Naofumi Iwatani, an easygoing Japanese youth, was summoned into a parallel world along with three other young men from parallel universes. They are selected to become the world’s Cardinal Heroes and fight inter-dimensional hordes of monsters called Waves. Each of the heroes was respectively equipped with their own legendary equipment when summoned. Naofumi happened to receive the Legendary Shield, the sole defensive equipment. Meanwhile, the other heroes received a sword, a spear, and a bow, weapons meant for the attack. Unlike the other heroes who are fully supported by the kingdom and gain several strong allies each, Naofumi’s luck turns to the worse. His single companion revealed to be the kingdom’s Princess, betrays him, steals all his belongings, and leaves him devoid of all assistance and supplies. Also, falsely accuses him of sexually assaulting her.
He is mocked by the nobility and shunned by everyone from his fellow Heroes to peasants. Naofumi is forced to train as a hero alone while working to make ends meet. This will continue until he buys from a slave trader a young tanuki demi-human girl named Raphtalia. An egg hatches into a bird-like monster whom he names “Filo”. Both of them quickly grow into adulthood and becoming powerful warriors under his care. They slowly gain the trust and gratitude of the people with their heroic actions. Naofumi and his companions work together to carry out their mission as saviors of the world. They soon unravel the mystery of the Waves and Naofumi deals with his inner darkness.
