Here is a list of anime that we think are similar to Rising of the Shield Hero. The anime Rising of the Shield Hero, for example, is available on Crunchyroll and Netflix.
11. Deadman Wonderland (2011)
“Deadman Wonderland” isn’t that fantastic, but if you’re looking for something quick to see that is similar to “The Rising of the Shield Hero” in terms of violence and vulgarity, why not check it out?

10. Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka (2015)
The inclusion of ‘Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no Wa Machigatteiru Darou ka’ on this list may be questioned. Several factors contribute to this. The first similarity is the setting. The main difference between the two universes is that the protagonist of this anime has been living in his fantasy world for a long time.

9. Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest (2019)
“Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest” and “The Rising of the Shield Hero” share many similarities when it comes to the protagonist. A fantasy, video-game-like world opens up before them, entrapping them both. They are mocked and ridiculed at their infancy. They put in a lot of work and work their way through the ranks. Due to a similarity in tone, storyline, and protagonist, “Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest” is included on this list. This anime has not yet aired, so you may have to wait a few months for it to appear on television.
The main character of the anime, Hajime Nagumo, is a self-described Otaku who is known for staying up late to study for exams. Because of his closeness to Kaori, he is despised by his peers.

3. Grimgar: Ashes and Illusions (2016)
Isekai anime characters often find themselves in a fantasy world where they have magical talents and can use them to their advantage, becoming both strong and popular as a result of this. That is not the situation in Grimgar, however. It’s awful that so many young people find themselves in this situation in the first place. They have no idea who they are or what happened to them. They don’t even know what led them here in the first place. Their only recollection is of their own name. In order to survive in this world, one must have a job, and to do so, one must be employed. The military is the sole option for employment in the world. You’ll starve to death and be exposed if you don’t cut. It’s kill or be killed in this town.

2. Overlord (2015)
‘Overlord’ is one of the best-known works in the Isekai genre. MMORPGs are the focus of one of the most popular isekai anime series. The virtual reality game Yggdrasil is very popular.

1. Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! (2016)
A amusing, short-run animation is ‘Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!,’ which may be found on Crunchyroll. With 10 episodes, this first season of the anime clocks in at 23 minutes per episode. High school student Kazuma Satou is just like any other. A day after buying a game, he dies on the way home. His death, on the other hand, is pathetic and humorous rather than sad or harrowing. Instead of the traditional ‘heaven-hell’ judgment day, a beautiful goddess named Aqua gives Kazuma two options.
There are only two options left for him: go to paradise or be reborn as an imaginary character. Kazuma, of course, goes with option two. It’s a fantasy world, but not one you’d expect from a video gaming. As a matter of fact, it’s more like the real world, where you’ll have to do your share of work and earn your keep. It doesn’t end there, however. He picks the goddess herself as an ally, only to discover that she is of no value to him on his quest. The story follows Kazuma as he gets into all kinds of mischief in a fantastical universe.
