'Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? II' OVA Teases Hestia in Swimsuit in Video

January 29 original video anime's island vacation story, Aiz's ending song teased

The "GA FES 2019" event debuted a promotional video for the January 29 Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? II original video anime on Saturday. The project is a spinoff from the second anime season based on Fujino Ōmori and illustrator's Suzuhito Yasuda's light novel series Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? The video teases Hestia and the others in swimsuits, previews the ending theme song "Tropica☆Vacation" by Aiz Wallenstein (Saori Ōnishi), and also outlines the story set before the upcoming third season.

The Hestia Familia adventurers (Bell, Hestia, Welf, Lili, and Mikoto) and another adventurer who helped them out, Ryū, head to an uninhabited island for a vacation. Miach, who bonded with Hestia and the others, had set up their vacation — but of course, there was zero chance that their trip would be uneventful …

The OVA will include a clear case featuring illustrations by character designer Shigeki Kimoto, a new text story by Ōmori, an exclusive booklet, a CD with Aiz's character song, and the clean ending sequence. Yuka Iguchi is contributing the opening theme song "Hello to Dream."

The second anime season premiered on July 12 and ended on Friday. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime, and is streaming it on Crunchyroll. The third season will premiere next summer with new cast member Rina Hidaka as Wiene.

J.C. Staff adapted author Fujino Ōmori and illustrator Suzuhito Yasuda's Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? 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.

Ōmori and illustrator Kiyotaka Haimura's Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Sword Oratoria spinoff light novel series inspired an anime that premiered in April 2017. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime under the title Sword Oratoria: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? On the Side and simulcasted the series in the United States on Amazon's now-defunct Anime Strike streaming service.

The series also inspired the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion anime film, which opened in Japan in February. The film also screened in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand. Sentai Filmworks licensed the film and released it in U.S. theaters on July 23.

Yen Press is releasing both the original novel series and Sword Oratoria, as well as their respective manga adaptations, in North America.
