Dead Dead Demon’s Dededede Destruction by Goodnight Punpun author Inio Asano revealed in March 2022 that it had been officially picked up for an anime adaptation. The studio handling the adaptation is Production +h, whose credits include an ONA series titled The Orbital Children. Asano marked the occasion with a new drawing, as well as an announcement video showing snippets of production meetings.

The film has Tomoyuki Kurokawa directing them from the screenplay by Reiko Yoshida. Noutake Ito is handling the character designs and serving as the chief animation director.

Plot concept: 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. Koyama Kadode and Nakagawa Ouran 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.
