Kaiju No 8 is Getting an Anime Adaptation
Known as Monster #8 in Japan, Kaiju No 8 is a popular Japanese science-fiction kaiju manga series. For Kafka Hibino, the story revolves around his aspirations to join the Third Division of Japan’s military. Kafka is determined to join the Third Division with the help of one of his childhood friends after gaining the ability to shape-shift into a Kaiju.
There is no actual anime footage in the teaser trailer. A collection of black and white photos and animations of Tokyo’s streets, with audio hints of a Kaiju attack, is what you’ll find. Before the screen goes black, the final few seconds of the video show some smoke and a creature off in the distance.
