The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 9 preview video was released on the official KADOKAWAAnime Youtube channel on Monday—preview images were also released on the official site. After an emotional goodbye from Raphtalia at the end of last week’s episode, Naofumi has to do whatever it takes to get her and Filo back.
This week’s episode might look to be slower at first glance but it’s clear this will be about how they can find Raphtalia, and Filo as well. It looks like Naofumi is going to be dealing with a Shikigami seeing as how he acquires the “Shikigami Shield” in the preview video. And the description of this week’s episode details how Naofumi’s blood and Raphtalia’s hair are needed to find Raphtalia in the first place. Watching the preview, that all seems obvious. But what could become a cause for concern is still up in the air. And knowing how The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 is, things aren’t going to go over that smoothly. So it’s safe to assume that we’re in for another big moment this week as well.
Marina Maki (Demon Slayer, Uzaki-chan Wants To Hang Out!) will be making her episode direction and storyboard debut this week. Masahiro Suwa (episodes 3, 7, and 8) will return as the lone chief animation director. Keigo Koyanagi will remain the scriptwriter.
