10 Best Anime to Watch for Fans of Kaiju No. 8

Kaiju No. 8 has successfully wrapped up its first season, captivating viewers with its gory action, gripping storyline, and unique twist. The series’ success has led to exciting news for fans: A video game adaptation is in the works!

While the wait for the game continues, there are still plenty of similar anime series to satisfy your kaiju itch. If you’re in the mood for a more exciting monster anime experience, here are our top picks you should add to your watch list:

1. Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters

If you’re a fan of the iconic kaiju monster Godzilla, then the 2017′ Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is a must-watch. Set in a world where Godzilla has laid waste to humanity, a team of surviving humans embarks on a mission to take back Earth after 20,000 years. A young Captain, Haruo Sakaki, blames his parents’ deaths on Godzilla and plans to defeat the king of monsters.

Get ready for epic battles between Godzilla and giant monsters, stunning visual effects, and a story that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is the perfect blend of monster mayhem and thrilling action. The movie is about an hour and a half and is available to watch on Netflix.

2. Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin)

This popular monster action anime may come across as too mainstream to some, but if you’re looking for intense, terrifying battles, this might be your cup of tea. Set in a world where humanity lives behind massive walls to protect themselves from colossal Titans, this anime series follows a group of young soldiers known as Survey Corps as they battle these monstrous beings.

Spanning 4 seasons and a total of 94 episodes, this series’s storyline, visuals, and characters are undeniably distinct. The narrative follows the journey of Eren Yeager and his friends as they strive to free humanity from the clutches of the Titans. His fellow Survey Corps members, Mikasa Ackerman, Armin Arlert, and other key characters, each bring their own unique strengths and personalities to the battle. Whether you’re watching for the first time or revisiting a beloved series, this anime will leave a lasting impression. Attack on Titan is available on Crunchyroll and Netflix.

 

3. Parasyte: The Maxim

Parasyte: The Maxim is a gripping monster anime series that combines science fiction and horror. The story follows Shinichi Izumi, a high school student who becomes the host of an alien parasite. Just like how Kafka Hibino is infused with a monster, this symbiotic dynamic is the same with Izumi and the shape-shifting parasite “Migi.”

As Shinichi struggles to control the parasite and protect humanity, this anime series explores themes of identity, coexistence, and the battle between humans and monsters. Viewers can watch the anime series on Crunchyroll and Netflix.

 

4. Chainsaw Man

Chainsaw Man is another symbiotic duo that stands out similarly to Kaiju No 8. Protagonist Denji is thrust into an unexpected situation that changes his life upside down, for better or worse, wielding immense power from a devil – turning himself into a devil-human hybrid. It has an unexpected plot twist and a riveting story, and it doesn’t shy away from giving viewers bloody good fight scenes.

In the world of Chainsaw Man, the monsters are in the form of devils, but we are confident that you will still find yourself rooting for Denji and his adorable companion Pochita, just like how Kafka Hibino in Kaiju No. 8 captured viewers’ hearts. The anime is available on Crunchyroll and Netflix.

 

5. Devilman Crybaby

This modern adaptation of Go Nagai’s classic manga series is an intense anime series. The story follows Akira Fudo, who merges with the devil Amon and becomes Devilman. This transformation has made Akira and his friend, Ryo, make a pact to uncover and eradicate the demons from the world. It’s a bit more serious, and the visual seems simplistic, but if you can turn a blind eye to those parts, the storyline is where it shines most.

As in the manga, this series explores themes of morality, sacrifice, and the darkness within humanity. It also explores gore and sexual themes, so its mature content is definitely different from Kaiju No. 8. But if you’re in the mood for a more dark and violent anime with the protagonist having immense power from an evil otherworldly being, this show is for you. Devilman Crybaby is available to watch on Netflix.

 

6. Fire Force

Fire Force and Kaiju No. 8 share several similarities: they both feature special task forces tasked with combating monstrous creatures that appear throughout Japan. In Fire Force, these creatures are known as Infernals, and they can possess humans and burn them alive. As a result, Shinra Kusakabe joins Company 8, utilizing his unique devil’s footprints to keep the region from succumbing to destruction.

Kafka Hibino and Shinra Kusakabe possess the enemy’s abilities that are kept hidden from the public, with only a few people aware of them. Both characters discover their unique powers as they progress through their respective stories. With each new encounter they face, Kafka and Shinra gain a deeper understanding of their true potential. Plus, the visuals and sounds are definitely satisfying to experience. Fire Force is available to watch on Crunchyroll and Netflix.

 

7. Seraph of the End (Owari no Seraph)

In this supernatural anime series, the world has been wiped out by a virus, leaving children enslaved by vampires. The protagonist, Yuichiro Hyakuya, is one of the few survivors dedicated to destroying the vampires and avenging his fallen friends.

Kafka, the protagonist of the anime series Kaiju No. 8, faces his own challenges as he struggles to control his transformation. Similarly, Yuichiro also grapples with the physical and psychological changes of acquiring the enemy’s power. Both have the same purpose of using those powers to save innocent civilians.

The series offers viewers a captivating combination of awesome fight scenes, an intriguing storyline, and stunning animation. However, it is currently in its second season, and there are only 24 episodes available. Overall, viewers can expect a thrilling journey filled with action and mystery. Seraph of the End is available on Netflix.

 

8. World Trigger

World Trigger, like Kaiju No. 8, is an anime that delves into the realm of monstrous creatures. Both series feature protagonists who belong to organizations dedicated to fending off these otherworldly beings. These monsters, called Neighbors, pose a significant threat to humans, exhibiting abnormal strength and immunity to conventional weapons. As a result, the Border Defense Agency springs into action, developing powerful weapons known as Triggers to combat these fearsome creatures.

Another interesting similarity between the two shows is the appearance of a humanoid Neighbor disguised as a transfer student, the same case with Kaiju No. 8’s humanoid kaiju, Kaiju No. 9. While each series has its own distinct narrative and characters, World Trigger will keep you engrossed. World Trigger is available on Crunchyroll.

 

9. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is widely regarded as one of the most popular anime series, and for good reason. Its intriguing story and dynamic narrative encompass moments of lightheartedness and intense drama. While there may be fewer random monster encounters than in Kaiju No. 8, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood shares a similar blend of camaraderie and the spirit of not giving up.

The Elric Brothers and the Amestrian Military face parallel hardships, with Kafka and the Defense Force also striving to reclaim their countries from monstrous enemies. Both series have secret weapons in the form of powerful warriors, adding depth to the narrative. Edward and Alphonse Elric, as well as Kafka, often find themselves the brunt of jokes, adding a touch of levity amidst the increasing turmoil. With 64 episodes in total, this anime series will keep you entertained throughout. The Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood can be watched on Crunchyroll and Netflix.

 

10. Pacific Rim: The Black

Pacific Rim: The Black showcases its strength as the strongest entry within the Pacific Rim franchise through its seamless integration of visually stunning fight sequences with well-rounded human characters and captivating storylines. The series centres around two siblings, Taylor and Hayley Travis, who embark on a mission to find their parents and uncover the secrets of a devastating Kaiju invasion in post-apocalyptic Australia.

Both siblings share the similarity of experiencing a similar ambition to Kafka and Mina in Kaiju No 8, where they aspire to join an organization that fights against monsters. This shared dream adds depth and intrigue to their individual stories. The narrative incorporates elements of humour, drama, and thrilling action sequences, captivating viewers and leaving them wanting more. If you enjoy immersive kaiju fight scenes, Pacific Rim: The Black is definitely worth a watch. The series is available to watch on Netflix.

So, whether you’re a die-hard kaiju fan or new to the genre, these anime series are sure to satisfy your monster cravings. Which of these titles will you be looking forward to watching? Let us know by commenting on our social platforms on TwitterFacebookInstagram, and TikTok. Happy watching!
