Kaiju No.8 Season 2 Plot

After the end of season 1, Shinomiya Kikoru was transferred to the First Division of the Defense Forces which is also called the strongest division. Here, Kikoru works under Captain Narumi and other troop members, all of whom are able to release at least 40% of their combat potential.

Shinomiya notices that she isn’t as special as she was in the third division and feels motivated to work harder in order to not always be the one being protected.

Around this time, the Defence Forces headquarters decides to place Hibino Kafka under the First Division in order to further strengthen the Division as a countermeasure to the increasing number of Kaijuu spawns.

Amidst their first mission together, the First Division faces the new and empowered Kaiju No.9, who claims to exterminate Kaiju No.8 and take the great Kaiju power.

We expect to see more of Kaiju No.9 and the various number of Yojuu it spawns in the upcoming season. Will Kikoru and Kafka be able to protect everyone dear to them and live up to their dreams? Stay tuned for the release of Kaiju No.8 Season 2 to find out.
