It's one of the hottest anime right now, so let's rank the best quotes from The Rising of the Shield Hero, with the help of your votes. This fantasy isekai anime focuses on Naofumi Iwatani, an otaku who is summoned to an alternate world after opening a random book at the library.

One of the most memorable quotes from The Rising of the Shield Hero comes from the very first episode, when Naofumi realizes he has been used and betrayed by Malty: "I see. Joining me was just a ruse to destroy me right here. It was all a lie! The smiles she showed me, and her acts of kindness, were all fake!" This incident causes Naofumi to become instantly jaded about living in an alternate universe, where he thought things might be different from his normal life. Another powerful moment from Shield Hero is when Naofumi offers an ultimatum to his new offensive partner Raphtalia while they are training: "Listen well. If you can't fight, then I won't be able to look after you anymore. A wave that threatens the world's existence is coming soon. I have to get as stonrg as I can before it does. But defense is all I'm good for. I need someone to fight for me. If you can't do it, I'll get someone else."

    I Don't Think It's This Princess

    *Naofumi is reading the book* 

    "Each of the four heroes wield a characteristic weapon: a sword, a spear, a bow, or a shield."

    *Stops reading*

    "Uh, I'm pretty syre a shield is more like armor than a weapon. And where's the heroine, anyway? I don't think it's this princess. She seems kinda slutty."

          Look Around You

          Malty: Ladies and gentleman, I declare this an official duel between the Spear Hero and the Shield Hero, with the authority vested in me by the crown!
          Melty: Put your weapons away! I will not allow the heroes to fight among themselves. 
          Malty: W-what are you doing here?
          Melty: It's been far too long...sister. Please don't think your or the hero's privilege can cover up this mess. Spear Hero...look around you. Who would call a man that puts lives at risk a hero?
