Kafka Hibino Joins Gen Narumi and the First Division in Kaiju No. 8

Following the demonstration of Gen Narumi’s fighting abilities and skills in Kaiju No. 8, we finally got to see the return in action of Kafka Hibino. With the release of the latest manga chapter, Kaiju No. 8 reunites Kafka Hibini and Gen Narumi.

Last time, we got to see General Isao Shinomiya giving Kafka a chance to show his usefulness as they fight against the Kaijus. To make him more effective, Isao decides to put Kafka under the supervision of Gen Narumi, Japan’s strongest anti-kaiju combatant.

Their first meeting wasn’t that good and knowing the threat that Kafka Hibino brings to society, Gen warned him that he will not hesitate to take him down if he goes berserk again.

Just like what Gen Narumi told Kikoru Shinomiya, he just wants to see his skills and results and totally doesn’t care about his emotions or any of his concerns. As Gen leaves the meeting room, Kafka Hibini shows his appreciation by thanking the Captain of the First Division of the Defense Force.

After the meeting, Kafka Hibino is now an official member of the First Division led by Gen Narumi. Kafka will also be with Shinomiya, who also just got transfered to the First Division.

More About Kaiju No. 8

For many years, grotesque, Godzilla-like monsters known as “kaijuu” have been sighted throughout Japan. To combat these beasts, an elite military unit known as the Defense Corps puts their lives on the line every day to protect civilians. When a creature is killed, “sweepers” from the Professional Kaijuu Cleaner Corporation are dispatched to dispose of its remains.

Kafka Hibino, 32, is dissatisfied with his job as a sweeper. He has always wanted to join the Defense Corps and kill kaijuus for a living. After a few failed attempts, he gave up on his dreams and resigned himself to mediocrity for the sake of a decent paycheck. Nonetheless, when an ambitious 18-year-old recruit named Leno Ichikawa joins his cleaning crew, Kafka is reminded of his desire to join the military once more.

Following a series of unfortunate events and an encounter with the junior sweeper, Kafka is attacked by a parasite-type kaijuu that forces its way into his mouth, transforming him into a humanoid monster. Kafka intends to use his newfound abilities to give his lifelong dream one last shot.
