New visual for anime based on Kumo Kagyu's novels also unveiled


Anime News Network's coverage of Anime Expo 2018 is sponsored by Yen Press.


The official website for the television anime adaptation of Kumo Kagyu's Goblin Slayer light novel series began streaming a new promotional video for the anime on Monday. The video reveals the anime's October premiere.

The site also revealed a new visual for the anime.

Kagyu attended Anime Expo as a guest. The event first showed the new promo video and visual on Sunday.

Takaharu Ozaki (Persona 5 the Animation -The Day Breakers-, Girls' Last Tour) is directing the anime at WHITE FOX. Hideyuki Kurata (Read or Die, Made in Abyss, Kamichu!) is in charge of series composition and is penning the scripts alongside Yousuke Kuroda (Jormungand, My Hero Academia). Takashi Nagayoshi (Girls' Last Tour animation director) is designing the characters. Mili is credited for the opening theme song "Region."

The anime will feature the same cast as an earlier drama CD adaptation:

  • Yuichiro Umehara as Goblin Slayer
  • Yui Ogura as Priestess
  • Nao Tōyama as High Elf Archer
  • Yuka Iguchi as Cow Girl
  • Maaya Uchida as Guild Girl
  • Yuichi Nakamura as Dwarf Shaman
  • Tomokazu Sugita as Lizard Priest
  • Yōko Hikasa as Witch
  • Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Spearman

SB Creative published the first volume of the Goblin Slayer dark fantasy novel series in February 2016, and the company published the seventh volume on March 14. Noboru Kannatsuki illustrates the novel series.

Kōsuke Kurose (The [email protected] Neue Green for Dearly Stars) launched the main manga adaptation in May 2016.

Yen Press has licensed both the novels and Kurose's manga adaptation. The company published the fourth novel in print on December 19, and released the manga's 25th chapter digitally on June 26.

Yen Press describes the series:

A young priestess has formed her first adventuring party, but almost immediately they find themselves in distress. It's the Goblin Slayer who comes to their rescue--a man who's dedicated his life to the extermination of all goblins, by any means necessary. And when rumors of his feats begin to circulate, there's no telling who might come calling next...

Yen Press is also publishing Kento Eida's Goblin Slayer Side Story: Year One manga in English. Yen Press launched the manga last September, on the same day the manga premiered in Japan. The company is also publishing the Goblin Slayer: Brand New Day spinoff manga simultaneously with Japan.
