Delicious in Dungeon Official Synopsis
When young adventurer Laios and his company are attacked and soundly thrashed by a dragon deep in a dungeon, the party loses all its money and provisions…and a member!
They’re eager to go back and save her, but there is just one problem: If they set out with no food or coin to speak of, they’re sure to starve on the way!
But Laios comes up with a brilliant idea: “Let’s eat the monsters!”
Slimes, basilisks, and even dragons…none are safe from the appetites of these dungeon-crawling gourmands!
This is such a fantastic take on a Dungeon Crawler anime series since it highlights the horrific monsters that are likely used as a source of food in a fantasy world. This will be a great anime to dive into as it addresses a mix of lore with food quirks much like releases such as Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill. The reactions of the characters as they must survive by consuming nasty looking creatures is a great story that will be entertaining to explore, plus will be interesting to find out what kind of action it has in store for viewers.
Delicious in Dungeon will be released worldwide during January 2024, via Netflix. The new anime series page is currently available on the streaming service to active a reminder for the upcoming premiere.
