RECAP: Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 96 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 97

As both civilians and Defense Force members celebrate Captain Mina Ashiro’s decisive victory over Kaiju No. 14, the enigmatic Kaiju No. 9 makes a reappearance.

The monster chooses to send a transmission to the Defense Force, and as he speaks, internal teleportation energy is detected inside the dead Kaiju No. 14. The chapter ends with Kaiju No. 9 emerging from Kaiju No. 14’s corpse to fight Mina Ashiro.

Chapter 97 will most probably feature an epic battle between Mina Ashiro and Kaiju No. 9. The former may even be assisted by Kafka as Kaiju No. 8, which will mark the first time they work together on the field.
