With another Wave happening in a week, Naofumi Iwatani and his party have no time to waste. However, when bat familiars raid Lurolona Village and the Wave countdown comes to a halt, the Four Cardinal Heroes reconvene with the queen, Mirelia Q Melromarc, for a quick briefing. The queen presumes that the odd occurrences are linked to the Spirit Tortoise—a threatening creature that has awakened from its slumber, back to cause havoc once again. A plan to put the Spirit Tortoise to rest is devised—but out of the four men, only the cursed Shield Hero agrees to help.

The second season of The Rising of the Shield Hero fails to match the first in terms of interest. One of its major flaws is its overall brevity, which makes the new adventure feel rushed and forced. The first season already provided a satisfying conclusion, so the plot twists in the second season feel unnecessary. The initial episodes are fast-paced, with a continuous succession of pressing situations that leave little time to assimilate everything that is happening or to appreciate the new characters.

The cast is expanded with new additions, but some of these characters are completely marginal because there is not enough time to develop ...

Mixed Feelings
The first season was a diamond of isekai anime, it is brilliant and it is a masterpiece. Sadly, this new sequel has gone downhill and It is quite dissapointing.

I'll cut it short why this sequel is dissapointing:
1. Unlike the first season, now the studio decide to made Filo a loli pedo bait character, it is embarrasing, disgusting and for sure targeted for a certain audience as a "fanservice".

2. There's lot more fanservices.
When people click and decide to watch "Tate no Yuusha" season 2, first thing that came to mind are what make the anime great in the first place and that gems brought us ...

As I'm fairly sure I mentioned in my previous piece, Shield Hero has an identity problem. The show doesn't seem to know what to do with itself in the absence of Naofumi being unfairly slighted and oppressed by those around him.

Matter of fact, the show starts by posing a problem the Cardinal Heroes need to solve and the 3 others straight up refuse to help for no good reason and walk away, almost as if it were written in their DNA that they just necessarily have to be assholes to make the story work. The saving grace is that other than a couple of throw-away ...
