The story is based in Japan, which is constantly invaded by creatures called “Kaiju.” They come in different shapes and sizes but have the same motive, destruction and catastrophe. There is a “Defense Corps,” responsible for annihilating these kaiju arriving in the cities and a group called “Monster Sweepers,” who take over the work of disposing of the corpses of these kaiju.

Our protagonist Kafka Hibino is a 32-years old Monster Sweeper who once aspired and gave up on becoming a Defense Corp. At the beginning of the story, he gets attacked and hospitalized by a residual kaiju, and at the same time, a kaiju fly enters his mouth. This gives him the ability to transform into a kaiju. Being spotted as the 8th kaiju to be appearing in Japan, he publically came to be known as “Kaiju No.8.” The plot revolves around him as he tries to conceal his ability and uncovers his own truth gradually.
