Dead Dead Demon’s Dededede Destruction Plot
The plot of the anime will follow the manga closely. The story begins three years after a large spaceship appears over Tokyo. The aliens, dubbed “Invaders”, seem to be harmless and do not communicate with humans.
However, the Japanese government launched a one-sided war against them, using advanced weapons and drones. The war sparks controversy and pacifism among the public, as well as conspiracy theories and cults.
Meanwhile, Kadode and Ouran are two high school girls who live their normal lives despite the alien presence. They go to school, hang out with friends, play video games, and read manga.
They also have a secret hobby: using a device called “Dedede”, they can remotely control drones and shoot at the Invaders for fun. They do not care much about the war or the future, as they believe that the world will end soon anyway.
However, as they grow older, they start to face various challenges and changes in their lives. They meet new people, fall in love, lose friends, and discover secrets. They also witness the horrors of war and the cruelty of humanity. They begin to question their own beliefs and actions, as well as the meaning of life.
