Delicious in Dungeon Episode 2 Recap
Delicious in Dungeon Episode 1 opens with a Fairy Tail-style narration that explains the history of the titular dungeon, revealing the existence of the treasure-ridden Golden Kingdom that supposedly lies in its deepest depths. We then cut to a climactic battle between a party of adventurers and a red dragon that ends with the party’s cleric, Falin, sacrificing herself to teleport her friends to safety.
Unwilling to abandon his sister and unphased by the party’s lack of funds, Failin’s brother Laios re-enters the dungeon, accompanied somewhat reluctantly by the half-elven mage Marcille and halfling thief Chilchuck. Once inside, he reveals he plans to survive by cooking and eating the diverse host of monsters that inhabit the dungeon.
Almost as soon as they enter the dungeon, the party finds, kills, and begins to cook a living mushroom. Their unusual food choice attracts the attention of Senshi, an eccentric dwarven warrior with in-depth knowledge of the biology and anatomy of monsters. Senshi agrees to join them upon learning their intentions, hoping to cook the red dragon.
Descending to the forested second level of the dungeon, the party encounters a man-eating plant that nearly devours Marcille. Working as a team, the party defeats the plant and uses its fruit to cook a delicious stew, ending the episode.
