    5 YEARS AFTER ~Side Ais~, SS from the DanMachi 5th Anniversary Campaign

    Note: The author differentiates between the current Ais and the dream Ais. The dream Ais is written normally as Ais but the current Ais is referred to with the word "girl" with Ais as the rubi.

    This is a dream.
    Ais realized it instantly.
    A slightly more grown up Ais was on a journey with Riveria.
    It was somewhere other than Orario. They climbed hills, admired the beautiful great plains, and headed for the village with a windmill that was off in the distance. The sky was clear, peaceful, and gentle.
    As Riveria suddenly narrowed her eyes next to her, Ais lips bent in a smile, and the two laughed like a real mother and daughter.
    It was a blissful dream.

    This is a dream.

    A Certain Pub's Sequel (とある酒場の後日談), SS from DanMachi Light Novel Volume 5

    A night had passed since Ryuu returned from the 18th Floor. After rescuing Bell and the others, she had returned to the Hostess of Fertility.
    "You're pretty unlucky to have to work so soon after coming back"
    "That's not it, Lunoire. This is my actual job, I can't be negligent about it"
    "You're really the way, Mama Mia was in a bad mood after you left, so you should probably stay away from her for a while"
    Early that morning, as Ryuu was preparing the pub while talking with Lunoire and Arnya, she knew she had to apologize to Mia. She knew she caused trouble for Lunoire and the others as well.
    Immediately after she returned, Ryuu reported Bell and the others' re…

    "Hey Bell, we heard that you peeked. Why didn't you take us with you?"
    "Huh?" Bell froze after hearing Welf's words.
    Bell had been stopped by Welf on his way back to the tent after apologizing to Hestia and the others. Behind him, Ouka, with his arms folded, nodded in agreement.
    "W-What are you saying, Welf...?"
    "What else would I be talking about? I'm saying that we wanted to peek on them bathing too. Right?"
    "Yeah, I wish I could've seen it too"
    Ouka strongly agreed once again to Welf's words. The two were hitting it off well, stating that peeking was a man's romance, even though they weren't that friendly with each other previously, and seeing this made Bell's face tense. "That…

    Ryuu apologized to Mia and entered the crowded Hostess of Fertility.
    As she had just returned from the dungeon after taking a half holiday due to accepting Bell's request, Ryuu decided she would work hard to make up for the trouble she'd caused.
    "Hey, Elf. You were a great help today"
    While she was dealing with customers, Ryuu narrowed her eyes at the person that'd just come inside. "You're..."

    Sword Princess VS City Girl (剣姫VS街娘), SS from DanMachi Light Novel Volume 9

    "Ah..." "...?"
    Raising her head due to hearing a voice from ahead of her, Ais saw a light gray haired girl in front of her.
    It was past noon on a certain day. Hearing that a "new Jagamarukun store had opened", Ais had been in the process of making her way through the city to check it out.
    The girl, whose eyes were the same color as her hair, widened them out of surprise, and Ais tilted her head until she realized who the girl was.
    She was an employee at the Hostess of Fertility pub that the Loki Familia often visited. If she remembered correctly, her name was Syr. It took her a while to figure it because Syr was wearing a straw hat, a clean white dress, and was carrying…

    Haruhime, dressed in her maid outfit, was walking down a hallway in the mansion.
    It was the day after the Hestia Familia parted with the Xenos and returned to the surface. The Hestia Familia home, the Hearth Mansion, was filled with feelings of sorrow and emptiness because the dragon girl had gone. Bell, Hestia and the others, and even Haruhime were fighting with indescribable feelings of loneliness.
    She was like a little sister.
    She said Haruhime, Haruhime.
    She repeatedly said her name, followed her, played with her, and at times hugged to feel each other's warmth. Even though she was a monster, the time they spent together was real, and Haruhime fe…

    The Xenos arrived at their "hidden village" on the 27th Floor. Marie, the Mermaid Xenos, welcomed back the beautiful Siren Ray and the others. Each "hidden village" had a Xenos stationed there who acted as a guardian. The one on the 20th Floor was guarded by a Green Dragon, and the one here was guarded by Marie.
    After coming back from fulfilling Fels' request, Ray and the others stopped by the 27th Floor.

    I looked around.
    It was an elegant room that was based on the color white. The place is unfamiliar to me. I notice that I'm also wearing a white tuxedo.
    I spaced out for a moment, however-
    "-Bell? Is something wrong?"
    Seeing "her" wearing a beautiful pure white dress and holding a bouquet of bright flowers, I smiled.
    (Ah, that's right. I'm finally-)
    Yes, I'm about to get married.
    On this very day, 5 years after I first met "her".

     The city residing above the Dungeon is a deathtrap to anyone living there. Now Orario isn't the worst fantasy city to live in, like let’s say Kings Landing from A Song of Fire and Ice or a large portion of Warhammer's living arrangements. Comparing the sunny looking Orario to the many dark drenched cities of other fantasy novels isn't a fair comparison. Same genre but different take. However, Orario may not appear to be a hellhole but it can certainly be that way for many of the citizens living there. The problems that plague Orario is ironically not from the Dungeon that spawns an infinite number of bloodthirsty monsters from its dark depths, but the people living above. With no real government, people with questionable moral values imbu…

  • Oreo the Cookie

    So, this is my own Ais theory. I felt like I should make one after writing it out on Angelo Gabrini's Ais Theory Blog.

    This is my theory.

    Remember, Bell never knew about Ais' personal history; he only read the Dungeon Oratoria, which had a mention of Albert having a child. If Ais really was the child of Aria and Albert, then she must be over a 1000 years old, since the Black Dragon was forced into the skies during Ancient Times.

    And since Ais was probably only 6 or 7 years old when her parents vanished, and over a 1000 years has passed since they did, Ais has be 1006 years old; but she isn't! She's actually 16 years old, so there would be an approximately 990 year gap between the two times. There are two solutions to solving this gap: 1. A S…

    Note: This was originally Cloudmaster9000's blog that I had to recreate as my blog due to technical reasons. All information shown here is speculation and is not fact unless confirmed by canon material

    This post attempts to guess what the 'overall stats' are, specifically how much level-up affects stats.

    There are two ways I will guess that levelling up might affect stats, static and proportional. The author might have chosen something more exotic, but lets hope he didn't so the guesswork is easy. Static assumes than some LvlBonus number is added to every single stat upon level up, whereas proportional would multiply the stats gained at that level by some static amount LvlBonus.

    having at least 1 lv3 adventurer grants to the familia the rank E.

    having at least 1 lv4 adventurer grants to the familia the rank D.

    DanMachi 8 Review

    April 18, 2017 by Angelo Gabrini

    Information will be added once I've taken a look at the volume

    Chapter Titles: The only complaint I have is the lack of consistency between chapters 1 and 3 and chapter 6. I know the title for chapter 6 is slightly different but you might as well use the same words as the similar titles

    Character List: Lili is still listed as a member of the Soma Familia even though the Japanese version changed this in volume 7

    Story: I'm going to skip most of it since I could care less about Mikoto, Lili, Welf, and Eina.

    As usual Yen Press has its problem of using Japanese words when it's totally unnecessary like tenkai and andango. I still don't understand why they're calling Finn "general" either, and like last volume they're using defense instead of endura…

    Theory About Ais

    April 13, 2017 by Angelo Gabrini

    I've been thinking about this and wanted to post my theory about Ais:

    Ais might be a Demi Spirit like the ones the Loki Familia's been fighting, except that instead of a monster, it's attached itself onto a Human. When the Loki Familia encountered the one in volume 4, no one recognized it as a Spirit except for Ais, even though Spirits are like Gods in which people can tell if they meet one. Ais has Spirit level magic and beauty, yet she's considered to be a Human, so it's similar. Since Spirits can't have children, this works as a way around it

    Aside from her parents being Albert and Aria, I believe that her reaction to the Demi Spirit and her behavior when Revis mentioned Aria prove that it's more than simply having Spirit blood like Welf.…

    Chapter Titles: Chapter 3: "Gekai Detective Loki". Really? I hate their use of tenkai/gekai as much as using Kenki. I also disagree with using "average" for chapter 1 but that's not really important

    Color Pages: Again, they're still using "field general" for Finn like last volume, and why is Ais a "knight"? She's a swordsman. They're also using "top class" for Tiona when it should be "first class". The second color page is fine

    DanMachi 7 Review

    December 22, 2016 by Angelo Gabrini

    Here's the continuation of my review of DanMachi 7

    Story: There are some errors like referring to Almiraj (or specifically Al-mi'raj) as Almirage. I don't really understand why they use Business Quarter and Night District but I'll leave it at that. Other than that I don't like how they modified sentences such as Lili mentioning that she did some recon and learned that the news of their debt was spreading, which was turned into buying medicine for Bell. This is the "translation's" main problem. Also, the Divine Knife is supposed to be read as Hestia Knife

    depends on circumstances, bell either gonna join enyo revis or Ais regarding her story,

    we know that Bell wants to help build a world where Xenos and "humans" can coexist in peace, and since, most likely enyo is some sort of xenos, she shares same deam about seeing the sky and the outside world at least. if he can co…

    Making an effort

    December 15, 2016 by DerDoppelganger

    "i like u love Damashi"

    "I, like you, love Danmachi"

    See the difference?

    Now, I'm not pointing at anyone in particular, but could you please make an effort when writing your posts?

    Some of them are quite hard to read, even though the ideas are valid more often than not.

    Showing some consideration for Angelo and us moderators, who have to go through each and every post (with varying degrees of fatigue and sleep deprivation), would be much appreciated.

    It is mostly a matter of spelling (e.g. adventrurer vs adventurer), capitalization (I vs i, proper nouns and the first letter of a sentence / after a period), syntax, punctuation (especially the Oxford Comma) and the much dreaded wall of text.

    It doesn't need to be perfect, since there is a differenc…

    Note: This blog was made in place of DerDoppelganger and is copied from their comment on the Hestia Familia page

    We've discussed who would next join Hestia Familia on many occasions, but since it might be someone yet unknown, the real question is: What are Hestia Familia's needs?

    Bell is a well-balanced speedster with a no-chant magic, who can occupy almost any position in a formation, although he is best suited for the middleguard, since he can move at will between positions. This has affected his status growth, with him having to more or less act as a babysitter for not only Lili and Haruhime, but Welf and Mikoto as well.

    Welf has more than decent destructive power, but relatively low defense and only short-range / melee attacks, leaving hi…

    Soon after their chance meeting with the intellectual Monsters known as Xenos, Bell and Wiene were parted from each other

    As Bell spent days in torment, the creeping hand of darkness was slowly reaching out toward Wiene. And then-

    "A migration of armed Monsters has been confirmed! The Guild will issue a subjugation order!!"
    The die had been thrown by out of control Xenos.
    The trigger was the violent hunters, the cost a disturbance that involved all Familia in the city.

    Out of curiosity, I went to the nearest bookstore today to skim through the translated versions of volumes 1-4. Since I didn't have that much time (and no desire to buy the translated volumes), I only looked over the terminology instead of the actual translation, though I might not have covered everything

    The following is a list of what I had problems with:

    The translation lists the kanji and then the furigana for names which is unnecessary. 英雄願望 is supposed to be read as Argonaut, not "heroic aspiration". I've seen this happen with some manga and it's kind of annoying

    Set and Seti Selty were spelled as Seto and Ceti Selty. I'm sure the translator could've taken the time to search セト and get Set as in the Egyptian God, not something similar t…

    There are Things Even a Saint Doesn't Understand (聖女にもわからないことがある), SS from Sword Oratoria Light Novel Volume 4

    "Um, Airmid...are you busy?"
    The Dian Cecht Familia healer Airmid tilted her neck toward the girl that visited her.
    The sun had already set. While in the process of closing her Familia's store, she was approached by the first class adventurer she was friendly with, and while wondering why she was here she led her to a room to talk with her alone.
    Aiz, who had an expedition several days later, revealed the reason why she visited Airmid this late in the day.
    "Can you teach me how to...treat adventurers' wounds?"
    "Are you referring to first aid? I don't mean to promote sales, but wouldn't a potion work just fine?"
    "I don't want him to use a…

    All Purpose Battle Sales Girl Ais (汎用決戦セールスガール・アイズ), SS from DanMachi Light Novel Volume 4

    "Hello...I'd like a Jagamarukun"
    The Northern Main Street, Jagamarukun stand.
    Hestia made an unpleasant face to the golden haired golden eyed Ais standing in front of her.
    How many times have you come here, Hestia complained in her mind. In fact, ever since she had visited the stand with Bell during their training, she often came by to buy Jagamarukun.
    "Welcome. What's your order?"
    "I'd like one Azuki Cream flavor"
    She asked her rudely because of her hostility but Ais replied nonetheless.
    You sure know your stuff, Hestia thought as she handed her a freshly made Jagamarukun favored by experts. Ais immediately opened her small mouth and began eating. Her beaut…

    Are there any users here who are writing some fanfictions? Isn't there some fanfictions wiki to DanMachi wiki? I mean, there is to some, and DanMachi is pretty interesting, and I'd like to write some fanfiction about it (with original characters), and well... I wrote some fanfiction, and I'd like to write a fanfiction to DanMachi, too.

    P.S. If there is some fanfiction wiki to DanMachi wiki, then please, if you may, would you mind giving a link to it? Thanks up ahead. :)

    (It's gone up a lot...)
    Sitting on Bell Cranel's back, Hestia had a complicated expression while she look down at his status. Two days before the War Game. Taking account of the time necessary to travel the following day, Bell returned to the Miach Familia home, the location the two set as their base.
    Although she didn't ask beforehand, she realized that he must've been trained by Ais considering his large growth. It was similar to the values from Bell's last status update as a Level 1 around a month earlier. Hestia wondered if t…
