Goblins are known for their ferocity, cunning, and rapid reproduction, but their reputation as the lowliest of monsters causes their threat to be overlooked. Raiding rural civilizations to kidnap females of other species for breeding, these vile creatures are free to continue their onslaught as adventurers turn a blind eye in favor of more rewarding assignments with larger bounties.

To commemorate her first day as a Porcelain-ranked adventurer, the 15-year-old Priestess joins a band of young, enthusiastic rookies to investigate a tribe of goblins responsible for the disappearance of several village women. Unprepared and inexperienced, the group soon faces its inevitable demise from an ambush while exploring a cave. With no one else left standing, the terrified Priestess accepts her fate—until the Goblin Slayer unexpectedly appears to not only rescue her with little effort, but destroy the entire goblin nest.

As a holder of the prestigious Silver rank, the Goblin Slayer allows her to accompany him as he assists the Adventurer's Guild in all goblin-related matters. Together with the Priestess, High Elf, Dwarf, and Lizardman, the armored warrior will not rest until every single goblin in the frontier lands has been eradicated for good.

Goblin Slayer's brilliance shines in its unyielding portrayal of the savagery of goblins, compelling viewers to empathize with the adventurers whose lives are forever altered by these vile creatures. While the initial shock may be overwhelming, it serves to underscore the true evil lurking within the narrative. Enter Goblin Slayer, a vigilante reminiscent of a medieval Batman, exacting justice upon these fiends with ruthless efficiency.

Utilizing a range of methods, from crushing goblin teeth against rocks to splattering their brains on cave walls, Goblin Slayer's relentless pursuit of his mission is both awe-inspiring and chilling. His steadfast resolve, despite ridicule from his peers, speaks volumes about ...

Watching Goblin Slayer is a chore. A chore that you should only do to clean up your watch list or if your in the mood for mindless action.

After watching Goblin Slayer for a second time in preparation for the release of S2 I can confidently say that the anime is Just Okay. The first episode had convinced me it was going to be a dark fantasy anime where you could expect anything to happen at a moments notice. However it was quickly watered down into a generic Fantasy with only a few dark moments sprinkled in showing you what could have been.

Goblin Slayer is only popular at all due to the amount of controversy surrounding it. Take away the surface level edginess and the questionable stuff, and it's still a generic fantasy story with really shallow characters (They don't even have names... Lol). It could maybe be a 5/10 at most because admittedly there are entertaining aspects of it, despite the story being garbage. But then you throw in the exploitative use of sexual assault in the story- once again Goblin Slayer is only popular at all because of this controversy, and they knew what they were doing- plus other really trashy fan service, sleazy fantasy ...
