“Firebolt! Firebolt! Firebolt! Firebolt! Firebolt! Firebolt!”
It goes to say I really enjoyed DanMachi as an anime. With themes of adventuring, stats and supporters it offers a game like feel towards a fantasy like world.
We follow Bell Cranel and his Familia, the Hestia Family as he strives to become something greater than a regular adventurer, A Hero. It was fun to see the interactions between characters where it would result in comedy that would bring a smile to me. This was one end of the spectrum, with the other end being the seriousness of situations when venturing the dangers of death lurking around the corner in the dungeon.
Bell-kun starts out as 1 where he learns the hard way before gathering a bunch of friends in order to form a party and aid him throughout the dungeon. It was great to see the teamwork and care these characters felt for each other. With his relationship with Aiz being a stand out, of not just liking a person, but trying to become more, learning, training and up mostly trying to not let that person down. It is a lesson in its self that Bell-kun has taught through his experience, and that’s why its satisfying to watch him grow to become “Little Rookie” and thereafter.
Ryuu Best Girl!
OP/ED: The OP/ED set the tone for DanMachi with pop-y like tunes and music that got you excited and feeling better, the OP/ED were well suited for the anime.
Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Was it Good?
I thoroughly enjoyed the show, with the characters personalities and the ever-so developing Bell-kun as a character it made the show a delight to watch, that being I didn’t have to think too hard and sat back and enjoyed it. Its one of those shows that I sat there and just smiled, and sometimes that’s all I’m looking for in a good anime.
With a fantasy like world and game like themes within the show, DanMachi does a good job mixing the two together and thus I recommend:
- Sword Art Online
- No Game no Life
- Log Horizon
