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.

I just don’t know what to say about this season other than I’m disappointed in it. I don’t have that many strong feelings associated with it, so it isn’t like I can pick it apart super easily to explain myself, but coming off of last season (which admittedly wasn’t perfect) into this season was a huge letdown after waiting so long for the second season. For me, most of that came down to the plot, but there are certainly other elements of Shield Hero season 2 that made it a less than ideal experience. One of those is the animation, and I can’t really say ...

Mixed Feelings
The only reason I gave this season a 5 was because of the average animation. Otherwise, it would be a 3.

This season was seriously just a DISASTER. Absolutely NOTHING was done right. All the things done perfectly in season 1 were just scraped and totally removed from this season. Way too bad a successor. I seriously can't understand how could they do this to such a great story...

"New characters were, useless plot points, overly confusing and boring storyline with the worst possible main villain"
This line sums up the entire season.

Conclusion: Watch this only if you want to simp on a character. Useless for ...

This show is a piece of trash, and I’m shocked I or anyone else ever gave it the time of day. The first four episodes of season one are decent, and while the production issues which would later come to plague the series were already rearing their ugly heads even back then—bad CG, bits of clunky animation, and so on—the actual story they told, at least as far as isekai is concerned, was fairly compelling, and the firestorm of internet controversy they ignited was thoroughly hilarious. However, immediately after this, the series devolved into the most generic isekai harem you’ve ever seen, and nothing about ...
