The Dungeon of Black Company
Aliases: Meikyuu Black Company Studio: SILVER LINK. Adaptation: Manga Genres: Comedy, Fantasy Episodes: ? Release Date: Jul 9, 2021 to ? Streaming: ,
Plot: Kinji, who lacks any kind of work ethic, is a layabout in his modern life. One day, he finds himself transported to another world–but not in a grand fantasy of a hero welcomed with open arms. He’s immediately shoved into a terrible job! Now enslaved by an evil mining company in a fantasy world, Kinji’s about to really learn the meaning of hard work!
I get Kamina vibes from the protagonist though this one is scummier. As he has reached his dream of being an uber neet, he is isekai'd into fantasy world where the adventurers and dungeon conqueroring adventurers cease and now people are mining dungeons for minerals in a black company fashion.
I did not expect to laugh a lot. I wonder how long will this show keep my attention. It seems like a one trick pony.
Christopher Escalante as Kinji Katelyn Barr as Rim Stephen Sanders as Wanibe Sarah Roach as Belza Monica Rial as Narrator Jim Foronda as Goblin Boss Cris George as Rim (Dragon) Ian Sinclair as Saruyama R. Bruce Elliot as Skeleton Senpai
300 years in the future, the Raiza something overmined the ruins, bringing "ruination". The demon lord who is Rim's sister and replacement (hastily) asked Ninomiya if he wants to go back to Earth or go back to the past in order to prevent the tragedy.
Ninomiya has ulterior motives, world domination and dystopia under his name.
Missed something to comment on Ep. 7. Rim and Ranga had an interesting relationship. It was the first time Rim expressed interest in something other than food. Ranga bought clothes for Rim who saw something she liked.
It was the first time there was a touching moment in this dirty isekai series.
Ep 9 Shia pretty much summarize Ninomiya which is at end of the episode. Ninomiya cannot honestly help other people. In this episode, we help two women: 1) a dead/ghost mage who revealed to be a woman after passing on - her story reveals the truth. She was abandoned or betrayed by the hero who stole the credit for defeating the dragon. The hero ran off with the princess too. 2) the potion shop girl who wanted to save the shop she inherited from her father. She was forced to sell the ghost mage potions. Ninomiya uses the grass to add "addition/hypnosis" to sell the potions which made the company prohibit the sales later.
We meet the 2nd Majin who was born when Rim leaves the dungeon. Sky is her new name, given by Rim after easing her fever episode. Ninomiya and the gang meet the ant queen (who can shapeshift to a human woman) were trying to correct the mana flow.
This episode is pretty much Rim's character development.
Felt like it was the last episode. Ninomiya with the group and a young man who was wavering between his loyalties to Belza or Ninomiya reach the final part of the floor.
Ninomiya taps into the artifact and gained the power to manage the dungeons mana. He develops a strategy of using them as amusement parks, Ninomiya Dungeon Land, where monsters and adventurers work together.
Ninomiya pushes Belza's company into declining financial situation as Ninomiya takes more of the market share, pushing them out of business.
Belza thought she lost everything until she sees Shia's profile paper.
Taka: Never saw the original. I should after seeing the other one. People said Blood+ was the better one.

Old Man Dream: Look on Tubi. The whole series is up on it and yes, it's the best of the Blood anime that have been made. The movie adaptation, Blood: The Last Vampire, and later spinoff, Blood-C, don't hold a candle to it.

Master Menos: Seen them all actually, and I loved Blood+ the best, too. Would totally re-watch.

Taka: I remember watching Devils' Line. I can't remember any issues I had. I have to look at my comments.

Old Man Dream: One of those familiar vampire stories in a modern setting where the male lead hates himself because of his vampiric nature and is in love with a human woman. The execution of the whole story is pretty clumsy and from what I gather, the anime is...

Old Man Dream: ...rushing through 40 chapters of manga material to fit into 12 anime episodes. Definitely shows with how quickly it's creaming through events, with the main couple being bland between angsty male vampire and the human female devoted to him.

Old Man Dream: Besides that plot, said male lead's involved with a secret government agency tasked with controlling vampires that give into their bloodlust.

Old Man Dream: And adding more insult to injury, the new Injustice animated movie is a big mess.

Taka: I read through my comments. Bloodlust and rapes along with innuendos. The romance I never mentioned of - with the details you mentioned - I remembered now it was pretty bad.

Old Man Dream: I'm thankfully pretty far in the series. Just have 3 more episodes, which I should get taken care of by tomorrow evening. Kind of regret thinking this would be a good title to dabble into for Halloween.

Taka: Didn't catch the Injustice movie. Waiting for it to be digitally available. That's a shame.

Old Man Dream: The movie got leaked online a week early before its release date. The negative reception to it, especially with how regarded the comic book and video game versions of Injustice are, got me curious to see how bad it was. I won't spoil things unlike most...

Old Man Dream: ...folks are unfortunately doing. But I'll just say that it both tries cramming too much into an 80-minute film and alters things rather heavily compared to the game and comics.
Oct 15, 2021 9:19:07 GMT
Taka: That is a shame considering they split Long Halloween into two parts. I guess with Injustice, you are appealing to 3 groups: the video game folks, the comic book folks, and then the new fans.
Oct 16, 2021 5:59:49 GMT
Old Man Dream: It sounds like you're assuming the games and comics run separate stories. The video game series serves as the main story of the franchise, while the comics serve as prequel or interquel to expand on and fill in the details on events that weren't...

Old Man Dream: ...elaborated on within the video games.
