Kaiju No.8 Chapter 47 Recap
Here’s a brief recap on what happened in Kaiju No.8 Chapter 47.
Kafka and his kaiju #8 finally showed how terrifying his power is. Everyone is left stunned seeing the impact of his punch on the giant ant. Kaiju #9 is distressed over the situation and frantically calls back beta to fuse. Unfortunately, he is also being held up by Commander Narumi and his squad.
Narumi decides to take matters into his own hand instead of leaving it all on the newbie, Kaiju #8. He unleashes his full force, which forces the surrounding area to be designated as no access zones.
Using his blade, he cuts the arm off the ant body of Kaiju#9. We learn that the blade burns when it cuts and the kaiju’s wounds take longer to regenerate. This makes it problematic for the kaiju and he decides to attack him from a distance. However, Narumi’s weapon is designed to be able to combat both in close quarters and from a distance. His weapon turns into a gun and he blasts away at the Kaiju.
Kaiju#9 notices the exceptional prowess of Narumi who is using his blade and gun to attack in waves while dodging the Kaiju’s attacks. Realizing that Narumi has no weak spots in ranged combat, Kaiju #9 decides to retaliate.
Kaiju#9 had laid out his body under the streets like roots, trapping Narumi from all sides and causing them to explode. We learn that #9 is a virus-like kaiju that is capable of evolving by mingling with humans. However, Narumi emerges unscathed by the explosion. He remarks that his suit is now warmed up and unveils his other personal weapon, the RT-0001.
The RT-0001 is Japan’s oldest numbers weapon and was made from the retina of Kaiju #1. With its help, Narumi is able to see the vital points of Kaiju #9. He fires a shot that blasts a hole through Kaiju’s body.
Kaiju No.8 Chapter 48 Spoilers
The upcoming chapter of Kaiju No.8 will continue with the fight between Narumi and Kaiju #9. Narumi has unveiled his other personal weapon, the RT-0001. Combined with his exceptional combat abilities, he may just be able to take out the other half of Kaiju#9. But we also know that Kaiju#9 is a virus-like kaiju. He is capable of analyzing his surroundings and evolving. It is highly possible that this fact might come back later to haunt Narumi.
Our focus may also shift to the fight between Kaiju#8 and the other half of Kaiju#9. Earlier we saw the terrifying power of #8 as he took down #9 with a single punch. Kaiju#9 and his clone are in a dire situation and they quickly need to fuse for any chances of survival.
This raises the question, whether Kaiju#9 will be able to fuse before his two halves are defeated by our heroes? Also, the upcoming chapter may reveal our protagonist Kafka losing his will to his kaiju and going on a rampage again.
