The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 3 Episode 1 Summary
At the start of the episode, we see Naofumi and his allies struggling in their fight against the Tapaks. After some time, our shield hero realized that the other heroes were missing one and if they were not found soon, the beast would not be easily defeated. While he was dealing with this dire situation, he received news that from now on the land would start worshiping all four heroes.
Later, when Naofomi went to buy slaves from Lurolana Village, he learned that they had been sold at high prices to several other villages. So, he decided to release them.
However, things are not as easy as they seem; every slave was taken to the underground arena in Zeltoble to fight. Naofumi and his friends decide to fight in the underground war for the freedom of the enslaved people.
