NouCome illustrator Yukiwo's comedy manga inspires summer 2018 anime

A television anime adaptation of Yukiwo's Jashin-chan Dropkick (Dropkick on My Devil!) manga has been green-lit for next summer. The anime's staff opened a website, which reveals the anime's visual, on Thursday.

The comedy manga centers on Yurine Hanazono, a college student who summons Jashin-chan, a demon from the underworld. Now they must live together in a run-down apartment in Tokyo's Jinbōchō district. If Yurine dies, Jashin-chan gets to go back to the underworld, so she constantly plots to kill Yurine.

Yukiwo launched the manga in Flex Comix's web magazine Comic Meteor in April 2012. Holp Shuppan published the manga's seventh compiled book volume on June 9, and will ship the eighth volume on Saturday.

Yukiwo illustrated Takeru Kasukabe's NouCome (My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy) light novel series. The novel series inspired a television anime in 2013. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired and Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video.

Yukiwo also drew the manga of Lump of Sugar's Tayutama - Kiss on My Deity visual novel in 2009, which also inspired a television anime that same year. Yukiwo launched a new manga titled God Chance in Kadokawa's Comic Cune magazine on August 26.
