The events of the series took place in a parallel dimension called Melromarc, which is attacked by the Dark Forces. As a result of long-term attacks, the dark side broke the balance and confidently leads the battle.
Since the inhabitants of Melromarc cannot save their own world on their own, they have to look for heroes in other dimensions. Naofumi Iwatani, as well as three more warriors comes to help the inhabitants of Melromarc.
During the transfer to this world, each of the characters was endowed with protective equipment. Naofumi Iwatani, an otaku, becomes cursed with the “Shield Hero.” Because of this, people began to call him the weakest of heroes, because of the weapons he received only a shield.
Unlike other heroes who are fully supported by the Kingdom and receive several powerful allies, luck is getting less after his only companion, Princess Malty, betrays him, steals all his things and leaves him without any help, and then falsely accuses him in rape.
Avoided by everyone, from the king to the peasants, Naofumi has to train like a hero alone, working to make ends meet, until he buys a young raccoon girl named Raphtalia and the egg from which the bird appears and he calls it Filo. Companions quickly grow up and become powerful warriors under his care. Naofumi Iwatani and his companions win the trust and gratitude of people, and also work hard to fulfill their mission of saving the world, revealing its deepest secrets.
