Kaiju No. 8 Anime Leaps into Action in New Character Visuals

kaiju no. 8

It was just a few days ago that we learned the Kaiju No. 8 anime will be bringing its take on Naoya Matsumoto’s hit manga to TV in Japan in April 2024, and now we have some electrifying new character visuals to soak in while we wait. The first one is up top and features the key members of the anti-kaiju defense force, including (from left to right) Kikoru Shinomiya, Leno Ichikawa, Kafka Hibino, Soshiro Hoshina and Mina Ashiro.

Then, pictured below, we have a striking visual for Kaiju No. 8 itself.

The Kaiju No. 8 manga has been running in Shonen Jump+ since July 2020. VIZ Media publishes the manga in English and describes it like so: 

Kafka hopes to one day keep his pact with his childhood friend Mina to join the Japan Defense Force and fight by her side. But while she’s out neutralizing kaiju as Third Division captain, Kafka is stuck cleaning up the aftermath of her battles. When a sudden rule change makes Kafka eligible for the Defense Force, he decides to try out for the squad once more. There’s just one problem—he’s made the Defense Force’s neutralization list under the code name Kaiju No. 8.
