A third promotional video has been released for upcoming original TV comedy anime Chimimo, scheduled to air in Japan on July 7, 2022.
The anime is produced by studio Shin-Ei Animation, with original character designs by Kanahei. The series is directed by Aruto Pino.
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.
