With the feature film for Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? out this weekend in Japan, the big stage event for it came with a welcome reveal. We knew previously that a second season was coming and to expect it after the film and now it’s been set for the summer 2019 season, which feels pretty ideal for the show. The first season landed in the spring 2017 season and has seen a release though Sentai Filmworks in North America already.
Check out our review of the first season.
The first season anime adaptation of Fujino Omori’s light novel series was directed by Yoshiki Yamakawa at JC Staff based on scripts and composition by Hideki Shirane and character designs by Shigeko Kimoto.
Yen Press currently brings a wide array of novels and manga to North America while Sentai Filmworks handles the home video releases of the anime properties so far.
Plot concept: Some adventurers delve into the sprawling labyrinths beneath the city of Orario to find fame and fortune. Others come to test their skills against the legions of monsters lurking in the darkness below. However, Bell Cranel’s grandfather told him a different reason: it’s a great place to rescue (and subsequently meet) girls! Now that Bell’s a dungeon delver himself, the ladies he’s encountering aren’t the helpless damsels in distress he’d imagined, and one of them, the beautiful swordswoman Ais Wallenstein, keeps rescuing Bell instead. As embarrassing as that is, it’s nothing compared to what happens when goddesses get involved. Freya, Hephaistos, and Loki, with their powerful Familias, are intimidating enough, but there’s one goddess whose relationship with Bell is certain to spark trouble.
