Demeking is a Japanese live-action movie based on a 1991 manga by Takashi Imashiro and directed by Kotaro Terauchi. It was released by Jolly Roger on March 7, 2009.
Set in the early 1970s, the film stars Takeshi Nadagi as Koichi Hachiya, a strange, yet oddly sincere man who dedicates his life to preparing for a battle between himself and a giant monster from outer space called Demeking in the year 2019, which he calls his “prophecy”.
Meanwhile, a group of young boys—led by an older boy named Kameoka (Kohei Kiyasu)—form an exploration club and try to unravel the truth behind Hachiya, Demeking, and the predicted destruction of Tokyo.
