Goblin Slayer Season 2 is set in motion and nothing can stop this brutal and bloody dark fantasy to set the anime industry on fire.

Goblin Slayer Season 2 Announcement & Poster
The newly released visual for the Goblin Slayer Season 2 anime is out and it features a photo of the titular character of Goblin Slayer all bruised up with all kinds of battle scars on his body, while blood pours out from above in the background.
With an anime as controversial as Goblin Slayer returning, it seems like more gruesome and explicit depictions of dark fantasy have only grown since anime like Overlord and Re: Zero.

While not being one of the massive IPs to lead forward the dark fantasy genre, Goblin Slayer is deemed as one of the worst first-episode animes of all time. The first episode of Goblin Slayer made viewers shake in their seats with fear and disgust.
But luckily or unluckily, the second season of Goblin Slayer will be coming sometime next year, while no concrete date or release schedule has been announced except for the fact that Goblin Slayer’s second season is now in production.
Goblin Slaying Adventure
The initial Goblin Slayer runs from 6 Oct 2018 completing its first season on 30 Dec 2018. It was one of the animes in the Winter Season 2019 lineup. It was animated by the White Fox studio which is known for its work in other anime like Steins Gate, Re: Zero and Kill La Kill among others.
The story revolves around a nameless band of adventurers who are led by the Goblin Slayer, an adventurer bent on killing goblins after a harrowing incident leaves a member of the team with a traumatic experience.
One of the themes of the show is the nameless expedition that the crew of the show has set off. The general gist of the show is the mindless slaughter of goblins with extreme prejudice which governs the team’s motivations.
Controversy Around Goblin Slayer
One of the biggest things that put Goblin Slayer on the map was the extreme reaction to the first episode of the show. The marketing for the anime was done in a way that made it look like something that was a serious and mature take on the fantasy genre.
But when the first episode dropped, it took the anime fanbase by storm for its vulgar and brutal depiction of harassment done towards one of the female adventurers by the goblins that populate this world.
Though the initial reaction that the show received have drowned out when the rest of the show completed its run, the reputation that the show gained was detrimental to the future of the show.
This lead many fans to believe that Goblin Slayer would never be renewed for a new season, but now we have official confirmation about the second season going into production.
Fans’ Reaction to Goblin Slayer Season 2
Goblin Slayer generated a hefty discussion when it was first released back in 2018, but now that it is back fans can’t wait for the second season
Goblin Slayer season 2? Hell yeah wkwk

But, since Goblin Slayer has had a bad reputation with anime fans, some are not so happy with how Goblin Slayer with its infamous first episode has been greenlit for another season while anime like No Game No Life is stuck in production hell.
oh no… goblin slayer….
