Manga 'Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction' Receives Anime Adaptation

Production company GAGA opened an official website for an anime adaptation of Inio Asano's Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction manga on Wednesday, revealing a special promo. Asano also drew an illustration to commemorate the announcement (pictured).

Production +h., the animation studio behind Mitsuo Iso's Chikyuugai Shounen Shoujo (The Orbital Children) anime, is producing the anime project.

Asano launched the sci-fi slice of life manga in April 2014 in Big Comic Spirits after ending Oyasumi Punpun the year before. The 13th issue of the magazine published the 100th and final chapter on February 28. Shogakukan shipped the 11th volume on July 30 last year, with the 12th volume scheduled to release on March 30. VIZ Media licensed the manga in English in 2017 and released the tenth volume last September.

Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction placed among the top 20 manga in the male readers category in the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2016 rankings, won the 66th Shogakukan Manga Awards in the General category, and the Excellence Award at the 25th Japan Media Arts Festival in the Manga division.

When you look up at the sky, what do you see? A blue sky? Freedom? A hopeful future? The people of Tokyo see none of these. Instead, an ominous alien mothership looms overhead, engulfing the city skyscape.

Three years ago, they came. The arrival of the "Invaders" sparked the greatest war humanity had ever faced—one that threatened to end the world. The Japanese government scrambled to fight the Invaders. Weapons were mass-produced, sparking controversy and pacifist movements.

That day, everything changed. And yet, nothing has changed. Kadode Koyama and Ouran Nakagawa live their final days like they always have: going to school, playing with friends, and doing what any carefree high school girl would do.

As they grow up they come to learn what it truly means to be an adult, in a world where adults seem to be demons who only deceive and destroy. They come to learn the real threat to humanity is not the Invaders, but humanity itself. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

I can not wait for this. I absolutely love Inio Asano's work and Dead Dead Demons is an all time favorite of mine.

Yo, is there any official release date or sum?

I'm so hyped for this, and its his first anime too! First ever Asano anime, time to celebrate!

Its a shame the manga did kind of drop the ball at the end with the last couple of chapters, but the characters are a 10/10 that I almost don't mind it. That being said, an anime original ending that's an improvement to the manga's one is a welcome change.

I know nothing about this studio, so I'm curious how they're gonna adapt this. my only hopes is their background art would be at least as stellar as the manga's. and I cant wait to see Ontan brought to life. that being said, I don't think Punpun should get any adaptation, ever.

he is so so deserving of an anime adaptation i hope this announcement brings his work to light. although a lot of people under this comment section view his titles as bad (although i think there is a fine line between this and inio’s work being nonconventional), i think his work is very subjective in the fact there are many philosophical aspects one may take out of them. tdlr yes i am dick riding this author heavy i am so excited

Asano Inio's works finally getting anime adaptation, that's great.

I stopped at chp 16 I think, I need to finish it now!

They come to learn the real threat to humanity is not the Invaders, but humanity itself.

There's an art to subtlety, but I don't see it on display here. Being so overt about it just kills my interest outright.

I don't really like Asano Inio manga but I'll give this a try when it starts airing.

And before PunPun. Alright who am I kidding? There's no way in hell PunPun gets animated and you know what? I'm cool with it.

Hell yeaaahhhh!!!!

Asano getting an anime is unexpected, but I am sceptical. Better than a Punpun adaptation though, that can only fail.

Oh man, I'm in the middle of reading Dead Dead Demon's right now! :D Can't wait to see how it'll turn out as an anime, especially from a new studio with a unique style! I think a lot of the people who worked on Dennou Coil are part of h+, and I can imagine that turning out really well.

how come the worst work of inio gets and anime whereas stuff like punpun and solanin remain forever manga?
I'd argue this is his second best work only behind pun pun which is unadaptable to an anime format

I knew this was gonna get an anime lol looking forward to it

Mar 23, 2022 5:28 AM by Tokoya

Hmmm, the name sounds interesting at least xD Other than that I don't know anything. Maybe I'll try it out since lots of ppl are praising it.

The truth about Asano I only read punpun I was interested in this work and solanin now that dead dead will have anime I will start solanin. If I'm not mistaken, it's Asano's first work with anime proper.

Well, this is actually so surprising. Never in my lifetime would I have thought to see DeDeDeDe’s anime adaptation. For a full adaptation it might need 3 cours at least to not feel rushed, which I doubt it will happen, so let’s hope for the best.
