    The ln and anime better change that shitty ending


    • Dan Kuroto says:

      What’s the ending for ln ? I didnt find the translation for ln


      • henja13 says:

        YEA YEA tell me please what is the difference between the ending of WEB novel and LIGHT novel i know it deviates quite a bit in the middle because ive read manga and i saw it is completely different after calimara island so if you know pelase answer me :))))


    • AnimeMania says:

      There are some major chages in the ln for the most part just new characters and a new arcs, the latest volume, 13, will be releasd in english on december. There are only 19 vol so far and looking at the cover from the 19 vol it seems that there are some major changes to the story you should probably start from vol 5 or 6 this is also up to the manga so if you want you can read that first and then change to there although i would recomend reading the manga till rishia gets kicked out of itsukis group and joins nafumi cause after that there apears to be a difference between the manga and light novel not a big difference but minor they just shortend a scene whic was way better in the ln, but yea for the most part i really reccomend reading the ln is way more organize amd you will enjoy it. I think you will be able to find the translation if you search up tate no yuusha ln pdf or the rising of the shield hero ln pdf if not heres a link
      I reccomend having the MEGA app if you are on iphone i haven tested android but for pc it should redirect you to the translations

        Ok so i’m lost , I’m reading the WN version and I can only see 15 Volumes for a total of 379 Chapters , without the Special Ones . Also no matter how much or where I search the only Volume of LN that is Available is Volume 1 with 23 Chapters , 2 Extras and 1 Epilogue , NOTHING MORE THAN THAT . Where exactly do you people read the LN , you say that the LN is different from Manga at some point do you mean WN ??? The link you provided also said that the translations were based on the Web Novel , not the Light Novel . Also in case there is some problems with the Volumes can someone confirm just how many Chapters does the entire thing have and also tell me if there is a difference between the LN and WN ?


      • ................. says:

        I just realized you’re one of the translators , Thank You for translating this masterpiece and for answering my questions , I’d really like to buy the LN but for the moment I don’t have any way of getting it in my country due to certain circumstances , even so I was able to read the WN thanks to you guys . I will surely buy the LN volumes if I ever get the chance. I also hope you continue your work :)


  4. Gen says:

    Sorry to bother, just came across the site, is there any other way to read the Baka-Tsuki chapters? They don’t have them there anymore.


  5. middledangername says:

    How come both you guys and NU are not listing part 3 of The Valentines of the Shield Hero?


  6. Does anyone knows where I can find the translation of the valentine and white day short stories? For some reason it seems like no one translated them even though it has been 2 years since the epilogue was translated.


  7. kalou kalou says:

    wtf the valentine chapters are nothing to do with valentine its really dissapointing plz continue till at least ending of valentine arc

    Who reads the manga? Does the manga follows the novel closely? I’m currently at chapter 35 (manga’s latest update). It was after the class up and where they met up new characters. I only remembered Sonny, lol. I was wondering if I should start reading at chapter 82? But everything in chapter 82 is confusing. Lmao. If I don’t read from the top, am I going to miss a lot?


  10. Yernero says:

    When should i read the christmas special? It seems to be referenced a lot around chapter 140.


  11. imryf says:

    shit. awesome. ty. >>> thats what on my mind.


  12. DarknessWolf says:

    Well thanks for the chapters! :)
    It had been long I guess

  15. Zachary Lee says:

    So I’m very confused it appears there’s alot more story to this ln but it’s done? Like if I go to the wiki there are 19 vol and still ongoing does anyonle else know anything about this?


  16. Zachary Lee says:

    What’s the difference between web novel and light novel?


  17. JP says:

    so the web novel is finished?


  18. JB says:

    I accidentally ran across this LN on your page while reading Sevens…I have been waiting on the god awful slow manga updates on this forever and here you have the whole LN translated. I would hug you if I could. Bless you sir.


  19. RaiRai26 says:

    What chapter is the manga currently on the novel version


  20. HuNted says:

    So from where can i continue the light novel from the latest manga chapter(43)? A rough chapter estimate would be pretty cool^^


    • aduckfromnarnia says:

      It perfectly fits in the beginning of the Cal mira island arc, though it might be faithful to the light novel, for the Web novel the whole stuff with the hero of the scythe comes wayyyyy later. The story line will be slightly different, but there will be 400 some more chapters to read. BTW the side stories all happen after the main storyline.


  21. Pels says:

    Is this novel completed? and is the translation finished as well?


  22. Raven says:

    Who’s the reyak person. All their links no longer exist.

    I’m not sure where to put a post / request like this, but it appears there are still at least 15 chapters that haven’t been translated (Full Valentine arc and “the White day” Arc. I binged the whole WN and would love to find translations for those. Of course compensation can be provided. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.


  26. Tgxxx says:

    There seems to be a problem with Chapter 184: Purification. It was originally a Baka-Tsuki article.


  27. webside7 says:

    are you ever gonna finish this WN


    • aduckfromnarnia says:

      Actually, he’s already finished the main story. And then he went off to finish one of the side stories. Then he left the White Day Of The Shield Hero and Valentines Of The Shield hero to Kookie and Hell5atan/RebelGoRound and left to translate other things. I think Hell5atan died because he stopped translating, I think RebelGoRound is working on something else, and I know kookie has rough machine translated stuff on her profile but if you wanted more side stories you’re out of look. The main series, however, is completely finished


  28. Boi says:

    Is this the web or light novel?


  29. wi Go says:

    What happened to the white day and valentines translations? It seems that the other translators dropped them but did you just lose interest to translate them yoraikun?


  30. hezat says:

    Hi yoraikun, been a while, I was wondering if you’d read the published Light novel of shield bro in Japanese and if so on how difficult you’d say it is to read for a novice ?
    And if you’d read the “pro” translated version and what you thought about it

    Always having a tank ready for you !


  31. Mio says:

    There are blank pages where the chapters should be a few chapters before 190. Namely, the ones by Reyak which have no content whatsoever.


  32. Chiang Lee says:

    This is okay. However, Pastebin’s text are known to be infamously small. Have you found another format?


  33. Mog says:

    RIP everything that was on baka-tsuki, they scrubbed the English version of Shield Hero. there wouldn’t happen to be other places that have the stuff baka-tsuki deleted? everything I’ve found so far just links back to them, which is disappointing but understandable.


  34. rpp k13 says:

    thanks for chapter


  35. Alé Santos says:

    Most of the early chapters no longer work. If I find another place that they can be read I’ll notify future readers. Not having much luck as of yet.

  37. Şamil Cabıoğlu says:

    any news about unfinished side stories. I heard it goes up to 450+ according to baka tsuki…


  38. Cross Zero says:

    can someone tell me till which chapter volume 13 covers?


  39. Michał says:

    I wanted to say that the chapters translated by Bakahou are not available.
    Anyone has contact with him?
    Because his translation page has expired.


  40. Alt says:

    Where did the white day side story go?


  43. Ozymandias96 says:

    Is this a translation for the LN or the WN?


  44. Hiraite Neko says:

    The Steins;Gate arc title got me real good. Genius!! 😂


    • MCDRA says:

      Just take a moment to appreciate the fact that this guy actually went into the effort of linking the title to a video displaying the reference itself


  45. DNAnime says:

    I’d like to thank all those involved with the translation of this series after all this time, I still go back and read it.
