The anime opened in theaters in Japan on February 1. The anime’s Blu-ray Disc and DVD will ship in Japan on July 29.
Crunchyroll describes the film:
“Please find any information on the Noble Fencer that disappeared after leaving to slay some goblins.”
Goblin Slayer and his party head up to the snowy mountains in the north after receiving that request from the Sword Maiden. A small village gets attacked, they encounter a mysterious chapel, and something about how these goblins are acting bothers the Goblin slayer.
“I’m going to take back everything that I’ve lost!”
In order to save the captured Noble Fencer, the Goblin Slayer and his party head to an ancient fortress covered in snow to face off with a powerful foe and a horde of goblins!
Sumire Uesaka joined the anime’s cast as the Noble Fencer.
The television anime series premiered in Japan in October 2018, and Crunchyroll streamed the series with subtitles as it aired. Funimation also streamed the series with an English dub. The 12th and final episode of the series had ended with a message stating, “Goblin Slayer will return.”
Yen Press has licensed both Kumo Kagyu‘s Goblin Slayer! novels and Kōsuke Kurose‘s manga adaptation.
