The trailer summarizes some of the key events of “The Rising of the Shield Hero” Season 1 and only gives a brief glimpse of what awaits you in the second season.
What Is The Plot?
Season 2 will pick up on the cliffhanger from the end of season one. After the fight between Naofumi and Glass and the argument between Raphtalia, Filo, and Melty with L’Arc and Therese has been decided, new opponents and dangers await the hero of the shield and his allies.
Naofumi, Raphtalia, and Filo will add more brave warriors to their team in their new encounter to arm themselves for the upcoming attacks of the monsters. These are getting stronger and the fights harder. As the first teaser picture shows, a mysterious turtle carrying an entire city on its back will play an important role.
Spoiler! In addition, Naofumi’s group will have to deal with the secret of the hero’s weapons. The wave-like monster attack on their world is linked to the weapons of other legendary heroines and heroes in parallel worlds. This knowledge could be necessary for the fate of the world and the decision for or against the fight against monster waves.
Season 2 of the anime series is also produced by Kiname Citrus (” Made in Abyss “). The studio is getting support from the Korean animation studio Dr. Movie for the new episodes. The studio previously helped with American animation productions such as “Avatar – The Last Airbender.”
