One of a handful of announcements from this weekend's GA Bunko Happyō Stage event at Wonder Festival concerns Kumo Kagyu's Goblin Slayer light novels. The dark fantasy series is officially getting a TV anime adaptation, and WHITE FOX (Re:ZERO, Steins;Gate, Grimoire of Zero) will be handling the production.
The Goblin Slayer drama CD cast will reprise their roles in the anime. These include:
Goblin Slayer - Yuichiro Umehara (Goro in DARLING in the FRANKXX)
Priestess - Yui Ogura (Miku in Twin Star Exorcists)
High Elf Archer - Nao Tōyama (Chitoge in Nisekoi)
Cow Girl - Yuka Iguchi (Index in A Certain Magical Index)
Guild Girl - Maaya Uchida (Hajime in Gatchaman Crowds)
Dwarf Shaman - Yūichi Nakamura (Gray in Fairy Tail)
Lizard Priest - Tomokazu Sugita (Gintoki in Gintama)
Witch - Yōko Hikasa (Mio in K-ON!)
Spearman - Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Sōma in Food Wars!)
Here's a quick teaser:
The original light novels and the manga adaptation are being released in English through Yen Press. Here's their synopsis:
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...
