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.

It is not that great. It starts out interesting, but quickly loses steam and switches to a fairly slow-paced uneventful mode. The visuals are fairly typical and do not exactly shine, backgrounds aren't that great, however there are at least two nice voice actresses, which voice side characters.

In greater details.

Story: 5/10

The source material for this work isn't bad but isn't stellar either (I used to read it long time ago till it sort of fizzled out). There was a great potential here for some sort of conspiracy or political play, but it isn't realized because the world and characters aren't fleshed out with read more

Genjitsu yuusha is nice by all means , but
Just to fulfill the isekai checklist it had to make that same mistake
Add a harem,

Now the harem genre is one of my favorites don't get me wrong i (WE) love it and it has its own charms but we can all agree that if deathnote had a harem it would really out of place and weird that is what happens in realist hero as well we have all the political back and forth and the smarts and all that but then there is multiple girls fawning on him for no ahem ahem “realistic” reason .The read more

I'll get straight to the point: (NO SPOILERS)

If you love Log Horizon, like incredibly logical and somewhat unconventionally thinking character, enjoyed Tycoon games as a kid, and have been looking for a more mature take on the isekai genre, stop reading and go watch this anime.

Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki is basically Country Tycoon the Anime, the show where we can vicariously rule a nation through our main character Kazuya once every week.

You’re going to find this incredibly boring if you’re not into smart characters using their intellect to shape the world around read more

Watching "Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki" felt like watching a trash Sunday night TV Show where every single episode ends up with the main character finding something, but it doesn't show the viewer right away, but promises to do it in the next episode. That's some Bollywood smart-ass tactics I can say. Yea that's how I just see this anime. I Have seen like 6 episodes and I can already say that the story goes exactly nowhere, the characters are so generic you can barely get attached to any of them. First of all you have the main characters who everyone thinks that he is read more
