We previously got a nice little peek at the upcoming An Archdemon’s Dilemma — How to Love Your Elf Bride anime, and now more details have surfaced. The adaptation is set to premiere in April 2024, and we have more cast members, theme song info, and a new trailer and key visual.

The trailer below previews opening theme song “Wakaranai Ai” by The Brow Beat.


The anime is being made at Brains Base, with Hiroshi Ishiodori of RIN-NE 3 and Kiss Him, Not Me helming the project as director. The person overseeing the series scripts is Aya Yoshinaga, who is known for working on Crest of the Stars. The person tasked with character design is Mina Ōsawa, whose previous credits include Given and The Strongest Sage With the Weakest Crest. The soundtrack is being composed by Yuma Yamaguchi of Metallic Rouge and Undead Murder Farce. The animation is being supervised by Keiji Gotoh, who is known for working on In/Spectre and Kiddy Grade.

The updated cast list includes:

J-Novel Club publishes the original light novels by Fuminori Teshima. Crunchyroll plans to stream the anime as it airs and describes the story like so:

Zagan might be the most feared evil sorcerer, but when it comes to social interactions, he’s the most inept. All those days studying the dark arts won’t help him when he falls in love at first sight with Nephelia, the beautiful elven slave, and spends his entire fortune to purchase her. With no clue how to talk to each other, the awkward arrangement for a bumbling sorcerer and timid elf begins.
