Kaiju No. 8 encapsulates the essence of an adult Peter Parker entangled within a Godzilla-inspired narrative. The story orbits around Kafka Hibino, a 32-year-old who let go of his aspiration to fight alongside childhood friend Mina Ashiro. Kafka, now employed as a sanitation worker, grapples with cleaning the aftermath of massive kaiju battles in the metropolitan area. Meanwhile, Mina holds the mantle of leadership in Japan’s Kaiju Defense Force, fearlessly serving her country.

A Turn of Fate for Kafka Hibino

Kafka’s life takes a transformative twist when a chance encounter grants him the ability to morph into a humanoid kaiju, a Kaiju Man of sorts. Balancing this newfound alter ego while pursuing his childhood dream alongside Mina becomes Kafka’s quest in the series.
