How to Watch Kaiju No. 8 Anime

Kaiju No. 8 will be premiering some time next April as part of the Spring 2024 anime schedule, and it will be streaming exclusively with Crunchyroll and X outside of Japan. It’s yet to confirm a concrete release date as of this writing, but it will be directed by Shigeyuki Miya for Production I.G. with Studio Khara in charge of the kaiju designs. Ichiro Okouchi is handling the series composition and screenplays, Tetsuya Nishio provided the character designs and is serving as chief animation director, Mahiro Maeda is designing the kaiju, Shinji Kimura serves as art director, and Yuta Bando is composing the music.

The voice cast currently includes Masaya Fukunishi as Kafka Hibino, Wataru Kato as Reno Ichikawa, Asami Seto as Mina Ashiro, Fairouz Ai as Kikoru Shinomiya, and Kengo Kawanishi as Soshiro Hoshina. Kaiju No. 8 begins to tease itself as such, “In a world plagued by threatening creatures known as Kaiju, Kafka Hibino aspired to enlist in the Japan Defense Force to defeat them. ‘Let’s wipe out the Kajju together.’ Kafka pledged to his childhood friend, Mina Ashiro. Over time, life circumstances forced them to go their separate ways and caused him to abandon his lifelong ambition. He found himself employed by Monster Sweeper, Inc., a professional cleaning company that specialises in cleaning up the aftermath of Kaiju battles.”

The synopsis continues with, “Meanwhile, Mina Ashiro is now the Captain of the Defense Force’s 3rd Division. As it stands, he is currently unworthy of fighting Kaiju alongside her. At work, Kafka crosses paths with the highly motivated Reno Ichikawa. Reno’s undying determination to join the Defense Force leaves no room for failure. His perseverance reawakens Kafka’s ambition of standing next to Mina as they protect humanity from Kaiju together. A dream frozen by time, thawed by a burning promise.”
