Without a doubt, one of the most hyped new upcoming anime titles for 2018 is Goblin Slayer. The violent alternate world series has been making waves as a light novel, and then as a manga, even before they announced the TV anime. And now, the staff have revealed a brand new PV for this upcoming anime.
The video confirms the anime’s October 2018 premiere, as well as introduces a few notable characters. Aside from the new PV, staff also unveiled a new key visual for the upcoming Fall 2018 series as well.
The series has been very infamous for all its violence and gore, so it won’t be for the weak of heart. Takaharu Ozaki (Girls’ Last Tour) is directing the anime, while WHITE FOX is providing the animation. Here’s how Yen Press describes the light novels’ story:
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…
So, who’s excited to see a this critically-acclaimed series finally getting its own anime? We surely are!
