The Rising of the Shield Hero is a Japanese light novel series written by Aneko Yusagi, which was later adapted into a manga series by Aiya Kyū and published by Media Factory. The rights for the series were bought by CrunchyRoll-Funimation. The manga finally took the form of an anime and was produced as 25 episode anime television series produced by Kinema Citrus that aired from January to June 2019.
The anime follows Iwatana Naofumi, an easy-going youth who finds a book in a library and is summoned to a parallel universe to become the world’s Cardinal Heroes and fight an inter-dimensional breed of monsters called the Waves.
What quickly follows is a story of betrayal, abandonment, and cynicism eventually progressing into a quest for proving one’s worth and saving the world against all odds. Though the show first came under fire after its premiere and was shrouded in controversies, the engaging storyline and unique characters were able to build for it quite a following.
