The Rising of the Shield Hero: New Trailer and Plot

One of the main reasons that Shield Hero gained momentum as a fresh new Isekai anime series is its protagonist, Naofumi. Like most other Isekai protagonists, Naofumi arrives in another world and is excited for whatever adventure awaits him. However, the character goes through quite the learning curve in the new world he finds himself in.

Rather than being a lauded hero, Naofumi is deeply despised by the people of the magical world he is transported to. He faces a constant necessity to prove himself to the citizens that only see him as a villain.

After assembling a band of heroes of his own, the second season will see Naofumi in a much better spot when it comes to his reputation. However, the season will also feature our protagonist facing some serious threats. Check out the newly released trailer for Season 2 of the series below:

The official description for The Rising of the Shield Hero series reads: 

"Iwatani Naofumi, a run-of-the-mill otaku, finds a book in the library that summons him to another world. He is tasked with joining the sword, spear, and bow as one of the Four Cardinal Heroes and fighting the Waves of Catastrophe as the Shield Hero.

Excited by the prospect of a grand adventure, Naofumi sets off with his party. However, merely a few days later, he is betrayed and loses all his money, dignity, and respect. Unable to trust anyone anymore, he employs a slave named Raphtalia and takes on the Waves and the world.

But will he really find a way to overturn this desperate situation?"
