What is Goblin Slayer about?
The world of fantasy is very complex, and the advent of adventures is common as are adventurers. And in this world, adventurers fulfill contracts to steal that gold and that glory. In the future, a priestess joins the guild for her first adventure.
His very first adventure involves Goblins, which go awry as the rest of his guild is either knocked out of life or taken out of play on commission. Her life is on the line when a man named “Goblin Slayer” shows up to save her. He is known as such because his sole purpose in life is to put an end to the goblins.
Will there be a Goblin Slayer season 2?
GA Bunko made an announcement regarding the second season on January 31, 2021 due to their 15th anniversary celebrations at GA FES 2021, a live event. So, now we know our favorite anime definitely has a season 2, but when?
The novel series summarizes up to 15 volumes, and the first season of the anime covered up to the first four volumes of the novel series. The parallel story, Goblin Slayer: Goblin Crown, took the fifth volume in the series.
That now leaves us with the remaining 10 volumes of source material, which is more than enough for a few seasons. And also the second season will be adapted from these few volumes of novels.
The exact date for Season 2 has yet to be confirmed. However, the premiere of the second season will most likely take place in the later months of 2021 or early 2022.
Is Goblin Slayer on Netflix?
Netflix has become a very handy platform for all new / old movies, shows and our favorite animes. However, not all of them go through the clean criteria of Netflix’s selection panel. In addition, Netflix presents shows and movies by region.
This brings us to the point that the anime may be available in one region of the world and may not be created in another. We have a similar case with Goblin Slayer. What regions / countries is the anime available in?
Sadly, the anime is not yet available on the US Netflix platform, but you can watch it on FUNimation or Hulu with English dubbing. Whereas, if you prefer to watch it with Japanese dub and trust your amazing Japanese skills, you can watch it on Hulu, FUNimation, and Crunchyroll as well. Canada also has the same websites that provide the service.
Nonetheless, the popular anime is available in Germany and its home country, Japan, but not yet in other countries. Anime fans in Australia can binge-watch Season 1 on AnimeLab. British fans can also watch it on Crunchyroll.
