DanMachi Light Novel Volume 10 Cover Art

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.
The boy was forced to come to a difficult decision in the turbulent Orario.

Aspirations and Monsters, reality and ideals, heroes and sinners.
In the gap between humanity and Monsters, Bell-
"You're really a fool..."

Trial Illustrations


The Loki Familia currently has 7 Level 6 (which is probably everyone except Lefiya) after their latest expedition (still a long ways off in the Sword Oratoria volumes)

Freya knows what's happening but decides to stay put

The separate entrance is shown and is man made

The Minotaur is confirmed to be the one Bell fought through its fighting style

Wiene was killed but was reborn somewhere (it's a place name I assume was newly introduced this volume)

Ikelos was forced to take the blame and was kicked out of Orario

Bell tried protecting an out of control Wiene from the Loki Familia by claiming she was his prey while citizens were watching, causing everyone to think he was a self centered adventurer working for his own desires. Parts of the city were also destroyed, furthering their view against him

Volume 11 will apparently be about Bell redeeming himself with Hermes' help


1 Hestia SS: While listening to the report after the events in volume 9, Hestia misunderstands the part about Arles and believes that she has the body shape of a woman, causing her to tell Bell that she won't approve of any relationship between them

2 Wiene SS: The Xenos try to get Wiene to stop crying after Bell and the others leave in volume 9. They almost succeed until Gros' comment, at which point she begins crying again, forcing them to use the Almiraj Xenos as a replacement for Bell

3 Haruhime SS: Haruhime is trying to stop herself from crying about Wiene while on Bell's bed and everyone except Bell thinks that she's in heat

4 Mikoto SS: Mikoto is nervous after parting with Wiene and is comforted by the Takemikazuchi Familia
