time for dog
Oh shit new chapter?!
>>237718984a dashing hero!
>>237719226love how Kabru just immediately goes to poisoning her
>>237719149O nou D:
>>237719289RIP kensuke I guess
>>237719058Damn Sureau, you trying to hurt his feelings?
>>237719315>>237719324He has to be able to get SOME digs in after Laios cockblocked him so many times.
>>237719371Its cute that Senshi considers that shitty hippogriff soup his favourite food still.
>>237719348>a face you can trust
>>237719495kabru has the right idea
>>237719463I forgot, who's yaad
>>237719522the guy thistle turned into a doll
>>237718947>canaries>birds you bring to caves and mines in case of poisonous gas fumes leaking through the cracksDammit, I feel slow.
>>237719463I'm so damn jealous of Yaad right now.
>>237719526>>237719522Remember back when the group was cleaning Thistles house? Izu found a doll that Thistle had stuck Yaad's soul into (presumably as punishment for helping Laios and Co), and she's kept it on her this whole time. (But just hasn't told anyone yet because she's an idiot)
>>237719555>>237719531The grandson of the king of the golden land, the group met him ages back and he got turned into a doll
>>237719555If anyone has that page on hand, do you mind posting it after the dump's over?
>>237719540>>237719555Oh right right.
>>237719180>How would we go about cooking a demon?
>>237719495I know why I'm spooked. The lion head has a set of human teeth.
>>237719348Imagine being able to creampie Falin as she covers her mouth from screaming out in pleasure while her brother looks for you and knocking on her door if you were around.
>>>/tg/84514090 dump finished.
>>237719620poor kabru's still traumatisedalso I wonder if Namari getting punted off like that is a callback to the first chapter when they were fighting the dragon.
>>237719709"the dark lord Laios' just sounds so wrong
>>237719226Dwarfs are so straightforward and blunt but on point to take initiative.Elves are more knowledgeable and flexible depending on rather it would benefit their race so they are inclined to share knowledge and omit details when necessary.I like Kui's depiction of them as a dog and cat respectively relationship with humans. They're not only just thick drunks or vegan hippies but there is a sense of a different culture and race makes them feel more grounded in the story.
>>237718947Laios: spatula and panSenshi: cooking knifeIzutsumi: finger because finger food I guess?Chilchuck: ladle and something covered by the title, maybe a colander or mitt?Tade: rolling pin?Kuro:???Maizuru: seasoningDoni: cropped outPattadol: amphisbaena bowl from secret santaKabru: his murder dagger (completely normal kitchen utensil)Leed: cropped outRin: can't identify, maybe napkins?Tansu: whiskShuro: chopsticks, possibly dryad chopsticks from secret santaNamari: rice paddle?Zon: bowl?
>>237719735That's the chapter!
>>237719348What's he saying, lads?
>>237719744> Kuro ???He's got some steamers, like for dumplings or something.Anyways, here's some of the stuff Kui has posted on her blog, too.
>>237719792>I'm a fairy, let me in
>>237719348>bro just let me consume everyone its not that complicated lol
>>237719735But >Lord of the Monsters, Dark Lord Laios the Ravenoussounds pretty good
>>237719763>Well... Let's go save the world!>... Do we HAVE to?
>>237719802Also someone else pointed it out before but either one of the canaries has picked up the captains body or it sunk, since its not in the last panels where it should be floating. >>237719763
>>237719371That sounds sweet until you realize that all living beings will be reduced to drooling catatonics after having drained of their desires or go insane from having to generate more desires to stay alive.
Great chapter. One of the best ones. It was great to see so many characters together.
>>237719829>>237719840Yup, either the lion is intentionally trying to trick them with the 'I'll grant all your wishes forever' shit or he legit just didn't think things through/still doesn't understand how desires work.
The Yaad page someone was asking for
>>237719735>"the dark lord Laios'
>>237719840>>237719868I genuinely think he doesn't truly mean ill, but yeah people would eventually run out of desires. He just wants to fill his belly, and if it was possible to do it without hurting/killing people he would. But the infinite just isn't infinite enough to do that.
>>237719526>>237719555Kabru is being a smooth operator with his words but genuinely afraid of how a autist like Laius would react. Like this guy is using his best skill on a man who clearly has no inkling on sociability.
I've missed this....30+ pages...The funny...Welcome back Dungeon Meshi.
>>237719931It's not even that infinite isn't infinite enough, even if he's telling the truth it wouldn't end up like he'd hope, with people just getting instant gratification for whatever they wanted, it would dull their sense of desire and happiness to the point where they'd basically just be living puppets. The lion would still end up with nothing eventually since how the hell could the concept of 'desire' still exist when you're just given everything you could possibly want instantly right away?
>>237719990kind of hilarious that them meeting again is just a tiny side gag, he probably thought she was dead or something.
>>237719952But Laios never listens to him so.His plans and words are useless anyways.
>>237719709I'm getting Malenia PTSD from Laius
Fuck yes, uncertainty and fun shenanigans back on the MENU. I knew Kui had this!>>237719058>>237719126I love our dorks so much.
>>237719914>>237719939Fuck, I wish I was an orc.I would pork so many ladies.
>>237719736yeah kui's worldbuilding is just stellar, never fails to amaze how fleshed out, real feeling and distinct everyone is. races are genuinely different without falling into pure stereotypes either
>>237718984Is that Chithis bottom of first panel?
>>237719348God damn it Laios, all you had to do was get a real sword!
>>237719371Wait, so was lamia girlfriend real and not just an illusion of the girl he was crushing on? I feel bad for the brother if so.
>>237719058>Eww, gross!The dryads are not impressed.
>>237719802>THICKguess marcille is into that tho
>>237719126>this whole dialogue
>>237720224Hard to say, I wouldn't think so given that Mithrun said he was still on good terms with his brother (which I doubt would happen if he turned her into a chimera and caused her death). I think everyone in Mithruns world was just an illusion/fake person he created.IMO the issue is moreso that on a worldwide scale if both dudes wanted to be with the girl, they also wouldn't want the other guy to have her, meaning that their wishes contradict each other.
>>237719931This was my original thought, that the demons just didn't get it but the lion would be somewhat unique in having lived long enough with humans to actually learn and undergo some level of coevolution/adaption.The I figured nah, Lion is pure invasive species that must be destroyed.Now I'm a bit back to it being able to go either way. Fundamentally Lion should care about sustainability too and it may even care about humans in its own Alien twisted way. But it's missing key pieces since its education was warped. So now only Kui knows how this ends..
>>237719180It's simple, we eat the demon.
>Laios gets an arm blade like Yell from AkikanI love this series.
>>237720365>AkikanNow there's a name I haven't heard in years
>>237719226I like her attitude
>>237719655>sees doni reclining on mushroom pile>"truly this is just like utaya"
>>237719422That male lover looks like Chillcak somehow.
>>237719735ALL HAIL THE DARK LORD LAIOS
>>237719058bitches and whores
>>237719207>>237719289>>237719371So... Is all mana demons? A substance that wishes to fulfill human desires?Though I think in one of the side chapters they were talking about spirits, who are presumably not demons, so maybe not.
>>237719058This kind of stuff is EXACTLY why Laios can speedrun the dungeon on no gold run, and you can't. Creativity.
>>237719207Doodle guy has a pet cat!
>>237720747I don't think so, magic is something that already exists in this world naturally as energy, but Lycion is explaining it as the Lion's existance being like mana, its more of a force that happens to have a physical form as well, but it technically exists as the entire dungeon, not just the lion's body itself.
they are coming to kill you
>>237719289Lion is looking succulent there
>>237719735>i want flamela to choke me bros
>>237719315Et tu, Kensuke?
>>237719399Tell me bros….why does Laios love cheesecake
Why don't they just introduce a new type of pleasure to the winged lion.
>>237721065masturbation is a sin
>>237721065this would all be solved if they just gave him a bop it
>>237719090Finally using that brain there, Laius.
>>237721065What pleasure is Laios supposed to teach lion about?????? Fucking sex????? Our boy only knows how to eat
>>237719058Even the dryads can't stand Laios' autism.
>>237721078Its only a sin of god is watching. If they are they're masturbating as well
>>237721065Like what? The lion has no biological functions so they have nothing to really go off of in comparison to fucking eating concepts.
>>237721115Masturbate to god
So what's the over/under on if Laios rejects the lion's instrumentality project? Take into consideration that Laios is not necessarily stupid but he is insane.
>>237719348>I have no desire to destroy humanityThat's where he's different from Laius.
>>237721165Masturbate with god
>>237719371Today's food: the entire world.
>>237721046It's not even a monster
>>237721194Finally a reason to eat you out
>>237719058>How did it come to this
>>237719463>Yaad realizing this is the same fate Golden Land citizens>>237719522>>237719531Speedreaders...
>>237719495Standing here I realizeYou are just like me
>>237719399love how serious kabru's expression here is
>>237719447Yeah real end of the world villain speech right here.
>>237719526Reminder that Orcs hunting dragons with wargs is a behavior that was described before.
>>237719058Very funny Izutsumi doesn't need monster camo since she's a halfie.
>>237720603I assumed that was intentional since the dude with his wife and baby is definitely Delgal
>>237719735Hail Dark Lord Laios the Hungry, may his enemies always be well seasoned
>>237720603I'd like to think it's him and his now ex wife.
>>237719814How can you not trust someone with a face like that?
>>237719600I like Flamela's leadership.
>>237719399Does Laios's favorite food being cheesecake count as irony?
>>237719709Chilchuk with a tail.
So now that eating the demon is out of the picture, how do you think Kui will resolve the story?
>>237719735>Getting worked up over the cringy Dark Lord Laios nicknameIn a different world, Laios is a chuuni with an eyepatch and a bandaged right arm
>>237719735ALL HAIL DARK LORD LAIOS ALL HAIL THE KING OF THE MONSTERS
>>237721589Hey that's exactly Marcille's type.
>>237721582Push the beast back.
>>237719763kek this is the time they decide to act like pricks
>>237721601You're not her wife why would you do that
>>237719802Is Kui drawing her fatter?
>>237719829I mean if it's a corpse, it should float on it's own really.
>>237719829I like the monkey sweatshirt
>>237721169He talked about clearing up a misconception on the walk to the tower. So I think he's gonna reject it.
>>237719914Damn look at those dwarf bones.
>>237720603I noticed that too.
>>237719180he looks like a kangaroo.
>>237721582Laios will take over the dungeon and make some sort of renewable human desire farm for the demon
>>237721022Kill yourself wojakposter
>>237721582>So now that eating the demon is out of the pictureEAT THE INEDIBLE
>>237721169Laios will feed himself to Lion and give the demon a more sustainable view on desire farming by proxy. Then they will become best friends.
>>237721582They're gonna feed the lion a source of infinite desires somehow. I just don't know how.
>>237721750CHEW THE UNCHEWABLE
UUUUOOOOOOOOOHHH HOT WOMAN
>>237721851I feel like that would only be a solution if Lion were the only demon.But he isn't, there's presumably all sorts of demons out there
>>237721521I hope after the manga is over, Kui releases an Utaya mini-series depicting what really happened and Doni is just inexplicably there
>>237721872All demons are part of the same whole, the lion explained it earlier as each one of them (including Mithruns goat) existing like strands of hair attached to the same head.
>>237719555>Pattadol is still aliveAll's right with the world
>>237719422>>237719399its the magic pudding, he's offering them the magic pudding.
>>237721856ROW ROW COOK THE POWER
>>237721890Right, so what would happen if you somehow permanently fed one without destroying the world? I'm sure other demons would want in on that shit too one way or another.
>>237721869I WILL NOT PARTAKE IN LION’S SECONDHAND GOODS
>>237721927> without destroying the worldseems like all demons were working towards the idea that they would eat enough to escape the dungeon then just eat the world if possible, they don't really seem capable of restraint (even the lion fell to the pleasure of eating once it was right in front of him)
>>237721582The Lion decides to become a magical Santa expy.
>>237719763Haven't read yet, but thank you! Meshi time is best time and the high quality scanlations only make it better
>>237721966>here's your ending
>>237721621>Inb4 Marcille is actually orchestrating events to mold Laius into the Tallman equivalent of her ideal husbandoIf he takes an eye injury this is legit
>>237721776>>237721688>>237721169The lion eats by fufiling a desire, so by fufiling the lion's desire you eat it.
>>237722037But Tallman men are ugly
>>237722062Not quite ugly, just not really conducive to elven beauty standards. Laius cleans up pretty well though, even if he's too broad-shouldered to look like a proper bishounen.
>>237722062Why is Marcille so racist.
>>237719655rip to this very unlucky canary
>>237719553Same. Imagine the fluffy feeling...
>>237721455Not ex, just estranged. They aren't divorced yet, his wife just moves back to her parents' home. There's still a chance for the to reconcile in the future.
>>237722125Are people still expecting a dramatic ending after this goofy fight? >inb4 the oneshots Even if Kui wrote drama before she's clearly going for a comedic tone here.
>>237719003out fucking skilled
>>237719763>Oh, you need us too?What did they expect him to do by himself? Seduce Marcille into making him co-DM and then go from there?
>>237719226He's gonna kiss her to get her out of the demon's grip. Calling it, even though I haven't finished the chapter yet
>>237719090>she is forced by the elves to become the lord of the dungeon to fight the elvesThis is your brain in dwarves
>>237722281Kissing a mule? That's too low even for him.
>>237722324She's a very charming mule who really needs a kiss after all she's been through
>>237719399Cheesecake, heh can't argue with that
>>237721582Laios is going to become the new dungeon lord and wish for something insaneIt's going to be to give everyone quintuple headsThe elf queen will be so impressed that nobody goes to prison>>237722287I mean it's not entirely inaccurate, though it probably would have happened anyway even if they had stayed out of it, just a few hours later instead of when it did.
>>237722364>Laios mindbreaks the demon…by being himselfAh the succubus chapter was foreshadowing
>>237721046Probably made from monster milk
>>237722324He clearly thought mules are neat though.
Everyone thought they'd eat the demon, but the be real ending was to cook for the lion. The ultimate dish to fill a demon's belly.
>>237719763They thought laious was going to beat marcille with the power of the dick
>>237719180At this point Laious has stopped like 20 kind of massacres, killing and world ending scenarios and nobody is giving enough credit.
>>237719802Why does Kui keep drawing Falin fatter and fatter? She ain't this obese in the earlier chapter.
>>237719526Shut the fuck up Kabru, one simply talk would had had avoided this mess. You talk like Laious hasnt risked his life to solve everyone's problem all the time
>>237719315This smaller Lion is even more rapey-looking somehow
I still think the winged lion is a good lad
>>237719735>>237719709all hail dork lord louis
>>237721046It's just that good.
>>237722715He's literally entrusting him with a situation almost anyone with a brain would be able to answer immediately though. Honestly I think it's dumb as hell of Kabru to leave this to Laios, his whims are too unpredictable to decide everyone's fate.
>>237722794Orcs are literally not considered an humanoid species because they have a lower number of bones.
>>237722878> Oni are humans even though Orcs aren't this sucks
>>237722364>I mean it's not entirely inaccurateShe meantvrltge elves actively wanted her to become the dungeon lord.Yes technically they were a part of her fall but by extending that logic all her friends, her included, also pushed her since she doesn't want to outlive her friends.
>>237722831This, he really should have gone with the team at this point, Laios needs someone to reign him in a bit and bring him back to reality.
>>237719735Cute floofy hair elf!
Goddamn what a good chapter that was. The cool thing is I don't doubt the WL is being honest. He basically wants to make the whole world something like the Matrix where he cultivates and consumes everyone's desires and in exchange they all live awesome (in their perception) lives.
>>237719058Kot just needs a scarf
>>237719126The big brain moment
>>237719763Why did they even walk all the way over there?
>>237722943He's not telling the full truth. He's right about how once you finally fulfill a desire it vanishes, but he didn't tell them about how this happens because he literally eats that desire from them. Humans are flawed creatures because once a desire is eaten this way, it doesn't come back, while if left alone humans will naturally gain new desires. Wants are infinite, after all.And it's not in his interest to. He's an apex predator, and humans are his principal prey. Kabru is right, he's a con man. But his offer to Laios may be the only way to restore normality so far, because as much as humans don't want the power of the dungeon lord, it is necessary at this point for Laios' goals in saving his sister, Marcille, and the island.
>>237722943It doesn't even seem like it'd be as complex as the matrix, its seemingly more of a person by person solitary existence since otherwise the same "giving someone what they desire would take someone elses desire away" scenario would still play out within that world if everyone was together. You'd just get instant gratification for whatever you want, you're in some weird dream-scape where every conceivable desire you want is granted consistently and instantly. Honestly it'd probably end up just as bad if not worse than the golden kingdom after enough time passed, there's no reason for desire as a concept to exist if you just already get everything you even kind of want instantly.
>>237720360>>237719588haha that would be funny omake
>>237723104Seems like they wanted to see how Mithruns negotiation played out before they did anything + maybe wanted some breathing time to think up a plan/discuss it with someone, but also it seems like they made a quick decision to go and save Lycion once they saw he was injured but alive.
>>237719207>All the monsters that you ate ... is part of the demonoh no
>>237723158I wonder if the party has been biologically affected in any way.
>>237723119Makes me wonder what degree of mind reading the lion is capable of aside from the DM themselves (since we've seen it communicate mentally in the past with Laios and Delgal)Mainly because it seems like Laios is cooking up some kind of plan contrary to what the lion wants, or at least, he doesn't seem to fully agree with it despite not outright saying so, so I wonder if he'll be able to get to the point of wishing for something without the lion knowing he's potentially being japed.Or, hell, what if the lion can pick and choose what wishes it answers in the first place? If someone comes by with a wish it dislikes could it just say no?
>>237723177I mean Senshi and the Orcs have been eating monsters/dungeon food for probably decades at least at this point, and they seem physically fine.
>>237719207>all the monsters i ate are part of a demon>wow, demons taste delicious (in dungeon (tm))>if i cook the main body, i bet it'll be the most delicious thing ever>hey demon! i have a big desire you might be interested in! i want to eat you!!>the demon eats laius' desire and laius constantly eats the demon back, creating a stable loop
>>237723195They also previously established that digesting parts of the dungeon (monsters) eliminates the revival rule, which is why those monsters don't revive. Perhaps because monsters are infused with mana, eating them increases your affinity to mana, explaining Laios' super rapid growth in magic skill (aside from natural affinity and hard work)?
>>237719447The Shopenhauer wants to know your position kind of speech.
>>237719600this will take main portion of budget in the anime
>>237723208If the solution to saving the world is perpetual 69ing with a large cat then I'm quitting.
>>237723234All animals naturally process and integrate/expel mana, even normal foods have mana in them. In Laios's case, I don't think just eating monsters would be what made him better at magic, moreso just that he finally had a reason to learn it properly + Marcille did a much better job at explaining the process of casting than Falin did. Seems like healing/spirit communication probably runs in the family somewhat.If there's any excess mana in someone's system (which differs depending on what race they are) it gets excreted either in faeces or through gas (like we saw with Senshi) or whatever else, I don't think there's any way to like, increase your natural mana capacity/capability outside of DM level magic shit.
>>237719735> elven girls(?) gushing over calling him Dark Lord typical isekai dream
>>237721046he likes them THICC.
>>237721521I love how they keep including Doni fucking up somehow
>>237719180>>237719149>>237719126>Do I look like a man with a plan ?
>>237719149This wouldn't be happening if you had just let them capture Thistle
>>237723158The eat the demon has been going on from the start of the manga!
>>237723537Sure but then this shit probably would have never ended until one of the demons eventually broke through.Plus it's not like Kabru really knew the severity of dungeons or demons at that point because elves didn't tell anyone the truth.
>>237719526What are these faces meant to convey? Is it that hard to say "no, we won't wish for the demon to devour the world and everyone in it"?
>>237723568Laios is '?????????? why are you leaving what did you mean by that" and Izutsumi is probably just "RUDE, talking shit and then just leaving"
>>237721046>>237722421Made with minotaur milk I'm sure
>>237723568Laius is confused as shit about what this practical stranger is talking about. Asebi may actually be mad for Laius in a show of loyalty, given what he has done he doesn't deserve to have his character called into question (by someone who is not in the party).
>>237719931>I genuinely think he doesn't truly mean illHow naive are you?
>>237723637>given what he has done he doesn't deserve to have his character called into questionThat's not how I read that page at all. He's only insulting the lion and saying he doesn't think Laios will fall for it. He basically complimented him.
>>237721521Imagine getting teabagged by a fungus
>>237723667Demons are turbo autists. Their morals aren't anywhere near human standards, if they have any at all.
I wonder why the Winged Lion had Kensuke wrap its tentacles around Laios' hand and arm.
>>237722112He only cleans up because if he left his beard alone he'd look like his father
>>237723775because it looks cool, duh
>>237723775Probably just so that he wouldn't attempt to just toss kensuke into the water once the demon started talking to him, or after. Its seemingly the best way for him to communicate to them at this point.
>>237719802Falin is so meaty
Just caught up on the last 8 chapters or so. What a ride. I love everything about this manga so much- the designs, the world, the art, the story
>>237723713It's very passive aggressive. >"Up until now I was afraid you'd be an idiot fuck up who would sell out the world to a demon to play monster rancher, but now I'm confident that you're going to choose the right side (which doubted your methods, questioned your sanity, and is currently suicide charging into a monster army)" And then he immediately admits to himself that he still doubts Laius. Laius is just confused, but Asebi is intuitive enough to see through it.
>>237721727Those guys always make me think of pic related.
>>237719735>train to become a paladin>become the Dark Lord insteadMANY SUCH CASESSAD!
>>237721163The true essence of things themselves but that would be philo 102 and that is too much for japanese authors
>>237723854Kabru was referring to the last time they talked when he said he wasn't sure which side he was on, it's not about after Laios was given context. I don't know how that's supposed to be passive aggressive when it's simply true that Laios was more fond of monsters than humans and wasn't guaranteed to side with humans until now (and we still don't even have confirmation that he will) because he didn't understand the situation.
>>237724019Man, I remember making this back when Kabru was recently introduced and everyone assumed he was going to be the manga's dicklord. He turned out a lot more reasonable as the story went along. I mean he still won't trust Laius 100% but can't blame him.
>>237724150Yeah, the days of Cabron have long passedAnd frankly, his assumptions regarding Laius' team weren't unreasonable at the time
>>237724150I'm not unhappy with the story or anything, but to be honest I kind of wanted to see what that was like... the whole "I actually wanted to be your friend!" thing felt kind of lame to me.
>>237724116>it's simply true that Laius wasn't guaranteed to side with humanity and would let a hoard of monsters kill everyoneWhat the fuck? What manga have you been reading?
>>237723854>>237724116If it helps clear things up at all, his "up until now" line in japanese is 以前 which if you went with a more literal translation would be something like "previously" with no clear frame for how far back he means other than some time in the past.
>>237724302He didn't know a hoard of monsters would kill everyone until now. He even announced to everyone that the dungeon might be evil as if it was some new discovery because it hadn't occurred to him before the doppelganger. And I'm not trying to smear him with this stuff, I love Laios, this is just an observation of his character.
>>237718947GUYSI GOT ITTHEY WOULDLAIUS WOULDASK MARCILLE TO TRANSFORM THE WHOLE DUNGEON INTO EDIBLESDUNGEONMESHI
>>237724302No one would expected Marcille doing the same.Plus it is not about him being evil or some shit but the fact that he still could be manipulated by the lion.
>>237719792traps are gay
>>237723617You have no power over me, wallstreetbets demon!
>>237722696I think she used to just have a general idea for everyone's body builds but the guidebook pushed her to settle on concrete weight ranges for everyone and she went pretty high with Falin's. iirc, her BMI is even higher than Shuro, her suitor.
I hope this ends soon.
>>237723775Tried to go for the head initially, too. Not very conducive for its plan of negotiating a second DM out of him.
>>237724758Eh, I don't think its that much of a change from how she was. Her shapeless looking cleric clothes just hid her curves really well.Also I don't know if Shuro is a good comparison since its basically canon that he's A) reasonably malnourished for the majority of the time we've seen him since he's been pushing himself without eating a lot of the time, and B) He's implied to be a very thin guy even under normal circumstances.
>>237723747I only think Lion must really have a personality because of how much fun he was having when it was just him and Thistle. Agree, though, that he's just saying whatever he thinks gets him closer to eating the world and doesn't care.
>>237719422Kui's art just keeps on improving
>>237724779>manga ends>kui finally takes off her power limiters>she starts writing the doni spin-off which wins every manga award known to man and ushers in a new golden age of manga
>>237719315>kensuke has been slowly taking on the aspect of the lion this whole time and it's incredibly obvious in retrospect yet I still forgot and can't remember any anons in old threads raising the possibilityKui, I kneel.
>>237725138>the manga is so successful, that Doni even succeeds to impregnate half-elf Fionil.What a chad
>>237719735Glory to Dark Lord Laios!
>>237725273https://desuarchive.org/a/thread/175603611/#q175630595except we did when the manga explicitly pointed it out in chapter 46I didn't expect Kui to continue this plotpoint thoughi'd update this image but the original is lost in a dead HDD so meh
>>237724779Why? You think it's gone on too long?
>>237724010Paladins are the root of all evil in the world.
>>237719763Great chapter, thanks OP.
>No, I don't want that!>My friends dying in 50 years...!?>I want everyone to have a long lifespan!>A thousand years at least!!
do you think senshi would play Deep Rock Galactic?
>>237727111I don't think Senshi is the type to play videogames at all. He might get inspired from Laios or Marcille playing it and try to brew some craft beer though.
>>237727150really? I just thought that senshi might be the type to play DRG.
>>237727150This, senshi’s definitely an analogue kind of guy, would probably accidentally download malware if he used a computer, IF he knew how to use it one at all.
>>237719709Is the demon just stupid or way too overconfident?It's assuming that Laios will go to Marcille to have her hand over her dungeon lord's power to him, when he obviously wants another chance to change Marcille's mind or stop her.
>>237727294>is the being of infinite energy overconfident?
>the demon is an animal just one that feeds off fulfilling desires>ergo to eat the winged lion one must fulfil its desires.
>>237727367This is some Toriko-tier preparation requirements
>>237727357could they not simply pull the lion OUT of the dungeon, have it be subject to the laws of entropy and then eat it? >>237727367laius is going all in.
>>237719763I love these guys
>>237719814>jesus christ how horrifying
>>237727381Yeah, let's just let the lion out of the cage so we can eat it.
>>237727209>the dolphin told me to trust him
so do monster exist outside of dungeons in this setting?
>>237721728>>237722255>>237722364He's already the co-lord. That's why the monsters stopped fighting.Probably. I guess it could be that Lion relayed a message to Marcille to get her to stop for a moment... But given her temperament and how she views the world, her life, and everything else... Just asking wouldn't stop her.
>>237727367The demon isn’t an animal
Fuck, series gonna end soon? Feels like it.
>>237727773It’s 100% on its final arc, I’d guess one more volume after this one
>>237727804Dang,just right after Golden Kamuy finished too.
>>237727773I bet it's gonna end at chapter 100
>>237719802she'll live, right?
>>237728299It's too bad she won't live. But then again, who does?
>>237719422>>237719447Oh, it's designed like a two page spread. The first text bubble starting at the bottom confused me at first.
>>237719735>I wonder what you taste like
So, bets?>Laius will get thru to Marcille by reminding her of Farlyn and why all this happened in the first place>Laius will take the rep hit for being dungeon lord to allow Marcille her freedom
>>237722281>Namari, no>Just because it would've worked 100% on you doesn't mean it would work on Marcille
>>237719422>>237719447actual reasoning...>>237719463...and appropriate reactions. this manga is perfect
>>237723234Monsters don't revive because their souls aren't bind by the laws of the dungeon, except for the phoenix which follows a different revive mechanic.
>>237719690>>237719709>>237719735LAIUS! LAIUS! LAIUS!
>>237723775So that Laios wouldn't get rid of ot after the lion revealed himself, it's pretty obvious.
>>237722900I wish she would join the main cast...
>>237723853If you love it so much why were you behind schedule?
>>237728472>Laius proposes to Marcille his plan for eating the dungeon and Winged Lion is appalled enough to seal the dungeon until Laius dies
>>237724892Look at the bath chapter, Falin was definitely not this big.
>>237724779I hope you end yourself
>>237725615Huh thanks for posting this.
>>237719792>it's not gay if it's an elf
>>237723783He looked handsome as fuck with the shaggy hair and stubble holy shit
I miss Thistle
>>237719180>>Laius Touden >>Slays a dragon>>Slays his sister with his own hands>>Now he's calmly planning on slaying a demonLaius is a fucking ball of crystallised focus, will, and industry
Did you guys prefer the more comfy, adventure-esque first half of the series or what's going on now?
>>237728819She was definitely curvy though, I’ll agree that Kui probably bumped it up a notch but not by much
>>237721582Some Snk-tier retarded shit probably, I've lost my faith in nips writing good endings
>>237729402It's the same.
>>237729482Nah, the beginning war more laid back and comfy
>>237729418>not by much
>>237729402I like both, i probably would have just gotten bored if it had stayed as a ‘meal of the week’ type slow plot, the integration of higher stakes and more serious (and weird) lore/plot information has only served to draw my interest in even more, especially since I’ve grown to really like most of these characters little quirks through that slower earlier pacing.Also appreciate how Kui has still kept in the idea of an ecosystem/nature in the main plot in various ways, as well as how solidly she’s kept in comedic elements even during fairly dark scenes.
>>237729489I like it the same.
>>237721582Find a different dungeon, wake up that demon, feed the different dungeon demons to each other, ouroboros the fuckers.
>>237729507? Yeah? You can already see her big knickers on that page. Regardless of everything she’s not really fat around the arms/neck even now, she’s just got a big chest and big hips/thighs, it’s mainly just emphasised when she’s wearing the tight fitting clothes in those sketches
>>237729507she was just resurrected here from nothing. resurrection burns fat. She probably very rarely dies due to being the party heal slot.
>>237729561Stop looking at her "knockers" and think rationally.>>237729595I guess that could be an explanation, but I'm tired of people pretending Falin was always drawn fat.
>>237729561Falin’s been canonically stacked for a while now
>>237729704She’s not even fat in the sketches though, she’s just curvy and wearing clothes that make that even more apparent
>>237729739she's big and huge
>>237729706Oh fuck off, she's at least 10 kg heavier in those sketches than she was after being revived. Look at the more revealing clothes bottom row.>>237719802
>>237729812Actually meant to quote >>237729739
>>237718984I love this guy
>>237718984Ngl I kinda want to stroke his snout
>>237729595>She probably very rarely dies due to being the party heal slot.You mean slut
>>237719058gonna reread the last chapter, see if i can spot them lol
>>237719149>We have to kill Marcille?Come to think of it, I just killed my imouto so let's roll with that yeah
>>237719931So the whole point of this dumb manga is you can't have good times without bad times. So Laios and his party is just going to have to accept his sister's death and I won't get my incest romance. I can't believe I wasted my time reading this crap.
>>237730009Shuro wouldn't have formally proposed to a slut. Actually we've seen the face of the party designated slut, but she went her separate way before Falin was eaten.
>>237730112>Actually we've seen the face of the party designated slutIzutsumi?
>>237719180>Laios casually heals wolfbro
>>237719289An enemy that you can't eat?! Oh no, he's unbeatable!
>>237730104>I won't get my incest romance.I wonder who could be behind this post.
>>237723775Following Marcille’s orders to keep track of the gang. This way Laius can’t just get rid of his magical GPS chip and prevent Marcille from knowing his location.
>>237730237Why does Marcille hate Japanese people again?
>>237719250cat highly functioning psychopath
>>237730276Probably because he wants to fuck her wife.
>>237730276Elves are racist
So what's the reason this never got an anime until this late into the story? Because sales plummeted?
>>237730541It's a normal procedure to announce an anime when a series is close to wrapping up.
>>237730541Did they? I thought dm was doing pretty good
>>237730574Not really, usually anime serves as an ad for the manga to boost sales during its run. >>237730594Yeah about 200%
This definitely wraps volume 12 and conclusion will be in vol 13, right? Unless Kui extends a couple more chapter for a fat volume 12 and ends it here
>>237730646All the more reasons to buy volumes myself.
>>237730646There are thousand series that got an adaptation shortly after they ended.Chainsawman, to name one.
>>237719226>Just kiss her you idiot.
>>237730741Chainsaw also only run for about 2 years, usually you dont get an anime this early. It just suddenly exploded in popularity, so you cant really compare it to DM
>>237729293Just imagine how many chicks he would get with his reputation.
>>237730789I can compare it to a thousand series, because it's normal practice. But I don't want to drag further this salesfaggotry.
>>237719463>granting everyone's desires is bad because.....>IT JUST IT OK???
>>237731043Sad demon cope
>>237730854Yeah, didnt mean to start salesfaggotry, just find it say they didn't take the opportunity to announce an anime during its peak.
>>237719399Cheesecake is delicious, good tastes.
>>237730541Because Dungeon Meshi is published in Harta magazine by Enterbrain. High quality publication, but quite niche. Anime is made for big mainstream houses like Shueisha or Kodansha to promoto their already big properties into full on mainstream. The fact the DM made it over 100k on its own, and remains there is speaking for itself.This >>237730646 is a pretty normal popular manga sales distribution chart. Especially for a monthly manga. A one running for a decade .Sales decline over time since you can't keep your audience attention forever. Your brain has to be full on shonenshit to call this plummeting.
>>237721343Kabru's one stick is being able to analyze people from small interactions, Laius continues to confound him.
>>237719735ENTERTHE DARK LORD, LAIOS
>>237724758Falin BMI is 25, just at the boundary between high-weight normal and slightly overweight.Chonky, titty waifu
>>237722715>one simply talk would had had avoided this mess.Kabru did try that but the elves mucked up his attempts at communicating by leading the negotiation while he was stuck with magic handcuffs.
>>237719735Laios the devourer of all
>>237719877>>237719555>But just hasn't told anyone yet because she's an idiotRemember that cat doesn't recall anything from the monster village, she was in a brainded cat mode there.She never met Yaad, she has no idea who he is.
>>237731345>ywn have a braindead junkie pettanko elf gf
>>237719289Someone remind me how does one go about defeating a Daemon in 40k because the concept is so similar.
>>237731043>keeping people alive beyond their own decision to opt out is good because...>it just is, okay!?You'd be surprised how related these two posts are. Fundamentally, the victorious idea will persist.
>>237721440so Kui has just drawn halfling hand-holding sex in missionary position
>>237719371Interesting how Kui has designated human to be a term covering many of the different races we have seen up till now. Since she very specifically calls what we would normally think of a human, as Tallmen, so it's not just them, perhaps even the Orcs are considered humans?
>>237719735>he doesn't link the fire>he listens to Kaathe's bullshitI seriously hope you guys don't do this
>>237722169That's some half-assed cope.
>>237725359Fuck you don't give me ideas>the one girl Shpo has not lewded yet
>>237731761It's probably the Japanese ningen term.
>>237719802>gradually smaller heads, wider bodies and dykier designsBros, I think Kui has contracted a western art disease and is devolving.
>>237731834I think you contracted the calarts boogeyman.
>>237731761They discussed that already; it varies by region. In the main region the standard fantasy races are considered human, with orcs and beastfolk left out. It Shuro's region it's just Tallmen.
>>237728819yeah she was not. Maybe Kui saw that bikini edit and liked it
Can't you just close the portal to the other world in the dungeon to make the lion a non infinite being that can be eaten?
>>237730009>>237730112it's not slut if you do it with caterpillars and tuff
>>237730276She hates Namari and Shuro for abandoning Falin
>>237730237I want to see whoever is on the top. Bet he marry the marriage seeker.
>>237731247One Punch Man's chart looks the same. As the autists flooding the threads never cease to remind you.
>>237732047It would be like cutting an hair
>>237731551The lore isn't consistent (because it's 40k), but the most reliable method to permanently kill a one seems to be to learn the daemon's true name and then use a (extremely taxing) psychic ritual to command it to practically commit seppuku and obliterate itself from existance, IIRC.
>>237731834oh boy we got a scaremonger
>>237732214Yeah but it's only one hair going out of control, no need to try to kill the whole head right now.
>>237724268That's a shame, that was one of my favorite pay-offs in the story. And it only worked so well for me both because he clearly hadn't realized it himself until he blurted it out despite being the series smart guy, and also because all the time and effort he put into scheming and ingratiating himself made it way funnier when he spilled all of his spaghetti and had his carefully cultivated image crumble down.I'll admit I'm biased for friendship stuff though, and while it was fun when Kabru seemed nuts, I couldn't really see the griffith-lite stuff going anywhere that would fit the tone and themes of the manga. It's more fitting to me to have the villain be a force of nature than some guy.
>>237732274>I couldn't really see the griffith-lite stuff going anywhere that would fit the tone and themes of the manga.About that...

>>237733745Falin is 69 kg IIRCjust like me damnStop saying Fionil I want to do her till she can't walk already
>>237729402It's still really similar though, just instead of saving Farlyn they need to defeat the lion and goofy shenanigans happen inbetween. The only true difference is the lack of monster cuisine.
>>237723309you'll get your poorly cgi'd copy pasted elves and be happy
>>237730104>incest romancedelete dis
>>237733935Dwarves all have skewed BMI. Consider that BMI is calculated dividing weight by height.
>>237719606Because of that, I can't unsee the fact that it could just be a inhumanoid speaking behind a giant lion head mask.
>>237733958>kabru directs the anime>>237734050Yeah I forgot to mention in that post that some races also just have way larger skeletons, as can be seen in >>237719914
>>237727381The entire point of dungeon mazes was to contain demons so they can't eat the world.
>>237721890Further clarified that the elves believe demons and dungeons are all the same, a giant body of magic energy with autonomy centered around demons being the collective brain of the body. This explains why the Lion knew Mithrun despite not being the goat and how the entire dungeon makes him omnipotent. Like a game server with the GM running around with omnipotent powers.Whatever the solution is, it will definitely end with something to do with the Demon rather they're going to lock him up once more, sever the connection from Marcille or find some vulnerability. They can't kill him or eat him since he's a part of the dungeon so the they to treat him as a environmental hazard.

>>237734391I want to see them in human version
I don't trust the Lion, but how are they going to outsmart a being thats smarter than everyone?Laius said it himself, it even was able to easily trick Marcille and she probably has the highest amount of INT of the entire party.
>>237719600>that one elf awkwardly climbing down the ledge
>>237734971laius is too dumb to trick
>>237734317Just like FemKabru

>>237733745>>237734200Actually, it probably make more sense to separate them by species to account for the anatomical differences.tallman BMI:Laios (26)Delgal (25)Falin, Hien, Doni (24)Shuro, Kaka (23)Maizuru, Kiki, Kabru (21)Benichidori (20)Yaad (19)Rin (18)Izutsumi (counting her here since there's no other good category for her) (17)elf and half-elf BMI:Lycion (24)Mithrun, Milsiril (21)Marcille, Pattadol, Cithis, Otta (20)Fleki, Fionil (18)Thistle (17)dwarf BMI:Totan (43)Gillin (40)Dia, Brigan (38)Senshi (36)Invar (35)Namari (34)gnome BMI:Null (24)Tansu, Holm (21)Yarn (20)half-foot BMIChilchuck, Mickbell (18)Not really worth listing the rest since there aren't enough characters of the same species to compare to.
>>237735392Kaka and Kiki are gnomes, ya goof.
Can Marcile even be salvaged? even if she gets rescued the Lion has eaten away at her, Thistle had some licks and was a demented madman divorced from reality and reason as a result.
>>237735588It's all or nothing. Either Marcille, Thistle and Mithrun all get healed or no one does.
>>237735559You're right, my bad.
>>237735588her fashion sense has its own circle in hell waiting
>>237729293Don't forget the time he soloed like 8 dragons to beat Thistle.
>>237719226>cuckquean and masochistdawrf girls are something else
>>237728819That was freshly reconstituted out of dragonflesh Falin. Some curve was lost in ham form.
>>237735999she's encouraging the man she's attracted to into chasing another woman
>>237735392>Dia above Senshi>Namari at the bottomEeeeh Namari is more lean than I expected.
>>237735053It's his first mission, isn't it?
>>237735978>>237736093>headcanonShe only has a thing for sexy tallmen legs
>>237732215Will Kui do something similar? The concept sounds interesting AF.
>>237736093she's got a tallman fetish, but I don't think it's ever been suggested she's attracted to Laius specifically beyond that.
>>237734931That panel could just mean that Laius is into choking girlsReminder that he only thinks “Wait maybe this isn’t actually Marcille” in the page directly AFTER this one.
>>237736178It's actually not that interesting, other than the fallout caused by the Emperor banishing Horus.I don't think it would work at Meshi's powerscale.
>>237735588I'm pretty sure she will. Mithrun's character also has nothing left for him after the demons are gone and I really doubt this is going to end with them just removing one hair from the head and calling it a day, so I think they're setting up some way to regrow your desires. Thistle I'm a lot less sure about because he's elongated his life a considerable amount with the dungeon already so he might just turn into dust like Delgal when it's all over.
>>237736219He was about to kill her.
>>237736183Didn’t she used to drag him out onto shopping trips? Also I’m fairly certain there’s a gag where some of her friends jokingly call him her boyfriend.

>>237736546Thread’s probably gonna die before I can find it but I’ll see if I can track it down
stop kinkshaming namari
>>237736546>>237736489It was Kaka
I completely forgot about Kensuke. I guess it was just living in the sword and didn't have any bigger purpose in the story. At least until now being a cool design change for Laios. The demon seems to be a slave somewhat to human desires so I wonder if the way they defeat it will involve that in any way. I kind of like the idea of the desire feedback loop between it and Laios that someone mentioned.
>>237736673>Do you want to see us wearing nothing but leg pouches, Namari?Imagine
>>237736742Did you forget the winged lion opening the door for them? It was the changeling chapter.
>>237736711Ah that’s it. I guess I extrapolated that due to the joking nature of the comment, “NEW boyfriend” implies that Laius would’ve been considered the previous one, given that he was the Tallman guy she hung out with the most before that.
>>237735021>magic mirror laios still ignores her
>>237736977Wow you're really reading too much into this. Is that what shipfaggotry does to you?
>>237734971It's not that Lion is smart so much as he is an eldritch being beyond our comprehension
>>237735021>>237737105>>237737291it is simply incredible that Kui went >Kabru is paranoid about Liaos's monster autism to the point of wanting to kill him>Kabru as a girl is scorching hot and wants the autistic dick so much it makes her look stupid.
>>237737105>>237737291What fenotype is this?
>>237737138I mean looking at it in hindsight it's a bit of a reach. I think it was just something I had thought of when that chapter initially came out to encourage more memes about Namari being a tallman fetishist because I find those amusing, and then afterwards I forgot the context of that and all that I could remember is "Namari's friends tease her by calling someone her boyfriend."
>>237737433When the magic mirror short came out some people thought that it was femKabru trying to be manipulative like her male counterpart but I think it was actually foreshadowing spilling his spaghetti because he wanted the d (dfriendship)
>>237737433I mean if FemKabru's still otherwise the same personality-wise, it makes sense.Kabru's a sociopath who's absurdly good at handling human interaction, while Laios is an autist who's absurdly good at handling monsters. He'd be the Yin to her Yang.Together their kids have the potential to be autistic sociopaths who can navigate the depths of a dungeon and the intrigues of a courtroom with equal ease.
