The anime Goblin Slayer was an instant hit and controversial for its brutal and graphic scenes.
Before we had the anime we had the manga series and before that the light novels. The success of the series means we’ve had spin-offs such as the prequel series Goblin Slayer Side Story: Year One and Goblin Slayer Gaiden 2: Tsubanari no Daikatana.
It’s the latter has had its manga serialisation cancelled. Square Enix’s Gangan Online magazine shared the news with disappointed fans at the end of the month.
No clear reason was given for the manga ending; Square Enix cited “Various circumstances”.
Goblin Slayer Gaiden 2: Tsubanari no Daikatana (Daikatana of Singing Death) launched only in September and followed a band of adventurers trying to explore their way through the Dungeon of the Dead.
Square Enix hasn’t given up on the title, though, and have said a “new development” will be announced for the manga adaptation of the light novel later.
The Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown theatrical anime episode is due to hit cinemas in Japan next year. The manga adaption of the fourth light novel, Goblin Slayer: Brand New Day, finished its run this month.
