The Rising of the Shield Hero (Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari) (Season 1-2) 1080p Dual Audio HEVC. The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 13 English Subbed.
In the world of isekai anime, where protagonists often effortlessly rise to power, “Rising of The Shield Hero” stands out for its divisive narrative. The story centers on Naofumi Iwatani, who, unlike his fellow heroes, faces adversity from the start. Accused of a heinous crime and betrayed by his first companion, Naofumi becomes an outcast tasked with saving a kingdom from a magical apocalypse. The controversy arises from his decision to purchase a child slave, Raphtalia, to aid him on his quest.
The anime has been both praised and criticized for its handling of sensitive topics, such as false accusations and slavery. While some laud it for subverting isekai norms and presenting a unique dramatic hook, others condemn it for potentially perpetuating harmful narratives. The complex relationship between Naofumi and his “slave daughters,” Raphtalia and later Filo, is a focal point, with the story attempting to balance emotional moments with uncomfortable themes. Despite glaring writing flaws, the anime manages to engage viewers through its portrayal of Naofumi’s struggle for redemption and the dynamic between the characters, albeit in a polarizing manner.
