Synopsis for DanMachi
Life in the city of Orario is never dull, especially for Bell Cranel, a naive young man who hopes to become the greatest adventurer in the land. After a chance encounter with the goddess, Hestia, his dreams become a little closer to reality. With her encouragement, Bell embarks on a fantastical quest in the city’s monster-filled catacombs, known as the “Dungeon”. Death lurks around every corner in the cavernous depths of this terrifying labyrinth.
Even on the surface, survival is a hard-earned privilege. Indeed, nothing is certain in a world where gods and humans live and work together, especially when they often struggle to get along. One thing is for sure, though: A host of mistakes, triumphs, and friendships await the fearlessly optimistic protagonist of this Herculean tale.
