The official Twitter account of the Jashin-chan Dropkick (Dropkick on my Devil!) anime series announced on Thursday that a third season has been green-lit following a successful crowdfunding campaign. The third season is scheduled to air in 2022, following the original manga's 10th anniversary.
The campaign began at 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday and exceeded its goal of 20 million yen (approximately US$190,000) within 33 hour. As of press time, the campaign sits at over 22 million yen (approximately US$208,000).
The demon Jashin-chan has been summoned to Earth by Yurine Hanazono, a girl with a knack for the occult. Unfortunately, Yurine does not actually know how to send Jashin-chan back to Hell. Now stuck on Earth, she must live at Yurine's apartment as her familiar.
The only way for Jashin-chan to return would be to kill her summoner, but this is easier said than done for the incompetent demon. Since Jashin-chan is immortal and can regenerate her body, Yurine does not hold back in attacking her with a range of weapons, punishing her in gruesome manners for her evil schemes. Jashin-chan is also often visited by her demon friends: the kindhearted Gorgon Medusa and the energetic minotaur Minosu, who seem much more well-behaved in contrast, and disapprove of her plans to kill Yurine.
