A Review by DallasBob

This animation **_The Rising of the Shield Hero_** (_Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari_) is in the isekai genre; meaning modern day person transported (usually by magic) to another plain of reality or another world; typically fantasy based. This series is exceptionally good. While there is some liberal based ideas in the series, there isn't a saturation to point of poisoning the audience or putting off the fan base. The development of the protagonists throughout the series is pretty good and reminded me a lot of another isekai anime called _**Log Horizon**_. Though instead of following a dozen characters, this anime follows five to six to include the main protagonist, the Shield Hero. I wish I could go into detail on how well this series was written but I would mainly be repeating myself. The pacing, character development, drama, and trauma of all the characters is spot on, and the consistency is flawless. You will not be wasting your time watching this series; it is well worth a look-see. 9.5 out of 10 stars, simply because I like a little more fan service to my anime. Ex. **_Yuuna and the Haunted Bath House_** lol

I would say this anime show is great, but the most cringe part is that daughter of " Melromarc Malty S" let Iwatani Naofumi's friends blaming on him that he r**pe Malty aka "Bitch" but, it was a lied Naofumi never do that he wanted a team mate to partnership able like but, Naofumi have to buy a salve's that he meet up with Raphtalia.
