The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Release date
The 25-episode first season of The Rising of the Shield Hero aired from January 9, 2019 to June 26, 2019. The sequel is The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 which will be a direct sequel to the events of the first season.
On July 8, 2021, it was announced that The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 will be delayed to April 2022. As a reminder, it was initially planned to be broadcasted in October 2021.
It’s a huge deception, because it is certainly the most anticipated project of the moment, with an extremely successful first season which had won over thousands of people around the world. However, it could be a bad for a good, rather than having a shoddy project, one will enjoy better constructed and better-animated episodes.
The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Trailer
Two small videos of a few seconds were released, in order to announce The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 which is in production. A few months before its official delivery, the next much longer trailers should appear on the web. Below, you can find the first teaser, as well as a short trailer for Crunchyroll.
The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 3 already confirmed?
While The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 has not yet been officially released in Japan, a third season has already been confirmed. Obviously, it is too early to have precise information on the number of episodes or on the release date (especially since the second season has just been postponed). What is certain is that the sequel has been confirmed, and that we are sure to have a faithful anime adaptation by the studio.
