posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Sentai Filmworks announced at its panel at the Anime Central event on Saturday that its screening of the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion film will be held on July 23.
The Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion anime film opened in Japan on February 15.
Sentai Filmworks describes the film:
Far from the dungeon beneath Oraria rises a new threat, one the beautiful goddess Artemis has sworn to destroy with the help of her chosen warrior. But this fighter isn't the renowned Ais Wallenstein or another storied hero of Orario legend. Instead the fate of Artemis' quest falls upon the shoulders of Bell Cranell, who must partner with the goddess and stand against the menace lurking in the remains of a distant, ancient city. Although Bell is the ordained champion of Artemis and a member of the goddess Hestia's familia, their adventure will test every skill and take every ounce of courage that Bell has — and perhaps, along the way, turn him into the hero he has always aspired to be.
Katsushi Sakurabi (Flying Witch, Heaven's Memo Pad, Lostorage incited WIXOSS), an episode director on the television anime, directed the film at J.C. Staff instead of the television anime's series director Yoshiki Yamakawa. Fujino Ōmori, the author of the original light novel series, wrote the screenplay instead of the television anime's staff writers. Shigeki Kimoto once again adapted Suzuhito Yasuda's original character designs for animation. Keiji Inai composed the music as he did for the television anime.
J.C. Staff adapted the novels into a television anime in 2015. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for North America, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. The show's second season, titled Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darō ka Familia Myth II, will premiere in July.
