Delicious in Dungeon 2024 Tv Show Series Cast Crew Online
Dungeons, Drive-ins, and Dives — I mean, Delicious in Dungeon’s second episode “Roast Basilisk/Omelet/Kakiage” has dropped and TRIGGER sure is cooking even harder than before. The focus is mainly on Marcille and Chilchuck and their roles within the adventuring party. Additionally, we get a deeper look into the monsters that lurk around the dungeon in all their glory. “Hot Pot/Tart” served as a wonderful appetizer for this week’s “Roast Basilisk/Omelet/Kakiage” main course.
Audiences already know that Marcille is the party’s mage, but the first half of “Roast Basilisk/Omelet/Kakiage” highlights her abilities and weaknesses. It’s not rare for anime to show a character feeling left out or useless, but Marcille’s way of showing it is extremely relatable. Despite trying her best to get involved, her ideas are shot down until she ultimately decides to take things into her own hands which leaves her shaken up and confused. The scene uses humor to keep the situation light even as she reveals what’s bothering her to Laios and Chilchuck. The humor doesn’t underscore the seriousness of the discussion either. In fact, I think it adds another layer to who the trio is — they’ve known each other for a long time, so this shouldn’t be the first time this sort of conversation has come up. That lightheartedness comes through with how Laios assures Marcille that even if she’s not helping that much on the earlier levels of the dungeon, her and her magic are extremely helpful in the lower levels.
On the other hand, Chilchuck’s role within the party revolves specifically around traps. Laios and Marcille listen to everything he says when it comes to traps, knowing that it’s his specialty. His ability to find the hidden route doorway via smacking Laios’s sword against the way shows just how skilled he is. Furthermore, they follow his instructions to only step where he steps in the trap room once he figures out which stones are the triggers for traps. Despite his young appearance, Chilchuck is experienced enough to do what he loves and to do it well.
Senshi’s stubbornness floating to the top is a major plot in “Roast Basilisk/Omelet/Kakiage.” His desire to create “the perfect meal” trumps anything else that might be going on. When the party is on the second floor and comes across another party with one dying member, at first he refuses to give them the antidote because he was planning to use it for the meal. It’s only after he takes his time cooking does he finally feed the medicine to the other party — the other man does mention how delicious it is, but that doesn’t cancel out how unwilling Senshi was to simply give him the antidote. Additionally, he butts heads with Chilchuck in the trap room where the two of them have a “who’s better at which thing” argument. It’s silly, to say the least, but shows that Senshi isn’t merely a good-natured cook that joined the party.
The animation in Delicious in Dungeon is beyond my imagination. It’s pretty obvious how much love the animation team behind the series has for it. “Roast Basilisk/Omelet/Kakiage” in particular shows this in particular ways such as Mariclle running away from the Basilisk while performing some sick dance moves, Senshi’s preparation and cooking, and even the shot-for-shot scene of Chilchuk checking for traps in. Each scene has an immense amount of intention, dedication, and care behind it. TRIGGER makes it obvious that this anime means a lot to the team that’s producing it — which is something I’m sure Ryoko Kui would have wanted herself. In a time where a lot of anime are being rushed by overworked animators, it’s nice to have a series that seems to care for the source material.
“Roast Basilisk/Omelet/Kakiage” brings the charm from the Delicious in Dungeon manga to our screens. With a focus on Marcillee and Chilchuk, audiences were able to dig deeper into their strengths, weaknesses, and roles within the party. The narrative direction to have these stories unfold through humor made it all the more delightful to watch.
