For a significant number of people, the real dream is to be able to live comfortably without having to work too hard. Maybe live in a penthouse apartment where you can do nothing all day but just chill around and play games. Kinji Ninomiya, the main character of The Dungeon of Black Company, wants the same thing.

If you're a fan of isekai and comedy series, then this show might be worth checking out for you.
