Creature Feature Friday: Kaiju No. 8 Cover Reveal

Hello Gemmies! I have a fun manga cover reveal for you today. Kaiju No. 8 Volume 1 is a new manga series by Naoya Matsumoto. This series has received a lot of positive reviews from early readers. It is full of action, adventure, and also Kaiju! I love my creature features and can't wait to give this new series a try!


Kafka wants to clean up kaiju, but not literally! Will a sudden metamorphosis stand in the way of his dream?

With the highest kaiju-emergence rates in the world, Japan is no stranger to attack by deadly monsters. Enter the Japan Defense Force, a military organization tasked with the neutralization of kaiju. Kafka Hibino, a kaiju-corpse cleanup man, has always dreamed of joining the force. But when he gets another shot at achieving his childhood dream, he undergoes an unexpected transformation. How can he fight kaiju now that he’s become one himself?!

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.

If you love Godzilla, action, and just Kaiju in general, this could be the series for you! Published by Viz Media, Kaiju No.8 Volume 1 will release on December 7, 2021, and is available for pre-order now. Are you looking forward to reading this manga?
