Opinions and Reflections
I personally liked the graphics and animation sector of Goblin Slayer, I don’t shout at the miracle, but I found it very pleasant. Also for the sector of the soundtrack nothing to say, indeed some music I liked a lot.
As you can see, no character is called by name, but only as a race or as a class that represents them.
The plot of Goblin Slayer is mainly focused on the obsession of the protagonist of wanting to eliminate all the goblins present and puts the awakening of the Demon King in the background.
The beginning of the first episode was very violent but with the progress of the episode has stabilized a bit on something less, but continues to remain very beautiful and interesting to watch.
