so could you say dungeon level (6 or omega) is when the demon breaks out, if we end up a tragedy with Laius freeing the Demon, and thus if strong enough desires feeds the demon to a calamity-like monster that wreaks havoc upon the world.

Elves are right upon concealing information about wish-granting creatures from another dimension, so the higher ups set an demon extermination squad. Though they would have to work against the malignant desires of others placed on the dungeon not knowing the truth yet blinded by the desires.

I remember few volumes ago, forgot if it was on batoto or mangadex, there's people who said that this manga has running out of ideas and will be axed soon. Guess what, the story just expand to another places we never expected before, I doubt it will be completed in mere one or two years.
@bramhistory

Me too, It's just those people can't handle the tragedy part in Farlyn's misfortune who transformed into a chimera or when Farlyn facing Kabru's team, Sureau's team, & Laius's team.

I've met some people who stopped reading this manga because of that part (some finally want to resume the reading because I've managed to convice them that the tragedy part only last about 2 chapters & then back to your usual adventure time), they are not ready to handle that and only want to read the innocent and happy chapters so that's why they called author running out of ideas..

The story of the Ancient harnessing infinite power from another dimension sound similar to the fate of the Protoculture civilization in Macross 7.
They also tried to harness power from Super Dimension. Unfortunately, by doing so, they unexpectedly also drawing the creatures(later called as Protodeviln) from that dimension to our dimension.
Once they get through, they start manipulate & control some Protoculture. Eventually civil war broke out and the Protoculture cease to exist.
The one that still continue that fight again the Protodeviln and their brainwashed followers of Protoculture & Zentraedi(known as the Supervision Army) until now is the Zentraedi(genetically engineered giant clones created by the Protoculture to fight their wars).

If you’d have told me when I started this that this manga about cooking monsters might be fucking tragic and kind of sad I’d have laughed in your face

seems like this page got retroactively rewritten slightly here, since when the bell rang in this chapter kabru and sureau weren't actually together? though they were just a teleportation portal apart, and the fact that laius's party saw a fire there indicates that it was planned for somebody to be traveling ahead of them (kabru/misurn).

That was a real good summary @sssr

The winged lion's true name is Vapula. In demonology Vapula is a lion with the wings of gryphon, perfectly matching the description of the winged lion. Also notice how in a previous chapter the lion doesn't mention it's true name because it said it has neither a true name or form, if it said the name Vapula, Laius who is knowledgeable about monsters and legends would of no doubt heard that name in passing before and would give him some concern or at least be able to discern that it's demonic in origin.

@Syanindita It's already been established that Thistle did create THIS dungeon. The elves knew how to create such dungeons in the past but then banned them when the risks became apparent. Marcille's study in magic school was on how to create dungeons, and she had to go to that school because she couldn't do it in the elven schools (due to the ban).

Also, I think you misunderstood the gist of Misurn's story and what happened to his Canaries (or what Canaries are and why they only react to THIS dungeon now). All dungeon builders in the past were demon summoners who knew full well the risks of summoning a demon. That's why they built the dungeons to imprison the demons they summoned. The dungeon builders (Thistle included) would very rarely fall for the tricks of the demons they summoned because they knew the risks. That's why the demons would grow the dungeon to the point of inviting outsiders in. What the demon is really trying to do is to ultimately invite an outsider ignorant of the secrets of the dungeon but strong enough to displace the builder, thus freeing the demon. Alternatively, like in Misurn's case, the continuous intrusions would vex and weaken the resolve of the dungeon lord to the point that they would drop their guard and allow the demon to feed on them. This is why the Canaries are also worried about Thistle and his complex desires.

The condition that would trigger the deployment of Canaries is the transfer of power in a dungeon. All dungeons invite adventurers, and as those adventurers gain experience and skill, they get closer and closer to being able to reach the heart of the dungeon and the demon imprisoned inside. The dungeon builders knew the risks, but the adventurers don't. So the most dangerous situation emerges when an adventurer gets close to displacing the original master of the dungeon (like Laius has managed now). That's the point at which the elves would dispatch Canaries to stop the transfer of power. It is also the only time they can deploy usefully because it marks the point when the original dungeon builder's power is at its lowest ebb. If they tried moving in before they'd have to both fight the dungeon and compete against the adventurers from scratch. So they just wait for the adventurers to clear most of the monsters and open an easier path. It's also possible that some dungeons are nightmare difficulty so that nobody can ever beat it, so Canaries are never dispatched there. Misurn's original team was deployed during one of these events to overtake whoever it was that was on the verge of displacing the original dungeon lord of the goat's dungeon. They succeeded in doing that, but their stupidly complex relationships hindered their ability to cooperate and opened the door for their greenest member to fall to the goat's temptation. That's the real gist of Misurn's story.

@sssr : I dont think Thistle was the one who created dungeon it the first place (or all dungeon in this world).

Maybe it was long before Thistle era because a lot of ancient people back then did a lot of research to summon infinite energy to the surface but their downside also bring demons too. With one tragedy recorded in manuscript, ancient people created dungeon and their mechanism so the demon can't freely reach the surface to eat people's desire.

Thistle can rules the dungeon because his obsession learning dark magic after King Darghal ask him to study magic (their kingdom probably have a lot of collection of magic books and manuscript from ancient time). That's why Thistle gain knowledge and the weakness of the demon, he was probably ask the demon to created his ideal world (his obsession for Darghal) and at the same time imprison the demon so it can't feed Thistle's desire.. that's why he can rules the dungeon for a long time without troubles

It make senses the winged-lion is a demon. It showed us in Laius dream that the lion hasn't eat for a long time after being held back in prison, it wants to eat as soon as possible (by eating laius desire or his friends i guess).

Thistle is more clever than Misurn, he studies a lot of dark magic to the point knowing the demon's weakness and able imprison it... so that's why the demon can't eat thistle despite his complicated desire for a long time.

Desperate, wing-lion said he didn't have a form and can be anything so thats why it changes form into a lion as a guardian spirit of golden castle and entering their dreams and giving a vision, so King Darghal begun his expedition to the surface in order gathering force to defeat Mad sorcerer because he is not an ideal lord dungeon from demon's perspective. (Sorry for grammar mistake)

My point is it's normal for all goat daemons to have normal goat eyes. The only exception in your example is the cyclops on page 28 which has vertical eyeglasses-shaped eye.
I think the author draws the eyes based on goat pictures, it may or may not be indication of daemons.
