As of press time, no further details have been announced.
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Sword Oratoria is based on Fujino Omori and illustrator Kiyotaka Haimura’s light novel series of the same name. The series aired in the Spring 2017 broadcast season. Sentai Filmworks streamed the show exclusively on Anime Strike in North America.
Youhei Suzuki (SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist, The “Hentai” Prince and the Stony Cat) directed the show at J.C. Staff, with Shigeki Kimoto (Sky Girls) providing character designs. Hideki Shirane (Aria the Scarlet Ammo, Date A Live) was in charge of series composition.
Kimito, Shirane, and Inai all worked on the original DanMachi anime series.
Sentai Filmworks describes the show as:
Ais Wallenstein’s life changed forever on the fateful day she met Bell Cranel, but while Bell’s story launched him into his future, her story sends her deeper into her past. Within the dungeon’s treacherous depths, Ais and the other members of the Loki Familia encounter an irregularity that could threaten not just their party, but their entire world.
Nine volumes of the Sword Oratoria light novels were released as of press time, with the most recent hitting stores on June 15, 2017. 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.
