'Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?' OVA Slated for December 7

The official Twitter account of Fujino Ōmori's Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? (Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru no Darō ka?) light novel series announced on Wednesday that the franchise's new original video anime (OVA) is slated for December 7. The OVA will have both a Blu-ray Disc and DVD release, and will include one episode, a CD with the ending theme song sung by Hestia, an 8-page booklet, a newly recorded audio commentary, and the credit-less ending sequence.

The Blu-ray Disc box of the novel's television anime is also slated for release on the same date, and it will also include the OVA.

Yen Press began publishing the original novel series in North America in 2014, and it describes the story:

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!!

The original light novel series debuted in Japan in 2013, and it has sold over 4 million copies. Yen Press also licensed the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Sword Oratoria spinoff light novel series and Kunieda's manga adaptation of the original light novel series. Sword Oratoria inspired its own manga adaptation on Square Enix's web magazine Gangan Online.

J.C. Staff adapted the light novel series into a television anime in 2015. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for North America, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.
