Delicious in Dungeon Plot
Yen Press licensed the manga, and it describes the story:
“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!”
Delicious in Dungeon Manga
Kadokawa published the manga’s 12th collected volume in August 2022 after Kui debuted it in Kadokawa’s Harta magazine in February 2014. In September 2021, the 11th book made clear that the series’ conclusion was approaching.
Also, in the years 2016 and 2019, the manga received nominations for the ninth and twelfth Manga Taisho Awards, respectively. The collection topped the list of the top 20 manga for male readers published by Kono Manga ga Sugoi! in 2016.
