With the release of its eighth volume in Japan, Naoya Matsumoto's science fiction / action manga Kaiju No 8. is celebrating a milestone of 5 million copies in circulation (including both print and digital) with a cool new preview video that uses projection mapping technology to plunge Kafka Hibino and his monster-slaying squad into battle.



Kaiju No. 8 is serialized in Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ digital manga magazine, and an English language version of the series is also available from Viz Manga, who describe the story as follows:


Kafka hopes to one day keep his pact with his childhood friend Mina to join the Japan Defense Force and fight by her side. But while she’s out neutralizing kaiju as Third Division captain, Kafka is stuck cleaning up the aftermath of her battles. When a sudden rule change makes Kafka eligible for the Defense Force, he decides to try out for the squad once more. There’s just one problem—he’s made the Defense Force’s neutralization list under the code name Kaiju No. 8.
