Kafka hopes to one day keep a pact with her childhood friend Mina to join the Japan Self-Defense Forces and fight alongside her. But while she nullifies the kaiju as the Third Team captain, Kafka is stuck cleaning up the aftermath of her battles. When a sudden rule change made Kafka eligible for the Self-Defense Forces, he decided to try his hand at the team again. There’s only one problem – he’s on the Self-Defense Force’s disable list under the codename Kaiju #8.
