So i was just scrolling through livechart and came over this. Love the concept and cant wait, but i have a question. Is it worth it to wait untill the anime arrives or is it more worth it to just read the manga right here and now?? I am so hyped for this series and cant wait, but if people say that waiting for the anime and watching it that way is the way to go then im just gonna have to wait. Opinions??

Read the manga, it can't hurt you to try it.

I like that one, but, it doesn't sell better than wotaku bro, it s hard, but otaku world is working all about money, and tensei is a light novel no??

No it's a manga as well


Sorry, but im pretty sure that it s a novel that has a manga, it has a Web Novel too '-'

Well I am looking forward to the Megane-and her Boyfriend, personally the main-MC couple is okay, atleast the guy is, I hate the Fujo, well I do hate Fujos in general, but that won't stop me from enjoying it up as long as the Megane and her Boyfriend is in the show, I hope to they never cut off their role even one bit, they steal the show for me strongly, any day any second.

Oh no, something I didn't like shouldn't get an anime, hypocrisy much?

I mean just to not go and mess up with the other convos, aren't we all hypocritical in a sense? It kinda applies to anything in a medium. just me tho.


Major respects, it's not just about getting or not getting an anime, their is more than it to that, for every anime is made of a bad manga, about dozen good shit are left alone to never be spoken of ever.

Not sure bout why she has to be a fujoshi, but probably the combination with an otaku might make some funny scenarious. Also this manga was ranked nr 1 in Kono manga ga sugoi for females so it should be fine.
Since theyre adapting Nr. 1s from those Kono Sugoi rankings they might as well do Dungeon Meshi, no? :/


If this gets an anime and Dungeon Menshi does not, I will say anime is really gonna be doomed soon if not only later somehow.

About dang time, I knew they wouldn't let this good manga become anime-less
But I thought they would have waited for a little longer for more chapters to be released or else there's a possibility that it has a different ending than the manga.

Oh nice. The manga was pretty nice so it's great to see it's finally getting an adaptation. The cast list is pretty decent as well so this seems like it could work really well.
