1 Article

The Rising of the Shield Hero follows Naofumi Iwatani, a 20-year-old university student who finds a book about Four Heroes and is whisked away to a fantasy game-like realm of monsters and magic.

Iwatani is chosen as one of these four and given the Shield Hero’s mantle. The other three were young males summoned from worlds similar to Iwatani’s, but he got the short end of the stick.

Only one woman joined his party because he was the least charismatic, and she soon betrayed him and falsely accused him of rape! Now, the jaded Iwatani must find a way to survive in a new and dangerous world that despises him.
