Get ready to know “Sword Princess” Aiz Wallenstein on a whole new level!
Earlier today, SB Creative’s GA Bunko Imprint announced that the upcoming Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Sword Oratoria (Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru no Daro ka? Gaiden: Sword Oratoria, DanMachi: Sword Oratoria henceforth) will hit Japanese TV in April 2017.
As of press time, the sole confirmed crew member is creator Suzuhito Yasuda, who is listed as Original Character Designer.
DanMachi: Sword Oratoria is being produced as the 10th project in GA Bunko‘s 10th anniversary celebration. The title will adapt Fujino Omori and illustrator Kiyotaka Haimura’s light novel series of the same name. Five volumes are currently available under GA Bunko’s imprint, with the most recent hitting in October 2015. A manga adaptation by Takashi Yagi has been running on Square Enix’s Gangan Online web service since May 2014.
Yen Press currently holds the domestic rights to the light novel series, which they will release starting in October 2016.
GA Bunko describes DanMachi: Sword Oratoria as follows:
Sword princess Aiz Wallenstein. Today, again, the strongest female swordsman heads to the massive labyrinth known as the “Dungeon,” along with her comrades. On the 50th floor, where mysteries and threates like a rotting dragon’s corpse that crumbles into ash, and a looming irregularity creeps ever closer to her party, Aiz summons the wind and ventures deeper into the dark depths of the Dungeon. She eventurally finds herself meeting a mysterious boy for the first time.
“Er, are you okay?”
In the Labyrinth City of Orario, the divergent stories of a boy and girl converge!
