Sandbags and people with shovels? Park an industrial wood chipper at each dungeon entrance. If monsters want to come out to play they can come out as sausage filling.

And yet they are using IC cards for transactions (meaning internet connectivity). World building is really wacky in this one.

@Luftwaffles27 Japan's military doesn't have a lot of guns because it doesn't need them. They are not allowed to mobilize out side Japan. Hence why it's called the "Japanese SelfDefense Force" and not the 'Army'. I don't know how much that still holds true to the manga, but also, it looks like electricity is 'scarce', at least in Japan, so things getting international makes little sense until that is settled.

@WillLi They should ask for help from the US (even the minors use guns, though not against the monsters). In fact, why not get a whole chapter dedicated to seeing the status of all the countries of the world. Saudi Arabia makes the flame troops plausible in a semi-apocalyptic world with all that O-I-L. Russia and the Slavic nations may have hardbass playing in the background while throwing molotov cocktails at the monsters. China and India could create a stampede of their own with their population sizes and all (also China does a 'No U' on the monsters and eat them). Australia wouldn't change much at all, just more monsters in the local wild life. Vietnam could have its citizens out-stealth the monsters in forest locations. The monsters may just starve to death in Africa. Canada befriends the monsters. Italy switches sides to the monsters. Sweden just grabbed some popcorn and remained neutral in the situation. Any more ideas for the other countries?

@dudsuper8 I don't think you get what I'm saying. Japan's military has guns. That's not the problem. the problem is the military that was at the MC's town, wasn't deployed for the stampede, they were already there. And it's possible the military didn't view the "arrival of a new dungeon that was reported as "Nothing is coming out of it" as a case that warranted guns, so they might've gotten sent -without- any major guns. And now that the stampede hits, they can't exactly leave to go get guns, and since stampedes are happening everywhere reinforcements would be sent to other places, not here. And if the soldiers here also don't use their guns much and didn't get a huge amount of gun training, the few pistols they might have, they wouldn't use cause they don't feel confident in firing them.

ammo is finite yes, but considering the fact that stampedes are extremely dangerous, and they still have oil reserves (one would expect japan, a country with no oil for itself, would no longer have gas considering post apocalyptic nature) i would go so far as to assume theyd have ammo, considering militaries keep very LARGE stockpiles of ammo for this reason alone. and even in the critical areas there seems to be no guns being used. seems like a plothole/shoddy writing to me

i dont know, still doesnt make sense. even with strict gunlaws the people would expect to have guns no matter what is the military. i know in singapore thry have strict restrictions on the military, but they're still allowed to carry assault rifles, albeit with only ~7 rounds. id expect they keep some guns in an armoury under lock and key to be given out in a situation like this, since it seems like stampedes like this happen considering how the response is organized and whatnot. it just doesnt make sense for the military to not have the equipment that makes them a military force.

That's where you are wrong: if you go read the first chapter, you will see that "adventurer" is a job issued by the government, and that killing monsters is a job requirement. From what we can see, they are part of the self defense force, and they are required to fight in stampede.

It's a bit like saying you want to be a policeman because you like to carry a gun, but then you don't want to patrol the streets or fight robberies because it's a chore and people should be strong enough to solve their own problems : I'd say you are an asshole and a parasite

Fine then. How about pneumatic crossbows or that one custom bow called the "Instant Legolas"? You could probably make them with the technology and resources at hand (especially the Instant Legolas) and bolts and arrows can be reused if they didn't break on impact. Let's also scale down chemical warfare to less potent options such as tear gas so there's less risk in dying with or without a gas mask. Basically small scale stuff.

Though after seeing the state of that one city (Shinjuku) being overrun, I don't see any other options than rallying really strong adventurers or having the country get nuked a third time to retaliate against that.

There is no combination of Magic and science here. They barely understand much of magic in the first place. It's almost considered a rumor officially. And Magic can't be used so easily outside of the dungeons. It's why Karen tried to use magic in this chapter but couldn't.
Also things like radiation, poison, and flame are clearly not advisable. Not only would you make the dungeons hard to occupy for people, you would contaminate a place to get some desperately needed resources or destroy those resources.
When it comes to what they can and can't do, they are legit walking blind.
And these dungeons started to pop up 5 years ago. So everyone is still fumbling around trying to get the world on track.

@Trov There has to be some kind of special forces within the government or military that uses things like enchanted Type 89's (basically JSDF's standard issue rifle but magical). They can be prioritized over other units in that they're the first to be provided with the scarce ammunition and resources available and, hopefully, manufactured.

Just imagine a special forces group wearing gas masks, camouflaged suits enchanted with all the protective and stealthy magic you can think of, a large variety of grenades to choose from, and automatic anti-material rifles ripping dungeon monsters to pieces like tissue paper, and then ripping those pieces like smaller tissue paper, then repeat ad infinitum until you get a dungeon monster smoothie.

Thinking about the things humans can do with chemistry (and maybe some creativity), is burning dungeon monsters (with napalm, promethium, gasoline, etc.) a violation in the Geneva Convention? How about gassing them? Melting them with acid? R-A-D-I-A-T-I-O-N?

Wasn't this the manga where guns had no or little affect on monsters or was it another one?
I can see that the MC is going battle manic more and more as the manga goes on, I wonder where that leads.

Also it has been established that Mage girl can only use Magic inside the dungeons like MC's status panel.
The lining was great in this chapter, especially the fight between the Boss and MC.

The shopkeeper is selfish as it was shown before and only does things for profit essentially. So I see why she did what she did, however I wonder if this will be a point of tension / drama between her and the MC or town. We don't really know how the organizations and the JSDF work with each other and to what extent.
