A young priestess has formed her first adventuring party, but almost immediately they find themselves in distress.

After the incredibly controversial first episode, Goblin Slayer has found itself in the spotlight of the season (but for the wrong reasons). People have either already given up on this series and are calling anyone who still watches it a "rape apologist" or something along those lines, or didn't think the first episode was that bad and are waiting to see where this series will go.

Personally I think the first episode is fine if the series continues the darker theme. However, after watching the 2 episodes following the first, I'm starting to get concerned. It's really starting to look like a generic Ecchi Isekai show read more

Go read either the manga or the novel, but spare your eyes the dreadful execution of this anime adaptation.
The Story goes just like the manga, so there isn't much to say, the only detail is that it's far more boring than the manga or novel.

My biggest issue with this show is mainly just how bloody bad the animation is, it's dreadfully ugly to look at and the cut parts.

The manga by itself is good in a very mediocre way, it's enjoyable, but the anime adaptation takes away all that makes it enjoyable diminishing an already poor characterization and by far doing the most stupid thing read more

Goblin Slayer is a serviceable anime that manages to be more than the sum of its parts. Its execution is surprisingly enjoyable, despite its mediocre setting and over-reliance on generic anime tropes.

Features of the setting that it shares most with isekai anime are thankfully papered over — e.g. EXP, guild ranks, quest-types, etc. It doesn't seek to craft that which has already been beaten to death, nor does it need to: the setting assumes a familiarity with isekai and JRPGs, leaving time to focus on what is unique to the anime.

Sadly, not much is unique, save the compelling and titular character. Even he [Goblin read more
