Goblin Slayer made a splash with its premiere containing a massive turn of events. If you haven't seen it yet, you'd probably glance at the cover and wonder what the big deal is about; make no mistake, this anime is messed up. Set in a world where mythical creatures roam and adventurers are needed to defeat them, it seems like your average fantasy anime. That is, until a young priestess joins an inexperienced party to fight goblins.
When adventurers become overwhelmed, a man in armor appears to defeat the ugly creatures: the Goblin Slayer. He's dedicated his life to wiping out these creatures no matter the means. If you've already caught up on the show and are craving more anime series like it, we have a few great recommendations for shows that feature the same kind of messed up twists and turns, as well as the fantasy element you love about this show!
