Calling the first episode of ‘Goblin Slayer’ overwhelming would be a bit of an understatement, but it perfectly sets up the dark atmosphere of the anime and shows the evil nature of the goblins in its bleak world. The anime forces you to empathize with the characters of this world where all hope is lost. But that’s when a vigilante named the Goblin Slayer shows up and mercilessly “slays” all evil that crosses his path. Adding heft to this is the myriad of creative ways in which the Goblin Slayer kills all the Goblins. The vigilante does everything from stomping them down to shooting arrows right through them.
From the above description, it becomes pretty obvious that ‘Goblin Slayer’ is not for everyone and it’s also understandable why it has been receiving mixed reviews from the anime community. But for anyone who has a thing for dark, edgy anime shows, ‘Goblin Slayer’ is pure bliss. With that said, a new ‘Goblin Slayer’ movie has now been announced and as fans of the series, we can’t help but get all hyped up about it. So, here is everything you need to know about its upcoming movie sequel.
Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown Movie Release Date: When will it premiere?
Season 1 of ‘Goblin Slayer’ premiered on October 7, 2018 and with a total of 12 episodes, it went on till December 30, 2018. Soon after its debut, the anime became extremely popular, not just in Japan but in the U.S as well. There was also a lot of rage surrounding the anime after its debut as it portrayed a graphic representation of sexual assault in its very first episode. Even after this, the anime did not really ease out on its violence and all this controversy made it even more popular. Moreover, soon after its release on Crunchyroll, it became the number one anime in almost every state of the U.S. Instead of being a deterrent, its graphic content made it even more popular and helped it acquire a massive fanbase in the West.
So it comes as no surprise that the anime is now receiving a whole new sequel movie. According to its official website, it is scheduled to premiere on February 1, 2020 in Japan. For the most part, the cast of this sequel is the same as its predecessor. Goblin Slayer, the main titular character, has been voiced by Yuichiro Umehara (‘Ahiru no Sora‘, ‘Black Clover‘). Yui Ogura (‘High School DxD‘, ‘Infinite Dendrogram’) has voiced Priestess and Yuka Iguchi has been casted as CowGirl. Other renowned names in the cast of the anime include Tomokazu Sugita as Lizard Priest, Yoko Hikasa as Witch, Maaya Uchida as Guild Girl, Nao Tôyama as High Elf Archer, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Spearman, and Yuichi Nakamura as Dwarf Shaman.
