Is Kaiju No. 8 on break this break?

Yes, the Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 23 is on break this week and no new chapter will be published this week as confirmed by the series editor on Twitter.

What will happen in the chapter 23 of Kaiju No. 8/Monster #8?

In this week’s Kaiju No. 8 chapter, all the squad members came together to celebrate the completion of their first official mission and the discharge of Iharu and Reno.

During the party, it was revealed that Haruichi, who is the son of Izumo Tech. Izumo Tech which holds a monopoly in anti-kaiju weaponry and armor production. Also, Kafka has been promoted to the rank of an officer due to his immense knowledge of Kaiju anatomy.

But there is a general rule in anime that whenever a character like Hoshina opens his eyes, it basically means two things- first that he is about to get serious, and second that he is planning something. And in this case, it seems Hoshina gave Kafka a promotion so he can keep an eye on him cause he is suspicious of him being the monster Kaijus No. 8.

Also Mina’s words “Humanoid or not, all Kaiju must be eliminated” also raises many questions like why she hates Kaiju kind so much. It most likely is linked with the incident that happened during her childhood when she escaped with Kafka. Also, it will be interesting to see how she will react once she will find out that Kafka has turned into a Kaiju.

Now at last there is a piece of good news that I want to share with all Kaiju No. 8 around the world. The series has reached over 4.3 million copies in circulation with only one volume released so far. Moreover, it has become the first series to reach 40 million views on the ShonenJump+ app. Also, a promotional video has been released to commemorate the release of its first volume.
