Goblin Slayer Anime Gets New Episode 'Goblin's Crown'
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the anime based on Kumo Kagyu's Goblin Slayer light novel series announced on Saturday that the anime is getting a new episode that will screen in theaters. The episode is titled Goblin Slayer: Goblin's Crown, and it will feature returning staff and cast.
The television anime series premiered in Japan on October 6, and Crunchyroll streamed the series with subtitles as it aired. Funimation also streamed the series with an English dub. The 12th and final episode of the series ended with a message stating, "Goblin Slayer will return."
Yen Press has licensed both the novels and Kōsuke Kurose's manga adaptation, and it 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...
Takaharu Ozaki (Persona 5 the Animation -The Day Breakers-, Girls' Last Tour) directed the anime at WHITE FOX. Hideyuki Kurata (Read or Die, Made in Abyss, Kamichu!) was in charge of series composition and penned the scripts alongside Yousuke Kuroda (Jormungand, My Hero Academia). Takashi Nagayoshi (Girls' Last Tour animation director) designed the characters.
SB Creative published the first volume of Kagyu's Goblin Slayer! dark fantasy novel series in February 2016, and Kōsuke Kurose (The [email protected] Neue Green for Dearly Stars) launched an ongoing manga adaptation in Big Gangan in May 2016. The novels have inspired spinoff novels and manga series.
Yen Press is also releasing the Goblin Slayer Side Story: Year One and Goblin Slayer: Brand New Day spinoff manga.
