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 (6/24 eps)
Looking for some isekai trash? Revenge? Level/Stat system? Power leveling? Cheats? Harem? Fan service? A sob/melancholic start? Shallow world-building? Stupid side/extra characters to make the main one look good?
Well what are you doing here? This is the wrong anime.

Uhhh welp, I'll keep this short, this is Dungeon Meshi. An original fantasy story by RPG geek Ryoko Kui.
She puts her knowledge of RPGs on full display and crafts a world where each character, race, monster and place fits into the story. Layers of this world and characters will be peeled back and revealed to you as you progress in each episode.

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 ...

This review is going to be short and sweet, I'll avoid being too specific so it can remain spoiler free too.

Delicious in Dungeon centres around cooking and eating different monsters the main characters defeat, it's not a new idea by any means. I don't necessarily dislike the concept but having an entire show dedicated to that quickly becomes boring and repetitive. The content(or lack thereof) in these first 6 episodes really should've been covered in 3, the pacing is just too slow. It's also a comedy but doesn't really entertain in that way. The jokes are very run of the mill and uncreative. The artsyle ...
