This is a transition volume in the series as the last book's victory is swept away by misfortune, setting up a new quest to be undertaken by our harried and hungry band of adventurers. Time that should have been spent on a few more monster recipes was given over to fleshing out a previously introduced team of rivals that will apparently play a bigger role during the next few books. This is a decent outing with some amusing bits and a little action, but I hope to see things back on track next vol ...more

If compared side by side with the last volume, the fifth volume is weaker but, the fourth volume had a epic dragon fight to go with the arc conclusion so it had a tremendous advatage. This volume is still funny as ever, although the pace suffers because of the need to introduce two new parties to the story, we still got several memorable lines from it.

4.5 out of 5 stars

YET another great volume in what is fast becoming a favourite series. This one was not as good as the previous volume but there was still a lot to love- some background on the group and the dungeon, the expansion of the story of a second party, Senshi continuing to be the most wholesome and adorable character ever. It was great.

OMG, so much plot! I have no idea what is going on, but this volume of Delicious in the Dungeon features a whole lot of action other than just monster slaying! Falin is back, but not. There's a creepy group of adventurers who look eerily similar to our heroes. Everything is suddenly strange and ominous and I love it :D ...more

I am so bummed that I don't own the next ones because this series is just so much fun to read. More weird food, awesome adventures, and even more mysteries to be had. It's really introducing some new characters in these past two novels that I think will bring some intriguing conflict and or relationships to focus.

The cooking aspects of this one were a teeny bit less impressive than in the past, but the plot just keeps getting better and better and BETTER!

Finally, there is one volume bit weaker. We are watching our fellas get together after Falin rescue and realising, that in the dungeon could be a worse threat than a huge red dragon - the omnipotent wizard - master of the dungeon. So our heroes are in a bit of pickle, out of resources and trying out to solve the puzzled streets of that level. Besides that, there is a huge conversation part did by another group (and then with one more), and this is just a bit boring and bit out of the concept. Bu ...more

Oh yeah and also we meet a dude with a crush (who I don't really like), and meet that other rival team in more detail (they are sketchy as hell), and we meet some dryads (it's deadly and hilarious), and we meet a mad magician (WHO I FEAR AND RESPECT) ((view spoiler)), and nearly starve to death until we eat bricks (gosh, I

Finally all the three teams are together and maybe I won't have as hard of a time remembering who is who. Mysteries continue to build and nothing was really resolved in this volume, but still had some interesting encounters and mysteries. ...more

After some dubious magic usage in the last volume Falin is a live once more and the group is ready to return to the surface to renew and recover from their adventure thus far. Unfortunately that is easier said then done as Falin awakens and sleepily escapes to return to the dragon corpse and the dark skinned elf seen at the end of the last volume (aka the Lunatic Magician. ) The group drops to almost certain doom but they survive with some luck and a little spirit (or rather a few of them) as th ...more

Delicious in Dungeon, Volume 5 by Ryoko Kui continues the aftermath of resurrecting Farin. She's alive and awake and missing! Meanwhile, the remainder of the party are trying to find their way to the surface to regroup.

This volume serves as transition piece. The initial goal has been accomplished. It didn't turn out as planned but it was completed. Now the group has to decide what to do next. Do they go after Farin? Or do they go after some other goal?

Overall still really amusing, with some memorable new monster encounters and some big story beats. I am not very interested in the new team (other than the dog man), but as usual I love spending time main adventurers, and the absurd humor and imagination remains intact. Great stuff for a nerdy guy like me.

Monster cooking manga that delights in the weird and the absurd.

I was terrified this would fall under the category of yet another isekai manga. I was so wrong.

It has all the trappings of an isekai manga - a mysterious dungeon, riches promised to those who can clear it, motley crews that set out complete the dungeon and claim the riches that reside therein.

Our story opens on a 6 strong crew that are fighting the fable red dragon. Disaster strikes when our lead character, swordsman Laos, watches

hmm, the rival group is now apparently more than just cannon fodder for the monsters. And are now set up to be some sort of probably maybe a major antagonistic force. Eh, kind of interested but really I'm here more for the zany adventures, and antics the group gets up to. We had Falin back and now she's gone. And I'm like will I still finish this series, or is it going to become a whole bunch of drama, instead of a foodie dungeon adventure. (okay probably will continue the series.) but since the ...more

They may jump to the wrong conclusions, get in over their heads, and be a little too ambitious, but I’m starting to like Kabru’s party. The real question is will they ever run into Laios’s group when they are among the living? There was another awesome fight scene in this one with a sea serpent—so beautifully drawn! The quest to find Falin or the Lunatic Magician didn’t move much. I guess we were all (readers and adventurers alike) lost in the shifting dungeon. It was a return to lighter materia ...more

With the dragon defeated but Falin missing yet again, the story turns to the broader world once more. We see two other adventuring parties, one set against Laios and the other obviously arranged solely for the rescue of Falin. A sea serpent goes uncooked, but Marcille gets petrified and thereafter turned into pickle weights. Amid various adventures, Laios clearly levels up and learns "lay on hands" in a beautifully narrative manner.

This series continues to be nothing but fun. I look forward to

Man the crew can not catch a break! Just when all seems to finally be going their way Falin gets sucked into the dark elf’s controlling magic and disappears. Meanwhile the team meets up with Shuro, one of their old members and his new team that are also looking to save Falin. All seems to be going well until Laios tells Shuro exactly how they brought Falin back and disagreements quickly arise.

The mystery of the dungeon continues to deepen and who exactly is that Kadru guy??

This volume suffers a bit from where the manga is broken into volumes, I think -- they just found the companion they were searching for, but lose her again at the start, and then spend a good while wandering and lost, and also without having very many fun recipes until almost the end of the volume. It just doesn't feel like the pacing is as good here, although I'm still curious what'll come about next. ...more

This volume of the Delicious in Dungeon series spends a majority of its pages introduction us to another band of adventurers. There are the usual eating monsters and monsters almost eating them moments that have come to be the hallmarks of this series. How about eating dungeon cleaner? It might not taste very good, but it is food!

This is the first volume of the series that feels more like a bridge between arcs than a satisfying book in and of itself - which makes perfect sense, considering how the pieces are coming together. (view spoiler) ...more

The tone of the story is starting to get darker, but it’s still enjoyable and still has the moments of lighthearted comedy and cooking that first caught my interest. I’m excited to see where the story goes from here!
Stephanie Molnar
Lots more characters to keep straight. Good, but not my favorite in the serious. It acted more like a bridge between the first four books and what comes next. Also, there was more "dungeon" and less "delicious". ...more
If anyone has a passing interest in manga at all, I highly recommend this series. It's so much fun and weaves together fantasy storytelling, mystery, and cooking stories together seamlessly. I'm so charmed by it and hope it keeps going for a long time! ...more

Random grab and I enjoyed it a lot. Picked up the characters quickly, the premise of tying the food into the adventure is clever, and the art is really good. Will be going back to the start on this one, too.
