The series has also been adapted into an anime film by the name of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion. Season one of the series debuted in April 2015 and the second season aired in July and ended in September 2019 with the prospect of a season three.
Season three of the anime was supposed to air in July 2020 but is postponed to October. This date is just for temporary reference and has not been finalised yet. Any future decisions regarding the broadcast schedule will be updated immediately.
