Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? IV Part 2 Episode 7

Reinforcements Arrive

Two sets of reinforcements arrive to help Bell’s party in DanMachi IV Part 2 Episode 7. First, the Xenos appeared. Among their ranks were Wiene, Lyd, and Gros — and others who aren’t important enough for me to look up the names of.

If the Xenos were the only reinforcements, that would have been enough. They’re strong and there are quite a few of them. But, the issue with the Xenos is that they’re monsters. Not everyone in Bell’s party knows the Xenos exist. So, to them, it’s unclear what these armed monsters are doing.

We know the Hestia Familia members of Bell’s party are aware of the Xenos. However, those outside the Hestia Familia don’t. That includes Aisha (I believe), Cassandra, Daphne, Chigusa, Ouka, and Bors. I don’t remember why these adventurers can’t be told about the Xenos. But, they can’t, for some reason.

The second set of reinforcements is Tsubaki’s party. Anya, Chloe, and Runoa are all level 4, which is the same as Aisha. And we know Aisha is strong, so having them there is great for Bell’s party. Tsubaki’s level wasn’t mentioned, so I’m assuming she’s not the same level.

Based on what we saw of her in action, and the fact she’s the party leader, I’ll assume she’s level 5. Also, she’s the captain of the Hephaestus Familia. I’d expect a Familia captain to be a higher level. So, again, even if these were the only reinforcements, they’d probably be enough.

But, as with the Xenos, there’s a reason why they weren’t the only reinforcements. They’re coming into this situation blind. The Xenos, however, have a vast information network. It’s only thanks to the Xenos (Marie) that the party has any idea Bell and Ryuu are in the deep floors.

Grinding Levels in the Deep Floors

Meanwhile, in the deep floors, Bell and Ryuu are fighting for their lives. But, things aren’t looking as bad as they were only an episode ago. Thanks to Ryuu’s instruction, Bell is quickly learning to fight more efficiently. He’s not wasting as much energy with his movements.

In a lot of ways, the fighting we saw Bell doing in this episode was more like a training arc. He’s going to come out of this battle with a better understanding of how to fight strong monsters. And it looks like he’s going to put that knowledge to the test next week.

With all this training in mind, it wouldn’t surprise me if Bell levels up in the deep floors. We know he has a special ability that allows him to level up faster than normal. I don’t remember what the multiplier is, so let’s say he levels up twice as fast.

Something else I don’t remember is who knows about his leveling ability. Hestia does, obviously. But, I don’t remember if any of the other Hestia Familia members do. If he levels up in the deep floors, Ryuu could be the first non-god to learn of his secret.

And even if the other Hestia Familia members know about it, Ryuu could be the first outsider. This would be interesting because of the relationship Bell and Ryuu are developing. As Bell said in one of the previous episodes, it’s like Ryuu is Bell’s master and Bell is Ryuu’s apprentice.

Assuming this relationship persists, it would make sense for her to know his secret. That could make training him easier. Also, if she was training him, she’d likely start to notice that he gains experience faster than others. In fact, she’s already starting to notice that here.

Escape Through the Colosseum

At the end of the episode, we see Bell and Ryuu make their way to the standard route. That means Ryuu now knows where they are and they can begin moving up the dungeon floors. But, there’s something called the Colosseum in their way.

So, what is the Colosseum? I don’t know.

But, we have some context clues to go on, so let me lay out a theory for you. The first clue is that we know the adventurers who got stuck on this floor turned away from the Colosseum. So, whatever it is, we can assume they couldn’t get passed/through.

Initially, Ryuu was wondering what could have caused them to turn back from this path. But, since she’s familiar with the Colosseum, we have to assume she now knows. So, the next question is, does she think she and Bell can make it through?

If the answer is yes (which I assume it will be), then we’ll see them take on the Colosseum. If the answer is no, then they’ll have to come up with another plan to escape the deep floors. Considering we just got a little training episode for Bell, I’m going to guess they can do it.

So, let’s go back to the original question. What is the Colosseum? This may be a bold assumption, but I don’t think it’s an actual Colosseum. It could be. And Bell and Ryuu might have to fight through rounds of battles to make it through.

However, I’m thinking that the Colosseum is only a name given to this section of the floor by adventurers. With that in mind, it’s likely somewhere with a lot of strong monsters. It might be a monster nest. At the very least, it’s going to involve a lot of fighting.
