Once upon a time, there is an adventurer who is obsessed with goblins. Wherever he goes, he hunts goblins. His achievement even makes him a seasoned adventurer just looking at his experience bashing goblin’s heads left and right.
Dark fantasy light novel created by Kagyuu Kumo successfully broadens the perspective of the horrifying the usual low-level creature, the goblin. His work is popular enough to earn the anime adaptation and a movie. Now, the anime has received a renewal for the second season.
Below, we’ve gathered information about Goblin Slayer starting from the trailer, key visuals, staff, cast, and release date. Read on!
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Trailer
The announcement for Goblin Slayer renewal was revealed back at GA Fest 2021. The event was held on January 31, 2021, and Kannatsutki Noboru, Goblin Slayer’s original illustrator, released the visual to commemorate the second season of Goblin Slayer.
After the revelation, there was no news for two following years. The marketing campaign started in 2023 when the official re-broadcasted the first season of Goblin Slayer in ABEMA. Not only that, they also released the first teaser on January 5, 2023.
The video above is the second Goblin Slayer Season 2 trailer which was released on August 4, 2023. There is no plot or story worth mentioning in the trailer except the usual Goblin Slayer slaying goblins right and left. The only thing new is the appearance of a young red-hair magician who will appear in the second season.
Other than that, we can see that LIDEN FILMS does a great job of creating the same high-quality visual as the first season that was animated at WHITE FOX. Even though it is common to have different quality between seasons because of different studios.
The key visual was released on March 25. The visual shows three heroines, priestess, elf archer, and sword maiden, and goblin slayer. Below, we have the second season logo with its catchphrase “He does not let anyone roll the dice” in English. The catchphrase reflects Goblin Slayer who always prepares thoroughly before hunting the goblins.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 is slated to premiere in October 2023. Episodes 1 and 2 were already previewed at a screening at AnimagiC in Mannheim, Germany on August 4, 2023. Crunchyroll already pockets the license to broadcast the second season worldwide.
