The final episode of Goblin Slayer has already aired, and it ended with some surprise for the fans. The fans received a special message at the end, which read, “Goblin Slayer will return.” Here is the picture and as you can see that the anime has hinted that it will be making a return in the future.
The anime premiered in Japan on October 7, 2018. Yen Press has licensed the novels and manga. Here is the synopsis of the series:
A young priestess has formed her first adventuring party, but almost immediately they find themselves in distress. It’s the Goblin Slayer who comes to their rescue–a man who’s dedicated his life to the extermination of all goblins, by any means necessary. And when rumors of his feats begin to circulate, there’s no telling who might come calling next.
Takaharu Ozaki has directed the anime (Persona 5 the Animation -The Day Breakers-, Girls’ Last Tour) at WHITE FOX. Hideyuki Kurata (Read or Die, Made in Abyss, Kamichu!) took care of series composition. Hideyuki also penned the scripts along with Yousuke Kuroda (Jormungand, My Hero Academia). The characters were designed by Takashi Nagayoshi(Girls’ Last Tour animation director).
The anime was harshly criticized by people throughout the anime community because it was too dark. After the first episode, one might think that it is just bland with just a lot of gore. However, that is untrue as Goblin Slayer has an excellent story. I must say that I am very excited to see the next installment of Goblin Slayer. We will keep an eye out the news related to the next season so, make sure to check our website.
