I've read the manga and I still don't know how to feel about it. I love monster girls, some of the humor is funny, but there was a good amount of the humor that I remember just being mean spirited. It's interesting that it's getting an anime and I'll at least check it out.

Premise sounds cool and simple, maybe I might try this out. Hopefully it will be at least somewhat decent.

Oh hell yeah, I love me some slapstick. Monster Musume also had really good slapstick, maybe monster girls are the key?

Sounds like fun. Smile I like slapstick, so I’m hoping that I will enjoy it when it comes out.

Finally, more girl-girl duo anime. Looking forward to this.

It is named "Dropkick on My Devil", and yet the manoeuvre depicted is clearly a camel clutch. Do they underestimate the size of the intersection between wrestling fans and otaku?

I think they're saving the dropkick as a finishing move.

By the way, I actually chuckled when I read the synopsis. It's been a while since a mere synopsis made me react that way.

The premise that the college student is scarier than the demon is a tad predictable but as a comedy it sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

Could be worse they could've had someone getting predictably slammed with a german suplex.

And this looks like one of them 5 minute anime's (not that I mind those).

Even though slapstick is often lighthearted, the violence is perhaps an alternate take on what technically is/could be deemed domestic violence. Thus, I suppose ultimately physically violent humor is mean-spirited.
