My five episode thoughts on The Rising of the Shield Hero is on hold. I figure if I wanna talk about it, I’ll have to grab the manga and/or light novels. I’ve been informed stuff was changed. I will not do the same for Magical Girl SpecOps Asuka though. I’m doing it for Shield Hero mainly because I’ve gotten comments on Facebook, Discord, and in person on how friends/coworkers have been following the series since it came out and would often talk about differences or similarities.
So I guess I’ll have to give it the same sort of treatment I gave Arpeggio of Blue Steel and Gate, Thus the JSDF Fought There.
Which leads me to the next bit. What better way to support more Shield Hero (and Goblin Slayer) than to buy the translated stuff? I’ll probably get an opportunity now attending Katsucon 2019. I’ve once again volunteered as a staff member during my vacation, working with Public Safety (formerly Security). Now with the possibility (as of now) of another government shutdown, I may have to juggle my volunteer work with my actual job since all Leave will be cancelled. If that crisis is averted, well, since I front-loaded most of my required hours onto Thursday and Friday, I get to enjoy the con.
Anyways, this week’s Asuka post will be late, probably closer to next Tuesday or Wednesday. And Shield Hero thoughts in two weeks if anything.
