An April premiere window has been announced for the An Archdemon’s Dilemma: How to Love Your Elf Bride anime adaptation. Also revealed were new promotional material in the form of a main trailer and key visual, plus additional cast and opening song artist details.

The newly announced cast names are Hana Hishikawa as Chastille, Kishou Taniyama as Barbatos, Akane Misaka as Foll, Tetsu Inada as Raphael, and Ayasa Itou as Manuela. The opening song, “Wakaranaiai” will be performed by The Brow Beat.

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, which began in 2017 and has 17 volumes as of August 2023. 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 novels have also inspired a side story drawn by Momo Futaba.
