Fans of the Hestia Familial and blue ribbons are going to be excited about Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion. The all-new movie will debut in 2019.
The anime’s original voice cast will reprise their roles for the film, and most of the staff will return to J.C. Staff for the production. However, Katsushi Sakurabi (Flying Witch / Heaven’s Memo Pad) will replace Yoshiki Yamakawa as the director and Danmachi Fujino Omori creator will write the original script.
Writer Omori and illustrator Suzuhito Yasuda have been working on Danmachi since January 2013. The fantasy series centers on Bell, a boy who becomes an adventurer in order to pick up girls. However, a near-death encounter forces Bell to improve his skills and join Hestia’s Familial to work with a proper party – too bad he’s Hestia’s only member! The minor set back doesn’t stop Bell as he’s more determined than ever to get stronger and meet up with Ais Wallenstein, who is the woman that saved Bell’s life.
J.C. Staff produced a 13 episode adaptation that aired in 2015. They also produced the Ais-centric spin-off series Sword Oratoria, which aired in 2017.
