On September 8, 2022, the staff for the anime adaptation of Taichi Kawazoe’s Immoral Guild (Futoku no Guild) erotic, comedy manga released a new trailer highlighting the character Maidena Angers, who is a sorceress that joins hero Kikuru Madan’s party.
You can watch the PV on Media Factory’s official YouTube channel here:
The trailer gives a glimpse of Maidena’s personality and it’s easy to see she is a shy and somewhat clumsy mage. Will Kikuru fall in love with her or add her to his harem? Well, if he does fall for her, courting Maidena doesn’t appear as though! It should be easy since in the trailer she is seen hitting Kikuru over the head and calling him “the worst!”.
Immoral Guild is set to premiere in October 2022. The anime’s opening theme song is titled “Never the Fever!!” and is performed by Sayaka Sasaki.
Japanese singer, songwriter, lyricist, and voice actress Minami Kuribayashi performs the Futoku no Guild ending theme song “Sugar Sugar Spice”. Minami is most known for her role of Haruka Suzumiya in the game and anime Kimi ga Nozomu Eien. She also wrote and performed the anime’s theme songs!
On September 1, 2022, a character video highlighting the cat girl — Hitamu “Hitamuki” Kyan was released.
You can watch the character video, which highlights Hitamuki, here:
The trailer gives a glimpse of Hitamuki’s optimistic and vibrant personality (and also reveals that she is a dedicated martial artist).
What is the plot of Immoral Guild?
The story centers on a young hunter named Kikuru Madan, who is one of the most talented hunters in his guild. He has devoted himself to training hard ever since he was a child and aims to become a first-class hunter. However, once he starts adventuring with his female party members, they end up getting into strange, erotic situations. To make matters even worse, he has no experience with women and these situations just make him feel embarrassed and uncomfortable.
Kikuru swears he’s not doing this on purpose and he can’t fathom why his female party members end up with slimes eating away at their clothes or vine monsters doing naughty things to them. Because of these “immoral incidents,” Kikuru decides he wants to quit his job and laments, “I wonder if this is good for my youth.” Perhaps, all this has something to do with the mischievous novice guard that accompanies him.
