Plot Of The Rising Of The Shield Hero:
As the name suggests, this series is about the rise of one of the four heroes in a world of magic and monsters. Naofumi Iwatani, a 20-year-old student, was sucked into a fantasy game like a realm where he was chosen as the Shield Hero. Three young males were also summoned from other worlds as well. However, Naofumi was the one who got trapped in a series of events due to which he was despised in this whole dangerous world. The reason behind this was a woman who joined his party; she soon betrayed him and accused him of rape.
Season 3 of The Rising Of The Shield Hero was also announced with the announcement of Season 2 back in 2019. So the fans can be happy as the series will continue for at least one season.
