The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Preview
The trailer starts with the introduction of the new character of Rishia, the projectile hero. She is saved by the Bow Hero, Itsuki and garners massive respect for him but is kicked out of his team because of an act she did not commit.
Now she is taken by the team of the Shield Hero, Naofumi and his team of Raphtalia and Filo, as they try to take down the mysterious giant monster Spirit Tortoise.
Even though she is invited to be a part of the team of the shield hero, she still dreams of helping Itsuki in the future for which she takes the help of Naofumi to grow stronger and become a skilled warrior and an asset to the team.
Naofumi Iwatani: The Shield Hero
The story of The Rising of the Shield Hero follows Naofumi, a human who has been transferred to another world to become one of the protectors of the royal family of Melromarc.
At the beginning of the anime, Naofumi is portrayed as a kind and caring person who wants to bring change to the world that he has been called to and does so in an optimistic way until he is assigned to the princess of Melromarc, Malty.
But when Malty turns on him he becomes pessimistic about the nature of the world he is living in. A framed rapist and being kicked out of the royal palace, Naofumi hates all of his interactions with women in general and distrusts everyone around him.
The only way he grows his team is through the slave contracts which he makes with Raphtalia. Through his bonding with her and other slaves, he reveals a bit of the old Naofumi but still lets out the cruel side when discipline is required.
In this new season, it will be interesting to see what new changes come to the character of Naofumi and how he grows with the company of more women and friends in general.
Fans are Saving The Date: April 6
The anticipation for the dark fantasy anime is picking up more as the release date for the first episode is coming nearer.
The Rising of the Shield Hero has a special place in the hearts of the fans because of the underdog story of Naofumi, starting with no fame or wealth to becoming one of the most important assets to the kingdom.
Some of the fans have started counting the days to the eventual release of the first episode of the second season, which will mark the beginning of the next chapter in Naofumi’s journey to becoming the greatest hero.
