THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So that's how they managed to take Glass down...about time.

Idk, the episode had a feeling that it did feel like a series' finale. Obviously, I don't think it will be their biggest challenge. It's still a rather huge obstacle they finally overcame. Glass herself was no pushover.

No season 2 announced (for the AT-X version anyway)

And...it's over. Honestly, I expected something more dark after the first 4 episodes but nevermind. I was scared in some episodes (7-8) but I was surprised by how handled the comedy with the amount of dark stuff behind. Helpful and friendly cast. Some weak episodes in the middle but it's a refreshing air from most generic isekai (Kenja no Mago) or failed attempts (Slime). This is a redemption story. Best isekai since Re: Zero and Konosuba.

Farewell Naofumi, Raphtalia and Filo! 8/10 for the anime.

A top contender for worst anime of the year. What an underwhelming finale bout with Glass zzzz and gathering the loli waifu baits. 2.5/10

So the ending is a win over the other heroes and Glass?

SWEET GOOD GOD. That's underwhelming.

If this series actually got a Season 2, it would be good to recap once again.

Until then, farewell Naofumi, Rapjtalia, Filo and others. You've been kind to us, but your show ain't gonna mess our hearts longer.

Why were you expecting something more darker?
I think the LNs readers here have said that the first arc is the most darkest one (and also one of the best), I know I have told that to people, that it gets more light with time and the most depressive part was the first arc.
And that doesnt change later on, minus some arcs but much further in the LN.

How long was it? Normal episode's length orbit was 1h long as some rumors said?
Edit: okay, I've already checked it myself. Its length was regular, as all previous episodes apart from the first one.

>worst anime of the year
>rated over 8/10

Despite the desperate outpouring of sarcastic negative reviews by bitter sad trolls, this show is doing fine both in ratings and popularity.

Why are you even here? If you dislike it so much, go watch something you actually enjoy. Like Sword Art Online.

Goodbye Glass. I never really knew you and don't really care that you're gone. please don't return

Pretty good final episode. I enjoyed this series overall even if it does have some issues. I do hope for a second season cause there is a lot of story to tell. I hope we get one despite all the haters out there.

Honestly the worst part about this series is all the annoying trolls that for some reason are still watching this series despite shitting on it every chance they get. Get FAWKED.

8/10 for me.

Decent final episode.

Glass and her group her quite strong though Naofumi and his group were able to handle it.

So Glass and her group are heroes from another world. That's interesting.

Overall, this was a very good show. 8/10.

How have people made reviews and how do the mods get these threads up so fast? Advanced screenings or y'all live in Japan??

Anyway, I don’t recall naofumi hesitating to drain Glass’s SP in the LN.. they changed the reshia situation so much it’s almost a complete rewrite of the story, ffs. They basically crammed the last half of volume 5 and first half of 6 into 10 minutes... and rewrote it on top of that. Now I’m not 10000 percent sure, but I did just finish vol 6 like 3 days ago and I don’t recall them building a fort in that Demi human village... they picked up Raphtalia’s friend and that’s it..

Damn this anime got really generic at the end, still a solid fight to end the season, and I enjoyed it, but man they’ve got some things to improve in season 2. Mainly the pacing. pretty sure they’ll be in Isekai Quartet so that’ll be cool to see. Really recommend reading the LN's if you haven't already, there's so much left out and changed especially down the stretch. Solid 8/10.

People make reviews without having seen the entire series.

As for the viewing, the episode simulcast 30 minutes ago on CrunchyRoll for premium members. However there is a small delay between that and the Japanese TV airing I believe. The very first posts are probably people who watched raw or who watched on Japanese TV.

I meant commented in the discussion, like the first comment here is from 2 hours ago, but the crunchyroll premium just finished airing 10 mins ago, lol. So, yea, must be people watching the Raw

People reviewing a series without finishing it is pretty dumb, though.

They remember those people used argument that Glass was much more powerful naofumi so this was not another Overpower protagonist? I can summary the arguments of the fans in favor of anime as a lot of lies.

@Nurguburu What do you mean by "failed attempts" perhaps slime pretends to be a serious anime full of dramatic action? It felt closer to a slice of life anime than your usual OP-male-protagonist-featuring, tone that keeps from beginning to end. Very unlike this show that starts pretending to be "dark" when afterwards it's just an involuntary comedy where all those characters are idiots, but supposedly were Nao enemies and they only make the ridiculous by not being able to face a him in any way and be beaten with kicks in the balls.

I was a fan of the first few chapters of the manga, but the anime was underwhelming as well as rest of the manga.

Are they kissing on the roof? Can someone answer?

Noo, it was the last episode, at least of this Season. :( I hope we will see Season 2 one day. With all its cons, this anime was fun to watch and I must admit I will miss it a little. Sure, it had poor writing and some dull episodes, but it was not that tragic after all.

Glass was defeated. This fight was below my expectations, especially when we are talking about main fight of the final episode. Everything looked better in the previous episode, while this one's fight was quite,disappointing.
I hope to see Glass' return one day. Same goes for L'Arc and Therese.

It was extremely unwise for Naofumi to leave Cal Amira during the experience boost event. They never know when they will need a lot more power, especially when other Heroes and their parties are weak as hell and responsibility for being main character during the Wave attack lies in Shield Hero's hands.

A new member, yay! I had hopes of that green-haired girl go join Naofumi. She did great during the Wave's attack. Good to see Lecia on board. :) Raphtalia had to show already that she was jealous right after Naofumi gave more attention to Lecia by simply welcoming her to his party.

Queen's prize for defeating the pope has been claimed. It was so heartwarming to see Raphtalia's village being rebuilt and all these people willing to help, including those who received help from Naofumi or worked with him in the past. It's so nice theyto volunteered to help.

It was a good finale with happy ending full of joy. Too bad the final battle was rather disappointing.

This show feels really kinda mediocre overall. As much as I didn't really enjoyed this anime, I always don't understand why some people would hope to rather not have a second season though. I mean, we can always choose to just not watch it and let other fans enjoy them.

I enjoyed both the opening songs though.

This ending was rather sweet I guess and left me with a good feeling. But if you take the whole picture into acccount I'm disappointed over how the whole series turned out.

I still liked this enough to check out, even tho it's rather curiosity.

Shield Hero is probably the biggest disappointment I had in a while. It started out as a promising show with a darker tone, so I thought it could end up as one of the better Isekai.

How wrong I was. After the first few episodes, which I liked by the way, it started to become a chore to watch for me. As much as I loved Raphtalia in the beginning, the more I started to get annoyed by her and Filo with all that "Naofumi is the bestest of people, we love him!" in the end. Yes, that's a little exaggerated, but you get the point.

By then, it felt like that typical Isekai show (Isekai isn't necessary a bad thing for me, on a side note)... but worse. I had a hard time watching it with all that "Oh, something bad happened? Must have been Naofumi's work. No, I don't want to talk to him. The Shield Hero is bad, he is so evil" and then Naofumi was like "Yes, you're right, I suck, I don't want to talk to anyone of you either". It felt like it was running in circles for the longest time and that is what made it less enjoyable to watch for me.

Still, the animations were beautiful most of the time apart from some weird 3D monsters. I'm also in love with both openings and the second ending song. Unfortunately, these are the only good things I can say about Shield Hero.

Happy for everyone who enjoyed this anime. Wish I could have liked it as well, but I think I expected too much when so many people praised it beforehand.

I'm here as long as my wings can fly.

Cause they think they are "elitist". Which in reality, they are just bunch of No Life, whom got nothing to do. So no wonder they keep torturing their selves watching show they don't like.

Even with all the changes they made in the anime i still enjoy it very much. 8/10. Sad they havent really announce season 2 but im keep hopes up and beleave that theres going to be a s2 in the future. For now i will keep buying and reading the LNs to the end and i recommend that the people who love this series do so too.

Hey theres a high chance that shield hero will be on s2 of isekai quartet that would be awesome.

Has for the crits of the show specialy @SSL443 and @papsoshea even if it sadness me that you count enjoy this series has much has i did, i still want to with you all good health.

This adaptation imo was just.... ok. It had good changes compared to the original while others are just terrible/doesn't make any sense at all. The use of CGI was very bad and tons of cutting from the original.
I wouldn't say shield hero is the worse anime out there nor is the best, but it was just ok. Somewhat a little better compared to other isekai shows like kenja no mago, isekai wa smartphone to tomo ni and etc but has too many problems going on.
6.9/10

Welp time to wait for shield hero's brother coming next season/a few weeks from now.

Unfortunately. This finale left me with a good and joyful feeling as well in the last scenes, but it's sad to look at this show as a whole, I mean how it turned to be like and by that how it disappointed many people, including me. This anime had huge potential, but ended up as a fine, but regular, isekai-based show. Though I still like and enjoy the general concept of the world as it was presented in "Shield Hero".

The battle between,glass vs naofumi is very good although their lots of skip or dropped scene that did not seen yet... But there result that I give will be 8/10 during fight screen

But there is very confused between naofumi x rapthalia and that's why did not showing the kissing scene... What's that?? Looks like pokemon xy&z ending episode between ash x Serena kissing scene that they did not show it on the viewers... That's not unfair.... We are not children anymore and mostly are adult views only... This will be the most disappointed scene have ever....

But anyways forget that... So I want give the score 8-8.5/10 only

I mean, I know how you feel XD But you can think this way, the anime so far has adapted the first 5 volumes, and the light novel in Japan has already published 20 volumes with 21st volume coming soon, of course their relationship is gonna be a....hmmm...a slow burn I guess.


Based on what I read (volume 10 so far), rest assured they will be more romantic moments between the two

Pretty fine ending, I’ve to say!

Last 4-5 of minutes or so was really nice but the proceedings before that were so-so at best. Glass v Naofumi was ‘okay’ this time around, looks like he’s really grown whereas she’s gotten dull over the period. Pretty tough situation for her to be in I’m sure, those memories of her and the insight of her world looked horrendous! A little surprised L’Arc and his compatriot didn’t step in to finish off Naofumi despite Raphtalia moving away from her post but I guess that’s just how it is. Sound Department did a better job this episode too, it’s been rather luckluster for the most bit but totally delivered this episode! Raphtalia x Naofumi scene there in the end was heart-rending, he finally noticed and yet didn’t actually give a proper reply lol. But I suppose it’s good enough for now. Nice little present for Raphtalia too, that was nice to see, and a new party member! Meanwhile, the heroes remain as useless as ever. Good lord, Itsuki hasn’t learned a thing from Bitch’s earlier accusation. Anyway, back to what I was on about, seeing the two sides of Naofumi there followed by the great ED playing, it was a good way to sign off for sure!

As for the whole season in general, it’s been fairly average (maybe just about average at that too) for me to be painfully honest. Characters were the biggest mishaps of this show for me, far too one-dimensional. Trash was up to no good yet again and getting caught red-handed by his own wife now, jeez. Spear Hero finally seems to understand something but I’m sure it’s just a one time fluke. Itsuki saying, “we’re the only ones who can save around the world now” was just a big highlight of their uselessness and the very repetition of that countless times throughout. I really didn’t like Naofumi until this episode though and his party members were sure nice to keep up with along with the Blacksmith and Fitoria. Story-wise, this show has been fairly average. Animation-wise, it was pretty good for the most bit with jarring CGI use every now and then.

Over all, a 5/10 from me.
I really tried to like this show but from the very first iffy rape accusation followed by the mishaps one after another, I just couldn’t sadly. I’m not particularly up for a 2nd Season but since this show seemed to be fairly popular, I hope there’ll be one for their sakes.

I share the curiosity of this show getting a second season. Is it as popular in Japan as it is here in the States? If it is, then a sequel is definitely possible. If it isn't, it probably won't get one.

Edit: I've actually watched the episode now, so let's talk. As usual, I'll start with my normal episode discussion then move to my thoughts on the show.

Maybe she's just afraid of the shield itself Naofumi. It does look kind of scary. That was a pretty cool combo skill. It has nothing against plot armor though. It's important to note that Naofumi needed to use Air Shield to get to the other ship. We'll get back to that later. First introduction to Vassal Weapons. Nice. What will Glass gain from continuing to fight? She is objectively at a significant disadvantage now. It could be argued that she has no chance of winning as long as the Soul Eater shield can be used by Naofumi, she has no chance of winning whatsoever, so she's literally just throwing her life away. I liked the animation quality in that "what am I fighting for" scene. Okay, let's talk about something for a quick second here. Is Raphtalia suddenly like Black Hanekawa in that she can jump incredible distances for no reason at all? Naofumi needed an Air Shield to get to that ship, but Raphtalia can just hop over there? Wat? At least Naofumi using alcohol to intoxicate his enemy was funny enough. Lecia is here now! Itsuki continues to be a dumbass. Kicking out B-tier waifu material is a mistake he will regret. How did the Elhart learn of the reward? That's a good reward, Naofumi. Nice decision. I don't even think Naofumi has an incentive to return to the real world now. Here, at least he has status. Honestly, given his current situation, I'd rather stay with the waifus then return to the normal world. Melty blushing was cute. That's a good flag. Motoyasu telling Bitch off, finally. Wait, what the fuck? Why was the slave trader talking with one of the Queen's ninja people? Does he have connections to the upper nobility?

Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari was my first major anime disappointment that I have experienced in real time. I began watching it two or three weeks after it had begun airing, while it was still "good." I was fascinated by its interesting approach to the isekai genre, with the country the hero was supposed to save being turned against him. I was, to be blunt, in love. And then the show made a mistake. And then it made another. And then another. And it kept on going downhill until we get to where we are today. How a show with such a solid premise could throw it all away is astounding to me. The first five episodes carried so much emotional weight to them and will continue to be some of my favorite introductory episodes to an isekai yet. That doesn't excuse the fact that as soon as Filo showed up, the show got worse. And it continued to go downhill. Sure, the other three heroes are fucking idiots, but this show took it way too far in constantly putting them down. It just gets old. The show wasn't entirely bad, with some good moments littered throughout, but ultimately, I find Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari to be a disappointing show that fails to live up to its potential. I heard the source material just keeps getting worse, so they should end it here on a somewhat high note. The ending was conclusive enough, people are generally fine with the quality of the show, just leave it here. I give Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari an extremely low 7/10.

I felt pretty sad the way that other three heroes were treated. Of course they were self-righteous jerks who still treat this whole catastrophe as a mere game, and probably need some rude awakening, but downright making them useless, powerless, and sometimes comic reliefs probably aren't the ways to make us root for Naofumi. For example, Motoyashu is clearly a guy who thinks with his lower body than using brain, but I do think mishandling his character is actually hurting the series overall.


Oh well, that is as far as the first season goes. The next arc in the light novel consists a long one that lasts 4 volumes and one following about the aftermath and new encounters, if next season got announced, probably is the way.

In case people are wondering if the other three will get more useful in the next 5 volumes,the answer is...well, don't hold your breath XD

I'm actually gutted that this is over. This is one of my favourite anime in recent years and i am praying that it gets another season. I wanna see more of Naofumi and Co. Plus i also like the new addition to the party so i wanna see more of her.

It's obvious that over the course of the whole season, the other 3 heroes didn't learn a damn thing but fuck 'em cause Naofumi doesn't need them with such strong allies on his side!

I share the curiosity of this show getting a second season. Is it as popular in Japan as it is here in the States? If it is, then a sequel is definitely possible. If it isn't, it probably won't get one.


The volume boost for the original LN and manga adaptation are very VERY good, although BD sales are pretty medicore (I mean they were sold as expensive BD boxes) but I doubt they matter as much as other shows.

In the Japanese forums, and twitter feeds, the show has generated quit a lot reactions, of course we are not talking about AOT and KoY level, but definitely in the high range.

Is that mean we will see a season 2, so far the chances are pretty solid. After all, please do remember the show was heavily funded by Crunchyroll, Bililil (an official Chinese anime streaming site) and other foreign sources, so in this case, I do believe the foreign popularity plays a factor here.

Hopefully this answers your question.

That did a pretty good job at answering my question, actually. I didn't realize it had garnered such a response over there. Mind if I ask what KoY stands for? I can't figure it out. AOT obviously is Attack on Titan. I forgot about Crunchyroll's involvement. That's a good point. I didn't know about Bilibili's involvement either. Thanks for the info.

It seems to work just fine. He is the main character, they are just few of many NPCs who make his game more difficult. It is "rising of the shield hero", no "three heroes save the world and there is also some Naofumi dude."

There has to be some bad guys in the story. If someone summoned 4 random people in 16-20 years range to another world chances that three of them are useless self centered a-holes are pretty good.

Anyway, if the story was written as you suggested it would be a just a different story and no one knows how it would turn out. What author did clearly worked just fine.
