Kodoani.com – While most recent fantasy anime series with ridiculously long titles are isekai, they’re not the only ones with these weird monikers. Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls In a Dungeon?, also known simply as DanMachi, is one of the funniest-sounding anime ever. With numerous spin-offs and adaptations in different mediums, perusing the franchise can feel like being in the dungeon itself.
Thankfully, those who don’t have the strength to go to dangerous dungeons are lucky, as books and anime are a lot easier. Best of all, there’s so much more to it, so now’s the best time to discover why fans love DanMachi.
The story of Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls In a Dungeon??
The world of anime begins with a city called Orario, which is inhabited by countless gods and goddesses. These strong men sought to limit their power somewhat to test themselves by living among mortals. Life in Orario was especially difficult for these commoners, though they made their days easier by committing to some gods. Hestia Familia’s sole patron is the protagonist Bell Cranel, who aspires to be an adept adventurer.
Unfortunately for Bell, such an adventurer’s life is indeed hard and deadly, with anyone venturing into the cave “Dungeon” risking their lives for fortune and glory. Despite this, Bell kept walking, inspired by his lover, a female swordsman named Ais. Thankfully, he has quite a few lovely girls who want to be by his side during his quest – including the goddess Hestia herself.
