If you found yourself captivated by the enchanting world of Frieren then Delicious in Dungeon (Dungeon Meshi) is sure to delight you as well. Both series offer a unique twist on the fantasy genre, blending elements of adventure and camaraderie with a touch of whimsical humor.

In Frieren, we are drawn into a poignant tale of friendship and immortality as we follow Frieren and her companions on their epic journey. In Dungeon Meshi we are invited to embark on a quest of a different kind, as a group of adventurers navigates treacherous dungeons in search of delicious monsters to cook and eat.

Despite their disparate premises, both series share a strong emphasis on character development and interpersonal relationships, making them equally compelling for fans of heartfelt storytelling. While Frieren leans towards a more serious and introspective tone, Delicious in Dungeon takes a lighter approach with its comedic elements and culinary focus. Yet, beneath the humor lies a surprising depth as the series delves into themes of family, loyalty, and the true meaning of heroism.

In essence, both series offer a captivating journey through fantastical worlds filled with adventure, friendship, and the occasional monster meal. So, if you enjoyed one, you're bound to find something to love in the other, and vice versa.

Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill

Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill

Mukouda Tsuyoshi was nothing special in modern Japan, so when he was summoned to a world of swordplay and sorcery, he thought he was ready for the adventure of a lifetime. Too bad the kingdom that summoned him only got him by mistake! Not only was he not one of the three summoned heroes, but his stats were laughable compared to theirs. On top of that, there's something really sketchy about this kingdom... "Ah, these people are the kind to try and use the Hero," he realized, and immediately left to make his own way in this other world. The only thing Mukouda can rely on is his unique skill: the "Online Supermarket," a skill that allows him to buy modern goods in a fantasy world. It's useless for combat, but if he plays his cards right, he could lead a comfortable life, maybe? At least, that's what Mukouda thinks, but it turns out modern food bought with this skill has some absurd effects!

Both are fantasy anime about a group of travellers journeying deeper and deeper underground. Delicious in Dungeon is much more "feel good" and Made in Abyss can be shocking at times, but I think that they're fairly similar and are both worth checking out.

Claptrap Claptrap says...

Surprisingly similar setups with the whole premise of 'the further in you go the harder it can be to turn back', and both are stories that enjoy building the world around them and its ecology. Both also are adventure stories that get into some darker elements as they progress.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

The foundation of alchemy is based on the law of equivalent exchange; you cannot produce something from nothing. As such, alchemy is bound by one taboo - human transmutation. Four years ago two young brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, broke this taboo when they tried to resurrect their dead mother. During the process Al's body disintegrated and Ed lost his leg. In a desperate attempt to prevent his brother from disappearing completely, Ed sacrificed one of his arms so he could affix Al's soul to a suit of armor. When his missing limbs are replaced by auto mail parts, Ed bears the name of the Fullmetal Alchemist - the youngest ever State Alchemist and dog of the military. Now, alongside his brother, Ed uses his status within the military to attempt to find any way that he can return their bodies back to their original state.

They have similar vibes. Dunmeshi will start lighthearted but you'll slowly start to see the more serious and interesting world building that makes them similar. A journey to save/restore the main characters younger sibling.
