The first volume of Kumo Kagyu’s Goblin Slayer light novels caused enough of a stir upon release that an anime project was pretty much inevitable. At last weekend’s Wonder Festival, it was announced that the series’ time to splatter blood, gore and various other gooey substances over TV screens is now. Here’s a teaser to whet your blade.
After scoring its reputation for unconventional fantasy with Re:ZERO, studio WHITE FOX will be handling production. Specific staff details are yet to be announced, but it is known that the cast of the previous Goblin Slayer drama CD will reprise their roles en masse.
So, that cast list stands as follows:
Yuichiro Umehara (Darling in the FranXX‘s Goro) as Goblin Slayer
Yui Ogura (Twin Star Exorcists‘ Miku) as Priestess
Nao Toyama (Nisekoi‘s Chitoge) as High Elf Archer
Yuka Iguchi (A Certain Magical Index‘s Index) as Cow Girl
Maaya Uchida (Gatchaman Crowds‘ Hajime) as Guild Girl
Yuichi Nakamura (Fairy Tail‘s Gray) as Dwarf Shaman
Tomokazu Sugita (Gintama‘s Gintoki) as Lizard Priest
Yoko Hikasa (K-ON!‘s Mio) as Witch
Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Food Wars!‘ Soma) as Spearman
As you can see, the cast screams status before we even have all the details. Are you guys looking forward to seeing this one? We’re curious enough to follow the updates as they arise, so watch this cave.
