This event was made possible because Tachikawa is one of the bases of the Japanese Defense Force, which Kafka aspires to join.
We will be holding a POP UP SHOP, holding a stamp rally, and exhibiting life-size figures of Kaiju No. 8 and character life-size panels in Tachikawa City to welcome fans of the anime “Kaiju No. 8” who have come to Tachikawa.

Kafka Hibino had aspired to join the Japan Defense Force to subjugate monsters, but before he knew it, he gave up on that dream and started working at a cleaning company specializing in monsters.
“Let’s annihilate all the monsters together.”
Kafka begins to pursue his dreams once again after seeing the success of his childhood friend Mina Aheki, the commander of the 3rd unit, and meeting his junior colleague Reno Ichikawa, who is aiming to join the Defense Force.
However, just then, a mysterious small monster transforms him into a monster with great power!
