Recap of The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 2

After fending off hordes of bat familiars and their friends, Naofumi is contacted by Filo and Raphtalia, who are concerned about his safety. When a mystery woman approaches, he is asked if he is the shield hero. When Naofumi responds in the affirmative, she vanishes shortly after begging to be slain, leaving the hero perplexed. Soon after, a sacred military meeting is convened, at which the allied troops discuss the recent violence and destruction unleashed in the aftermath of the Spirit Tortoise’s unexpected waking.

According to rumors, the mythical monster has destroyed the capital and is now sleeping. If legends are to be accepted, he will most likely remain in this state for two to three days. Following that, the allied forces believe the Spirit Tortoise will travel to Rohiloth, a thickly inhabited city in the region. Naofumi encourages the current leaders to devise some countermeasures because they have more than ample time.

While the majority of them believe that the united troops will be more than enough to stop the continuous threat, one of the military leaders believes that the shield hero will be required since conquering the legendary monster will be difficult. When asked about the Seven Star Heroes, Naofumi is utterly unaware of their existence. Queen Mirelia informs him that other heroes have been recruited from various worlds; while they are not as powerful as the Cardinal Heroes, they can nevertheless play an important role in the final fight.

When the enigmatic hooded woman who had earlier vanished storms into the conference and reveals her identity, the proceedings come to an abrupt halt. It turns out she is the King’s regent, Ost Horai, and Mirelia recognizes her. She goes on to explain that she is a Spirit Tortoise’s familiar, similar to the ones Naofumi fought earlier.

In her human form, she entered the government in order to influence political decisions, which resulted in conflicts, allowing the legendary monster to collect souls, which he planned to use to stop the disastrous waves. If this strategy fails, Spirit Tortoise frequently tramples densely populated communities in order to collect as many souls as possible in order to complete his quest. But this time, someone has broken the Tortoise seal and is commanding the fabled monster to create as much havoc as possible. Ost Horai begs the shield hero to destroy her own creator and offers to assist him in locating the true perpetrator of all the chaos.

The End of The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 2: How Will Naofumi Stop the Spirit Tortoise?

Raphtalia encourages Naofumi to find common ground with others when the military talks end on a poor note, with Naofumi storming out of the room, so that the Spirit Tortoise can be halted without further civilian casualties. The shield hero explains his strategy to the rest of the leaders the next day. He intends to use armed forces on neutral ground to entice the mythical monster, knowing that an abundance of human souls attracts him.

The dragon rider battalion of the Haikazaya army offers to be the decoy. Naofumi believes they are the best fit for the task and starts to outline the next stage of the strategy. He claims that in order to defeat him, they must somehow bring the Spirit Tortoise to a halt for a short period of time. Before he can delegate this task to anybody, the Rohiloth army offers to utilize siege weaponry on the perimeter, which can later be used for a surprise attack.

Then Noafumi requests that the Medius army’s mage battalion demolish a neighboring old fortification just as the legendary monster is about to strike. The shield hero also intends to plant bombs in the mountains to make the strike even more lethal. He feels that the combined impacts will be sufficient to stop the Spirit Tortoise, allowing him to be decapitated. However, Naofumi has yet to determine how he intends to complete the final stage of the plan.
