Our hero becomes known as The Shield Hero, and the mission presented to the four legendary heroes, who wield a sword, a spear, a bow and a shield is to shake off the Waves of Catastrophe which bring chaos to the world. Naofumi was very excited to go on this big adventure along with his friends. However, several days after his departure, Naofumi was betrayed and lost both his money and position. Naofumi, who is now distrustful of others, goes to stop the waves with the employed slave girl Raphtalia…
