She became a dungeon core.

Everything pointed Delta to murdering her way to success. People were just mana farms, right?

No, that was wrong. Delta refused. Then everything became odd.

This story is an experience like no other. It may come of as a bit odd at times, but it has a certain kind of charm to it.

This is no ordinary dungeon story, it has a world outside the dungeon. The mc also goes for befriending rather than murderising. This is done very well, and I sometimes find myself shedding tears of happiness.

To the writer, I say thank you for a wonderful story and a great adventure.

Did basic review, but this deserves ALL THE STARS

This story is a ray of sunshine. It is the most heartwarming and funny slice-of-life dungeon novel, but is in no way sickly sweet.

Every chapter feels me with anticipation, and then joy as I read through it. I can't count how many times I have caught myself smiling widely while reading, and there aren't even that many chapters!

Give it a read, finding this was an amazing moment for me.

The characters develop and the story itself is interesting and full of characters and details, while of course PUNS AND MUSHROOMS ARE AMAZING! (and I read that in my imagined Deo's voice...)

  • Overall Score

Great, but needs fewer interludes.

The author knows what they're doing, and they're doing it well.  Second dungeon core fic I found, after the Worm crossover one, and I could only be happier with it if they'd used monster types I like instead of those I dislike, and had fewer interludes.  Seriously, there are *so many* interludes.  Please just stick with the dungeon's perspective for more of the time!  But yes.  It doesn't use that ridiculous 'mana in the thousands' stuff that so many others do, which is nice, and it takes the idea of someone reincarnated into a dungeon core realistically (as far as 'the average person would *not* be okay with just killing tons of people).  Well done.

Also yay, maps!

Very cutely written. Surprisingly, one of the few female characters I didn't find very annoying.

This story never fails to make me feel good. Most stories hinge on conflict and drama. Puns meanders through a field of whimsy and charming irony.

I could write a lot, but I am not being paid nor am I being graded, so allow me to be succinct. 
If not for the almost weird/ maddeningly out of place, jarring sentence errors I would give this perfect scores, not because it is truly perfect, but because of its cohesive narrative stuff. 
Characters have unique voice, motivation, depth, and emotional complexity. 
Setting has a great amount of depth, juxtaposition, scope, and weight. 
Story has meaningful progress, tension, emotional investment, and cohesion. 
Excellent work. My only criticism is edit/proofread your work better. 
My highest regards

You want go retired to that village too

Since map already mentioned on one of the review, I won't mention it too in here. Rather on how a build in murder-machine, dungeon want to be good to people. Not a story of a good guy getting their praise, but good intention view as imposible and people just wait you to slip into bad side. In a way, just like a Man of Steel movie. Just no brooding and more positive outlook, without pretend to blind with dark side.

A fantastic story! Great humor and well developed characters. Made me feel sad (temporarily) for a mushroom man :)

If you like dungeons, and a bit of glee..READ THIS

please Please PLEASE write the heck out of this. Dont end it fast, dont make it about other stuff stay true to the dungeon, and dont stop writing it. There are so few stories about dungeon building and so far this is great...its AMAZING!

  • Overall Score

A punny lighthearted dungeon story!~

I quite enjoy this story, it is a bit annoying to see how Delta our main character tries to resolve everything peacefully and that the world is overly whimsical? Depending on the situation that can be a good thing but when it is overly whimsical too often and it is not pulled off right it could end up hurting the story later as events in the story progress.

For anyone that likes puns, this is worth the read. If you want an MC that seeks conflict than look elsewhere there is little due to the aforementioned pacifistic nature of the main character.
