    Doom But With Goblins
    (Disclaimer: I will be changing this review how I see fit as more episodes are released so my review might fluctuate within episodes on how I feel and leave it rated as). Currently I have found time to write a new review, I shall rewatch the whole season so I make sure I don't miss anything for my final review.

    I love how one episode is already out and someone already cried about it being too ...

    This is what anime needs.
    I'm very happy with this adaptation from Studio Whitefox. They went further with the source material than I thought they would. I hope the rest of the anime community follows suit with what Goblin Slayer is trying to bring back. I like Moe as much as the next guy but its becoming oversaturated in our medium. We need more variety and this dark and gritty series is a great start!

    Not for the weebs or faint of heart.
    This anime starts of as many fantasy adventure's do; light hearted with beautiful score. However things turn intense and graphic very quickly. If you are weak of stomach or faint of heart this anime is not for you. If you are itching for something with more edge than a warriors sword, que no further.
    Viewer discretion advised.
    Features intense violence
    Rape
    Nudity

    Combat Finally Recognized as Not Just Violent, but Brutal
    I am writing this review immediately after watching the first episode, so I hope my observations hold true. But I am very impressed with Goblin Slayer so far! For too long shows in the action/adventure and fantasy genres have treated combat as some glorified dance. Even shows that portrayed real violence often downplayed the brutality that combat can engender. Don't understand the ...

    Goblin slayer here to rip and tear
    WARNING! DON'T LET THE CUTE ANIME GIRL FOOL YOU! This show is not for those with fragile spirits! It is violent a gruesome! You have been warned!

    If the anime follows the Manga/light novel faithfully (and based on the first episode it probably will) Goblin Slayer is going to take you on a brutal, violent, and frequently tragic journey.

    The world is loosely based off of Dungeons ...

    Goblins aren't cute didn't you know?
    A lot of people are reviewing this writing "rah rah rah rape shouldn't be in an anime rah rah rah" or that the fact that rape was shown makes it a bad anime...first of all in any Lore about humanoid species and especially Chaotic evil types, rape is a common theme, this anime is supposed to tap into the absolute DARKNESS that is adventuring, I mean Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash was brutal (skipped on ...

    RIP AND TEAR! RIP AND TEAR!
    Best Dark Fantasy in years. Be prepared to go on a wild ride of blood and gore. If anyone liked the original Berserk and Claymore, then this show is for you. Also, there seems to be CGI in the episodes, but it's not jarring at all like berserk 2016, and there's NO CLANG CLANG going on either. PRAISE THE SUN!

    Brutal Dark and Amazing
    First off I'll say this is NOT for everyone. This is not even for MOST people. If you are easily disturbed do not watch this show. If debasement, rape, child murder, etc. is too much for you, do NOT watch this show.

    This show is as realistic as a fantasy anime can be, I suppose. In the real world, women in war get raped, disgusting as it is, this show has that. In the real world, people make ...

    Too real for some, but good if you can handle it
    There has been a bit of controversy about this show. And I can see why; it gives a more realistic depiction of violence than most other anime series I have seen.

    The main character hates goblins. I mean truly hates them; he is genocidal. In one particular scene he clubs to death a group of goblin children. And the narrative seems to support him in that. There doesn't seem to be any subversion ...

    Very impressed with the adaptation. Let the ride begin!
    As a manga and light novel reader and fan, I was was ecstatic to see this series blow up like it did. With already four manga adaptions and an anime in its first two years of existence. However I was also very worried that the anime would shy away from what makes this series stand apart from its many peers. To my surprise this was NOT the case. Studio WhiteFox does it again with this adaptation. ...
