Synopsis:

Naofumi Iwatani, an uncharismatic Otaku who spends his days on games and manga, suddenly finds himself summoned to a parallel universe! He discovers he is one of four heroes equipped with legendary weapons and tasked with saving the world from its prophesied destruction. As the Shield Hero, the weakest of the heroes, all is not as it seems. Naofumi is soon alone, penniless, and betrayed. With no one to turn to, and nowhere to run, he is left with only his shield. Now, Naofumi must rise to become the legendary Shield Hero and save the world!

 

Crunchyroll announced this would be a same day Simuldub, only to say it had been delayed last minute, claim they would give users an update soon, and four weeks later no word has been given on the status of the dub.

 

UPDATE: As of episode 6,C CR premiered all episodes 1-6 in English dub and have stated going forward the dub should release weekly on same day as the simulcast, but it's unknown if it'll be simultaneous or later in the day.

Crunchyroll finally put up the dub for The Rising of the Shield Hero yesterday and I binged the 6 episodes that have aired. Going forward they claim it'll be same-day English dub as the simulcast.

Show seems great so far. Good thing the SJW's didn't get it killed off. They went after this show this season because "a woman in the show falsely accuses the MC of rape" and Goblin Slayer last season because "goblin rape".

Going to be tough deciding Anime of the Season between The Rising of the Shield Hero and The Promised Neverland at this current time imo.

The Dub is quite good.  The English version is good, if you ignore the lips sometime :) 

 

I relly like this anime and with the english dub, its even better.

I definitely didn't notice it though. So dubs were pretty good, yes it's infact much better. Glad I didn't start sub.

It's a bit of a shame, the pace that is. There's a lot going on behind the scenes in the LN that fleshes out the story, especially concerning the mc and his autistic relationships that makes him seem a lot more real. He's an okay guy, but not one to cross. When standard channels aren't available, he doesn't mind underhanded dealings, but he's dependable to those who aren't douchebags. Spare some love for tanuki-chan, especially since she had such a severe oppai-reduction from the manga.

Awesome show.. That's all I can say

Infact there are no words to actually describe it.

Its going to run for 25 eps and am going to enjoy every bit of it.

Definitely one of the best anime made this year so far.

I'm liking this show far more than I expected. Definitely more than Slime at this current point too. One gripe though is the bird. Did they really have to make it transform into a loli? Should have just left that part out and kept it as a big carriage pulling bird.

Ya..😂😂😂

 

As a matter of fact they even have a scene where the MC (naofumi) points out the same thing( out of context) and the shop owner points out how he is attracted by such creatures.

I guess its part of the animes charm, I for one loved it, at first I was hoping that the egg hatch into a dragon since that was supposed  to be a ultimate prize, but it turns out that hatching a queen is also a rare thing as well they are considered as the strongest and most loyal companions. And transformation is part of their disguise, I wished it transformed into blonde woman instead of a child but maybe she'll grow as she levels up just like the racoon- girl rhapthalia.

Lets wait and watch

Seeing the hype and all, this is going to be the AoTS ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Overall it is okay but not as great people say. I didn't like the fact that shield hero is ridiculed for apparently no reason or at least I can't find one. If the reason is he being a shield hero and to gain viewer empathy then it's lame. If there is no reason or a lame reason then this is also a generic Issekai title. First episodes were good but lately it's just another boring Issekai driven plot and adding lolis and moe stuff to attract the audience.

yeah the anime did this terribly, i read the LN when they were first being translated and such (have since not been able to read them so no idea about 100% of my info) but if i remember correctly they hate him for simply being the shield hero. Their mentality is more or less a "Hero" is suppose to be badass and kick ass, how can he do that with a shield? So they hate him. IMO it gets much better when the Queen shows up. Hopefully it doesnt continue this downward descent its on.

It kind of feels like the anime has been getting weaker the last few episodes. I don't know if it's the pacing or something else, but I feel like it doesn't have any tension compared to the manga or LN.
