The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2


Naofumi is 20 years old, a student – and a real Otaku! One day, when he reads a book of the four saints, he suddenly loses consciousness and finds himself in a medieval world. But that’s not all: he himself is said to be one of the four legendary heroes called to protect the world from evil monsters from another dimension!

For this, it receives the legendary shield as a weapon, which, since it is only useful for defense – does not enjoy a particularly high reputation. When he is deceived by his only companion, he chooses a slave as a living weapon and wants to become stronger than ever.
