A Niconico Live streaming program for the television anime adaptation of Yukiwo's Jashin-chan Dropkick (Dropkick on My Devil!) manga revealed the first promotional video and the main cast for the series on Thursday.
The anime will premiere this summer on BS Fuji and other channels. The video reveals that the anime will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video, but it does not specify regions for the streaming. The livestream confirmed that episodes will be 30 minutes long.
The cast includes: (Note: Some character name spellings are not confirmed.)
- Aina Suzuki as Jashin-chan
- Nichika Omori as Yurine Hanazono
- Miyu Kubota as Medusa
- Yurie Kozakai as Pekora
- Chiaki Omigawa as Minos
- Rico Sasaki as Poporon
- Riho Iida as Persephone the Second
- Natsuko Hara as Mei Tachibana
- Kazusa Aranami as Yusa
- Miko Terada as Kōji
The main cast members will appear at a stage event for the anime at AnimeJapan in Tokyo on March 24. BS Fuji's booth at the event will give away tin badges featuring the anime's characters.
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 released the manga's ninth compiled book volume on December 9.
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.
