Comments from BUMP OF CHICKEN about the OP’s implementation were also revealed:
“I love’Dungeon Meshi'(Delicious in the dungeon) very much. I’ve been following it since the beginning and am always eager to read the sequel. When I received the invitation to perform the title song, I was extremely happy and honored. At the same time, I feel extremely excited knowing that the unique and special world and story will be recreated in the anime, and the day I can see it all on screen is truly thrilling. I poured all my emotions into music.
I’m looking forward to watching the opening video. I’ve never eaten dungeon food before and it’s a bit scary, but I want to give it a try. Or maybe it looks absolutely delicious and I want to try it. I am eagerly waiting for the broadcast to see how different dishes are portrayed in the anime.”

Dungeon Meshi (Delicious In Dungeon) is a manga series written and illustrated by Ryoko Kui. The series is published in Kadokawa’s Haruta magazine. It began serialization in February 2014, with chapters collected into 12 tankobon volumes.
It was nominated for the Manga Taisho award twice, in 2016 and 2019, and won the 2016 Kono Manga ga Sugoi list.
Yen Press has licensed the series in North America. They describe the manga’s plot as follows:
When young adventurer Laios and his companions are attacked and severely beaten by a dragon deep in a dungeon, the party loses all their money and provisions…and one member! They’re eager to go back and save her, but there’s just one problem: If they set out without food or coins to speak of, they’ll surely starve to death on the way! But Laios comes up with a great idea: “Let’s eat the monsters!” Slimes, basilisks, and even dragons…no one is safe from the appetites of these dungeon-crawling gourmands!
