Learn more about Kaiju no. 8

The Japanese manga series Kaiju # 8, also known as Monster # 8, was written and illustrated by Naoya Matsumoto. As of July 2020, Shueisha’s Shnen Jump + app and website offered a free series. The series has been licensed by Viz Media for publication in English in North America.

For many years, grotesque monsters known as “kaijuu” (including Godzilla) roamed all over Japan. Members of the Defense Corps, an elite military unit, risk their lives every day to protect civilians and fight these beasts. When a creature dies, it is left behind to “sweepers” or professional kaijuu cleaners.

Kafka Hibino, 32, is not satisfied with his job as a street sweeper. From a very young age, he aspired to join the Defense Corps and kill Kaijuus to start a new life. After a few failed attempts, he abandoned his ambitions and settled for the mediocrity of a living wage. Kafka’s desire to return to the military is reminded of when an ambitious 18-year-old employee, Leno Ichikawa, joins his cleaning crew.

After a series of unfortunate events and interactions with the young bird, Kafka comes into contact with a kaijuu parasite that burrows its way through his mouth and transforms his body into a humanoid monster. Kafka wants to give his lifelong dream one last chance with his new abilities.
