Goblin Slayer is graphic and that’s alright, right?

*UPDATE*

CrunchyRoll recently added a viewer discretion advisory to the beginning of Goblin Slayer. As previously discussed in the post below, this is a solution that informs viewers of potentially disturbing content, but allows them to decide for themselves whether or not to continue. They could specify that the advisory is for violent and sexual content if they wanted to take it a step further, but that isn’t really necessary.

Original Post

Just about every season, there’s at least one show that stirs up a bit of controversy for some reason or another. This time around, White Fox Studio’s Goblin Slayer is shaping up to be that point of contention. One episode in, the series follows Onna, a young priestess intent on becoming an adventurer. The RPG-esque premise and appearance is common enough, but the show’s graphic portrayal of sex and violence is causing a bit of an uproar within the anime-viewing community.

In this post, we’ll take a closer look at the controversy. This post contains images and subject matter that some readers may find disturbing and/or Not Safe For Work. Also, Spoiler Alert.

Megalo Box (Spring 2018)

Megalo Box

Megalo Box is a 50th anniversary reimagining of the Ashita no Joe manga series written by Asao Takamori. As an ultimately commemorative piece, the show is a nostalgia trip hearkening back to the style and presentation of late 1990’s anime. For some, this will be a big draw; others may find it too simple, and simply outdated.

Anime Podcast S2 E6: A Story That Explains Why Darling in the FranXX was a Narrative Mess

Pop Team Epic again somehow makes its way onto the show as we discuss the new Poputepipikku card game. Then, it’s the usual Week In Review with Attack on Titan, Overlord III, and SteinsGate;0.

Lastly, in a segment inspired by some recent discussion on the blog, Derek outlines a narrative about the production of Darling in the FranXX that may very well be more interesting (and believable) than the story of DarliFra itself.

The Story of the Ore To Shore: What Happens When a Regular Nerd Tries to be an Athlete

Every summer, there’s a mountain bike event that begins in the rolling hills near the birthplace of iron ore mining in Michigan, and ends along the pristine shoreline of Lake Superior. The event is known as the Ore to Shore. The true race is the 48-mile long “Hard Rock” (77 km for the international readers).

I was not part of that race…. Still, I had a title to uphold. This is a story about one otaku’s effort to repeat a 1st-place age group finish in one of the shorter races.
