It may be the lone anime release of the week, but MVM’s Sword Oratoria: Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? On The Side Collector’s Edition Combi sports a long enough title to furnish names for half a dozen other shows.
A spin-off of J.C.Staff fantasy Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, the 12-episode, Yōhei Suzuki-helmed Sword Oratoria retells the main story from the perspective of Bell Cranel’s crush, statuesque blonde adventurer Aiz Wallenstein – highlighting events involving the Loki Familia that only received brief mentions in the original series.
While Aiz is the putative heroine of Sword Oratoria, she actually shares the protagonist slot with cute elf mage Lefiya, whose single-minded devotion to the airheaded sword princess even rivals that of Bell. We also get to spend more time with mischief goddess Loki’s other followers, such as arrogant beastman Bete and Amazon sisters Tione and Tiona.
