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).

Synopsis
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.

Yukiwo began publishing the supernatural comedy manga on Flex Comix's online magazine Comic Meteor in April 2012. The 15th volume shipped on June 12.

The first season aired in 11 episodes in Summer 2018, with the 12th episode debuting on October 1 that year. The second season premiered exclusively on Amazon's Prime Video platform on April 6. Crunchyroll also streamed the anime subsequently.

Great news. I missed out on ordering a Jashin dakimakura and I don't have the gonads to buy one used. Hopefully we get more produced with a 3rd season.

Japan really loves their cute girls... I'm never going to get this type of stuff, and I hope that I never will.


But in Jashin-Chan we get to see a cute topless serpent girl get constantly beat to a bloody pulp. How can you not want a dozen seasons of that?
I don't find the show funny (repetitive and basic imo) and I don't like the cute generic art style it has. I don't get how someone can enjoy it, but well, I don't care much.

Very nice seeing fans carrying series and being passionate enough to fund more of it.

Respect.

Great to see this getting a new season.

Oct 2, 12:54 AM by MegamiRem

what is the runtime length of each episode of this? no way 200K USD is enough to fund the usual 20 minute TV anime and 1 cour of it

I was sure MAL was waiting for this...

Anyway, that aside, it's amazing how within a day and a half the goal was met even though 3 months was set for it! That's Nippon for you.

I enjoyed both the seasons immensely so I'm obviously looking forward to this as well.

If only more popular anime would go the crowdfunding route, we could have many more seasons of awesome shows, like No Game No Life 2.

The first season never clicked with me, for some reason. The second season though, I genuinely enjoyed. Hope the third season is similar to the second season.

fantastic news, congrats to the creators and the fans, I really enjoy all Jashin-chan anime and manga, can't wait till 2022

The fact that this niche anime is able to keep getting new seasons through sheer fan engagement like this and the "sell x BDs and you'll get season 2" genuinely impresses me. And I'm happy about this as seasons 1 and 2 have been great fun to say the least.

Oct 1, 3:37 PM by Atavistic

I am so looking forward to this, I loved season 1 and 2

Hell yeah! This series is a treat to watch. Glad to see there are others who want to see more of it like I do.
