Chimimo is a heartwarming hell comedy starring the Chimimo, 12 messengers of hell/shape-shifting evil demons. They are out on a mission with Hell-san/Jigoku-san (CV: Junichi Suwabe) to turn the human world into hell...except, they realize the human world is scarier than they thought.

Instead, the Chimimo and Hell-san end up living with the Onigami sisters Mei (CV: Yuria Nara), Hazuki (CV: Ai Kakuma), and Mutsumi (CV: Mamiko Noto), who are probably scarier than Jigoku-san himself!

The opening theme is「マルコッパ」 (Romaji: Marukoppa) sung by Chiaki Mayumura.
