Synopsis

The huge labyrinth city, Orario, is the gateway to the huge underground maze commonly known as the "Dungeon." Its strange name causes excitement, a place to gain honor, and maybe even a romance with a pretty girl. A place where people hold their breath, hoping to gain all they wish for, a place where a solitary young man meets a little "god."

"Alright, Bell-kun, follow me! It's time for the "Familiar" initiation rite to happen!"
"Yes! I'm going to get stronger!"

The fated meeting of a boy who wants to become an adventurer, and the failed god who doesn't even have a single follower.

This boy's journey as written by the goddess, "Family's Legend" (Familiar's Myth).

{This review encompasses volumes 1-4, which are all that have been translated at the time of writing this}

Danmachi is an interesting story in the sense that it mixes together typical RPG game mechanics with real life. It doesn't actually take place inside a game but rather a fantasy world, however the magic of said world works basically like how a game does. Adventurers gain experience points, earn loot, level up, gain skills and magic etcetera, but it all still takes place in their own actual reality. It's a quite fresh take on what is otherwise a somewhat overused concept in recent years.

Alright. First off, this review is only for the first novel. Back in December, I ordered the novel from Amazon, and decided to read it due to the fact it didn't have an anime yet, and I wouldn't know the story. It was a really good read, and I finished it within the month.

Story:
The story is a tad unusual, mixing real-life and game elements together. The characters are not in a video game, yet they "level up," and gain strength. Once they level up, they gain skills, etc., etc., like an RPG game. This concept confused me for most of the novel, due to the read more

Manga: Yuusha, Aruiwa Bakemono to Yobareta Shoujo
Both titles feature a City with an underground dungeon as their main place for the story, with the MC forming a party and going lower and lower in the dungeon, gaining money to live with the essence of the demons gathered after killing them, with guilds, sword and other weapons, bow guns, magic, ambushes from other adventurers when they're in the dungeon, and so on...
And for both of them include very game-like mechanisms in the reality (stats update in Danmachi, "town portal" in Yuusha Aruiwa bakemono to yobareta shoujo...). the MC of each title can fight with swords and magic equally.
/> However, Danmachi has a male MC very naive who dream of creating a harem and starts weak to progress quickly, whereas for Yuusha Aruiwa bakemono to yobareta shoujo has a smart female MC (the whole team is female), who is extremely powerful from the get go. So only Danmachi has romance, Yuusha Aruiwa bakemono to yobareta shoujo has "friendship" rather than romance as a subject.
