Fans Are Raving About The Newest Party Member in Shield Hero Episode 5

After the emotional rollercoaster of last week’s episode, this week’s episode had everything needed to recover and so much more.


If you’re not completely caught up on The Rising of the Shield Hero, please shield your eyes.

Hello! Where have you been? 

Motoyasu, you good?

Alright fine, the real reason we're here: FILO!

OOOO right! This version of Filo:

Overall, it seems everyone needed this episode:
