The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 11 Review – Quick Summary

In The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 11, “Noir’s Decision,” Noir Starga finally realizes his goal and opens his rare item store. His family helped him (including Tigerson, who named it). Even Emma Brightness, Lola Metrose, and Luna Healer helped. It was a big hit, so Noir felt emboldened and wanted to visit Olivia Servant. Noir declared his intent to free Olivia, but she told him to be careful. Noir thought it was strange she would get cautious all of a sudden! After consulting the Great Sage within, he learned the answer to Olivia’s problems would be on level 15. He asked Noir to help him, because level 15 is deep and dangerous, and Noir’s not an idiot. What he and Emma found astonished them. Then it almost killed them. Will he be able to keep his promise to Olivia? Will he survive long enough to try?

Note: This post may include spoilers, so be cautious.

The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 11: Olivia seemed hesitant when Noir offered to free her

I think that Olivia was kidding, but with her, it’s hard to tell sometimes! Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.

Before he brought Emma to meet Olivia, Noir visited Olivia on his own. He told her that he wanted to express his appreciation for everything she’d done. He told her that he wanted to find a way to safely release her from those chains. She sounded surprised; maybe even shocked.

Then she sounded touched when she thanked him, but at the same time, she asked him not to push himself.

“Don’t worry,” he told her. “I’m a coward by nature!”

“Yeah,” Olivia said (05:59), “you’re the type of guy that gathers all the info you can on the girl you like, then lose her to another buy before you can confess your feelings to her, and end up crying.”

Ouch! And she sounded so upbeat as she said it!

Best in Show Moment for The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 11

The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 11: The Lola and Luna Special Pretty Girl Sandwich is way better than even an ice cream sandwich.

Lola comes up with the best ideas! Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.

Setup: It’s an Ecchi Show, So…

After barely escaping the “Death Chains Olivia Clone” (which was level 420, by the way), Noir and Emma returned to the city. Emma went off to research any weaknesses Olivia might have had. Exhausted, Noir stopped by his stop before heading home.

Unknown to Noir, Luna and Lola had stayed in the shop to tidy up after closing. That was the plan, anyway. Lola wanted to take the extra step of hanging up a portrait of her so Noir could look at her whenever he came into the store. Luna, of course, felt less than thrilled. She didn’t want Lola to have any unfair advantage.

When Noir came in, they both stopped arguing and rushed to his sides. The poor guy had been through so much in the dungeon that he was almost swaying on his feet. Luna noticed that right away and said that he looked exhausted. Before he could explain, Lola said that he must be low on LP.

Noir’s low on LP? I think I know where this is going! Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.

“In that case, leave it to us,” Luna said (17:50).

This is The Dungeon Only I Can Enter so you know that that means!

As far as best moments go, I’ll admit up front this isn’t the summit. But this episode set up the final conflict in the next episode, so there weren’t a lot of really impactful moments to choose from. So, I figured I’d go with a moment that showed two of this show’s strengths.

Delivery: Team Work is Good Work

First, the show’s true to its core concept that for Noir to recharge, he needs to do something hedonistic. Which is to say, hold hands, make out, or otherwise get intimate with Emma, Lola, or Luna. It’s a solid way to introduce ecchi content that doesn’t feel grafted on.

Second and more importantly (as far as I’m concerned), it shows just how well the members of his harem can get along when they want to. We’ve seen Emma’s fine as long as she’s present with harem shenanigans (like at the end of episode 10). All three of them have shown how well they can work together (and get together), like at the end of episode 5. Now, we get to see that Lola and Luna get along pretty well even when Emma’s not present.

Once Luna and Lola realized Noir needed an LP boost, Lola sprang into action. She offered to strip for Noir. Was it my imagination, or did Luna not bat an eye at that suggestion? Noir declined with a half-hearted “maybe not now.” Undaunted, Lola took her inspiration from a sandwich on the table. She pulled Lola aside and whispered her plan. Luna, bless her soul, was all in.

Lola and Luna make a good team. A very, very good team. Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.

The next instant, Lola hugged Noir from the front and Luna from the back.

“This is Lola and Luna’s special Pretty Girl Sandwich,” Lola said before she blew in Noir’s ear (18:27).

The dude raised 3,000 LP in about half a second. Well done, Lola and Luna!
