The Rising of the Shield Hero Trailer Teases Naofumi's Season 2 Challenges

By Nick Valdez
The Rising of the Shield Hero is setting up some major challenges for Naofumi Iwatani and his party in the second season, and showed off some of what fans can expect to see with its newest trailer! The first season of the series was a major hit with fans around the world, and thus it was no real surprise to find out that a second season (and even a third) was on the way. It’s been quite a long wait for the new episodes, however, as the second season was originally scheduled to release last Fall before its delay to the Spring 2022 anime schedule
With the second season airing in Japan (and streaming with Crunchyroll) this April, The Rising of the Shield Hero has released the first full trailer for the new episodes. Previous promotional materials teased unexpected additions to Naofumi’s party and some wild new missions like taking on a giant turtle, but the trailer has shown fans a taste of just how much more intense this set up actually will be for Naofumi going forward. Fans saw him make some major strides in the first season, but it might not be enough. You can check out the newest trailer below: 
The first season introduced an interesting twist on the Isekai genre that seems to pit different Isekai protagonists against one another as Naofumi learns more about the true nature and trouble with the waves. But that’s something we can look forward to seeing explored further in the new season! If you wanted to catch up with the series before the new season hits, you can now find the first season of The Rising of the Shield Hero is streaming with Crunchyroll. They officially describe the series as such:
“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?”
