    Really liked the anime
    This is became quickly one of my favs.
    A great mix and a story which didn't let met stop watching.
    Kind of SAO vibes but in another setting following more like the underdog and not the overpowered alph.
    Guess from now i have to wait every new one ... oof
    But it will be worth it !

    Worth a Watch ..i need to add more characters... lol
    Generic popular story, "loser gets killed/sent etc to a "gaming world"
    but this one is pretty good.

    Story is a bit fast, but compared to other anime in the same genre like .. Re:zero, Grimgar, its not a bad thing, and there are actually 4 protagonists "story wise" but you will learn to hate the other 3 guys

    The best anime of 2019
    Amazing characters, amazing development, you really feel attached to all of the characters and you can really connect with what the main character is going through, the plot is superb and every episode is just getting better than the last, this is hands down the BEST anime of 2019.

    Definitely worth watching
    The Rising of the Shield Hero is a story that immediately catches you from the start by the way it handles it's main character, his companions and their growth as they are forced to face the waves, their past, discrimination, injustices, and many other issues brought up to them by the corrupt members of the royal family, the country and the world that surrounds them, that together with the fairly ...

    My Favorite Isekai to Date
    The Rising of the Shield Hero immediately sets itself apart with its 1st episode by presenting a world that’s unlike others found in the Isekai genre. While most Isekai generally feature a world on the brink of destruction and/or in need of salvation, Shield Hero takes things in a dark direction, choosing to use a false rape accusation as the catalyst to our hero’s tale. Not dark enough yet, the ...

    I can say with every fiber of my being that this is GOOOD!
    I love fantasy in general but one thing that always bothers me is how the protagonists are always given the straight shot to being a hero. In this story, our main character is ignorant at first and gets taken advantage of - leaving him distrusted and hated by everyone. It really makes for a good story when everyone is against him, including those he's meant to protect from some huge evil.

    shieldy boi best boi
    is it different from the manga/light novels? yes
    is it as good as the manga/light novels? no
    even so it still gets a 4/5 novel gets a 9/10
    this is the only show that has ever made me hate a villain
    (if you've watch or read TROTSH at all you know who I mean)

    characters develop over time which usually doesn't happen in isekai's

    this is probably the only show to ever rival Overlord for top ...

    I am in love with this show
    Before watching this anime, I had no idea what this show was about nor exactly what genre it was, but I gave it a shot and wow I got sucked in right away! I just had to write a review for Shield Hero. I never called myself a big fan of isekai / "real life person gets transported into a video game world" -type anime, but I loved how different it is compared to the others. I think this show does a ...

    A Fantasy Anime. Emphasis on the Anime.
    I can see several downsides for this anime such as its blatant "Good guy that can do nothing wrong" archetype being portrayed or how the main character can pass through every obstacle with an inch of his life while still doing justice.

    However, and don't get me wrong this may be the biggest turn off for people who expected a rougher story than you anticipated, However, I still believe this is ...
