What is Kaiju No. 8 about?
Japan is terrorized by the Kaiju, and to stop the monsters, the Japanese Defense Force has to come forward. Meanwhile, two childhood friends, Mina Ashiro and Kafka Hibino have vowed to avenge the destruction of their entire town by joining the Defence Force. Mina successfully becomes a high-grade commander in the Force’s third unit, but Kafka couldn’t join the Force as he failed the entrance examination numerous times.
Kafka joins the clean-up crew, who was responsible for throwing the remains of the monsters killed by the defense force. One day, Kafka becomes a Kaiju himself as a monster enters his body through his mouth. Even though he remained conscious while in the Kaiju form, his body gained massive superhuman strength.
