Here we again. Another great anime, and yet, more faux outrage from non-anime watchers. This anime is based off the web novel of the same name and is about Naofumi Iwatani, a nondescript otaku from present day Japan, who is teleported to another world as one of the four Legendary Heroes. Each hero has a weapon they carry. a sword, a spear, a bow and yes a shield. Naofumi finds himself among the other heroes, who view the experience as part of a game. He has no point of reference to what he is experiencing, where the other heroes think it is similar to games they have played.
Naofumi also finds himself equipped with the shield, a weapon of defense. The people of the land view his weapon and him as useless in the battle against the evil that is destroying their world. This anime has action, adventure, slice of life and drama. It is a story of redemption and hope. We are glad to watch this all season long.
Now, what all the fuss is about. Naofumi is accused, FALSELY of Rape. His accuser uses the accusation to steal his money and have him shunned from the other heroes and the citizens of the land. This happens in real life, thus the outrage. The people who are complaining on social media are just a group of whiners bent on making others miserable. They ARE not to confused with actual anime watchers, because as we ALL know, there are many many more scenes much worse than a false rape accusation to get upset over.
Then episode 2 came out, and so did the rest of the SJW crowd, flooding social media demanding censorship of this anime because......Naofumi, without anyone else to help him, saved a child slave by buying her. Once again, this is just an anime, but the SJW crowd kept complaining. These SJWs only seek to make other miserable.
The bottom line is this is just an anime. It's entertainment. It is not the first time we saw slavery or false rape accusations in anime. It is just an opportunity for SJWs to inject their politics into our entertainment. We try to keep our politics out of this community to keep it open for all ANIME fans, and we will continue to do so. We are against censorship of any kind in anime. If you cannot handle anime then don't watch it, but NOWHERE does that give you the right to ruin it for others. We will get off our soapbox now and watch Rise of the Shield Hero to its end. You should too!
