Goblin Slayer is a very controversial anime that was released back in 2018. There was a lot of backlash due to many of its scenes that were disturbing and downright disgusting for many anime fans. It is based on the light novel written by Kumo Kagyu and illustrated by Noboru Kannatsuki. Despite such a backlash, Goblin Slayer was renewed for a second season. The announcement was made at GA FES 2021. There was also a movie released on February 1, 2020, two years ago. Since then, the fans of this controversial series have been waiting for news about when Goblin Slayer Season 2 will be released. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming anime season.
Goblin Slayer Season 2
The story of the Goblin Slayer is tragic and isn’t for the faint of heart. It is set in the fantasy world where people from afar join Guild. By doing so, they are given missions, and those who complete these missions are rewarded with gold and glory. Amongst them is a priestess who joins an adventuring party for the first time. But this becomes a very bad decision as her party is killed by goblins. With no chance of escaping, she loses every hope and accepts her death. But in her time of great despair, a man comes to her rescue who is named Goblin Slayer. His only goal is to eradicate every goblin in the world with extreme force.
The exact details of the plot of the second season haven’t been revealed yet, but when looking at the first season, it adapted the first two volumes of the light novel. The show’s second season will most likely adapt events from volumes 3-4, and who knows, it might adapt it even further.
