Won't Leave Until She Gets a Dropkick on Her
7 August 2018 | by robinsonaustin-07490See all my reviews

Another series I had been watching is called Dropkick on My Devil! This anime concerns a lamia by the name of Jashin who was a "evil goddess" that was summoned by a young woman named Yurine. Displeased by this, Jashin spends a duration of the anime trying to find ways to end Yurine and return to Hell. Unfortunately for her, Yurine has a wide array of different weapons all of which she is adept at using to punish her.

To think of this show, I like to call it the end result of combining elements from Miss Kobayashi's Dragon maid and Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan. The anime is like an extreme take on old cartoons such as Looney Tunes or Tom and Jerry. Each episode, we have Jashin hatching a scheme to kill Yurine, but due to her incompetence, she fails and Yurine gruesomely inflicts pain on her in response. The first episode has the two girls invite other devil girls (and an angel) to a hot pot party. After some heated tension, Jashin opts to eat all of the meat which leads to Yurine taking a knife and chopping up Jashin's tail to serve as meat. Don't worry, given how Jsahin is immortal, she can regenerate...though it would be painful. You would think that this type of humor would get old quickly, but the show actually does spice it up by providing different fashions in which Yurine would torture Jashin such as one time she put Jashin's hand in a blender. The show really reminds me of Happy Tree Friends in some ways which makes me enjoy the show more. However, this type of visceral slapstick humor isn't for everybody, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is squeamish.

As for characters...I simply despise Jashin. She is probably one of the worst title characters I have seen in a long time. She's annoying, she's selfish, and above all else, she is a jerk. She bullies other demons because she views them as below her; picks on an ice devil to force her to make it snow in her shared apartment room with Yurine; she treats her best friend Medusa as her personal ATM as she would provide her with money to cover for things she buys. Her sense of importance is so inflated, she thinks that she can bully anyone around even though they would often be leagues above her. Worse, she doesn't really have moments where she improves as a character always staying as an egotistical jerk who feels no shame for anything she does.

With Yurine, she has a Lolita style of dress, something that would make her appear fragile. However, that is far from the truth as she is equipped in using several weapons which she can and will use on Jashin. Beyond that, I like how outside of Jashin, she is nice towards the other demon girls and shows some compassion towards others. Though anytime she punishes Jashin whenever she goes too far is always a highlight.

Another character I like is named Pekola. Pekola was an angel who had fallen to Earth after losing her halo. Without her halo, she is exceptionally weak. Pekola lives in a cardboard box and is defined by her perpetual hunger. I don't know why I like her, but I just feel that she's cute with her thousand yard stare and her persistence of trying to reject food that Yurine would offer her under the belief that she was a witch in cahoots with Jashin.

Medusa serves as Jashin's best friend. Despite her name, Medusa is actually pretty adorable so much so, she unwittingly transforms people into stone when they look at her. As such, she has to wear a bag in public. Ironically, Medusa is actually one of the nicest characters in the show often trying to talk Jashin out of trying to murder Yurine to prevent any further punishments, but her pleas often fall on deaf ears.

Minos is another devil girl. She is a minotaur who wears a shirt on her professing 100% beef. One of her quicks is that she is crazy strong, often being unaware of how deadly she could be such as that one time she accidentally broke Jashin's back. However, unlike with Medusa, I feel that Minos gets less exposure, though I think most of it actually has to do with her not appearing until around 40 chapters into the manga IIRC. At the very least, Minos should have more episodes to define her character more.

Lastly, there's Mei Tachibana, a police officer noted to steal things that she deems as cute such as when she tried to steal a statue of Colonel Sanders even when the manager was looking. She becomes infatuated with Jashin and vows to take her home. Mei's mannerisms around Jashin really reminds me of Sanae from Ika Musume. Mei adds a certain flair of madness that makes her stand out in the show which is very much welcome.

Overall, an okay anime even though the title character is a jackass of the highest order. I'd recommend this show for anyone who likes visceral slapstick in the likes of Dokuro-chan or Happy Tree Friends, but if that type of humor isn't your cup of tea, by all means skip it.
