Along with the launch of Kosuke Kurose’s Goblin Slayer! manga in Monthly Big Gangan magazine, Yen Press have set off with their simulpub of the series, adapted from Kumo Kagyu’s light novels, as promised earlier in the month. You can pick up the start of the journey to adventure through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, iBooks and Kobo, but this elves and orcs tale comes stamped with a warning. The violence seems to escalate rather quickly in this particular realm.
SB Creative published the first volume of the Goblin Slayer! dark fantasy novels on February 15th, and the second volume was released in Japan on Saturday. Writer Kagyu of The Idolm@ster Neue Green for Dearly Stars, alongside illustrator Kannatsuki, first published the series online. It follows a man with the goal of becoming an “adventurer”, with the strict stipulation that he’ll only kill goblins. After hearing rumours of the hero’s goblin-slaying deeds, an elf comes to him with a request.
