So recently i started reading this manga Dungeon Meshi. I fucking love it.
So there’s this group of adventures exploring a dungeon RPG style, you know like go into the dungeon defeat the evil sorcerer kinda stuff. They get pretty deep in it and they run into a dragon.
They could totally take it down except there was one problem…they ran out of food and were way too hungry to take it on. So…
They got their asses handed to them. Their mage is casting their “get the hell out of there” spell but the main characters sister get eaten by the dragon. When he realizes what happen he wants to go back down on a rescue mission, if they can get there before the dragon finishes digesting her they can fix her up good as new. BUT there are problems, the biggest one is
they broke yo. They dropped most of their loot when they were dying. They got no money to buy supplies, no money to replace the members that left, and not a lot of time to fix that problem. So our three brave adventurers decide to go in on their own with nothing but what they managed to have equipped. But how do they solve the food problem?
YEP! THE MC TELLS THEM THEY ARE GONNA EAT MONSTERS! But none of them have actually cooked or eaten monsters before. So the MC is about to cook a giant scorpion when this dude shows up
Meet Senshi, he has spent a decade in the mid part of the dungeon cooking and eating monsters. He gets interested when he finally meets some people who also want to eat monsters and decides to show them how to cook.
He knows his shit. So in case you haven’t figured it out…
This is a cooking manga.
AND THUS THESE FOUR BRAVE AND HUNGRY ADVENTURES BEGIN THEIR MISSION TO DEFEAT THE DRAGON AND SAVE THE MC’S SISTER!
…I just love the idea about it. It was a one shot that became a series. Give it a read if you want.
