Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari

The light novel one not the manga, while abit slowpoke here i started reading the LN since it gets translated further than the manga. I am not really observant in Light Novels but i think ever since Maouyuu comes out fantasy themed LN got more popular than before at least in the western perspective. Tate Yuusha no Nariagari or the rise of Shield Hero is one of those. The stories is about 4 heroes summoned from other world to fight the demon invasion but out of all 4 Heroes the Shield Hero is the focus of this LN. Unlike other heroes, he can't attack at all and in the beginning he goes through misfortune that humiliates him as far as his reputation tainted and makes his personality become anti-hero one. So instead a story of classic JRPG Hero, Tate Yuusha offer fantasy story in the eyes of Anti Hero saving the world while trying to get his revenge(which he will definitely gets and it was so satisfying!). While i don't know how the story will go but i think it will be decent one at least even though i don't hear too much good thing about the ending. Anyway here is the link for the LN Translation and thanks for those guys who put real effort to translate the story!

Tate Yuusha LN Translation


  1. Nice cover... Hopefully there's anime of it like SAO. There are a few cool knight fantasy anime later.. Try Madan no Ou to Vanadis and Rage of Bahamut Genesis.

  2. Well most of the good fantasy titles are currently stuck in LN medium but i think Tate Yuusha will eventually get anime since i think the LN finished already. Re:Monster worth a look too even though the Manga is release is slow
