The Rising of the Shield Hero S2 Studio:
DR Movie will be animating The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 along with Kinema Citrus which has animated the first season of the anime.
For those who don’t know about DR Movie, it’s a South Korean animation studio that regularly works with the Japanese animation industry.

About The Rising of the Shield Hero:
Be it getting bullied or looked down upon as the Shield Hero, Naofumi never lost faith in himself. Even after getting falsely accused of rape and hated by the people of the kingdom, Naofumi embarks on a journey to strengthen himself as a hero and protect the kingdom though it has abandoned him. Along the way, he buys a demi-human slave Raphtalia to accompany him on his journey to become the savior of the kingdom.
Though the change of directors and the addition of a new studio might worry some, it is unlikely that it will affect The Rising of the Shield Hero’s second season that much. Both the new director and animation studio are well experienced and they will also be working with the staff members from the previous season.
