First Impressions: DanMachi ダンまち

Good morning~ just finished watching the first ep so decided to write about this instead…


at first when i saw the title, i was already guessing this is gonna be some unique setting but generic harem… And also when i see Dungeon, i was like damn, why use such generic terms for this… So far i still think its gonna be generic, but the setting blows me to my bed, because its like your SAO but it happens for real instead of Virtual Reality. Levels, skills, stats, magic all of them is like a good idea for a game but if you put it into an anime, it seems like the author ran out of ideas for these things so he decided to use the generic terms, but using the story to sugarcoat it. I would say the first ep is ok, but need more eps to decide to drop or continue…



One of the reasons why i watched this is because J.C.Staff is making it, and i have confidence that it will be a good one, since i rarely see J.C.Staff makes generic harems. So far the art i would say its not bad, but could be better, the colors a bit  bland, its like only 60% of their power if i compare this and Golden Time or Rurumo.



One reason why i also love J.C.Staff is because they get decent VAs to voice their animes. But why Matsuoka Yoshitsugu again? I was hoping for Uchiyama Koki or Kaji Yuki for this. But lucky they got Uchida Maaya, Hikasa Yoko, Minase Inori, Hayami Saori, Tomatsu Haruka… so i would say its a not bad list already.


As for music, cant judge at this point, imma wait for ep2 to come to a conclusion.

This is my first impression… will do another one once ep 2 is out next week.

  1. I completely agree with you that the story is quite typical. I felt that it was simply a ripoff of SAO or Log Horizon, and well, I hoped that it would bring something new to the table.

    But it was actually worse. The impetus behind the MC fighting all the monsters is merely because of a crush, a physical attraction to a person he does not know… Not to mention, all the ecchi scenes which I’m not a huge fan of.

    I’m planning to watch a few more episodes and deem whether it is worth watching or not haha probably not though
