Far from the dungeon beneath Oraria rises a new threat, one the beautiful goddess Artemis has sworn to destroy with the help of her chosen warrior. But this fighter isn't the renowned Ais Wallenstein or another storied hero of Orario legend. Instead the fate of Artemis' quest falls upon the shoulders of Bell Cranell, who must partner with the goddess and stand against the menace lurking in the remains of a distant, ancient city. Although Bell is the ordained champion of Artemis and a member of the goddess Hestia's familia, their adventure will test every skill and take every ounce of courage that Bell has — and perhaps, along the way, turn him into the hero he has always aspired to be.

The tricky Hermes organised a competition during a festival where the person who pulls a sword from a block of crystals wins the blessings from a goddess along with a trip around the world. Bell wins the competition and gets introduced to the mysterious goddess Artemis but that's also where all the fun and games stop. The animations and the cast are amazing as always but I do feel that the movie struggles to show how serious the situation is that our heroes find themselves in. Some of it is due to the runtime of the movie where the story feels rushed to make it all fit and some of it is due to the way that some of the cast members don't really want to share what kind of trouble our heroes find themselves in. The scenes between Bell, Hestia and Artemis are pretty magical with a great display of emotions and powerful expressions. The movie also has some excellent tunes.
Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka: Orion no Ya Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon ?: Arrow of the Orion As far as I could learn, this film is actually Non Canon, but it is the plot of the original writer. So you could at least pass it as an Anime Only Canon. Danmachi X Alien the scary creature from an alien world The film is roughly on par with the first season. For the time being, it offers the viewer a happy atmosphere, which later darkens in terms of the plot. The course of the film is pretty monotonous and almost nothing happens, except for a very small twist towards the end. I was more interested in the fact that the monster in the movie was a Xenomorph queen with her brood. I can already see what was pretty clearly based on here. The shape of the nest, the eggs, the way they hatch and the representation of their "perfection and evolution". Characters With the characters, there was hardly anything worth mentioning in the film that could stand out from the series. You only saw something of Bell's heroic quality and his expectations of himself.The film protagonist was just average and didn't really have any more personality or depth. Story In terms of the plot, the film had almost nothing baked.As it was said at the beginning, this was just a slightly upgraded monster hunt quest in movie format. With minimal action. Animation / pictures In general, nothing stood out, the animations are the same for seasons 1 and 2. Except that there was even less action. Conclusion It's hard to see this as a movie, 2-3 ova parts would have done better than that. You can look at it, but as expected, it is not exactly ready for the stage, let alone significant in terms of content.
All things said, its a lovely Greek Mythology adaptation with RPG surprise :)Considering how hard its to adapt that kind of story, I will give an overall 8Picking the review from Gozza, here is what I think: I think the animations and cast were fantastic 10/10 for both (by cast I consider which ones were selected to be part of this movie). The development of the characters were good too, even for who didn't watch the anime before and is not familiarized with them, it may inspire a great deal of curiosity for the franchise. I also do do feel (just like Gozza) that the movie struggles to show how serious the situation is that our heroes find themselves in. But the reason why, in my opinion, the Level of danger perceived by the audience is directly connected to how much the audience is aware of what is at stake for all the characters (not just the MC), how much could be lost or gain and in how long (the feeling of emergency/crises). In other to sell that feeling to the audience it requires a few things and time it’s not one of them, but how well managed is the time you have (script, time distribution, characters with few lines but deep content, etc) - otherwise we could only have good movies if they were longer than 3 hours. Even considering that scripts adaptations with Greek mythology are not a easy task, I don’t believe time was the issue, but how long with was spent with unnecessary events (the long travel for example).
