Well, it looks like the crowdfunding campaign for Dropkick on my Devil! Season 3 is now done. And yes folks, we’re really getting a third season for the hilarious supernatural anime. It ended last ended on December 31 at 11:59 p.m. JST, confirming that the third season, now officially titled Dropkick on My Devil! X (Jashin-chan Dropkick X), will indeed be happening. It had 2,880 backers and raised 36,181,238 yen.
The anime will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Yukiwo’s manga of the same name, and it will premiere in 2022, which is when the 10th anniversary will happen.
As for the crowdfunding campaign, it launched last September 2020 and met its goal in just 33 hours. Rewards for backers include an illustration from mangaka Yukiwo, a message from Jashin-chan’s seiyuu, Aina Suzuki, and two new songs from the anime’s two seiyuu units, Fallen Pop and the Destiny Noisy. There are also many other rewards for backers as well, including having their name listed in the anime’s ED credits. Those who pledged 22,000 yen can even create the titles for episodes, and one backer who pledged 1.1 million yen can even name the title for the third season. So far, no title has been decided yet.
Here’s how Amazon Prime describes the first season’s story:
Jashin-chan, a devil from Hell was abruptly summoned to the human world by Yurine Hanazono, a stoic college student who lives in a run-down apartment in Jinbocho. They’re forced to become roommates since Yurine doesn’t know how to send Jashin-chan back. But according to Jashin-chan, she could return by killing Yurine, so she takes action…?! A viperous roomie comedy that keeps you on your toes!
