THROUGH AN EVENT HELD IN JAPAN THE PREMIERE MONTH OF THE NEW SEASON OF THE RISING OF THE SHIELD HERO IS REVEALED
This weekend there is a special event called Kadokawa Light Novel Expo 2020, and one of its first announcements is related to Season 2 of The Rising of The Shield Hero anime.
It was known that the series would return this year, but it was not known when. It is now known that it will be in the fall. Specifically, in October, and the only thing left to know is its release date. But there were other details as well.
THE RISING OF THE SHIELD HERO 2 WILL BE ON CRUNCHYROLL
Crunchyroll, which was the one who shared the announcement on social networks and its website, reconfirmed that this anime will be available through its service. He also revealed that his official name will be The Rising of The Shield Hero 2.
Yes, he only added a number to it, but it is more than enough to imply that it is a continuation of the adventures of Naofumi Iwatani and her friends. He also shared a trailer for this series.
Unfortunately, it is not new, but it is the same as published in September of last year. But it doesn’t hurt to take a look again. Crunchyroll also shared the team in charge of this new wave of episodes.
The most obvious change is that of the director. Takao Abo originally took over the first season. However, this time he gave his place to Masato Jinbo. Hopefully this doesn’t affect the production of the anime.
THE PREMIERE WILL BE IN OCTOBER, BUT FOR NOW THERE IS NO DATE
The rest of the team is the same. Keigo Koyanagi is still the scriptwriter in charge, and the same can be said for Masahiro Suwa, the character designer. Kevin Penkin also returns as the responsible composer.
His musical contributions are very much remembered, and it is fortunate that he is back in The Rising of The Shield Hero 2. Also, Kinema Citrus will return to animate the episodes of this new season, which is ideal.
But it will also have the support of the DR MOVIE study. The latter is a South Korean animation house that has collaborated on multiple projects throughout its existence.
Among them the Onyx Equinox animated series, another Crunchyroll exclusive. Many more details about this sequel are yet to be revealed. But before you wonder, Season 3 is already confirmed. Most likely, it will be released until 2022.
