    I do hope so. The raphtalia figure by kotobukiya looks pretty good to be honest, but since I'm a completionist I won't get it without also having to have a chance at also getting Naofumi (and filo and maybe even melty).

    Yeah I enjoyed Season 1. I really liked how they handled an MC having to live as a pariah and dealing with trust issues, without it feeling too heavy-handed like I've seen in a few other revenge stories. I heard LN Naofumi is different than in the anime which is a shame. I normally hate when anime adaptions change source material, but since I never read the LNs it made it easier to put out of my mind. The characters other than Naofumi were pretty flat though, I can't lie. Which is why I'm cautious what the story will be like moving forward now that Naofumi's name has been cleared and a lot of what made me interested in the show seems to be all wrapped up.

    EDIT: Oh with Seasons 2 and 3 announced, I'm sure Raphtalia will get a few more scales. Filo looks like she'll also get at least 1 or 2 (I know Kadokawa is already making one). Don't expect any scales of Naofumi.

    XRaptor7 (10 days ago) #76899080Shield Hero was pretty good IMO. It's impressive how much they can make you hate a character's guts in such a short time.
    I'm more interested to hear what your thoughts are about the news of just being given your predicted grades instead of having to do the exams. Sounded like a bad joke to me. Talk about lowering the value of grades (not like GCSEs or A-Levels were hard to begin with though).

    Wait, are they seriously doing that? God that's a terrible idea. I exceeded my predicted GCSE grades when I did them; what happens to the kids who would do the same this year?

    So this is the corner of the Internet where Shield Hero fans are located? Imo, it was a complete trainwreck. Generic story with nothing interesting or impactful happening and some of the flattest characters I've seen. Really a shame because the first episode opened up for something good, and then they just threw it all away and said "let's just do some isekai tropes".

    XRaptor7 (9 days ago) #76904482... This is the first I've heard of this. Having no international students isn't only a huge financial hit for the university, but from my personal experience, international students are far more valuable assets in group work than home students... probably because the standards for their entry are much steeper and thus they're a lot smarter.

    Yeah it's a shame for the universities but it's an international crisis so I can't do anything about it, besides I was planning on doing some international work in japan anyway. I'll ensure I'm not missing out but this is only my year that will experience this (hopefully) so, we'll probably get international students in 2021-2022

    Shield Hero has a special place in my heart, it was the first light novel (actually web novel) that I ever read. I finished it (the web novel) about a month ago, after more than five years of getting hooked, stop reading, getting back on track, stop reading again...and continue reading again after watching the anime adaptation.

    I honestly never though I will ever see an adaptation of the series, and watch Naofumi and Raphtalia on screen...But here we are!

    Having said that, While I definitely enjoyed the anime adaptation...It had issues, mostly on the second half:

    1-They tried to make the characters more "morally correct", Raphtalia fighted and stabbed with an actual sword (not the magic one) the noble who tortured her instead of thinking whether or not she should kill him. And it was Naofumi who wanted to see the b*tch and the king executed and he only changed his mind after the queen convinced him, not because he felt "bad" like in the anime.
    2-Pacing issues: From saving Melty to the fight with the Pope, they could have adapted that part in less episodes (there is a filler one when they are fighting the pope). The Cal Mira arc (the island one) was a bit rushed, specially how Rishia (the green haired girl) joins the party. If they hadn't done that filler episode they would have had one more episode for this part.

    So that´s it, It was good but it could have been better. However I am excited for the second season since this the part when light novel and web novel become different. Also I hope they don´t repeat the same mistakes.

    I didn’t think anyone would be interested in that kind of thing.
    I’ve not really got an opinion, all of us in my sixth form are of course annoyed that two years of learning have gone down the drain and my little sister who was meant to do her GCSEs are equally as annoyed.
    We have as much information as anyone else, we don’t know what the universities are going to do about us. On the up side, the amount of international students has gone down to zero so there will be loads of spaces in universities for us national students. There are ups and downs but we’re coping the best we can, for the rest of our sixth form we’re all in a google classroom with teachers in the sixth form and we’re all supporting each other the best we can.
    I’ll be happy to explain more if anyone wants to hear it, I didn’t think that would be very interesting:)

    Nendo Raphtalia is so cute. I am thinking about buying her.
    I read the light novel before the release of the anime. I read up to vol 17 and I quitted. The story started to drag towards the end. But overall, it's enjoyable. I am looking forward to Season 2 of the anime.
