What if we tell you that The Rising of the Shield Hero has been renewed not only for season 2, but also for the third season. The official Twitter page of the show says it all! Right now, we should move our entire focus on the upcoming second installment.
One of the best Japanese Anime shows in last year’s cabinet, The Rising of the Shield Hero, was brought to us by Kinema Citrus studio. The first season was loaded with 25 action-packed episodes. Takao Abo’s top-notch direction was one of the vital reasons behind the giant-sized success of the show. The task of penning down the screenplay for the debut season was given to Keigo Koyonagi. If you are interested in watching the series then Crunchyroll is an outstanding platform for all of you. Plus, you are going to get English subtitles too!
Check out what we know about the upcoming second season!
What is the plot of the show?
Naofumi Iwatani is our young protagonist here. He is a young man living in a parallel world crammed with interdimensional monsters called Waves. He, along with three other guys, gets selected as a Cardinal Hero to protect the world from these grotesque monsters. Unlike others, he gets equipped with the Legendary Shield. It makes his task more dangerous as he lacks an effective attacking weapon.
Naofumi’s world turns upside down after getting betrayed by the Princess of the kingdom. She was his only friend. She steals everything from him and falsely accuses him of making an attempt of sexual assault on her. With Raphtalia and a bird-like monster named Filo on his side, he turns himself into a powerful warrior and also trains both of them. The trio saves the world from many threats and earns the long-lost trust of the people.
The makers have not revealed anything about the second season. Let’s hope they don’t screw it up. Just kidding! We are guaranteed to witness some jaw-dropping fights and intense drama in season 2. The upcoming season will tell us more about Waves. It will be really intriguing to see how Naofumi deals with his inner self. Especially after losing his ability to trust anyone. Stay tuned with us for more updates.
What will be the cast for the upcoming season?
Kaito Ishikawa is expected to return to give his voice to the character of Naofumi. While the voices of Raphtalia and Filo will be given by Asami Seto and Rina Hidaka respectively.
Billy Kametz has been selected for voicing the role of Naofumi in English. One of the most prominent English dubbed anime voice actors, Erica Mendez, portrays the character of Raphtalia. While Brianna Knickerbocker plays the role of Filo.
When will it release?
We know that the makers have renewed the show for two more seasons. However, we don’t know their respective release dates. But if we talk only about the second season, then we can put our money on a release date in late 2020 or in early 2021.
