Kaiju No. 8: Volume 9

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 on to the Last 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.

How Many Chapters Will Kaiju No 8 Have?

It’s hard to say how many chapters Kaiju No. 8 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 is Volume 9 About?

After the events of Volume 8 and the threat of Monster #9, it’s clear Defense Force isn’t strong enough yet. But they are already preparing. Reno becomes the first compatible user of No. 6 in history and undergoes special training. Hoshina becomes more used to his new weapons and trains Kafka in squadron-style combat techniques. Kikoru surprises Nanami and gets authorization to inherit her mother’s weapon. Will they be ready to defeat Monster #9?
