Re-Dive: Goblin Slayer: The Dirty Jobs

I wasn’t intending to come back to this series unless it was reviewing the Light Novels. However I’ve been watching anime with a friend and I knew that Goblin Slayer would be something he enjoyed. So we sat down and re-watched the series once more and I figured I got a bit more to say. So after the cut, let’s take a re-dive into the series: Goblin Slayer!

Don’t @ Me: Seven of my Anime Opinions: Before Breakfast Edition

It’s Monday, which means it’s time to get up, not go to school, and get on with our lives. Welcome to Don’t @ Me, the place that unlike, stupid criticisms of Sword Art Online, I think for ten seconds before giving you my thoughts on anime, manga and the like.

Anime makes toast look so fucking sexy

Goblin Slayer Volume 4: 22 Short Stories about Goblins

Our look at the light volumes of Goblin Slayer continues! It’s been quite a while since we last dived into this series.

Having just finished our look at How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord, I decided it that this would be next! Let’s not waste anytime, and after the cut dive into the fourth volume of Goblin Slayer.

OK, not 22 stories, but I wanted the Simpsons reference.

Goblin Slayer Volumes 1 and 2: Get it done

This winter, thanks to a great sale from Rightstuf, I’ve purchased several light novel including How not to Summon a Demon Lord, Overlord, If it’s for my Daughter I’d Defeat even a Demon Lord, and of course Goblin Slayer. Before this, the only experience I had with light novels was horrible (and I mean HORRIBLE) translations of things like High School DxD. So now with official translations out to read and thanks to a great sale, I decided to bite the bullet and get into Light Novels proper. You can expect more reviews on all of these as the year goes on and beyond. So join me after the cut as I dive into the first two volume of Goblin Slayer.

Priestess is still a cutie.

Goblin Slayer’s Goblin Slayer: The Hero’s Hero.

Goblin Slayer has been a surprise hit among anime fans, harking back to the days of Berserk style shows where the gore, violence and settings don’t have an Isekai in sight. It was no doubt that a show like Goblin Slayer would be popular, but the level of enjoyment people got from this show was rather surprising, as was the “controversy”

But we aren’t here to talk about that, instead I want to talk about the titular lead of the show and what makes him so unique in the era of anime leads. Join me after the cut as I take a Character Dive into the main character of Goblin Slayer: The Goblin Slayer

Love it hate it, Goblin Slayer helped proved that anime can dish out some good old sword and sorcery when needed. So this week’s tune of the week(ish) is the opening them of Goblin Slayer: Rightfully by Mili.
