Who is Kizuna Kazayama in The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2?

Warning: The following contains spoilers for the next anime storyline.

The last time the public watched the anime, Naofumi and his allies tracked down and confronted Kyo. The fight to the death with Kyo seemed to have ended in tragedy without Ost’s sacrificial actions. Naofumi destroys the Spirit Tortoise’s core and Kyo manages to escape to his own world while draining some of its energy.

Naofumi tries to follow Kyo’s retreat, but finds himself waking up in prison! Kyo managed to separate Naofumi and Rishia/Lecia from Raphalia, Filo and the others, leaving the pair trapped in a labyrinthine dimension. Even worse, Naofumi finds that his experience and skills have been reset to level 1!

Legendary hero Kizuna Kazeyama is introduced as the hunting hero, whose weapon limits her to harming monsters, not humans. Because of this limitation, she was captured and imprisoned in the labyrinth dimension.

Friends with Glass, Kizuna is also from the same second world. Kizuna disapproves of killing the heroes of the other world to save her home world and believes that the heroes are needed for another reason.

Unfortunately, anime fans will have to wait until The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 Episode 7 release date to see what happens next. Stay tuned!
