Goblin Slayer’s first episode was aired on 7th October 2018. The show didn’t hit sky highs at first but continued to grow its fan base with each episode. Though faced with some controversy in the few beginning episodes about the depiction of human females and their goblin counterparts, the anime succeeded in proving those controversies wrong as they used the depiction only for setting the plot for the anime.
Shortly after this with few more subsequent episodes, the anime established the genre of dark fantasy.
The story follows the adventures of a man in armor whose holy grail of life is to kill and eradicate all the goblins from the face of the world he lives in. Therefore naturally, the question of to what extent he and his comrades can fulfill their goals is the main curiosity point of the story. And given where the story ended in the first season, the only way to get an answer for the same is a subsequent season.
