Goblin Slayer is a Japanese dark fantasy light novel series written by Kumo Kagyu and illustrated by Noboru Kannatsuki. The series surfaced in October 2018 and ran for a total of 12 episodes. The anime hit off pretty well and received much love from its selected audience.
There were also 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. So let’s get directly to it. Also, make sure to check out the official streaming platform for the series.
Release of Season 2
Even after two years of the first season’s release, fans are still waiting for the second season. Since there have been no nods from the studio about the second season, fans are skeptical if the second season will ever make it to their screens. If we were to look at the source material for the show, there is plenty left as the mini-novel has over 13 volumes and still going.
This means that there is no shortage of content for the show. The series has also been doing fine with the overall sales of the novels, manga, and merchandise. All of these are positive for the possibility of the second season. This means we should be watching the next season by the end of 2021 if the pandemic permits the show’s production.
Without the second season, we will never see how many goblins can Goblin Slayer and his party slay. And if he will ever achieve his goal of getting rid of them.
