When Will Goblin Slayer Season 2 Come Out?
There is a Goblin Slayer movie (Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown) coming up in Feb 2020. What comes next is probably the Goblin Slayer Season 2 but for now, the White Fox Studio is only focusing on the movie. One thing we know for sure is that another season will happen, it was written as clear as day in the ending of the first season.
“Goblin Slayer Will Return” Goblin Slayer is an anime adaption of the light novel series “Goblin Slayer” written by Kamu Kagyu. It was also adapted to a Manga written by Kosuke Kurose. The anime took the fame of Goblin Slayer to a whole new level.
There are also some spin-off series: Goblin Slayer side story: Year one and Goblin Slayer Gaiden 2: Tsubanari no Daikatana. The serialization of the second spin-off series (Tsubanari no Daikatana) was canceled and fans were very disappointed as it was going very well. It was declared that the serialization canceled because of various circumstances, no clear reason was given.
In addition to that, Goblin Slayer has also been dubbed.
The main character, however, always keep an armor on which is the reason why not only us but his own comrades can’t see his face.
During the final episode of the first season, our young priestess asks him to show his face as her reward for helping out. That’s when he shows his face for the first time, The problem with both the anime and the manga is that they are constantly teasing the fans with only showing some of his faces.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Release Date
The fans want to see his full face which may or may not happen in the Goblin Slayer’s season 2, or perhaps the Goblin’s crown movie.
We might never actually see his full face, just like how it was with Kakashi Sensei from Naruto. But Kakashi sensei did get a face reveal in a filler episode. The same could happen with Goblin Slayer.
The producers might just be trying to create some hype among fans on what Goblin Slayer’s face looks like and wait until the hype is real enough to reveal his face to the fans.
Although, there are many fan arts of his face all over the internet. Some people agree on some but others disagree. The actual face reveal is what fans are really waiting for.
