Delicious in Dungeon - Hot Pot/Tart

Featuring strong Dungeons & Dragons vibes, Delicious in Dungeon is an odd idea of giving us the adventures of a party that focuses at least as much on their travels through a dungeon as the various meals they make out of the creatures they kill. There are plenty of in-jokes for fans of D&D sprinkled throughout the first episode which introduces us to the remnants of a party that returns to a dungeon to rescue one of their members who is slowly being digested in the belly of a Red Dragon. Although unusual, it works.

The characters really feel like players in a game of D&D, although the show doesn't go as far as to break the fourth wall. The mage Marcille (Emily Rudd) got a little on my nerves already only one episode in. Although she saves herself, Laios (Damien C. Haas), and Chilchuck (Casey Mongillo) in the opening scene she spends most of the rest of the episode complaining about pretty much everything. The comradery found between Laios and the odd dwarf Senshi (SungWon Cho) who shares his interest in eating animals is quite amusing. It's Senshi who provides the recopies for the party's unorthodox meals within the dungeon.
