Jul 02, 2024 11:52 AM

Kaiju No. 8 is getting a sequel anime, though it's not officially declared as "season 2." After the first season's 12th episode, a confirmation came via the official Japanese Kaiju No. 8 Twitter account along with a short teaser trailer. Voice actor Koki Uchiyamam, known for roles in series like My Hero Academia and Jujutsu Kaisen, will join the cast as Gen Narumi, the captain of the First Division. The sequel will stream on Crunchyroll, though no specific release date has been provided yet. The first season can be streamed on Crunchyroll.

There's been a surge in kaiju media recently, with Godzilla Minus One and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire capturing audiences' attention in 2023 and early 2024. Kaiju No. 8 offers a slightly lighter take on the genre while maintaining interesting character storylines.

When will the Kaiju No. 8 sequel anime be released?

The release date for the Kaiju No. 8 sequel anime has not yet been announced. It will be available for streaming on Crunchyroll, but fans will need to stay tuned for further updates.

Kaiju No. 8, originally a manga by Naoya Matsumoto, has gained a strong following for its unique twist on the kaiju genre. The story revolves around Kafka Hibino, who has the ability to transform into a kaiju himself, providing a fresh perspective on monster battles. The manga's popularity paved the way for the anime adaptation, which has continued to draw interest from both long-time fans and new viewers alike.
