Forgive my ignorance, I never even heard of this series till now. Reading some of the episode topic and got me wondering... Are there no knights? Do they just stupidily rely purely on adventurers for everything? Or are the ruling parties of the world just asses who don't give a s*** about the people? Or are the Goblins smart enough to target places that fall outside of the kingdom or whatever the equal to one is?

The government's too preoccupied with sending forces to stop the Demon Lord's forces from taking over the world to send any soldiers on goblin slaying missions so it's left up to adventurers.

Does sound like s*** writing. They leave it to adventurers who either see it as beneath them or get slaughtered resulting in everyone dying to hubris. Tey du da smrt ing.

The reasons don't matter at all cause the series is about being edgy with goblins and not anything else.

So Berserk then?

Berserk's edginess is well contextualized and meaningful to the plot.

It's well explained but screeching s*** writing is easier.

It's a problem of manpower and economics. GS is silver and there are only two ranks above him, regularly contracted out for big national level missions. As you might guess there are not enough of these people to stop bigger threats and handle local things at the same time.

When we get to silver rank and below it becomes a money problem. Goblins are way out in the field. The quest givers are usually poor and living off the land. Adventurers want quests with substantial pay unless they're desperate because equipment and material costs will end up far surpassing the reward money. Seasoned or greedy adventurers will not take them willingly. When it comes to nests it's high effort for low pay and the government won't respond unless it's a serious situation.

The guild is within its power to refuse these quests. That however will allow the proliferation of goblins to go unchecked. Their other option is to offer the quests and hope that people take them and return. They can argue and ban and lecture all they want, they need someone to take those low pay quests.

If that was too much to read: the system is broken and nobody wants to kill goblins for pennies unless they have to.
