First Noted: Season 1/ Episode 3 “Unexpected Guests

Character Introduction

At 107 years old, you’d believe Kouhito was the oldest of the three as he tosses his age around and tries to push the idea he is the de-facto leader of the group. However, he is actually the youngest, sans Goblin Slayer and Onna, and it seems his pride as a dwarf allows him to forget that.


Touyama Nao As Yousei

Character Introduction

An elf of noble blood, Yousei often finds herself battling it out with Kouhito to be seen as leader of their group. Yet, don’t let her youthful look fool you, Yousei is over 2000 years old and still spry. Hence her being picked to represent elves to gather what is necessary to undercut the resurrected Demon Lord’s power.

Uketsukejou (Uchida Maaya): Pardon Me

First Noted In: Goblin Slayer: Season 1/ Episode 5 “Adventures and Daily Life”

Who Is Uketsukejou

Uketsukejou has a multifaceted role in the guild. She, alongside a few others, collects quests and payment, as well as handles the reports adventurers give after they claim a quest is done. Uketsukejou is also trained to judge the qualifications of adventurers who seek to be promoted to another rank. Something which, in episode 5, she does alongside Goblin Slayer and Kantokukan. Someone who seemingly is her friend based on her revealing to Kantokukan that she has a crush on Goblin Slayer.


Iwanaka Mutsuki As Hojin

First Noted In: Goblin Slayer: Season 1/ Episode 5 “Adventures and Daily Life”

Who Is Hojin

Hojin is an adventurer who helps us understand how adventurers get promoted. Also, he is used to show us why an overseer, a fellow adventurer, is usually called into the meeting because they might try to attack whoever is presiding over the decision. Which Hojin plays out in his mind when he realizes that he not only won’t be promoted but actually get demoted.


Hioka Natsumi As Kantokukan

First Noted In: Goblin Slayer: Season 1/ Episode 5 “Adventures and Daily Life”

Who Is Kantokukan

She is Uketsukejou’s friend and co-worker and takes part in Hojin’s promotion meeting as someone who makes sure the applicant is being honest. How? Well, by using the blessings she was given, magic that is, to do so. As for her personality? She is calm, religious, and seems to be a normal young lady. Nothing about her stands out too much.


Itou Ayasa As Minarai and Maeda Seiji As Shinmai

First Noted In: Goblin Slayer: Season 1/ Episode 5 “Adventures and Daily Life”

Who Are Minarai and Shinmai

These two are porcelain level adventurers who help craft how adventurers, as much as they are sometimes solo or in groups, are part of a larger community. Speaking about each one specifically, Minarai is a magic user with a weapon which looks like a sword but seems to be more like a rod. Shinmai, on the other hand, is a sword user who learns a club works just as well after talking to Goblin Slayer.


Endou Aya As Sword Maiden

First Noted In: Season 1/ Episode 6 “Goblin Slayer in the Water Town”

Who Is Sword Maiden

The Archbishop of the Supreme God who sits within the temple of law, within Water Town, is a legendary figure. She, alongside a few others, were responsible for, ten years ago, dispelling the demon lord. Based on how she acts, she seems very nice and probably doesn’t make a big deal of the role she played in dispelling the demon lord. Also, be it because she is blind, or another reason, she wears a blindfold.

About Amari Sali 3332 Articles
New Jersey native Amari Sali takes the approach of more so being a media advisor than a critic to sort of fill in the gap left between casual fans of media and those who review productions for a living. Thus being open about bias while still giving enough insight, often with spoilers, to present whether something is worth seeing, buying, renting, streaming, or checking out at all.
