Finally things are starting to pick up a bit in season 2. We get some background on the spirit tortoise and discover a message(in japaneese) that seems to have been left by a former cardinal hero. And then we run into the antagonists from season 2. The heroes from the land of the waves. I don't know what to make of this so far but its pretty obvious that they are here because of something to do with the spirit tortoise.

This is a much better ending for episode 4. Things so far have just been too cut and dry. The mystery, intrigue, and worldbuilding have been missing. This anime has never been about the action. So centering the first 3 episodes on a big battle with the spirit tortoise was never that interesting, especially because its presented as some big natural disaster. We need interesting antagonists that don't like the shield hero or are actively working against him. Not monsters with no personality, motives or agency.
