The king of Natra has fallen ill, leaving the only hope for his kingdom to his son, Prince Wein Salema Arbalest. Known to be capable and wise, he is the perfect candidate to become the prince regent. However, if the prince has anything to say about the matter, he would rather sell off the Kingdom of Natra to the highest bidder!

Since he wields the authority of the throne, no one can stop Wein from auctioning off the country and using the profits to retire in comfort. All he needs to do is raise the value of the small kingdom to maximize his gains. But whether Wein's grand plan will succeed remains to be seen, as his wit often surpasses even his own expectations—much to the benefit of the oblivious citizens of Natra.

Tensai Ouji is a way better rhetoric than Realist Hero. There, I've said it.

Honestly, I didn't even think that there was another work that could better refine the Realist side of things, and when Tensai Ouji by novelist Toru Toba dropped this season, I'm more than elated to say that more than Realist Hero finally having a legit competitor, the latter was a lot more heartful and soulful that kept me rather engaged than Dojyomaru's big-brained insanity of a drag on that has already spanned across 2 cours. Of course, this wasn't all without its drawbacks that hindered what could a better potential of a read more

Hmm, how to make a smart Main character interesting? Make him whine all the time?

“He is as interesting as a Wein(er)” ~ Secretary fujiwara.

This MC is the worst character in the entire season for me.

1)He predict things but they always go wrong but hell naw “He is the smartest”
2)” I am smort so I will cri but make sure to do the right thing anyhoo”~Weiner
3)any flahm/ninym insult just makes him seem like an immature child with a crown who heard a yo mama joke. He loses reason, and one day itll bite him in his ass.

if this was a comedy-only anime id forgive read more

There's probably a lot of strange thoughts going in your head as you read the title and premise of this show. After watching that preview, you may be asking yourself if someone capable as Wein can do the job as a ruler. Even if he is a genius, ruling a kingdom is no easy task. There's followers to control, rules to be upheld, and above all else, Wein has to keep his kingdom afloat on a tight budget. Sounds like a recipe for a lot of drama if you consider the stakes. That being said, I do believe this anime marked its potential and somehow read more

“A wise king never seeks out war. But he must always be ready for it.” - Odin from Thor (2011).

May contain spoilers.

There's not much I can say about the anime because the title is so long to read and particularly pretty hard to spell out from the get-go. I was a bit unsettled when the anime was adapted from a light novel, which usually spells out 'trash show', however, it is quite relieving to know that my assumptions were wrong and having thoroughly watched it, it's definitely better than what I originally expected, just not the type of high quality that you would get from read more
