Dropkick on my Devil Anime's Staff: Show Will Get 2nd Season if BD Box Sets Sell 2,000 Copies
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official Twitter account for the television anime of Yukiwo's Jashin-chan Dropkick (Dropkick on My Devil!) manga stated on Saturday that if the show's Blu-ray Disc box sets sell a combined 2,000 copies before the January 20 "Sugoi Sabato" event for the show, executive producer Kouichirou Natsume will decide to greenlight a second season of the show. The Twitter account stated the box sets currently have 813 pre-orders. The first box set will ship on October 29, and the second box set will ship on November 26.
The staff had noted in September that there might be a sequel if enough Blu-ray Disc box sets sell.
Hikaru Sato (Chronicles of the Going Home Club) directed the series at Nomad (Chronicles of the Going Home Club, School-Live!). Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, Is the order a rabbit?) oversaw the series scripts, and also wrote the scripts alongside Momoko Murakami (Muromi-san, Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara). Makoto Koga (Aria the Animation, Blessing of the Campanella) served as both character designer and chief animation director, and Yuki Kurihara and Yuzuru Jinma composed the music. Kouichirou Natsume (Naruto Shippuden the Movie: Bonds, anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day film) was the executive producer.
The original comedy manga by Yukiwo 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.
