The Rising of the Shield Hero

An anime in the Isekai genre. The hero Naofumi is transported to another world as one of four cardinal heroes: Sword, Spear, Bow, and Shield (Naofumi). The twist is, among the four heroes, he is despised and deeply handicapped by an inability to attack with weapons. Despite this, he must help the world overcome wave after wave of invading monsters.

The show does a great job of making the hero  deal with so much conflict and conspiracy-driven derision, that you feel compelled to keep watching until he overcomes his outward and inner struggles.
