Kodoani.com – It’s hard to believe it’s been almost three years since Season 1 of Rising of the Shield Hero end. Given the isekai anime’s hectic run, as well as the hectic few years the world has had since its end, it’s understandable that even its most ardent fans can forget some points. its crux.
That being said, with Season 2 set to begin airing in April 2022, audience excitement is high for Shield Hero’s long-awaited return. To get ready to follow our hero to the world’s secrets, it’s time to recap what happened at the end of Season 1.
Naofumi’s Name Has Been Removed For Mistakes
Immediately after being summoned by the Melromarc Kingdom to take on the role of Hero of the Shield, Naofumi Iwatani was betrayed by her party member Myne, secretly Princess Malty Melromarc. Accused of sexually assaulting her, he has become a villain across the country, making it difficult to forge a partnership with three other Legendary Heroes or find people to join his cause. However, his good deeds throughout the land gradually earned him the respect of many, even if he did so reluctantly.
Naofumi eventually exposed many of the crimes that Myne had committed, including perjury, arson, and treason, in addition to King Aultcray Melromarc disposing of the Heroes from the rest of the world. By uncovering these violations and protecting Princess Melty Melromarc from her sister’s plot, Naofumi was cleared of all previous charges. Not only did he help restore his reputation throughout Melromarc, he also supported the release of Myne and Aultcray from execution, creating a benevolent personality for himself.
One of Naofumi’s enemy forces in Season 1 is the hierarchy of the Church of the Three Heroes. Aside from the rumors about Naofumi, their teaching that the Hero of the Shield was a demon made enemies hunt him down all the time. However, it has been revealed that the Church’s ultimate goal is to usurp the throne of Melromarc from the royal family and eliminate the Four Heroes.
By thwarting their plan, Naofumi gave Queen Mirellia Melromarc a reason to disband the sect, replacing it with a new religion that recognized all of the Four Heroes. This served as one of the most concrete catalysts for Naofumi to forge a partnership with Motoyasu Kitamura, Ren Amaki and Itsuki Kawasumi, the Heroes of the Spear, Sword, and Bow. However, although the new teachings of the Church of the Four Heroes will help Naofumi avoid the negative views of the populace, there may still be remnants of the previous religion that hope to avenge him .
Filo Is On His Way To Be A Queen
When Naofumi hatched Filo from a randomly selected egg, her rapid growth rate and shape-shifting ability made it clear that she was not normal. However, the nature of her unusual abilities remained a relative mystery until about halfway through season 1. Naofumi and his team only discovered Filo’s true potential through an encounter with Fitoria , the true Queen of the Filolials.
Although Fitoria initially disparages Filo’s immaturity and Naofumi’s lack of determination to reconcile with the other Heroes for the sake of the world, she challenges Filo to a duel. After this test is passed, Fitoria takes the name Filo as her successor, opening up many hidden possibilities within her. While this is not a simple achievement as Filo is still young in age and experience, she has a long way to go before she can fulfill her role.
Naofumi Is the Governor of Raphtalia Village
As a reward for all he has done for Melromarc and the world at large, Naofumi becomes governor of an area that includes Raphtalia’s hometown. Initially, he tried to establish the territory as a place for Raphtalia and Filo to settle down after everything was over, thinking he would naturally return to his own world when the time came. By working to rebuild the village, the guy managed to make it self-sufficient and bring new prosperity.
Seeing that his designs would essentially leave them behind one day, Raphtalia confessed that she couldn’t imagine life without the hero by her side. As Raphtalia was not only his first ally in the world but also the first to truly believe in him, Naofumi was moved by her plea. Now that he’s played an important role in so many people’s lives – especially Raphtalia, Filo and Melty – Naofumi has something to be personally invested in. He’s no longer just training to survive in Rising of the Shield Hero; He is fighting to protect the people he cares about.
There Are Other Heroes To Fight
Early in season 1 of Shield Hero, the Four Heroes were surprised to find themselves facing off against a human warrior named Glass in one of the waves threatening the world. Although they initially found her to be an oddity, her presence raised questions about the truth behind the Waves. However, Naofumi and her teammates gave her some solid thinking until they met L’Arc and Therese on a mission in Cal Mira.
In his first appearance as an adventurer, and even befriending Naofumi and his allies, L’Arc and Therese are shown to be allied with Glass when a Wave suddenly hits. In the midst of the struggle, the three explain that they are Heroes of a parallel world who must fight to kill the Four Heroes of Naofumi in order to save their own reality. This revelation changes the entire move of Waves as Naofumi and the others are now not merely working to save one world, they are essentially at war with another world – a conflict. will definitely play a bigger part in Shield Hero Season 2.
