A hybrid of MMO, Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic and Berserk.
16 August 2019 | by maxmagesSee all my reviews

Do you remember the kid who always did things very differently in school (not necessarily wrong but just different) just to stand out?

He apparently produced an anime but learned it. There are also character designs, weapons and clothing that remind me of The Witcher, Final Fantasy and Assassin's Creed. So there is something for everyone except children. Despite a visual style that is sometimes indistinguishable from a lighthearted shonen series such as "Magi, One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, and Fairy Tail."

The thorny issue of sexual assault remains one of the most difficult issues to address for each medium. But compared to the rest of the episode, it's just a drop in the bucket as well as compared to the entire series. (But these scenes were narrative important and 20 times worse in manga) And the first episode is just to establish "that there is no children's series". That just looks bright but it's dark.

And "Goblin Slayer" is certainly dark, but not as dark as anyone says but more serious. And I love it at first sight quite a steel break but it is suitably chosen realistic and plausible. But above all, well-balanced that's why it harmonizes as well as Honey Mustard sauce. Goblin Slayer is a funny, sloppy adventure about a plate-armored psycho that surpasses the rules of the RPG world he lives in, and the most inventive, efficient, and often entertaining way possible. plays and marries with the cheerful murder lust of games like Doom and Hitman.

But with all the praise I have to seriously criticize that the eponymous Goblin Slayer is not the main character and it is difficult to identify with him because he is literally faceless. It's clearly too heavily inspired by Dungeons and Dragons, the Goblin Slayer itself looks like a standard fantasy video game boss, his helmet like a rail cleaner, some attacks stolen from street fighters, CGI where it does not belong. Just like One Punch-Man, Goblin Slayer is a parody of his own genre, yet it tells a story of seriousness instead of clapping jokes. Unfortunately, they are not reinventing the wheel. Rarely bring something new to the table, they could only really go all out in the first episode and we did not shoot powder too early or episode 1 (only two episodes were really brutal). I think the biggest drawback is the Goblin Slayer itself is too monotonous. He lacks the certain something, this little peculiarity or a character Quirk that makes him a little more stand out or could make hypocritical. For example, that he is addicted to kill night or has an attitude like Dexter Morgan Goblin Slayer feels, on the whole, like a spin off series to an epic fantasy game, you just gave the popular sidekick its own mini-series. This is not bad when he just waits for more and gets nothing besides, I felt the creators just wanted to shock and fix us in the very first episode because the rest of the series is pretty standard and with that guess I'm not charging wrong.

and if the monologues were not meant as a parody, they would be unbearable.

PS.: None of the characters has a name. the audience only knows their titles or roles.
