Both anime premiere this weekend

Aniplus-Asia announced last Friday and Sunday that it will air a simulcast of the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? III and Hypnosis Mic -Division Rap Battle- Rhyme Anima television anime.

Aniplus-Asia's simulcast of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? III will begin on October 2. The anime will also premiere in Japan on October 2, delayed from its original July premiere date due to the effects of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The anime is the third anime season based on Fujino Ōmori and Suzuhito Yasuda's light novel series. The third season will feature a returning staff and cast.

Rina Hidaka is joining the cast as the character Wiene, who was teased at the end of the final episode of the second season. Yuka Iguchi is returning to perform the anime's opening theme song "Over and Over." The band sajou no hana are performing the anime's ending theme song.

The anime's first season premiered in April 2015 and had 13 episodes, and the second season premiered in July 2019 and had 12 episodes. The anime franchise also includes two OVAs, the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion film, and the Sword Oratoria: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? On the Side spinoff television series.

Aniplus-Asia's simuclast of Hypnosis Mic -Division Rap Battle- Rhyme Anima will premiere on October 3 at 1:00 a.m. GMT +8. The anime will premiere in Japan on October 2.

The anime is a television anime for the Hypnosis Mic mixed-media franchise.

The anime's production committee announced in May that the anime's broadcast and streaming premiere has been delayed from July to October. The committee explained that it is prioritizing the health and safety of the staff and cast, in light of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the resulting government declaration of the state of emergency at the time.

Katsumi Ono (Hataraki Man, Senki Zesshō Symphogear sequels, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, Girly Air Force) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures, and Minako Shiba (Black Butler, DAKAICHI -I'm being harassed by the sexiest man of the year-, .hack//SIGN, Noir) is designing the characters for animation. Shin Yoshida (Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, Zone of the Enders) is in charge of the series scripts.

The franchise's Division All Stars are performing the opening theme song "Hypnosis Mic -Rhyme Anima-." The musical duo invisible manners penned the song's lyrics, music, and arrangement, as they have done for the franchise's anthem songs in the past.

The franchise's cast members are reprising their roles for the anime.
