Kaiju No. 8: Chapter 96 Release Date, Time & Where To Read

Kaiju No. 8: Chapter 96

Kafka Hibino is a man who, after ingesting a kaiju, gains the ability to turn into one himself and now is forced to navigate using his power while also trying to become part of an organization that eliminates kaiju to fulfill a promise he made with a childhood friend.

Kaiju No. 8 has been going strong for a while now, and we’ve moved onto the Second Wave Arc, which could be one of the strongest since the manga’s inception. There’s lots of focus on the supporting characters, while there’s plenty of intense action too.

If you’ve been following this manga, you may be curious to know when the next chapter will be released. Well, wonder no more!

Here is everything you need to know about chapter 96 of Kaiju No. 8, including the release date, time, and where to watch this.

Where Can I Read Kaiju No. 8?

Kaiju No. 8 can be read at a number of different places online. Viz Media is available for those in the US and Canada, while Manga Plus have the rights to drop new chapters. However, it will also be available to read on Shonen Jump too. 

10 volumes of this have dropped in paperback form in Japan, but the English translations have been delayed. In fact, the next volume holding Chapters 67–73 is set to drop January 2024! With that in mind, reading online is definitely the definitive way to catch this one.

Kaiju No. 8: Chapter 96 Release Date

Kaiju No. 8: Chapter 96 will be released on Friday 27th October at approximately 12am (JST). This means that for the majority of the western world, we’ll get to experience this one on Thursday 26th October at 3pm (GMT) / 8am (PT) / 11am (ET). Of course, it’s really dependent on how quickly these chapters are uploaded. Expect this to be pretty close to the release time though.

All other chapters are available to read on the above websites, while the ongoing anime is also available on Crunchyroll.

Expect the chapter to have roughly 28 pages long. This is also released bi-weekly.

How Many Chapters Will Kaiju No 8 Have?

It’s hard to say with Kaiju No. 8 how many chapters there will be. The anime drops next year in 2024 and that will undoubtedly spike interest in manga sales for this one. However, there’s always the danger of this one petering out and becoming repetitive. Early estimates would place this one to finish in the region of 150-200 chapters, but take that with a pinch of salt!

What Happened In Chapter 95?

Chapter 95 shifts the focus across to Mina Ashiro, who takes center stage here The powerhouse squares off against Kaiju No. 14, while we also learn more about her backstory.

Through flashbacks, we learn about how Mina had extraordinary power with firearms but her other values were all below average while training. Itami believed in her as their singularity and right now, in the present, everything rests on Mina’s shoulders.

Mina is accompanied by Tiger (who hasn’t moved through the whole chapter mind). She refuses to give up, remembering the good times with her friends, and with the target led into the subjugation zone, she hits Kaiju No. 4 dead on in one of its faces with a brilliant sniper shot… but is it enough to take it down?
