The Rising of the Shield Hero Characters to Guest-Star in Isekai Quartet Anime Season 2

posted on by Egan Loo
Other characters teased for new crossover anime season

The Isekai Quartet crossover anime's "Yōkoso Isekai!" fan appeciation event announced on Saturday that characters from The Rising of The Shield Hero franchise will be "guest stars" in the second Isekai Quartet season. The event also teased that other characters will appear in the second season.

Crunchyroll and Funimation were streaming the first Isekai Quartet season as it aired. Funimation describes the story:

The button appeared out of nowhere. There weren't any signs NOT to push it…so the solution is obvious, right? Is it a trap or the start of something new and exciting? The crews of Re:Zero, Overlord, KONOSUBA, and The Saga of Tanya the Evil will find out when they go from their world to another and get stuck in…class?! See what adorable chaos they'll get up to in this collection of shorts!

The first season premiered in Japan on April 9.

Minoru Ashina (Kaiju Girls, Pure Pure Purea Desu Overlord shorts) is scripting and directing the project. Minoru Takehara is serving as both character designer and chief animation director. Studio Puyukai (Kaiju Girls, Lord Marksman and Vanadis, Pure Pure Purea Desu Overlord shorts) is animating the work.

The Rising of The Shield Hero anime will have two more seasons after the first season ran for 25 episodes earlier this year.
