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.

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

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.

  • Overall Score

Best character development I've seen

The story is a fun read, and I advise that you read it.

This is the first dungeon story I've read where the dungeon is not even the focus. The dungeon is just a plot device used for the characters to develop, which I think the best part of the story. Most of the character, even one-off characters are interesting and fun to read. The town near the dungeon really feels like its a town of retired heroes and demon lords that just went there to retire and be forgotten by the world, and the dungeon's presence really shows how the town is coming back to life again.

In conclusion, I like this story and I'm always excited when I see a new chapter is up.

Delicious, punny and wholesome, few errors

You get exactly what it says on the package: A story about a dungeon with a lot of puns. Not that new, if it weren't for the fact that the protagonist is Delta, the dungeon core and we watch as she grows her dungeon, makes friends, foes and shitty puns that are abolutely wonderful.

Despite the simplicity of the concept the world is complex enough to seem realistic, touching topics such as human greed and ignorance even if faced with a miracle.

There is character developement, conflict and resolution, everything a good story needs.

Said characters are very weird and loveable, even the freaky, acid-spitting mushroom monster. All monsters the average reader would normally be repelled by have their own unique quirks that make it a lot easier to fall in love with every single one of them.

The grammar here and there still needs to be fixed, but that is a minor trade off for such a good story.

I rate 4.5/5, not enough shrooms.

  • Overall Score

Most original take on a Dungeon personality

To be fair, I'm giving this story 5 stars, not for it's perfection in each category, but for going beyond expectation in enough of them to make the matter moot.


The best part about this story is how alive it feels. 

Everything from the MC to each introduced side character is filled with personality and background without wandering too far off tangent.

There are a myriad of side characters to be introduced to, each one distinct in personality and filled out with their own thoughts and motivations.

Then there's the humor. Even with the puns, you'll find yourself fighting off laughing in public almost every chapter.


Not sure if it qualifies as a detriment, but there isn't much of a "Plot" to speak of, more of an ongoing Theme or direction which the story hints at occassionally.

This simply means it's closer to a slice-of-life piece than a cut-and-dry OP MC tale of domination and Galaxy conquest, which I prefer to be honest, but I know isn't everyone's cup of mint tea.

The releases have also slowed down from "One chapter a day" to "One chapter every three weeks" which has somewhat dulled the momentum behind it. But then, authors are people too. RL eats their time as much if not more than eerybody else.


So in conclusion, read the story, enjoy it, try not to laugh too loud in public as they'll think you're crazy, but don't be too surprised when you've reached the end faster than expected.

Reviewing up to Ch. 69

I'm really enjoying the character development, the comedy, and the plot. While there's some room for improvement on the grammar and formatting consistency, it reads well.

Boy I’m glad to discover this hidden gem!

Honestly, someone suggested this on Novelupdates Forums with a link and being a bored girl I was, curiousity took over which led me to find this certain hidden gem.

I’m not best with reviews/critiques but I’ll comment for the sake of this unique and very entertaining story. 

This dungeon story is worthy for a reads. For starters, the MC here won’t give you a startling slap on the face from it’s OP-ness. Although she has the typical system thingy and a will to do her wishes on a whim, there’s still a limit for it and a little sense of what’s it like to begin small. I also enjoyed the setting because there’s no such bloody thing called harem/reverse harem that mostly dungeon stories have, instead, I like the hilarious fluffy moments here. The characters are never dull at all; they have their own circumstances, different personalities, and past experiences, definitely not boring to read. MC is a former-human(?)-turned-dungeon-core, I’m not sure about her overall character as the story is ongoing, however, I became a fan after realizing her eccentric jolly behavior. She’s like a one weird good friend we need.

Some stayed for the story development, others stayed for the character-building, few stayed for the plot-twists, and I stayed for the amusement this hidden gem brought. I’m genuinely grateful that stewart92 had published this masterpiece and shared it to everyone. Thank you.
