Join us for new episodes every week as the series airs!
The wait is over—starting in one hour, you can watch the official dub of The Rising of the Shield Hero!
Join Naofumi as he fights his way through a mysterious and unfriendly world, accompanied by Raphtalia and his magic shield (and the occasional chompy balloon). All five episodes that have currently aired will be coming out today, with future episodes available alongside the subtitled release!
We're also pleased to introduce our dub cast:
Starring as Naofumi Iwatani, the Shield Hero himself, is Billy Kametz. You may have heard Billy as Josuke in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable, or as Metal Lee in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.
And playing Raphtalia is Erica Mendez! Erica can be heard as Megumin in KonoSuba - God's blessing on this wonderful world! and Ryuuko Matoi in Kill la Kill.
Going forward, new dubbed episodes will be released the same day as the subtitled simulcast—so you can get your Shield Hero fix whichever way you prefer! For today, we will be launching episodes 1-6 dubbed starting at 1pm PT, with new episodes coming out 15 minutes apart.
