The Plot of Monster 8
Table of Contents
Kaiju monsters assault the Japanese people on a daily basis, and the Japanese Defense Force is entrusted with eliminating them. Kafka Hibino and Mina Ashiro, lifelong friends, pledged to join the Defense Force after their town was destroyed by kaiju when they were children. Mina has become well-known as the commander of the Defense Force’s Third Unit, while Kafka has repeatedly failed the examination and is now a member of Monster Sweeper Inc., a clean-up team tasked with disposing of the monsters’ dead bodies after the battle. After a small talking monster enters his body through his lips, Kafka gains the ability to transform into a monster himself, which the Defense Force dubs “Kaiju No. 8.” While in the form, Kafka retains full consciousness, but achieves superhuman strength and becomes the first monster to elude the Defense Force.
