On the official Twitter account for the anime adaptation of Jashin-chan Dropkick (Dropkick On My Devil!(c) two press releases were published reporting on two matters of “high importance” to the performance. In the first of them, they reported that they will allow the creation of “secondary content” (that is, the publication of fragments of episodes of the series) on platforms such as YouTube, Niconico Video, among others.
In fact, the production points out that it will take half of the income received by the videos that use the production material, and that the other half, logically, belongs to the creator of the material. More importantly, however, is the second statement, which gives information about plans to produce a fourth season, which will depend on the participation of fans.
Write the statement in question:
- A full season of TV animation costs about 300 million yen (just over US$2 million) to produce. Currently, the “Jashin-chan Dropkick” committee does not have the ability to raise these funds. So, the first challenge will be to produce an OVA (original video animation not broadcast on TV) through a fundraising campaign, which has already been done three times.
- One episode will be shown with a target amount of 30 million yen (over US$207,000), and one episode will be added for every additional 30 million yen. The episode, or episodes created, will not be broadcast on television, but will be delivered at events and through syndication.
- And we want to continue this initiative in the future for several installments, and one day, when all twelve episodes are collected, we want to collect them all and broadcast them as the TV animation “Jashin-chan Dropkick 4th Season”. This great project is the culmination of all the work done so far by the production committee, with various events planned in the company of the fans.
Summary of Jashin-chan Dropkick
The demon Jashin-chan has been summoned to Earth by Yurine Hanazuno, a girl with a gift for the occult. Unfortunately, Yurine doesn’t know how to send Jashin-chan back to hell. Now that she is stuck on Earth, she has to live in Yurine’s apartment as she knows. The only way for Jashin-chan to return is to kill her summon, but that’s easier said than done for the incompetent demon. Since Jashin-chan has died and is able to regenerate her body, Yurine does not hesitate to attack her with various weapons, punishing her in horrible ways for her evil plans. Jashin-chan is also frequently visited by her demon friends: the good-natured Gorgon Medusa and the energetic minotaur Minosu, who seem much more polite in contrast, and who do not agree with her plans to kill Yurine. kill.
