The hero we need
by Joshdabeard -
The rising of the shield hero is an amazing isekai series.while we are bombarded every season with new isekai shows(which I'm biased because I love isekai) most of them are relatively generic,shield hero stole the spotlight of new anime last year.a wonderful plot betrayal,a wonderful story of an underdog rising to the challenge.this blu ray/dvd combo comes with a great sturdy cardboard box that's very ornate,showing our favorite shield user and best girl raphtalia on the front,I really like the design of this box.the artbook is nice and rather detailed,the smartcards are really cool and unique I've never seen art cards printed this way before,the mini keychain figures are a nice touch and the heros symbol stickers are nice(wish they were a bit bigger),and the fabric poster is a nice touch as well.also wish there was cast commentary as well for such a great anime show,I believe the second season has it.overall a great buy if you love the rising of the shield hero
A unique and different approach from the usual Isekai animes

The one-hour pilot episode is powerful and emotional, as the main protagonist, whom is eager and willing to fight the Waves. is suddenly betrayed and falsely accused of a crime. Now alone/outcast with nobody willing to fight by his side, Naofumi must battle monsters in the wild, while also battling the unjust bias, hatred, rumors, and false crimes set upom him by the ruling class. Even Sword, Spear, and Bow naively believe the lies said of the Shield Hero, and despise Naofumi in the manner he obtains Raphtalia to fight for him.
An epic story of lost honor, lost dignity, and the struggle to overcome despair towards the path of redemption. With strong character development, well-timed situational humor, and even Euro-beat style music by Madkid with "Rise" & "Faith" as the opening songs are more reasons to highly recommend this series!
The main highlight of the LE set is the colorful box, the art book, and everything else is nicely done as well so 5 stars.

I bought this series based on a recommendation by a friend and it probably is one of the best isekai series I ever watched! Funimation did a really great job with the limited edition release of this series, the limited edition box has a nice copper shine on the text, overall feel and art presentation on the box covers are top tier and really makes you feel like you own something special. The goodies that come with the set are similar to past Funimation releases and are very good quality, I can probably say this is one of the more premium releases I've seen from them and I highly recommend it!
