    based off first episode
    i enjoyed the first episode and will be using this show to help satisfy my ever growing thirst for moar isekai.!!
    The changes in the protagonists character are sudden but feel realistic i guess. The only thing that felt wrong about the episode is how every single person in town and even his new comrades that call themselves "gamers" don't understand that they're gonna need a good solid tank ...

    Fantastic, i'm so glad this is getting an anime adaptation.
    I can't stress this enough go and read the manga, it's such an intense 50 chapters that are nowhere near finished, if it can be that moving and gripping in page form, I have the highest hopes for the anime there is nothing like this out there currently, not too goofy like Konosuba and yet not too dark like goblin slayer, it's a perfect in-between.

    Better than most anime in four episodes.
    As of writing this there are only four episodes. I honestly feel refreshed when I see a good anime, and this is already showing signs of being so when it can get so much done in four episodes when most anime struggle to do so in 20-30. From the start I feel that the Hero is genuinely at a disadvantage, which is rarely done right in most anime, and from what I can tell, that's the whole point. ...

    How to do an isekai right...
    The Rising of the shield hero follows Naofumi, one of the four great heroes summoned to another world. Basically the most isekai isekai that was ever made into an isekai. I'm not too sure why I enjoyed this anime so much, possibly because Naofumi isn't put on a god-like pedestal and is instead this "Criminal" and is treated poorly. This anime is like Sword Art Online (Yeah, that one...) ...

    Need more shows like it.
    Really enjoyed and although over 40 mins long it flew by and ended far too soon. Looking forward to how it progresses. Quite a dark theme develops quickly which I think draws you in. Has the same sort of feel to it as Re:Zero which in my opinion kept you wanting more each episode.

    Philo is the best!!!!!!!!!
    All the characters are the best but I like Philo the most she is so cute and so adorable I can't wait to see her at her final form.
    Also the main character is a boss he is soo cool the way he is kind but also a savage.

    This is a fabulous anime!!!!
    carry on the episodes I cant wait for season 2.
    I loved how the first episode was 40 minutes long because it had a detailed description of what was happening.This is a one of a kind anime.Main characters feelings at the start had a drastic change and he trusted no body.(he is my favourite character)
