Raphtalia, Filo, and Naofumi head to the east wbelow points take an interesting rotate in this week’s episode. Close contact for Naofumi as a raging, unwell-known power tries to take over while trying to save a village. This episode was a bit intense yet thrilling as constantly. Japanese Original Title:  呪いの盾


Naofumi and also the gang undertaking to the east and also come throughout a plagued village. All the villagers are gravely ill as a result of sword hero Ren slaying a dragon and not cleaning up his mess. Poichild appears to come out from the dragon’s corpse that brings a fatal death. Naofumi and the others take on the task of disposing the corpse just to discover that it’s not completely dead… It is a zombie dragon! Woohoo! This encounter causes a unwell-known dark power to climb up out of Naofumi that puts him in risk.

Episode Highlights

Heroes Don’t Clean Up Their Messes: It’s becoming a thing… The heroes are messing up. In last episode, the miracle seed Hero Motoyasu left to run a muck and currently Hero Ren left a pool of dragon corpse for Naofumi and the others to clean up. The various other heroes can’t seem to clean up after themselves and also usage the excuse: ‘oh they didn’t recognize anypoint prefer this would certainly happen’. I feel that it was still their obligation to make sure tbelow wouldn’t be any type of results. They need to have done their research study. Filo Dragon Chow: It was just for a minute but my heart skipped and I believed that Filo was dead. NOONE CAN CUT OUT THIS CUTIE YET, I was thinking, however still the minute left me gasping. This series does this all also often.Hate Rising Up: Naofumi has actually had his share of blows since getting here, never before exposing the seeming anger that’s raging inside of him. It was only a issue of time somepoint would reminder him over the edge, which lastly taken place. The minute Naofumi assumed Filo was dead, he lost it and led to a new dark power to disclose itself – a dangerous brand-new shield ability. All that anger, anguish, frustration let the locked hatres pour out. I’ll admit I obtained scared tright here for a 2nd, seeing all the hatred swell out however it was badass still. Obviously this brand-new power will play an essential role at some allude. We just had actually a glimpse of what might come. Luckily, the beautiful Raphtalia was there to carry Naofumi back to his consistent self. Share The Blame: Naofumi smiled for the FIRST TIME roughly Raphtalia and Filo and it was so cute. What also was cute was just how after what taken place they all blame themselves for just how the zombie dragon was faced. Raphtalia wouldn’t have actually had a curse inserted upon her if Filo hadn’t charged in there so desperately. It’s all nothing yet ‘if’s’ when putting the blame on yourself, since what is done is done. It was just cute how they all felt responsible. It mirrors how kind-hearted and sincere this group is in the direction of one another. Spfinish The Night: Naofumi’s obliviousness is going to be annoying till he realises what Raphtalia will certainly pertained to mean to him in the future. It was a cute moment, Raphtalia’s attempt to be alone through Naofumi. Ah bless her, save trying girl.


The last 3 episodes in Shield Hero I feel have actually been structure for something significant that will pertained to pass, and have actually been beyond entertaining. Taking the moment to concrete on Naofumi, Raphtalia, and Filo growing bond acquired us a feel for these adorable characters. I remained in love through Naofumi and Raphtalia’s character from the world go yet including Filo into the mix made the team even better. The three of them together I’ve concerned love also more as a group, and it is somepoint to appreciate from the past three episodes. Time was taken out to carry out everyone’s personality more and also lug them closer. This for me was such a crucial thing for continuing on and also was executed brilliantly. My heart skipped a bit for Naofumi, from the pent-up anger that wanted to seep out of him to the moment of practically shedding control. Naofumi is the greatest reason I favor this series. He’s become the heart and also spirit of it all and also made me desire to cry seeing him in that fragile state. The temptation was tright here to offer into all the hatred on his own and also it would have actually been a quick transition. You might think this makes him truly weak, additionally bereason Raphtalia lugged him back from it. But you have to remember the hardships our hero has actually been dealing with and also still he made a decision to perform what he was summoned for. Facing every little thing through such compocertain also if inside him is a raging storm takes most guts. Exposing all the sides we’ve watched of Naofumi so much, I couldn’t love him more as this series’ main protagonist. I would desire no other. This was one more adoring, kickass episode and I want to watch that mysterious shield enhancement soon!

Oblivious Shield Hero

Naofumi may be ending up being more badass on the field however completely oblivious once a girl hits on him. We observed an additional kick-ass episode and this series is on a residence run presently. I hope it keeps it up.
