Goblin Slayer II Has Been Interesting So Far

Key points for Goblin Slayer II mid-season review:

  • Goblin Slayer II shifts its emphasis from intense action to in-depth character development, providing significant insights into the emotions of characters like Goblin Slayer and Priestess.
  • The series surprises with moments of emotional vulnerability from Goblin Slayer, showcasing a side rarely seen. This adds depth to the characters, making their stories more engaging and relatable.
  • Despite a change in studios, the animation quality remains consistent with the first season. The return of Mili for the opening theme adds to the series’ familiar and immersive atmosphere.

Goblin Slayer II is one of my most anticipated sequels this season. And honestly, it has been surprising to say the very least. I was expecting to see some brutal action the series is known for immediately. But to my surprise, the action has been pretty tame so far.

And I don’t mean that in a bad way because the series right now focuses more on characters, which has led to some great moments. It is just very different from what I had initially had in mind and I don’t mind that at all.

So welcome back to another mid-season review, today we are talking about Goblin Slayer II, so let’s get started.

What do I think of Goblin Slayer II so far?

As I said, the character work in this season has been pretty impressive. Let’s start with Goblin Slayer himself. He really saw himself in that sorcerer kid, their backstories and motivations are so similar. So when it came to him, we saw Goblin Slayer express more emotions than ever before. Listening to the kid talk about his sister, reminded Goblin Slayer of his own past and that particular episode ended in him sitting alone in a corner, caring. Which hits hard because he never shows emotions like that. Such an incredible character moment for him.

The other person to get notable character development, of course, is the Priestess. We got to see her work independently for a few episodes, showing off just how much she had learned and grown over time. Given how much we have already seen of her, I am sure she will get more character development moving forward in this season. The Elf also seems to be someone who will get more development in upcoming episodes. Starting this episode, we got to see a glimpse of her family life, I am sure that will lead to some good moments for her.

I know that the anime is being made by a different studio this time around, but I don’t particularly mind the animations so far. The quality is about the same as the first season so nothing too different here. I think I have said it before but I am really glad that they brought back Mili for the opening theme of this season too. Her voice goes well with the mood/vibe of the series. The first ending theme was definitely better though.

Lastly, I hope that this season ends with a bang like the first season too.

That is all for now!

As I said, Goblin Slayer II has been very interesting so far. It is very different from what I had in mind and I don’t hate that at all. I do miss the intense action of the first season but I don’t mind this either. I think it is fair to give the anime an 8/10. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!!
