Synopsis for The Rising of the Shield Hero
The Four Heroes are a group of ordinary men from modern Japan summoned to the kingdom of Melromarc to become its saviors.
Melromarc is a country ravaged by Waves of Calamity that have repeatedly devastated the land and brought disaster to its citizens for centuries.
The four heroes are respectively given a sword, a spear, a bow, and a shield to defeat these waves. Naofumi Iwatani, an otaku, suffers from the curse of being the “Hero of the Shield”.
Armed with only a measly shield, Naofumi is looked down on and ridiculed by his fellow heroes and the people of the kingdom due to his weak offensive capabilities and lackluster personality.
When the heroes have resources and comrades to train with, Naofumi sets out with the only person willing to train alongside him, Malty Melromarc. However, he is soon betrayed by her and is falsely accused of taking advantage of her.
Naofumi is then heavily discriminated against and hated by the people of Melromarc for something he didn’t do. With a raging storm of pain and distrust in his heart, Naofumi begins his journey to strengthen himself and his reputation.
Later, however, the difficulty of being alone arises, so Naofumi buys a dying demi-human slave named Raphtalia to accompany him on his travels.
As the waves close in on the kingdom, Naofumi and Raphtalia must fight for the kingdom’s survival and protect the people of Melromarc from their dire future.
