In a fantasy universe that at first glance seems like a complete stereotype, adventurers of all destinations and with varied abilities seek to join the Guild, an organization dedicated to administering and awarding missions of various degrees of difficulty in exchange for a reward, with tasks ranging from being an escort to annihilating all kinds of vermin. It all begins when a young Priestess fresh out of the convent decides to join a group of novices for a seemingly simple mission: eliminate goblins, repulsive beings but with the size and strength of a human child. After all, dealing with cheap goblins even if you’re a beginner can’t be that hard, right? In a world where high-stakes missions and outrageous monsters are taken lightly, massacres of the unprepared are the order of the day. In just a few minutes, the team is savagely slaughtered and the Priestess is saved at the last moment by Goblin Slayer, an experienced silver rank adventurer who is obsessed with annihilating that race, and thus begins an uneasy alliance between the two. From here, the story follows the Priestess and other adventurers who join the Goblin Slayer in their mission to eradicate all goblins on the planet.
