Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 1 Recap:
To become the world’s “Cardinal Heroes,” Naofumi Iwatani, a young Japanese man, and three other young men from other universes were sent to a parallel world. They were there to fight inter-dimensional hordes of monsters known as Waves. They each had their own legendary weapons and armor when they were summoned. Naofumi got the Legendary Shield, which is the only thing that can protect you. The other heroes got a sword, a spear, and a bow, which are meant to attack. Naofumi’s luck goes downhill after his single companion, who turns out to be the princess of the kingdom, betrays him, steals all of his possessions, and leaves him without any help or supplies. She falsely accuses him of sexually assaulting her.
A now-cynical Naofumi is forced to train as a hero alone while working to make money. He buys from a slave trader a young tanuki demi-human girl named Raphtalia and an egg that turns into a bird-like monster, which he names Filo. Both quickly grow up and become powerful warriors under Naofumi’s care. Naofumi and his friends work together to carry out their mission as saviors as they unravel the mystery of the Waves and why they are a threat not only to their world but to other worlds as well. They gain the trust and gratitude of the people as they do good deeds.
Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2 Release Date:
An anime series called The Rising of the Shield Hero is based on the light novels by Aneko Yusagi that have the same title, and it is based on anime. At this year’s Crunchyroll Expo, it was announced that the show will get a second and third season, as well. This was announced at the 2020 virtual Crunchyroll Expo. The second season of the show will start in 2021. Masato Jinbo will take over for Takao Abo as director, and the rest of the staff will keep their jobs. Kinema Citrus and DR Movie will make the movie.

Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2 Expected Cast:
Season 2 of “The Rising of the Shield Hero” showed Naofumi and his companions embarking on new journeys. We learned a little bit more about who will be returning for Season 2 as well. Since the first season’s cast has been announced, it appears that most of them will be returning. Toshiyuki Miyamoto will direct the cast, which features Kaito Ishikawa in the role of Naofumi, Asami Seto in Raphtalia, Rina Hidaka in Filo, and Yoshitsugu Matsuoka in Ren Amaki.
They’ll all be on a panel discussing anime at the 2021 Crunchyroll Expo, which takes place online from August 5-7. Then, learn more about their characters and the show’s long-term prospects.
Season 2 will have a few changes from previous seasons. For this season, Masato Jinbo will be taking over as director from Takao Abo, so that’s the first thing to keep an eye out for. For Season 2, Kinema Citrus will be partnering with DR Movie, who made the show for Season 1. Anime character design and soundtrack composer Masahiro Suwa and Kevin Penkin will also be returning for the show.
Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2 Expected Plotline:
Season 2 of “The Rising of the Shield Hero” hasn’t had an official plot synopsis made public yet. However, the official trailer seems to show that the new season will pick up where Season 1 left off. Glass, a hero like Naofumi from another world, came to fight Naofumi at the end of Season 1. Glass is known as “the Fan Hero.” Glass says that she thinks the Cardinal Heroes and the Waves are connected in some way. She decides to get rid of the Cardinal Heroes because she thinks that will stop the hordes of monsters and save her world in the long run. There is a good chance that we will see more of Glass in Season 2. She leaves at the end.
We may also see Naofumi going on more adventures outside of the kingdom. Naofumi was taken to a kingdom where other countries were kept from him and the other heroes at first. However, these other nations have to deal with the Waves on their own without getting any help. By the end of the first season, Naofumi has said that he’s going to leave the kingdom. We might see how the rest of this parallel world has been doing.
