Earlier today, fans flocked to the “GA Bunko 2018 Happyō Stage” event at Wonder Festival. During the show, it was announced that the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? (also known as “DanMachi”) anime is getting a feature film.
The new project, titled Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion(Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darō ka: Arrow of the Orion) will feature an original story by series author Fujino Ōmori.
The first key visual, plus a short teaser trailer were shown off for the project. We break the details down below:

The first season of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? aired in the Spring 2015 broadcast season. Yoshiki Yamakawa (Kill Me Baby, Little Busters!) directed the series at J.C. Staff, while Shigeki Kimoto (Sky Girls) provided character designs. Hideki Shirane (Aria the Scarlet Ammo, Queen’s Blade: Rebellion) was in charge of series composition.
Sentai Filmworks currently holds the rights to the DanMachi anime.
Yen Press currently holds the rights to Fujino Ōmori and illustrator Suzuhito Yasuda’s DanMachi light novels and manga. They describe the title as:
In Orario, fearless adventurers band together in search of fame and fortune within the monstrous underground labyrinth known as Dungeon.
But while riches and renown are incentive enough for most, Bell Cranel, would-be hero extraordinaire, has bigger plans.
He wants to pick up girls.
Is it wrong to face the perils of Dungeon alone, in a single-member guild blessed by a failed goddess? Maybe. Is it wrong to dream of playing hero to hapless maidens in Dungeon? Maybe not. After one misguided adventure, Bell quickly discovers that anything can happen in the labyrinth–even chance encounters with beautiful women. The only problem? He’s the one who winds up the damsel in distress!
