Before the dust settled on season 1's final episode, Kaiju No. 8 sequel is announced for Crunchyroll

It is a hit of monstrous proportions, so of course there's more on the way

One of the big hits of the Spring 2024 anime season was undoubtedly Kaiju No. 8. Not only did it bring its English dub to overseas fans almost as soon as the Japanese broadcast finished airing, but it also proved to be the best superhero anime in a season that included My Hero Academia. We loved the weird mix of body horror, action, and comedy that Kaiju No. 8 gave us this year, so we’re monstrously excited to hear that we’re going to get even more of it soon.

It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who has been paying attention for the past several weeks, of course. Kaiju No. 8 proved to be a massive hit with fans, so as soon as the final episode of the first season ended, Production I.G. announced that the series would be getting a sequel. However, it didn’t specify exactly what form the Kaiju No. 8 sequel would take; most likely it will be a second season of the anime, but it could be a film instead.

We also didn’t get a release window for the sequel to Kaiju No. 8, but that isn’t unusual for these sorts of announcements. Just like when the second season of Solo Leveling was announced earlier this year, simply getting confirmation that more episodes are on the way is usually enough to satisfy fans – at least for a while.

Just like the first season, Crunchyroll was quick to announce that they would be streaming the sequel to Kaiju No. 8 for international audiences.
