Sentai Filmworks has announced a planned sneak preview of the second season of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? as part of an exclusive event at Anime Expo 2019. The first episode of the new series is set to premiere July 5, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. PDT in Main Events Hall B. This special event is a prelude to Sentai Filmworks’ wider rollout of the series on select digital outlets later in July 2019.
The follow-up to the first season of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? is produced by J.C. Staff and is based upon the light novel series created by Fujino Ōmori. Season 2 follows Bell and Hestia on a new adventure, beginning with events covered in the sixth light novel volume.
“When we launched the original series, Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, to anime fans in 2015, we knew it was going to be tremendous pop culture force because of its unique mix of irreverence, lovable, relatable characters and fantastic story-telling,” said John Ledford, CEO of Sentai Filmworks. “Audiences have been clamoring for a thrilling, direct follow-up ever since and the new series won’t disappoint.”
The latest series heralds the return of fan favorites from the original series along with all-new characters to meet and love. The expanded cast features Ryota Osaka as the sun god, Apollo, along with Haruka Chisuga as prisoner, Sanjouno Haruhime and Akeno Watanabe as the altruist Aisha Belka. Members of Apollo’s Familia include KENN as Hyakinthos Clio, Wakana Kowaka as Daphne Lauros and Ayumi Mano as Cassandra Ilion.
The series will be available Summer 2019 to stream on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
