One of the most controversial series this season, Goblin Slayer, ended the season 1 with one of the arcs that are believed to have cut out before. The first season ended with Goblin Slayer defeating the Goblin Warlord and protected the town from complete annihilation. For those who want to get more Goblin Slayer doing some goblin slaying, don’t fret because we’re going to get a Goblin Slayer season 2.
The season finale of Goblin Slayer ended with a bang as the Priestess, and Goblin Slayer successfully defended his and Cow Girl’s hometown. We also saw a half of Goblin Slayer’s face, which revealed two scars near his chin. After the party and an epilogue, Goblin Slayer was seen slamming something, and after that, this frame was shown. This confirms that there are plans for Goblin Slayer Season 2. After all, the anime was a success, and it increased the sales of the source material.
Goblin Slayer Manga Update
It seems like the Manga and the anime adaptation seems to have the same pacing when it comes to stories covered. If they have the same pacing, what material will Goblin Slayer use in the second season? The anime is not adapted to Manga because the main source is a light novel written by Kumo Kagyu, which already has eight volumes, the last one being released last October. With the materials available right now from the light novels, we can have one more cour or more of Goblin Slayer anime. After all, we’re just starting to see more of Goblin Slayer; we only saw half his face in the last episode.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Spoiler
If you want to know what happened next in the Goblin Slayer series, you can read the light novel. The first five volumes already have English translations done by Yen Press. The sixth volume is available in January next year. There is also the side story Goblin Slayer: Year One, which was released in English last September.
The next season is supposed to feature Dark Elf, the main antagonist of the next season. So, Orcbolg will be seen as the opposite of Dark Elf. Those who read Manga and light novels might have the idea of it. Festival arc will be the central plot of the next season, so we will be waiting to see the next season!
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Release Date
Goblin Slayer Season 2 is expected to release in Fall 200 to Early 2021. This release date schedule could get delayed because of the ongoing coronavirus crisis, which has halted the productions of the anime. The ongoing epidemic has also halted voice-overs of anime episodes, so it is worth mentioning that it can get delayed further.
Goblin Slayer Movie
The Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown is an anime movie that is slated to be released on February 1. It is the adaptation of the fifth light novel written by Kump Kagyu. This will follow Goblin Slayer and the gang as they rescue a young noblewoman who disappeared after accepting a goblin mission.
It turns out that Goblin Slayer and the gang will face a goblin cult, which is led by a very intelligent and strong goblin leader. Remember that Goblin lord that tried to destroy the farm town in the last episode of the anime? He’s nothing compared to this “Goblin King.” How will the crew defeat this threat? Will they save the Young Noblewoman called Noble Fencer?
Update: We are already about to complete the first quarter of 2020, but there is no confirmed news coming out about the release date of the upcoming episode. Thus, we are waiting for the official details come out soon, till then, you can watch the latest Goblin Slayer movie. The manga is still ongoing, which means, the story will be continuing and we are going to get another season, just not sure when.
