Goblin Slayer Season 2

The first season of Goblin Slayer TV anime was released in October 2018 in Japan. Crunchyroll streamed the first season as it aired whereas Funimation aired the English dub of season one.

Goblin Slayer is a Japanese manga series written by Kumo Kagyuu and illustrated by Kousuke Kurose.

The first volume of Kumo Kagyu’s Goblin Slayer dark fantasy novel series was published by SB Creative in Feb 2016. In May 2016, Kosuke Kurose released an ongoing manga adaptation through Big Gangan. Both Kumo Kagyu’s Goblin slayer novels and Kosuke Kurose’s manga adaptation are licensed by Yen Press.

MAL describes the plot of Goblin Slayer manga as:

In a world stalked by great beasts and frightening monsters, a more common creature is often overlooked: the goblin. While not as outright threatening as some of the larger nightmares out there, goblins are capable of grotesque feats of brutality in their own rights, often joining together in large bands and spreading destruction.

Enter the justly titled Goblin Slayer, whose sole mission in life is to wreak havoc on goblins, murdering as many of them as he possibly can. Utilizing the realm’s reigning mission system for adventurers, Goblin Slayer makes sure to accept any and all goblin-related missions.

One of these quests brings him into contact with a young Priestess, who he rescues from an assault at the hands of a particularly nasty group of goblins who have raped and slaughtered her entire party. Although initially averse to human connection, Goblin Slayer begrudgingly finds himself developing an attachment to Priestess and the other party members that they gain along the way. Often tugged into massive adventures that pull him away from his goblin-murdering comfort zone, Goblin Slayer works to keep his party safe from harm and gradually overcomes the childhood trauma that crafted him into the killing machine he has become.
