Dropkick On My Devil! Season 2 release date confirmed for spring 2020: Jashin-chan Dropkick sequel green lit due to Blu-Ray/DVD sales, claims studio Nomad [Manga Spoilers]

Jashin-chan Dropkick Season 2 is already being teased by anime studio Nomad. Plus, an Episode 12/OVA was released exclusively for Amazon Prime Video.

In June 2019, the official website for the anime series announced that Dropkick On My Devil! Season 2 will premiere in 2020. (Please see below for the exact date.)

Thus far, it’s known that Nichika Omori is reprising her role of Yurine Hanazono on the cast. In March 2019, a live-stream event announced new cast members Nanami Yamashita and Minami Tanaka, who will play as Kyon-Kyon and Oneechan (Kyon-Kyon’s older sister), respectively.

Studio Nomad has stated that they barely managed to produce Dropkick On My Devil! Season 2 based on the Blu-Ray/DVD sales. In September 2018, the official Twitter page for Jashin-chan Dropkick released a trailer video for the Blu-Ray/DVD box sets and noted that if the “box sets sell a lot we can make a sequel! I will also give you an angel-like award, so what’s the matter with you?”

Later in October 2018, they clarified that if the Blu-ray box sets sold a combined amount of 2,000 copies before the Sugoi Sabato event on January 20, 2019, then the second season would definitely be greenlit by executive producer Kouichirou Natsume. According to the official Twitter account, pre-orders for the Blu-ray box sets had already reached over 1,500 copies as of November 2018.

During the Sugoi Sabato event, they made the final announcement. The box set sales barely made the goal by selling 2,001 copies combined. The 11 episodes of the Blu-Ray/DVD release are divided into two volumes. The first box sold 1,043 copies, while the second box sold 958 copies.

The Japanese release date for the first volume was on October 29, 2018. Each box set comes with original artwork and a 10-page comic by the manga creator among other bonuses.
