Square Enix opened an official website for a television anime adaptation of Wakame Konbu's Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai! (The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!) manga on Friday. The anime series will premiere in Summer 2021. Konbu drew an illustration to commemorate the announcement (pictured above).

Synopsis
Once respected as the Demon Realm's second greatest authority, the Demon King's aide, Jahy, ruled her subjects with fear. But when a magical girl attacks and destroys a mystic gem containing massive power, the Demon Realm is destroyed.

Although she survives, Jahy has lost almost all of her powers and finds herself stranded in the human world with a childlike appearance. In order to gather more mystic gems so that she can permanently restore both her original form and the Demon Realm, Jahy will have to adjust to her new life and deal with everyday problems that she has never experienced before. From working to pay for living expenses to arguing with her landlord whenever her rent is late, the great Jahy will not be discouraged! [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Monthly Gangan Joker began serializing the supernatural sitcom manga in August 2017. Square Enix published the sixth volume last April. The publisher licensed the manga in English under its Manga & Books imprint in November 2019 and plans to release the first volume on July 13.

Very happy about this. The manga's just adorable. I wonder if/how it'll manage to capture all those great Jahy expressions!
Don't mind me,

Hm, interesting. Think I heard about this manga awhile back. Kinda like a reverse isekai judging from the synopsis.

Never got around to reading this series, but I have seen a lot of screencaps from it on Reddit and it looks and sounds like something that'll be right up my alley.

I don't really know why, but I had lost hopes that this manga would get an adaptation, despite thinking it would be a good and fluffy work to see animated. I'm glad my little faith proved me wrong.

I want Doga Kobo to animate them. Best slice of life studio for these kind of anime, just look at Maoujou de Oyasumi.

Once again, another special girl oriented manga gets animated, I'm still believing, a Komi-san anime is coming.

My literal first thought exactly, lol.
There was once a signature here.

Apparently advicing people to not act in a way that would get them insulted is an insult itself.
We truly live in a society.

That said, don't @ or quote me. I won't be notified of your heroic try.
You can celebrate my greatness by commenting on my profile, though. Love ya all.

Oh I will definitely check it out. I’ve seen the main character every now and then somewhere, she seems to be quite popular. I honestly didn’t even know there was a manga

I find Jahy-sama even more wholesome than Machikado Mazoku, it's definitely something to look forward to
