Suzuki Touru has just scored an amazingly cheap apartment–but the reason it’s so cheap is the front door opens up to a classic fantasy dungeon! Luckily, Touru has always wanted to explore a dungeon. But when he stumbles across Ria, a beautiful blonde knight, he may well have gotten more adventure than he bargained for!


Ahh! This manga is so cute. It’s a fairly typical isekai EXCEPT Suzuki Touru isn’t transported to or trapped in the fantasy world, he just has access to it through his new apartment! I love that his apartment is still grounded in the real world but he basically has access to the fantasy world like those snotty kids getting to Narnia through the back of their closet. And when he bring Ria, a fantasy knight, back to his apartment she gets to experience what his world is like. Would that make it sort of a reverse isekai as well, then?

This is just so funny, with Touru bringing various things over into the dungeon and experimenting with his stats and how leveling up in the dungeon effects his real world body. I can’t wait for volume 2 and to meet our new slime friend!
