In Dead Dead Demon’s Dededede Destruction, the Japan Self Defense Forces are still looking for a way to combat the looming alien threat three years after the invasion, but so far conventional weapons have no effect on the mother ship. Maybe it’s time to try something unconventional. Meanwhile, Kadode Koyama is in high school. She and her best friend avidly track the aliens’ movements on social media and less enthusiastically study for college entrance exams. When the end of the world is overhead, you learn to take it one step at a time.
“Inio Asano’s works are internationally acclaimed for the way in which they juxtapose the surreal and the everyday with compelling tales of teenage angst,” says Pancha Diaz, Editor. “Dead Dead Demon’s Dededede Destruction continues this tradition. Find out what happens when aliens invade and you still have to navigate the daily dramas of high school.”
Inio Asano was born in Ibaraki, Japan, in 1980. In 2001, his short story “Uchu kara Konnichiwa” (Hello from Outer Space) won the first Sunday GX Rookie Prize. Later, GX published his series Subarashii Sekai, available in English from VIZ Media as What a Wonderful World! His other works include Hikari no Machi (City of Light), Nijigahara Holograph and Umibe no Onna no Ko (A Girl on the Shore), as well as Solanin and Goodnight Punpun, also available from VIZ Media.
