Yet another season of LN adaptation by really long name most weebs can’t pronounce. Therefore, the series is more known under shortcut Danmachi. It’s even pain to translate, because it sounds weird taken by literal meaning, but I digress. This season has the most interesting themes in the series so far, because it takes an important question what if monsters, we have been indiscriminately killing during those adventures in the dungeon so far were sentient or have potential to be. It’s a step up from building reputation as adventurer, building clan of friends and harem of girls. It’s important to point out the world of Danmachi is not an isekai. It’s game-like fantasy world, where for some reason’s gods live with people and govern things behind the scenes by scheming and using their clan of adventures blessed by ability to level up. Unlike in series, where there are levels like hundred or even thousand, in this series level is much harder to get. You are already way more powerful than lower levels, when you achieve level 5. It’s nice change of pace. What is not really change of pace is the fact, that the series is still just a fighting shounen in fantasy settings with harem. As I said this season picks up theme of sentient monsters, which pose two-fold problem. It makes monster inherently stronger, because they are no longer simple brutes, but importantly poses morale issue, which even threatens established social order controlled by gods. Siding with monsters can also make you instantly social outcast and enemy of the people. There are two connected arcs in this season. One is about one-dimensional evil monster hunters, that hunt sentient monsters for fun of torture. Another arc is about rescuing the group of sentient monsters [1]. Everything with gods, usual suspects, scheming behind the scenes trying to get their desired outcome. But still one can’t help to not perceive everything is mainly happening in order to save another waifu, monster girl, Wiene. The show presumes you watched previous seasons, because it doesn’t bother to reintroduce reoccurring characters. I would recommend watching this, only if you watched and liked previous seasons. I did enjoy this season, but it is far from being some awesome master piece. Spoiler [1] It has nice confrontation of opinions between Bell and Ains. It’s ended by almost DBZ style rematch between Bell and Minotaur.

oh boy here’s danmachi for its bounce back from the really lackluster ending season 2 and wait... does that say mature themes? hmmm well peoples ignore that unless the spiciest thing you watch is Snafu, uzaki, or any other rom com type sol then sure this might be mature. but all joking aside man I was really hoping the story to be better after 2 season of minimal character growth it’s clear that the story is what had to pull viewers back. Well, I’m here to say it depends, if you really love the show then I’m sure I don’t need to convince you to watch this. But for those who are on the fence you need to give it 3 episodes, and if you're tired of bell, you just aren’t feeling it, or maybe you can’t stand the abuse of cliche's in this show then you need to drop it cause it will not get better. otherwise, the show does make some positive strides in certain directions while tripping over itself in others. that’s the hip fire version now let’s focus in on the other stuff and don’t worry it’ll be spoiler free until the very end (with warnings). first the animation looked better this season which kind of surprised me, not much better, but it certainly looked more fluid and eye popping most of the time. but the big thing was no CGI *wow* I know right, I honestly would have given a lower score since shows recently have really blown animation out of the water but unlike other shows that came around the same time, they seem to have improved so thumbs up from me. the sound its good armor clanks, birds chirp, people scream, and the caves echo. and on top of that the OP& EP were enjoyable of course the music taste is my opinion but still they were nice. the characters for a majority of the "side" characters minus the virgin celibate prostitute fox girl all were pretty good she wasn’t bad it’s just that her character felt jipped from the beginning with the whole "redemption" of a girl who is about as pure as the damn virgin Mary. the gods needed more screen time they were relegated to the background that only for very small points looked cool and did great but then feel to the wayside once more. can we get Hestia to act like a god again instead of a big tit loli? but bell is the big problem here he has no growth, at all. the entire show he’s called a fool and to himself he says he needs to make sacrifices but will then say he'll never change his, beliefs, stance, etc. see why it’s frustrating? and throughout the show he utters the same lame trope I have to get stronger but why? strength means nothing becoming strong is simply the hurtle to achieve your goal not the goal itself. but more on that later. the story again no spoilers, I have to say I was compelled for the most part for the first half but after again the same dumb tropes I started losing interest. bell never makes a hard decision and only makes those decisions to help himself feel better not save the lives of others around him. if I say any more it’ll spoil it so I’ll leave it of at this can we stop the whole t/Jesus pose standing in front of someone to symbolize protecting them? it doesn’t look cool anymore and in one scene of this season it looked downright ridiculous. picture without context come back if you remember this alright so to wrap it up, I really expect more from danmachi it’s a show with a slew of gods from different pantheons mostly Greek ones stand out and bell is called the argonaut and holy shit artemis calls him Orion. my point is for a show that leans so heavily on Greek literature they leave out the best part the tragedy, it’s what gives them meaning and make them much more compelling. the end of this season honestly made me more confused on what is the next plain cause right now it has no direction. regardless of how I feel it was still better than the end of last season but if it does get green lit for season 4, I just hope that it actually picks up a damn story line/adventure that remains compelling. this one was bit long so thanks for those who stuck it out its s sequel, so they are usually shorter, anyways I’m curious to hear what other people think, so thanks for the read, and have a good one!

My Overview of Past Seasons to Compare: (No spoilers) When the first anime came out, I watched that thing at least five times, and I never got bored with it. The action and comedy was always on point, and the story held awesome potential. Especially when Hermes talks about some secrets at the very end of the last episode. The second season was decent enough even though they left out some important stuff from the light novels.I was mainly disturbed with the imagery to serious sexual abuse. References is one thing, but no one needs flashes of that. The music and story was still moving forward and moving things along. Even though I thought something like the Apollo arc was something that should have happened later because Hestia's shortcomings are a little too big to just drop at the beginning of a show. *SPOILERS*  For 3rd season. This third season threw out so much potential for the show. Yes, it was already a little odd to see 'demi-humans' fighting monsters, but I liked the reasoning and growing thought that the monsters are starting to affect people or get worse. Maybe even politics would worsen their battle in the dungeons. Who knows? My point is that so much genuinely cool mystery was thrown out for making it now where the monsters are apparently no longer a viable enemy. I would have preferred if the monsters were a mystery or were found out to be humans who were cursed by a set of evil deities. This... is just non-sensical and fairly lazy writing. What exactly is Bell and others supposed to fight for now? What's the significance of fighting the Black Dragon or Wallenstein's justice for what clearly happened in her past with the Black Dragon. Yeah,.... this show went from 10 to 3ish real quick. P.S. I also dropped reading the light novels too because of this "monsters aren't monsters" schtick.
