You know that Goblin Slayer Season 1 contains only twelve episodes. Meanwhile, the original light novel series consists of eight volumes. As a result, the first installment covers only the two first volumes of the series. We have thereby a lot of source material for another television adaptation. Another good point is that the current season was a success among the target audience. The viewers were mostly impressed with the anime, given the data presented by MAL, 7.56 > 57,000 votes. Without a doubt we should wait for the result of the BD/DVD sales to see the full picture. As a rule, the money plays the key role in the decision on renewal.
Looks like the White Fox studio started promoting the anime on Blue-Ray and DVD. The sales start in 2019, according to the official announcement. So, soon we learn how successful the franchise is. Right now is clear that Goblin Slayer Season 2 would rather happen than not. Nonetheless, we will have to wait for the official announcement, which might confirm our forecast.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Release Date
Since the BD/DVD sales start only in 2019, we doubt that we might see the 2nd installment of the Goblin Slayer anime earlier than in 2020. However, we don't rule out that if the sales were successful, White Fox might release Goblin Slayer Season 2 next fall. The only bad sign is that White Fox is the studio, which doesn't hurry up to pick up their masterpieces for other seasons. That's why Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu, Akame ga Kill!, and other successful anime series are still in the long-term hiatus. We hope that Goblin Slayer could avoid this fate.
Goblin Slayer Brief Overview
The story takes place in a fantasy world where the adventurers are hired for various missions. They enlist in the Guilds to work on numerous contracts. A 15-year-old priestess, who has just finished her education, joins one Guild consisted of the same rookies eager to use their skills in favor. Their first mission becomes a contract which key mission is to eliminate the den of goblins. However, because of the lack of their skills all the guild members die, except the priestess and a fighter, who were raped by the goblins. They were rescued by a stranger known as Goblin Slayer, who later takes priestess under his wing to teach her all the techniques and methods how to fight goblins, who threaten people.
Summing up, in our opinion, Goblin Slayer has a good chance for renewal for Season 2. There is more than enough source material. Besides, a reception by the viewers looks excellent. We're waiting for the official announcement by the White Fox studio. Once the studio announces the renewal and the exact release date for another round, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates.
