Anime & Manga Thread v.6.0 Goblin Slayer Rated PG, If You Just Ignore The Rapey Scenes


#161

That is amazing in more ways than one lol

my favorite part about goblin slayer is watching people freak out and complain. those people shouldn’t even worry soon they will get the generic adventure they crave.


#164

It’s not the absence of things they like. It’s the existence of things they don’t like.


#165

yea but if the goblins weren’t horrible serial rapist/killers they would just be every other fantasy creature.


#166

The issue isn’t really just the rape. Berserk had that ages ago and caused less of a stink. The problem people have is the context I think. Like, yeah, the Eclipse is shocking, but it earned that shit. Goblin Slayer is just going with the shock factor right away which just cheapens the overall tone. I mean, what I like about Slayer is moreso the professionalism with which the main character hunts. It’s a bit like the Witcher concept honestly. But having moe-ish character designs and then fucking them over with little in the way of tonal hints isn’t good writing, it’s just shock value. Like, you can make impactful dark fantasy without being cheap, as we all know from Berserk

The rap battle in episode 2 sold me on Zombieland Saga.

tfw you check what’s hot this season and people watch Goblin Slayer and SAO. Anime is dead.

Now I only need Grashros as an anime and my life is complete.

Wit Studio, you clever bunch of sonuvabitches managed to stick in some OG Ringu-type shit in that AoT episode and I fucking love you for it.
