the biggest question in the series, Goblin Slayer Face Reveal. Does Goblin Slayer ever reveal his face in the anime or the manga? We are here to answer that question.

Since the finale ended on a cliffhanger, fans have been waiting for Goblin Slayer Season 2. And now the biggest question in the series, Goblin Slayer Face Reveal. Does Goblin Slayer ever reveal his face in the anime or the manga? We are here to answer that question.
Goblin Slayer (whose real name is never mentioned in the anime) has a very traumatic past. His entire village was murdered, raped and burned to the ground by Goblins. On that day he made a vow to kill all the Goblins in the world. And ever since, he’s been training to make himself stronger to take on Goblins.
He uses various methods to kill Goblins such as swords, magic, traps, etc. His armor is a way of defending himself against Goblin. And because he’s so paranoid about goblins, he never takes off his armor. And that’s why most of the show’s duration Goblin Slayer Face is always hidden.
Will we ever see Goblin Slayer Face?
The battle to protect the city from the Goblin Lord and his swarm of cronies was sufficiently climactic, but when the priestess requested the nominal person remove his headguard upon completion, it marked the first time the vast majority of various characters had seen the face of Goblin Slayer had seen . It was proclaimed that “this is the being of a champion” and all the young ladies were eager to see this shockingly attractive face.
The problem was that the anime just gave us side perspectives or scenes where his face is shown to some extent. A few fans are confident that Goblin Slayer Season 2 will vitalize Goblin Slayer Face in full structure, but that may not be the case.
About Goblin Slayer
Goblin Slayer started as a light novel series written by Kumo Kagyu in 2016. Two manga adaptations by Kosuke Kurose and Masahiro Ikeno also started in the same year and have been published in Gangan monthly magazine† Another Kento Eida prequel manga was published in Young Gangan Magazine†
Another spin-off prequel of Kagyu titled Goblin Slayer Side Story: Year Oneappeared in 2018. A second spin-off Goblin Slayer Side Story 2: Daikatana of Singing Death published in 2019 with further chapters to come.
The story of Goblin Slayer revolves around a group of adventurers who join the Guild and take various jobs to earn money and glory. A priestess gets into trouble with goblins on her first mission and is rescued by an adventurer Goblin Slayer, who only wants to kill goblins.
Possibility of a new season
The 2018 anime mainly includes Kagyu’s light novels. Looking at just Kagyu’s light novels, which have 13 parts and 3 parts of side stories, there’s plenty of content to refer to. Producers can make it more than two seasons. The first season included parts 1 and 2 and partly part 4.
Even after that, there is a manga with over 18 volumes including the spin-offs. So from the context of the content, it all looks good.
the film Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown premiered on February 2020 and included the fifth installment. The film can also be taken as an indication that the anime is still under consideration for a next season. One of the members of the production team did say in an interview that there will be a second season and will premiere in 2022. However, there is no official release date yet.
What can we expect in the new season?
The finale revealed part of Goblin Slayer Face, with two scars near his chin, as he defeated Goblin Lord and saved his hometown. In the end, it is revealed that he is just a pawn of something huge. But the gods seem to be interested in him because he refuses to let them control his fate.
The second season would definitely have more goblin slaying. With the preparations for the Harvest Festival underway, everyone seems to be carefree except Goblin Slayer, who senses a new threat coming. The second season could feature Dark Elf as the main antagonist wreaking havoc on the festival. It could cover more of part 4 and part 3.
In case the second season has more episodes, we can see that it covers 6 and 7 as well. Hopefully it will, because parts 6 and 7 go into more detail about the characters and it would give a nice progression to the anime series.
After a brief hiatus of over three years, the Goblin Slayer finally seems on the horizon. Relieved, for fans, The Goblin Slayer Season 2 has finally been confirmed in production. The announcement was made by studio white fox on January 31, 2021.
