Goblin Slayer Season 2 will adapt the next arc of the story, and it’s officially confirmed. So a new season is coming soon, so fans can look forward to the next season of this anime.
With one season, Goblin Slayer is already one of the more popular Dark fantasy anime series, along with a movie, Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown, which came out in 2020.
When is Goblin Slayer Season 2 coming out? What will the plot of the new season of Goblin Slayer be? These are questions we will answer about the next season of Goblin Slayer in this post.
You will learn when Goblin Slayer Season 2 will be released, what light novel volumes it will use, and everything else you need to know about the second season.
When Is Season 2 Of Goblin Slayer Coming Out?
We must look at two factors to determine the Goblin Slayer season 2 release date and whether or not a Goblin Slayer season 3 will follow.
The first one is source material, and the second is how much profit the first season and the movie made.
We will now examine both to see when Goblin Slayer season 2 is coming out and if there will be a season 3 or not.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 light novel & Manga
For the Goblin Slayer anime, the source material is a light novel.
How many volumes of Goblin Slayer are there? As of January 2022, there are 15 volumes of Goblin Slayer. The Goblin Slayer manga has 12 books, and there are a few side stories as well.
Is the Goblin Slayer light novel finished? The Goblin Slayer light novel is ongoing, and the end is not in sight. The manga is also still ongoing, and this series has at least a few more years before it will end.
Kumo Kagyu published the latest volume in Japan on September 14, 2021.
Volume 16 of Goblin Slayer release date? There is no release date for volume 16, but it should be out in February 2022.
Where to start reading Goblin Slayer after the end of season one? The Goblin Slayer light novel after the first season is Volume 3.
So, if you want to continue the story from where the first season ended, take a look at Goblin Slayer Light Novel Volume 3 in English.
The first season of the Goblin Slayer anime adapted volumes 1 and 2. The movie used volume 5, so season 2 should be volumes 3 and 4 and maybe 6.
That means there will be enough content left for the third season of Goblin Slayer after the second season.
I highly recommend checking out the Goblin Slayer manga. Many fans prefer manga over light novels or anime, and it is the only way to continue the story in 2022.
Goblin Slayer Profitability And Sales Figures
How well did the Goblin Slayer Blu-ray sell? The Blu-Ray sold roughly 3,700 copies per disk for the first season. That is decent for 2018. The movie sold 5,000 copies.
Anything above 3,000 is good since people don’t buy Blu-rays as much as they used to.
How well does the Goblin Slayer light novel sell? Goblin Slayer Volume 14 sold around 19,000 copies, and the latest volume, Volume 15 sold 16,000 copies. For a series with anime, it isn’t selling that well.
The Goblin Slayer manga sells better, with each volume selling around 100,000 copies.
How many copies does Goblin Slayer have in print? As of 2021/07/10, the Goblin Slayer series had 7,000,000 copies in print.
It’s one of the top 50 most popular light novel series of all time.
How much merchandise is there for Goblin Slayer? There are more than ten figurines, which is a decent number. There are also only 100 pieces of merchandise made for this series.
The figurines number is okay, but the merchandise is low. It should be at least 200 after an anime and a movie.
This series made enough money to get a second season, but it’s nowhere near enough to guarantee a third season as well.
I highly recommend checking out Goblin Slayer merch if you’re a fan of the Goblin Slayer series. There is some fantastic stuff made for this franchise.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Release Date
As of January 2022, Goblin Slayer Season 2 doesn’t have a release date, even if it is confirmed. However, the release date for the second season of Goblin Slayer is likely July 2022.
A new season of Goblin Slayer was just a matter of time, so the Goblin Slayer anime is not over.
There is enough source material for a third season in the future, but the profit wasn’t so great, so I’m not sure about it.
If the second season sells as well as the first, we should get a release date for Goblin Slayer Season 3 in the next few years.
On average, after a new season is confirmed, it takes around 6 to 12 months for the new season to be released. So you would expect it to come out in January or April 2022.
The problem is the studio that will be animating this series.
White Fox is doing Utawarerumono in summer 2022. So White Fox won’t be doing the second season of Goblin Slayer. They lost a lot of staff, so they likely can’t do more than one series per year now.
Because Goblin Slayer is getting a new studio, the new studio needs to create everything from scratch. That is why the second season is taking so long.
I’m curious as to which studio will pick up this series. Because White Fox didn’t do the best job with the animation, the second season may be better adapted than the first.
In the next few months, we should find out more about the release date of the second season of Goblin Slayer.
You can also find out whether other anime series are receiving new seasons:
- Re Zero Season 3
- That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Season 3
- Youjo Senki Season 2
- Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2
