His dignity, honor, money, objective…

The hero of the shield had lost everything. What awaits him as he rises from the depths of his despair?

Three Episode Impression

Naofumi Iwatani—a young otaku—happens to find a strange book in the library one afternoon. The book tells the story of four heroes who must be summoned from another world to save a kingdom from the waves of calamity. Moments later, Naofumi is summoned into another world as the book prophesied but he has become one of the weakest heroes, the Shield Hero. Naofumi isn’t disheartened initially though and welcomes this new life…until a fateful day causes him to become hated by the kingdom and forces Naofumi to change his outlook on his heroic situation. Soon though the kingdom will learn that the Shield Hero isn’t to be seen as a weakling…

Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari has so far been an isekai unlike any other before it. Filled with raw emotion, strong characters, and excellent animation, Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari is one amazing episode after another. Naofumi stands out the most though, as he isn’t like other isekai protagonists who seem to start off with amazing stats or abilities. Naofumi must harness his defensive weapon and abilities to prove he’s a strong hero and will rely on his various allies—such as best girl of 2019 Raphtalia—to keep him alive and grounded. We are looking forward to seeing how Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari continues on from here and are expecting great things from this 25-episode series.
