DANMACHI SEASON 5 PLOT
In the final episode of season four, “Endless(brutal),” Ryu is defeated by the Juggernaut, but she manages to save Bor. Bell is healed by the mermaid s’ blood and fights back the monster.
In the process of controlling the Juggernaut, Jura is killed while Ryu and Bell are swallowed by the Lambton.
The dungeon collapses, leading to a confrontation on Bell‘s part with the monster on the 27th floor. Bell and Ryu escape the Lambton but arrive at the 37th floor, known infamously as the “White Place.
Danmachi season 4 is expected to end on Volume 15 of the light novel, which means DanMachi Season 5 characters and plotlines will pick up from Volume 16 and cover till Volume 18.
Bell realizes the threat isn’t just limited to the dungeon but also around women as he gets invited at the goddess festive to accompany Syr as her date. Even before Bell can respond, he is kidnapped by Hedin, who is tasked to convince Bell to the festival and also shape him into a gentleman within a week.
Hedin s’ training bears fruit as Bell impresses Syr not just with his behavior but also his bravery when he fights off a thief who tries to steal her handbag.
Despite being well-shaped and coached by Hedin, Bell fails to interact correctly with other women, which leaves Syr frustrated.
Bell lets her know that his ‘master’ didn’t prepare him for such a situation, and consequently, Syr realizes that Bell is dressed like Hedin. While initially shocked at the personal training Bell received, Syr is impressed by Bell s’ efforts to make a date look promising.
Syr forgives him but in exchange asks him to help her escape the Freya Familia. Will Bell be successful in this new mission? We’d have to wait for DanMachi Season 5 to provide the answers.
