Goblin Slayer Vol. 1

Damian Trypp here.

Okay first thing I wanted to say is this one stared at me for two trips to the book store and everyone knows what that means. I was obligated to buy it and check it out. It was among many and it took me a bit to actually get to it but here it is.

Summary

A young priestess has formed her first adventuring party, but almost immediately they find themselves in distress. It’s the Goblin Slayer who comes to their rescue–a man who’s dedicated his life to the extermination of all goblins, by any means necessary. And when rumors of his feats begin to circulate, there’s no telling who might come calling next…

Review

Rating: 4.5 stars

Okay so this one was full of action and so far seems to have an okay direction based on the story. One thing I will definitely make note of with this volume is that if you are someone who is triggered by sexual assault and similar situations, this might not be a good read for you. There is some graphic content in the manga and it is definitely rated Mature for a reason. I’m hoping to see some development of the characters involved and hope to see a little bit of lore of the world that we’re in.
