Unfortunately, there is no spoiler information yet for the fifth episode of Kaiju No. 8, and fans can expect this trend to continue throughout the first season. While fans can check out the manga for more information or spoilers, there’s a good chance that the anime won’t strictly follow the manga.

Kaiju #8 episode 4 started with the main character, Kafka Hibino, forcing himself to get up and continue with the exam. Unable to walk due to his broken leg, Reno Ichikawa had to carry him on his back. Meanwhile, Kikoru leapt across the battlefield with enviable speed, killing every Yoju along the way.

Just as she killed the last Honju and finished the exam, a humanoid Kaiju appeared behind the Honju and shot Kikoru in the heart. The humanoid Kaiju then began to revive the Honju and all the other Yoju killed by Kikoru. Then Kikoru was shot several more times when she tried to fight it and disappeared from the scene.

The injury caused a brief flashback, introducing Kikoru’s childhood and memories of her father. After the flashback ended, Kikoru started to fight the Honju, but she kept getting injured instead. Just as her death was imminent, Kafka appeared and transformed, killing the Honju and begging Kikoru to keep his transformation a secret.

It was later revealed that everyone survived thanks to Kikoru and Kafka’s efforts. Before the episode ended, the humanoid Kaiju was revealed as someone who could turn into a human and seven people working from Kafka and Ichikawa’s old cleanup crew.

Now that the exam is over and the first main antagonist has been revealed, Kaiju #8 episode 5 hints at it being an eventful episode that will likely bring Kafka, Ichikawa, and Kikoru to the Kaiju Defense Force. This also means that the episode will mainly focus on early training and onboarding, so fans can continue to hope for more action in the later episodes.

However, fans can expect Episode 5 to reveal more information about the humanoid Kaiju that debuted in Episode 4 and its powers. While it’s unlikely to reveal his true intentions and motives so soon, fans will at least learn more about his powers and what threat it poses to the main characters.
