A new trailer and a new key visual highlight the dark and deadly fantasy world of Goblin Slayer, an upcoming TV anime based on the light novel series written by Kumo Kagyu and illustrated by Noboru Kannatsuki about a young adventurer who has made it his life's work to eradicate goblins whereever they appear.
The original Goblin Slayer novels are published in Japan by SB Creative under their GA Bunko imprint, and an English language version is also available from Yen Press, who describe the story of Goblin Slayer as follows:
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...
The Goblin Slayer TV anime is directed by Takaharu Ozaki and features animation production by White Fox. Goblin Slayer will broadcast in Japan beginning in October of 2018.
