I've been critically reviewing fandoms and geek culture for eight years. After spending four years of college focusing on literary analysis, I now apply that passion to my hobbies and love for the geekdom.

The Rising of the Shield Hero started as a light novel written by Aneko Yusagi in 2017. As an anime, it made its original run in January of this year, 2019. Since it’s release, it has picked up in popularity, and with good reason.

Iwatani Naofumi, a run-of-the-mill otaku, finds a book in the library that summons him to another world. Where he finds himself joining the sword, spear, and bow as one of the Four Cardinal Heroes fighting the Waves of Catastrophe. He being the Shield Hero of the group (as per the title of the series). Excited for his future ventures, just a few days later, he is betrayed. Majorly. Immediately he loses all his money, dignity, and respect. Because he can trust no one, he employs a slave named Raphtalia and together they survive best they can with a reputation as tarnished as Iwatani Naofumi can get.

Synopsis
