Grotesque Godzilla-like monsters called “kaijuu” have been appearing in Japan for many years. To combat these beasts, an elite military unit known as the Defense Corps risks their lives daily to protect civilians. Once a creature dies, “sweepers,” who work under the Kaijuu Professional Cleaning Corporation, stay behind to dispose of its remains. Kafka Hibino, a 32-year-old man, is not satisfied with his work as a sweeper. From a young age, he has aspired to join the Defense Corps and kill kaijuus for a living.
However, after a few failed attempts, he abandoned his dreams and resigned himself to the mediocrity that brought him a decent salary. However, when an ambitious 18-year-old recruit named Leno Ichikawa joins his cleaning crew, Kafka is once again reminded of his desire to join the army. After a chain of unfortunate events and an interaction with the young street sweeper, Kafka encounters a parasite-type kaijuu that burrows through his mouth, turning him into a humanoid monster. With his newfound powers, Kafka aims to give his lifelong dream one last try.
