I chanced upon this from around when the author started writing this story. Checked almost every day for updates, just thought I would get this out there before going into a melt down after finishing the book…


Just a few errors here and there I noticed when trying to reread parts, other then that…great plot, good char development and other important reading stuff. Like the plot twists and other stuff…and that other thing was great. Totally worth reading in my book…in fact I had to fight the web dungeon to get multiple password resets and even got kicked out a few  times just to get this out for ya.


So looking forward to the next series…ill be waiting…just saying…take care of yourself, hope the surgery goes well…

I thought the story was very interesting and unique. Most dungeon story’s I have read have a boring start with the dungeon having no thoughts and relying on instinct. This kinda went in the opposite direction it seemed and I found it very enjoyable. I probably like Hero of Naught better but, this was a great story and I would love to continue reading it. The only problem was that it seemed rushed but at the same time too drawn out. You created the villain and drew out the time he was there and made it that way. Then it it quickly resolved in the end which feels way too rushed. i would have suggested either making him an underling of someone greater or having had him escape to cause trouble for later. I will give you a nice compliment on the slime evolutionary tree as it looks like you put some effort into thinking that out and I will always appreciate that from authors.

man becomes dungeon greatness ensues

''Another hidden gem among the latest releases'' , after reading the chapters that were out (3 at that time) , was my conclusion

The dungeon lord and his fairy are an awesome duet starring in this reincarnation-as-dungeon fiction. After having read similarly themed fiction i can say that this is one of the best casual reads for the genre in rrl. The reasons for that is the fact that unlike other fictions you wont be flooded with info and masses of text trying to show how seriously the dungeon-man has taken its job. Instead you have a happy couple (BOUND BY BONDS OF INNOCENCE AND TRUST) that prefers spawing a slime or two from time to time and play slime football(or soccer whatever floats your boat) while waiting for adventurers.

After proggresing more the story changed showing us all sides involved in this newfound dungeon from royalty and its intrigues to the normal adventurers trying to make a living. Tying all that up together to achieve greatness is where i am focusing my expectations(towers the fiction).

The grammar and text size show that the author considers what hurts the eyes of his readers and what doesn’t although some typos escape here and there. My reading experience (as some1 who is hella triggered by others bad grammar) so far has been great.

All in all a nice fiction for those who don’t mind a casual story that goes in a slow pace(i am giving a hint to the author here *wink* (fastahhhh)) that deserves some love since its been covered up by other ones who (in my hoest opinion) won’t leave up to the hype they had if this fiction continues being updated with the same quality as so far.

Thank you author san for giving me something to look out for in the dead of the night(your chapters are updated 12-3pm where i live XD)

i love this story for so many reasons.

the characters are great and you can not help but love them (or hate them when it's called for)

the story is not your run of the mill i reincarnated lets be OP and kill everything that comes for me dungeon.

instead it's well built and the whole relation between dungeon and adventurer is making sense. 

and it shows so much promise, you'll keep coming back for more because you'll wonder what will happen next.


dear santa I've been a good boy please convince the author to make more.

The first book is great,but

As i wrote the first book is great, with normal stuff like puny little human politics, strong enemys and cute characters,and unnormal stuff like dungeon fairy.But at the start of the second book the mc gets a personality change (at least i think it is one) to the worse: Say good-bye to happy-go-lucky-mc and welcome ..that new guy who is kind of a prick and has  lost many important human emotions and doesnt really react when a group of ------- plans to kill his fairy. Yeah i kind of lost interst at that point so maybe it gets better so if you want to continue reading it,or just like the inhuman mc in the first place enjoy.I just wanted to post a warning for 0815 guys like me who may be disheartened at the sudden change. Overall it is a good story but just not to my prefferences.

  1. I recommend it if you are in dungeon genre because it's on the better type. Many misspelling and plot inadequacy here and there (the story here in RRL is only a draft if I interpret the authors comment right) volumes actually don't align so your choice
  2. Slime monster is nothing new with it's unlimited potential, I find the variety of slime lacking to justify its concept of slime dungeon. 
  3. I understand that the author don't want the dungeon to be OP easily but from being B rank in book 1 till book 3? Really?
  4. I first thought that this novel is "dungeon centric". I thought that the chapters about the town, royalties, adventures, demons, empires is just there for world building. But no, every characters have backstory. 
  5. And that's way I dropping it. I read it for the dungeon. Not for the backstory, not for the depress adventures when one of them died, awkward reunion, hidden family relations, Demonic plots, and Life lesson blacksmith.
  6. If it continues we don't know if the story is still about the dungeon and not about our bullied red head adventure.

This story spreads itself a bit too thin. As characters are added I care less and less about any non-dungeon activity. I wish there was another story without any drama from above ground. As it is it isn't hard to just skip past any paragraph with the bears, Nat or Mary in them.

love this and love the edit

this was probably the first novel I read on rrl. This struck a chord with me and made me love the dungeon genre, but I could never find a novel quite as good as this. For the first few months after you stopped updating I thought you quit but thankfully you did not. Hopefully, you will have quality and fast chapters

This is essentially a mediocore "Divine Dungeon". It's fairly similair ish with sigificantly less depth. This reads like a young adult novel with extra helping of young. While not bad per say... It leaves competent readers wanting a bit. Some inconsistency here and there about certain aspects as well as minor questions. The POV do make the story better and add some world building though.
