The official website for the Chimimo original television anime began streaming its third promotional video for the anime on Thursday. The video spotlights the three sisters Mutsumi, Hazuki, and Mei, and it previews the anime's opening theme song "Marukoppa" by Chiaki Mayumura.

The 12 demons along with "Jigoku-san" go to the human world, but Jigoku-san and Chimimo become freeloaders to a family of three sisters named Mutsumi, Hazuki, and Mei.
