Synopsis

Naofumi Iwatani continues his adventure in this second volume. But his task is not yet complete and obstacles mount as the increasingly ominous waves of destruction approach. He finds a new friend and new powerful abilities that may prove to be too dangerous for the companionship. Will Naofumi live up to his role as the Shield Hero and save the world from its prophesized destruction? Or will his dark side consume him?

Here’s what fans are saying about the audiobook!

Comments from the editor of One Peace Books

We were thrilled with the success of the audiobook for volume 1. Delivering a title as beloved and celebrated as The Rising of the Shield Hero in audio format was a huge step. Above all else, we’re just glad that fans of the series get to experience this new medium as the story continues to thrill and inspire. We see Naofumi start to struggle with his darker side in Volume 2, so we’re hopeful that the audio format will allow readers experience the world of the Shield Hero in a brand new light.

Comments from the voice actor Kurt Kanazawa

Naofumi is a fun, moody, and sarcastic character. Playing someone like him who is such a full human, with all his flaws on display, is so refreshing! I also feel like he’s pretty different from the way I am in real life, or at least the way I may appear to others. But, admittedly, so many of his internal thoughts are very recognizable to me. His frustration about his physical limitations as the Shield Hero is also a totally universal human feeling, about anything really. That’s really one of the brilliant cornerstones of this entire series.
