Why Bell’s Minotaur Fight Is An Excellent Anime Moment

Dungeon Feature

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.

Contrary To The Title (Is It Wrong to Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon), The Girls Seem To Be Doing the Picking

DanMachi Season 3 Review

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?

DanMachi Review Season 2 Episode 12 – The Love of a Goddess


A sickly sweet ending but one that I kind of appreciated. Irina and I discuss the final episode of DanMachi season 2.

DanMachi Review Season 2 Episode 11 – Chasing Hestia


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?

DanMachi Review Season 2 Episode 10 – The Last Hero


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.

DanMachi Review Season 2 Episode 9 – Conviction

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.

DanMachi Review Season 2 Episode 8 – The Killing Stone


I'm just wondering how often Bell either breaks or loses his armour. No offence to Welf, but he really needs to design something a little more sturdy. It would be interesting to see just how many sets of armour Bell has now gone through but he most definitely lost this set yet again.

DanMachi Review Season 2 Episode 7 – Being A Hero Is Not Like The Stories


Episode 7 picks things up a bit after episode 6 did the set up for the new arc. Bell is trying to figure out his role as a hero without dragging his family into the mess, Hermes is just hoping he hasn't made a big mess, and Ishtar is about to make her move.
