When young adventurer Laios and his company are attacked and soundly thrashed by a dragon deep in a dungeon, the party loses all its money and provisions. They’re eager to get right back to it, but there’s just one problem: if they set out with no food or coin to speak of, they’re sure to eat it on the way! But Laios comes up with a brilliant idea: ‘Let’s eat the monsters!’ Slimes, basilisks, mimics, and even dragons…none are safe from the appetites of these dungeon-crawling gourmands!
Volume 8 of the manga will be released in Japan on September 14, volume 7 will be released in English on October 29 from Yen Press.
