   My personal opinion
I love this series and the fact that it is the light novel version. The reason is because of the fact that there is more detail in the manga, as the manga glosses over a lot of situations or skips some together. If the manga is important, try a manga reader app, but I strongly advise buying the light novels, so that you get the full story. I have read both and can safely say that they compliment each other. If you want to go with one version only, then choose this. Thanks for your time and hope that I helped you out.
   Typos and Overall Poor Writing
Shield Hero is as a series a pretty good read. The book is, however, written very poorly. Either the transition from a light novel to a web series caused a huge deterioration in writing quality. The translator for this file didn 't put much effort into making the writing flow. They were especially careless with citation marks. The other chapter at the end was a pleasant surprise, but I would not support it strictly unless it was strictly necessary to buy the author. Instead, read the novel on the web. It is essentially the same story up to this volume, and is better written.

Your new kid will love you as they kick the playboy away, because it will never heal and your old kid will stay by your side.

All I can say is that it was worth it, I enjoyed the story fully and with the exception of a few minor mistakes in the text, the story sucked my in. I highly recommend anyone read it.
It was fun and exciting, but it was not nearly as good as Volume 1. It just felt like missing something, like I was not really immersed into it. However, I find myself very much looking forward to reading Volume 3! Good luck! ''
   Love the series
Like vol.1, there were several typos. It felt like they just ripped the online translations and shipped it to print.
   Unreadable at times
I know LN authors usually dump this stuff in hopes to eventually hit it big when it is picked up as anime, but man is this bad. At times it is unreadable and the headache causing because of the poor translation. On top of that, the dialog structure is criminally bad if there are more than 2 characters talking good luck telling who says what when. On top of that, the dialog in this volume really suffers from LN tendencies to show and never to tell. Why write an actual narrative to make you feel something when the authordialog can only tell you how you should feel. The only reason it is not a 1 star is that I like the concept.
   Read this alongside the anime
I love the Shield hero anime, but I even love the books. The world and characters get a little more fleshed out than in the anime, which I love personally.
   Probably the low point of the series.
While the writing of the first volume is far from perfect, you can forgive it most often due to the intraining nature of the story. Volume 2, however, falls immediately into an immediate backsliding of the characters, for me to take away much of the power of the rather nice ending to volume 1. We also introduce a new party member, who has a promised nature of this world, but we end up being a hero and replacing raphtalia as the designated loli. The spacing of the waves across a month continues to feel like a mechanism to create a super easy set of actions and allow the story to avoid much character development.
