The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 6 Review- Best Comedy Anime
If you were thinking before this aired, like I was, that this season was surprisingly light on comedy shows, you needn’t worry anymore. Shield Hero has resoundingly claimed the spot of the funniest anime of this season in a mind-boggling series of events. This was a hilariously terrible episode, filled with so many tropes that would make a parody anime blush. The state that this anime is in right now has been a case study of what not to do in a sequel.
The show introduced a new villain out of nowhere in the previous episode, who was the caricature of the annoying anime antagonist to the tee. Not only was he smart enough to be the master engineer of everything that happened in this season so far, but he was also powerful enough to deal with the combined powers of the four cardinal heroes, heroes of a different world, Ost, and everyone else. The biggest feat has to be that he managed to do all this while still being an annoying dweeb who doesn’t have a lick of a personality beyond being a reject from a better show.
The lady who was acting all secretive and mysterious and who would never give a straight answer to anything had a secret. Who could have seen that coming? Not only that, but her acting this way did a really bad job in getting her acquainted with the viewers, leading to people not caring about her as a creator. She also doesn’t make a lot of sense in the way her backstory is written, making her an overall worthless character. There was a point there somewhere, but the show lost it as soon as it introduced her.
Rishia was a joke of a character before this episode started, and she is a joke after it finished. The punchline changed a little between the time period, but she remains the most derivative and cliche of all characters in the show. Her ‘redemption” in this episode was one of the most illogical and awkward things the show has ever done. Tate no Yuusha Episode 6 was full of predictable story development, awkward character interactions, and a plot that didn’t seem to make any sense or trying to be unique.
The battle between “Good and Evil” was one of the goofiest parts of this entire show. While the episode looked good, the battle can be best surmised as watching two toddlers fighting with their imaginary beams DBZ style. There was no substance to the battle, as people just threw things at each other that were bright and colourful in lieu of an actual party. This was a terrible episode that did nothing for anyone watching it and did even less for the characters in the show. This one has zero redeeming qualities, except maybe for how funny it was to see these horrors unfold.
The Rising Of The Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 6 was a terrible episode that couldn’t do anything worthwhile. One would imagine that this nightmare would be over any time now, but one can only hope.Follow us on Instagram & Facebook to keep yourself updated with the latest news and reviews.
