Ladies and gentlemen, it’s finally happening! Maple from BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense will finally team up with Naofumi from The Rising of The Shield Hero! This is part of an upcoming team-up between BOFURI’s smartphone game Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu. ~Line Wars!~ and The Rising of the Shield Hero TV anime.
Unfortunately, they did not reveal any further details for this upcoming mobile game collab. But the staff did promise to reveal more information about the collaboration’s contents in the days to come.
There is actually a huge connection between the two franchises… other than the main characters using shields. BOFURI’s Yuumikan and Shield Hero’s Aneko Yusagi both serialised their light novels via Shousetsuka ni Narou. Kadokawa would also publish their works as light novel books.
