On the 8th of July 2021, Kaiju No 8 Chapter 39 was released after a frustrating gap of 2 weeks. It revealed a lot of exciting new characters like Gen Narumi and Kikoru Shinomiya. We got to see the internal workings of the most powerful and skilled division i.e. the first division.
There were some epic battles towards the end of the chapter and Gen’s character and prowess made us hungry for more content. We waited for two weeks to get this content and we merely got a reading time of hardly 5 minutes. We’re back to waiting for another chapter.
To soothe all our collective impatience, we’ve brought you all the information you need to know about Kaiju No 8 Chapter 40.

About The Manga
Kaiju No 8 takes place in a post-apocalyptic Japan where Kaiju monsters manifest and cause destruction to life and property. Amidst this background, we’re introduced to Kafka Hibino, who has failed to join the Defense Force even after multiple attempts. Thus, he has taken up the job of cleaning up the corpses of dead Kaiju after the battles are over.
One fateful day, a talking monster enters his body, which gives him the power to turn into a monster with superhuman strength. He’s branded as the “Kaiju No 8” and the Defense Force is after his life.
Kaiju No 8 Chapter 39 Recap
Kaiju No 8 Chapter 39 explored the dynamic between two characters Kikoru Shinomiya and Gen Narumi. Kikoru has been recently transferred into the first unit/division. We can see her vowing to get stronger to defeat the Kaiju No 8 after she gets a text message that #8 has been allowed to live.
When she meets Gen Narumi, Captain of the first unit, she’s dumbfounded by his mannerisms and sheer irresponsibility. His room is unkempt and he’s trying to win the “platinum rank” in a game he’s playing. She wonders to herself how she’ll ever respect this guy.
However, her bad first impression is shattered when she sees him single-handedly defeating a Kaiju himself, albeit with some help from his unit.
Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 40 Release Date
Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 40 is getting released on July 22, 2021, two weeks after Chapter 39 got released on July 8, 2021. Hopefully, there will be no delays.
Kaiju No 8 Chapter 40: What Can We Expect?
There are two different plotlines that Kaiju No 8 Chapter 40 might cover. Either, it will be a continuation of Chapter 39 and further explore the funny character of Gen Narumi. Or it could continue from Chapter 38 and highlight Kafka’s struggles to prove that he can be useful in the fight against Kaiju.
Either way, both scenarios sound like they’ll be amazing and we can’t wait to devour the content.
