Goblin Slayer Episode 1 Review: Brutal Reality and Always, Always Be Prepared

In Goblin Slayer episode 1, "The Fate of Particular Adventurers," Onna Shinkan joins the adventurers' guild because she's a priestess and wants to help other adventurers. She thinks she's lucky to meet a new team of adventurers within minutes of signing the admission forms, but she should have put more stock in the guild representative's worried look. She also should have trusted her instincts when they began screaming warnings at her. Will Onna get a chance to learn from experience? Or will this cruel world inflict its Darwinian wisdom on yet another party?

Goblin Slayer Episode 2 Review: A Home to Defend and a Solid Teacher

In Goblin Slayer episode 2, "Goblin Slayer," we find out that Goblin Slayer not only has a home, but he has a childhood friend named Ushikai Musume. He lives with her and her uncle in seeming peace. But we also find out all is not as blissful as it seems, from Goblin Slayer's grimly necessary morning routine to how poorly many of the other adventurers treat him. Despite that, he continues to teach Onna Shinkaand puts up with her frequent bouts of stubbornness. Then Onna witnesses a fresh porcelain team go out after a nest of goblins while Goblin Slayer selects a much larger, more strategic target. He says that she can follow the porcelain group if she wants, but he won't. Which mission will Onna choose? And even if she goes with Goblin Slayer, will she be any safer -- since he's taking on a goblin strong hold?

In Goblin Slayer episode 3, "Unexpected Visitors," Goblin Slayer and Onna Shinkan return from a successful mission to find an Elf, a Dwarf, and a Lizardman waiting for them. Well, not for them -- only for Goblin Slayer. Leading Onna to wonder just how seriously he takes her, Goblin Slayer excludes her and meets with Yousei Yunde, a 2,000 year old Elf archer who is paradoxically the least experienced of the three; Kouhito Doushi, a Dwarf shaman who mercilessly teases the Elf; and Tokage Souryo, a Lizardman shaman who seems like the most diplomatic of the three. They've come to ask Goblin Slayer for his help in a demon war that will likely determine the fate of the world. Will he be interested in fighting creatures other than goblins? Can he even fight on a team? And what will Onna have to say -- assuming he even asks her?
