A new anime show ‘Rising of the Shield Hero’ is in town. Based on a light novel series by ‘Aneko Yusagi’, it is spreading like fire. In this, the protagonist is summoned into a parallel world with three other young men from parallel universes. Here, they become the world’s Cardinal Heroes.
Touching sensitive topics such as child slavery and false rape, this show has reached to the masses and is continuously gaining popularity. So, for the fanbase, we have new information regarding season 2 of this show.
The story progressed in a way that we were sure to expect season 2 for the anime. Also, Crunchyroll announced season 3 alongside season 2. So the story will go slower this time with longer arcs. This will also give the new characters time to develop and fit into the main plot.
Naofumi finally became a proper hero towards the end of season 1. So he decides to go out and defend other regions from the threat of the waves. However, the waves are weapons of heroes from another world making it tough for him to defend. Although, the finale cliffhanger tells us that Naofumi can now give his enemies a tough fight.
Naofumi, Raphtalia, and Filo will be encountering a new enemy. Moreover, they’ll be getting new companions. This also means that the show will introduce new characters in season 2. Moreover, Crunchyroll also mentioned the huge turtle carrying town on its back. The shield hero and his companions will have to fight it as their journey goes on.
