Japanese anime never fails to surprise fans with their controversial and gory scenes that never cease to make news on the Internet. The super hit anime “Goblin Slayer” featured a questionable scene in its very first episode but was applauded for the subsequent events that the rest of the seasons offered.
Goblin Slayer is an anime series produced by White Fox and its first season aired in 2018 on Crunchyroll globally. It is based on the light novels by Kumo Kagyu and Noboru Kannatsuki with the same name.
Goblin Season 2 has been officially confirmed but the question is when the new season will be released, what will be its plot and many other things. In this article, you will find everything you are looking for.
Goblin Slayer Lookback
Goblin Slayer 1 introduced its protagonist, a young man who saw his family killed by a gang of goblins when he was a child and now dedicates his life to trapping and killing as many goblins as possible. The first season of Goblin Slayer follows him as he forms a diverse team with a rookie human adventurer named Priestess, a dwarf shaman, a high elf archer, and a lizard priest to challenge a group of goblins led by an extraordinarily brilliant captain named Goblin Lord.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Release Date
The last episode of Goblin Slayer aired about two years ago. In February 2020, an animated movie is known as “Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown” was released. This clearly shows the great popularity of the anime. Even the creators are more than willing to continue the ritual and continue the franchise.
The twelve-part first season of “Goblin Slayer” was directed by Takaharu Ozaki (“Wave!!: Surfing Yappe!!”) at Studio White Fox (“The Devil is a Part-Timer!, Akame ga Kill!“). Yousuke Kuroda (“My Hero Academia”) wrote the screenplay, while Kenichiro Suehiro (“Re:ZERO”) composed the music.
In January 2021, it was officially confirmed that Goblin Slayer would be renewed for a Season 2 at a Livestream event hosted by GA Bunko, the publisher of the Goblin Slayer manga.
GA Bunko also released a compelling poster and teaser which you can watch below, but did not confirm the launch date of season 2.
Based on the timeline of the previous season, it is likely that the dark fantasy anime series Goblin Slayer Season 2 will be released either in late 2021 or early 2022.
Goblin Slayer Season 2: What will be the plot
The details of the plot are as uncertain as to its release date. However, if we guess the plot based on the previous releases of the series, we have arrived at the following theory. As we know that the first season of “Goblin Slayer” was based on the first four volumes of its manga, similarly, the movie followed the events of volume 5. Therefore, it is very likely that season 2 of “Goblin Slayer” will be based on the volume 6 and the following of the manga.
Characters and Cast of Goblin Slayer Season 2
The basic cast of “Goblin Slayer” includes very popular voices such as Yuichiro Umehara as the Goblin Slayer, Yui Ogura as the Priestess, Nao Toyama as the High Elf Archer, Yuichi Nakamura as the Dwarf Shaman, Tomokazu Sugita as the Lizard Priest, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as the Lance Man, Yuka Iguchi as the Cow and Yoko Hikasa as the Witch. For those who are not yet familiar with the series, you will see that the characters do not have real names; they are simply referred to as their archetype.
There is obviously an English dubbing. The actors reprising the Americanized roles from season 1 are Brad Hawkins as the goblin slayer, Hayden Daviau as the priestess, Mallorie Rodak as the High Elf archer, Barry Yandell as the dwarf shaman, Joshua Bangle as the lizard priest, Kyle Igneczi as the spearman, Brittany Lauda as the cowgirl, and Amanda R. Gish as the witch.
It is highly likely that these actors will reprise their respective roles in Season 2 of the Fantasy anime, Goblin Slayer. If the series continues to follow the plot of the manga, new characters will be introduced and it goes without saying that other actors will also be incorporated.
