Dead Dead Demon’s Dededededestruction began serialization in Shogakukan’s Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine in April 2014, and the 12th and final volume will be out on March 30th. Viz Media is releasing the series in English and describes the story as:
The Japan Self-Defense Forces are still looking for a way to combat the alien threat, but so far conventional weapons have had no effect. Maybe it’s time to try something unconventional.
Meanwhile, Kadode Koyama 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 looms overhead, you learn to take things one step at a time.
