The Rising of the Shield Hero‘s official description is:
“Naofumi Iwatani, an easygoing Japanese youth, was summoned into a parallel world along with three other people from parallel universes to become the world’s Heroes. Each of the heroes were respectively equipped with their own legendary equipment when summoned. Naofumi happened to receive the Legendary Shield, the sole defensive equipment, while the other heroes received a sword, a spear and a bow, weapons meant for attack. Unlike the other heroes who are fully supported by the kingdom and gain several strong allies each, Naofumi’s luck turns to the worse after his single companion, later revealed to be none other than Princess Myne, betrays him, steals all his belongings and leaves him devoid of all assistance and supplies after she falsely accuses him of raping her.
Shunned by everyone from the King to peasants, Naofumi is forced to train as a hero alone while working to make ends meet, until he buys from a slave trader a young tanuki demi-human girl named Raphtalia and an egg that hatches into a bird creature whom he names “Filo”, both quickly growing into adulthood and becoming powerful warriors under his care. As they little by little gain the trust and gratitude of the people with their heroic actions, Naofumi and his companions work hard to fulfill their mission as saviors of the world, while unraveling its deepest secrets.“
