As you can see above, the new trailer showcases the anime's overhauled art style, and fans seem to be enthralled with the big makeover. The Rising of the Shield Hero has never looked this crisp before, and fans are eager to see what its heroes get into this season.
If you are not familiar with this franchise, you have some time to catch up before its return this March. The Rising of the Shield Hero debuted in 2012 through some light novels before its manga adaptation debuted two years later. This take on the franchise blew up in popularity and gave Kinema Citrus reason to order an anime adaptation. Season one was a hit, and now its comeback is being overseen by a new group. DR Movie will bring season two to life, and its team's take on Naofumi Iwatani is being met with praise so far.
