Call To Adventure! Defeating Dungeons With A Skill Board manga by Aki Hagiu and Renji Kuriyama and based on the web novels has been licensed by Seven Seas Entertainment for an English translation.
The manga follows 27-year-old Karaboshi Haruki who sets out to become an adventurer after a number of dungeons and the monsters that dwell within them have suddenly appeared in the modern world.
The story takes place five years after these dungeons have arrived and a number of everyday citizens have taken up the task of becoming adventures, diving into the dungeons and slaying the beasts within.
Haruki is a rookie adventure, who doesn’t really stand a chance against the more season veterans. However, a new dungeon has popped up right beneath his home. Not only does this new dungeon show up beneath his home, but he also discovers a Skill Board that allows him to become even stronger at a much quicker pace.
The official description begins, “In a time when dungeons and monsters have appeared in our world, a struggling modern adventurer finds a fantasy dungeon–and a special treasure–under his Hokkaido home!”
It continues, “It’s been five years since strange dungeons opened up around the Earth, spilling monsters into our world. Average citizens everywhere have risen to the challenge to become adventurers, fighting these fantasy creatures and clearing out dungeons as best they can.”
“Among them is Karaboshi Haruki, a 27-year-old rookie overlooked by everyone and…less than successful at beating monsters and finding treasure. Unsure how he can compete with much more powerful adventurers, an opportunity is dropped into his lap–a dungeon suddenly appears right beneath his home! Could this be a place for him to train? Even better, he discovers a Skill Board that allows him to level up faster! The dungeon-diving adventures Haruki has always dreamed of are just getting started,” it concludes.
Call to Adventure! Defeating Dungeons with a Skill Board arrives in North America sometime in August 2021. It will retail for $12.99 in the United States.
