IFailNoNutNovember Since the manga are rather new, having barely any chapters, i think for now it wouldn't be worthwhile to make separate threads for them yet. Year One is also a canon prequel and i believe is thus justified to always be posted in this thread, given it is the same series still (just like how seasons 1 and 2 from certain series are merged).
So for short, i'd say just keep it all confined to this thread right now.
I pretty much agree with HungryWorld and it is a case by case basis
When Sarada manga came out and we had the old Naruto discussion thread and Naruto ended, I merged the Naruto Gaiden and Naruto thread. We had some turn out due to Sarada's mother controversy.
When Fairy Tail was ongoing and we had so many spinoffs that were short, we kept it in the general thread. Some of the spinoffs were 4komas, those 4 panel comedic series of chino ones. It is hard to discuss in a separate thread.
For the A Certain Magical Index and Saint Seiya franchise, we had separate threads because the individual series were longer, older, and standalone
Same applies to Magi and its prequel series, Sinbad. Sinbad is still ongoing?
Good thing you tagged HungryWorld, I don't know what kind of spinoff Goblin Slayer has?
You mentioned 2 or 3? One is a prequel? We usually separate in its own thread like Fate Zero due to Fate Stay Night ended and Zero you don't need new fans to watch FSN because it is just fan service for veteran fans Then we had Fairy Tail Zero combined with Fairy Tail since Zero was short.fans
Taka The prequel Year One is basically just the story of Goblin Slayer in his early days, with the events being consistent with the main story and them telling how he became the goblin slayer. The light novel version of that is written by the same author. Then there's a spin-off Brand New Day which is about all the side characters. But with the longest manga adaptation of all including the main series being barely more than 30 chapters it's too short.
Ps. Magi's Sinbad spin-off already ended last year.
So much easier to deal with anime than manga. I would agree with you regardless. Trying to get more background information.
I didn't know the manga of the main series only has 30 chapters. It has to be a monthly type so I guess 5 vols or 6 since monthly manga aren't thick due to longer chapters and monthly has less release frequency compared to weekly.
Plus, manga can get canceled during publication. Anime doesn't.
Really surprised that a young franchise, Goblin Slayer, has a prequel and a spinoff all 3 of them ongoing. Pretty ambitious and successful despite the anime getting flack by Western fans and Youtubers trying to cash on anything controversial.
Bigger franchises have more money and established fanbase. Been noticing shonen series going down novel route.
News on the spin-off, Brand New Day. It will end in May 2019
The May issue of Square Enix's Monthly Big Gangan magazine revealed on Thursday that it will publish the final chapter of Masahiro Ikeno's Goblin Slayer: Brand New Day spinoff manga in the magazine's next issue on May 25.
Yen Press is publishing the manga simultaneously with Japan. The manga launched in May 2018 in Monthly Big Gangan, and it follows the people around the titular character. Square Enix published the manga's first volume in Japan on September 25, and will publish the second and final volume on June 25.
Square Enix's Gangan Online magazine announced on April 25 that it has cancelled serialization on Takashi Minakuchi's manga adaptation of Kumo Kagyu's Goblin Slayer Gaiden 2: Tsubanari no Daikatana (Daikatana of Singing Death) serialized novel. Square Enix stated the cancellation was due to "various circumstances." Square Enix will reveal a "new development" for a manga adaptation of the novel series at a late date.
The manga launched in December on Square Enix's Manga Up! app and on Gangan Online, and Square Enix published three chapters.
The novel, a spinoff of Kagyu's Goblin Slayer novel series, launched on Gangan GA in September 2018. The novel focuses on adventurers taking on the infamous "Dungeon of the Dead."
SB Creative published the first volume of Kumo Kagyu's Goblin Slayer dark fantasy novel series in February 2016, and Kōsuke Kurose (The IDOLM@STER Neue Green for Dearly Stars) launched an ongoing manga adaptation in Big Gangan in May 2016. The novels have inspired spinoff novels and manga series. Yen Press has licensed both the novels and Kōsuke Kurose's manga adaptation. Yen Press is also releasing the Goblin Slayer Side Story: Year One and Goblin Slayer! Brand New Day spinoff manga.
A television anime adaptation premiered in Japan on October 6, and Crunchyroll streamed the series with subtitles as it aired. Funimation also streamed the series with an English dub. The Goblin Slayer: Goblin's Crown theatrical anime episode will open in Japanese theaters in 2020.
Taka: Thanks Master Menos! I'll work on finishing the Winter 2020 guide.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.
Jan 19, 2020 15:57:41 GMT
Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
