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.

It's a bit more involved than the title seems to imply, but not so much as to stop being a primarily light-hearted read so far. It's actually a fair bit of fun without being mindlessly frivolous.

It is less than perfect, though. In the very begining, she immediately refused the trade, calling it out as a trap. Yet here she is, as a dungeon anyway. And shouldn't she be mentioning this to the proven friends that she has? Just a little "Hey I used to be a person and some creepy dude trapped me here"? She excitedly mentions early on that she's determined to "break the system", but she spends 0 time actually studying the mechanics in an attempt to do so. She's just bumbling around like a helpless child. She's cute and endearing, but she seems to be getting more and more childish as the story goes on.

Edit as of 66:
The supporting cast has grown and oh my has it grown well. I swear one can't go two paragraphs through this story without bumping in to someone interesting. Still fairly light on the plot, but the supporting characters are 100% strong enough to carry well past the point the story would have gotten stale if it only followed Deltas antics and her lack of real growth. Not that she's been stagnant, but that I think she was regressing earlier in the story, and that her "growth" as a person so far has just got her back up to the level she started at.

A breath of fresh air

I love how much fun this story is. The town full of retired S+ adventurers causing minor trouble, the amazingly well fleshed out characters, and the sheer whimsy of this story had me laughing nearly every chapter. I will eagerly await each new chapter!

A classic dungeon story, not so classic anymore. Dungeon stories nowadays have been so overdone that there are only cliches left. Not this one though. Delta is basically a novel about a person/heroine saying I don't want to kill anyone, I want to be their friends. Except this one isn't so cringy. This novel is heartfelt free flowing classic without all the japanese isekai tropes. A must read for everyone.

This is one of my favorite comedies and Delta is amazing. I like the world building and the slow reveal about who and what she is as she tries to be friends with everyone while facing her worst nightmares. With a wide cast of colorful characters (who probably don’t properly give out the nightmare vibe they should; Maestro) I definitely check in regularly to see more of Delta. 5/5 would recommend.

One of my all-time favorite stories

Reviewed at: 1: Smashing Start

I love this story, and would recommend it to everyone. It has well-built story and plot, and some of the most memorable characters I have ever read about. Some small grammar mistakes here or there, but these are barely noticable and didn't detract from my enjoyment one bit. A must-read for everyone, in my humble opinion. I started reading and finished it in under a day! I just couldn't put it down.

The fact we're given actual maps is the cherr- er, mushroom on top.

Delta needs many hugs and more mushroom friends!

This novel is fun without being totally inane, funny without forcing itself, and just a little bit poigant to cleanse the palate and give the plot a bit of weight.

Popcorn Entertainment With Some Actual Calories

Reviewed at: 104: Spring of the Soul

It's like a dungeon-builder isekai got combined with Discworld. It's nonsensical without ever dropping the suspension of disbelief.

It's got a massive cast, but actually takes the time to develop its characters. It has a small setting, but makes you feel like the world around it actually works.

I particularly like how it manages to keep the running jokes from getting old. You see them coming, and you know how they work, but you never really see the punchline until it hits you.

I binge read it once, but I'll probably reread it again soon. I don't usually do that with webnovels, but this one is worth it.

One of the better Dungeon stories out there

Reviewed at: 101: How to be a Dungeon

I can honestly say that this is one of the better Dungeon stories out there. 
Very good world-building with just some slight flaws in terms of the "Characters know a lot more than what the reader gets to know until the story calls for it" type of writing style a lot of authors go for to progress stories.
To me, it`s a bit of a negative, but the rest of the story covers it easy enough to not make an issue out of it.
All in all this story is great, and a must-read.

It is a fun read and things are looking like they are heating up. Can't say I agree with the total pacifism the MC has going - leading me to roll my eyes more than once - but it is different. In a saturated genre filled with too much of the same, Puns manages to bring some fresh ideas to the bunch.

Heartwarming yet engaging with a good plot

Reviewed at: 105: Delta's Day Off

This is a light hearted read, but at the same time has a rather deep plot that keeps moving forward. Some laughs, some smiles, a couple cries. Give it a shot you'll be surprised...
