While all twelve episodes of TV anime Goblin Slayer can be watched on the AnimeLab video-on-demand streaming service right now, its feature-length film has been made available neither on home video release nor through digital distribution channels in Australia and New Zealand. This has recently changed, with anime publisher Madman Entertainment confirming the availability of Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown to all AnimeLab subscribers. However, you need to get watching fast, as it will only be available for the next week when it becomes inaccessible indefinitely again.
Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown is a one-hour 25-minute film which first screened in Japan during February this year, and picks up from the end of the show’s first season. It features animation from studio WHITE FOX, with direction by Takaharu Ozaki, writing by Hideyuki Kurata and music by Kenichiro Suehiro.
The version of Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown being streamed at this point in time will only be its newer English dub, with the original voice cast including Brad Hawkins, Hayden Daviau, Brittany Lauda, Mallorie Rodak and more reprising their original roles. It is uncertain if or when the Japanese audio version of the film will be offered, if at all, before its home video release.
AnimeLab is an online anime streaming service managed by Madman Entertainment. It’s accessible only to those residing in Australia and New Zealand and offers a basic service free with video quality, dub and availability timeframe limitations. For those looking for access to no simulcast delays, no ads, full back-catalogue access and high definition video can take advantage of a premium subscription membership for $7.95AUD/month or $79.50AUD/year.
