Introduction

Over a million copies total for the series in print! The first Grand Prize winner of the GA Bunko Awards, “Is It Wrong of Me to Hope I Meet Someone Inside a Dungeon?

Story

Oralio, the labyrinth city –

A giant city that houses an enormous underground labyrinth known as the “Dungeon”. Excitement of the unknown, glorious fame, and a romance with a cute girl. In this location where all dreams and desires of humans lie in waiting, a boy meets one small “god”.

The destined crossing of a boy longing to be an adventurer that was turned away by every “Familia”, and a god that had zero subservient members.

This is a “story of one's family (Familia Myth)” that the boy traverses through and the goddess records…
