      The Rising of the Shield Hero


      MAL summary:

      Stories of old tell of four otherworldly heroes—wielding the sword, spear, bow, and shield—who defended the land from wave after wave of calamity. With the fate of the world in balance, the kingdom of Melromarc summons these legendary figures; in modern-day Japan, the call is answered, and the unwitting heroes are transported to this fantasy universe.

      Thrust into Melromarc and given the title of "Shield Hero," otaku Naofumi Iwatani is labeled the weakest due to his lack of offensive capability and apparent inexperience. When the heroes part ways to start their journeys, he only has one willing companion: the beautiful princess Malty Melromarc. However, she soon betrays him, steals all his money, and accuses him of taking advantage of her.

      For his alleged crimes, Naofumi is branded a criminal and made outcast of society. With hatred filling his heart, he sets out alone, vowing vengeance against those who wronged him.

      What? Nobody plays tank in these japans? Tanking might be simple, but it's hella important.

      I think all of them are accepting this way too easily. I feel like these characters are unrealistic for that so far.

      That's a rare element. I want to see how interesting it makes it.

      After reading your comments it seems we had a very similar impression.

      Re: The Rising of the Shield Hero

        Spoiler:  
      IT IS A TANUKI GIRL

      well raccoon girl same diff


      This is now indisputably and by default the best anime this season.

        Spoiler:  
      I hope she won't stay a slave for long. He obviously pities her, but I don't think he believes that--or is actually--he's in a position where he can release one of the few assets he has.

      I wonder if I'd have done the same in his position. If he's gonna go cold and ruthless, he might as well make a better choice than the diseased raccoon girl. How is he going to care for her in his situation? She's likely nothing but a waste of money, sick as she is.

      I wonder if he's only pretending to be cold and ruthless, rather than more holistically taking it upon himself to be so in order to survive. I assumed the latter, but his choice in slaves is odd in this case.

      Another interpretation is because the slave trader just told him she's diseased and has a mental disorder and probably won't last long, he was thinking he could make the deal dirt cheap, afford it easily and still learn how to handle slaves before getting one that's actually useful to him.
