Once they get famous, seiyuu become a source of pride for their hometowns. One such example is Aina Suzuki, who voiced yaashin-chan from the Dropkick on My Devil! anime. Her hometown of Chitose in Hokkaido is quite proud of her achievements as a seiyuu.
The series creator and mangaka, Yukiwo, released a new illustration featuring Jaashin-chan in her seiyuu’s own hometown. It is an official collaboration between the franchise and Chitose.
The collaboration features the city’s most beloved local fish, the chippu, which is a variety of sockeye salmon. It can be found in Lake Shikotsu in Chitose and is quite the delicacy there. They’re also releasing button pins and keychains featuring Jaashin-chan as a mermaid, with half of her body as a chippu instead of being a lamia.
Chitose will also be distributing posters of the lovable demon girl around the city, along with Yurine brandishing a traditional Ainu fishing pole, starting today, 1st August. As for the merchandise, the badges cost 540 yen, while the keychains at 810 yen. They will be available at the Chitose Salmon Park road station, also starting 1st August.
As for the anime, a second season has been confirmed. Here’s how Amazon Prime, which also streams the anime, describes its 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!
