Opinions and Reflections

Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown has a duration of about 85 minutes but the actual duration of the OAV is shorter as for about 15 minutes there is a brief summary of what happened in Goblin Slayer in the first season of the anime.

Here too, as in the series, the underlying plot is not particularly important but what matters most is the extermination of the goblins.

The animations of Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown seemed to me almost similar to those of the first season even if in some very short sequences they gave me the impression of a drop in quality but overall very pleasant to watch.
