Summary for DanMachi

Life in the city of Orario is never boring, especially for Bell Cranel, a naïve young man who hopes to become the country's greatest adventurer. After a chance meeting with the goddess Hestia, his dreams come a step closer to reality. With her encouragement, Bell embarks on a fantastical quest in the city's monster-filled catacombs known as "Dungeons." Death lurks around every corner in the cavernous depths of this terrifying labyrinth.

Even on the surface, survival is a hard-earned privilege. In fact, in a world where gods and humans live and work together, nothing is certain, especially when they often have trouble getting along. One thing is certain, however: many mistakes, triumphs and friendships await the fearlessly optimistic protagonist of this Herculean tale.
