So, if you enjoyed the Goblin Slaying be rested assured that you will see another season of this RPG anime and hopefully more.
What is Goblin Slayer about? Plot:
The show follows around a man named Goblin Slayer trying to finish all the Goblins. Season one ended with Goblin Slayer and Lizard Priestess defending his and Cow Lady’s town. We only got to see his chin at the end of the episode which revealed he has two marks near his chin. The journey of the show has just started.
With the mysterious end, we sure are keen to know the identity of the Goblin Slayer. So possibly the second season will pay more attention to his powers and capacities. It may probably reveal some more details about the slayer.
Since this show has been adapted from a light novel, there are more volumes available and that can assure us a few more parts in the series.

Even the movie received a positive response. (check: The Promised Neverland Renewed For Season 2: Yakusoku no Neverland Revolves Around Emma’s Escape Plan.)
It is based around a woman who vanished after approving a goblin goal. The gang encounters a goblin cult which is led by a solid goblin leader. Remember the Goblin lord that tried to destroy the town in the first season? He is nothing in comparison to this cult leader. How the gang fights this lord is worth watching.

Controversies Surrounding The Goblin Slayer Anime
The first controversy started with its first episode when a young Priestess joined an excessively eager bunch of adventurers when they went of their first quest to rescue hostages from a Goblin clutch. The group failed to gather potions and supplies in stock. They believed that Goblins like to eat cannon fodder, so there is nothing to worry about.
But, the group of adventurers gets mistaken very badly and they fail to stock up the necessities. The main controversy was with the graphic scenes of assault. A large proportion of the fans and viewers complaint that a lot of scenes were hard to even see. Besides them, there were a lot of violent sexual scenes. However, they were reduced/toned down after controversy forced them to do so.
