About Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Novel Volume 1

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Novel Volume 1 is written by Fujino Omori with illustrations by Suzuhito Yasuda.

In Orario, fearless adventurers band together in search of fame and fortune within the monstrous underground labyrinth known as Dungeon. But while riches and renown are incentive enough for most, Bell Cranel, would-be hero extraordinaire, has bigger plans. He wants to pick up girls.

Is it wrong to face the perils of Dungeon alone, in a single-member guild blessed by a failed goddess? Maybe. Is it wrong to dream of playing hero to hapless maidens in Dungeon? Maybe not. After one misguided adventure, Bell quickly discovers that anything can happen in the labyrinth - even chance encounters with beautiful women. Only problem? He's the one who winds up the damsel in distress!

An excellent fantasy adventure (with an awful title)


Despite the title, this series is a classic fantasy adventure done right. Bell becomes an adventurer to "meet girls", but becomes instantly smitten with the very powerful girl who saves his life. He's then motivated to improve himself and win her heart.

The strengths of this volume is the premise, which is unique enough for the flooded fantasy LN genre and intriguing enough to keep reader interest, and the familial relationship between Bell and his god Hestia. Their relationship is heartwarming and innocent, and is complex enough for it to feel like a real family unit. One unfortunate habit of the author is to spend too much time describing the chests of the female characters, but as a whole the series is pretty tame. The translation is also excellent, and reads very well. Highly recommended.

Great series

by -

I bought this after watching the anime series. I am a big fan of the show but even bigger fan of the books. One thing I love about the books is they give you some more insight into the characters thoughts and relationships. If you liked the show I recommend picking this up for at least a novel or two.

Great Start to a Series


This is a fun fantasy series with a lot of heart that gets way better with each volume. The world building and fight scenes. are great!

Like a "stuck in a video game" series, only in this case it's all about the NPCs

by -

This is a medieval fantasy / comedy with video game mechanics. And bureaucracy. And the gods creating the sorts of drama only they can dream up.

Instead of people from our world, we have the gods from "the upper world" who have entered the "lower world" for fun, adding the video game mechanics as a way to strengthen the people who join forces with them. This world has monsters, and the strength is needed to maintain safety.

Unfortunately, gods are fickle, and not always mentally stable.

Gods are seen from Greco-Roman, Hindu, Norse and Irish pantheons. Some liberties are taken with the mythology.

Despite the title, there's no illustrations to keep you from reading this in public. Bell is ALMOST as pure as Dudley Do-Right. Sure, he wants to find a girl in the dungeon, but it's not clear if he knows what to do if he gets one.

Book 1 is mostly happy-happy, but there's one very dark character, and from having seen the anime, it doesn't stay 100% happy.
