No one said life as an adventurer would be easy.
A young priestess has decided that her time has come. Joining the adventurer’s guild was to be the beginning of an exciting journey. Upon receiving her rank as a porcelain adventurer, she is approached to join a party. These 3 are looking for one more to help deal with a local goblin problem. Taking out goblins was sold to her as an easy activity. They’re nothing by flies, right? Unfortunately, she would soon learn the true horrors of dealing with goblins. They may not be the strongest or brightest, but they are cunning. Taking out a group of novice adventurers was a walk in the park for these goblins. One by one they fell till only the priestess remained. All hope of ever making it out alive appeared lost, then he appeared. A man known for his extraordinary dedication for exterminating the green cretins. Goblin Slayer has come to the rescue, and there will be no mercy.
Goblin Slayer’s impeccable timing has saved our young priestess. The horrors she experienced inside that cave would turn many away from ever adventuring again. Fortunately for us, she’ll be taking this experience and moving forward. She has joined Goblin Slayer’s party, although this time she won’t make the same mistake. She’ll be prepared for the next quest. Moreover, I must say this was quite the first episode impression. The buzz about this show has reached far and wide as this point. Regardless, it probably should be noted that future episodes won’t be as shocking as this one. We’re in for a lot more, so be sure to stay tuned. Anyhow, it’s time to deal with the goblin threat. Enjoy the goblin slayer!

Nice review here!! I’m surprised that you’re reviewing Goblin Slayer despite being busy. (^_^)/ From the anime Tensei Shitara Slime datta ken, the main character came across a village of goblins too, and he’s still helping them. However, in Goblin Slayer, goblins are depicted as an unfavourable creature like pest. One existence of a little goblin might not be much of a harm like a fly or a mosquito. However, once they started multiplying, they can cause much harm than we can ever imagine. XD The question asked by Priestess really makes me think a lot on even if there are kind goblins, is it still necessary to kill all of them? If the answer is yes, why is Rimuru Tempest still helping the goblins? What are your opinions on it?
How goblins are depicted in Goblin Slayer and Tensei Shitara Slime datta ken are very different. Goblins in the Goblin Slayer universe live in a time of wide spread chaos. This is a world where goblins are seen as a minor threat, and the real heroes are out there dealing with demon lords. Goblin Slayer is a unique character in that he only hunts goblins. They’re a pest normally dealt with by beginner adventures, though to Goblin Slayer he has taken the slaying of goblins to be a life long journey. They took his happiness away, so he’ll take all their lives away. As for there being a good goblin out there, well maybe if their world came under order, then goblins could live out a decent living. These goblins are set in their ways nearly from birth. Until then goblins will continue to live out a chaotic life style.
Goblins from Tensei Shitara Slime datta ken have lived in a long time of peace. They have their own land and the ability to thrive. Living within Jura Forest also has them separated from the non-monster nations for the most part. Unless a goblin wonders out far from home they’re won’t be any trouble. Goblins are feared as monster within this universe, but not quite to the extent of those in Goblin Slayer. Additionally, Rimuru will be working to change how the world views the monsters of the forest. Let’s just say that dinky little village will one day be the center of trade. The noble beasts of Jura Forest will soon be a place of awe and wonder.
Thanks for the explanation and reminding me that both stories had different depiction of goblins. Peaceful times affects how the goblins behaves. Maybe there are also different types of goblins too. However in reality, everything that is considered as pest such as locust, roach and mosquitoes should be exterminated as soon as possible to prevent any serious consequences. XD And hence, I think that the goblin slayer is doing the things that should be done where many of the people there consider it as some kind of dirty work.
thank you very much for this anime 😀 😀
No goblin shall go unpunished here. Expect more goblin slaying over the coming weeks!
