The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter Episode 9 is out. The last episode showed what Noir could do to help Lola with her struggles. He also made friends with a new character. While he was at it, he also showed how much does he cares for Emma. The most obvious proof was when he couldn’t abandon Dory because she looked like Emma. With that said, Noir also used this episode to show that he cares for Emma more than anyone else. Emma is Noir’s childhood friend and, while growing up, he must have developed some feelings for her. Emma is the same. For that reason, Emma invites Noir to a party because she wants to dance with him. Noir accepts and there lies a new challenge for the two of them.
The night of the party came and Noir is there, waiting for Emma to finish her preparation. Emma’s parents welcome him warmly. Then, Emma’s father asks Noir if she told him something, but Noir looks like he does not know anything, so Emma’s father concludes that Emma did not told Noir something. After that, Emma comes down and greets Noir. He is surprised because Emma is beautiful in her gown, and hair down. They both blush. Before the party starts, a certain person announces that he received a threat from the Phantom Thief that they will steal his Mermaid Tears. However, he also says that the adventurers from the strongest guild in their city are there to protect them from the Phantom Thief. Then, when the announcement is over, Noir notices that Emma is shaking in fear.
The party starts and they need to dance. The set of dance matches their family ranks. Since Noir is a Baronet, they will be the last one to dance. While waiting for their turn, a guy name Mike from a noble family approaches Emma and asks her to reconsider her answer regarding his courting proposal. However, Emma tells him that she will not. Then, Mike figures out Emma does not want him to court her because she has feelings for Noir. Because of this, he challenges Noir to a dance competition with Emma. The winner will be determined by the audience applause. He says that whoever wins will be the one date Emma and Noir accepts. Emma is surprised but she cannot do anything. Noir tells himself that he cannot stand seeing Emma talk comfortably with other guys, so he accepts the challenge. The time of Emma and Noir’s dance comes. Noir uses his skill to make his dancing skills improve and he wins.
When the dancing part of the party is over, Noir and Emma were just about to kiss when the lights suddenly turn off. To their surprise, the Phantom Thief appears in front of them, but they cannot see anything because it is very dark. Then, the Phantom Thief abducts Emma and steals the Mermaid Tear and escaped. There were two of them. Noir and an adventurer named Leila follow them to save Emma. This was one of the most dangerous challenge for the two of them because their enemy was using a gravity manipulation skill. However, Noir did not give up, but still, the only thing he can do was shout that Emma is precious to him. Then, Emma suddenly wakes up and uses her new skill that she obtained from the item that Noir gave her. They catch the Phantom Thief off guard and win. Emma asks Noir if he thinks of her as a dirty woman now, but Noir’s response is another kiss, which means that his feelings towards Emma did not change.

The Hidden Dungeon is a place of legend where rare treasures and items are hidden. Noir, the third son of an impoverished noble family who’s lost the one job offer he had, was lucky enough to hear about this dungeon. He then acquires a skill that allows him to create, bestow, and edit skills… and in order to use it, he needs to accumulate points by carrying out such tasks as eating delicious meals and doing sexual things with alluring members of the opposite sex.
