Naofumi Iwatani, a no-nonsense otaku who spends his days playing games and manga, suddenly finds himself summoned to a parallel universe! He discovers himself as one of four heroes armed with legendary weapons and tasked with saving the world from prophesied destruction. As the Shield Hero, the weakest of the heroes, all was not as one would expect. Naofumi is soon lonely, penniless and betrayed. With no one to turn to, and nowhere to run, he was left with only his shield. Now, Naofumi must rise to become the legendary Hero of the Shield and save the world!
The Rising of The Shield Hero anime series premiered with a two-hour special in January 2019 and lasted 25 episodes.
