The second season of the popular anime show The Goblin Slayer is coming very soon and the audiences can’t wait for it to be released. The makers confirmed the nes and the official announcement was made on January 31, 2021 amidst the GA FEST 2021.
After a year of the Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown international release, the second season of this anime TV series is all set to hit your screens soon as it is finally said to be in production. The anticipated return of the show is happening and was confirmed by the makers but when exactly will the second season release?
Along with the second season of Re: Zero, Goblin Slayer Season 2 is amongst one of the most popular anime sequels that people have desperately been waiting for. A Japanese animation studio White Fox which is widely known for creating amazing isekai anime created these two anime adaptations as well.
Goblin Slayer did not receive criticism from the western audience and critics as such in comparison to how The Rising Of The Shield Hero anime was criticised earlier. However, the show was widely criticised and got negative reviews because of a few extremely controversial scenes that involved goblins and human women.
Such scenes were shown only during the course of the first few episodes which proved to be beneficial for the show as the criticism related to these scenes subsided soon enough. Goblin Slayer went on to become a dark fantasy and the predetermined genre of the show with a cynical tinge established. Post which the controversy around the show faded and the early criticism also happened to have no effect on the sales number of the show.
The first season of the Goblin Slayer was released on 20 February 2019 and 3,361 copies of Blu-Ray box sets were sold plus the DVD box sets sold 804 copies.
Considering these financial figures, 4,435 copies of Attack On Titan Season 3 were sold. My Hero Academia Season 3 had a worse performance and only 2,612 Blu-ray copies were sold.
A new season of both these anime shows are probably in the making. However, there are old shows like Overlord Season 3 that sold 7,222 copies and then audiences are waiting for the fourth season of Overlord.
Selling the shows on discs does not really seem to have an effect on the decision of whether or not more seasons of the particular show will be produced. Rather, the revenue that is generated through the sales of merchandise and from international streaming have turned out to be the determining factor and the international popularity and demand of the show plays a prominent role in production related decisions.
Thus Goblin Slayer’s immense popularity across the globe was quite significant when it aired on Crunchyroll back in the day.
“He does not let anyone roll the dice” was the subtitle in the movie Goblin Slayer but gratefully, the creators of the show already seem to have plans on making a new season and are apparently willing to ‘roll the dice’ considering that the movie ended with the note that the “Goblin Slayer will return”.
