Yukiwo’s Jashin-chan Dropkick manga launched in the pages of Holp Shuppan’s Comic Meteor magazine in April 2012. The series currently spans nine collected volumes, with the most recent hitting stores on December 12.
Manga resource Baka-Updates describes the title as:
Jyashin-chan Dropkick is a violent slapstick comedy about a delusional gothic lolita, Yurine, who summons a demon girl with the tail of a cobra, Jyashin-chan.
They’ll have to live together — until Yurine finds a way to send Jyashin-chan back to hell, or until Jyashin-chan kills Yurine.
