Youhei Suzuki to direct spinoff series

The official website for the upcoming Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Sword Oratoria (Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru no Darō ka? Gaiden: Sword Oratoria) television anime, an adaptation of the spinoff light novel series of the same name from author Fujino Ōmori and illustrator Kiyotaka Haimura, revealed on Thursday the show's staff and some of the returning cast.

Youhei Suzuki (The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat., Urara Meirochō) will serve as the show's new director at J.C. Staff. Writer Hideki Shirane, character designer Shigeki Kimoto, and composer Keiji Inai are returning from the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? television anime.

The cast includes:

The anime will premiere next April. The project serves as the 10th project to commemorate GA Bunko's 10th anniversary. GA Bunko describes 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 spinoff light novels have also inspired an ongoing manga adaption by Takashi Yagi on Square Enix's web magazine Gangan Online.

J.C. Staff adapted the original 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.
