Recap at the end during where the scene happens (naturally) they say that Raph at least got one smooch in
Yes indeed, in the case of the shield hero it was a novel first then became a manga then became an anime, as for link you can just go about anywhere on the internet to read the manga, personally I use tachiyomi Wich is basically a mobile app that downloads and reads manga with the latest chapters and has multiple sources so I recommend that one, you can download it from Google simply by searching tachiyomi
Here's the link https://tachiyomi.org/
If you however would not like to download the app, as i said before you can just look up the manga or the novel where ever u want, i dunno about other animes or mangas but I think rising of the shield hero is one of few mangas who originated from novels, the others all were started as mangas then got adapted to animes hope i was helpful
" Wow, look at that blush! Naofumi and Raphtalia get interrupted by Filo and... everyone?! Wow, way to ruin the moment! At least they got one smooch in. "
say that again...I dare you...;)
I would suggest amazon. Its where I got all 13 volumes that are currently out. They're pretty lengthy. But they're (mostly) fantastic. I found 1-7 to be really fun and great reads. 8-10 I got very bored of and trudged through. But 11-13 is even better than the beginning and blew my mind.

Adding LEDs is dead simple. you could even just get something like this LEDwire kit bundle up one in the center and use the others to outline some highlights to really make it pop, and all of the electronics is already done for you, you just need to put the light wires where you want and press a button.

I have yet to purchase this, but the questions they ask for (measurements), the fact they have a varying price based on quality, they claim to make it out of leather, includes storage for reduction of glue and leather smell, etc, gives me the impression they are legit, and of high quality. Check it for yourself to see if this helps you any. It appears the reference price is around $118 US if it helps any for a saved amount in some paychecks!
It's Rising of the Shield Hero, and for me it's hands down one of the best anime I've seen yet.
Basically it starts as your average fantasy series, with an average guy from a normal life being transported into a fantasy world. While there, Naofumi learns that he's been summoned along with three others to be these four legendary heroes, who are supposed to save the world from these waves of monsters. While the other heroes are all loved and adored, a bizarre series of events sees our Naofumi cast out by society and forced to do everything on his own. He has to work twice as hard to save the kingdom and clear his name, but meets some really memorable companions along the way.
You can read about it (and watch it) over on Crunchyroll for free. They have both an English sub and a voiceover dub that's phenomenal. Ane hey, it's free so I really really encourage you try it out!
Yes they did kiss. https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2019/06/26-1/fans-celebrate-the-shield-hero-finale-with-over-30000-messages-of-support
Naofumi would protect her first? I mean he’d do that regardless of the kiss or not. He’d give up his life for her. Also nothing in the plot would require that to happen. So nothing is changed. You’re inventing a fake scenario which would itself be changing the story. Have you actually even read it?
You don’t become a relationship just by kissing someone. Don’t think you understand how that works either.
This discussion isn’t about that. It’s about how you claimed an anime can’t have them kiss cause they didn’t kiss in the manga. Which is fucking stupid. Things are changed.
That news source had nothing to do with confirming that Crunchyroll was co-producing shieldhero, it was to show that it was released an early preview of shield hero. The fact that crunchyroll is co-producing it is common knowledge so they were just making a statement of fact about it.
Here is another link straight from crunchyroll. Scroll down and you will see Shield Hero listed.
I don't get you. Are you just being annoyingly pessimistic? The dvd sales were not even bad, they just were not great. Anime have gotten sequels with dvd/bluray sales worse than that. The difference between shield hero and an anime that sells average dvd/bluray is that it has crunchyroll backing them, and with that comes a bunch of revenue through streaming.
Japan isn't the only country that watches anime. You severely underestimate how much revenue the USA and China (and some other countries) help the anime industry by both purchasing products through online shops, or by streaming content online. Shield Hero is particularly popular in the west, so the west has a very large impact on the success of the series.
Seems like the directors are gearing more towards a raphtaliaxnaofumi route. They want to focus majorly on these two and their relationship (which has definitely been the case so far in the anime).
Here's the interview in question, and you can scroll down to where they are asked what they focused on as the core aspect of the adaptation.
I had my worries after hearing about the WN ending and the inclusion of so many other girls, but this sort of put my mind at ease for now
I feel like this sort of explains it. My feeling is that they decided to make the anime version unique from the source material, by not just focusing on Naofumi, but on Raphtalia as well. Instead of her role just being part of the protagonists party, they essentially have made both her and Naofumi as co-protagonists.
Which is why we are focusing way more on Raphtalia's romantic feelings toward Naofumi, since it is a source of development between the two. Some have even been speculating that the anime may stray away a bit from the source material, in terms of the relationship between these two, since it seems they are hammering on at the topic of romance between these two, more so than the LN and manga by a long shot. What will it result in? I have no idea, maybe romance actually grows for both of them sooner than expected? Just the fact that we are learning more about Raphtalia's personality in a more defined way, is starting to sway me into thinking this is the best form of the series so far (as long as they continue to make the future episodes good, of course.)
Sorry for the long post btw lol
Like what has been said, its all dependent on if it is written well. I lean more towards the romance side, considering just how impactful and important they are to each other (look up the lyrics of the ED song of the anime, legit made me tear up a little lol.)
While i enjoy the current dynamic between raphtalia and naofumi, it would mostly remain stagnant if no further development happened. While there is nothing wrong with that, the romance route would be the ultimate form of development, in naofumi's case more so. (Again, as long as it is written well.) Naofumi going from his state of hatred and isolation, to being able to express love towards another individual (raphtalia at this point being the only possible candidate) would be a beautiful development and message over the length of the series. Again, there is no wrong answer as long as whichever route is written well (except harem, i dislike harems lol.)
On an additional note, looking at what the directors and screenwriters stated in an interview in an objective way, I would bet my money on romance actually being a goal of theirs regarding naofumi and raphtalia (especially since they basically shot down the harem route in the interview.) https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2019/02/05/get-in-the-game-an-interview-with-the-director-and-screenwriter-of-the-rising-of-the-shield-hero-anime
No need to worry about a harem, directors confirmed it.
Damn well if you need and help with arguments against her bs just let me know.
P.S I dare you to mention that as of now the anime is one of the most popular anime of this season and it was made specifically to appeal to the west. (This article explains it)
That's on of my favorite dynamics of the whole show. He acts like he doesnt care, then slowly he shows his true colors of caring TOO much ❤
Do you think you could name all of the characters from the show? I created this game and am looking got people to try it out https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dilloncarter.risingoftheshieldheroquiz
If you're talking about the art book you can find it here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/4040640551?pf_rd_r=JKA1K7RQS2XJH34K6TH4
I don't know if you can get it on the normal goodsmile but I know it's on amazon for pre-order!
Oh come on, don't ask to be spoon fed lol
It's literally the first result in the Google Play Store if you search "My Anime List", anyway, here it is:
also if you are just looking for the dvd/blue ray its cheaper on amazon
Just put the kindle app on your device.
I'm not sure if you can read it online for free but you can order the books Kindle and physical version on Amazon. I'm sure most book stores likes Barnes and Noble will also sell it.
I recently bought the first 2 volumes of the manga in store and decided I'd check when the 3rd manga volume would be available on amazon. Saw that underneath was a link saying people also bought these with it... And bam book covers for 5 and 6.
Book 5 August 23, 2016
Book 6 November 22, 2016
Hell it was hard just finding it again. They might be listed in different categories than the first few books.
Also the descriptions can be a bit spoilery.
You can buy them from YenPress here
Or you can read the translations from here
