Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

Bell Cranel is just trying to find his way in the world. Of course, in his case, the “world” is an enormous dungeon filled with monsters, below a city run by gods and goddesses who have way too much time on their hands. He’s got big dreams but not much more when a roll on the random encounter table brings him face-to-face with the girl of his dreams – but what’s a beginning adventurer have to offer a brilliant swordswoman? And what if the lonely goddess who sponsors his solo adventuring gets jealous…?!

Insidious Mist reviews: IMPORTANT: This is a little pointer are the same Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Harem, Romance,Seinen Summary: The huge labyrinth city, Orario, is the gateway to the huge underground maze commonly known as the “Dungeon”. Its strange name causes excitement, a place to gain honor, and maybe even a romance with a pretty girl. A place where people hold their breath, hoping to gain all they wish for, a place where a solitary young man meets a little "god"."Alright, Bell-kun, follow me! It's time for the "Familiar" initiation rite to happen!""Yes! I'm going to get stronger!"The fated meeting of a boy who wants to become an adventurer, and the failed god who doesn't even have a single follower.This boy's journey as written by the goddess, "Family's Legend" (Familiar's Myth) My Summary: Ever since the breakthrough anime Sword art Online many manga, light nowels and anime have tried to capture the idea of the same concept, but of course with their own spinoff and variations, (e.g. Log horizon, Real account Log horizon...) Enter the new contender   Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatte Iru Darou ka Gaiden Bell is the main character of this manga, but unlike many of the characters he actually starts of crap, like literally he is baad. So Oomori Fujino (author) gets my attention due to being unique to the character at first. Bell is a person  who is caring, sacraficial and determined. I will have to say before i can continue this is more harem than SAO or anyothers i've seen. In this world 'Gods' chooses servants or people to serve them and join their pact, kinda like a guild. Each 'guild; (im going to use this term from now on) all have a theme or genre based on their leader(god). Bell begins in the manga already in a 'guild' by a 'God' named Hestia. But his guild only contains two people Bell and Hestia. As they are a small guild they go through tough times for money and sustaining them selves as Bell is the only fighter to go to the dungeon. As he journeys on he meets more people specifically girls who soon develops feelings for him as how harem gos.  The manga starts of Bell being saved by a girl who reminds me idk why of Asuna (SAO) and Esdeath (Akame ga kill) who goes by the name of Alzu Wallenstein. Who he admires and possibly loves her, but hates himself being saved by her. Which he 'awakens' without spoiling too much. She herself begins to notice him through his actions and slowly develops feelings for him (imo), which puts this manga in an interesting position.  So overall 9/10 will not fit everyone, but i like it, cause im a sucker for these types Keep being mysterious...

This series was popular, right? I feel like it was popular. But the fact that it was cancelled and that the final chapter just comes to an abrupt non-ending makes me question its popularity. But then again, if it wasn't popular, why would there be a sequel series currently being published? But the sequel series doesn't pick up where this one dropped off, so is it just that the author decided to scrap this particular story arc in favor of a different one? Are all of these story arcs taken directly from the light novel? I dunno, it's not important, I guess. I'd like to say that this is a harem story done right. Almost all of the girls (Hestia, Eina, Syr, Aiz, Lilly, Lyu, Freya, and maybe even Mikoto) are given some individual time to shine and are all endearing in their own ways. The least interesting girl is probably the waitress Syr, though honestly the goddess Hestia can be pretty annoying. Lilly's initial duplicity and the whole Soma familia situation created for probably the most captivating story arc of the entire series. And the minotaur fight, which occurs soon afterwards (and could sorta be seen as a culmination of the Lilly story arc, if you squint), is the most intense and satisfying fight in the entire series. Most of the fights are just visually pretty, but without any weight behind them. And the only other fight with real intensity to it--the one on the 18th floor--wasn't nearly as satisfying as the minotaur fight. Part of that is that the Argonaut skill isn't very interesting and kinda just comes across like plot armor. I appreciate the efforts taken to flesh out each of the party members--having them join one at a time and having whole story arcs dedicated to them. I also very much like the world-building, and I think the way the gods are woven into the functionality of the city is very well done. The gods are the cornerstone of this series. Without their capricious interests and competitive squabbling, there wouldn't be nearly as much justification for all of the various drama and monster fights which occur in the series. The poverty and comparative lack of influence of some of the gods is a great touch as well.
