THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Oh my, cow girl and tears.

I didn't think first half of the episode was interesting. Second half was much darker and honestly, these goblins are just everywhere. It's about time we got to see the Witch in action though. Only took 11 episodes...

Bodies dropping everywhere lol. Those giant goblins are such thirsty monsters...

GS about to raise that count next time.

We had to wait a week longer but it was worth it i can't say that i was disappointed with this episode they did a really great job with this one.
It was nice in the manga but it's great in the anime and i am really looking forward to next week.

That being said it was nice too see the reactions to Goblin Slayers request.
And now the other adventures get to see a part of what Goblin Slayer deals with every day even the newbies now the cruelty of the goblins now.
Wether they learn from it is a different thing tho.

And it's also nice to see the other adventures fighting for ones, we have seen some training from them but we haven't seen them fighting which is something i was really looking forward to.

Best episode till date, I think it was a fantastic idea to switch the arcs up and have this close out the season. This was so awesome.

Damn, I got really emotional when Goblin Slayer bowed his head and asked for help from all the adventurers at the guild. Especially when he said he'd give up anything he had as an award, thankfully the guy with the spear turned out to be a good dude.

Guild Girl coming through big time, this is why she's the best. That smile on her face when all the adventurers got riled up. <3
I couldn't help but grin too during that entire scene, most of the adventurers are simply too prideful to admit they actually wanna help. xD

The battle was awesome, it was super cool to see everyone execute GS's strategy and I''m glad it was all really well animated. Everyone should've gotten a taste of what goblins are really like now. The final scene with GS walking towards the Goblin Lord was pure badass.

I can't wait for the finale next week, it's gonna be glorious.

"he went... to slay some goblins" lmao, you don't say
i guess at first a lot of people outraged about them not including this battle where it was supposed to be but this change is actually more suitable as the finale of the show.

a bit more respect from his fellow heroes for a dramatic effect, a large scale battle of all sorts of heroes and goblins, and voilà - a worthy finale

They probably used the manga for this episode because this arc was available when they started producing the anime.

Best episode so far. Found Goblin Slayer a bit boring so far and couldn't get any enjoyment out of it, but this episode was interesting enough to enjoy.

The show as a whole is a bit eh, but I haven't read the manga or the LN, so I don't know how good the adaption actually is.

Interesting episode. Cow girls decision to stay sure was brave of her and indicative of how she much values and cares about GS. The scene where GS made his request at the guild though was impressive. The elf and parties response to the request also did well to show the strong bonds that had been forged between them. Guild girl's contribution though was the decisive blow though. The battle though sure was impressive particularly in the tactics that were used by both sides. It was seeing each of the support characters contribute their own way in the battle. GS's extensive knowledge on goblin tactics really came in handy. Can't wait to see how this battle will end next week in the finale.

Great episode. I learned from previous episode discussions that this arc was supposed to happen sooner, but I am glad they made this the last arc. There's more buildup for the impact when Goblin Slayer asked for help and the adventurers coming together for him.

This fight really shows how much of an expert is Goblin Slayer. He completely predicted all of the goblins' movement. I am interested in how will he defeat the lord though. He seemed to have trouble against a goblin champion in the previous arc afterall.

This arc is way better as the finale. Much bigger impact, and it ends the show with a bang. GS' strategy seems to be working perfectly so far, and there don't seem to be many issues at the moment. The last shot of this episode was pretty hype, and I'm looking forward to seeing GS vs. the Goblin Lord.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

This was great!

Cow Girl in tears is just heartbreaking :(

How GS asked the other adventurers at the guild for help was really nice. Then Guild Girl who goes one step beyond that and actually made a quest for slaying those goblins that GS need help with. Guild Girl proves again to be best girl!

GS is a genius when it comes to strategies for killing goblins. Now the Hob's are going to be a real challenge for the adventurers, while he himself is going to take on the Goblin Lord!

Can't wait for next week!

The build up to this episode and Goblin Slayer asking for help was perfectly adapted and as wholesome in the manga.
Although I wonder why they bothered to censor so much of this episode compared to the first episode.

I was sort of hoping for the Goblin Lord speech. I hope they will at least show the Goblin Lord's history next episode.

Everything about Cowgirl lowers the quality of the show, hard to enjoy a serious show with dumb fan service characters. Hey dumb-ass he wanted you to leave so he could fight without worrying about you, but hey stick around, be a distraction.

Other than that, the rest of the episode was fun, good to see the other character getting a chance to show their stuff. Also the Goblin Lord running away after sending out his hobs and champions, what a coward.

The best episode of Goblin Slayer. Better than the Water Town arc.
Being able to understand and analyze deep social message from anime does not make you an intellectual person.

Yeah, Goblin Lord's speech was one of the best parts in the manga.

Personally I liked this arc in the manga and the speech Goblin Slayer gave was powerful. The anime did a solid job in recreating that feel.

The show may have gone severely downhill in the last few episodes, but this episode was decent. Action still looked wonky but atleast there was a bit of heart and soul in this particular episode.

The lone appeal is having a tad bit more gore and blood to it, tbh
otherwise, it's turning out to be a run-of-the-mill fantasy series
I'm genuinely disappointed, even though this episode was kinda fun to watch.
Berserk 1997 was far far superior, though.

Glad to see they didn't fuck up this episode too much. It was actually the first good one since... well, the first episode. Animation was lacking and brutality toned down way too much but at this point it's hard to expect anything better. Apparently sexual deviants are fine but showing someone die is a big no-no in anime...

Dope ! I just regret one thing : the lack of Goblin Lord's monolog, which was (in the manga version at least) really dirty, nasty and disgusting. It would have given such a wind of hatred for the viewers, toward goblins.

Anyway, still a very awaited & satisfying episode, with the appropriated rythm. I'm really curious to see how they will fill the whole 24 minutes for last episode (considering the last fight will last... hum let's say half of the episode max) !

It was obviously going to be goblin slayer going after the Lord, if only his fight was gonna happen in front of the adventurers so he doesn't have try to prove himself further. A great episode nonetheless.

Why did that red haired one have to say, "I'm staying behind too."
No, just no. Stop being an idiot, only holding him back.
Finale next week. yaaaaasss.

The action scenes were trash!

Shot composition is horrible here, there were some chop, CG blood, still-images sequences, and this is an important time to have it done right. I have a feeling the last episode is going to be worse when it should feel tense and epic, the Goblin Lord is the most interesting character in the series, but hey, they fucked up every other episode so can trust the studio to mess it up.

Everything is rushed and the voice acting kills the tension. Really, I think this is the only time I have said something like this, for this arc, if you haven't already, just read the manga. Trust me, its definitely better, judging from this episode. Even the scenes of the adventurers butchering the goblins and riders are more epic. Doesn't have that feeling here.

0.1/5

p.s - seems like the studio chickened out and didn't go for the MUH EDGE meat shield scene in its "full glory" as some say, they censored it.

-
nice, more trash talk from your part, also what did you want?
obviously the would censore the meat shield and would be uncensored in the blu-rays

Now this is what I'm talking about. Still not great, but entertaining and way better than the boring slice of life parts.

Especially liked the speech.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

there's no way they could unintentionally make this episode bad ,it could be better but the one we have is already really good

the meat shield appear for a split second and then got blurred out ,at least its there

really liking lancer and paladin in the raid the fight scene looks really good

it does show how desperate gs when he ask for help in the guild ,and guild girl save the day ,with the quest from the guild

i hope there's season 2 ,or at least ova of the harvest festival ,i really do

still wondering with all that army ,why gs only went to the lord alone ,next episode an epic 1vs1(but we all know the priestess gonna be there to do the usual "goburin sulaiya-san goburin sulaiya-san")

Like how it showed those adventurers actually being good at something. Especially Lancer, who, I always suspected to be just talk. Guess I was wrong.

I also wonder what exactly his relation is with Mage Girl, and whether Mage Girl actually got captured by goblins before and had her vocal cords damaged, or if she's simply putting something in that kiseru other than regular tobacco.

She wasn't holding him back, as she knew he would be staying to die in any case, not to win. Also, she makes the cattle argument, which basically means that she and her uncle would live a miserable uncertain life in any case, as there is no Obamacare or any other wellfare/benefit arrangement in GS' world.

I doubt she got damaged by goblin ,i just gonna call her sword maiden 2.0 if she did

And between the mage girl and lancer
Just like between Guts(i forgot his name) and paladin probably in a way love interest , its showed in the side story manga she got jealous whenever lancer ask about guild girl

They're from the same party and the Mage/Witch has unrequited love towards Lancer/Spearman though he didn't notice it. As for her speech pattern, I heard it was just her witch-y habit/ paranoia of not saying a sentence in one go to prevent accidental invocation of spell that might kill her and those around her.

Where was this episode 9 weeks ago?

Wizard girl's voice is too annoying btw.

Decent episode. I hope this series finale isn't as underwhelming as how it has been entirely
Just give them a pair of over sized breasts and a happy ending and they'll oink for more every time
