Main gripe though is referring to the background conversations in the tavern. Like, the extras are all: "Hey, some new Demon King showed up at this location. Good time to farm for EXP and gold" or some shit. Small detail, but it really clashed with any sense of realism the show might've been going for...


I was more bothered by the fact that the Guild lady didn't just outright tell them it was a bad idea. "Don't do it, it is a common rookie mistake, and you will get hurt badly", really is not that hard to pronounce.

Yeah, called it allready (>.<)

It has some HALO mixed in too though: the helmet (s)thingy and the background music.

I heard a lotta great things about the manga so I was massively anticipating its anime adaptation; for a pg-13, that was bummer... Where else am I gonna get a dose of some goblin po*n. Still though, to be able to adapt this as a pg-13. Kudos to them.

Great introductory episode, sh*t gets real when introduced characters are killed in the first episode. Cant wait for next week

P.S.
Was there anyone else waiting for tomorrow to watch this 😅😅, I only realised an hour ago that seventh of October is well underway in japan.

With the hype created about this series I expected something.. AWESOME, but first episode was just okay. Nothing to judge at now since there'll be a lot of episodes to create final opinion after watching all of it. I hope it'll go more spicy with the time.

It wasn't as dark as I expected, and that's a letdown. Otherwise, this was an awesome episode with lots of cool action. I'm excited to see this show (even if I wanted a bit more)

Now that I think about it, Goblin Slayer reminds me A LOT of Doom Slayer from Doom.


Also I got one thing to these idiots going Sensitive Snowflake Bitch Babies about the graphic content, HELLO, Game of Thrones you Dip-Shits.

Also the Anime Community is showing a TON if hypocrisy right now, HELLO Berserk.

i'm amazed people are complaining about rape. so gory violence is good, but rape is no-no? okay...

because they are cowards who's too afraid a fictional rape becomes reality in their life.
i bet these people are the same people who accuse people who enjoyed anime lolis are pedophile.

Or it may be because a lot of brave people have been raped or know somebody who has been raped and it's a terrible disgusting thing that they don't want to be reminded of when they're just looking for entertainment.

I was reluctant watching it because of all the rape and brutality comments but I did and, was that it? I mean it is brutal but nothing shocking or anything like that. I guess I am much more fucked up than I thought I was. Or maybe it is Berserk influence? Who knows...

Anyway it was interesting to watch but I have feeling that I will drop it in a few episodes if doesnt get better/more interesting than this cuz atm its slightly above average.

Disgusted is a big word. It's not like they're doing it for the enjoyment of viewers. It just adds a tone of despair because rape is really real, thats still going on til this day, especially in war zones. There are people who like more serious anime, and there are people who actually drool over this. The latter is just...

I was expecting it to be toned down a little on the rape and gorey side... and thank god I was wrong. It was pretty faithful for the most part this ep, great start.

One thing I should have said earlier. This episode is a perfect representation of what happens when you don't think things through.

For those of you who are arguing that the clerk should have done something just what exactly should she have done? She's a clerk, not a police officer or whatever the authority figures are in this world. She doesn't have the power to force a group of adventurers not to a do a job that's been offered. She can give them advice or warnings, as she did here, but in the end if the group wants to take this mission then there's nothing she can say or do. They've made the decision to put their lives on the line. If she tried to do anything to stop them then she'd be overstepping her position which would get her into trouble.

What happen was the group making the mistake in thinking they were facing a bunch of dumb goblins. Well, they soon found out they were wrong and they paid the price for it dearly. The swordsman was brutally murdered, the sorceress had to be put to death due to being poisoned for too long, and while the martial artist did survive her horrible experience has left her permanently scarred for life.

As for priestess, she learned her lesson from this. Her surviving taught her to never rush into things you're not prepared for.

The party sure was a accident waiting to happen such was their lack of prep for the quest and their attitude. The resulting ambush sure was brutal and exploited every one of the party's weaknesses. The goblin slayer sure made a timely and dramatic entrance. The teamup between Shinkan and the slayer sure was effective and his tactics sure were creative. The slayer sure has a bleak view of the world. Looks like Shinkan will be teaming up with the slayer. A strong episode and a surprisingly brutal one as benefiting a dark series.

For the amount of hype it has, I kinda expected more. Just another case of fanboys backlash I guess.

That being said, I don't hate it. The amount of edge is just about right to be entertaining and doesn't cross the line into the cringe category. As long as the quality doesn't drop, I don't mind 20 minutes of this every week.

Oh look, it’s DOOM: Goblins edition lol especially with that soundtrack
They pretty much adapted the first chapter of the manga which caught me off guard with the amount of gore and the rape it had when I read that chapter. (Didn’t continue it after that though for some reaso)

This show may first appear as just a killfest but the protagonist does have a backstory and his character develops over time.

Also if you are disturbed by how he mercilessly killed the children then trust me by the end of the anime you will consider him merciful for giving them a quick death.

The one thing I disliked in the anime adaptation is the character design. In the manga the characters look adult and mature, in the anime they look like children playing heroes.

i just don't understand what's your standard for "dark" themed anime. just curious if this isn't dark then what should be considered dark?
or you just hate it because you can't enjoyed it?


Well its just mal, negativity, and elitism, go to other forum for more positive review.


Here is the ironic part. the stuff on this forum have been some of the most positive reactions i have seen so far. most of it is "aaaaah omg they dared to do rage and gore, bad show bad show."

I wouldn't be so quick to claim that the whole rape aspect of the story isn't done to appeal to some of the audience. Especially if they continue to stick by the manga. There's one scene in particular that kind of.. Downplays the seriousness and grim nature of it.

Not going into spoilers, but it's a manga only scene that could ruin the atmosphere of the anime if they adapt it. It's part of the reason why I wanted them to stick to the Light Novel, since that takes the story way more seriously than the manga does at times.

Great first episode. I skimmed through the manga a bit and I'm surprised White Fox didn't shy away from adapting everything. Goblin Slayer had an epic entrance. I fucking love the red eye glow and the line it makes. His character design looks fantastic. I really like how he uses tactics for killing the goblins like removing their scent and setting up traps etc. That scene with him killing the goblin kids was really ruthless. Really looking forward to seeing more.

Kudos to you dude. If you know you won't like a certain anime then instead of keeping watching it just so you can come here and complain about it every single episode it's better to simply move on to something that you'll enjoy.

Man... they really want us to feel uncomfortable. Cruel deaths, rape, killing kids... maybe a bit too much.

At least when the Goblin slayer made his appearance the show turned to be more interesting, I liked the action scenes from there and the soundtrack is really suiting the dark action mood.

The show is pretty questionable for me basing on the first episode. The CGI is really poorly executed and the dark theme is overdone in my opinion.
People saying the source material is great so I hope it would get better in the upcoming episodes.

If you can't handle the violence then i would advise you to just drop it already. You're not going to like the rest of the anime either.

I went in knowing nothing about it, expected some mix of maybe grimgar of the ashes and konosuba, but this is dark instead of generic fantasy SOL. Nice. I guess its somewhat close to grimgar of the ashes in that.

Lets see how this turns out, from what I have read so far there will be lots of Goblin slaying, no story or character developement. And lost of raoe scenes because we need those too.

I for some reason hvae the feeling this first episode will be the darkest/only dark one, because thats kinda common. Would love to see some truly dark fantasy again.

PS: Rape and child murder is PG-13, what?

PPS: Why does MAL always hype the most generic shit?

It's edgelord-fanservice and gore. I couldn't be any more bored if i tried.
Music is kinda nice though. Animation is kinda average.

The only Manga that tries this nieche even harder is Re:monster.

This is probably Overwatch with more rape and less sidekicks.

Comparing this to Grimgar is retarded.

I've read 28 chapters of the manga. There's not that much rape, and it never gets worse than in chapter 1.
It hasn't really got worse but it sure is a reoccurring theme in a lot of chapters lol. Women are very disposable in this show. (non mcs)

Yeah, same here. It was getting to be too much as it was, and to think that I had watched the toned down version. It was an unpleasant first episode. I don't think I could handle a second.

That is pretty much what I feared. Sites like crunchyroll and stuff kept hyping this anime to the heavens as though it was going to be anime of the season. Even though it's running up against Jojo's of all things. So people are probably going to come into this with unreasonably high expectations when the show is basically just goblin slayer kicking goblin ass. It's nothing revolutionary and that's just going to make the people who bought into the hype unreasonably angry.

You wanna know what the funniest part is? Despite a lot of people's concerns about this anime being too much for people to handle, it still doesn't come close to how mean spirited Magical Girl Site was. Goblin Slayer does this nasty shit with sort of a purpose.

Magical Girl Site was just the author having some unrestrained loathing towards a girl and writing it on paper. I'd sooner have my kid watch GS than MGS

What an emotional roller coaster. The rape scene was pretty left field, but I'm really liking this series so far from a pure entertainment standpoint. I added the novel to the database ages ago because the title caught my attention, but I didn't really think much of it then when reading the description. I might actually pick up the novel now.

You watched the censored version. You'll probably find the uncensored version via torrents or some other anime site. HorribleSubs is doing the uncensored one.

kinda loled at this. you know what's funny, people complain about rape and how it's not PG-13 at all despite the name of the title, where mahou shoujo site gives nothing away from the title. that's why it was a shitstorm, i remember it very well

i'm glad to know GS justifies and explains all of this later on, otherwise i would probably be confused as well

Alright. To start off, the first episode was executed perfectly. I particularly enjoyed that they added the killing sequence of the goblin kids to add a darker tone to gs's character. For some that might be an understatement, and probably is, but I liked it. I also want to issue the rape scenes. THIS IS NOT AN ANIME FOR THE SQUEAMISH SO DON'T BE PUSSIES AND SAY YOU DID NOT LIKE THE RAPE BECAUSE IT'S JUST GOING TO INCREASE. Ehem. SOrry about that. From the beginning when the four entered the cave and got ambushed, I did not like the fact that they removed the scenes where they received, I guess training because since that element was removed, I feel no sympathy to the characters, and rather just see them as normal characters who died. Now, when gs was introduced, I like that they edited his voice to cope with the fact that HE HAS A FUCKING HELMET. In other anime, it sounds like they're just speaking in thin air when a helmet is present, but I enjoyed the fact that they added that detail. Again, to address the rape scene, it wasn't as detailed in the anime than from the manga panel, but I'll take it. Another thing to address is the gore; ngl, it was ok. I understand the reason for which they had to tone it down, like the manga panel where the shaman gets his skull busted and his brain and eyes fly everywhere, but hopefully this gets more gruesome throughout the whole anime. AGAIN, DON'T WATCH IF YOU'RE A PUSSY. I ONLY CREATED AN ACCOUNT BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE ARE IDIOTS AND WONT SEE REVIEWS FIRST. thank
