Aniplus-Asia announced last Friday that it has licensed the Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion (Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darō ka: Arrow of the Orion) anime film, and will screen it in Southeast Asia. Aniplus-Asia did not specify in which countries and territories it will screen the film, but the official Japanese Twitter account for the film previously announced that the film will have a release in Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand.
The film opened in Japan on February 15.
Katsushi Sakurabi (Flying Witch, Heaven's Memo Pad, Lostorage incited WIXOSS), an episode director on the television anime, directed the film at J.C. Staff instead of the television anime's series director Yoshiki Yamakawa. Fujino Ōmori, the author of the original light novel series, wrote the screenplay instead of the television anime's staff writers. Shigeki Kimoto once again adapted Suzuhito Yasuda's original character designs for animation. Keiji Inai composed the music as he did for the television anime, and Warner Brothers distributed the film in Japan.
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, and Aniplus-Asia aired the anime as a simulcast as it aired in Japan. It also aired the original video anime (OVA) in February 2017. The anime will have a second season that will premiere this summer.
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. Aniplus-Asia also aired a simulcast of the anime.
