An exciting isekai fantasy adventure, The Rising Of The Shield Hero is an anime not to be missed. We first meet four alien heroes who are proficient with swords, spears, bows, and shields. Iwatani Naofumi, our hero, was falsely accused of a crime and left to defend himself against the Waves with just a shield. He was labeled a bad guy and an outcast. The accusations inflamed his rage, compelling him to go out on his own while swearing vengeance on his accusers. But his time spent alone is brief. By the end of the first season, a large cast of individuals has been introduced, some of whom are allies of Naofumi’s, some of whom are foes, and still, others who fall somewhere in between.
The release date for Season 2 of The Rising of the Shield Hero was April 6, 2022. On Wednesdays at 6:00 am PST/9:00 am EST, viewers in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS may watch new episodes of their favorite shows on Crunchyroll. The second season of Rising Of The Shield Hero was dubbed in six languages: English, Spanish for Latin America, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, and Russian. Season 2 of The Rising of the Shield Hero will conclude on June 29, 2022, with the publication of the thirteenth and final episode.

Shield Hero Season 3 Release Date
Neither Kadokawa nor Crunchyroll nor Kinema Citrus nor any other entity involved in the making of The Rising Of The Shield Hero had announced a release date for Season 3 as of the latest update. The third season of Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari has been announced to begin production in September 2019, but there has been no word on when it will debut on Japanese television.
Season 3 of The Rising Of The Shield Hero was given the green light for production at the same time as Season 2, so Junichiro Tamura, the show’s producer at Kadokawa, is giving fans hope that there won’t be too lengthy of a gap between seasons.
The second season will premiere in April 2022, during the spring season for anime that year. A potential release window for Season 3 of The Rising of the Shield Hero is Fall 2022 or Winter 2023. While technically a different season, the third season functions similarly to a split-court anime season.
In regards to Season 4 of The Rising Of The Shield Hero, Tamura has stated that he “would like to animate all of Shield Hero,” but that this is contingent on the show’s popularity.
Certainly with the continuous support of everyone… The show’s success in international markets, particularly the United States and China, has beyond my wildest dreams. I want to thank everyone who has watched the show,” Tamura remarked at the beginning of 2019.
The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 3 English dub Release Date
Season 3 of The Rising of the Shield Hero in English dub on Crunchyroll has not yet been confirmed. Prior to the dubbing process delay, new episodes of Shield Hero were published in the English dub on the same day as they aired in Japan. The English dub of Shield Hero Season 2 also arrived after the series’ first broadcast.
The Shield Hero Season 3 Simuldub, we hope, will continue to air on the same day as the Japanese broadcast.
For Season 2, the dub of The Shield Hero was available in a number of languages, including English, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, and Russian.
What Is The Plot Of The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 3?
The second season of the anime will adapt the Spirit Turtle Arc from volumes 6 and 7 of the light novel, or chapters 45 through 62 of the manga. We don’t know which volumes will be adapted for the third season, but we’ll tell you about the second season so you know – roughly – what to anticipate from the third.
After fighting alien heroes, the heroes realize they must get stronger. Naofumi uses Melromarc’s stockpile to power up, and Queen Mirella trains the four heroes. Eclair Seaetto, a swordswoman who leads Raphtalia’s hamlet, and Elrasla Grilaroc, the last Hengen Muso fighter, meet the heroes.
Despite these fighting advisors proving successful and Eclair defeating Ren in a duel, Ren, Itsuki, and Motoyasu forgo training. Naofumi’s team learns about Hengen Muso, notably Rishia. The queen lets the heroes skip training provided they investigate suspicious incidents throughout the world.
The queen orders Naofumi’s crew to examine these rumors. In Lerno, they locate parasitic Familiars. Naofumi’s squad defeats the Familiars, but Keel is almost possessed. Melromarc’s shadows have gathered enough information to determine that the rampaging beast is a Guardian Beast called the Spirit Turtle and that the monsters destroying the planet are its familiars. Naofumi and his companions hurry east to find the spirit turtle. Naofumi sees the eastern land completely devastated. The three other heroes have vanished. Naofumi, Raphtalia, Filo, Eclair, and Hengen Muso assault Dame to stop Spirit Tortoise.
After a fight, the defenders decapitate the Spirit Tortoise. They locate a temple warning about the Spirit Tortoise as they mount on its back. Naofumi searches for lost heroes and the ghost turtle.
Ost claims to know the Ghost Turtle as Naofumi and his squad combat remaining familiars. She says the Guardian Beast isn’t dead and has been corrupted. They soon learn that the Ghost Turtle has regenerated into a terrible form and is headed for Melromarc.
Naofumi’s party tries to kill or delay the Spirit Tortoise but fails. Vitoria joins the fight. She promises to combat the Spirit Tortoise’s primary body while Naofumi and others enter. To vanquish the Spirit Tortoise, they must destroy its head and heart.
After a botched attempt and a terrible effort, they destroy the head and seal the heart to kill the Spirit Tortoise. Naofumi and his friends investigate who corrupted and exploited the Spirit Tortoise.
When they enter the core room, they discover three heroes captive and Kyo siphoning the Spirit Turtle’s energy. L’Arc, Therese, and Glass help defeat Kyo when he looks unbeatable. Both parties combat the minion book bearer.
The heroes only fight Kyo and destroy the Spirit Tortoise core because Ost lets Naofumi unleash Liberation-class magic and Rishia possesses secret powers. Kyo flees via a portal with the Spirit Turtle’s remaining energy. With the Spirit Tortoise’s center shattered, Ost fades.
She requests Naofumi’s squad to return the Spirit Tortoise’s energy to her realm. If they succeed, they’ll delay the following wave. Ost offers Naofumi the ability to move between realms as a final gift. Naofumi, his gang, and L’Arc’s group aim to catch Kyo after her death.
The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 3 Cast
The same announcement that said the second season would come out in October 2021 (later changed to November 2021) also said that the cast from the first season would be back for the second season. We also found out that Masato Jinbo, not Takao Abo, would be in charge of the second season. Keigo Koyanagi would be in charge of writing the series once more. Masahiro Suwa was confirmed to be the main artist for the original designs of Seira Minami’s characters, and Kevin Penkin would be back to write the music.
Now, this doesn’t have to mean anything for the third season, but we don’t see why the cast would change. The crew might change along the way, but we’ll talk more about that later.
