Kaiju No. 8 ‘Sagamihara Neutralization Operation’ arc trailer has Kafka, Reno and Kikoru fight huge kaiju

One of the biggest anime surprises of the Spring, 2024 season for me was how much I am obsessed with Kaiju No. 8.

From its art style to crazy-fast action, its characters to its plot and, of course, its humor, Kaiju No. 8 is an absolute winner on every level.

This week, Kaiju No. 8, Episode 6 kicks off with the ‘Sagamihara Neutralization Operation‘ arc.

The first major mission for Kafka and his team, as they take on one of the strongest kaiju seen in Tokyo in a while.

TOHO Animation has just released a ‘Sagamihara Neutralization Operation‘ arc trailer, which gives us a quick reminder of where we left off last week alongside scenes from Kaiju, No. 8, Episode 6 as Kafka, Reno, Kikoru and the rest face one of the most dangerous kaiju yet.

Of course, we see Kikoru about to kick some major ass, while Reno tries to support Kafka but seems to get in some major trouble because of it.

Kaiju No. 8, Episode 6 premieres in the next few hours, and I’m all in as the episode looks amazing, aren’t you?
