Dark Fantasy Anime ‘Goblin Slayer’ Season 2 Greenlit for October Debut

The genius of Goblin Slayer comes from its uninhibited objective to underscore the savagery of the goblins, thereby forcing the audience to immediately empathize with the low-level adventurers who lost their lives to disgusting green creatures.

The duality of life was beautifully depicted by the anime, showing how a peaceful life can instantly turn into despair. The anime was well-liked by the audience and is finally receiving a sequel after four long years. Here are the details:

On Friday, the official website for Goblin Slayer II, the second season for the anime of Kumo Kagyu’s Goblin Slayer dark fantasy novel series, revealed a new visual and the show’s October 6 debut.
