    Lowdown:

    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...

    Holy crap this aint light fare! I thought this would be like grimgar maybe.
    wow almost rape?!? And jeesh they axe off the first group right away sans the priestess.

    Even thought its a little rougher then i usually like i think ill stick with it. The goblin slayer kinda has a master chief heir about him.

    I'm just enjoying the memes, and people crying about the show.

    Feels more like Doomguy.

    EDIT: Or maybe something between the 2.

    Well, actually the guy from the 2016 Doom and the Doom Eternal is now called Doom Slayer not Doomguy.

    Doom Slayer = Goblin Slayer confirmed?

    Thanks matemar.

    The second episode gave some good background for everyone. Both the slayer and the healer got some depth as well as the new girl.

    I think this has promise. It seems to be moving beyond shock value.

    Good potential for action and self discovery here, maybe some kind of redemption story too, or not. Interesting how the story so far plays out like one of those "in the game" shows, except that nobody here has been summoned from another world, this is just a fantasy world existing as it always has. The only thing that really bugs me about this is that goblins are more adaptive than humans. The same stuff has been going on for decades or even longer, and yet young adventurers are allowed to venture towards certain death while the higher ranked adventurers scoff at their challenge. You would think there would be a money making venture in a self help book on slaying goblins, or at least some kind of mentoring. Right now it's more like an episode of the Darwin Awards.

    Well, they do describe Goblins as creatures with childlike intellect. Children are more open minded and more likely to learn new things and adapt to their surroundings. While humans are usually close minded and conservative.

    It seems like they are fodder for rookies. Those that don't beat goblins either die or give up on being adventurers. The ones that beat them move on to bigger and better things. More prestige and money. What the humans should have done was form an army to combat them. Then they could rotate duties to keep the soldiers content.

    I do like the new party. There is enough comedy mixed with seriousness to keep it going.

    I do like how there are now some experienced characters that also realize the greater threat that the goblins signify. Looks like there should be some good action now that we got past the Restaurant to Another World bit.

    So if GS can overcome his traumatic past we might have a love triangle brewing here? Or maybe a harem? Yeah, I thought maybe the armor might be shed, at least briefly. Unless there’s some kind of Deadpool thing going on that is.
