I really want to go to that expo in LA just to see the man himself who created this amazing novel. Imagine all those GS related merchandise for sale too.

It would be cool that you are one of the few who attends their presentation/panel/interview before this gets really big once the anime begins.

Anybody going to see them in July?

It would be funny if he wears a mask too during the expo.

like he said he has 10 years of practice behind it, and his success is not a fluke, very seldom does a LN newbie got paired with a decent mangaka for adaptation right off the gate, usually the publisher will wait a bit to see if it is successful, and most LN manga adaption are done by second tiles quality mangaka, you can tell the publisher knew they had something good and heavily promote it from the beginning. (manga adaption with good artist->CD drama->2 manga gaiden->anime)

privacy, once you lost it you never get it back, not having photos of faces available to public is a very common practice among Japanese authors, be it manga or novel all the same.

that depends, the fair personals always respect the guests wishes, sometime they will request the audience no photograph during the paneling/signing, but you get to see the real faces of the authors as one of the perks going to the exhibit, and some authors are really worth the price of admission since they are so mysterious for so long, and most of the time when those mysterious author’s face leaks out it is via iligal pictures taken at the exhibit.

and if Kumo decides to show up with a mask, we knew 100% is would be dead pool, his avatar since the beginning.

apparently we have another gaiden.

Goblin Slayer Gaiden 2 Kannon's sword "Die · Katana"
http://ga.sbcr.jp/bunko_blog/cat381/20180528/

from description of the story “ordinary adventurers save the world after a normal adventure”, it is possible, my guess, is they will tell the story of Sword Maiden and the King before they become Sword Maiden and the King, but don’t quote me on that. they might just end up telling another priestess's story.

I've recalled other Japanese authors and artists in the past have not wanted to appear on camera, such as Masamune Shirow, in interviews.

Like I think there's a DVD special feature that has an interview of Masamune Shirow about Ghost in the Shell, and he appears as like an animated character answering the questions.

These guys might also be a little camera shy and shy about showing their faces on camera.

Now Shinichi Watanabe, he basically is Nabeshin and goes to all his convention appearances as Nabeshin. The dude is a hoot. Seeing Nabeshin at Anime Expo was one of my favorite experiences ever. He understands a little bit of English and will make jokes in English. Like a fan didn't understand about getting his shows on DVD, and he was like, "DO YOU KNOW DVD?!" in English. It doesn't sound as funny as it was but you had to be there.

Kagyu does seem to be a prodigy in many ways. His storytelling is topnotch IMO, and he seems to do a great job at getting his scripts done in a timely manner.

Now that he's working on the anime, I hope he doesn't get burnt out. I am blown over by the quality of his work and now we got two spin-offs. OK, I mean I get the side story one is basically just adapting the stories from Volume 4, but still.

And yeah, the manga artists also do a great job of interpreting his work. I had chills when I read Goblin Slayer on the brink of death and rallying back against that horde in that crypt. And then seeing it in manga form gave me a different kind of chill. Like I thought that scene in the light novel was epic. To put it plainly, I don't think American writers can write scenes that good sometimes for TV show and a major Hollywood blockbuster.

If that scene ever gets animated, if the right team does it, holy crap, it could be one of the greatest scenes ever.

Interestingly, some older generations of mangaka have been/are more willing to appear on camera compared to their younger counterparts.

For example, it's very easy to find recent pics of old-timers like Hara Tetsuo (Fist of the North Star), Chiba Tetsuya (Ashita no Joe) and Moto Hagio (Heart of Thomas).

most likely because it is far harder to keep their identity secret; once it's got out; it will never go back

Goblin Slayer must be more popular than I initially thought because some fans actually did an English fan dub of the audio drama CD.

I don't think I've ever seen that before. Then again, I've not actively searched for fan dubs of drama CD's before. I'm sure some exist, but this is the first time I noticed one do one.

I hope that bodes well for the story's popularity after it gets an anime.

Judging by Sword Maiden's current state, her story is anything but a happy ending. So, let me guess: The samurai must be the first human pinătă to the goblin horde...

Aren't lancers supposed to have terrible luck? I am betting on the pointy stick to bite first.

If this is focused on sword maiden. Perhaps the samurai might have a sword tombstone. Wonder what will the author write about their demise. Location, wrong equipment or luck.

At least the SAM is wearing a helmet.

Thanks for sharing the info.

Can someone elaborate what book 9 is about? I assume it is not volume 9 but I can not imagine what a special guide is about.

Someone kind enough to enlighten me?

we would not know what book 9 story is about until book 8 is out. Kumo typically mention the next story’s location in a one sentence blurb in the author’s words at the back of the book.

the guide is just that, guide, collecting the 5 special in store bonus bundle from book 1 to book 5 (the one you have to actually buy from a specific store in order to obtain, think of all the Danmachi store bundle.)

https://twitter.com/GA_SATO/status/1009306888394047488

into one 88 pages booklet, revised it like a dictionary, and called it the “Goblin Slayer Encyclopedia”, comes bundle with the limited edition book 9, so it is NOT a novel.

example listed like, what is a goblin, (strength: 2, skill: 5), what does Orcbolg means, (goblin, blade) etc.

Thanks for your time explaining this. So the special guide is an encyclopedia (kind of).


Allow me to ask for some clarification. I thought book 9 in your post is the special guide itself, but you mention this guide is just bundled with book 9.

Does it mean that we will actually have a 9th volume in December, two months later after volume 8 in October?

If yes, it would really surprise me that book 8 & 9 get released within two months instead of one book half a year.

Sword Maiden past

To give my two cents:

I don't expect that her partymembers (samurai and spearwoman) will die. Maybe one of of them, but not both.

I guess the story would be just too simple and predictable when you make her party die. 'She is still sad in the future, therefore her party must have died in the past' is a conclusion done too easy, so I think the author will try to avoid it.
The author did manage to make his stories unpredictable for the most part (one important reason of many why I like Goblin Slayer very much), so I think he will avoid too many partymember kills because their deaths is something we will already expect, and the author wants to surprise us and keep the suspense.

Sword Maiden's friends don't have to be dead in the first place, maybe they have no time for her like the King.
In Volume 4 it was mentioned that people in high positions just don't have time to do what they want because of all the responsibilities they have.
The King lamented that he can't even visit his friend (Sword Maiden) without having a pretext. They had a talk about their situations and their past, but officially he was there to lend some warpriest from Sword Maiden.

Sword Maiden herself complains that she can't go after Goblin Slayer because of her duties she has to comply to (which makes the King curious who that person is that Sword Maiden is suddenly fond of).

So we see, beeing high and mighty is not that easy in the world of Goblin Slayer.


As for her beeing broken: I think it is wrong to expect in general that partymembers can fix their broken companions. Only Goblin Slayer could do someting about it because he is a special case. Other people have trouble to comprehend her trauma and problem in the first place.

Even Goblin Slayer's partymembers are not really aware of his past experience. They know that he is weird and that he acts like the Doom Guy, but they don't really comprehend what he went through. So they give him advices to make him more sociable, but I would not call it a fix.

Sword Maiden and Goblin Slayer both tend to not talk about their trauma that much in the first place for different reasons. Sword Maiden feared that she would be mocked and not taken seriously (If I remember it right).

Thing is, partymembers are more like colleagues than close friends, and you just don't tell your colleagues your tragic past. That goes for Sword Maiden as well.
And even if you tell them, it does not mean they can help you afterward.



That is my guess, but in the end we just have to read it to see for ourselves (or wait for a summary ).
