Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 42 Release Date

Due to the Olympics event in Japan, lots of manga series have been affected, resulting in a delayed release of each chapter. Kaiju No. 8 has been regularly releasing a new chapter every week. However, it seems that the manga will be taking a break as there will be no new chapters coming this week.

Kaiju No. 8

The Olympics 2020 is set to end today, August 8, 2020, and I believe it’s not the main reason why we will not be getting a new chapter this week. While the manga creator and the publisher haven’t revealed the reason for the delay, it’s fortunate that we already have the new schedule for the next chapter of the manga series.

According to the official details, Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 42 will be officially released on August 19, 2021. Note that this slated schedule may still change and as soon as there’s any schedule change, we will give you another update.

Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 41 Recap and Discussions

Chapter 41 of Kaiju No. 8 features more of Gen Narumi and the members of the first division. The manga starts with a scene of civilians getting an earthquake. At first, the civilians thought that the earthquake was normal, but they were shocked when it became stronger and left a massive hole in the ground. Some of the civilians who survived were also terrified upon seeing the emerging monsters from the huge hole.

Back at the headquarters, Gen Narumi and the squad received the emergency notice and immediately prepared for the counter attack against the Kaijus. Without any hesitation, the first division proceeds to the area. The captain of the first division started the fight against the Kaiju by saving civilians.

Gen Nerumi connected with his team and asked each and everyone of them about the status of their fight. At Kinashi Platoon, the captain received the news that four Kaiju confirmed in the area have already found themselves in the area containment. While Miyake Platoon reported that all sighted Kaiju in their area had already been contained.

Following the reports from the two platoons, Gen called Kikoru Shinomiya and Kafka Hibino. These two are the newest members of the first division and are expected by Gen Narumi to have positive and good results.

Will Kikoru and Kafka be able to eliminate all Kaijus in the area of containment? Let’s find out once Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 42 releases on August 19, 2021.

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.
