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
Yeah the little flashes of their life albeit short got at least a sliver of care out of me. All they need was like 15-30 seconds too but no time apparently.

Well, the animation could be better, and I'm not a fan of Orcblog's voice, but overall it's pretty good.

They did turn down the violence a little, but honestly, it's better than I expected. I assumed they would have turned it down a lot more and/or cut out the raping and goblin baby slaughter. Though that would have ruined the mood of the whole show. If you don't like dark fantasy and excessive violence, this probably isn't the show for you.

That was pretty good. Main girl has some strong nerves being able to go killing Goblins again after all the crazy shit that happened, Goblin Slayer must be proud.

Wow that sucks, spending years at a magic college or whatever only to get killed by goblins that quickly and for nothing.

That was a good first episode, but the rape scene and all was just a little too much for me.. I've seen a lot of graphic stuff, but I kinda had to cool down after watching this. I guess when the Goblin Slayer himself appeared, it made things a bit better.

But yeah, this show doesn't hold back when it comes to explicit content.

this was a pretty crazy first episode. i liked how they made it clear how dark the series would be as if saying "this is what its going to be like, if you arent fucking with it, you can leave now" haha. Goblin Slayer came in and fucked shit up, the soundtrack didn't fail to get me hype. its not like i love demented shit, but i like the more dark approach this seems to be going. going to read the light novel or the manga now. still haven't decided. dope though, im hype.

I've read the manga just wondering is Crunchyroll super censored compared to the Japanese raw version. Or they both censored like Jojo effect


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.


Okay yeah i don't want to torrent however i don't like the idea of watching a censored version so horriblesubs is uncensored?

If so i'll watch that one

Definitely, so if its something insensitive to u drop the series, the rape is only going to increase.


Thanks, I won't continue then.


If you want to continue to get into the stuff on Goblin Slayer I advise you to read the novel, the rape scenes are mostly only implied but not focused, if you still can't then by all means you should drop it, just don't force yourself :)

I am glad that in the end they decided to choose a middle ground between LN and the manga adaptation. The anime still contains the artifact of the rape fetishization, but the directing makes it hidden enough so that it does not turn into a fanservice. Otherwise, I already like the direction they chose, especially the metal soundtrack. If the action scenes were more dynamic, I wouldn't hesitate to put 10 points already for the first episode.

Well,that was unexpected,even for someone who's a fan of the LN.Dark,moody,really good,even keeping in what happens to females captured by goblins.I liked it.A lot.
Even though a lot of people seem to be complaining a bit about the rape and stuff,its an integral part to understanding what nasty little gits the goblins are,and why GS spends all his time hunting them,and as for the animation,personally I thought it fit quite well,so did the music.
And I like GS's voice,it seems to fit him really well.
All in all,it's damn fine anime so far.
And as for those of you thinking about reading the LN,or getting the manga,do so.Its worth it.

I was really worried that they might go too soft on the graphic scenes for TV, but they seem to have been able to hit a happy medium. Hopefully the use of CG here and there will pay off in keeping the animation quality throughout the series. Overall, good start to the series and I like the overall dark/harsh tone that they were able to achieve so far. Will continue to watch!

I mean I expected it to be a bit more hardcore but damn, how can they keep that PG-13 rating with a slaughter and rape scene? Honestly though I would rather have seen an R rating without censoring stuff from the manga.

Edit: So apparently mal just changed it to R. Makes sense.

Well, certainly not bad. I haven't liked any Medieval/Fantasy Anime lately, I hope this is the exception. It can't be worse than Overlord tho
If you find yourself disagreeing, please, don't do the following:

1. Call out on some superiority complex.
2. Rely on "If you don't like then don't watch it" in an attempt to defend your statements
3. Resorting to insults.

Having read the manga, it's pretty good so far. Glad they skipped the flashback on those other characters, don't need to spend time on characters that won't appear again. Only thing I have to complain about right now is GS's CGI.

And in case someone was wondering, there seems to be no notable differences between AT-X and HS (no nips, no arm mutilation of the guy, etc). Unless CR is using an actual censored version or something and HS is using AT-X, which is unlikely. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

To those saying that the clerk should've told the kids not to do the quest, I'd suggest that you guys read the manga Goblin Slayer Gaiden: Year One. I think it explains there why clerks should not interfere with the decisions of the adventurers.

Who uses porcelain as a name for a rank?

So uhh...a band of novice adventurers decide to try to take on some goblins because they think they're "weak"? And the swordsman had no proper sword training? And the graduate mage only knew one spell? These guys had no idea what they were getting into...

"Goblin Slayer." Roll credits! *Ding!*

"I'm going to go kill some goblins." Yes...yes you are..

"My sword is useless because there's too much blood on it." So a weapon's durability is based on how much blood can be stained on it until it can't be used anymore? Doesn't that make a whole lot of bladed weapons useless then?

So what I got out of this is that...the Goblin Slayer slays goblins. Oook then. Is he keeping count of how many goblins he's slayed? He killed around what 20? Was that just for this quest or goblins in total? Because if he only killed like 10 goblins and became a silver, that's a pretty lame ranking system. Well our little priestess has some chain mail now. Hopefully her healing skills get better as the series progresses...

What a way to start the first episode xD
I'm glad that at least that girl survived. I think this is honestly the most hardcore 1st episode i've ever seen.

That metal playing in the background, so epic!
Can't wait for more episodes!

It varies between stories. It's not uncommon to have stories where goblins, orcs and various other monsters are only born male or in some cases, only female, and have extremely low birth rate of the other gender, so they copulate with other creatures to prolong their species. Though you can probably guess, stories that elaborate on this are usually r18 stuff or explicit series like this.

Well,no,I think its more because they enjoy it :)-rape,despair etc,oh,and apparently they breed like rabbits,only less fur and not as good for noms,the goblins I mean,not the women :)
Ah hell,I think I'm gonna get called out for that one :)

I came into this knowing it was gonna be lame, but am still surprised at just how lame it is. Just more edgelord pandering with shoddy animation, bland OST, and no inspiration. People already pointed it out, but the expendables going out on that quest was super stupid considering the danger was common knowledge in this world. Also especially annoyed at how the setting is trying to pass as an actual fantasy world while constantly incorporating blatant RPG mechanics that just prevent you from ever taking the world seriously. Of course, people are still praising it for going 'all out' with the rape scenes, but imho that was pretty tame. Gotta keep that PG13 rating I guess?

And no, I'm not just salty because I didn't get to hear the new Mili song...

I guess most of the people are pissed off not because of the rape scenes, but because of the lack of subtlety of them. I mean, yes, I know those and violence scenes are kind of necessary to show how crude the goblins and the world might be, but imo it's not necessary to be so explicit to show the message. Those scenes are supposed to have a meaning, but if they go too far they could end up losing that meaning and just being a weird and out-of-tone fanservice whose only purpose is shock value. There should be a balance to be dark, because it can end up just being edgy.

But yes, I admit it wasn't so explicit like the manga is, and at least here there is a reason to be, unlike stuffs like Mahou Shoujo Site which it's just edgy for the sake of being edgy.

And not, I'm not saying this because I'm a salty SJW or an elitist "bitching" about everything.

Good grief, the way they had to beat me in the head about the sword's length being too long for a confined space like a cave. I get it. The first time the sword hit the damn ceiling I got it. The second time, during the combat, that was a somewhat nice touch. The third time replaying it? Go f*ck yourselves.

Meh, first episode was tolerable, at least.
