The Rising of the Shield Hero is an anime adaptation of the manga series of the same name, which, in turn, is adapted from books written by Aneko Yusagi. The first season aired in January 2019 and covers the first five volumes of its literary counterparts.
The story follows Naofumi Iwatani, a young man with a relaxed attitude who moves to a parallel universe, alongside three other young men. Then, they go there to become the cardinal heroes of the world and thus fight against interdimensional monsters called Waves.
Well, after an action-packed and well-received season, here’s everything we know about Season 2 of The Rising of the Shield Hero.

As soon as an official date comes up, we will update this story.
Spoilers: what will happen in the second season?
The first season chronicles Naofumi’s journey as he becomes a Shield hero. Unlike his other three colleagues, who grew up in luxurious homes, our protagonist faced difficulties since childhood.
Now, when entering the parallel universe, he faces more obstacles – and starts to trust only himself, as he becomes more and more cynical. Eventually, at the end of the first season, Naofumi finds a true friendship, surpassing the other heroes.
The ending reveals that they have more heroes from other worlds who can offer tough competition. So, in the second season, Naofumi has to hone his skills, especially if he intends to protect this world.
Season 2 additionally takes us back to the secrets of the book that Naofumi originally found before going to a new world. We also met the king in a courtroom and there is a great story that involves this character as well.
Raphtalia and Filo share moments from their past that they remember. On the other hand, they continually update the book to present the squad with new missions and adventures. Naofumi also meets several other new characters on their journey in the next edition.
The trailer for the second season doesn’t have much concrete information for fans, but it does give a hint about the future while recalling some key moments from the past.
After seeing the book that Naofumi first encountered before going to a new world, the trailer begins with the court scene where all the heroes met the king for the first time.
Next are the moments when Raphtalia and Filo share facts from their past that they remember.
After these three have taken turns, the book opens up to a new scene. The way they use the book to present the various scenes gives the impression that the book is being updated with its various adventures.
Also, the new scene shows them outside a building marked by a green flag, which seems appropriate considering that Naofumi uses green as his primary color. While the trailer shows no dialogue, the few moments of extra footage reveal a series of secondary characters that Naofumi will encounter in his adventures.
Their roles in the story are unknown, but considering the previous cast of adorable characters, these new ones can be interesting.
