@alu she is wisely deciding to stay quiet so she can sell juicy intel to the information brokers, and possibly even country.

I’m so confused haha, is this child Nargoa the past of the one who killed the hero? Is he the reincarnation of that one?

I wanna know what happened to his underlings back at his dungeon.
Probably got obliterated after the Hero returned for a payback, but still.

The thing that puts me off about this (and similar manga) is when they hyper humanise the monsters.

These guys are still going around slaughtering humans but they’re cool he’s just an old guy not being paid overtime or getting his health benefits.
The act of random slaughter is evil but your also asked to root for them as normal folk, not much comfort to the humans tho.

Let’s remember if he wasn’t reincarnated both he as a child and that girl would have literally been torn apart.

It just asks too much of me for the escapism to work.

I hate when mangakas draw their MCs with the now typical uninterested look on their face while they perform well above average feats.
It started with One Punch Man and it was great in that, but with every "OP" manga that comes out they feel the need to give their MCs the look of Saitama without any of the character.

The only reason I'm not dropping this yet is because I believe I'll see bat girl again.

normally in fantasy stories its "i won't kill any humans, they're precious and deserves to live" while always slaughtering monsters without hesitation yet here it's the opposite "this monster tried to torture me to death, better he nice and talk about him dungeon and give him some tips" guess he's 100% against killing monsters while ready to kill any human that comes his way.

At this point the girl behind must be like "I knew something was wrong with breakfast mushrooms"

@Add1152000 It's a bit of a trope, but I think this manga follows what a lot of other dungeon master reversed stories are doing...that being that demons aren't active antagonists.

Oh sure, they kill anyone who who enters their territory, and the demon lord apparently has a roaming party that goes out to fight heroes...but basically there doesn't seem to be random acts of violence here. They're protecting the tower essentially, and there's probably something integral to the world up there. The humans as a whole know the 'rules', they enter the demon's domains, they can expect a fight to the death. It's just fair in that as long as its a human, doesn't matter if its a hero or a kid.

Adventurers and dungeon monsters both seem to garner employment from this...which as a system isn't actually unprecedented. Flower Wars instigated by the Aztecs were formalized wars where each side literally would kill each other for training, or take captives to use them as sacrifice, and served as a bedrock of society's functions. They even had laws regarding employment, which extended to warriors, even in this context. For less formal and more chaotic examples, levied armies in the 100 Years War in France was, at the solider level, simply an opportunity to move up the equivalent of the "corporate" ladder at the time once they got back home.

It only doesn't work if you simply cannot accept that killing can be a respectable and societal approved profession.
