Goblin Slayer Season 2 Plotline

After the Goblin Lord’s death and goblins are killed, everything seems safer in season 2. But is it? Or are some more difficult tasks waiting for Goblin Slayer? The farm might be secured but not forever. Goblin Slayer will be involved in some more dangerous missions. It is a well-known fact that the Priestess has been one of the most helpful partners in duty. In season 2, Priestess will maintain supporting Goblin Slayer and their cooperation. Cow Girl’s interest to be an adventurer will go on in season 2. However, it is not clear how useful she will be or manage to be a proper adventurer.

The shock wave that Goblin Slayer’s removing helm seems to still have an impact in season 2. Goblin Slayer’s reputation appears to be heard widely. Goblin Slayer seems to get more love and acceptance thanks to this confrontation and success in destroying goblins. The idea which was believed before that killing goblin is not something worthy to risk will change in season 2. Goblin Slayer’s passion for killing goblins seems to keep busy his personal life for a while. Therefore, it is a common expectation for season 2 that Goblin Slayer might think about his future just like Cow Girl advised him.
