    A Great Start to the Series
    I became a fan of the series when I started reading the manga adaptation of the novels, and was thoroughly impressed by both the manga and the first episode of this anime adaptation. I like isekai as a genre, but at the same time I'm disappointed with the number of isekai's that are more poorly written (your "In Another World with my Smartphone"s and the like). My two favorite ways to handle ...

    cried when i saw it finally on cr
    naofumi literally redefined my life in the light novel, such a great character with a great story. i've watched many isekais and this is my favourite and probably the best in the genre. the female characters are eh, as u'd expect in isekais (yeah it's kinda a harem anime) but they're much more rounded than usual. naofumi never betrays his motto of 'fk u' which is honestly the best design.

    I usually don't rate series based on first episodes
    I will update the review at the end of the series.

    Much like School-life Comedy/Romance was the most popular genre among Anime adapted from light novels of the 2000s, issekai has become the dominant genre of 2010s. Each story is crafted with a main character summoned to another world, which usually resembles an MMO or is an MMO, and each story has their own stick to differentiate them from what ...

    An Isekai that challenges reinvention
    This is a very interesting start. Just like "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime", this one takes a spin on the trope. There is this man, who isn't anti-social, but just a nobody; perfect for Isekai.

    Opening a book, he is summoned along with 3 others. The only problem is that he is the butt monkey, having a shield and not allowed to use a weapon. The other 3 have their weapons, but are ...

    Aninenewsnetwork -_-
    Amazing 1st episode. Kids these days are so butt hurt over every little thing. It's very simple, like Goblin Slayer, if you are overly sensitive and offended, dont watch it. Certain anime is not for everyone. Acting like a bunch of snob who complaining about degrading women on a fictional dark fantasy anime is just completely stupid. As for people with open mind, watch it.

    an amazing isekai anime that is worth watching
    honestly with every isekai anime i tend to go into them expecting the worst since alot of them usually follow the format where the MC is op af and has a huge harem of girls however with this one it's different. The MC at first was living a good life until he was betrayed and lost everything and to top things off he has the "weakest" legendary item out of the 4 legendary heroes. looking forward to ...

    Promising Isekai Anime
    The Rising of the Shield Hero looks to be a very promising isekai anime, great animation and sound. The first episode had a slow pace, but it captured the "downfall" of the hero perfectly. I am excited to see how the MC will get over the hurdles currently obstructing his way.

    nearly as good as that time I got reincarnated as a slime
    This, so far, managed to have good twists and plot points that did not feel to obvious, it has amazing and simple world building, and manages to keep the edgy main character, while giving them a good personality as well. the animation and sound are really well done, the bits and pieces of 3d animation are hard to pick up on. it gets nearly full marks in almost every way you can judge an anime. as ...

    As long as they follow the manga plot it should be good.
    I have been following the manga of this anime adaption and as long as they follow the manga plot, which they should they have enough content for at least one season, then I think most people will find this one to be about as good as That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime.

    Thrilling Isekai that puts on a fresh take.
    I love this show because of how fresh the story is. Summoned to another world? Only a million of those done already, but to be hated by everyone and treated like crap despite being taken from your home? Each episode leaves you begging to know what will happen next! What will the hero rise up, or will he fall to his inner demons? I am anxiously waiting for another season.
