The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2: Plot
Incredibly, the anime already gets renewed for a third season which shows that the creators are confident that their work will impress us to the core. Fans will be thrilled to watch the second season while knowing that the third season will come for sure. Coming to the plot, we got the news that almost the whole manga got used up in the first season of anime, so the second season will probably feature the story from the original novel (virtual). And fans who read the manga can testify the first half of the upper statement. At the same time, the writers of manga and the web novel are different; the story can have some significant changes but that we will see in the coming plot. I know that spoilers are the worst thing for a binge-watchers so I can only ask from you guys to stay with a little patience.
The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2: Storyline
When we think about controversy and mess, The Rising of the Shield Hero looks like a perfect fit. Well, let me tell you why I am saying it a “controversy” and “mess”. Mess because Naofumi (our protagonist) gets dragged into a parallel universe due to a book where he is the master of a legendary shield( which turns out to be of no help in his quest). And now talking of the controversy, Naofumi gets falsely accused of a sexual assault to his sole companion (who is also the princess of the world where Naofumi is). Still, the truth is that the princess ran away with all of Naofumi’s belongings. Later Naofumi partners up with a demi-human slave, Raphtalia and also gets a mysterious egg which subsequently opens up as a bird. Naofumi takes care of them both and names the bird as Filo. The trio tries to untangle the knot behind the Waves but discovers something more dreadful.
