Goblin Slayer is a dark fantasy anime about a man known as Goblin Slayer. He’s an adventurer whose only purpose is the eradication of goblins with extreme prejudice. The story revolves around his adventure along with a newly joined priestess.
Season 1 came out in October 2018 and ran for 12 episodes. And, the anime received much love from the selected audience. Although, It had some negative reviews due to prominent controversial scenes involving goblins and human women. But, all the criticism subsided quickly since these scenes were only used as an early plot device. Once the setting was established it largely became a dark fantasy story with a cynical tinge. And any controversy doesn’t seem to have harmed the sales number.
Now, the fans are eager and impatient to know what is there in the trot for them in the story and when will the next season be released. It is probably up there with Re: Zero Season 2 on the list of most wanted anime sequels. With all said, let’s talk about the release of Season 2.
Release of Season 2
Without the second season, we will never see how many goblins can Goblin Slayer and his party slay. Also, if he will ever achieve his goal of getting rid of them.
The problem is that Season 2 didn’t get officially announced yet, and we don’t know what the chances are for another season to be announced. So, we’ll have to wait and see. And as always, if anything related to the release date is out, you’ll be the first ones to know 😉
