Originally planned for an October 2021 release, ‘The Rising of the Shield Hero’ season two has now been moved to April 2022. This is the third time the isekai anime has been shifted with animation difficulties and pandemic issues being cited as the main reasoning. Hopefully, this will be the last time.
Naofumi, Raphtalia, Filo, and the ever-growing team will continue the extra-dimensional waves that are plaguing the world of the Melromarc Kingdom. Though Naofumi expressed a desire to return to his own world, he assured his friends that he would not leave them and would continue to help fight the waves. Except this time, a giant kaiju tortoise marching through the world.
Check out the teaser:
The Official English Twitter for The Rising of the Shield Hero TV show dropped a new promotional poster for the sophomore season:
Previously, a second and third season of the hit anime was announced at the 2019 CrunchyRoll Expo panel. The first season was a “simuldub” which meant the Japanese and English versions were released at the same time.
The Rising of the Shield Hero is produced by Kinema Citrus and directed by Takao Abo. It is broadcasted in Japan via AT-X and in the United States by a partnership between Funimation and Crunchyroll. The hit show is based on a series of science fiction light novels by Japanese author Aneko Yusagi.
