I read manga and books. I usually read Fantasy, Sci-fi, and Horror. I also read other books or manga that are not within those genres.

Goblin Slayer, Vol. 1 - Kumo Kagyu

I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought.


Unlike other light novels, the story is dark. It doesn't shy away from describing gore and blood during battle scenes. Also, there are some references to rape in some of the passages. If reading about those things makes you uncomfortable, I recommend skipping this book series.


I found the cast in this book to be fascinating and memorable despite not having proper names (Goblin Slayer's name is Goblin Slayer). My favorite characters so far were Priestess and Goblin Slayer. I wished there was more worldbuilding in this book. I hope the future volumes have that.
