The official website for the Seizei Gambare Mahō Shōjo Kurumi (Do Your Best Magical Girl Kurumi) short anime announced on Saturday that a third season will premiere on the BS11 television channel on October 7. The season will run every first and third Wednesday of the month at 11:54 p.m. It will also run on YouTube and other streaming services on schedules to be announced later.
The production will run a crowdfunding project that ties into the third season from July 25 to September 25. The crowdfunding will offer fans a chance to give their support for such bonuses as original episodes on the eventual Blu-ray Disc release.
The first season centers around Kurumi Azuchimomoyama, a normal 14-year-old girl who attends Egaogaoka Middle School. One day, an angel named "Devilun" that looks like a Tasmanian devil appears before her. Devilun grants Kurumi the power to be the beautiful magical girl dinosaur angel warrior "Prima Pink," and tells her to fight the evil "Darkness Whales" organization. She proceeds to indiscriminately take out Darkness Whales members. The actual protagonists are three boy classmates of Kurumi who watch the entire thing while not really doing anything.

- Yuu Hayashi as Kiyoshi Suzuki
