Noir is the son of a minor noble with very little to his name other than a job offer–which is canceled before he can even start his first day. He does possess one rare trait, though: the magical ability to consult with a great sage, even if using the skill gives him terrible headaches! Unsure of what his future holds, he accesses the sage for advice on how to move forward and is directed to a secret dungeon filled with rare beasts and magical items. It is here that Noir will train, compiling experience and wealth, until he’s powerful enough to change his fate.

Do not run away, running away is for cowards. This is the world for the brave, the world where there are lots of dungeons. The world, where there are many undiscovered paths to untouched treasures. At least, that is what people say. The story focuses upon a boy, who one day discovers a woman in the dungeon. Chained and unable to move, she claims to be one of the best adventures. She tells the boy a story that one day, she was clearing the dungeon and met a demon. Although, it only took her seconds to defeat the demon, it also activated the trap. And because of that, she has been chained for 200 years already. The boy explains the chained heroine that he wishes to become stronger in order to become a hero known to everyone and to be of help to his family. That is why, the chained heroine agrees to share her power with the boy and grants him very powerful skills. Every time he uses one of these skills, his life force will be consumed. Once it reaches 0, he dies. To refill the life force: lust, desires and just tasteful food will do. I have very mixed feelings on this one. Maybe this is because of the fact that this series is a borderline ecchi, maybe because of the fact that you do not know what to expect out of it. What I mean is that this manga tries to touch upon some serious topics: a boy, whose family belongs to the lowest nobles, does not want to be a burden to his family and so he tries to become a strong hero that will have the power to help friends and make his family proud of him and then you see some rather questionable episodes that make you doubt the whole manga. Like, you cannot take seriously a manga, where a male protagonist asks women to sit on his face to restore his ‘life force’, which is the resource needed for him to cast magic. Do not get me wrong, though. I do not have anything against ecchi. But there should be limit. Okay, Noru needs ‘life force’ to be able to cast magic and it is stated in the manga that tasty food and just whenever he accomplishes something in his life, help him restore his power. However, most of the time he restores his magic with the help of these borderline ecchi moments, which makes it somewhat boring. I am not trying to say that this manga is awful, though. It also has good things about it: boy is not that usual crybaby, his family does not have status and he does not want to be a burden to them and he wants to succeed in life without the help of his family. Because of him being a hard worker, he meets the strongest hero there is, who agrees to train him and many, many more. All in all, this manga will have an anime adaptation and the best comparison I have for this manga is Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?. So, if you enjoyed Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, I guess you will enjoy this manga, as well!
