Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 10 is set to release worldwide tomorrow, continuing after a very pleasing Episode 9. Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 10 will hopefully uphold this standard of quality, with Filo now being returned to the group.
Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 10 will most likely not see Raphtalia get returned to the group as well, but it should at least show significant progress to that end. The season has four episodes left, so fans can expect Raphtalia to be rescued sometime in the latter half of those remaining installments.
Follow along as this article breaks down the available release information for Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 10, and speculations as to fans' expectations.

Release date and time, where to watch
Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 10 is set to air in Japan on the evening of Wednesday, June 8. The episode will release simultaneously on the Crunchyroll and Funimation streaming services, thanks to Simulcast agreements.
However, in light of Crunchyroll’s recent acquisition of Funimation, it’s unknown how much longer the latter will be streaming the series. While both of them will presumably stream the remaining episodes, we do not have any concrete confirmation of the same.
The episode will be available to watch at each of these times in the corresponding time zones:
- Pacific time: 6AM PDT
- Central time: 8AM CDT
- Eastern time: 9AM EDT
- British time: 2PM GMT
- Indian time: 2:30PM IST
- European time: 3PM CEST
- Australian time: 6:30PM ACDT
- Philippines time: 9PM PHT
- Japanese time: 10PM JST
What to expect (speculative)
Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 9, entitled Katana Hero, will build off the tease given in the final moments of the previous episode. With such a title, it’s almost certain that the enigmatic Katana Hero will play a role in some way. We might get information regarding the Hero, or they might make an appearance on the episode.
Beyond this, the episode will most likely show Naofumi’s group continuing their preparations to rescue Raphtalia and Glass’ group from the apparent snowy mountain prison they’re in. The two parties were confirmed to be in the same place in the prior installment, thanks to Raph-chan and Chris’ shikigami abilities and powers.
It’s also worth mentioning that Naofumi’s party is currently wanted for their abduction of Filo from the local animal shop. Any consequences that stem from this will most likely appear and be resolved in the upcoming episode.
Additionally, the episode could spend a significant amount of time focusing on Raphtalia’s life as a prisoner, possibly even showing her meeting Glass’ party. If this does end up happening, it’s highly likely that the four of them will begin planning a breakout as Naofumi’s party plans their rescue, break-in operation.
A third potential addition to the episode could be a quick shift in perspective to focus on Kyo. The overarching antagonist of the season hasn’t been seen for quite some time, making Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 10 a prime opportunity for reappearance.
