Anime Expo 2019 to Host DanMachi Movie Premiere; Series Creator to Attend


DanMachi Arrow of Orion Anime VisualIn a press release sent out earlier today, Sentai Filmworks revealed that not only will they be hosting the North American premiere of the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion movie at Anime Expo 2019 but they will also be hosting the series creator, Fujino Omori, and the producers for the anime Nobuhiro Osawa and Yuji Matsukura for a special Q&A session! The screening will occur July 4, 2019, at 1:30 PM at Anime Expo in Los Angeles. The movie is set to get a nationwide theatrical release at the end of July (tickets for that screening will go on sale via Fathom Events on June 21).

Originally premiering in Japan on February 15, 2019, Fathom Events describes the story as:

Far from the dungeon beneath Oraria rises a new threat, one the beautiful goddess Artemis has sworn to destroy with the help of her chosen warrior. But this fighter isn’t the renowned Ais Wallenstein or another storied hero of Orario legend. Instead the fate of Artemis’ quest falls upon the shoulders of Bell Cranell, who must partner with the goddess and stand against the menace lurking in the remains of a distant, ancient city. Although Bell is the ordained champion of Artemis and a member of the goddess Hestia’s familia, their adventure will test every skill and take every ounce of courage that Bell has — and perhaps, along the way, turn him into the hero he has always aspired to be.

The second television season of DanMachi is also premiering on July 12, 2019, and will feature the original cast and a mostly original crew (Hideki Tachibana is replacing Yoshiki Yamakawa as director).
