So it looks like we’re back in this hellhole, The Rising of the Shield Hero, huh? Anyway, Naofumi Iwatani and his allies defeated the Divine Turtle, but Kyo Ethnina cursed him, Raphtalia, and Filo. God, he gave a nasty parting gift to the Shield Hero!
Later, Queen Mirelia Q. Melromarc gave Naofumi bad news because not only were the three heroes missing, but the Faubley Kingdom was also closing its doors towards Melromarc. On top of that, there is a potential threat related to Phoenix as it will be the next monster that will terrorize everything just like the Divine Turtle. On the other hand, Queen Mirelia has some clues about the Seven Star Heroes where she found a certain Staff Hero…
It is… Trashcan, formerly known as Aultcray Melromarc. God, I can’t believe he’s one of the Seven Heroes!
Even Naofumi Iwatani couldn’t believe it. Sadly, Trash can’t tell Naofumi and Queen Mirelia about the rest of the Seven Heroes because he either doesn’t know about their existence or he refuses to reveal the secret.
Now, Naofumi and his allies have gone to Old Man Elhart, where he asks the blacksmith to modify his equipment from the other world so Naofumi and the rest can use them here.
In addition, Naofumi also invited Elhart to establish a blacksmith shop in his village, something the old blacksmith would have thought of. Either way, Elhart would do something to make their device work in this world.
Now is the time to buy some slaves but unfortunately, the slave trader told Naofumi that most demi-humans are bought in bulk in Zeltoble.
So they went to Zeltoble where Naofumi and his allies would try to get those demi-humans on his side, even if the Shield Hero would have to pay a lot of money.
On the other hand, it seems there is another slave trader waiting for Naofumi Iwatani. Is this a case of a slave trader similar to Nurse Joy in Pokemon?
Anyway, the slave trader takes Naofumi to a secret room where a black market auction is taking place.
Oh yeah, and most of the demihumans they introduced were from Lurolona Village, although Raphtalia knew that some of them weren’t from that village.
So what about the demihumans in Lurolona Village? Well, it turns out that it is a brand that is being associated with the Shield Hero.
However, Naofumi Iwatani cannot ignore this because he needs to earn some money to buy them. That’s where the slave trader told him about another attraction in Zeltoble.
There’s also the underground arena where it’s a no-holds-barred slugfest with the biggest payouts. Anyway, tonight’s fight features a noble man named Yuji facing off against Fohl, a demi-human tiger.
While Fohl could have defeated Yuji at any time, the demi-human had his hands tied behind his back when he was ordered to settle the match in favor of the nobles.
But yes, Fohl lost the match to Yuji, even though the demi-human was paid to set up the match. Man, if only Naofumi would take Fohl under his wing.
Speaking of Naofumi Iwatani, it seems he met a spectator named Sadina who was enjoying the battles while drinking a nice beer. I wonder if Naofumi will confront Sadina later?
Anyway, Naofumi Iwatani and his allies decide to enter the underground arena while hiding their identities.
They may appear weak, but Naofumi, Raphtalia, and Filo are not people to be bullied as they only control a group of thugs.
With that said, I hope that season 3 of The Rising of the Shield Hero will be better than season 2.
Now, we’ve already covered Kyo Ethnina and the bullshit tricks he pulled in the Magic Turtle arc, so I hope something interesting happens next episode!
