    Thought the animation was good and the ending theme with all the drum beats fits the dark fantasy theme well.

    I heard this show has rape onscreen? And is the edgiest shit in years.

    But yeah Normie Slayer seems right. This squad of scrubs got zerg rushed like trash and tried to fight goblins in low light caves at low levels with shit equipment and no armor? Smoke them out you retards. Even more sad they could have mooched of a badass to carry their sorry behinds when the Guild Rep told them to? They deserve to all fucking die for such stupidity.

    This show's main appeal is the protagonist. The first episode didn't have this yet, but his obsession with goblins is a comedy goldmine. Plus he's so serious and methodical about his work, you just can't help but respect the guy.

    Nobody cares about rape, though fans like to joke about it and predict who'll be the next to get gobbed.

    Kinda controversial relations with this series, from one side it's dark and unforgiving, on the other had there is a bunch of annoying MMORPG mechanics that killing any realism of this setting. Ridiculous fixated classes, excessive amount of female adventurist, completely non viable reproductive system of goblins, last two serves for shock content only.
    But not bad first episode I guess.

    In such conditions peasants, would most likely organized some form of militia, rather than appealed into a guild, for help which may never come.

    I mean I suppose the reproduction works if they were say created by some Dark Wizard in the lab.

    But yeah the characters act more like they got transported into this world from an Isekai then they grew up in this world.

    Compare this to Overlord we saw a party enter a dungeon and get raped by Ainz but at least in their case the level of power of Ainz and friends is beyond compression in that World. That is world where one Death Knight is a major raid boss. Whereas Ainz shits them out for free. Now sure they weren't noobs but this party failed on every level I am surprised the fighter didn't forget his sword and even remembered to bring a single fucking torch.

    Realistically, there is no explanation why the Goblins haven't been wiped out yet from what we know
    but who cares

    Doubly so when you consider they reproduce by raping Human Females...Humans have gone full genocide on animals and ourselves for less then that hell for the accusation that the other side wants to rape our women...but here we got a species that literally needs to rape women and they are still an active threat? I don't buy it.

    Manga throws a half-assed excuse to explain why the fuck they're still around but I wouldn't put much thought into it. This isn't supposed to taken seriously, it's all style, no substance. Just enjoy Goblin Slayer for the Goblin Slaying.

    Fair Enough but the Defense is its just Dark not Edgy...so in my book if that the Defense well then the dark shit needs to make some logical sense past the basic RPG Based fantasy points we have to grudgingly accept likes Classes, Levels and Exp. Its like Sci-Fi where you handwave the Faster than Light travel causes its a genre necessity.

    Most japanese fantasy authors are so devoid of any real talent that they can't think of a Dungeons and Dragons setting without literal gameplay mechanics.

    It's necessary for game balance issues. Tolkien was able to write Lord of the Rings without mentioning that Aragorn is level 50 warrior.

    Funny thing is Aragorn isnt all that powerful on a DnD Scale assuming 3.5 or Pathfinder but I take your point...however the basis of most of the current shit is videogames and tabletops so.

    Depends if you think a poor as fuck militia with nothing but garden hoe's and pitchforks would be useful in a cave of goblins. Counting the strong goblins that can casually throw people around and the shamens which have magic. You send 50 people in their only for 25 of them to get slaughtered, it would have been better to leave it to the professionals.

    I don't think the series is super realistic, if Goblins were such a threat, newbie adventures would have been better informed on the matter.

    Have you ever played DnD? A lot of great stories are based on tabletop campaigns, even Anime. DnD itself is a ruleset that is highly modular, the setting itself can be anything.

    I get the feeling Goblin Slayer is going to school the other silver adventurers at some point :ufdup

    I reallly DON'T LIKE the opening though.
    Something like this would fit better imo

    I liked the OP and the ED. When are they going to release the full versions?
    Good episode, but I'm bummed about one detail: GS was supposed to say the "from their point of view, I am the goblin" line in the guild and disturb the Guild Girl.

    the music made his backstory more emotional for me imo. It seemed more crazed in the manga but the anime is just kinda pitable.

    Sadly they watered the second episode down. Hopefully they don't pander to all the SJWs that can't handle gritty content.

    The manga is absolutely stunning by the way, in case anyone had doubts. I'm going to have to read the novel as well.

    We don't NEED violence, murder or conflict. :lmao

    If you don't like it don't watch it, stay away from Game of Thrones while your at it.

    I like this anime/manga/novel...it's so good to have a protagonist who isn't embarassed by shit things, knows his trade but doesn't brag and doesn't give a single fuck what anyone thinks...

    I just realized that none of the recurring characters have any proper names revealed lol. Maybe they don't have any?
