Goblin Slayer Season 2 Source Material Information

The source material used for the Goblin Slayer animation is a light novel, despite the cartoon’s adaptation being much better in sales and popularity.

We need to check in this section if the story is still going on or if it is about to end. Current series always have a better chance of receiving a sequel. That’s why, for example, I think there’s a possibility for The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 even if the anime didn’t sell well.

After that, we have to figure out how many light novels have been used, producing the movie and the first season of Goblin Slayer. If the anime caught up with the source material, Goblin Slayer Season 2 might have the same issue as No Game No Life Season 2.

How Many Volumes of Goblin Slayer Are There?

There are currently 13 Goblin Slayer light novel volumes released in Japan. Goblin Slayer also has a manga series that publishes books for teenagers. There is also a prequel manga available for this series.

Is Goblin Slayer Light Novel Still Ongoing?

How Much Light Novels Does the Anime of Goblin Slayer Cover?

The Goblin Slayer anime which aired in 2018 adapted volumes 1-2 and parts of book 4. Goblin’s Crown’s new movie for Goblin Slayer used the whole of the 5 volume light novel, so there are about nine volumes left to use for a sequel.

Goblin Slayer Plot

Goblin Slayer revolves around a magical world where adventurers make a living by completing tasks and contracts. The jobs they do are often dangerous and don’t always go well. Among these adventurers, a young priestess takes on a contract that goes horribly south. Her group is attacked by goblins and everyone except her is killed. Lucky for her, an experienced adventurer dedicated to killing goblins arrives and rescues her. The man calls himself the goblin slayer. However, the next season is expected to continue along the same lines as the manga and reveal plenty of surprises along the way. We will also be shown the highly anticipated characters like the Dark Elf and the Goblin King. We can continue to follow the adventures of the Goblin Slayer as he continues to get rid of the goblins.
