IDK after seeing Rin http://www.crunchyroll.com/rin-daughters-of-mnemosyne not sure censorship is really a concern. Depends on whether or not this will be shown primetime Japan TV. IF its more of a late night or pay per view show it could be pretty raw.

I've been reading the light novels hoping this would become an anime. This has likely become my most highly anticipated series. Think I'll go back and read the novels before it comes out.

I heard so much stuff about this manga that I am starting to worry for the fans.

Remember when Terra Formars aired at 1 AM and was heavily censored. Pepperidge Farm remembers. Unless of course you are paying for AT-X.

It terms of cut-content, people will complain either way so....¯\_(ツ)_/¯

TNH didnt care for Terraformars. Seemed like a space alien version of DragonBall. Every episode was about fights that were predictable. Not my personal cup of tea. But I guess I understand why some ppl liked it. There is a demographic for everything... even tentacles

Its actually pretty similar to Killing Bites of this season, in terms of people turning into animal hybrids + fighting. People complained so hard about the censorship in S1 that the producers turned the show into a little kids battle anime in S2. While also blessing us with quality animation.

Eh. The only thing the manga has going for it are the shocking visuals. Take that away and the anime probably wont be anything worth watching.

Holy shit that PV looks amazing. I really want to see this, but I am afraid of being turned off by the grim stuff and rape. I already think Berserk is garbage enough.

Looking at the poster it gives hope that they will keep this dark and gritty. As for the rape stuff it's there to keep the nail in that these are one of the most cruelest monsters out there that people keep underestimating because they are 'simply' goblins merely pests that newbies can go deal with. The added grit and cruelty of these creatures add weight and purpose to the Goblin Slayer as he is completely obsessed with destroying their kind to the point of being unhealthy.

It'll be a disservice to the source material if content is censored and it would lessen the importance of why Goblin Slayer is Goblin Slayer.

I wonder if they'll give the characters proper names or continue with how they are called from the novel/manga.

So it looks like they may be making heavy use of CG environments for action sequences. Not sure how to feel about that, but the PV didn't look like complete arse.

As for the censorship: there's quite a bit that can be done with discretion shots and convenient censoring to imply a serious squick factor. They don't need tits flopping around everywhere to drive the point home that women are getting violated. The worst that could happen is clumsy censorship to be removed in the blu rays.

The last line of "proper" names drives in the point many people gesture at. That this series relies on shock and gore far more often than it does adequate story telling.

To explain why this is a bad thing, some consider overreliance on such to be the emotionally heavy but narrative empty equivalent of a 30 second video of a dog being kicked. There's no reasoning why to care, we just do because it evokes a reflexive reaction.

Anyone can do this to the very least, but the narrative is bankrupted if everyone is merely reduced to roles and victims.

There is a proper way to use rape, but to use it so cheaply is neither dark or gritty; it is juvenile. Whether or not it applies here is up to the reader, and I only read to chapter 16 of the manga adaptation. (Or possible 24, I may be getting this mixed up with Akame ga Zero. Yes, I am reading for fanservice.)

Funny how this (as far as I could stomach reading the manga) is only applied to female characters, where they're clothes are done away with showing off service shots. There's a ton of other ways to display "cruelty" but this particular story didn't even stop at rape's disgusting level, instead going even further in having it be goblins doing it (not sure if that technically fits into bestiality or not). Its edgelord idea of "mature" meets fk'd up fanservice.

The story is about a person with intense childhood trauma so much so that his social skills have been massively hampered, how is very actions make him seem more robotic due to turning into an otaku with the sole purpose of killing X thing and how to learn to better kill X thing that cause said trauma. People are turned away from him due to his obsession mostly dismissing him as another weirdo.

And while people are so foolish about goblins and their threat, is because those that have dealt with goblins have either encounter only a very few or were unfortunate enough to encounter a full on nest and get completely overrun.

How the goblins even function is basically they steal plunder and kill. That is how they survive and grow, how is a goblin nest formed? When a goblin kidnaps women for breeding. How do they get stronger? They learn from experience at an alarming rate, each time they survive an encounter they learn and grow rapidly from it.

As for the politics behind why people are so dismissive to goblins, is because there are freaking demons and demon lords and those without names that are a far greater threat (aka world ending threat) constantly attacking, that the kingdoms cannot send armies at a simple goblin nest when adventurers (more known as ruffians and such) are left to deal with it. There's a chapter dedicated to the newer characters attempting to recruit goblin slayer because of it.

Goblin's do not reward valor or a lot of money, so to adventurers (who on the most part are after fame glory and money) ignore these quests and go for trolls or bandits and such.

This is a DnD campaign where there are two DM's one that is about order while the other is about chaos, read the light novel and a lot more is explained. You have an entity calle Goblin Slayer that by normal means should have had is roll of the dice dictate his fate much like many other adventurers, yet he is always thinking outside of the box, the normal 'rules' that ties down the action of a normal adventurer.
