We wrote about Kaiju No. 8 back in 2021 and found it to be a pretty great kaiju story at a time when kaiju were having themselves a pretty good resurgence in pop culture. The series has been a big hit on Shonen Jump, and in late 2021 became the platform’s fastest manga to reach 4 million copies circulated. If there were any manga that seemed primed for an anime, it would certainly be this one.
Sure, we’ll have to wait a year or two before we see the Kaiju No. 8 anime, but that gives you plenty of time to catch up on the manga and figure out if it’s for you.
