An Archdemon’s Dilemma: How to Love Your Elf Bride Anime Coming in 2024, Teaser Trailer and Visual Released


The An Archdemon’s Dilemma: How to Love Your Elf Bride anime adaptation announced last year will premiere sometime in 2024. A teaser trailer and a teaser visual with two variations — one has the main characters with embarrassed faces — have been released in the meantime.

Aside from the promo materials, we’ve learned that Yuusuke Kobayashi and Kana Ichinose are voicing the lead characters Zagan and Nephelia, respectively. The animation production company and main staff, which includes Hiroshi Ishiodori (Kiss Him, Not Me; Duel Masters) as director, were also revealed. Brain’s Base is producing An Archdemon’s Dilemma: How to Love Your Elf Bride with Keiji Gotou (In/Spectre director) as animation supervisor, Aya Yoshinaga (Kurau: Phantom Memory) as series composer, Mina Oosawa (Given) as character designer, and yuma yamaguchi (Undead Girl Murder Farce) as music composer.

An Archdemon’s Dilemma: How to Love Your Elf Bride is based on the HJ Bunko light novels written by Fuminori Teshima and illustrated by COMTA. J Novel Club, which licenses both the light novels and Hako Itagaki‘s manga adaptation, describes the former as:

Zagan is feared by the masses as an evil sorcerer. Both socially awkward and foulmouthed, he spends his days studying sorcery while beating down any trespassers within his domain. One day he’s invited to a dark auction, and what he finds there is an elven slave girl of peerless beauty, Nephy. Having fallen in love at first sight, Zagan uses up his entire fortune to purchase her, but being a poor conversationalist, he has no idea how to properly interact with her. Thus, the awkward cohabitation of a sorcerer who has no idea how to convey his love and his slave who yearns for her master but has no idea how to appeal to him begins.

The light novel series began in 2017 and has 17 volumes as of August 2023. Aside from the manga adaptation, it has also inspired a side story drawn by Momo Futaba.
