The spring 2017 anime series Sword Oratoria: Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? On the Side is having its home video release handled by Warner Bros. Japan and they previously brought out the singles for it and a box set run. They’re now bringing out a new slim compact release that replicates what we saw back in 2018 with a February 26th, 2020 debut where it’ll be priced at 10,780 yen. Sadly, they’re just going with a key art visual design for it but that’s what we get half the time with a compact set. It’s a single-disc release that’s been reauthored from the six-volume release. That run was brought out where the DVDs are priced at 6,000 yen and the Blu-rays at 7,000 yen that began on June 28th, 2017.

The series was directed by Youhei Suzuki based on the series composition by Hideki Shirane. Shigeki Kimoto handled the character designs and it was animated at JC Staff.

The Japanese cast includes Saori Ōnishi as Aiz Wallenstein, Mutsumi Tamura as Finn Deimne, Juri Kimura as Lefiya Viridis, Nobuhiko Okamoto as Bete Loga, Rie Murakawa as Tiona Hiryute, Minami Takahashi as Tione Hiryute, Ayako Kawasumi as Riveria Ljos Alf (replacing Risa Taneda), Kenji Nomura as Gareth Landrock and Yurika Kubo as Loki.

The light novel series kicked off back in 2014 and has over seven volumes out while a manga adaptation kicked off later that same year, seeding the overall marketing saturation for it beyond just the core series. Yen Press has licensed both of them.

Plot concept: Aiz Wallenstein, the Sword Princess, is known as one of the most powerful warriors from one of the most powerful groups in the city of Orario: Loki Familia.

With them, she ventures into the deepest parts of the labyrinthine Dungeon beneath the city, stalking the monstrous denizens that lurk there and vanquishing them with the blazing light of her sword. But when she meets a certain white-haired boy, the encounter will change both of them forever…
