USA:


Canada:


South America:


Australia:


Europe:

@S0crates I like thats its the most watched though its a shame reviews are mixed. I see Europe and the Middle East prefers Jojo and Slime more though GS completely owns Australia.

Theyre really gonna stretch it out until the end of the month huh. I wonder if the recap gets dubbed too.

I assume this is because of production issues, or maybe they just want to take more time for the last two episodess. Either way, recaps are always a bummer.

No. It's common to have one week without an episode during an anime season.
In that case, there are 13 weeks for the fall 2018 season and Goblin Slayer is 12 episodes long, so instead to have the 13th week without an episode they opted for a recap before the finale.

I'm surprised Goblin Slayer is this watched but I'm not at all surprised that the reviews are mixed.
Assuming that there are people who are keeping up with it there are some people who can't bring themselves to like something but will still watch out of entertainment.

spoiler[well some of the scenes in SAO got censored over the Western streaming services. You can get a side by side view here:

It's not at the levels of Goblin Slayer, but it's one of the darker Sword Art Online episodes for sure. That said Season 2 was probably worse for SAO, as this is pretty tame in comparison, so why they chose to censor this while going ahead with Goblin Slayer is a bit weird in my opinion. Maybe it actually is the other way around that Goblin Slayer legit made SAO more mild than they wanted it to be, because GS got such attention over it.]

I bet they were taken aback by SAO's sexual assault episode, so they're taking more time to juice up the content for the finale. Cool

You should know that only Crunchyrolls release and any other partner company with CR had the censored version.
Every other streamingservice like Wakanim in Germany had the same version like in japan, without any changes.
In that case, CR decided they need to censor it and not the licenseholder from japan.

Ugh recaps are so lazy and completely obsolete with the way people watch tv these days (internet steaming and DVR etc)

And holy Whoah - that SAO scene is way more explicit and disturbing than anything in Goblin Slayer - I apparently had a misconception of what SAO was like ...

I don't know why they even bother with these recap episodes; if they're behind schedule they should just skip a week.

Now that you mention this I am curious about the decision to do a recap episode considering the anime only has 2 episodes left. They usually do these recaps around the midpoint of the season.

And my least favorite part of anime comes along.

Oh well, suppose one less series to keep tabs on for next weekend. Rolling Eyes

From here;
Quote:
Goblin Slayer will be available to Crunchyroll members in the following territories: USA, Canada, South Africa, UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, Netherlands, ANZ and Latin America.

It wasn't simulcast world-wide and this includes only CRs' numbers, something you have to remember when interpreting these statistics. If pirate streams/downloads were taken into account Goblin Slayer might still come atop in those regions...

The fact is, Crunchyroll doesn't stream Goblin Slayer in many countries. For example, in France, the series is streamed by another website, hence Slime being the most watched shows on CR.

More episodes = more sales to VOD websites, and more physical disc (animes a still mmostly sold by volume in japan).

It's still better than Wolf's Rain with it's 4 consecutive recap during the main serie, followed by 4 extra OVA episodes to close the story >__<

It's more likely to be Aniplex USA's fault, especially with all of the recent Sony censorship. Crunchyroll shouldn't have a bearing on Hulu's videos.
