Everything we know about Goblin Slayer Season 2

Goblin Slayer is a dark fantasy anime adaptation that is based on the light novel series of the same name, written by Kumo Kagyu and illustrated by Kannatsuki. It was also adapted into a manga and further into the renowned anime series which gained prominence after the streaming of its first season. Goblin Slayer Season 2 is already streaming on Crunchyroll and the first two episodes have received a lot of popular appraisal from fans across the world.

Goblin Slayer Season 2 – a look into its relation with the light novels

Goblin Slayer Season 1 covers the first two volumes of the light novel series and an additional chapter from volume 4 of the same. Furthermore, Goblin Slayer Crown adopted the fifth volume of the series and skipped two volumes in between.

That being said, Goblin Slayer Season 2 will likely move on to the sixth volume as the stories would overlap in the third volume, and the fourth one is primarily comprised of short fun stories that make up for good OVAs but not canon episodes for a series.

Goblin Slayer volumes 6 to 10 will follow the journey of the Goblin Slayer’s newly formed party as they make an alliance and join forces with a young wizard boy. This primarily features the invasion of a goblin nest infested in an old mausoleum.

Moreover, it will also follow the adventures of the troops as they take up the task of escorting the Sword Maiden to the capital, during which they will be dealing with goblins in the absence of the titular character.
