I want to say I can't believe how popular this shit has gotten but knowing the taste of anime fans out there, I'm not really that surprised.

First of all, the story is one big pity fest for our MC. This can work as long as the writer is of the higher quality, like the people who work at World Masterpiece Theater anime. Unfortunately, the writer of this story is nowhere near that caliber. The suffering our dear MC, Mr. Shieldvictim experiences feels forced and unnatural. And he only experiences it for a short moment, before he gets his cute waifu harem that will heal his read more

As I was reading the first chapter, I was thinking, Is this just a typical seinen manga about some random person travelling to another world? But boy, was I wrong about this one. It illustrated the meaning of how it was to be downgraded by society but with the essence of fantasy in a different world.

I was captivated by the story. It started with a simple cliché, that somehow lead into something much greater that makes me love this manga so much. It demonstrated the meaning of betrayal and what it meant read more

My first though was "ugh...here we go again" but there is a lot more to it than that. The story really drives that harshness of society, betrayal, and read more

Story: 9

Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari is a story of betrayal, revenge, & redemption. The story follows Naofumi Iwatani as he is suddenly brought to another world. There he is deemed as the shield hero, the weakest of the 4 heroes due to lack of attacking power. Because of that, no one wants to be his companion and what's worse is, he's eventually betrayed and framed. Scorned and loathed by the people who read more
