After the death of his grandfather, 19-year-old Kazuya Souma—an aspiring civil servant—is left all alone with no one to call family. Out of the blue, he is transported to the Elfrieden Kingdom, a small ailing country in another world, to be a "hero." An ongoing war with the demon army has put the entire world in peril, and Kazuya was summoned to aid in the conflict as an offering from Elfrieden to its allies.

Dissatisfied with being used as tribute, Kazuya decides to help the kingdom revamp its declining economy—not by way of adventuring or war, but through administrative reform. Abruptly declared the King of Elfrieden and betrothed to the princess, the "Realist Hero" Kazuya sets out to assemble a group of talented citizens who will assist him in his bureaucratic battles to get the kingdom back on its feet.

Ah, isekai. What was once a promising and delightful genre has now become the punching bag of the anime community. Riddled with memes about truck-kun, harems upon harems, stupidly overpowered perfect MCs, and ridiculously long names, it’s easy to see how this genre has become one of the stalest and over-farmed genres in all of anime.

But when I first read the description for Genjitsu, I was intrigued. I’ve always been a fan of realism and reform through policy, add in my economics minor which I’m studying for uni, and you’ve got me hooked on the concept of a hero saving a world through policy reform.

Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki, otherwise known as How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom is yet another isekai anime that focuses on politics and military aspects, with a touch of romance, and a few actions. As it is set in a period where kingdoms still exist and ongoing wars, the anime is considered medieval anime.

First of all, I’m not into isekai anime in general, but I decided to binge-watch Genjitsu anyways as it has my favorite seiyuu as the main heroine. I see Inori Minase, I click. Besides that, I had a feeling that Genjitsu has the potential to be a great read more

I need a herooooo!!! I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the ni, ight~!
He's gotta be a chick magnet
And he's gotta have no personality
And he's gotta be...a realist!?!?

Realist Hero might seem like it's not worth your time on the surface. The premise certainly sounds familiar. Man gets transported to a fantasy world and is tasked with helping it out with his knowledge and/or power. He meets many impressionable young girls along the way, including a knight and an animal girl loli, and they all fall for him for inexplicable reasons. If this storyline sounds bland and soulless to you, then read more

Y'know, I really wanted to believe that this show had at least a calibre of doing things "same same but different". But as it stands, Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki (or its short form "Realist Hero" I'll be referring to from now on) just sorta went downhill as the series progresses for me. Maybe you'd like it, but personally I have watched shows that have similar settings, but just executed a lot more better a.k.a Log Horizon. And also, while I appreciate that there's a variety of Isekai in the Summer season, there's hits and misses, and this sadly falls under the latter.
