A new English-subtitled teaser trailer made its way online for the Kaiju No. 8 anime, which is on the way to adapt the hit manga by Naoya Matsumoto. In it we learn who will voice the main leads and the fact that the series is set to premiere in Japan in April 2024.
The main cast includes Masaya Fukunishi as Kafka Hibino, AKA Kaiju No. 8, alongside Wataru Kato as Reno Ichikawa and Asami Seto as Mina Ashiro.
As previously reported, animation production is being handled at Production I.G, with Rebuild of Evangelion‘s Studio Khara on artwork and kaiju designs. Check out the new teaser below.
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.
