Kaiju No. 8 Season 2: Release Date & Rumours

Are you curious about the possibilities of Kaiju No. 8 season 2? Its release date, rumours, and everything else you’ll find in this article.

Kaiju No. 8 Season 2

Ask any anime enthusiast about Kaiju No. 8 season 2, and they will tell you about the wait and curiosity for season 2. Indeed, Kaiju No. 8 is one of the most anticipated anime series of 2024.

The anime showcase centers on Kafka Hibino (a soldier who belongs to the Japan Defense Force). He confronts a dangerous and scary Kaiju with the help of his close friend, Mina Ashiro (the Captain of the Defense Force’s third division). For the untrained, Kafka is not your average military personnel. After accidentally ingesting a tiny Kaiju, he gets unique superpowers that allow him to transform his human body into multiple Kaiju forms.

People who have been holding up with the manga series might have some knowledge of what’s to come next in Kaiju No 8. Season 2. However, those watching the anime with the new slate are in for a thrilling journey as they’ll watch the second chapter of Kafka’s exciting journey.

Has Kaiju No. 8 Season 2 Renewed?

Kaiju No.8 season 2 has not been renewed as the production I.G. still needs to approve it.

However, the announcement of season 2 is possible, as the first season has been one of the modestly highly anticipated anime series of the year. According to facts, it’s likely that the production is currently measuring the audience feedback and ratings before approving the second season.

When will Kaiju No. 8 Season 2 Release?

Kaiju No. 8 season 2 has no official announcement about the release date yet, but it will likely be announced soon.

As mentioned earlier, I.G. Production has not renewed the second season of Kaiju No. 8. As the first season has just been released, the studio is mainly focusing on the audience’s response. As the anime is an adaptation of continued source material, if season 1 gains enough success, then the second season will hopefully be released soon.

The Storyline of Kaiju No.8 Season 2

The official synopsis for Kaiju No. 8 reads:

“In a world plagued by creatures known as Kaiju, Kafka Hibino aspired to enlist in The Defense Force. He makes a promise to enlist with his childhood friend, Mina Ashiro. Soon, life takes them in separate ways. While employed cleaning up after Kaiju battles, Kafka meets Reno Ichikawa. Reno’s determination to join The Defense Force reawakens Kafka’s promise to join Mina and protect humanity.”

As season one of the series is still on air, it’s hard to predict the storyline for season 2. By the looks of it, the first part consists of The Man Who Become a Kaiju arc, the Raid on Tachikawa Base arc, the Captured arc, and the Sagamihara Neutralization Operating at Daybreak arc, nearly covering 28-40 chapters of the manga series.

Fans expect the Kaiju No.8 season 2 storyline to continue from Chapter 42 of the manga series, revealing the Kaiju Weapon, Cataclysm, and The Compatible User arcs.

Voice Cast of Kaiju No.8 Season 4

I.G. production has yet to confirm the voice cast of season 2 of Kaiju No. 8. However, it likely seems that the voice artists of season 1 will rejoin season 2 as the audience likes the thrilling voice effect of each character. In season 1, every character has a tone of voice that fits their personality. So, hopefully, this will be the voice cast of Kaiju No. 8 season 2;

  • Masaya Fukunishias Kaiju No.8/ Kafka Hibino
  • Wataru as Reno Ichikwawa
  • Asami Seto as Mina Ashiro
  • Fairouz Ai as Kikoru Shinomiya

Where Will Kaiju No. 8 Season 2 Coming Out?

Kaiju No. 8 season 2 will likely be released on Crunchyroll in the USA and TXN in Japan. However, this may change depending if any companies buy the rights to the show, or if it gets dropped.

Bottom Line

In short, the release date and storyline of Kaiju No. 8 season 2 has not been confirmed. At the moment, only rumours and assumptions are being made. Fans are hoping that the production team will hurry up and announce the release date in 2025. We have our fingers crossed.
