I’m guessing in the final chapter they beat the shit out of a Shield Hero caricature
I have read all of the Shield Hero light novels that have been released in English and that doesn't make a bit of sense. Naofumi goes to great lengths to help those who have been betrayed which is seen early on with Rishia and later with Kizuna the Hunting Hero. It is a pity that the anime didn't get to the 8th light novel since Kizuna is a great character and her sense of sarcasm reminded me of an otome protagonist
Probably they, like me, are basing their view of Shield Hero - character and series - on the first episode of the anime, which was all I could stomach. Which is to say, it came off as the kind of story a bitter misogynistic incel would write to show how innocent men's entire lives are ruined by false rape accusations that evil women do just because. Nothing I've heard about the series since has convincingly suggested otherwise. Maybe I'm wrong, but I've got better things to spend my time on than watching/reading Shield Hero on the mere chance I am. Feel free to spoiler tag a brief rundown of why I'm wrong if so.
