DanMachi (or the longer Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) is one of my favourite fantasy anime. Here's why.
Nice guys finish last... unless they are the protagonist in an anime in which case they will probably end up with their own harem. Let's look at the nice protagonist. First published May 2016.
It's easy to criticise shows (even ones you love) and focus in on their missteps, misdeeds, or just things you personally dislike but sometimes it pays to step back and remember all the things you love about an anime. For me, this means taking a moment to appreciate a fight scene that was both a thrilling action moment in an anime and also an amazing character moment from the first season of DanMachi. So why do I think Bell's minotaur fight is an excellent anime moment? Check out the full post.
Just what do the girls in DanMachi see in Bell anyway? And why is it that they seem to be picking him up? Just what is going on in this anime?
Bell is back and as usual running headlong into trouble. That's okay. It's why we love him. So how is season 3 of Is It Wrong To Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?
To say that the second season of DanMachi doesn't quite match the high energy fun of season one would be an understatement. However, we do get some important world building and character introductions so the question is whether that's enough for a season.
A sickly sweet ending but one that I kind of appreciated. Irina and I discuss the final episode of DanMachi season 2.
Weird choices all round with DanMachi launching into another story with only two episodes to go. Hestia puts her foot in her mouth and gets royally shot down by Bell which leads to an interesting turn of events, but is there really time to properly introduce new characters and get any kind of satisfactory resolution here?
The war is on with Freya familia moving in. However, that is almost a side note as Bell stands by Haruhime against overwhelming odds. Irina and I share our thoughts on episode 10 of DanMachi.
Bell and Mikoto really rise to the challenge in front of them this week as the attempt to save Haruhime is on. While others are moving in the background, Bell and Mikoto are currently a two man army taking on the Ishtar familia.
