How the Goblin Lord got the battle-ax is only in the manga and not mentioned the light novel. It was an adaptive element. In general, the anime hues closer to the light novels.

Also some of the things you mentioned were basically in the episode.

The fights were better than last week's. I really liked the ones against the Goblin champions. It shows that there can be quite a gap in strength among silver ranked adventurers. I'm not talking about Goblin Slayer here who we know is a specialist, but the rest of his party. Lizard, Dwarf and Elf would be hard pressed to defeat a Champion on their own.

Priestess was really badass in this ep. I was afraid the lord's pleading was going to get to her (which would have been stupid) but she didn't even bat an eye. She really has grown.

GS has also grown. He actually wants to become a "proper" adventurer now. Elf will be delighted to hear that. Him removing his helmet in front of everyone was a nice moment, it's a shame we didn't get to see his face.

Overall, this was a good series. There were other shows this season I wish had gotten a S2 confirmation over this one, but I'm still looking forward to it.

I was mildly surprised to see Cow Girl did not seem jealous of Priestess at all and seemed to go out of her way to leave the two alone together after Priestess woke up. Then again she knows he will always come home to her.

I think the way GS fights is also very characteristic of DnD battles. A good DnD player uses clever tricks and environmental advantage to defeat enemies without engaging in combat, because combat is risky (due to the dice). To "defy" the dice in DnD is to convince the DM that this weird usage of your spell/skill results in an instakill, or failing that, at least creates an overwhelming advantage that minimizes the risk when forced to engage in combat. Assuming the gods (DM) isn't actively trying to sabotage you, they'll let things play out to a reasonably logical conclusion. Rather than seeing GS as a character, I see him more as a crafty player. Meanwhile, a player like the lancer fights by having good equipment and being at a high level with powerful abilities/passives. But roll a few natural 1s and it's KO no matter how "strong" your character is.

Well, it's a discussion forum. Any opinion is welcome, as long as you're not trying to shove it down other people's throats.

Interesting to see they announced that it will have another season as the anime have pretty much covered current major arcs in the manga currently, thus it will be loooooong wait if they don't plan to spoil the manga readers on LN content. (The manga main series is a monthly publication).

Overall, the show was ok. The budget isnt high but they kept the story straight from the source with some adds and minus to the details. The major plus point for me to this show was the music, I like most of Mili's song in it. The special end was really good feeling to a fantasy story end.

to priestress, the adventures won't have accepted the quest if he didn't ask like he did and less without guild girl help, that just idealist thinking from her.

great serie, looking foward to the second season but I think I'll jump to the manga from the beginning. 8/10.

Excellent conclusion to the season. Nice seed for the next one (The Hero and her retinue are apparently heading to Goblin Slayer's town for the festival). Love the betting pool on what GS actually looked like

Very glad to see Priestess' maturation. There is no way she could have done that, especially driving the sword shard deeper into the Goblin Lord, at the beginning of the Season.


This wrap up was better than if they had stuck with the source material's order of arcs, as this one included everyone but Sword Maiden.

Well done.

Goblin Slayer. Final Thoughts

What I enjoyed the most about Goblin Slayer was that to me it subverted the standard trope found common among high fantasy stories that is the MC embarking on a quest or adventure in order to come full circle in his or her character growth to become a proper protagonist as foretold by prophecy to save the world.

Instead, Goblin Slayer delivered a microcosm within a universe focusing on the eponymous MC ridding his known world of nothing short of goblins while carrying a huge vendetta against them for the destruction of his village and the murder of his sister in the past. He cared less for any other worldly matters outside of his personal environment that had nothing to do with Goblins such as the Demon King's invasion.

That's what I liked the most about this show focusing on someone's else trivial story that happened to take place in a bigger universe, yet keeping the plot contained in such a smaller microcosm. It made for the pacing to be tightened and progressing straightforward since Goblin Slayer meant business only against Goblins and nothing more. Nevertheless, a driving force in the anime came from outsiders in the likes of Priestess, Cow Girl, High Elf Archer, Dwarf Shaman, and Lizard Priest unwittingly getting themselves thrown into the chaos in order to cross paths with Goblin Slayer. From there on, the ride became more interesting as that party of five came to share experiences and stories with each other allowing to stir within the Goblin Slayer the potential to connect with comrades, to value his existence more than just meaning to kill goblins for the rest of his days, and for as well muster up courage and wisdom to ask help from others when realizing oneself own limitations without feeling embarrassed.

I do begin to understand that many of you out there cannot appreciate much this show given that at many times turns formulaic and repetitive, since GS doesn't move outside of his scope hunting goblins when he could at least spare some free time doing adventure side quests as much as High Elf Archer wished from him.

Still, I can vouch for this adaptation moving forward without any pretense and keeping that much invested for Goblin Slayer and his party. By the way, for me the soundtrack is a must in my list to acquire since contain many beautiful songs and tracks.

Can only hope that a future season comes.

This is an adaptation of the LN, not the manga, so they'll just continue adapting more LN volumes. People seem to have an incredibly hard time understanding this for some reason.

Watched episode 12:

Ah what can I say. Sweet moment when Goblin Slayer slowly slits the throat of the Goblin Lord with a broken sword, a much deserved end for the most misogynist gob.

Spear Man really brave, did he calculate that the gob champion he was facing would narrowly miss with the chain anchor? Witch just smoking, she knows Spear Man can handle it alone.

Priestess really matured throughout their adventures. Looking forward to seeing more of her together with GS.

Erm...it seemed to me @Jazzrat was meaning that, to not get Manga Readers behind, they might wait for the Manga to advance enough to cover an Anime Season2.

But I also think that's of little to no consequence, and the staff may get to it whether the Manga went that far or not, since they have the LNs as Prime Source

Yup, while the source and promotion is very much around the Light Novel, i wonder if people would even want to buy the manga if the anime have gone past it (eventhough i personally would especially for the artwork of the main series and prequel spin off).

Just don't understand the reasoning behind what was said is all. Why wait for a separate adaptation to catch up to more main source when the anime is acting as advertisement for said main source, not the other adaptation.

It's true that there's hardly an example of a LN Series with a Manga Adaptation in which the Anime waited for the Manga to advance before a sequel was aired, as far as I know, of course.
But @Jazzrat may have had in mind that there's a lot of Manga-only Readers who might not care about the LNs and feel left out if said Anime were to advance from where they're following the Manga.

That's still just the same as any LN with a manga adaptation. LN publisher wants LN sales to increase in the end. Manga-only readers that won't transition are a secondary concern by comparison.

Did that many adventurers die in the fight, I wonder. The equipment for remembrance seem to fill a whole bench. The deaths we see is 2 from the champs and one more that Apprentice Cleric was tending to. Did they take the equipment from the Goblins...

I'm not a huge fan of Goblin Slayer... but I really like to read something different from what I have read occasionally
it is a simple story with no complex political stuff... just slay goblins every day
waiting to see what kind of challenges he would face
for myself, Goblin Slayer's rating would always 9/10 simply because I can't really handle the gory, rape stuff

but for the adaptation for the anime, I'll give it 10/10
the reason is... they made some changes from the original source, and those changes are actually stuffs that I could not handle..
for example about Goblin Lord's axe.. for me, it is not something significant because even in manga, we don't see how good that axe is
so removing it from anime, is actually not that bad

I agree that Goblin Slayer's main plot is to see how much he would grow... try to compare him from first episode to 13th episode
He changed a bit... and watching the interaction between all characters are great
In the end, they wrapped it up by showing the scene where Goblin Slayer revealed his face and look at all the responses... He is ridiculed for killing goblins only but he is actually loved by all guild members
That last statement about being an adventurer also hinted that he might be accept some suggestions to face non-goblin enemies in the future

I'll be happy to watch season 2.. I started to be able to predict all Goblin Slayers' answers lately ("yeah", "no problem", "it's ok", "I'll try") and I want to hear Yui Ogura's soft voice every week again

yeah.. I'll give this 10/10 based on how good the anime is
