Anime’s cast, Yuki Miku were slated for Sapporo event on November 7
The official website for the anime of Yukiwo‘s Dropkick on My Devil! (Jashin-chan Dropkick) manga announced on Friday that the anime’s production committee has canceled the anime’s planned “Thank You Dropkick! in Sapporo” event. The event organizers made the decision on the recommendation of police, after receiving a message with an arson threat against the the event’s venue and death threats against the performers and attendees.
The event was scheduled to take place at the Adachi Gakuen Odori Park Hall in Sapporo city on November 7. The event staff reported the threat message to the local police, who then advised the staff to cancel the event.
The event would have featured the anime’s cast with Hokkaido’s Hatsune Miku-based mascot Yuki Miku.
Dropkick on My Devil! X, the third anime season based on the manga, is slated to premiere in the spring of 2022, which will be the 10th anniversary of the original manga.
The original comedy manga by Yukiwo centers on Yurine Hanazono, a college student who summons Jashin-chan, a demon from the underworld. Now they must live together in a run-down apartment in Tokyo’s Jinbōchō district. If Yurine dies, Jashin-chan gets to go back to the underworld, so she constantly plots to kill Yurine.
