Kaiju No. 8 Season 1 Episode Count Revealed

  • The creators of Kaiju No. 8 confirmed that Season 1 will run for a single cour.
  • This means Kaiju No. 8 Season 1 will have 12 episodes in total.
  • The finale episode of Kaiju No. 8 should air on Crunchyroll and X on June 28.

Kaiju No. 8 finally debuted on Crunchyroll with a banger first episode, and since then, all of us have been intrigued to learn about the episode count of the Spring 2024 anime. The studio did not reveal the total number of episodes ahead of the Kaiju No. 8 premiere. However, now, the wait’s over as we finally have official information on the same.

How Many Episodes Will Be There in Kaiju No. 8?

The creators of Kaiju No. 8, Production I.G, have confirmed that the first season of the anime will run for 12 episodes. We can expect to witness Kafka’s journey, which kicked off on April 13, 2024, to continue until June 28, 2024, in the ongoing season. That’s the date when the final episode of the first season will be released.

So, the first season will run for one cour, which is sort of a trend that every recent anime release has been following. For instance, the Solo Leveling anime (read Season 1 review) from A-1 Pictures also features the same episode count.

The episode count of 12 isn’t satisfying for some viewers, as most fans expect to get a lengthy season with at least 24 episodes. That being said, if the studio manages to keep up the quality throughout the season, the episode count shouldn’t be a problem. The single-cour run worked for Solo Leveling, and it could very well work for Kaiju No. 8.

Also, Kaiju No. 8 isn’t a slow-burn story, so it can very well give us a thrilling experience within 12 episodes. Let’s hope that the studio gives us the second season of Kaiju No. 8 without making us wait long.

Kaiju No. 8 follows Kafka Hibino, who transforms into one of the species he has wanted to eradicate since his childhood. While the first episode of the anime has just shown how he turns into a monster after a small Kaiju forces himself down his throat, you can expect to see more twists unfolding in the further episodes.

Also, as several fans out there started comparing the project with the legendary Attack on Titan, we might get to see how the both anime set in different universes resemble each other.
