The manga Dead Dead Demon’s Dededede Destruction is getting a two-part anime movie, and then the two-part anime movie is also getting its own anime series. It will consist of 18 episodes, and it will include new footage, so it’s not just the movies being spliced up into shorter segments. Crunchyroll will start streaming the series this Thursday. The streaming service also offered up this subtitled trailer with the news.

The show’s theme song is “Zett-Zett-Zett-Zett- Zettai Seiiki” (translated by Abababab Absolute Sanctuary) which is performed by ano and features Lilas Ikuta. It’s the same theme song from the first movie.

VIZ Media has published all twelve volumes of the original manga by Inio Asano. It gave this description for the first volume:

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.
