The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 4 Review – Quick Summary

In The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 4, “The Untainted Cleric,” Noir Starga paid a quick visit to Olivia Servant. Noir wanted Olivia to confirm that Luna Healer was the best option for lifting the curse from the Duke’s daughter Maria Fiana Albert. Olivia said that unless Noir had 10,000 life points (and he didn’t), then he should bet on the elvish healer. Later, Lola Metrose brought the healer, Luna Healer, to meet Noir and Emma Brightness. However, Luna dashed their hopes. She had already looked at Maria’s curse and determined she could not lift it. Noir saw, using his Discerning Eye, that Luna had withheld part of the truth. Not even Lola knew this secret. But even knowing the secret, what could Noir do? Should he tell all three women about his skills?

Favorite Quote from The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 4

The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 4: Noir likes Olivia's ideas.

Olivia doesn’t do anything half way! Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.

I knew I missed Olivia. What I didn’t know was just how much I missed her. She was in the episode less than 3 minutes, but she accounted for most of the candidates for favorite quote! But a substantial margin!

Noir (finally!) made some time to go visit. She was understandably miffed that he’d ignored her for two weeks, but she dropped that quickly and got down to business: talking about lifting Maria’s curse. Turns out that using the skills she’d given him, Noir could undo the curse. It would only take 10,000 LP!

He only had 1/5 of that.

When Olivia realized that the cleric was an elf, Olivia said that might be good news. Apparently, getting intimate with another species offered some kind of bonus LP points for the experience.

Olivia said (05:14), “You gotta go for the glory!”

I really admire Olivia’s attitude!

Best in Show Moment for The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 4

The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 4: Lucky Lecher rarely makes a good first impression.

Noir came up with a great solution, and just in time, too! Lucky Lecher would probably not make the best first impression on Luna! Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.

Setup: The Ghost of Tamaki

I did not expect to see a reference to Tamaki from Fire Force in this episode! But in retrospect, if anyone were to make the connection between Tamaki’s unfortunate skill and this series, it would be Olivia. It’s like a single anime series can’t contain her hedonism!

Shorter after my favorite quote (above), Olivia offered to give Noir the details on a skill that’ll help him drive up his LP. She likes to build anticipation, because she’s Olivia, so she told him this was a forbidden skill.

And what is this amazing forbidden skill? It’s the Lucky Lecher. Yes, the Lucky Lecher.

“It only takes a measly 300 points to get, but it’s as effective as hell!” Olivia said happily (06:26). “You’ll have some indescribable experiences!”

As usual, Noir likes Olivia's ideas.

The idea of Lucky Lecher seemed to appeal to Noir. Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.

Now, I’ll be honest. That worried me at first. Were Noir’s clothes going to blow off at the drop of a hat? Because I’m not sure I want to see that. No, I take that back. I’m sure I don’t want to see that. Fortunately for me, if not for the women-folk all around Noir, what Noir acquired would better be called the Projected Lucky Lecher skill, because it didn’t target him. It targeted the women around him. So that when he found Emma in the town waiting for Lola and Luna, Noir tried to run to her. A stray cat happened to cross his path, and he tripped. He face-planted in Emma’s cleavage.

Just to be clear: This isn’t my favorite moment. It’s not a bad moment, but it still didn’t rise to the status of “favorite.”

Delivery: Noir’s Nice Guy Skill Prevails

Noir Had Too Much of a Good Thing

Here’s a fun fact: Face-planting into Emma’s cleavage is worth 300 LP! From Noir’s perspective, that’s a decent bump. But (Projected) Luck Lecher wasn’t done! A stray breeze flipped Emma’s skirt (with the stray cat leaping at the right time to play the role of Lens Flare Censor), which gave Noir 250 LP.

Remember, Noir tries to be a nice guy, so he didn’t stare. In fact, despite earning 250 LP, he looked away — only to see that the wind was more widely spread than he’d realized. Women all over the market were trying to hold their skirts down. He gained 110, 180, and 150 LP in rapid succession.

Apparently, the second woman was more his type.

Noir could see his (Projected) Lucky Lecher had a down side. No, really, he could see that. Capture from the Crunchyroll stream.

“Damn,” he said. It might have been half-heartedly (07:32). “My luck just won’t stop!”

Well, Maybe “Too Much” Was Relative

In my review of the second episode, I mentioned that Noir is a really nice guy. He’s also a fairly practical young man. Though he didn’t seem personally upset by what was going on around him (or the LP points he was racking up!), he realized that this just wasn’t, well, sustainable. I mean, how much would would anyone around him get done under these circumstances? So despite his deep-felt gratitude to Olivia, Noir knew he needed to do something — and he had the perfect idea.

This was my favorite moment: For 10 LP, he added “rarely” to the skill description using his Editor skill. For an additional 150 LP, he added that it should never fire during “serious situations” (08:01). So, for less LP than he’d gained during the second skirt flip (not counting Emma’s), he had an effective solution. It even improved Emma’s quality of life! Well, it protected her skirt, which is directly related.

It’s important to maintain balance!

    1. Maybe seeing Olivia again boosted the episode, but I think this might have been the most enjoyable yet.

      The more Olivia the better!
