Dropkick on My Devil! Gets Special Spinoff Episode For Winter 2023

Jashin-chan Dropkick or Dropkick on My Devil! is known for its violent slapstick comedy that involves Jashin-chan trying to kill her summoner. This turns out to be a running gag as she always fails and gets dismembered in return.

The anime is a crowdfunded project and has run for three seasons and the franchise is planning for OVAs and a fourth season.

On Friday, the official website for Dropkick on My Devil! announced with a teaser that a spinoff episode is in production. The episode is titled Jashin-chan Dropkick: Seikimatsu-hen (Dropkick on My Devil -End of the Century-) and will air on BS NTV in the winter of 2023.

In the video, a few of the past events are shown. It then shows the new visual released for the special episode.

The anime is a collaborative project with the town of Takamori in the Kumamoto Prefecture. Jashin-chan is guided by the stars and heads to Takamori for a meeting. Her objective is to defeat Yurine, who in the episode, is an evil ruler Jinbocho which is destroyed by a meteor strike.

This episode will be animated by studio Makaria.

Although there has not been any further news about the fourth season, it is likely to be in production. The crowdfunding for that season reached its initial 30-million-yen goal within 35 minutes of its launch.

It closed at 115 million yen, which is said to be the highest amount raised for animation production in the history of Japan.

Jashin-chan may not be for everyone, but I am glad that we can get to watch another season in the future. The characters were quite interesting and had their unique traits. Despite getting overboard at times, the show has maintained its humor and does not feel bothersome.
