Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 37 – The Human Of Monster #8

Kaiju No. 8 chapter 37 - Kafka is consumed by his Kaiju's rage

Cornered into a position that threatens his promise, Kafka consolidates every essence of his being to will his body into action and away from the blind rage consuming the Kaiju within him. To stop Monster #8, Kafka first stops himself. The hand that pierced his core jolted his mind back into consciousness. Injured yet in control, Kafka meets Isao’s regret with a expression of who he is. Kafka is not Monster #8, he IS Kafka Hibino. After such a display, beyond the terror Monster #8 can bring, the Defense Force now has concrete proof that Kafka can stop himself from running rampant if such a situation arises. The evidence Kafka has provided should be enough to merit his survival despite the risk it could pose to the Defense Force. And if Chief Shinomiya oversees Kafka’s presence, the Defense Force should be more comfortable allowing Kafka to remain within the Defense Force.

Kaiju No.8 Chapter 33-34 – The Heart Of A Monster

Kaiju No.8 Chapter 34 - Kafka detained by the Defense Force

Kafka has been captured and the fear overwhelming the Defense Force Leadership has directed their mindsets to the termination of the source behind their terror. Fear of the power the Kaiju possess and fear of the uncertainty surrounding the Kaiju’s existence. The line between Humanity and Kaiju has been drawn in their minds and to keep their sanity within the confines of their understanding, the actions they arrive at involve treating Kafka as the Monsters they combat against. Although unlike the rest, the Chief of the Defense Force, Isao Shinomiya, takes a direct approach in assessing the danger Kafka possesses. If Chief Shinomiya believed wholeheartedly that Kafka was a complete threat, the Defense Force would be executing him. But instead, Chief Shinomiya has opted to test Kafka, both his DNA and human tendencies. Kafka is undoubtedly a Hybrid, but can he prove to Chief Shinomiya that the heart he possesses is not that of a monster but that of himself – someone born with the desire to help others?

Kaiju No.8 Chapter 30-32 – Eyes Of Enmity

Kaiju No.8 chapter 32 - Mina and the Defense Force react to Kafka's Kaiju form by attempting to apprehend him

It was an inevitability. The current separation of Humanity and Kaiju is one entrenched in conflict. A deeply rooted past that has conditioned the minds of the Defense Force to treat any and all Kaiju as destructive enemies to humankind. Regardless of the circumstance, the figure that stands before them has the form of their “enemy” and at a loss for what else to do, the Defense Force soldiers fall back on what they know, protocol. Apprehend the embodiment of their terror. A form resembling their enemy. One humanity associates only devastation, animosity and trauma with. The confrontation between two childhood friends dawns a reality filled with ruthfulness. Will their paths resolve to continue forward together or will this moment fracture it into division?

Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 13-14 – Beyond The Threshold

kaiju no. 8 chapter 13 - Mina prepares to attack the Kaiju

What a captivating display of power. Unleashed overwhelming power. Ashiro Mina has expressed to all those present just what is capable from one person when the force of their will exceeds the boundaries of rational limitation. And beyond just taking down the Kaiju, Mina ensured it was completely annihilated. Any unexpected surprise the Kaiju may have held due to a lack of information could be removed through destroying it completely. One could say that Kaiju was eli-Mina-ted O.o.

Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 8-11 – Hiding In Plain Sight

Kaiju No. 8 chapter 8 - Kafka charges up a punch

Apart from the Defense Force being aware of an increase in activity by the Kaiju, they appear oblivious to the extent of the Kaiju’s true capabilities. Furthermore, would the Kaiju have lulled the human race into such a frozen state that challenging the concept of Kaiju having higher intelligence seems implausible to the Defense Force? And lets not forget the mini-dragonmosquitofly that had itself consumed by Kafka after intentionally choosing and locating him. Something doesn’t add up and I suspect deeper involvement between the Kaiju and the human race or at least a faction of the Kaiju. But answers to those mysteries will have to wait as the focus has now shifted to Kaiju integrating themselves directly into human society via the Kaiju Cleaning Company, Monster Sweepers Inc.
