At the start of first episode of The Rising of the Shield Hero, we see a young man and a small girl in a misty, mountainous land. It looks like they are playing with a ball. Who are they and where are they?

1

A young man wakes up in his bedroom. He must have been dreaming.

2

He says that while he is an otaku, he’s not a “shut-in.” When he needs something, he’s more than ready to venture out in the world. He walks to the local library.

3

Books fall from the shelves. As he picks them back up, one catches his eye: “The Records of the Four Cardinal Weapons.”

4

He flips through the novel and skims through the story. But wait! Half of the book is blank, and it starts to glow! There’s so much light now! What is going on?

5

6

The next thing he knows, he’s on the ground in what seems to be a stone castle. A group of priests are excited that their “summoning worked.”

There are three other guys around the same age as him. The priests let them know that they are the four heroes that legends have told about.

8

The other guys immediately start acting the part as a hero. They accept their mission, but demand a reward. They are so comfortable with their new reality already! Our protagonist looks outside the castle and sees a magical kingdom.

9

Each of the four heroes has his own unique weapon. Our protagonist can’t remove his shield. They are introduced to the king of the land.

King of Melromarc, Aultcray Melromarc XXXII.

11

One hero is Amaki Ren.

12

The second hero is Kitamura Motoyasu.

13.png

The third hero is Kawasumi Itsuki.

14.png

Our shield hero is ignored by the king.

15

The shield hero is Iwatani Naofumi, a twenty-year-old college student.

16.png

The king explains how four waves are coming. The first already came, and they underestimated it. Only the four heroes can defeat the waves and save the kingdom.

17

The heroes notice that they have Magic Status and stats!

18

But the four heroes can’t work together. Their weapons supposedly repel each other’s and inhibit experience growth.

19.png

The heroes all realize that they are from a different version of Japan.

20

And our shield hero realizes that the defense hero is normally known as the weakest.

21

The king has gathered brave warriors to aide the heroes. The warriors are allowed to choose which hero they want to accompany.

22.png

None of the warriors choose Naofumi…

23

It’s because word spread around the kingdom that the shield hero didn’t know anything about their land.

24

A very attractive girl agrees to help Naofumi.

25.png

The three heroes receive 600 coins, but because Naofumi only has one partner, he gets to receive 800 coins.

26

The attractive girl is Myne Suphia.

27

Myne takes Naofumi to the best weaponry shop she knows.

 

29

Naofumi tries out a few of the swords, but each one he touches zaps him! He can’t wield a sword, because he is the shield hero. He must play only on defense, for the most part.

30

The shop owner can tell that his shield has power, but can’t identify how much.

31.png

They buy Naofumi some armor, but Myne asks the shop owner how much he would pay to buy it back. Strange?

32

Naofumi trains out in the field against low-power monsters.

33

Naofumi can feed his shield items.

34.png

Myne talks Naofumi into buying her amor, which is four times the price of Naofumi’s!

35

The two eat out at a pub. Myne tries to persuade Naofumi to drinking wine with her, but he refuses and goes straight to bed.

36

 

Naofumi wakes up the next morning and finds all of his money and armor have been stolen!

38.png

He rushes out to the hallway. The king’s men are waiting for him and demand that he come to the king’s court.

39

Oh no!

40.png

Myne has lied to the whole kingdom that Naofumi tried to do inappropriate things to her! How could she!

41

42

Alone and exiled, Naofumi just wants to go back to his world. The king informs him that new heroes can’t be summoned until all four heroes die. But the king assures the heroes that they can go home after they defeat the waves.

43.png

What will Naofumi do now?

44

The shop owner shows sympathy towards Naofumi. Naofumi, now realizing that he’s on his own, changes to a more serious personality. He knows what he needs to do to survive.

45

Naofumi trains on his own.

46.png

And demands fair treatment from prejudiced shop owners.

47.png

Naofumi begins making money by selling herbs and rare plants to a medicinal shop owner.

48

49.png

A gang of goons request to “join” Naofumi party.

50.png

They try to steal from him, but Naofumi can defend himself now.

51

Walking in a dark alley, a mysterious man pops out and talks to Naofumi.

52.png

He tells Naofumi that he has what he needs.

53.png

The mysterious man is a slave seller, and asks Naofumi to buy one of his.

54

Naofumi buys a demi-human, which is half racoon, but is also the weakest slave for sale.
