I've heard of Drifting Dragons before. It revolves around people hunting and eating dragons, so it might be a bit like Delicious in Dungeon. Apparently there's some controversy over the story's depiction of dragon hunting being similar to whale hunting, though.
Edit: And again, they're not doing a very good job selling people on their digital licenses. Give a summary and talk about it before it's release date!

Actually interested in a good half of these licenses. Good job, Kodansha.

Drifting Dragons is some of the most impressive art I've ever seen in manga.

I feel like the concept was definitely inspired by the success of Delicious in Dungeon, but that series is primarily a cooking manga, and this is primarily character and story driven with the cooking as an aside. The emphasis on how they process the dragons for oil and meat is definitely very much like whaling.

Yay, Living-Room Matsunaga-san !

Kodansha better have a healthy supply of physical shojo releases though. I kinda get Dessert being relegated to digital, but I'm still a little meh on these kind of choices as digital-only, for the most part.
