The first anime season aired with 13 episodes in Spring 2015. The second season premiered on July 13. Crunchyroll simulcast the second season, while HIDIVE streamed an English dub. The light novel also inspired the Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka: Orion no Ya anime film, which opened in theaters in Japan on February 15.

J.C.Staff also produced a 12-episode television anime of Omori and illustrator Kiyotaka Haimura's Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Gaiden: Sword Oratoria side-story novel in Spring 2017, adapting the first four volumes. SB Creative published the 12th volume on July 13. Square Enix shipped the 14th compiled volume of Takashi Yagi's manga adaptation on July 12.
