What at first seems like a brilliant and simple plan instead lifts the lid off a Pandora’s Box filled with unexpected complications.

Now that Bell’s a dungeon delver himself, the ladies he’s encountering aren’t the helpless damsels in distress he’d imagined, and one of them, the beautiful swordswoman Ais Wallenstein, keeps rescuing Bell instead. As embarrassing as that is, it’s nothing compared to what happens when goddesses get involved. Freya, Hephaistos, and Loki, with their powerful Familias, are intimidating enough, but there’s one goddess whose relationship with Bell is certain to spark trouble. After all, Bell is the ONLY member of the goddess Hestia’s Familia, and she’s not sure if she wants to share him with anyone in IS IT WRONG TO TRY TO PICK UP GIRLS IN A DUNGEON?

  • Firion Hope

    Animu is so pricey…

    • Panpopo

      Yeah, that will never change. At least nowadays you get the whole series in one package, or you can stream. Back in the day you would get maybe 3 or 4 episodes a DVD which you had to buy separately.
