The screenplay for Dead Dead Demons DEDEDEDE Destruction was composed by writer Reiko Yoshida who is known for her writing skills on such projects as; Bakuman, Blue Period, Dragon Ball Z and many more… with writing talent like that we have high hopes for Dead Dead Demons DEDEDEDE Destruction. Here’s the official synopsis:

“The story follows two high school girls who struggle with the mundanity of life after an alien spaceship descends on Japan. Three years previous the gigantic spacecraft named the “Mothership” attacked Tokyo, Japan without warning. Now in the present the Mothership just became a part of normal everyday life.”

“Despite the events that has taken place high schoolers Koyama Kadode and Nakagawa Ouran strangely behave like nothing has happened, both the girls continue to live their life’s each day like nothing changed.”

This story follows the storyline of these two high school girls and focuses more on their human nature and how they proceed in life after the events three years prior with the alien evasion. By focusing more on the lives of girls instead of the alien invasion itself, it appears this anime will have a lot of growth from our characters and revolve around their development in their new surroundings. This gives the animation a more of a slice-of-life feel to it.
