    Yoshinari Shizuma illustrates the novel series, which won the grand prize at the 20th Dengeki Novel Awards in 2013. Kobashiri and Shizuma launched the series in 2013. Kadokawa published the eighth novel on February 5, and will publish the ninth volume on April 8.

    GA Bunko describes the anime's story:

    Sword Princess Aiz Wallenstein. Today, once again, the strongest female swordsman heads to the giant labyrinth known as the "Dungeon" along with her allies. On the 50th floor where mysteries and threats such as a decayed dragon's corpse that crumbles to ash and an irregularity that creeps ever closer to the party loom, Aiz calls for the wind and heads deeper into the darkness of the Dungeon. Eventually, she finds herself meeting a boy for the first time. "Um, are you OK?" In the Labyrinth City of Orario, the contrasting stories of the boy and the girl intersect!
