Update: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Sword Oratoria reveals new director, returning cast

With the anime spin-off Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Sword Oratoria arriving in April, as SB Creative’s GA Bunko imprint recently revealed, as an extra gift for the season the show’s been given its first staff and cast announcements. While a new director, Youhei Suzuki of The “Hentai” Prince and the Stony Cat, has joined at J.C.Staff, there are some familiar names too. Writer Hideki Shirane, character designer Shigeki Kimoto, and composer Keiji Inai are all returning from Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?.

The cast revealed are all returning from the previous anime as follows:

Saori Onishi as Aiz Wallenstein
Juri Kimura as Lefiya Viridis
Rie Murakawa as Tiona Hiryute
Minami Takahashi as Tione Hiryute

The show adapts the light novels of the same name from the main series’ author Fujino Omori, with illustrations by Kiyotaka Haimura. It’s being released for GA Bunko’s 10th anniversary celebrations, and the publishers describe the story:

Sword princess Aiz Wallenstein. Today, once again, the strongest female swordsman heads to the giant labyrinth known as the “Dungeon” along with her allies. On the 50th floor where mysteries and threats such as a decayed dragon’s corpse that crumbles to ash and an irregularity that creeps ever closer to the party loom, Aiz calls for the wind and heads deeper into the darkness of the Dungeon. Eventually, she finds herself meeting a boy for the first time. “Um, are you OK?” In the Labyrinth City of Orario, the contrasting stories of the boy and the girl intersect!

The Sword Oratoria novels’ seventh volume was published in Japan on December 15th, while Yen Press will release the second volume this February. The English-language publishers licensed the series last year, around the time of the anime’s initial announcement.

  1. While the spin-off announcement is interesting I’d much rather just see the original anime continued given I’d love to know what happens next.
