Like Goblin Slayer the season before it, The Rising of the Shield Hero arrived this season accompanied by controversy. But three episodes in, Shield Hero seems to be about more than shocking or upsetting its audience. In fact, it’s not the false accusation of rape that’s most interesting about the show—it’s how our hero reacts to it. Join Team FtK (David, Peter, and Holly) as they dive into the show and ask, WWSHD? Also, the team debuts a new segment, “Anime or Anime-Made Up?” with David and Peter trying to guess if anime synopses given by Holly are real or just imagined!
And we want your feedback as well! Each week we’ll ask a question on the podcast and feature your answers the next time that team rolls around. Here’s this week’s CQ (Cast Question): What was one anime that was surprisingly better than you expected?
