Based on Fujino Oumori’s Japanese light novel series of the same name, ‘Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?’ or ‘Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka’ is a fantasy anime. The show revolves around a young adventurer named Bell Cranel, who begins his long journey of making a name for himself in the city of Orario. Initially, it appears that he is delusional to believe that he can become the greatest adventurer to ever live, but things suddenly take an unexpected turn when he meets the lonely goddess Hestia. This marks the beginning of his quest to push himself to the limits in pursuit of his seemingly impossible dreams.
Danmachi Season 5 Release Date
‘Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? IV’ or ‘Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka IV: Fuka Shou – Yakusai-hen’ released as a split cour on July 9, 2023, and concluded a few months later on March 19, 2023. The series comprises twenty-two episodes each with an average twenty-four-minute runtime. Directed by Hideki Tachibana, the show features talented voice actors like Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, Saori Hayami, Saori Oonishi, Inori Minase, Maaya Uchida, and Haruka Chisuga.
As far as the fifth installment of the show is concerned, here’s everything we know so far. The anime has not been renewed officially for another installment by J.C. Staff or Sentai Filmworks. Typically, anime renewals depend a lot on the availability of source material. In the case of Danmachi, the first four seasons of the show have covered 15 out of 18 volumes of Fujino Oumori’s light novel series. So, there is more than enough material for the creators to make another split-cour season.
Interestingly, the latest season of the series has been well-received by the audiences. The fourth installment of the show has positive reviews on most online platforms and also boasts an impressive rating on MyAnimeList, which is surprisingly better than all its previous seasons. The release of the anime has also successfully boasted manga sales, which is another factor that can positively influence the show’s renewal in the near future.
All of these factors when considered together, do point to the possibility that the anime will be green-lit soon. Assuming that the aforementioned predictions turn out to be true and there are no unforeseen delays, ‘Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka’ or ‘Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?’ season 5 will premiere sometime in Q3 2024.
