Goblin Slayer is not just another action fantasy but a gore nightmare that requires some serious guts. While the anime was softer due to censorship, the manga went all out on the brutality and graphic details.
The credit for all the trauma caused to fans goes to Kosuke Kurose, whose sensational manga art resulted in the franchise getting some die-hard fans. Some even became an admirer of Kurose, and this article is a treat for them.
Goblin Slayer’s mangaka Kosuke Kurose launched a new manga series Holoearth Chronicles Side:E Yamato Kasо̄ Kaiitan (Holoearth Chronicles Side:E Yamato Phantasia).
It is announced as part of the virtual YouTuber agency hololive’s ‘hololive Alternative’ project.

Square Enix’s Big Gangan magazine revealed this information on its official Twitter account. The manga will be serialized on the Manga Up! Website, and will also receive English and Indonesian translations on the Holonometria world archive website.
The story is based on hololive’s female VTubers, or the girls of hololive, in an alternate fantasy world setting. Chapter 0 of the manga was released in June 2021, and a proper serialization started on Saturday.
The first chapter explains the fantasy world the story is set in and the main characters, who are two cat-like creatures known as ‘kami.’ These kami protect the people of the village they live in and help around with the use of their special powers that haven’t been revealed yet.
We all know how Goblin Slayer is, and I am excited about how Holoearth Chronicles will be.
Considering how its first chapter had more happiness than the entire Goblin Slayer series, I am really looking forward to how it turns out.
