Three Episode Report: GOBLIN SLAYER

- Advertisement -

Goblin Slayer, the new dark fantasy series from White Fox the studio who created Akame ga Kill has been getting a lot of reputation on the internet lately. Is really worthy a commotion? Welcome to Three Episode Report. This report will judge an anime on its first three episodes to show if it gets a PASS (meaning it passed and more episodes need to be watched) or a FAIL (meaning you probably should not watch it any further).

Summary

Priestess is a new adventurer who just took her first mission to eradicate some Goblins with a group of novice adventures. When things take a horrible turn, Priestess finds herself having to be rescued by the mysterious Goblin Slayer, an adventure who has climbed all the way up to silver rank by only slaying goblins.

Goblin Slayer

Positive

Right from the first episode this series sets up exactly what can be expected. Scenes of intense and brutal violence are shown which leave the viewer shocked in awe. Goblin Slayer (the character) is a narrow minded individual who has one mission in life: Find and Kill Goblins. He makes sure to carry out this mission with no remorse and no second guessing with his methods. Despite being a character who is wants to protect others from goblins, he goes to extremes when it comes to making sure the scourge of goblins is eradicated.

The music also leaves a lot of impact. The opening by Mili is helps set up the audience for when the series showcases its adrenaline filled action scenes. The closing by Soraru leaves the audience with a feeling of melodrama to reflect on all the intensity which they just witnessed.

Goblin Slayer

Negative

This series features a very disturbing rape scene in the first episode. The scene is used to showcase the malicious and despicable nature of the goblins, it is not an easy scene to witness. Though it doesn’t glorify the act of rape (as the perpetrators are hunted down and murdered for their crime) it will not be a comfortable experience for many viewers. This will result in many being unable to continue watching the series.

Also, this is another series like Maoyu Mao Yusha where the characters are named after the classes they represent. Priestess, High Elf Archer, and Lizard Shaman are some of the creative names for characters in the cast. Anyone who has ever played a game of dungeons and dragons will be able to create better names for the cast members. It’s a lame element of the show to say the least.

Goblin Slayer

Grade

Goblin Slayer gets both a PASS and a FAIL. It passes for those who enjoy an intense series where you can never get comfortable because of the extreme themes which are present in every episode. It fails for those who find the content to be a bit too much to handle and you can’t deal with the violence and rape which are presented. If you find you can’t, don’t feel bad about it. There are a hundreds of anime titles and if this wasn’t isn’t for you spend your time looking elsewhere for something you do enjoy.

Goblin Slayer is Streaming on Crunchyroll.
