Viz announces DEAD DEAD DEMON’S DEDEDEDE DESTRUCTION manga coming to the US
DEAD DEAD DEMON’S DEDEDEDE DESTRUCTION is quite a mouth-full, but I promise you are going to be saying it like a pro after you read this awesome new manga from Inio Asano. Asano is widely acclaimed for a variety of works that evoke stories of adolescent rebellion and teenage angst. DEAD DEAD DEMON’S DEDEDEDE DESTRUCTION is no exception its a story of a world thats on the brink of its end. A mysterious force has invaded japan and the JSDF has had no luck fighting it off over three years of brutal attacks. Meanwhile Kadode Koyamaand her friends in High School avidly track the invasion via social media and while they wait for the end of the world.
Sure sounds like an interesting concept. I think I am most interested in the idea of how Asano will contrast the hi pressure of Japanese highschool with the looming destruction of the planet. Im not convinced that we wont be seeing the title character and her friends plying in to the war with the aliens later on.
DEAD DEAD DEMON’S DEDEDEDE DESTRUCTION is rated ‘M’ for Mature, and will be published in print and digital editions under the VIZ Signature imprint. Volume 1 will cost $14.99 U.S. The series will launch digitally via viz.com and the VIZ Manga App, as well as from the Nook, Kobo, Kindle, iBooks, comiXology, and Google Play stores. Future volumes of the series will be published in English by VIZ Media on a quarterly basis.
Pancha Diaz, Editor said of the new series:
“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. 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.”
