Yesterday some anon told me to read Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari, and I just want to say thanks. There are only 8 Chapters out by now, but the story is really flawless and seem to be heading in an interesting direction. I would really encourage everone to read it. i think it has great potential!
Bad news: You're going to have to wait ages for the next chapter with the rest of us.
Good news: depending on howmuch time you spend on /a/ you might get to enjoy some live translation threads with us.
You missed the last 6 or so.
I was hoping it'd continue to be more Tate vs. World, but Tate ends up being the leader of all the heroes and the alliance army. Also, a good number of his slaves are actually super special. Raftalia is actually a superior offshoot of raccoon. Fioria is next in line for bird queen. Personal dragon is part of dragon emperor trying to restore himself. Some other weak slave he picked up is actually 1 in 100 years genius at a super martial art with shit stats that actually becomes not shit later. Also, everyone sucks his dick.
It became a bit too much for me.
I guess it's alright if you approach it like shounen.
It's kind of different but I doubt the main storyline is going to deviate that significantly from the web novel.
i i just read the latest chapter, what was up with him not recognizing racoon girl? Could he literally not see her appearance change for some reason? Like because she was a child when the slave contract was first made?
>banishes ancient evils
>cures the sick everywhere he goes
>stops famines across the land
So, how long until Saint Naofumi turns water into wine and starts getting called the Son of God?
MC is Japanese Captain America rite ?
as Seiba as Japanese King Arthur
Why is that man dressed up as Rance?
Remodeling living beings requires that they be placed inside a vat. He can't just do it on the fly, like with plant seeds.
Not humans. Sub-humans. He gives Keele the ability to transform into a cerberus. A cute, little, puppy cerberus. The form is pretty strong, but the stronger the form he creates, the stronger the weaknesses have to be. In her cerberus form, she's easily distracted by food (nothing new) and can be put to sleep by music. Anyway, he can only give stronger forms when the person in question has room for development. The more room they have, the easier it is to add traits. Kinda like, say, building a golem in the Legend of Mana game. 'Course, he can remove traits too, but when he was a mad scientist, he didn't want to inconvenience his minions and take away their 'humanity' just to make them into weapons.
You forget something.
From previous thread he will be
underworld boss and practically control economy behind the scenetogether with his cronies.
Shieldbro is embodiment of benevolent mobster in that world.
Just how fucking based he is. Crap, I can't stop smiling waiting for when that time come.
it's not that he intends to control the economy. The slave dealer and accessories merchant want to profit, but they come together just to mitigate the crime level. High enough to be profitable, but low enough to just be a nuisance else one of the heroes go and involve themselves in a one-man war against crime.
>conquer almost every kingdom
IN FREAKING LAPUTA
Most MC make girl like him or doing something heroic.
Shieldbro MAKES THE LOLI.
Does not change the fact that those triumvirate is that world's Mobster Overlord and have control over economy, right?
They just didn't have malicious intention by controlling economy.
>Firo suddenly lets out a strange call and runs rampant.
>The three of us who were in the carriage (Me, Raphtalia, and the merchant) grasp at the carriage’s handrails to keep from falling.
>The wheels let out a loud rattle so I couldn’t hear what was going on outside.
>Every now and then Firo flips out and causes a ruckus like this.
>This is the fourth time since we’ve started peddling. Such a capricious creature.
His army wasn't that strong. They were merely deterrents and weren't able to push back the heroes and the slaves he had trained for a long time (and they were being careful not to kill). He made them in an emergency just to buy time for his research.
is there anything more adorable than loli tanuki
>MC is Japanese Captain America rite ?
Nah, he only has the moralfag side from Caps, not the badass side due to DEF based stats.
>It seems I'll be able to make huge profits if I utilize it correctly.
"Naofumi-sama your smile is looks rotten"
Oops, did it show on my face?
Yeah, that was my problem with the series too. It's not that I don't like it, it's that things become too 'big picture' - The hero remains rather grumpy and sort of a misanthrope even when there's no real reason for him to be. (i.e. He has a tanuki and the super-special demon bird girl fawning over him.)
I would personally have preferred the story to have focused on a solo character. More, he has a whole plethora of powers that aren't actually that useful, and I suppose it's kind of a running gag. I'd just have personally preferred more focus on RPG-adventuring instead of trading and so on.
Like, the shield's abilities are interesting, but the passive bonuses are the ones he relies on. Basically, not too much seems to be happening after the initial points.
I've missed this until now, can anyone share where the final 3 are until now? I thought Galactica Scanlations was doing it but I just checked again they've only got up to chapter 5, did /a/ take over? Is a list of mediafire anywhere?
They're both moralfags. It just so happens that Steve got a serum that amplified his moralfagness and gave him a super body, meanwhile Naofumi got an accusation that only amplified his paranoia.
He's got a sense of obligation to those who he feels indebted to/the ones under him, but he's not like Captain America who goes out of his way to show mercy or protect ingrates. Definitely not a 'moralfag'. Raphtalia gets angry sometimes at some of his decisions, but can't really tell him not to do it since he does have his reasons.
It's slightly annoying how all the other people are assholes and/or generally incompetent. Like, the other legendary heroes are basically a pack of dumbshits, and the princess is a bitch for no real reason.
I mean, exactly why did they discriminate against the Shield Hero? I get that the King doesn't like him, but he's not his predecessors. He's just some random guy who bears the title, and he does have immense power - Even if it's not immediate power like the others.
It would make more sense to manipulate him and secretly hope that he ends up dying, instead of being outright hostile to him. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy!
>the other legendary heroes are basically a pack of dumbshits
they are introduced as japanese MMO players, which are slightly less retarded than BR
>the princess is a bitch for no real reason
>exactly why did they discriminate against the Shield Hero
>it hasn't been explained yet so there's no reason, it has nothing to do with me being retarded
I'm aware of the spoilers, but they didn't really make sense. Sure, you can favor one of the four heroes, but the Shield Hero is still a force to be reckoned with even if he hasn't unlocked his completely broken powers yet.
>they are introduced as japanese MMO players, which are slightly less retarded than BR
BRs at least have a semblance of balance, japs are all "muh DPS" and disregard everything else.
> Like, the other legendary heroes are basically a pack of dumbshits
They are not. Just because Shieldbro hates their guts in the beginning for not spoonfeeding him doesn't mean they are dumbshits. Will you spoonfeed someone who asks dumb questions that are common knowledge? I doubt you will treat him good.
> princess is a bitch for no real reason.
There is a pretty good reason for her behaviour that's explained later.
> why did they discriminate against the Shield Hero?
Because he nearly raped someone? Or because he's not a "true' Hero?
> I get that the King doesn't like him
He wasn't like that in the beginning, else he wouldn't give him extra funds. How would you treat someone who tried to rape your daughter? He's a human, not emotionless machine.
>There is a pretty good reason for her behaviour that's explained later.
This implies that you read the story in its entirety.
>How would you treat someone who tried to rape your daughter? He's a human, not emotionless machine.
This implies that you did not.
Keep it consistent, brah.
Wait, are you implying that the person who robbed him should tell everyone "hey people I robbed him he's innocent guys, please forgive me" just like that?
King knew nothing.
Galactica is months and months behind, yuushanon is tl'ing in threads but I don't know if it's been collected anywhere, just have to find it on your own. Too bad mangatraders is dead.
Did you not read his dialogue?
He's a pragmatic guy. Killing them or letting them die when they could be killing the monsters would be dumb. Consider the situation and what's actually the smart thing to do rather than on what the 'moral' thing is.
Look at this dude's post >>113604171
Shieldbro doing that when wave happens. He know well that he can't fight all those monster by himself. Not to mention Raph isn't strong enought to fend all those monster.
In a weird way, he use knight to kill monster. Personally, I think shieldbro will let knights died if there's a way to end wave without relying on them.
>it hasn't been explained yet so there's no reason, it has nothing to do with me being retarded
Why does it have to be immediately explained? You can't really give a satisfactory answer for this kind of thing. The point in the story at which mysteries like this (why does the church hate the shield hero, why does the king hate him personally, why is the princess a bitch) are revealed alters the story's flow. Minor mysteries can be answered sooner rather than later, but greater ones require build up (either by deepening the mystery or creating the circumstances to make the revelation somehow more enjoyable to the reader emotionally) to make the revelation satisfactory.
>He wasn't like that in the beginning
He was clearly discriminating against him since the beginning. Yes, it's true that he's shown a blatant bias for his daughter, however even before that, we knew he didn't like the MC.
>They are not. Just because Shieldbro hates their guts in the beginning for not spoonfeeding him doesn't mean they are dumbshits. Will you spoonfeed someone who asks dumb questions that are common knowledge? I doubt you will treat him good.
And this is...this just doesn't make sense. I guess you're the sort who gets angry at other people for telling anons the title of a manga or anime, huh?
I've been wondering, do the other Heros have the ability to absorb just about anything into their Legendary weapon? The use the gained skills to make potions and stuff? Or do the other Weapons work differently?
Anon no Yuusha no Toransurato
Yes, the other heroes can do the same,
although they weren't as fastidious about it as Naofumi was, who stuck everything into his shield. They just stuck in monster parts when the monster in question seemed like a boss character.
Damn, it's pretty refreshing but also kind of unsettling to read about a protagonist that can be this ice cold.
>Apparently your pet is actually a really rare type of creature
>Hmmm maybe I should kill it and put it in my shield then
The village had a famine because of the poor soil.
Motoyasu brought the seed which was reputed to grow in any kind of condition to solve the famine because it would grow food quickly.
It went crazy, which left Naofumi to clean up the mess.
The seed has been retrieved and the plants it grew are dead. The famine resumes since ordinary plants still can't grow in the poor soil conditions.
That's the fattest bird, Fitoria.
There can be several reasons why, yes. You can understand the specific reason for THIS circumstance from the solution for it. Just work backwards. It's the sort of tests you go through in school to test your reasoning ability.
>You can understand the specific reason for THIS circumstance from the solution for it.
Except you can't.
Since a seed that spawns infitine amounts of foods is a solution to basically every kind of famine
Maybe, just maybe, at one point he was able to see the ground and noticed it was shit.
Or maybe he kept his vision tilted up the entire time and the ground never came into view.
it started super awesome the chapters covered in the manga where great but now after i read to chapter 40 its more of a letdown there is no more tanuki-shieldbro thing after the 1. wave duell thing, i knew about the lolibird but the outcome of that is shit as well guess ill drop it as well
and what other causes would it be?
weather? nothing strange was noted about the weather
insects? something would have been mentioned and they would still be there
blight? they would just grow a different crop
poor soil? a certainty
>even when there's no real reason for him to be
Oh, he just hates people in general except the ones close to him. He's not perpetually grumpy, you know. Snarky, probably, but he isn't constantly wearing a frown on his face like you seem to imagine him. If he's frank and candid, that's only because of the circumstances he's in that force him to act pragmatically. Generally, he's pleasant (or at the very least polite; and this goes for the other heroes, despite how they may have treated him throughout the discrimination ordeal) to everyone after his situation improves.
Is there a problem in a hero in meeting and making friends with powerful companions? Call it fate, call it luck, but it's silly to complain about such a thing. It's just you suddenly deciding that it's a problem for whatever reason. Important characters are attracted to each other. This isn't anything new. It's happened in old myths too. It's all a part of living out a legend. And given the video game nature of the setting, it's to be expected. It's a trope waiting to be used and if it's executed well, what reason do you have to complain about it other than for the sake of trying to find a fault in things?
>weather? nothing strange was noted about the weather
>soil? nothing strange was noted about the soil
>insects? something would have been mentioned and they would still be there
>soil? something would have been mentioned
>they would still be there
Not necessarily, they come, eat everything and move on.
Welcome to these threads.
There has been arguments about how to eat with a fork and Japanese history guns before.
>that one guy arguing Nobunaga's army was the strongest in the world - or at least superior to any European forces - and that Japan had superior guns
>that guy who argued about how the Japanese couldn't possible have good guns due to low quality iron ore and that they don't have rifles due to lack of rifling
>When they actually did because they imported a blacksmith from Portugal to teach them how to do it.
God damn the arguments this title caused was some of the most asinine I've ever seen. I guess it's partly the fault of the WN/LN for not explaining things more thoroughly but still, there are faggots who can make an argument out of anything.
stuff like that happens all the time in many threads
just suddenly if you follow a "general" thread you'll see them pop up and somehow associate average stupidity with a certain title
Yeah, I was actually wondering about that, myself. My guess is that they didn't need the other functions of their Legendary Weapon as much, because they just needed to kill things.
I did like the tanuki becoming an adult. That was actually quite cute. Fiora is kind of boring, mostly because she takes up SO MUCH SPACE.
One slave-raising arc was enough, thank you very much.

From what i understand from this
>Although I didn't know what ‘Special Effect: Shield of Needle (Small)’ could actually do, I was able to acquire an offensive shield, which is far more important. This is just the beginning. From now on I'll be able to attack too if I kept absorbing items which are connected with this shield type category.
He can focus on getting the offensive shield but he didn't have time since the wave was coming. Did he just simply forget?
Isn't that quite effective by itself? Like, making the enemy hit the Cerebus shield is pretty good at fucking people up.
Couldn't he do something like - I don't know - activate a shield with a poison or fire aura, then just grab on to the enemy until it dies? He has a few shields like that, right?
Or, hit an enemy with an Air Strike Shield with a poison element? Or just dump Shield Prison on someone, and turn all the shields into burning/poisonous/Cerebus shields?
He did that in chapter 36 I think, against the bandits.
He used "change shield", first he used air shield to move it forward and then he changed it to porcupine, paralyzing the bandits.
isn't that the shield that poisons on counter attack, or was that viper? they're probably similar
either way they don't add to his attack power
counter attacks can be countered by not attacking, instead focusing on those who can actually deal damage
Make him have a Flame shield
This card was shit
Oh man, I forgot how terrible early Yugioh cards were. In today's rocket tag environment, those stats are laughable.
It's odd that he doesn't have, like, a Blade Shield or something. The Paladin's Aura of Thorns in Diablo 2 would wreck you bad, for example: Most tanks in MMOs now have the whole - "You have to hit me, and you get punished for hitting me." - powerset, too.
Tanuki ruined everything.
Her Tanukis absorb all the hate.
Not to mention, he have restriction that he CAN'T use any weapon.
>Slam with shield? Good.
>Can't kill monster? Bad.
>Astronomically low attack status compared to another hero? Worse.
>Become shit character that can't do any shit done and become laughingstock? Worst
For there to be healing there must be suffering.
Picked up because of tanooki's tanookis, stayed fro everything.
Literally god tier girl.
All hail the tanooki
>This bit might not be of any worth, but the one who sold out the accessory merchant to the bandits was apparently a merchant union member. It seems that after that act he was excommunicated from the union.
Oh wow. Harsh.
>the one who sold out the accessory merchant
I missed that bit there. I mistakenly thought that that part was told as an additional info by the author as a trivia and the accessory merchant was the one excommunicated because the union somehow found out about his true nature.
Damn I need to sleep.
Hey guys how's it goin.
Amazing work man. I've only done what you're doing once, removing the text from the bottom part of pic related and that was a complete bitch.
Doing with that much text covering it must be a nightmare.
tl anon here, going to take a break today before I go on a translating spree tmr so i'll only be releasing one chapter today
It's the weekend, I might try helping a bit. How many you plan on doing?
I'll be doing as much as I can, as fast as possible. I'll be checking /a/ every now and then so if you plan on translating make sure to announce which chapter you're going to be doing.
RIP not translated chapters.
>i'll only be releasing one chapter today
I don't think you understand how unreasonable it is we're even getting a chapter every single day, let alone multiple
The chapters in this story are really short compared to other LNs though. I mean a normal LN volume has something like 4-5 chapters + prologue/epilogue maybe. Shield Hero has like 25 or so chapters per volume.
All right, I'll do that. I'll check the next few chapters and see what'd work best with my...minimal knowledge of moonrunes. I basically just get the romaji, use my basic knowledge of Japanese, and write down what sounds right. Pretty simple. I was the guy who did the first bits of 33, if you're the one who did the rest.
Just started reading the manga today. Tanuki girl is seriously bad for my heart. Glad to see people translating the web novel, too. Thanks to all the anons working on this.
Now I have some catching up to do for the weekend.
Anon you are spoiling us.
B-but I actually enjoy translating......
Reminder that in the Spear Hero gaiden story, shieldbro never buys Raphtalia. She died alone and in agony inside that cage with shieldbro none the wiser.
Even though its true, this is just aimed to stir up shit.
Can we take a minute to appreciate that Tsukkumu's are the way of the future and the only reason to use an online reader?
I don't know why I love this shit so much it's fucking funny seeing the page blow up.
At least this time I dont have to draw any eyes
Not that eye mind...
Oh boy, dinnertime
I read the Manga a few days ago. These were some of the best parts of it.
sorry, im a bit tired. There was an image of cursed shield naofumi with no background on here a couple threads ago, Ideally a nice version for BG would be nice if there is one floating around.
I like that a lot, if only it was closer to this.
Oh, you mean my shitty edit of it? I can make a better one if you want.
Give yourself more credit, i think its done pretty well.
And I would love if you were to extend the back and red into the background similar to the orange and green in the pic I posted above. with him in the center. Or if you have any better ideas, feel free to do it. :D
So how does Raphtalia's
godlyAtk stat work in the end of the series? Does she just one-shot anything with the slightest attack?
Pretty much had to make the shadows on her left hand
by hand, and trying to guess the right shape and position. Hope it doesnt look weird, at least.
But yeah, here she is.
im going to scavenge for food now, hopefully theres a chocolate somewhere here
For the anon who posted Master of monster in this thread or the last, chapters 6 and 7 are both corrupt and only display half the pages it should. Not all to sure why but just pointing it out.
Heres the sauce for those who will enviably ask for it.
"The Feudal lord here is an outrageous bastard."
I mutter while looking at the town. The gaurd's expression changes.
"do not speak ill of the lord! I will punish you"
oh man this is going to be delicious.
Guys thanks to this thread I started reading the series and found it quite good. There is a way I can help in some way?
I use to do manga scanlation as an editor, are there scripts or something flying around? I could help doing some editing. I will look for the raws and see what its their state but I would appreciate if someone could point out a place toi download them since is being years since I used Share or Perfect dark to get raws.
Also currently I am unemployed so I could pump up chapters with quite an ease.
It's really generic and uninteresting; male characters truly are the worst. This doesn't offer me anything that Hero and Booby Demon didn't. It's just another dumb male protagonist being a man in a played-out macho aesthetic for dumb teens and lonely old men that want to self-insert.
I would have no problem with male protagonists if they stopped writing the same hypercompetent male hero over and over again. Kirito, Hachiman, Oniisama, Inaho, Tate, Hero... it's the same aesthetic, the same target audience, the same story. Why can't they do something different?
You aren't even trying to be subtle with this trolling.
I'm an idiot. At first glance, I though that dragon was some sort of strange quadruped.
I feel like its part of the usual proceedings
We don't have enough hypercompetent male heroes, sadly. Most main characters are still the betamax type. I'd rather have a lot more competent guys than satellite male protagonists.
Shield Bro and Guts should join the same party.
>he doesn't know nip
>tfw I don't either ;_;
Don't worry, one day we'll all know Moon
20-21*. Isn't that shield from when he fought the dog back in the mines?
Yeah, ln/manga only. There's an extra chapter in the ln right before chapter 16 of the web novel.
Just make it wobble more and speed up the whole process.
Is it better now? Thanks for the tip btw
More wobbling in more varied directions and make it faster still. I can't tell a difference, other than the color inversion seeming slightly quicker, and that's only comparing them almost side by side.
>First one at 0.1 delay
>Second at no delay
>This at 0.03 delay
lel I think I made it worse
"Only the head changed and it's become impossible to live. So we bring what little wealth we have into this Merlot Mark country and try to live."
"I feel sorry for your king~! I hope everyone the best. Anyway, I'm hungry so who do I blame?"
"Shut up you bird! My owner's spirit will be doubted!"
(Tl note: Owner's spirit? ???????????????????)
I scold Firo for opening another's wounds.
It seems recently she has become unable to read the atmosphere, and has is foul-mouthed.
"I wonder who she is learning from......"
Raphtalia watches and comments under her breath.
Oh shit, I can't stop laughing. My sides killing me.
The second thing he taught to his kid is to kick someone's crotch when see that person as a manner.
I started to doubt this guy's psych, and I'm worried what will he do if he has a kid.
I was listening to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfpESuES3m0 as I read the majority of chapter 8/wn 22.
Holy shit, these shit heroes
Wondering now how bad swordshit will mess things up
It seems that my true identity was revealed, but because the small neighbouring country was saved from famine, the residents weren't bothered by it.
Additionally, due to the large amount of medical herbs acquired here It seems an epidemic was prevented in the east district after we decided to sell there.
>Is jewing, healing, known as saint by people
Shield Jesus Confirmed
>Naofumi: the father figure you wish you didn't have but are stuck with anyway.
Raphtalia: it's a miracle she's such a good girl.
Firo: See this big fat bird? She's going to eat the world once she's big enough. You don't just give eggs to anyone without thinking of the consequences.
I'm thinking this is gonna be a good soundtrack to play once he uses the Wrath Shield. Or another Berserk track.
I had this playing on my mind when Tanuki defended and then conforted Shieldbro after the duel with Spearfag. It made me teary-eyed, really.
Im a sucker for music box songs in emotional moments
It is kind of scary. Queen Philorea apparently don't stop growing which is why Firo is still a huge glutton.
She also becomes immortal later so she's going to live forever and keep growing forever.
In the 100 year later ending apparently she says she no longer fits inside buildings in bird form.
