The Rising of the Shield Hero is a Japanese dark fantasy isekai light novel series written by Aneko Yusagi. It follows Naofumi as he gets transferred to another world and forms a party after a rough experience. Besides him, there are 3 other “heroes”, but things get pretty complicated.
The full synopsis of the 2nd season goes:
After their battle with Glass, Naofumi and the other heroes have a meeting with the queen and Naofumi is shocked to learn about the seven star heroes. Still reeling from this revelation, more drama unfolds on the islands before Naofumi and his party can return to Melromarc. A massive monster bearing the appearance of a giant tortoise must be defeated. The monster is so powerful that even the mightiest adventurers cannot defeat him so what hope is there for Naofumi?
The Rising of the Shield Hero is a very popular franchise, and we’ll have to wait for the release date in October for Season 2!
