Delicious in Dungeon
Volume 1


After the Golden Kingdom is sunk underground by an insane magician, its king emerges, promising all of his treasure to any who defeat the magician, before crumbling to dust. Guilds are spurred on by this promise, traversing the labyrinthine dungeon in search of the magician. Laios, the leader of one such guild, encounters a dragon that wipes out his party and devours his sister Falin. Despite having lost the entirety of their supplies and belongings, Laios along with Marcille, an elven healer, and Chilchuck, a halfling thief, immediately reenter the dungeon, determined to save Falin.

Time being of the essence, Laios suggests the taboo of eating the monsters of the dungeon as a means of gathering supplies. Upon the preparation of their first meal in the dungeon, they are stopped by an onlooking dwarf named Senshi. An enthusiast of monster cooking, he helps them prepare their monster ingredients for safe consumption. After learning of Laios' circumstances, Senshi expresses his desire to cook a dragon and joins their guild, thus beginning their food-filled foray into the dungeon together.

First the art style. Perhaps that is the most important aspect of both a fantasy series and a food series. And this manga nails it. Not only does it always serve you delicious-looking food you can taste straight from the pages, but it also sports some of the most gorgeous character designs. While certainly not unique or deviates from the genre, the ...

As a Biology graduate who has delved into the subject of ecosystems, Dungeon Meshi provides a breath of fresh air in the fantasy genre. The author meticulously considers the concept of the ecosystem of creatures within the dungeon, exploring why they can thrive inside it. The fusion of DnD elements, intricate details, humor, and of course, seemingly delicious cuisine, makes this manga a delightful and engaging read. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised by how the story took a deeper, even darker turn in the middle, yet it never lost its charm as a slice-of-life cooking adventure.

Coming to a touching conclusion, I can confidently say that ...

Mixed Feelings
After reading through it until the end in preparation for the anime adaptation, I can say that this is still recommended
but I have some mixed feelings especially reading around the final climax.

The characters design, personality, and interaction are such a delight everytime I see them not just the main party
but also the other party that interact with each other as well. I saw the first episode as well that I can say I'm optimistic
about the quality from the studio. Marcille's best girl.

The story starts pretty fast introducing the main characters and their goals which I like it already because somestimes
there's some fantasy story ...
