I've been wondering about the dialect/way of speech that Yuugiri has, and trying to find what it actually is. I know that it is old Japanese but trying to find any information about it is difficult. I remember that in Show by Rock!! Darydayuu has a similar dialect.

Does anyone have any information about this dialect/way of speech? I'm very interested in Japanese language and culture and I'd love to learn about it more.

In the end of episode 1 when all of them were waking up, she asks "Whats all the commotion?" and the way she says it doesn't sound like the japanese that is used nowadays. It isn't a lot, I know, but still made me wonder about this dialect that I have heard in other series as well.

In episode 1, around 21:25. It is very short, but you can hear the distinct way she says the line.

So she says "nan'ya sawagashi de arisu na"
ya is a Kansai-ben particle, and de arisu is the contracted form of de arimasu, formal language

so yeah since she wears a kimono that means Kansai too, so maybe old imperial court like you say, I'm not that familiar with

though.
