Synopsis of Danmachi

Life in the city of Orario is never boring, especially for Bell Cranel, a naive young man who hopes to become the greatest adventurer on earth. After a chance encounter with the goddess, Hestia, her dreams become a little closer to reality. With their support, Bell embarks on a fantastic quest in the monster-filled catacombs of the city, known as the "Dungeon." Death lurks in every corner of the cavernous depths of this terrifying labyrinth.

Even on the surface, survival is an effort-earned privilege. In fact, nothing is certain in a world where gods and humans live and work together, especially when they often struggle to get along. However, one thing is for sure: a number of mistakes, triumphs and friendships await the fearlessly optimistic protagonist of this Herculean tale.
