Anime fans were left wondering when the second season of “The Rising of the Shield Hero” would be released after the first season ended in 2019. The good news for them is that they won’t have to wait too long for its debut. Aneko Yusagi’s light novel series is the inspiration for the isekai dark fantasy anime. As one of the Cardinal Heroes of another universe, Naofumi Iwatami has been given the Legendary Shield as a weapon, and the storey revolves around him.
A wave of monsters known as Waves has been sent to him and the other Cardinal Heroes. But when Naofumi is unjustly accused of sexual assault by his partner and stolen of his valuables, things take a turn for the worse for him. Naofumi spends a lot of time in the series trying to not only defeat Waves but also repair his public image.
The usage of sexual assault as a plot component in “The Rising of the Shield Hero” sparked criticism among anime fans and reviewers from sites like Anime News Network and CBR. Despite this, it appears that Season 1 was a big hit with the audience. In fact, Crunchyroll stated that the anime series had a considerable impact on the sales of the corresponding manga and novels. As a result of the show’s overwhelming popularity, a third season felt inescapable.
Release Date Of Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2
Even if the release date for “The Rising of the Shield Hero” was not finalised, it did not take long for a Season 2 or 3 announcement to be made. As reported by Anime News Network, it was confirmed that Seasons 2 and 3 of the anime series will be coming, but no dates for each season were offered at the time. At Crunchyroll’s 2020 Virtual Expo, Season 2 was revealed to be coming sometime in 2021.
In March of this year, the “Kadokawa Expo 2020” stated that Season 2 will be released in October 2021, further narrowing the release window. Crunchyroll, who streamed Season 1 in the United States, confirmed in a follow-up tweet that the series will be released in October, though no precise date was specified. As a result, many fans were left disappointed when it was announced that Season 2 will be delayed until 2022. That would have been the latest date in July 2021.

Of Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2
Naofumi and his crew’s next adventure may have been teased in “The Rising of the Shield Hero” Season 2’s trailer, but the cast members who will appear in Season 2 were revealed. The majority of the voice actors from Season 1 appear to be returning. In addition to Naofumi, Asami Seto portrays Raphtalia, and Rina Hidaka portrays Filo in the cast, which also includes Makoto Takahashi as Motoyasu Kitamura; Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Ren Amaki; Maaya Uchida as Melty; and Kaito Ishikawa as Naofumi.
The Crunchyroll Expo 2021, which takes place virtually from August 5 to 7, will feature a panel featuring Ishikawa, Seto, and Hidaka (via ComicBook.com). Then, keep an eye out for more information about their characters and the future of the series.
It was also revealed in the trailer that there will be some personnel changes for Season 2 of the show. For starters, Takao Abo is stepping down as director in favour of Masato Jinbo for the duration of this season. Season 2 will see Kinema Citrus reuniting with South Korean animation studio DR Movie after previously working with Kinema Citrus on the first season. Masahiro Suwa, the creator of the anime’s characters, and Kevin Penkin, the composer of the soundtrack, will return.
Plot Of Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2
Season 2 of “The Rising of the Shield Hero” has yet to receive an official synopsis. The official trailer, on the other hand, suggests that Season 2 will pick up right where Season 1 left off. Naofumi fought against Glass, a hero who resembles the protagonist and is known as the Fan Hero in the Season 1 finale of the series. It is revealed by Glass that she believes that the Cardinal Heroes and the Waves are linked in some way. To save her world, she intends to wipe out the Cardinal Heroes, believing that doing so will put an end to the hordes of monsters. In the end, Glass retreats, so we can safely assume that we will see her again in Season 2.
Naofumi’s journeys outside the kingdom are also expected to continue. Naofumi and the other heroes were initially unaware of the existence of other nations in the kingdom he was transported to. In reality, these other countries are struggling to deal with the Waves and have received no assistance at all in the process. With Naofumi announcing his intention to leave the kingdom at the end of the first season, we can expect to see how the rest of this parallel world is faring.
After hearing the news, fans’ reactions have been wild as hell, and they are eagerly anticipating the return of their favourite isekai in 2019.
But can The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 live up to our expectations? We’ll have to wait and see.
