    Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki

    260082.jpg

    * Based on a comedy fantasy light novel series written by Dozeumaru and illustrated by Fuyuyuki.

    "O, Hero!" With that cliched line, Souma Kazuya found himself summoned to another world and his adventure--did not begin. After he presents his plan to strengthen the country economically and militarily, the king cedes the throne to him and Souma finds himself saddled with ruling the nation! What's more, he's betrothed to the king's daughter now...?! In order to get the country back on its feet, Souma calls the wise, the talented, and the gifted to his side. Five people gather before the newly crowned Souma. Just what are the many talents and abilities they possess...?! What path will his outlook as a realist take Souma and the people of his country down?

    Source: J-Novel Club

    Genre(s): Fantasy(isekai)

    __________________

    Three episodes in, this is pretty entertaining. Summoned to be sold for short term debt relief, Souma decides to fix the kingdom's underlying problems instead (and because he doesn't trust being shipped off to another country; healthy skepticism). Souma is looking to really Sim City the heck out of this isekai world. It reminds me of the earlier parts of Slime isekai, before the battling took front and center. I like how he prioritizes surrounding himself with capable people instead of being the sole savior of this world with his superior Japanese knowledge. Definitely check it out.

    If that didn't sell you, the King and ear cleaning Queen are kawaii...

    I'm watching this show as well...

    simply because I want to see what he will do to enhance the quality of living there.
    I have to say though.. that other show with the female demon king and hero teaming up and falling in love was better than this so far.
    (can't remember the name though... "the demon king is my wife"? Or something
    But we aren't far in, so who knows.

    I feel like this show does pamper a whole lot more to the "I'd kick so much as in medieval times"-crowd.
    It reminds me a bit of Gate in that regard, actually.

    Guy talks to an elf, who lived for who knows how long in a forest and their ancestor's ancestors did the same thing
    "Do you even thin bros" - "WHAT IS THAT, OH MY GAWD, DO ME RIGHT NOW IN FRONT OF EVERYONE MY LORD"

    And don't get me started on that "prime minister in black"

    It's basically going in the same direction as Slime.. and I sure as hell hope I'm wrong.
    The townbuilding stuff in Slime was interesting for like 1 episode, before he basically got everything for free to create a early-modern japanese city.

    I was hoping for more explanations of what he's actually DOING. Like how Dr. Stone is constantly teaching you science.

    But so far, the show mostly handwaves it. He does mountains of paperwork with no explanation of what it actually does, other than it's just vaguely fixing things.

    I'm enjoying the one where the goddess thinks he's ugly and dumped him with the monsters.

    The girl orcs look like Miss Piggy.

    Yeah... but the little part where he used the national treasures etc was pretty cool. But that's what I want to see, mostly.

    If you want detail overload on nation building and technological advancement, you should probably be reading the Release that Witch Chinese light novel.

    Which, for the record, I do no read, but the LN readers never stfu in the manhua comments and reviews about how much better it is. It's a LN. They're all badly written.

    Right, but he's had, like, 2 of those moments in 3 episodes.

    Dr. Stone does that shit, like, 5 times an episode.

    That ep felt like fanservice introduction for the many pairs possibilities...

    All the things I really like to do are either illegal, immoral, or fattening. And then: Golf.

    Being able to communicate with the demons (and them subsequently being sentient) does change the entire dynamic of the war, however. I'm actually surprised that a cliffhanger-bait ear whisper from last episode actually panned out into something interesting.
