The new season is directed by Hitoshi Haga. Its new opening theme song is titled “SIN” and performed by MADKID.

The original light novel series and its manga adaptation are both published in America by One Peace Books. The publisher gave this description for the first novel:

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!

Who’s looking forward to The Rising of the Shield Hero season 3?
