So are you excited for the 2nd season of Rising Of the Shield Hero? Well, we have got some exciting news for you all. The original cast for the anime will remain the same!!!
Here are all the updates that fans should know.
Officially renewed for another season!!
When the anime got fame in its 1st season, it was not only happiness but also shock which Junichiro Tamura felt. We saw the 1st season back in 2019 and have been waiting for another season.
For now, we do know that the series has been renewed for another season, but we do not have an official date.
The renewal status was announced back in 2019 itself, thanks to the popularity of the 1st season. Not only that, but the creators also announced in the Crunchyroll Expo that there would be 2 more seasons!!
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we cannot tell for sure when the next season will release.
However, fans are expecting a late 2020 or an early 2021 release. We do hope that the 2nd season premieres soon, as we want to know the story.
The cast for the 2nd season
Fans, rejoice as the director of the show, Junichiro Tamura has stated that the original cast will remain in the series. It means that we would be able to see Naofumi, Filo and Rapthalia in the 2nd season as well.
However, we can expect some new enemies in the new season. Who are they? Only time will let us know.
What will be the story for the 2nd season?
The story of the anime revolves around a teen called Naofumi, who is appointed to remove the alien species from Earth. To join him, there are two other teens, Filo and Rapthalia, and together they are on a mission.
Moreover, the story is based on a book of the same name, written by Aneko Yusagi. The book has 25 volumes, which means there are lots of material.
In the second season, we can expect more adventures. As the director stated, Rapthalia is going to remain a constant character in the series, and the teens may even separate at some point. Why would they separate? We need to wait to know the answers.
