UPDATE 12/10/21: Added the English subtitled version of the trailer to the article.
Is the wait for The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 getting any easier? Probably not, but at least we've been able to check out the occasional character trailer to get us back in the zone for the upcoming sequel. We previously got a look back at Naofumi and Raphtalia, and now a new promo is here to focus on Filo.
Crunchyroll will simulcast The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 as it airs in Japan in April 2022. Here's a quick synopsis summing up the first:
Iwatani Naofumi, a run-of-the-mill otaku, finds a book in the library that summons him to another world. He is tasked with joining the sword, spear, and bow as one of the Four Cardinal Heroes and fighting the Waves of Catastrophe as the Shield Hero.
Excited by the prospect of a grand adventure, Naofumi sets off with his party. However, merely a few days later, he is betrayed and loses all his money, dignity, and respect. Unable to trust anyone anymore, he employs a slave named Raphtalia and takes on the Waves and the world.
But will he really find a way to overturn this desperate situation?
