Honestly Goblin Slayer's biggest problem is that it doesn't really spend anytime building anything up. Also what's super weird is that a similar thing happens in a later episode except it's handled so much better which makes episode 1 all the more pointless.
Weird question about Goblin Rape(that's a thing I just typed), how was it in the original LN?
Just curious to hear how bad it was, or if the people adapting the manga and anime are taking some creative liberties for the sake of fan service.
In the LN I don't think we even get much details about the party and how they mishandled the cave exploration and their mistakes like the Manga and Anime did.
I give him benifet of the doubt because his writing becomes alot better after the first 2 volumes and he gets comfortable. He also develops the shit out of characters after the first 2 volumes because I think that when he settled one his main cast and the supporting characters for the most part.
It's mostly two types of posts in the for/against the show arguments :
Type A bashes Goblin Slayer to demonstrates their moral superiority
Type B defends the show, but tip toes around problems like does the rape has to be fetishized to prove a point.
I think Goblin Slayer is like the Saw movie franchise. Saw has an iconic trap that can rip a person's face apart, do the audience need to see that before they are convinced that Jigsaw MIGHT be a deranged psycho killer? No, because Saw belongs to a genre called torture-porn, face ripping is the money shot.
Like Goblin Slayer, Saw is a very successful movie franchise with many many sequels. Torture-porn isn't my things, but everytime I pass by people lining up to see Saw, I don't feel the urge to scream "Degenerates" in their faces either.
Does everyone realized by now that Goblin Slayer is a JRPG satire that leans on controversial contents to distinguish itself from the other 20,000 Isekai anime and manga?
Critiquing goblin jizz and rape fetishization is my favorite way to express my moral superiority.
Nobody hates a show to feel morally superior. That's not how feelings work.
*Watches first two episodes*
That's what all the fuss is about?
Mostly just strikes me as an edgelord-ish deconstruction:
"What would actually happen if a bunch of newbie adventurers tried to take on monsters?"
"They'd screw it up due to inexperience and get stabbed to death in the dark of course."
"Oh, and all the women would get raped lololol"
Deconstruction of RPG tropes isn't the worst premise I've ever heard of, although I suspect it's been done better elsewhere. Basically lost me when Mr Stoic McBadass turns up to show the noobs how to git gud. Definitely lost me with the most generic backstory of all time.
Not exactly blowing my mind in terms of visual design or animation quality either.
I Spit on Your Grave, and at the same time criticize those elements. I'd advise you not to worry about moralizing or namecalling. It's the internet. Be like me and save your stubborn indignation for a less heated topic like politics!
With rape goblins.
It reminds me of like, Death Wish with Charles Bronson but swap the gang members for goblins and add in the typical isekai meta gaming in an rpg world angle.
it's even alike in that bronson and goblin slayer are both old fuddy duddies who know how to do it better than the younguns, which are coded as adventurers in newer fantasy anime as opposed to GS himself's old school dnd vibe and it's about the perils of naivete against a evil threat the law is ignoring and taking things into your own hands
Rewatch the scene and note how the goblins don’t act naturally and stand off to the side while stripping her and pinning her down so that you can see her entire body. Look at how they pose her so that you get to see her boobs and her butt and her entire arched back as they slowly pan up to show her panties getting torn off.
The compare it to how the male adventurer’s death is framed, how the goblins act like goblins and don’t pose him for the camera and think about why it is.
I’d also just want to point out that one can objectively look at some elements and deduce that it is designed with the intent to titillate while not being turned on by it themselves. Beyond that, accusing people of being perverted for making that kind of criticism is juvenile and a weak counter argument. It’s the equivalent of someone pointing out something racially insensitive in a show and you saying that person must be racist for seeing that in it.
I guess I'm desensitized from all the horrible acts I've witnessed in Berserk.
So buddy of mine recommended in watching this because "It'd like D&D" or whatever. Then I saw this thread. So I checked it out. -sigh- Anime. Why do you do this shit?
there's a new type of Goblin never previously existed that, interestingly enough, actually worship a 'good' God; it's basically a Hero type Goblin. Goblins are also used by the Demon Lord to wreck havoc although, hilariously, the Demon Lord later actually forbid his army to employ Goblins because he doesn't want Goblin Slayer coming in and ruining his shit, as he tends to do as a collateral thing when he hunt Goblins, lol
Though I don't fault you either if you are not interested to do so after viewing just 2 episodes, it is what it is I guess.
I watched the first episode yesterday and, sans the rape bit, I thought it was... okay. Kind of wish the Goblin Slayer was the main character, I hated all of those other kids.
But it's... what, some goblin harem anime? Is that right? I'm not down with that, I want more brutal goblin killing.
And less rape. Preferably none.
Watched the first 6 episodes today. It was pretty good. First two episodes were the darkest but it after that it seemed to be pretty good. The elf seems like a direct rip off of the elf from Dragon's Crown. The priestess is the worst character. Typical anime shit tier character.
Read the first chapter of the manga. Saw the female Mage and monk get raped and murdered.
Yeah not for me.
it's a japanese light novel series, it's a given there are some harem elements
I think I rather stick with my Warhammer orcs and goblins. Growing out of fungus.
Goblin Slayer ignores girls feelings more than Kamijou Touma.
With the harem aspect, it's not that bad, and a lot of it is because Orcbolg doesn't give a shit. He's not playing the bashful/obtuse harem main character, or someone who doesn't know which girl to pick. He's thinking about killing goblins.
So it's only short scenes, Goblin Slayer is unresponsive, and then it moves on.
Pretty sure Priestess is a yes if spoilers are true.
Also you forgot Guild Girl.
