Adventuring knight Laios Touden leads a small party through a seemingly endless dungeon, a subterranean maze full of dangerous monsters and precarious traps. Through the use of advanced magic, an explorer can sometimes be resurrected, allowing them to learn from past mistakes and give traversing the dungeon another go. However, when a powerful dragon eats Falin, Laios' spellcasting sister, she sends her brother and his companions back to the beginning to save them from permanent ends.

Though strapped for cash and equipment, Laios resolves to fight his way through the dungeon and rescue Falin before she can be digested by the dragon. Despite some of Laios' allies abandoning him, two remain by his side: elven mage Marcille Donato and halfling locksmith Chilchuck Tims. Due to their lack of funds, the party faces the daunting prospect of starving before being able to complete their quest. However, they find salvation in Senshi, a dwarven warrior with a penchant for cooking and safely eating defeated monsters.

With Senshi's culinary expertise, Laios and his companions struggle through the dungeon while learning about gourmet dining—and each other—along the way.

Preliminary (13/24 eps)
It’s great. No idea why the score is sub 8, this should easily be up there with frieren and solo leveling for best anime of the season.

It’s funny, has good action, interesting characters, a plot that keeps pushing forward, and a ton of mystery that keeps me interested. The animation is also top notch - it manages to keep the original mangas style while also letting trigger play around with their classic flair.

Especially now in the second half the plot is really starting to pick up and it’s all i can do to not run to the manga to see what happens next.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (13/24 eps)
One thing to say one thing about this anime.

Its not like any of the other dungeon anime that i have seen before. When you see the title, you will expect it would be some cooking anime that takes place in a dungeon. But heck no, you are in for a ride.

It would take some time to get hooked with the series, the first episodes were a bit slow, but trust me, it takes off somewhere in the middle

I have a mixed feelings about this, i do not know if I would recommend it or not, but I can tell myself Im a picky one when ...

Preliminary (14/24 eps)
The show promised to be a Comedy, Fantasy, Gourmet.
In the first 11 episodes, it was an average gourmet show at best.
Then they decided to turn it into a dark edgy thriller with no heads or tails.
Given the pace, they will not explain what happened in first season.
I judge a show by the order of Genres.
So, in this show, if I see any episode without comedy or gourmet, it is a trash episode.
And it has ultimately turned into one.
It could have been a happy go lucky gourmet comedy fantasy.
But trying too much turned it into a poorly planned, written and executed anime.
Screenplay - 3/10
