Like many fans, I was critical of the start of this second season (see Why is Shield Hero Season 2 So Bad). However, re-isekai-ing Naofumi and his group has given the series something of a reset at a great time.

Episode 7 was very good, at least in comparison to what’s come before. With Naofumi and everyone else’s levels reset in the new world, it feels more like the series we enjoyed at the very beginning of season 1, with some added gloss.

The new Hunting Hero is an interesting character and has good chemistry with Naofumi. I’m excited to see how they explore the new world with fresh eyes and plenty of challenges along the way.

What will they encounter in this new world? Watch The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 to find out what happens next!
