You are watching: Rise of the shield hero episode 3 > Anime evaluate > Winter 2019 > The increasing of the Shield Hero illustration 3 Review: wave of catastrophic

It’s illustration 3, episode 3, and the made me tear up, laugh, and also smile as well much. This was such a great episode, focusing on the upcoming tide that’s around to land. Room Naofumi and also Raphtalia ready to take it on? my favorite illustration so far however all 3 episodes exit so much have to be good, IT’S every SO GOOD!! Japanese initial Title: 破局の波


Another wave is about to hit and also Naofumi, grown-up Raphtalia, and the various other heroes prepare us to fight. Naofumi tho feels conflicted as to why he need to save this kingdom and also its people yet Naofumi is presented surprisingly that there are world who believe in him.

Episode Highlights

Feisty Raphtalia: She prospered up as well quickly but into a bad-ass. Ns couldn’t believe the turnaround in her personality, together she is currently confident and also fearless. That just makes me love her even more; this girl will not it is in trampled on ever again. Jerk other Heroes: Super awkward when Naofumi was reunited with the other heroes specifically Motoyasu and also Malty. They tho look down Naofumi as trash. I claimed this prior to in my illustration 1 review that the other heroes were not likable. I acquire the feeling now you’re claimed to dislike these other heroes and also put your full focus going onto Naofumi. And yeah, I dislike THEM!! You might feel in that scene just how much Naofumi probably wanted to tear them apart but he holds self back. Choose he has been act this entirety time so far. Unsure Selflessness: During this illustration I feel I acquired to see much more of the inner struggle Naofumi has had actually from episode 1. Asking such questions as: why save these people? This kingdom? quiet he choose to conserve the village and villagers gift a distraction. This recurring unsure emotion of selflessness is killing him inside and also yet he might go all rogue ass-hole. Yet remains to execute what the was brought to do right into the world: conserve it. Strong Shield Hero: Naofumi, as this collection protagonist, is just perfect for it. I find fascinating to think what relocate he will make next. Walk up versus the zombies and also other monsters, he showed off just how much he is grown already, his skills, and how rapid thinking Naofumi is. I don’t know just how the dude is staying so strong right currently where he need to want come scream through frustration. No Help climate Help: I was left gasping when Naofumi was protecting Raphtalia from the surprise attack. Naofumi overhearead the imperial knights muttering deliberately the they had actually no on purpose of aiding the Shield Hero. Naofumi can have allow those knights die from oncoming monsters, but nope, the didn’t. He went from gift so foolish to then simply tearing up next minute the royal knights and villagers pertained to Naofumi’s aid. Ns just went through a wave of so much emotion throughout that entirety scene succession GOD damn IT!!. How Naofumi must have felt inside… that must have actually felt that world did believe in him, especially as soon as the villagers thanked him. That made me tear up again. Have the right to you see currently what this series is doing to me?

Themes and also Trivia

Lolicon: At the start of the episode Naofumi brings up a famous reference, ‘Lolicon’, since of every the extra attention Raphtalia was getting. Lolicon way a sexual attraction come younger girls. Well, she is cute so the recommendation was suited, it was simply hysterical actually being used in the series.


The increasing Of The Shield Hero is shaping currently to be a winning collection for me. The very first three episodes have actually just swollen me away v the set-up and also Episode 3 was soo good, people. SOO GOOD!! that made me laugh, cry and smile all also much, over there were just so many great moments in this. Raphtalia has gone from so frashill to complete bad-ass. Ns love her newfound confidence and also determination. Plus, she’s simply gotten more adorable.Those three other heroes… ~ this episode, i really nothing care about them. They are there because that you to just hate on and also the collection does a an excellent job v that. Motoyasu is the many ignorant the end of the lot and also the various other two space bland. Therefore why need to I care about them? Ahaha. Cannot wait for once Naofumi gets his own back on them and everyone else.

Naofumi and also Raphtalia together a unit occupational so fine together, as this illustration has demonstrated, and also I love seeing how much they had actually leveled up from all the training. The worst transforming into the ideal moment was once the imperial knights were not going to assist Naofumi and also Raphtalia, leaving them because that dead. Then all of a suddenly the knights and also villagers come to aid him, i went from boiling mad to shedding a few tears due to the fact that I really feel for Naofumi’s character having no belief from the people who sent out him come this people to conserve it. Then people starting to think the Shield Hero is no what is rumored to be. Naofumi has been so selfless it rotates this point and might have gone on a revenge death spree. However the collection has no wanted to go this way, it is why ns truly in love with this series, due to the fact that of Naofumi’s protagonist his interesting choices and what he will carry out next. It’s exciting!!

Cuteness gets You free Stuff!!

Episode 3 to be my favorite so far from The increasing Of The Shield Hero and I don’t have actually much rather to say around it. Because that those that space saying this series is trash, it is much from it. You’re just absent out top top something epic shit.
