“Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?” a.k.a. Danmachi was first released in 2015 and now the release date of the second season of the anime TV series is finally coming closer. Even though you must be happy to hear that, you might also be slightly disappointed when you hear the following – the upcoming season will not be delivered as a sequel to the previous one, but as a side story prequel instead. It is directed by Yohei Suzuki and written by Hideki Shirane, while Shigeki Kimoto designs the anime characters.
If you are a fan of Danmachi manga series, you probably expect Bell and Hestia to be the focus of attention in the new entry, but that won’t be the case. Season 2 will revolve around Bell’s girlfriend Aiz Wallenstein and the Loki Familia. It will shed some light on Aiz’s past and her relationships with other people, especially with Bell, whom she treats like a rabbit.
As for the Loki Familia, at some point, they realize that the dungeon is not that safe and that, thus, their lives might be threatened. This prompts them to start looking for another entrance to the dungeon.
In addition to the characters mentioned above, the second season will also be somewhat focused on further development of some other characters, such as the Kali Familia.
Danmachi Season 2 Release Date
After the great success of the first season, some speculated that Danmachi Season 2 would be delivered right away in 2016. However, others thought that such ambitious plan would be difficult to carry out and that it would take some time and they were right. The upcoming season is scheduled to be released in April 2017 in Japan. When it comes to the official U.S. air date, it has not been announced yet. But, you should not forget that Sword Oratoria Volume 8 is also coming out soon, on April 15.
