Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? will be featured in Minna no Kuji ("Lottery for Everybody"), a lottery that everyone can win. The Grand Prize will be a figure of Hestia. The figure is different than the one Kotobukiya teased earlier this week.

As for the other prizes, they are:

  • a cushion
  • a desk mat
  • a scarf towel
  • a glass
  • one of three badges

The consolation prize will be a "specially colored" version of the Hestia figure.


The scarf towels featuring the series' characters

Hestia and her notorious costume design have been picking up steam lately, with the associated Twitter thread #例の紐 (That String) getting more and more bizarre. She has become something of a cosplay challenge, and the anime-oriented vendors of Akihabara, Tokyo's electronics district, are stepping up to the plate. Lashinbang is selling Those Strings, while Melon Books is giving them away for free.


Cosplayer @atelierspana even designed a Hestia costume complete with artificial bust to assist aspiring cosplayers with more modest bust sizes.
