Kaiju No. 8 Latest Trailer Releases April Release Date

Kaiju No. 8 will hit screens on April 13.


Kaiju No. 8 has quickly become one of the most anticipated anime of 2024. It's based on the manga of the same name written and drawn by Naoya Matsumoto. Luckily for fans of Matsumoto's work, there's not much longer to wait as the show premieres on the Crunchyroll streaming service very soon. April 13, to be exact.

The new sneak peek at the series comes from TOHO Animation's YouTube channel, where the studio also revealed a bit of the opening and ending song that'll be playing for each episode. The opening song, Abyss, is performed by singer YUNGBLUD, while the ending song, Nobody, is performed by OneRepublic. This is especially notable because oftentimes, it's rare to have English artists perform fully in their native language in anime.

In addition to premiering on Crunchyroll, the first episode of Kaiju No. 8 will also be available to view on X (formerly Twitter), making it the first highly anticipated anime to debut on the social media app.

For those unaware, Kaiju No. 8 tells the story of a world threatened by Kaiju monsters. In order to combat them, a group called the Japan Defense Force formed to defend their land. The story follows a young man named Kafka Hibino who dreams of working on the front line, fighting these monsters, but ends up working for a company called Monster Sweeper, Inc., which specializes in cleaning up the aftermath of Kaiju battles.
