The latest chapter of Kaiju No. 8 – a shōnen manga series- gets a fresh release date. Earlier scheduled for 25 March, the chapter now gets a week-long delay. The reasons for the delay are not yet clear, but certain rumors have been circulating.
Kaiju No. 8 Chapter 30 Release Date
Chapter 29 though scheduled for March 11, came out on 18th March after being delayed for a week. Similarly, Chapter 30 will now be out on 1st April instead of 25 March. The chapter will be out at 12:00 am JST. The English translations for the manga will be available on the same date with a difference in time according to the time zones. It will be out at 9:00 am according to the Pacific time. Going by British time, chapter 30 will be available at 5:00 pm.
Why has the chapter been delayed?
The manga, which is published weekly, has been delayed more than once this year. With chapters 26 and 29 already released with week-long delays, the latest delay has left fans speculating. If one considers the rumors, then author Naoya Matsumoto is busy with Volume 3. Though Shueisha has mentioned no official reason, fans think this to be the cause for the delay since volume 3’s release date is fast approaching.
