He who does not stand against the sword cannot talk about the strength of his shield
If I can't win anyway, I might as well make you as miserable as I can - Naofumi Iwatani
The Rising of the Shield Hero is one of the famous #isekai animes of 2019. The story is about Four Cardinal heros who were called to some other world known as Mellromerac to protect them from Waves of Catastrophe.The Shield Hero is supposed to be the weakest of the four heros as shield is for defense and not for offence. The story mainly focuses on the ventures of the #ShieldHero and how he rises in the eyes of the common people and becomes their favourite hero.
The characters like Raphtalia, Filo and Melty are good and they are as you expect them to be. The Queen of Mellromerac receives a good entry in the anime but I wouldn't say she impresses much ,but she might have a greater role in the oncoming seasons. Also, the characters of the heros keeping aside the Shield Hero doesn't impress much. But the character development of The Shield Hero is worth watching.
Since there is only one season up till now, the story has now started gaining some momentum. In 2019's #CrunchyrollExpo the 2nd and 3rd season to this anime was announced. I would say this anime is good for #bingewatch, because I feel the concept of #isekai is not too unusual. Regarding the storyline, the 1st season is not so intriguing, but 2nd and 3rd season might have something great in stock for us.
