The highly anticipated second season of Goblin Slayer has been confirmed to premiere on October 6, 2023. The official announcement was made on the anime’s website along with a striking new key visual, setting the stage for the Fall 2023 anime season. Details regarding the release timing in Japan and the specific TV channels for broadcast have also been unveiled.
Based on the manga of the same name by Kumo Kagyu and illustrated by Noboru Kannatsuki, the anime is now being produced by Liden Films, taking over from the previous studio, White Fox, which animated the first season in 2018.
Goblin Slayer is set in a world where adventurers undertake quests for wealth and renown, akin to JRPGs. The story centers around the eponymous adventurer, Goblin Slayer, who uniquely focuses on low-level quests involving the extermination of goblins, despite being more than capable of tackling higher-level challenges. The series stirred controversy due to its portrayal of sensitive themes, notably in its initial episodes.
Viewers can catch the first season of Goblin Slayer on streaming platforms like Crunchyroll and Muse Asia. As for the second season, Crunchyroll has acquired the rights to stream it in various regions, following the announcement at Anime Expo 2023. This news ensures that fans around the world can eagerly anticipate the return of Goblin Slayer and the continuation of its dark fantasy narrative.
