Bell Cranel is just trying to find his way in the world. Of course, in his case, the "world" is an enormous dungeon filled with monsters below a city run by gods and goddesses with way too much time on their hands. He's got big dreams but not much more when a roll on the random encounter die brings him face-to-face with the girl of his dreams - but what's an amateur adventurer got to offer a brilliant swordswoman? And what if the lonely goddess who sponsors his solo adventuring gets jealous?

A fairly average fantasy adventure story with an interesting setting   
Rating: N/A

The subject basically says it all. The art is well done, the story is familiar in a comfortable way but its more workmanlike than good, standard for a genre piece really. The setting itself is interesting, with a novel way to justify the introduction of "mechanics" reminiscent of crpg's. An enjoyable read that probably isnt going to change your world.

I will say though, considering how relatively light it is it strikes me as odd that a number of the comments cant seem to follow the basic story. Or perhaps they read a different manga? Perhaps the comment directly below best represents this. Not to take it apart sentence by sentence but all its main points seem to be about a different manga e.g. complaining that the protagonist is indecisive when his entire "thing" is that he derives his power from his drive, complaining about the "main antagonist" when the story doesnt have one, then complaining she will fall in love with the protagonist, when from literally her first appearance we know her only interest in the protagonist is because of her "love" for him, or my personal favourite, complaining about providing someone with a new weapon in the middle of battle AFTER their weapon breaks and they're left unarmed. Perhaps we would be better off reading the "more mature" Re:Monster which is wall to wall rape fantasy.

Incredibly bad character

After reading 30 chapter of this manga, I can only say to don't have any expectations from it or its anime. It falls completely flat with very few redeeming features.

The main protagonist is your run-of-the-mill harem protagonist, with a very frustrating personality, the indecisive saintly type . In the very beginning he is saved by a girl and got a crush on her, for that he gained an overpower ability. And after that he got many girls to fall for him for no reason of all the cliche scenarios.

The main heroin/goddess is the "gambaru"/jealous type of character, very generic and stupidly portrayed.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
(2 chapter to give a freaking dagger while being attacked? gosh and i read it in 3 min, if i had to read it monthly i would had quit this manga earlier).

The supposed main opposition is bad, to be even worse then a villain from a Disney movie. No reason behind it, badly portrayed, no reason to like or even try to understand her (and most likely from the flow of this manga she will fall for the main hero and he will "save her" saying some stupid thing after try to kill or kidnap someone, but that is just my speculation).

The pace of the manga is all over the place, in the fights they prolong it for no reason of end it in 2 panels. It has to many cliche dialog and scenes, none really well placed or played. They overstretch some part of the plot trying to many more meaningful but just I got just annoyed. Also they blow a whole chapter for fan service on a monthly manga?

Overall, in my opinion, this is in no way or form a seinen manga, it is a shonen one, with an immature protagonist that doesn't mature, no deep plot and doesn't have any mature theme.

If you want and RPGish manga try Re:Monster, it has a more seinen feeling to it.

"Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?" But... When will he even "TRY" exactly...?   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0

Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatte Iru Darou ka is clearly quite a mouthful to say, but if there's one thing that bothers me, it's that the title's somewhat of a lie. Our ultimate shota protagonist Bell-kun carries the very generic personality of "an innocent guy with a big heart," and as he has a crush on this one, very strong female adventurer, he's (as usual) unable to see eye-to-eye with all the other girls that've fallen for him, almost each and every one of them practically ready to carry his offspring at a moments notice. So basically, the series is following the usual bullcrap seen in a lot of harem manga. I don't have an issue with every harem series out there, but it's kinda annoying to see Bell, once again, not even TRY to "pick up girls in the dungeon." He always gets flustered + indecisive when the ladies make their advances on him, and even when he awakens to find himself alone with his crush (who saved his ass a second time), he runs off again out of shear embarrassment. So in terms of the series's (incredibly one-sided) romance, it gets somewhat annoying after a while.

The series offers some other elements as well, including action and fantasy world-building, yet not even those parts are very well defined. The action comes off as pretty minimal, with not a huge focus on the fight scenes presented. Maybe with one monster so far they prolonged the fight over a couple chapters, but most of the time, the fights are wrapped up as quickly as possible, with one-shot moves from our thief/rogue/assassin protagonist + adventurer/knight/paladin-thing heroine. I can understand that the artist (probably) has a stronger background in illustrating rom-com harem stories compared to action-based stories, so I don't "expect it" to have the artistic quality of fantasy series like Berserk and Gate - Jietai Kare no Chi nite, Kaku Tatakeri. However, when it comes to fighting being an incredibly important element to Dungeon's core story, it's kind of lacking in quality so say the least...

The fantasy world-building is directed at readers with a background in playing/knowing the different elements of fantasy RPGs. Characters essentially leveling up and having corresponding numbers to their various stats, using grimoires(?) to learn magic spells without having to really read them at all, potions for healing, etc. etc. The idea's not too bad, but the world-building is very slow, with all attention directed at Bell-kun interacting with the individual female characters.

Oh, and so far, there isn't much of a plot presented. Bell wants to become stronger, and so thanks to the magical powers of a middle school crush (no joke, his crush on a girl is enabling him to level up so much faster than any other character), we follow his journey to become strong enough to impress his crush. As he (barely) works hard to become much stronger, he never considers to try and "man up a bit" during this time, thus leading to his embarrassment and indecisiveness with the ladies at every turn. Not much else can be said for specific events throughout the story, as they either make Bell stronger or introduce another girl to his harem, and as rennov stated, they'll fall for him based off the simplest of triggers.

I would even bother to argue that Bell's somewhat selfish, as he understands that he's the only member to his Loli-Goddess's familia and can die in the dungeon, leaving her all alone without anyone else to rely on. I really thought that he'd try to recruit some other people, working their way up as a small and poor familia on their way to challenging other big shot familias. Maybe the Light Novel does a good job with that, but in this series, Bell never bothers to think about that, and always must focus on becoming stronger for the sake of his crush... If it's gotten annoying for you, how I constantly restate Bell's goal, you now may know how I feel with series beating me over the head with it...

I haven't read this one yet, so if you haven't gotten the chance to try it out either, hopefully we'd both be very content with what it has to offer in its dungeon-based fantasy world: Dungeon Meshi
From what I heard, it's very funny, and creative for what it does with their characters' dungeon adventure(s).

Great manga for those who look for some adventure game type and destined hero who grows very very strong in certain instance and instantly as well then its good. I gave pretty high rating due to my weakness against game type manga.

But overall this is a very fast pace manga that skips the introduction and many backgrounds that go straight to power leveling of the main hero bcause of a girl. Funny and enjoyable to read but adept manga reader might have trouble with the story flow

When I see the comment written by AnimePrince I laughed so hard. He used sarcasm perfectly and hit the nail regarding the manga... maybe I can add a little for the review.

Art: like the others said, it's good
Character: This manga distinguish each character good enough. Each has its trait (and maybe later we will be told each character background story). Yet, the character interaction itself is shallow (for now), we can only relied on the "shounen" plot to see the MC brings other character together to create some issue... So, it's really nothing special.
Plot: this is what AnimePrince really hate about the manga (I guess). The plot is shallow (yeah thanks to his "mystical rare power"), and we are dumped with a harem which is created by simple triggers (bumping in the street and get a lunch, coincidentally have a suitable appearance preference, coincidentally become his administrator n care him so much, etc... etc...). I'm not against a harem, yet this is ridiculously simple... if this manga is only talking about leveling up and creating harem in the process, well, damn this manga...

Conclusion: for a LN adaptation, which usually gives a strong plot, I really expect more than this (That's why I'm a bit dissapointed). But, if this manga only wants to sell the art... I guess it's already succeed....

One of my friends requested that I read this, and my lord, this is one of the most stupid manga i have read in years.
We start off with a weak protaganist in the first chapter. That's fine and all, but "to everyones great surprise", apparently the main character has a RARE MYSTICAL POWER which makes him better than everyone else, gained from being a lovesick teenager. Something about him lusting over this girl so intensely suddenly gets a " get out of being weak free" card. Cool.

Now, even before he really starts to bloom and start surpassing everyone else around him, he already began gathering a large harem. I'm fairly sure approximately 5 girls have confessed their love for him by the 10th chapter, we we all know that the super powerful legendary warrior girl is totally going to fall for this little bundle of joy, so might as well include her.

Now to top it off, not only does he have a super rare ability to get really strong with little effort, he now has recieved a certain something made specifically to grow with him because having a weakness is unacceptable, our protag must have a legendary one of a kind certain something to cover that.

Overall, i highly reccomend this manga if you love uninspired characters, scenarios, and story. Or you just feel like oogling all of the female characters ample breasts, sans the token loli.

And in just one volume too! The premise was cool and the characters were interesting. But man the combination of this being a monthly manga, the chapters being less than 20 pages long (with quite a few pages wasted on unecesarry dialogue filler) and the fact that one entire precious chapter was dedicated to a boring lovey-dovey speech in the middle of a fight for survival turned me off this series fast. The mangaka's already making so few pages for a monthly chapter release and s/he doesn't seem to know how to structure her scripts to effectively utilize the paltry pages s/he is giving to us. That is NOT how you get good readership numbers to ensure your manga continues to run.
I fear this is going to be one of those series that had promise but gets cancelled due to lack of readers.

First thanks to Dragon and Griffin Scans for Translating this manga, this is one of the best I read and I think the artwork are just gorgeous. Concerning the plot the base is nice and the characters story and background is great. This will have a huge success for sure. Now about the genre, it's just perfect mixing action with romance and fantasy was a great choice.

One advice : Give it a try !

i really like this type of manga, but there's something missing in this page, Genre : Action Adventure Fantasy Romance Seinen , they should put ecchi on it biggrin. Well when i read it, it make me want to read it more and more, but i need to wait long for the next chapter, sigh i hope it come weekly. I think it's more to Harem in the future IoI. Hope, with his Passive Skill he can get more advance passive skill, like when he's emotion take full control his body, he's entered Berserk Mode, all stat up 2x or maybe 3x and his sp drained every second. IoI, Then after trained on that from he can control it and Mastered it, Then said "I am in Control" ahahahaha then all his stat up again and sp drained more less every second. oh maybe after that he meet so powerfull enemy and in scene life and death, then he want more power, he want become strong, he don't want to die yet before fullfill he's dream, he will not die here and now. then IoI. He's Awakens new pasif skill GoD ModE[if you ask how in the world he can archive that? i read in manga the god power are sealed or forbidden to use cause the rule right! but how about their blood, even just their blood it have many hidden things, then someday Hestia /kami-sama try making breakfast then she cut her finger and it's a deep cut, then Bell-kun lick it and suck her finger, he drink a God blood without knowing it, the god blood cells multiply and slowly replace his original blood, because God blood dominated human blood and have fast regenerate ability and fast multiply cells ability. as you know God can't use their power on human world cause the rule or it's sealed, but now a Human Bell-kun with God Blood run trough his veins on his body, he can't affected by the rule, even if it selaed, the seal are on God Body not Bell-kun body right? so that's why i come out with imagination Bell-kun awakens God Mode, The God Blood affected all his stat drasticly and enchant his pasif skill, even acquire new skills, God Mode, Demon God Mode and Limit Break GoD END Mode but Berserk Mode, Berserk Mode II {he gain full control of his own body in this mode} he get it cause his own pasif skill based on his emotion],he use all his Sp to enter this GoD mode, ok let's say it like negi springfield become Thundergod Perfect Form or songoku become super saiyan 2. a thunderous aura envelop him IoI. He's now like Force Blader, he can enchant he's dagger with deadly magic, oh that weapon shinning and spark thunder appear and envelop his weapon IoI and all his attack become magical+physical attak. IoI Just Imagination. ok.. after that new arc enemy appear, it's a Demon, he's not using sp or mana he's using dark matter for his magic attack. ok then our hero lose... oh he lose.. but he don't want to lose... and he remember in every human there's a demon reside within their body.. so he tried to go deep on he's consciousness, it's dark so dark deep n his heart, a demon appear.. he's meet a demon reside inside his heart, it's a dark side of himself with same face but with with a demon mark/stigma on his hand,head and back and stomach, he make a pact with his dark side. then he's awaken new pasif skill "DemoN GoD Mode" just like he's GoD mode but this one with dark thunder envelop him and he's magic based on dark matter not mana, then he grow demon tail and demon claw on his hand and foot, all his attack become Physical+Demonia IoI IoI what kind of shit i type here IoI. then Lastly he can mastered and exceed both GoD Mode and DemoN GoD mode and unlock ultimate pasif skill[Ultimate Transform] when facing last boss and meet he's dead end and he's girl on life dead situation to,he's awekens, he's Break His Limit it's called "Limit Break GoD END Mode" in this form he can perform magic+physical+Demonia every Attack, and have ultimate skill. "Dimension Breaker" BOM last Boss died IoI if not died he's sealed within dimension he created by breaking The Space while attack that last enemy. IoI IoI IoI

A mixture between Tower of God's level like progression and world development alongside a RPG like fantasy world dictated by Gods and their chosen familias. A higher emphasis on politics, companionship and history than most other works that add RPG elements into their respective stories. The light novels are enjoyable and share only the shallowest of similarities between the Sword Art Franchise (as a previous reviewer noted), and in so far as the seventh manga chapter is considered it is well adapted in terms of art and story.
