HIDIVE Review: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Memoria Freese

Maybe you’ve seen the first season of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Maybe you’ve also watched Sword Oratoria, the side-story to Bell’s adventures in Orario’s dangerous dungeon. Maybe you’re streaming the second season right now — but maybe all of that DanMachi just isn’t enough for a hardcore fan like you.

If you feel the need for even more DanMachi in your life, then you’re in luck, because Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Memoria Freese (AKA “DanMemo” or “DanMachi Memoria Freese”) is available to play right now! DanMemo is the ultimate mobile RPG for DanMachi fans, where players can experience the world of DanMachi through stories and characters straight from the anime (as well as some exclusive original tales you won’t find anywhere else). Join Bell, Hestia, Ais and all your favorite characters as they hack and slash their way to glory in this turn-based, dungeon-crawling mobile game that will level up your DanMachi knowledge in no time flat.

Gameplay & Leveling

The gameplay in DanMachi Memoria Freese is relatively simple. Once you pick your party members (obtained through in-story events as well as a gacha roulette), you can follow stories in rookie missions, daily missions, or character-specific quests and battle it out in the dungeon below Orario. Moving through the dungeon and the turn-based combat encounters is as straightforward as it is engrossing, and time flies as you take down groups of enemies while you follow the game’s many and varied storylines. (Trust us, we got lost in this game for hours).

The auto-movement and auto-battle features streamline combat even further, so if you’re looking to advance quickly through the story, these features should not be overlooked. However, just be mindful of your stamina; each mission costs stamina to undertake, and you have a limited daily amount of stamina points to spend.

By completing quests, you level up your characters and earns items to unlock new characters, items and equipment. It should come as no surprise that customization of your party (made up of both support characters and heroes) is super flexible, allowing for a huge range of combinations to maximize your dungeon crawling experience.

And speaking of characters: Leveling them up happens on a variety of fronts. Not only can you level up characters’ strength, combat abilities and dexterity, you can also level up your relationships with characters through “character points,” too! These points are earned by conversing with characters in town, which unlocks new interactions and storylines unique to them, which in turn allows you to earn even more items and currency. Score!

Story & Characters

But aside from items, currency and quests, why should you spend time chatting with the characters of DanMachi Memoria Freese? Earning character points doesn’t just unlock items — it unlocks character voice messages, costumes and new dialogue, too! And the Japanese voice acting is fantastic, bringing DanMemo’s 2D sprites to life thanks to the voice actors’ spirited line delivery.

Cool as that is, interacting with characters in-game actually has an even more important benefit: Widening the world of DanMachi as a whole. Although some of the stories in DanMachi Memoria Freese retread the scenarios we all know and love from the first season of DanMachi, one of DanMemo’s greatest strengths is the amount of worldbuilding it accomplishes. The game even spends time with characters who don’t get spotlit as much as POV-characters like Bell and Hestia.

The world comes alive quest by quest, growing right before your eyes as the game adapts content from the light novels as well as brand new exclusive side stories unique to DanMachi Memoria Freese itself. This makes DanMemo rewarding for both new and old fans alike because the game has something to offer fans no matter the depth of their franchise knowledge.
