Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? III is the third season of this ongoing series. As a result, you should not watch this unless you’ve already watched the two prior seasons.

This story takes place in a fantasy world where the gods have descended on the world of mortals and recruited mortals into “families.” The main goal of these families is to honor the god leading that family and to descend into a seemingly infinite dungeon. Inside the dungeon are monsters and everyone wants to go down and conquer the dungeon for treasure and glory.

The most jarring aspect of this anime is the animation quality. Episode one was animated very well. Then the animation quality drops for most of the season until the last episode, where it gets only slightly better. It’s a mess. As someone who cares about animation quality, I’m tempted to just recommend watching the first episode and then quitting the rest of the season.

The story is okay. The protagonist finds a sentient monster in the dungeon and now we have to deal with the consequences of that as the society in this world has been brutally killing all monsters for thousands of years.

Overall, this was okay. If you enjoyed the last two seasons, then you should watch this just to see more of this fantasy world. Otherwise, I would not recommend this series to anyone who hasn’t watch any of the prior two seasons. Additionally, this season was so mediocre that I do not recommend watching the last two seasons just to catch up and watch this season. It’s not worth it.
