creative and interesting

I really enjoyed, please keep the good work.

  • Overall Score

The concept is amazing, the story progression is nice,  the characters are likable, no fatal grammar issues,  makes one forget about the time while reading.


The way the author admits where he gets the ideas about the dungeon and monsters makes one feel excited instead of getting irritated by it. It can easily make you wonder what would happen next and how would the author fit the idea into the story.


A must read for Danmachi or Ore Dungeon fans!

damn...didn't expected to be so good

i tried so read lair and the other stories you mention in the discription but i didn't like the quality(my opinion, not saying that they aren't good) and i got bored and loked and the top and wandered thats that story doing there, after i read the discription didn't expected much just that there had to be a reason for it to be in the top right? so now....there are 26 chapters updated and can't wait for more...really good story keep it going and don't abandon it pls

I really enjoyed the story so far and had a lot of fun reading it all at once over night. I eagerly await more updates.

  • Overall Score

Read until the very last chapter, and I love it

I have read it to very last chapter and I love it, the concept of making dungeons is unique the blending of the various concepts that make a dungeon.


Well the down side is the the seemingly aimless development of the beginning of the story wich makes it seem boring but I am glad I haven't drop this 

  • Overall Score

This has a lot of potential! With a bit of polishing this will easily reach the top rated!

  • Overall Score

The progress pace is satisfactory and the way the characters go about their business is great! The way it was written is quite  immersive that it is very entertaining. :)

Feels like an aimless story

Well, I read until chapter 6 in hope that style and/or storyline will improve. But neither did, in my opinion. There are just so many flaws that keep permanently nagging in the back of my head. I cannot cope with the story anymore.


It is not a big deal that the concept isn't original at all and grabs ideas from several other writers. The grammar is not great but it is still readable and you can fill in wrong or missing words easy enough. 

But I have to mention some of the things that kept annoying me to no end and could easily be improved.


1. There is no purpose to the story no real goal for the characters. It's like, "Hey, why are you writing this story?" "Ah well, because... Now I know! Because I can!"

The backround story makes absolutly no sense. Why should a big group study dungeons for more than 20 years? For greed, a higher purpose, religion, insanity? Just to create a spell, to be a dungeon themself? WTF!

2. What's up with the freaking POV's? It totally messes up story flow and character feeling. Why using POVs to such extent for every minor character? I don't get the concept, don't like it anyway. It just adds up to all the illogical behaviour of the people involved.

3. The characters.... Can they get a personality? Names? It feels erratic and it is impossible to get emotionaly involved.


That is another story where I don't get why it is currently in the Top 5 on RR...

I don't understand how this made it into the top 5

I won’t bullshit anyone but i did not even made it past the first chapter.


Every line i read has at least one grammar error or the sentence structure does not make sense.

It’s like the author doesn’t know how to write proper English.


I can’t say anything about the creativity of the story because i never made it far but when you are “WRITING” a story, at least pay attention to the words. If you won’t, please consider making a manga instead because its rediculous.
