About The Rising Of The Shield Hero

The story revolves around Naofumi Iwatani, who was called to another world along with three other people to fight monsters called Waves. The four received four legendary weapons, a bow, a sword, a spear, and a shield. Naofumi, who is given a shield, is considered the weakest of them due to his defensive rather than offensive nature. To make matters worse, he has to face betrayal and is ridiculed by everyone. He trains only to become stronger with a slave he buys, named Raphthalia, and a winged creature he names Filo.

The first season of the anime ended quite satisfactorily. There have been battles, developments, and a change in Naofumi’s motivations. Now he seeks to save people and also half men. The next season should be just as exciting and we are ready for more exciting content.
