Which girl will win the Goblin Slayer bowl?
Something just bothers me about cowgirl as a love interest. People are coming into his life she gets self conscious of her role in it when she's had so much time to do something? She does nothing and finds happiness living with him on the farm despite his continued decline. They've been sitting on top of his PTSD for years, now we find out he even flipped out on a kid, and it still continued. I don't even like Elf that much as a love interest, but at least she's not a part in enabling the horrid cycle he's be living since he was a kid.
These are good men.
I think the end-game is Goblin Slayer applying the tactics he uses on big game and it being really, really effective because of how unorthodox it is.
At least, I hope that's the end-game.
GS is crazy, but then again; all adventures have to be a little crazy. You don't sign up for that kind of work if you're a well-adjusted person.
The well-adjusted people who signed up for that kind of work started as porcelains and were immediately killed/raped/enslaved by Goblins when they couldn't cut it.
Elf is full of meat in the right places, but I somehow expected priest girl to have bigger boobs.
Elf is the best for pregnancy, with hips like that she wont have a problem in giving birth to ten kids or more.
>not recognizing the true lord of dwarf holds
Baka famdesu gonna get stabbed for that
Yeah, that would be stupid After all, after the captured girls get gobbled, they would eat them, yet they keep them.
It should be rape dungeon..but yet what happen to the girls they freed? They got a baby gobb in their towns months later?
There might be population center with female gobs deep into some woods or something and all the lairs we see getting cleaned are just disgruntled males wanting some pussy.
Otherwise, they kidnap females and make them pump out gobbos. No if or buts, it's the only logical way.
Freed girls probably get the old-style hook-in-the-cooch if they are pregnant.
Thinking back on it, they don't eat the corpses of the ones they kill. Instead they keep them around to fuck; so maybe human just isn't something they eat.
Or maybe >>152304620 is closer to the truth and there exists a hive somewhere full of the female variants.
Otherwise, Rape dungeons would have to be absurdly popular instead of being an occasional thing that the really-big nests get the luxury of owning.
Or drunk-GS is completely right and they come from the moon and are magically born when someone fails at something
But wouldn't adventurers find them or know about them? Even if they don't destroy those nest, surely GS would go there as it would be the most efficient way to wipe out gobs.
And there were children Gobs in the first dungeon. I'll go with the rape dungeon theory
Maybe they are that well hidden.
Rape dungeon seem the most likely though since you do raise a good point.
Could be a god is doing some shenanigan too, can never know with these pesky pantheons.
Children gobs may not be the result of rape dungeon and may instead be them just taking in little gobs as they find them. They apparently scavenge when not in a pack.
I imagine if there was a huge nest, it would have to be in demon territory. It's doubtful any adventurers going there would care about gobbos.
Yeah, but gobs don't seem like the most nice of creatures, after all they protected those kids. I don't think they would take them if they can't produce something for the tribe.
It could be the demon territory...but people would see large migrations of gobbs from there.
Maybe the Rape Dungeon theory it's correct, but they need certains conditions, like gobb a woman certain time (live or death) then a gobb comes from her (maybe like a Xenomorph or something). And if the process is interrupted, then nothing happens.
We don't know that, is the thing. We've never seen one get made.
GS states that they use them to tide overlustful desires, not breed. Most of the prisoners they capture get killed.
If it was like a xeno, then they couldn't produce more than one per woman.
Theoretically, if it is the rape dungeon theory: then they must have a really, really short gestation time. Like a month compared to a human's 9 month span.
You are right. I'm sure GS said that they breed pretty quickly, and if the dungeons are not burned quickly, they become a problem fast. So they do procreate in the dungeons, and with short gestation time.
I think rape dungeon theory with pregnancy of a month or less it's possible. But hey, maybe they can have several methods, who knows.
The art, for whatever reason, is hilariously bad. Which is not uncommon among LNs, I guess.
Does someone have the picture of her on the bed where it looks like she has an extra joint in her thigh?
Goblin slayer has changed after the summer vacation.
Say, there is a translator who had done two side stories that where not including in the official english version of Volume 1 for some reason; the 1st posted is a short story of the priestess while the 2nd one is about the 4 girls talking about Goblin Slayer.
>not tapping this every night
I admire his autistic dedictation to the Goblin genocide, but I literally see no reason to not rest his body and soul when is not killing goblins.
>he kills all Goblins in the world
>only one rare female Goblin is left
>he realize after killing her his life won't have a meaning anymore
>he decides to rape and impregnate the female Goblin for the rest of her life to revenge all the rapes by Goblins and to produce new Goblins he can slay right after birth
>his autism and his libido merge together and he changes his name into "Goblin Raper"
Since it stopped being edgy and went full on generic fantasy stuff, it's going to be a future yet-to-be named goblin princess/queen, god is evil, and goblins are just yet another victim.
Priestess will win. She will ease his pain, make him forget his hatred for Goblins and turn him into her loving husbando.
Then she will get killed by goblins and things will go back to how they were at the beginning, except this time with ten times more merciless goblin slaughter edge.
There was an attempt at translating the LN, starting with V1. But YP actually overtook them. Because at the end of the day, in spite of the Slow Press meme, unless you are some weirdo like js06 or whoever is translating Rokujouma, without the opportunity for a ten volume head start, YP is actually quicker and more reliable than the majority of fan translators. Shame about their policy on honorifics though.
Vol.5 is about slaying goblins in the snowy mountains (straight after vol.3).
Once they get going, 3-4 months in between volumes usually, across a couple dozen series.
But from the time that they announce they have a license to the time that they release the first volume can take from six months to a year. Presumably physical logistical restrictions are involved somehow, because J-Novel Club which is digital-only starts releasing pre-pub chapters within a week or two of announcing they have a license.
>because J-Novel Club which is digital-only starts releasing pre-pub chapters within a week or two of announcing they have a license.
They also release one volume every two months which is crazy. Why doesn't Yen Press just release digitally first and then physically later?
JNC are just some kind of weird anomaly that does literally the opposite of everything Yen Press does.
Still, shamelessly shilling (for free), give your shekels to them instead of Yen Press if you can afford it. More LN translation companies need to be like this.
3-4 months is pretty sad though, for a LN. Looking at Crest of the Stars v1, its about 200 pages and the word count on each page is really really low...its nowhere near the word count of a typical western novel.
A full time translator can easily translate this in a month, tops, but I know that publishers space out releases on purpose because people tend to buy more stuff in stores if they make several visits, rather than one visit where they buy all the volumes in one shot.
>All those weapons for potential gruesome goblin slaughter
From what I've read, the translation can easily be done in a month or less, but then you run into additional bottlenecks like proofing, editing, typesetting (remember they have over twenty series to work on plus manga), getting approval from Japan, sending to printing company, waiting for printing company (because printing company has shitloads of books from other people to print too so you're going in a queue), checking samples from printing company to make sure there's no misprints (which YP has been failing a bit at recently), shipping from printers to distributor warehouses (which are all over the US and abroad, and normally they're supposed to be there several weeks in advance), and shipping from distributors to retailers. Even a two month release schedule is nearly unsustainable.
>huge sections of the limbs aren't armored (even a chainmail tunic would be better)
>groin unarmored, not even with leather padding
>short sword is far too thick for thrusting
>throwing daggers are far too large for throwing
>scabbard exposes the tip of the blade, this is dumb as fuck, just ask /k/
>that retarded three headed dagger
Why are they putting on slutty outfits? Where are the doujins?
Last chapter translation was confusing. Was it saying that THIS ogre did all those famous things, or that all ogres can do them? Was this ogre just this strong, or are all ogres this strong and can regenerate, etc?
One problem with throwing knives is that if you don't match the rotation to the distance, they won't hit with the tip, utterly raping their already unimpressive damage potential.
So to make one that's a lot more user friendly, you put points and edges basically everywhere, drastically reducing the risk of it not hitting with something that can do damage.
It is, which is why J-Novel Club announced Grimgar at the end of October and released the first volume in mid December. But Japanese publishers don't generally like digital-only releases (which is why it's such an apparent miracle that JNC was able to persuade Overlap and Hobby Japan to go along with it) and many fans will want a physical tangible product if they can help it.
the cover and at least three bw pics.
Next time GS and co. goes into town, I want to see a SOL esque chapter where they each do their own thing. Lizardman looks for cheese, priestess and elf go to onsen to wash off gob blood and semen, GS releases his pentup sexual frustration at his fav brothel.
>can kill and rape whatever you want
Being a gob is so underrated.
Nigga, go find a different series' thread to post in then. Goblin Slayer actually does have legitimate rape in it, and lots of it. We can expect more rape of something in this series. You're hoping to make this series something it ain't; go fuck off.
>They say there's no face under Goblin Slayer's helmet.
>There is only another helmet
fuck it here is the epub for the vol 1 of GS enjoy before it gets taken down
you need to make an account tho
Not perfect but it can fill its purpose for...research material
>Digital releases are paced alongside physical releases to avoid cannibalizing physical sales.
It's important to provide support to the physical distribution chain. They have to transact a minimum number to make it worth their while. If the digital sales or piracy cannibalize enough sales to drop the sales below a certain threshold, then it's time to abandon that title. At that point, the preorders from the sellers to the publisher decreases and finally drops below the point where the publisher even bothers with digital releases. Not enough sales? Translation suddenly stops and the fans blame Yen Press for not continuing to lose money on the title instead of blaming both piracy and the lack of buyer interest.
Why the hell she looks like a boy when turned brown?
>implying gobs won't win VS bowl
Hulkload claims to never delete yet its FAQ says files expire and become unavailable (until you pay money to re-activate them again on your account). So files do have a limited lifespan if not attached to a premium account.
>Village was raided
>GS accepts the job
>It happens it was actually a group of bandits
>Prietess: But they are human!
>GS: NO, they ARE goblins
Awww, come on now. What do you think gives him the biggest thrill? Shagging the human priestess or jacking off over the FRESH corpse of a goblin? Does he get a bigger thrill releasing into the elf or shooting bukkake style over the FRESH goblin corpse?
>just ask /k/
>asking retards who use popular fiction media as reference over reality and history.
It is an variation of an african throwing knife. You can tell by how the blades look phallic.
>goblins magically becoming retarded whenever he's around
>stupid plans yet doesn't suffer from them
I always wondered if you're the same person that post the same thing over and over again in every GS thread.
Fuck I can already guessed what reply you will get, and what other reply would follows.
You're just one anon samefagging, right?
Well guess what? Your post aren't original and there's a lot of fucktons anon said the same things as you.
And instead the "salt in this THERADS" what you'll get is you getting butthurt instead. Just wait, someone will post "that" soon.
well sorry for my unoriginality then
>Goblin Slayer LN vol1 is only ~1.5$ on google play in my country
Living in shithole sometimes has benefits.
For the first time in my life I was ready to buy something anime related, but then I saw a post with download link in this thread. Oh well.
Healers are not sluts. That is the thinking of lonely rogues and permavirgin tanks wanting to corrupt something pure and immaculate.
Priestess is misunderstood.
every healer is a slut, there are no exceptions
you can put the manliest man alive to play a healer in a MMORPG and he'll be reduced to a semen-loving cockslave in a week AT MOST
Priestess is now forever wet for GS and all what he had to do is say one word.
The King sent a personal request to investigate a newly discovered site dubbed the Demon's Tower (similar sites have been popping up after Demon King's defeat). Guts reckons he needs at least 3 people (a mage, a healer and himself), but he'd prefer to have 6 people. GG thinks it's hard to find the right people due to the small numbers of high rank adventures, and they need those who are both strong and not messed up in the head, because the client is the King. Lancer happily volunteers when Guts mentions someone who can cast spells and fight. Guts thinks they still need a scout, Lancer says that there aren't many skilled ones around. Guts wants a scout whose alignment is at least neutral, since scout and thief types tend to be very selfish. GG concludes that they need someone who can fulfil the roles of a scout and vanguard, the person must be strong and good; a person who doesn't mix professional and personal affairs and who is neutral. GG says there is one person like that. Guts and Lancer are both surprised. GG walks over to GS, who matter-of-factly asks "...goblins?"
He joined because he needed money fast.
The King. He and Sword Maiden are old friends. She joked about him running away from flesh walkers and he mentioned about her getting attacked by slime in the past.
I think the overarching problem in the story is that the gobs are small and divided, so they aren't an immediate problem.
Giant demon spires are big and obvious, so that's the thing the king thinks about. As hypocritical as it may be for him to do that while desperately needing GS' help. (GS being someone that the King may not even know exists or is even a singular person)
He didn't specify in the chapter (the volume is all short stories so they jump from one place to another), and the three of them were enough for the job.
He sends Hero to goblin lairs. Also Sword Maiden chose to neglect goblin problems prior to Vol.2.
What has sword maiden and haruhi to do with the guys that bullied priestess? why you put them in your post?
>You will never be able to read moon runes and tease other anons bits and pieces of a neat story
Is life meant to be suffered in this way?
Some kid who wants to be an adventurer but unable to tell his big sister. He follows some guys to the forest despite being warned not to due to goblins. He gets attacked by three goblins but GS shows up. GS kills two and the kid shouts there's one more. GS throws a dagger and slays the last goblin who was behind the kid. GS picks up the wooden sword the kid's dropped and thanks him before leaving.
He just doesn't seem that into her, and shouldn't it say something that the new girls where able to enact positive changes in him when she's had years to do it but GS still walked around like a PTSD drone?
Sorry it's revealed near the end of the last chapter. Priestess points out GS has been really busy recently and he says that it's because he needs money. He goes home after parting with Priestess. CG says he's late today. She asks him about the corn he's got (GG passed it onto him on behalf of a village that he helped) and says dinner will be ready soon. GS says there's something he wants to give her before dinner and puts a bag of gold coins on the table. CG says that he's already paid his monthly rent. GS tells her it's not for the rent, but her birthday. CG then remembers that it's her 19th birthday tomorrow. GS says he doesn't know what to get her as gift, so he figured a bag of gold coins would be the best. CG gives him a "can't be helped" kind of wry smile and says if he didn't know what to get, then they should just go and choose something together. After lecturing him, she goes to cooking, but before that she says she's forgotten something important. She gives him a bright smile and says "welcome back!", to which GS replies "Yeah, I'm home."
so GS is the guy who wanders around the first section of the game grinding on fluff enemies until he's lv99
Imagine if that first goomba raped and murdered your family as a child.
Then you grow up replaying the first level of Super Mario over over killing every goomba until you can do it with your eyes closed.
Those are probably punch daggers. You use them in grapple or if something is on top of you, so you'd want them thicker to do more damage
The three-pronged thing is probably the throwing knife. It's really really hard to get a dagger perfectly straight when you throw it, that's what the multiple heads are for. They exist in real life for that purpose, anyway
Keked a little. It's the little things that make the dumb Chinese foreign word transliteration system
That one is from chapter 5, where CG and Priestess try on the bikini armours. GG and Elf's scene is from chapter 8 (the one with the naked Elf illustration).
CG's uncle tells her to visit the town. Uncle asks her about her friends, CG thinks GS is her only friend. CG argues she's got too much work to do, but uncle more or less says to her not to waste her youth on just working from sunrise to sundown. CG goes to town without her wagon or GS like she always does. She wanders around and thinks that the people she's known as a kid are not around anymore. She looks at the people passing by and thinks she has no connection to anywhere else besides the farm. Priestess shows up. CG asks her why she's dressed casually, Priestess says she's off-duty and figures she'd go out once in a while. CG then asks her what she does when she's not out adventuring, Priestess says she prays and then do things like reading the holy scriptures, monster manuals and training. CG comments that she's really diligent and then tells Priestess that they should hang out together given their chance meeting.
The two girls talk a bit about the upcoming harvest festival (vol.3). CG asks Priestess what GS is like usually and if he's caused her any trouble. Priestess says he's always helping her and if anything, it might be her who's troubling him. Priestess says he's taught her many things about adventuring. CG asks for an example, and Priestess mentions chain mail. CG then decides to go and browse the weapon/amour shop.
At the shop, they talk a bit about the bikini amour ("only Hero get away with wearing a risky bikini armour like this"). Priestess goes to look at weapons and a curious CG follows. Priestess stops when she sees a helmet like the one GS wears. She tries it on but falls because of its weight. CG catches her and puts on the helmet as well, finding it really cramped inside. After that, CG decides to try the bikini amour and drags Priestess into it.
That's it actually. The scene then changes to Elf, GG and Inspector playing tabletop game at the pub. CG and Priestess join them. After that CG and Priestess go back home. Priestess says it was interesting, CG agrees. This is the world that GS sees and lives in, CG thinks. She then jokes about girls going to the weapon shop and playing at the pub. Priestess laughs. CG feels like Priestess is like a younger sister to her and thinks GS might feel the same way. They promise to hang out again. CG now knows that her connection isn't only to GS or the farm, all the connections that he's formed are also hers.
Huh, I wonder if they do plan an anime version for this they will include these short stories chronologically like this part before the harvest festival in vol 3 as well as the trio events before meeting with Goblin Slayer for the first time.
Reminder that knife ears such as elves, goblins and orcs need to be purge.
This is it. Goblin Slayer loves only goblins. Loves them with his sword.
The anatomy looks weird, especially Elf. Look at those man shoulders. Sorry but can't fap to this.
Well there aren't a lot of chapters with her yet, but she has some good reactions.
but ゴブリン doesn't have a meaning besides Goblin since they represent only sounds not concepts
the concepts contained in 哥布林 on the other hand roughly equates to Brother Cloth Forest, or possibly Brother Boolean if you are being loose
