Delicious in Dungeon Manga Comes to an End This Month

Delicious in Dungeon Manga Comes to an End This MonthAll delicious things must come to an end. Delicious in Dungeon (Dungeon Meshi), the long-running dungeon-crawling/food-eating manga by Ryoko Kui, is set to bid farewell in the September 15 issue of Harta.

The manga launched in the same mag back in 2014, and has 12 compiled volumes so far. An anime adaptation from Trigger is on the way to Netflix in January 2024.

Here’s how Yen Press describes the manga:

What do you get when you cross dungeon adventures and food manga? You get Delicious in Dungeon, where we find our troupe of adventurers on a mission to save their lost team member while figuring out how to survive on the food that the dungeon provides. 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. They’re eager to get right back to it, but there’s just one problem: if they set out with no food or coin to speak of, they’re sure to eat it on the way! But Laios comes up with a brilliant idea: “Let’s eat the monsters!” Slimes, basilisks, mimics, and even dragons…none are safe from the appetites of these dungeon-crawling gourmands!
