Review: Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka
So, out of curiosity, I picked this show up expecting a cookie cutter romcom. Well, was I ever wrong. So, today I'm gonna break down the show DanMachi, or the English way to pronounce it, "Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls In a Dungeon?"
and like the name suggests, it's about dungeon fighting. Sort of. It's like if you had a game that was heavily based on dungeons, like Monster Hunter, and it shows what your Avatar does when you're NOT in a dungeon, or NOT online.
So, like I stated, this show isn't exactly a romcom, but romance plays a role with the main character throughout the story. The story states he likes the girl who saved him at the start, but it's more like he uses her as a role model. The best example I can use is Zero and Megaman, Zero is a prime example of what Mega man WILL become when he practices, and trains. Bell (the main character) is exactly like that, and he uses the girl named Ali as his role model so he keeps on trying to get better.
The show is roughly based around Ancient Civilization extremely roughly, only because they borrow some demi gods names that were actually used in Ancient times. Like Loki, and Hestia.
Now, I don't have too many complains about the show, other than it probably moves way too quickly. He progresses extremely fast in the anime, other than that, the show is really good. It shows the struggle of being poor and how it was like to live when you were poor in older civilizations. Uhh, maybe not the dungeon part. I don't think dungeon diving was a real thing.
Overall, I think it's a great anime to pick up on your free time, it's only 13 episodes, and it's on CrunchyRoll, so there really isn't a reason not to watch it.
