The official Twitter account for the television anime adaptation of Yukiwo's Jashin-chan Dropkick (Dropkick on My Devil!) manga revealed a new video for the anime, as well as the anime's July premiere.

The anime's site also revealed a new visual.
The manga will also get a free game within the smartphone and PC RPG Atsumaru app titled "Jashin-chan Dropkick: Wakiaiai Satsubatsu Battle!" (Dropkick on My Devil! Peaceful Bloodthirsty Battle!). In the game, players control Yurine as they attempt to hit an attacking Jashin-chan. It will also have a collection of mini-games.
The anime will air on BS Fuji and other channels. The show will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video, but the staff hasn't specified in which regions the anime will stream. Episodes will be 30 minutes long.

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 last December.
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 last August.
