"Dungeon cores... roll out!"

After being suddenly teleported to a new world, corner store manager Marianna discovers she's something called a dungeon core. Living life as a corner store manager was one thing, but the manager of a dungeon? And to make things worse, a dungeon core still has to eat?!

Now Marianna must find something to sate her new body's requirements, and hopefully a way back to her world. After all, who's going to manage the store while she's gone?

An interesting dungeon direction

As of chapter 8, this is an interesting story. The characters each have personality and the idea of a dungeon that repudiates her insticts while still needing to eat (unlike
There Is No Epic Loot Here, Only Puns, where there seems to be no cost to being a friendly dungeon) is one that definitely has some untapped potential for exploration. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing where this goes.

Hungry Hungry Dungeon

I do enjoy having a MC that isn't an absolute genius. I like that Mari has to find her own way in this new world, and that she isn't the stereotyped know it all that can somehow make guns with minimal effort (*cough* arifureta *cough*). I also like that Mari is struggling against her morals as a person to sate her dungeon body requirements.

The style is unique for dungeon stories.

The grammar is great as far as I can tell.

The story is interesting, and author san has already set us up for a few different BBEGs, and I like that kind of foreshadowing.

Of course, I love the characters. Mari, again, isn't an idiot but she isnt the smartest person in the world. Without spoiling too much, that means she has to rely on others for help and explanations.

Great job, author san! Im waiting for more!

Light and Fluffy Story

You want a light, easy-going Dungeoncore adventure, easy to read, something to sneak a few chapters of at work? Something witty enough, with a good thread of character running through the antics?

This, my friend, is your story.

Well. What would you expect of a dungeon story that is lighhearted. But different from delta from epic puns this morals have repercusions in a more direct manner. 

Marianne our dungeon works hard on trying. Although not smart she isn't an expert when doing her management job and makes some mistakes. It's part of the story and probably the char growth. 

How will she adapt towards a survival quest in which she will be forced to eat what she morally hates. What will her interesting pet play in the new chapters? Where is the prince that will save her?

What kind of singer ahould ae invite to the valse for the story to dance with?

Grammar: 4 up. Enough and very good to read. 

Style: 5. Nice prose and writing. Also tables and alerts show you messages that inmerse you in the story. 

Character: Around 4 and raising. Because our MC and dungeon is a bit naive ypu could confuse this with idiocy. But it is perfectly normal in the setting. She will grow woth the story and that's something that gives her dimension. 

Story: 4 and rising. I expect this to be growing quick by the author's hand. It has a plot which started simple. I expect since it is an interactive story it can become better by user input and a listening author.

As someone who has only seen japanese translations of the Dungeon genre, i actually quite like it. Mr. Author is quite receptive to feedback and that brings it from a four to a five for me :3

As far ahead as I have read, the story doesn't really diverge from standard dungeon tropes.

There is a slightly unique take on how the dungeon sees or what they even are, but outside of that, everything seems pretty standard, which would net the story 3 stars, but...

The MC is a scatter-brained, easily distracted to the point of it being nearly deadly, idjot that would rather play around than think about basic survival needs.

While that's how the titular Cannibalism comes into play, that's still probably the most lacklustre and disappointing way of it coming to be one could figure out. 

It also takes them a lot of time to figure out the most basic of things, which only cements my opinion here.

Unfortunately, that also kills the story for me. And if the story is to have any actual coherence afterwards, next thing happening should outright kill the MC, for with such an obvious lack of any self-preservation instincts, their luck is sure to run out soon enough. 

 

TL;DR 

Don't expect much from the story, expect a very disappointing MC.

Grammar and style are okay.
