Episode 7 – The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 3


The path of Shield Hero’s season three remains to be unclear. Many likable issues are launched, one of them being glimpses into the lives of everyone round Naofumi, giving the present a laid-again feeling. Considering the starting of the collection, I by no means would’ve thought we may attain a calming level. There is a way of overarching pressure as a result of the subsequent huge plot level could be the spirit phoenix’s arrival. But in the event you took that line out of the episode, there is not a lot urgency to make you suppose that preparation for the subsequent huge disaster is in course of.

It’s good to see Ren being chill and interacting with different individuals correctly. Naofumi having him serve meals to the youngsters and seeing him prepare with Eclair whereas watching that relationship develop is good. The Spear Hero’s whereabouts are unknown. Perhaps the creators notice they solely want one individual to harass Filo per episode, and introducing this new character named Rat fills the quota. Filo goes to want a lot remedy after the season is over since everyone seems to be simply looking her down and violating her private area with out consent.

While many of these slice-of-life moments are good, it begs the query of whether or not or not the present will keep this fashion till the huge unhealthy exhibits up at the finish of the season. Half of the season has already handed. While there have been developments, it does not really feel like the present goes anyplace. There is a complete subplot with a dragon that got here out of nowhere. Is it imagined to be tied in with the dragon that Ren killed in season one? Was it referenced for being cute, or was that imagined to be a foreshadowing? Hopefully, the subsequent episode will supply extra readability.

P.S. The CGI for the dragon appears to be like terrible
