Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? (2015/Sentai Blu-ray Set)

Picture: A Sound: B+ Extras: C Episodes: A-

Long ago, the Gods came down from heavens to live among man. Together, the Gods found followers and adventurers and formed 'familias' to enter the endless labyrinths beneath the great city of Orario. The Gods give their blessings to the adventurers to fight monsters and claim treasures and Gods own fame and glory grows. But Bell Cranel follows his late grandfather's last words to become an adventurer for another reason ...that being an adventurer is a great way to meet girls in Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? (2015).

Bell Cranel is a novice adventurer, but he finds himself as the only follower (at first) of the Goddess Hestia (a.k.a. the loli big breasted goddess) who also happens to have a major crush on him. Bell wants to become stronger to impress the girls, but on his very first adventure he finds himself being rescued by the girl he has a crush on instead. As his skill as an adventurer grows, unknown to him Bell begins to have several girls who are interested in him ...but Hestia will be damned (and so will Bell) if she lets any other girls win Bell's heart first before she does.

This was a fun anime that makes fun of role playing and players of Dungeons and Dragons. It takes all the typical game playing of rpg games. And like the typical anime it has lots of girls, adventure, comedy and romance.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is another winner among the very best Sentai has ever issued on Blu-ray, state-of-the-art and amazing, while the lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo is presented in a passable English dub and a better Japanese version that is really good, including having Pro-Logic like surrounds. Only if it were 5.1, 7.1 or 11.1 could it be better. Extras include clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
