Kaiju No. 8 Episode 5 recap


Kaiju No. 8 Episode 5 is titled Joining Up! The episode begins with Kafka expressing gratitude to Leno for his support during the exams. However, Reno's perception of Kafka's reliability is challenged when Kafka displays nervousness about receiving his test results. Kafka's anxiety peaks as he imagines himself fighting alongside Mina in the Defense Force. Shortly after, they receive their results and begin opening the envelope.

The scene then shifts to Mina officially appointing Kikoru as a Defense Force member, leaving Kikoru conflicted about Kafka's absence and Mina's praise. As Mina congratulates the members who passed, Kafka arrives at the ceremony, sheepishly apologizing for being late. In a flashback, Mina recalls the committee's initial reluctance to accept Kafka, though Soshiro decides to pass him due to Kafka's humorous personality.

Present-day, Mina reveals Kafka's acceptance as a cadet, which surprises Iharu. A brief, charged moment passes between Kafka and Mina as Kafka loudly addresses Mina informally, inadvertently breaking protocol. Mina orders him to do 100 push-ups, but her hidden smile suggests she's secretly pleased. Soshiro's ulterior motives regarding Kafka's acceptance are hinted at in Kaiju No. 8 Episode 5, with suspicions about Kafka's connection to Kaiju No. 8 lingering.
