OneRepublic Releases Music Video for Kaiju No. 8 Ending Theme "Nobody"

The Kaiju No. 8 anime’s ending theme by OneRepublic, titled “Nobody,” has released an official music video. It was revealed after the anime’s final episode on June 29. The video features the band performing in a Karaoke room with Tokyo sceneries and comic-like effects.

“Nobody” by OneRepublic was first released on April 12, 2024, on multiple streaming platforms. It was written by band members Brent Kutzle and Ryan Tedder, together with Joe Henderson, Tyler Spry, and Josh Varnadore. The lyrics and album cover were also previously posted on OneRepublic’s official X (formerly Twitter):

In an interview on the official website, frontman Ryan Tedder shared that “Nobody” was specifically written for the Kaiju No. 8 anime. He said that in Spring 2023, the Kaiju No. 8 team reached out and showed them footage and storyboards of the anime. After seeing the designs that inspired him, Ryan thought about how he wanted the sound of the song to be uplifting, fun, and like a moment of brightness. He said that the song was “as inspired as possible from Japan.”

When asked about the meaning of the song’s title, Ryan described “Nobody” as “I will have your back, I protect you, I will be there for you more than anyone else in the world. There’s nobody that will be there for you like me.” Watch the full interview below:

Kaiju No. 8 is a manga by Naoya Matsumoto. It has been serialized on Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ app and website since July 2020. An anime adaptation by Production I.G. aired in April 2023. A second anime season was announced immediately after the first one ended. Crunchyroll streams the anime and describes the plot:

In a world plagued by creatures known as Kaiju, Kafka Hibino aspired to enlist in The Defense Force. He makes a promise to enlist with his childhood friend, Mina Ashiro. Soon, life takes them in separate ways. While employed cleaning up after Kaiju battles, Kafka meets Reno Ichikawa. Reno’s determination to join The Defense Force reawakens Kafka’s promise to join Mina and protect humanity.
