The fall 2018 anime adaptation of Kumo Kagyu’s property Goblin Slayer is just a couple of weeks away from wrapping up its home video run but there’s more to come. The series site revealed this weekend that an OVA is being produced for it that will get released in theaters in limited form as Goblin Slayer -Goblin’s Crown-. No dates or details were revealed beyond the expected return of the main staff and cast for it. Check out the promo for it below and the key visual to the right.

The series is directed by Takaharu Ozaki based on the series composition by Hideyuki Kurata. Takashi Nagayoshi is handling the character designs while White Fox is working the animation production.

The Japanese cast includes Yuichiro Umehara as Goblin Slayer, Yui Ogura as Priestess, Nao Tōyama as High Elf Archer, Yuka Iguchi as Cow Girl, Maaya Uchida as Guild Girl, Yūichi Nakamura as Dwarf Shaman, Tomokazu Sugita as Lizard Priest, Yōko Hikasa as Witch, and Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Spearman.

It’s the Goblin Slayer who comes to their rescue–a man who’s dedicated his life to the extermination of all goblins, by any means necessary. And when rumors of his feats begin to circulate, there’s no telling who might come calling next…
