Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari Summary

The Four Heroes are a group of ordinary men from modern-day Japan summoned to the kingdom of Melromarc to become its saviors. Melromarc is a land ravaged by waves of disaster that repeatedly ravaged the land and brought calamity upon its citizens for centuries. The four heroes are each given a sword, spear, bow and shield to defeat these waves. Naofumi Iwatani, an otaku, suffers from the curse of being the "Hero of the Shield". Armed with only a measly shield, Naofumi is despised and ridiculed by his fellow heroes and the people of the kingdom for his weak offensive skills and lackluster personality.

When the heroes have resources and comrades to train with, Naofumi sets out with Malty Melromarc, the only person willing to train by his side. However, he is soon betrayed by her and falsely accused of taking advantage of her. Naofumi is then severely discriminated against and hated by the people of Melromarc for something he didn't do. With a raging storm of pain and distrust in his heart, Naofumi begins his journey to strengthen himself and his reputation. Later, however, the difficulty of being alone sets in, so Naofumi buys a dying half-human slave named Raphtalia to accompany him on his travels. As the waves close in on the kingdom, Naofumi and Raphtalia must fight for the kingdom's survival and protect the people of Melromarc from their bleak future.
