The premise is simple enough, there is vast ruins that go deep underground with untold treasure, flora and fauna lurking in it's depth. Enter Laios a swordsman with a desire to taste and cook up the monsters that live within. Along with his party Chilchuck a halfling whose expertise is disarming traps and stealth. Maryville an Elven mage who isn't so keen on eating monsters. And finally there is Senshi a dwarf who they meet inside the dungeon and is a bit odd to say the least.
Overall it provides a nice look into the day to day surviving in such a dangerous environment. The food looks tasty and the recipes seem very believable, that at least for myself makes me want to cook. Delicious in Dungeon so far is my favorite new series of 2017 and I highly recommend it.
If you like either, then you'll certainly like this.
The mashup of the two still has me chuckling.
Who knew Slimes were such a versatile ingredient?
The manga itself is basically divided into two distinct parts. The Dungeoneering part where they use various tactics to overcome the myriad monsters along the way and Cooking part where they cook up the monsters they end up defeating, though not necessarily the same monster they killed that day. And in both sections is the interpersonal conversations that sometimes sound not unlike a group around the table of a D&D set or as part of an MMO, minus the technical game talk since its not a game world but are fairly realistic one.
As for the product itself the printing is smooth and the English is very well done, which is unfortunately a hit or miss thing in these official releases. The constructions is sturdy too. You can bang the book up pretty well and it will hold together like a champ.
As a person who has read hundreds of manga I can definitively say this is among my favorites ever.
Unlike many current manga, this series is not about people from Earth trapped in a video game world; this is a real-deal, secondary fantasy world based in large part on tropes from Dungeons & Dragons and its behemoth legacy in popular fantasy, but author Ryoko Kui handles it with a thoughtful sense of subtlety: What was the dungeon built to do? What sort of ecology and economy has developed inside? How does the bizarre world beneath betray the expectations of characters living in the exotic world above? This builds for me a firm verisimilitude – despite the aforementioned D&D influence, this fantasy is devoid of power levels, MP, or other abstractly numbered, affected stylizations too common in other contemporary fantasy adventure manga.
This journey is mixed – as the premise promises – with a healthy dose of humor grown organically from the eccentric characters themselves. None of it seems particularly canned, and the food aspect itself can be quite clever; for instance, how does one eat living armor?
Lastly, the wonders of the underground labyrinth are deliciously detailed on page, while the chapter breaks feature maps, adventuring tools mixed with cooking implements, or amusing vignettes. I’ll mention the characters again here, because the author has a fine handle on comedic facial expressions, which are understandably common when one survives by eating predatory slime and – well, see for yourself!
The main draws for me are the character humor, the clever culinary capers, and the setting, which reveals further mysteries as the series continues in future volumes. (Yes, I’ve read beyond the first volume, and plan to keep doing so!)
Happy travels, and bon appetit!
It's weird cross between a cooking manga and a budding biologist's fan-fic of how the ecosystem of an RPG dungeon would actually work. It works, though. I'm curious what monster they'll eat next. The high point so far was using a room full of traps to do so deep-frying. I look forward to the next volume.
Be advised that the food doesn't look appetising.
It's the cast reacting to the monsters they are catching and eating, which is the focus of the story.
