The Rising of the Shield Hero season 2: plot expectation
Season one followed Naofumi as he began his journey as a shield hero. Unlike his companion heroes, who grew up in extravagant homes, Naofumi had to face adversities since his childhood. Facing obstacles even in the parallel world isn’t something new for our shield hero. Due to past traumas, Naofumi only trusts himself.
Fortunately, toward the end of season one, Naofumi is not left alone. He finds true friendship and becomes a powerful hero. The season one finale revealed the existence of stronger heroes who will offer tough competition.
In season two, we will probably see Naofumi honing his skills to become stronger and protect this world. Additionally, Season 2 will dive deeper into the secrets of the book that Naofumi had originally found before he was transported to another world.
We will see Naofumi meet exciting new characters in his journey ahead. Furthermore, we will see the king in a courtroom and plunge into this character’s story. We will also see Raphtalia and Filo bond over their past and share a moment of friendship.
