Better than Volume one

I listened to the first volume and the voice acting was for a better word kinda poor and it took away from the overall experience. But In this one the narrator took the criticism to heart and made it 10 times better. Good Job 👍

Loved this story! I actually own this in its manga form but listening to it as an audio book as well brings a new level of excitement to this story.

Look forward for more.

I am happy that narratior is going to do more audiobook for The Rising of Shield Hero series. I encourage him to do more If he ever want do continue.

I love the family Dynamics of Naofumi, Raphtalia, and Filo it was always my favorite aspect of the series. Naofumi has to clean up the wreckless Three heroes mess as always he despite what people think of him. Naofumi is true to himself as Shield Hero.

Thank you bring this Light Novel to life, Kurt Kanazawa.

We get two stories in 1

Not only do we get to continue our main story that some of us may already know from the anime, but we also get a new story of the character development of our narrator Kurt. His female voices certainly improved the most, but so too has his male voices. Originally it was a bit hard to tell the difference between two male characters but this time I could hear a solid change when he swapped between two male characters. Keep up the good work!

He fixed the voices!

the story is great but that was never really the issue. the narrator however has improved vastly since the previous volume. he no longer makes all the females sound like the goose from kung-fu panda.

Performance improved greatly from volume 1

Kurt seems to have taken our constructive criticism to heart. His voices and performances have improved alot when compared to volume 1.

Great story ! But I am a fan

I love the story of shield hero and I’m grateful it’s being adapted in to audio book format. I personally feel Kurt did a better job narrating vol 2 over vol 1 but there are still a few moments where distinguishing which character he was reading lines for. I would give examples but I’ve listen to this over the course of a week 😅. Great job Overall, hope the time between this vol and number 3 is shorter than it was this time around.
