This dark fantasy Japanese novel was very well received when it aired its first season. Now fans are eagerly waiting when a second season will drop.
The universe of Anime is a huge one and contains a lot of genres. One such genre is dark fantasy, and the anime 'Goblin Slayer' falls under that. Kumo Kagyu writes the series, and the illustrations are taken care of by Noboru Kannatsuki. After the success of the manga and the anime series, a television adaptation of the manga was undertaken and aired from October 7 to December 30, 2018. Additionally, an anime movie Goblin Slayer: Goblin's Crown was released on February 1, 2020. The first season had a total of 12 episodes, and even though the show makers have assured the fans that the show will move forward, there have been no official announcements made yet. Here is everything you need to know about the second season of the Goblin Slayer.
Even though the show has been renewed for a second season, it has not been yet specified when it will make a comeback. The first season of the show met with mixed responses from the audience and the critics alike.
The show has been marred with a lot of controversy for having a lot of sexually graphic scenes. But, on the flip side, it also has a huge fanbase. Despite the show being renewed for a second season, no release date has been announced as of now. Our initial prediction was the fall of 2020, but due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, this could be pushed to 2021.
The English-dubbed episodes of the show can be found on Funimation.
The plot of the story takes place in a world of fantasy. A group of men takes up the task to fight goblins, and they are joined by an inexperienced priestess during their job. They follow the guild, and under their orders, they have to take up any jobs available. Since the priestess is inexperienced, she gets herself involved in a very dangerous situation when she goes on to tackle a group of goblins.
There has been no trailer released for the second season, but keep an eye out for this space as we will update it as soon as something official breaks.
When the finale of the show aired, at the very end, one message card appeared, that read, "Goblin Slayer Will Return!" Since the television adaptation of the show only used a little bit of the source material, it is very much possible that the show will return, but it is not known when the show is going to make a comeback. Meanwhile, the movie, titled 'Goblin Slayer: Goblin Crown,' was released on February 1, 2020. Additionally, it is also known that the second season will feature a new enemy known as 'Dark Elf' who is a member of the evil sect.
The controversy about the show began with the very first episode. It was shown that a young priestess had joined an overaged party of people who are going on an adventure to rescue a group from a nest of goblins. But, something goes wrong in their journey, and they fail to stock up their necessary supplies. The main controversy surrounding the show began mainly because of the graphic scenes of assault. A lot of people said that a lot of scenes were hard to stomach. The show has also aired a number of violent sexual scenes, but after the controversy, they were toned down quite a bit.
