Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This dark fantasy anime offers some intense action scenes that are great for fans of brutal action. Goblin Slayer offers solid strengths in its well-executed action scenes and impressive animation. But the series falls into a generic fantasy narrative, lacking distinct elements to set it apart. Moreover, the inclusion of graphic sexual content (including assault) may make some viewers uncomfortable, detracting from the overall viewing experience. While the animation quality stands out, the show's overall appeal may be limited for those seeking something more than cool fight scenes and brutal action.
