After getting his sister devoured by a dragon and losing all their supplies in a failed dungeon raid, Ratos and his party are determined to save his sister before she gets digested. Completely broke and having to resort to eating monsters as food, they meet a dwarf who introduces them to the world of dungeon meshi—delicious cuisines made from ingredients such as the flesh of giant bats, walking mushroom, or even screaming mandrakes.

I came into Dungeon Meshi with no expectations and no prior knowledge of what it was about or how good it might be. I was looking for a new manga to read and I tend to like stories involving dungeons in general so I clicked on it and tried it out. Overall, I'm very glad that I did.

Dungeon Meshi is not a groundbreaking, exciting manga full of action and twists. Instead it is an extremely solid story with a simple premise. At first I thought that the focus was too much on food and too little on the great fantasy world imagined by this read more

The life of an adventurer is quite rough, tough mobs, deadly traps and most importantly not starving to death and dealing with the prospect of eating your fellow adventurers. Lauis was forced into the predictament after a raid to the Red Dragon led to his sister being eaten alive and left inside the belly of the beast and they only have an entire month to save her. But since they don't have much in the way of gold, the adventurers are forced to dine on the mobs they have slain. An unappetizing option for his companions, thankfully they stumble across the dwarf Senshi, the reliable read more

"Dungeon Meshi" is honestly a real hidden gem.

It's set in an MMORPG kind of world that incorporates a lot of Tolkein-esque lore but the main attraction is the vast amount of incredibly creative cuisine that the characters manage to cook up. If you've ever read "Toriko" by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi then this is super classy Toriko.

While the main content of the series revolves around the MC group eating the monsters they defeat, there is no doubt that there is a darker, more serious plot a lurking. However, the story pacing can seem a bit slow and a bit meandering but each chapter serves a purpose--it's a read more

As much as it pains me to say so, this work is mediocre – enjoyable while you are reading it, but not gripping enough. The characters are nice, the art is the reason I don’t have the heart to give this manga a 5, I liked the mangaka’s other works, but during all my time with this series I was unsure, whether I want to read on or prefer to drop it for good.

The problem is that the core idea is weak. I don’t see comedic potential in the concept of heroes eating monsters. So what? Most of us have done so in video games, read more
