Although it will take about half a year until the start of the second season of The Rising of the Shield Hero (jap.: “Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari”), the streaming service Crunchyroll has already released a new character teaser that shows some highlights of Naofumi.
Shield Hero Season 2 Release Date
The second season of the anime adaptation of The Rising of the Shield Hero will be directed by Masato Jinbo (Chaos; Child) in the studios Kinema Citrus and DR MOVIE. Keigo Koyanagi writes the script again, while Masahiro Suwa returns as a character designer. Kevin Penkin (Made in Abyss) once again takes over the musical accompaniment.
The launch of the sequel to the Isekai anime was originally scheduled for October 2021, but had to be postponed to April 2022 due to “various circumstances” that were not named. A third season, which has no date yet, has also already been confirmed.
The first season, which consists of 25 episodes, was broadcast on Japanese television between January and June 2019. Crunchyroll offers all episodes with English and Japanese voice acting on demand.
