Goblin Slayer anime, also known as Goburin Suriya in japan, is based on a successful light novel. the light novel series is written by Kumo Kagyu and illustrated by Noboru Kannatsuki.
But, the IMDB rating, which is 7.5 clears the doubt about the series and gives you a valid point why you must watch it if you haven’t yet. Similarly, the Rotten totes also rate 72%, which is way more than an average anime series.

How well did the blu-ray sell? The Blu-ray sold roughly 3,7000 copies per disk for the first season. which is decent for 2018. the movie sold 5,000 copies. anything above 3,000 is good since people don’t buy blu-ray sales as much as they used to.
How well does the light novel sell? Volume 14sold around 19,000 copies, and the latest volume 15 sold 16,000 copies. for a series with anime, it isn’t selling that well. the goblin slayer manga sells better with each volume selling around 100,000 copies.

This might serve as a spoiler so, if you are faint of heart don’t read this section. But those of you, who can’t wait to see it in the anime let’s see what season 2 will be all about.
Season one had concluded on a note of victory. Goblin Slayer and other adventurers had managed to kill a huge herd of goblins who were trying to attack the farm where Goblin Slayer lived.
There were also talks about how goblins will continue their attacks on humans despite the Hero slaying the Demon Lord. Moreover, we saw Goblin Slayer developing friendships despite his traumatic childhood memories.
The most important aspect that the first season had deliberately hidden was Goblin Slayer’s face.
All these give plenty of leads for the storyline to continue in the next season. Hopefully, we will get to see more slaying of goblins, more friendships, and a reveal of our dark protagonist’s face.
The latest trailer of season 2 is from January 2021, and you can watch it below. The Trailer of Season 2 is yet to be released.
