Mina succeeds in obtaining a high position, but Kafka fails the exams and is assigned to clean up monster corpses after the battle. One day, a small kaiju flies into his body, thanks to which Kafka gains the ability to transform into a monster that the Defense Forces call Kaiju No. 8.

Eventually, Kafka decides he wants to fight alongside Mina and joins the Defense Forces, keeping his new abilities a secret.
