Crunchyroll Announces Acquisition of ‘Kaiju No. 8’ at NYCC 2023

Crunchyroll will be showing Kaiju No. 8 on its streaming service next spring.

At New York Comic Con today, Crunchyroll unleashed a monstrous acquisition announcement confirming Kaiju No. 8 would be coming to its streaming service in Spring 2024, subtitled and dubbed, exclusively in more than 200 countries and territories, simulcast weekly after its broadcast in Japan.

The highly anticipated anime series is centered around a group of characters living in a world where giant monsters (or kaiju) attack humanity and the creatures’ destructive aftermath. Kaiju is a Japanese term that is commonly associated with television, movies, and books involving giant monsters (usually depicted attacking major cities and battling the military or other monsters), which has been a science fiction mainstay in the media for decades.

Kaiju No. 8 is animated by Production I.G (PSYCHO-PASS; GHOST IN THE SHELL), with kaiju artwork and design supervision by Studio Khara (Evangelion: New Theatrical Edition, Shin Godzilla (Pre Visualization Development)). The anime is adapted from the original manga created by Naoya Matsumoto.
