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, began streaming a teaser promotional video for the anime on Thursday.

The video confirms the following cast:

Youhei Suzuki (The "Hentai" Prince and the Stony Cat., Urara Meirochō) is serving 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 anime will premiere in 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!

Yen Press is releasing the novel series in English, along with the original Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? light novel series and the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? manga adaptation.

The Sword Oratoria 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.
