Goblin Slayer [Light Novel]



Author: Kagyu Kumo
Illustrator: Kanntuki Noboru

Spoiler for Volume 1 illustrations:
The series centers on a man who desires to become an "adventurer," but insists on only killing goblins. The story begins with a female priest who has just joined a party, but quickly gets in trouble. She is saved by the man known as the "Goblin Slayer," a man who is ranked Silver (third highest) in his local guild in subduing goblins. In the story, he says, "I won't save the world, I just kill goblins." After hearing rumors about him, a female elf approaches him with a request.

Spoiler for Small segment I translated from the novel because I hate you guys, except Solace because he scares me:

Dont know if you can keep the illustrations on since yenpress seems to have licensed it.
Maybe it would be better to keep only the ones from preview/sample.
BTW people interested in the wn, here it is.

This is one of the better selling new titles out there (well "new").

**7,633部 *11,185部 16/02/12 **10日 ゴブリンスレイヤー
*11,668部 *11,668部 16/05/12 ***4日 ゴブリンスレイヤー 2  *早売り1.5日

In 4 days this outsold volume 1's equivalent in 10 days. Based on POS, Bunkyoudou, and Tsutaya ranking, this may able to hit 20k this week (data later today?). GA's been pretty heavily advertising this (almost annoyingly so).

Going to provide something about this, just because the manga showed something that can be misleading.

I look at the first chapter of the manga (Korean so I don't understand the text) and it ended in a cliffhanger. May I ask for some spoilers?

It specifically says " when they are alone" .
The noobs probably found some random weak goblin in the woods kinda like in grimgar.

Interesting. What are the chances he's a goblin? Or at least not human?

And that's why you should always confirm the situation before attacking.

That red eye in one of the color pic does feel inhuman.

No, that's actually him. The storty goes from a decent start to the common and overused adventure story.

That's sad. I was expecting something like Berserk but with a RPG twist.
