Release date for Season 2 of the anime “The Rising of the Shield Hero”
The first season of “The Rising of the Shield Hero”, consisting of 25 episodes, was shown from January to June 2019. In early September 2019, the director and screenwriter announced an anime extension immediately to the 2nd and 3rd seasons, however, the exact dates of the show (year, month) were not reported.
But this does not stop loyal fans from guessing the premiere date of new episodes and betting on a particular month.
It is known that the creators of the anime originally planned to launch Season 2 in October 2021. However, it was not ready for this date. As a result, the premiere of new episodes is postponed to 2022 – to April.
The production of anime takes a huge amount of time and effort of the team. We wish Takao Abo, the director of the project, good luck, and patience to us, the viewers, no matter how long it takes.

The plot of the anime “The Rising of the Shield Hero”: what was and what will be?
In real life, Naofumi Iwatani is an ordinary lover of manga, anime and video games. He spends his entire student life precisely in these occupations. But once the incredible happens: the book literally drags Naofumi into a parallel universe, where he, as it turned out, must become a hero in order to save the whole world.
It turns out that there are three more lucky people like Naofumi. They are part of Four Legendary Heroes. After falling into the virtual world, each of the heroes received a certain powerful artifact or weapon. For Naofumi, this is a shield that should help him become a real Shield Hero.
It would seem, live and rejoice – you are a respected hero with your own retinue … But for our guy, this is not so! Naofumi’s character is by no means heroic: he is too unsociable, distrustful, indecisive. On the third day of life in the new world, the “hero” was robbed, and even charged with rape … And here Naofumi decides to take revenge on the offenders and regain his lost reputation. Raphtalia, Half-Tanuki and Half-Raccoon, and the girl-bird Filo help him with this. They became a real team for Naofumi by chance…
Curious facts about the anime “The Rising of the Shield Hero”
- Despite the typical plot basis, when a character enters a different world and learns to survive there, critics noted a partial “freshness” of the anime story “The Rising of the Shield Hero”. This is due to the personification of the main character, Naofumi. Unlike similar characters, he is absolutely not distinguished by great courage, heroism, strength. On the contrary, he looks more like an antihero.
- The production of anime was carried out by the relatively young studio Kinema Citrus, which managed to release several real masterpieces during its short life: “Barakamon”, “Code: Breaker”, “Black Bullet”, “Eureka Seven: Psalms of Planets”, etc.
