Goodnight Punpun author's sci-fi manga about high school students sees Western release

Viz Media announced at Comic-Con International on Thursday that it will publish Inio Asano's Dead Dead Demon's Dededededestruction manga in English.

The series revolves around the strange everyday life of the very ordinary high school girl Kadode Koyama, her friend Ouran Nakagawa, and others in a world where a giant mothership has appeared over Tokyo.

Asano launched the series in Big Comic Spirits in April 2014. Shogakukan shipped the sixth compiled volume on May 30. The tentative title before launch was Honobono no Fūfu (Tender-hearted Couple). Asano has put the manga on hiatus several times since July 2014. The series is ongoing, though it is currently on hiatus.

Viz Media has published Asano's previous series Solanin and What a wonderful world!, and is publishing the Goodnight Punpun manga. Fantagraphics Books published Asano's horror manga Nijigahara Holograph in 2014, and Vertical Comics published Asano's A Girl on the Shore manga last year.
