Kaiju No. 8 Episode 2 Promo Released

Kaiju No. 8 has released the promo for Episode 2 of the anime!

Kaiju No. 8 has made its debut as the blockbuster anime premiere of the Spring 2024 anime schedule, and now fans have gotten the first look at what to expect from Episode 2! Kaiju No. 8 was already the most highly anticipated new anime premiere of the Spring overall, and the first episode of the new anime seemed to back it up as fans were introduced to Kafka Hibino and the Kaiju laden world of the series. But as the first episode came to an end, the real hook of Naoya Matsumoto's original manga franchise was placed teasing some big moments ahead. 

Kaiju No. 8 ended the first episode of the anime with Kafka being suddenly overtaken by an insect Kaiju and surprisingly being transformed into one himself. This is the real start of the series, and that means that fans will be seeing some big monster fights to come. The first promo for Kaiju No. 8 Episode 2 teases not only new characters, but Kafka's first fight as the titular Kaiju No. 8. You can check out the preview in the video above, and some teaser images from the episode below.
