Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? (Japanese: ダンジョンに出会いを求めるのは間違っているだろうか Hepburn: Danjon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darō ka), also known as DanMachi (ダンまち) for short, and with English subtitle Familia Myth, is a Japanese light novel series, written by Fujino Ōmori and illustrated by Suzuhito Yasuda. SB Creative has published nine volumes since January 2013 under their GA Bunko imprint. It has received a spin-off light novel series and three manga adaptations. An anime television series adaptation by J.C.Staff aired from April 4 to June 27, 2015 and an OVA and another anime based on the spin-off series is in production.

Setting

The story takes place in the fictional country of Orario whose main feature place is the Dungeon (ダンジョン Danjon) which contains an assortment of monsters from goblins to dragons. Adventurers visit the dungeon to defeat monsters and take their crystal shards, which are used to craft magic items, among other treasures; however, they can also be exchanged for the world’s currency. The people of Orario join groups called Familia (ファミリア Famiria?), who serve a range of functions from dungeon crawling to crafting items. Each Familia is named after and serves a resident deity. In a fashion similar to role playing games, the adventurers are grouped into levels, increasing their levels and abilities according to their achievements

Plot

The story follows the exploits of Bell Cranel, a 14-year-old solo adventurer under the goddess Hestia. As the only member of the Hestia Familia, he works hard every day in the dungeon to make ends meet while seeking to improve himself. He looks up to Aiz Wallenstein, a famous and powerful swordswoman who once saved his life, and with whom he fell in love. He is unaware that several other girls, deities and mortals alike, also develop affections towards him; most notably Hestia herself, as he also gains allies and improves himself with each new challenge he faces.

Synopsis

maxresdefault

The huge labyrinth city, Orario, is the gateway to the huge underground maze commonly known as the “Dungeon”. Its strange name causes excitement, a place to gain honour, and maybe even a romance with a pretty girl. A place where people hold their breath, hoping to gain all they wish for, a place where a solitary young man meets a little “god”.

“Alright, Bell-kun, follow me! It’s time for the “Familia” initiation rite to happen!”
“Yes! I’m going to get stronger!”

The fated meeting of a boy who wants to become an adventurer, and the failed god who doesn’t even have a single follower.

This boy’s journey as written by the goddess, “Family’s Legend” (Familia’s Myth)
