This episode tells us what current politics of the world within the series and establishes the goal of what they’re going to make our protagonist work toward. Honestly, there isn’t much I could say about this episode really. It talks a little more about Goblin Slayer’s past and shows us the dynamic between each character in this 5 person party. Still, it isn’t a bad episode, it’s just an episode that’s leading up to the next one. All in all, it was okay.
