Kaiju No. 8 Stomps Back for a Sequel on Crunchyroll!

by Andre

Fanfare erupted this weekend as the monstrously popular anime series, Kaiju No. 8, confirmed a sequel following its thrilling season finale on June 29th. The announcement comes courtesy of Production I.G, the animation studio behind hits like PSYCHO-PASS and Ghost in the Shell.

Streaming giant Crunchyroll will once again hold the exclusive rights for the sequel, bringing the giant monster action to fans across over 200 countries and territories worldwide. While a premiere date remains under wraps, a celebratory teaser trailer has been released to appease eager viewers.

For those new to the Kaiju No. 8 phenomenon, the anime is an adaptation of Naoya Matsumoto’s manga and follows the plight of Kafka Hibino. In a world constantly under siege by monstrous creatures known as Kaiju, Kafka dreams of joining the Defense Force to fight alongside his childhood friend, Mina Ashiro. However, fate intervenes, and their paths diverge. Now, working as a cleaner in the aftermath of Kaiju battles, Kafka encounters the determined Reno Ichikawa, whose unwavering goal of joining the Defense Force reignites Kafka’s own ambition. Together, they vow to protect humanity from the Kaiju menace.

The production team behind Kaiju No. 8 boasts an impressive pedigree. Animation powerhouse Production I.G leads the charge, with Studio Khara, renowned for their work on the Evangelion franchise, and Shin Godzilla, contributing Kaiju artwork and design supervision. Steering the series are directors Shigeyuki Miya (Onihei) and Tomomi Kamiya (Yotsuiro Biyori), while the screenplay is crafted by Ichiro Okouchi, whose credits include Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

Adding to the series’ brilliance is a crew of talented individuals including chief animation director and character designer Tetsuya Nishio (Naruto), Kaiju designer Mahiro Maeda (Mad Max: Fury Road, Shin Godzilla, Evangelion: 3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon a Time), art director Shinji Kimura (Tekkonkinkreet, Blood Blockade Battlefront), and composer Yuta Bandoh (Towako Omameda and Her Three Ex-husbands, BELLE). The opening theme, “Abyss,” is performed by YUNGBLUD, while the ending theme, “Nobody,” is delivered by OneRepublic.

While details regarding the sequel’s plot are scarce, one thing is certain: the monstrous battles and heartfelt storytelling that captivated audiences in season one are sure to return in the highly anticipated sequel. Stay tuned for further updates on the premiere date!
