Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 50 was officially released on November 25, 2021. The chapter covers the continuation of the fight between Isao Shinomiya and Kaiju No. 9.
The chapter debuts with Gen Narumi rushing back to the headquarters. At the same time, the captain of the First Division of Defense Force was hoping for Isao to hold it while they were still not there. At the very same moment, Isao Shinomiya is facing Kaiju No. 9. One of Isao’s subordinates decides to stay with him as he also plays a big role in Isao’s weapon.
The Director General of the Defense Force started to unleash his power, and it was immediately noticed by his subordinates. According to his analysis, the full force release of an eminent monster weapon puts too much strain on the user and shortens their life. But in return, they will get a massive powerup that is equal to that of a mega monster but in human form.
The start of the hand-to-hand between Isao and Kaiju No. 9 began. While Isao already got a power upgrade, it seems that he’s being overpowered by the monster as he was still pushed back. Kaiju No. 9 acknowledges the strength of the weapon and says that the power was suitable for him to gain. While the monster was appreciating the power of the Kaiju weapon, Isao counterattacked the monster.
With this attack, Isao was able to shatter Kaiju No. 9’s head. Despite being headless, the monster stood up and started his regeneration ability, and at the same time, it started attacking Isao with its powerful punches.
The attack of Kaiju No. 9 damaged the chest, resulting in a 5% decrease. Kurusu knows that they are in a bad situation, but Isao told him that they would defeat the monster. Isao asked Kurusu to send the remaining circuit to the max towards offense. Isao’s subordinate begged him to stop whatever he was planning as he wouldn’t be able to fight again, but the Director General told him that the Defense Force already had wonderful next generations of soldiers.
Isao already knew that he’d already reached his limit and before he unleashed his remaining power, he remembered the good old days with his wife. The final spread of the chapter sees Isao as he attacked Kaiju No. 9 with an overwhelming punch.
With the final and all-out punch that Isao Shinomiya throw against the monster, did he able to end the match? Or are we going to see the rise of Kaiju No. 9 once again? Let’s find out in the next issue of Kaiju No. 8 manga.
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.
