The Rising of the Shield Hero Ties Up Second, Third Seasons

Good news for fans of The Rising of the Shield Hero: you’ve got a lot more anime to look forward to.

That’s the word out of Crunchyroll Expo, where it was announced the series will get both a second and third season.

The crunchy folks also revealed a visual, and the following tease about what’s coming up:

“As Naofumi, Raphtalia and Filo are getting new companions, they’re also encountering a new enemy. Learn more about the huge turtle carrying a town on its back, and how the Shield Hero and his team will be fighting along their journey.”

The first season of The Rising of the Shield Hero was directed by Takao Abo at Kinema Citrus, and aired/streamed between January to June. It’s based on a series of light novels by Aneko Yusagi.
