Love sexy babes and badass knights that murder goblins by the hundred? Man, am I about to make your day…
As we speak, the popular Japanese light novel, Goblin Slayer, is being made into a new anime series.
This dark fantasy story follows the exploits of the titular hero named – wait for it – Goblin Slayer. And he hates goblins. He’s joined by Priestess, the show’s heroine and healer, and a cast of other adventurers, including High Elf Archer, Dwarf Shaman, Lizard Priest, Cow Girl, Guild Girl, and Witch.
Those character names don’t leave much to the imagination. Except Cow Girl, which leaves A LOT to the imagination.
Enough gabbing, here’s the teaser trailer:
Since the teaser doesn’t give you much in the ways of set up, I’ll help you out.
The characters are members of the Guild, an organization of adventurers who take jobs that are pretty typical of fantasy genre – rescue the princess, kill the dragon, save the kingdom, etc. You get the idea.
But Goblin Slayer doesn’t care about any of that. He only takes ONE kind of job. And I think you can guess what job he prefers. Smashing green skins.
The better question is – why does he hate goblins so damn much?
