Ever wonder what dragon or basilisk eggs would taste like? That’s pretty much the idea behind Ryōko Kui‘s manga series ‘Dungeon Meshi’ (Delicious in Dungeon) which will be getting a television anime series.
Studio Trigger will be behind the project, which is great news as they were also the ones behind the animated commercial to promote the release of the manga’s eight volume in September of 2019.
‘Dungeon Meshi’ was originally released in February of 2014 in Kadokawa’s Harta magazine and was later licensed by Yen Press.
“What do you get when you cross dungeon adventures and food manga? You get Delicious in Dungeon, where we find our troupe of adventurers on a mission to save their lost team member while figuring out how to survive on the food that the dungeon provides. When young adventurer Laios and his company are attacked and soundly thrashed by a dragon deep in a dungeon, the party loses all its money and provisions. They’re eager to get right back to it, but there’s just one problem: if they set out with no food or coin to speak of, they’re sure to eat it on the way! But Laios comes up with a brilliant idea: “Let’s eat the monsters!” Slimes, basilisks, mimics, and even dragons…none are safe from the appetites of these dungeon-crawling gourmands!”
Along with the announcement, a visual was also revealed.
And as a fan of the original manga, this writer just has the following to say, “About time!”[Source: Anime News Network]
