Kaiju No. 8 made a historic debut on X (Twitter) and Crunchyroll this month.

After a solid premiere, it seems like Kaiju No. 8 is ready to take on its next release. If you did not realize, the much-anticipated anime went live at the start of April with a historic premiere. And now, we have been given a first look at episode two ahead of its release.

As you can see below, the first stills for Kaiju No. 8 episode two have been released, and they are as delicious as you'd like. The new episode will check in on Kafka after the man is turned into a half-kaiju, half-human titan. The last time we saw the hero, he was escaping from the hospital, and he is about to have a squad on his tail. Mina was called to take care of the threat, so Kafka and Reno better run as fast as they can.
