Summer 2019 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
Summer is near, my dear friends, and our tablets and phones will need some extra space for all the amazing anime that are coming our way.
The anime adaptation of light novel The Rising of the Shield Hero has announced that it will start airing on Japanese TV in January 2019! The series will also be available simultaneously both subbed and dubbed on Crunchyroll for overseas fans.
This good news was accompanied by a new trailer that shows off the voices of the characters. Of course, we have linked it for you below. If you haven’t met the characters of this series yet, take a look at the character introduction we did last month here:
The very ordinary otaku university student Naofumi Iwatani finds a book in the library that summons him into an alternate world. He receives a mission as ‘hero of the shield’, who is one of four heroes, the others being sword, spear, and bow. Their mission is to shake off the disaster called ‘Wave’ that brings chaos to the world. Naofumi is excited about this great adventure and begins his journey with his fellow comrades.
However, he is betrayed after some days and loses money and his position, simply everything. Just when he thinks he can’t trust anybody else anymore, he meets the slave Raphtalia, employs her, and together they try to stand against the ‘wave’ and the world.
Will they be able to overcome this hopeless situation? This is a heroic fantasy story, showing how Naofumi rises again from the bottom.
