Kaiju No 8 Chapter 58 Recap
The chapter starts with Hoshina stating that the country will have no chance of survival if No.9 continues to create monsters that have a resistance that is of high level. Jugo Ogata, the commander of Division Four asks about the chance of No.10 actually being honest. He counters by saying that although that might be true, what No. 10 claims is true if they look at the statistics.
Hoshina also tells them that recent studies show a phenomenon produced by earth faults that let out large amounts of energy and distortion which affects any nearby animals or plants and that No.9 could be using this to create the monsters.
Although many areas show more or less the same energy readings only one location matches their study and is most likely to be the place where monsters are being created. This location is found in the convergent points between the ocean plates of the Philippines and Eurasian.
This area is large and completely inaccessible to humans just because of its humongous size. No.10 has also given them information regarding No.9’s ability to absorb human memories which means that due to him taking over Shinomiya Chief’s body he might have access to classified information about the Defence Force.
Hoshina tells them that to ensure that they come out victorious they must make sure the new recruits are fully prepared this is because No.9 already had information on the older members.
