I have a feeling that I'll be disappointed at the combat animation though

I am VERY excited for this. I love the manga and I hear that the LN is doing really well too

Tate no Yuusha is nice but honestly it's quite overrated imo.

Overrated? No. Popular? Yes. Honestly, I've yet to see anyone going around shouting it's a masterpiece on the Internet. It just happens to be pretty good for what it's aiming to be. Not that everyone should have same opinions though, dislike =/= overrated.

Oh great, another adaptation of a shitty otaku wish-fulfillment fantasy RPG LN.


Otaku wish-fullfillment ? I barely saw anything like that from the first 3 volumes i've read.

We need even more anime adaptations from this kind of LN/manga. Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari, I'm looking at you.


Why is dungeon ni deai getting animated before something better yet have more material to cover, such as tate no yuusha?! Why is it on 'Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! but not tate no yuusha?
I thought tate no yuusha got more sales?
Unfair! I want to see shieldbro!

P.S: Don't mistaken, I don't dislike this series.

I'm really interested about how the world will look like in the anime. I've been reading the LN, so not so many pictures D:

Yoshitsugu getting main lead in light novel adaptations seems to be the trend lol...not that I'm complaining

Dat name.

Couldn't the author think of anything shorter? lol

I did read a bit of the LN, not my kind of thing. I did expect an anime adaption though.

THIS ^ Also Re:Monster. Glad to see this get animated.


Mushoku Tensei and Re:Monster would make for extremely crappy anime adaptions, they're just too detailed and mature to be made into a visual format. The manga adaptions are proof enough.
Well,that's true, but they dont have to follow the manga's example right?,since LN is the source material,and sometimes LN to anime adaptions are better than their manga counterparts.

I still think it depends on the direction they'll take and how they adapt them:Budget/number of episodes/seasons...which scenes they'll skip/butcher/censor and so on.Like you said it is hard to make them into visual format with them being detailed and the story just flowing better in it's original form but there is a possibility of a decent adaption without it being "extremely crappy" but at least just OK.

My bad, confused the two. I even completely forgot that this one was existing. ^^"

good. Usually gagaga bunko doesn't really focus on ecchi stories even with harem, but wanted to be sure since some people in the thread were saying the opposite.

DanMachi is published under GA Bunko (SOFTBANK Creative), not under Gagaga Bunko (Shogakukan).

So in the end, I know this is a harem, but is the Danmachi LN really ecchi or not? And if yes, to which degree is it ecchi?
No ecchi. The close thing you'll get is that colored illustration in vol5 of the girls taking a bath in the dungeons but other than that, none. Not even Hestia, known to be an oppai loli amongst the Gods, is used in an ecchi way in the story.

Well, Rokka's manga adaptation is bad as well, if you go that way.

So in the end, I know this is a harem, but is the Danmachi LN really ecchi or not? And if yes, to which degree is it ecchi?

Also, just noticed, but the "deai" was actualy translated "picking girls" in english? The correct translation would be more "Is it wrong to wish for a chance encounter in a dungeon?" ; "picking girl" makes the general impression of the title quite different imo.
Yen press did a weird choice here...
