Kaiju No. 8 anime revealed the first trailer along ahead along with information on the studio. Production I.G will be animating the series, which is set to premiere in 2024.
The anime was announced earlier this year with a teaser video and visual. Studio Khara is in charge of monster design.
Kaiju No. 8 manga by Naoya Matsumoto began serialization in July 2020 on Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ and has since been collected into 7 volumes. Viz Media licensed it in English in North America and so far four volumes have been published, with the fifth set for January 23, 2022 release date. The series was initially licensed as Monster #8 in English, but the name was later reverted to Kaiju No.8, although Manga Plus, where the series is available to read for free, kept the title.
Viz Media describes the plot as:
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.
