They have been summoned to defend the kingdom from the Waves, which are hordes of demons. However, early on Naofumi is accused of rape and is defamed. Thus, he becomes skeptical and does not trust anyone.
He purchases companions from a slave trader. The two companions, Raphtalia and Filo, are demi-humans. He trains to grow stronger and eventually wins the trust of the locals.
The first season is just the origin story of the Shield Hero. The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 should cover:
- Devil of the Shield Arc
- Spirit Turtle Arc
- Fallen Heroes Arc
- Otherworld Arc
All of these arcs are from the light novel and web novel series. However, there is a high possibility that the anime may take a different direction. So far there are two separate canons to the series. The light novel and web novel both differ drastically in their canon.
Viewers may see either some combined arcs or entirely new original anime arcs. This leaves us with many speculations. If you are interested in more of the Rising of the Shield Hero leaks check out this article.
