The Rising of the Shield Hero is an anime dark fantasy television series released by Kinema Citrus studio. The anime series is inspired by the collection of short novels of Aneko Yusagi.
The subsequent manga series had 16 volumes & the anime series release on January 9, 2019, has 1 season with just 25 episodes. Now, 2020 is about to over, but where’s season 2? When is it releasing?
Or the makers have canceled the series prematurely? Well, let’s find out its expected release date in this post:
The Rising Of The Shield Hero: Plot
The story is about Naofumi Iwatani, an easy-going Japanese youth. He and three other teenagers from the alternate universe reach a parallel universe.
They aim to protect the earth and become the Cardinal heroes. They fight the Waves, who are the multidimensional monsters to preserve the planet.
The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2 Release Date
The show first aired on 9 January 2019. After this, the showrunner confirmed two more seasons for the anime series. That means not only season two, but we can expect season three of the dark fantasy series. Fans were so happy and excited that the anime got renewed for two more seasons.
However, a confirmed release date is yet to be announced. It was officially announced during Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2020 that the series would release by early 2021 for sure.
What To Expect From The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2
In season 2, we can expect Naofumi and his friends Raphtalia and Filo to continue to fight and protect the planet. They’ll find more friends on the journey along with the discovery of new enemies.
The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season two will continue right where the show ended in the first one. Some of our favorite characters will have to say goodbye on the journey. Naofumi and his gang will face more challenging villains, and they will have to stand tall and fight them.
There is no trailer released; hence we do not know if the story will take the same path as the books.
Producer Junichiro Tamura confirmed that Raphthalia would be protected in season two. As he’s a fan favorite, they’d like to bring happy news to the fans.
Season 2: Cast Details
Naofumi and his friends Raphtalia and Filo are making a come back for The Rising Of The Shield Hero season two and three as well, most probably. They will discover new friends and enemies on their journey. Hence we’ll get to see more characters.
That’s all for now. I hope the makers will release The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2 in the first quarter of 2021. If not the complete anime, fans would love to see its first look via its teaser trailer, official posters, and more.
