Aneko Yusagi is the author of The Rising of the Shield Hero. It was originally created as a Web Novel on the user-generated content site Shōsetsuka ni Narō.

The series is divided into Arcs on the site that are somewhat equivalent to its counterpart Volumes in the Light Novel that was acquired for print publication by Media Factory in September 2015. That said, differences between the Web Novel and the Light Novel begin to appear more frequently beginning with Volume 4 of the Light Novel, with some volumes being completely Light Novel exclusive such as Volume 8 and Volume 9.

The Web Novel is considered to be the rough draft of the series and had changes of its own during the course of development. One such example of this was during the Final Arc.  Due to the original ending poor reception from the readers, it was changed to its current version. These endings are referred to as "Version 1" and "Version 2" by the readers of the Web Novel.
