Before watching here is the synopsis of How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom:
O, Hero! When Kazuya Souma is unexpectedly transported to another world, he knows the people expect a hero. 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.

Main Characters of How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom:
Kazuya finds himself with the throne of the Kingdom of Elfrieden and the hand of Liscia Elfrieden unexpectedly thrown at him. Now, king, Kazuya begins radical reforms in order to improve the standard of living in the kingdom. In the One Week War, Kazuya finds himself in a civil war between himself and Dukes Georg Carmine and Castor Vargas while also having to fight the Principality of Amidonia.
Through a series of military strategies, Kazuya emerges victorious and annexes Amidonia (although this was entirely unplanned on his part) to create the Unified Kingdom of Elfrieden and Amidonia, otherwise known as the Kingdom of Friedonia. He then forges a secret alliance with Empress Maria Euphoria of the Gran Chaos Empire. (相馬 一也 / ソーマ・カズヤ, Sōma Kazuya)
The crown princess of the Elfriedon Kingdom and Kazuya’s first fiancée. Liscia was at Kazuya’s side from the very beginning. Initially dissatisfied with the unannounced engagement, Liscia soon softens and eventually develops deep feelings for Kazuya.
Following the end of the One Week War, both Kazuya and Liscia affirm their love for each other, which results in the beginning of a series of nightly activities. Liscia is extremely tolerant of Kazuya’s philandering, even encouraging him to take more wives. However, she remains adamant about wanting to remain the first wife. (リーシア・エルフリーデン, Rīshia Erufurīden)
Daughter of the Chief of the Dark Elves of the God Protected Forest. Aisha Udgard is one of the five people discovered during the gathering of the Gifted People, the first policy Kazuya implemented upon his impromptu accession to the throne. She serves as Kazuya’s bodyguard and falls deeply in love with him during the landslide incident that struck her home.
Following the One Week War, Aisha becomes Kazuya’s second fiancée in recognition for her actions in that war concerning the hostile Principality of Amidonia. She is an utter glutton and Kazuya himself thinks of her as a cute pet. (アイーシャ・ウドガルド, Aīsha Udogarudo)
Also known as Lady Canaria of the Elfrieden Navy’s Marine force, Juna Doma is the granddaughter of Duchess Excel Walters who was sent to spy on Kazuya when he was first announced as the new King. She is one of the five people discovered during the gathering of the Gifted People.
She primarily aids Kazuya in both war and in peace by being the Prima Lorelei, Kazuya’s implementation of the concept of the Japanese idol. After falling in love with Kazuya, she is secretly made into his third fiancée with the reason for withholding the fact of their betrothal is the possibility of starting riots when the commonfolk discovers that the famous idol is being wed. (ジュナ・ドーマ, Juna Dōma)
The princess of the former Principality of Amidonia, Roroa Amidonia’s craftiness had forced Kazuya to not only take her as his fourth fiancée but also annex the entirety of Amidonian territory instead of just the capital in order to prevent the Turgis Republic and the Orthodox Papal State of Lunaria from getting their claws on the territory after the Principality had lost the war.
She has a very keen sense of economics and heads the Silver Deer, a private company whose public face is that of her acquaintance, Sebastian Silvadia.
Kingdom of Elfrieden Characters from How a Realist Hero Rebuilt The Kingdom:
- Hakuya Kwonmin
The Prime Minister of the Elfrieden Kingdom (now the Kingdom of Friedonia), Hakuya Kwonmin is one of the five people discovered during the gathering of the Gifted People. He serves as Kazuya’s right-hand man and has extremely great insight into the human psyche. He is casual friends with Jeanne Euphoria, the younger sister of Maria Euphoria, the Empress of the Gran Chaos Empire. (ハクヤ・クオンミン, Hakuya Kuonmin)
- Poncho Panacotta
The Minister of Agriculture and Forestry of the Elfriedon Kingdom, Poncho Panacotta is one of the five people discovered during the gathering of the Gifted People. Due to his vast knowledge of edible delicacies, he was a key player in ending the food shortages in the kingdom. Kazuya has given him the name Ishizuka. (ポンチョ・パナコッタ, Poncho Panakotta)
- Tomoe Inui
A member of the Mystic Wolf race and one of the five people discovered during the gathering of the Gifted People, Tomoe Inui possesses the rare ability to speak to all manner of beasts and animals. When it was revealed that she could speak to a demon, Kazuya immediately recognized her as extremely valuable and she was adopted by Albert and Elisha Elfrieden in order to shelter her, in the process, becoming Kazuya’s sister-in-law-to-be and Liscia’s adoptive sister. (トモエ・イヌイ, Tomoe Inui)
- Halbert Magna
Son of the noble house of Magna and member of the Elfrieden Army under Duke Georg Carmine. He met Kazuya when the king overheard an argument between Halbert and his childhood friend Kaede Foxia. Rather than being arrested for Lese Majeste, Halbert was instead transferred to the Forbidden Army, under Souma’s jurisdiction.
The two have since become friends, and Halbert is one of the few people permitted to disregard the rules of royal etiquette with Souma and carry on a casual conversation. In the aftermath of the Storm Crisis, it is revealed that he and Kaede have recently gotten engaged. He is also partnered with Ruby, a Red Dragon of the Star Dragon Mountain Range.(ハルバート・マグナ, Harubāto Maguna)
- Kaede Foxia
A member of the Mystic Fox race, Kaede is the daughter of the noble house of Foxia and childhood friend to Halbert Magna. She is an intelligent and talented young woman and a Mage in the Forbidden Army specializing in Earth Magic. She is currently serving as a staff officer under Captain Ludwin Arcs and is Hal’s direct superior, a situation that both pleases and irritates both of them at times.
Kaede cares deeply for Hal, and she spoke in his defense when the two first met Kazuya. In the aftermath of the Storm Crisis, it is revealed that she is engaged to Halbert when she chastises him for unthinkingly riding on Ruby’s back. (カエデ・フォキシア, Kaede Fokishia)
- Ludwin Arcs
Captain of the Royal Guard and Commander of the Forbidden Army under the direct command of Kazuya. He is a popular man in Kazuya’s royal court, but despite his looks and position, remains unattached. This is mainly due to rumors of financial trouble, as Ludwin is often seen eating the cheapest items on offer in the castle’s cafeteria.
He is childhood friends with Genia Maxwell, whom he regards with brotherly affection, despite her eccentricity. After Kazuya realizes Genia’s usefulness as an inventor, he and Liscia pressure Ludwin into an engagement with Genia, which he shyly accepts. (ルドウィン・アークス, Rudowin Ākusu)
- Genia Maxwell
Last of the noble house of Maxwell, and childhood friend of Ludwin Arcs. She is an eccentric genius and self-proclaimed Overscientist, specializing in the study of technology and artifacts discovered in the various dungeons found throughout the world. Her talents have been recognized by Kazuya, and the king is currently seeking to develop and implement several of her inventions for the good of the kingdom.
In order to ensure her safety and continued loyalty, Kazuya and Liscia convince Ludwin and Genia to get engaged, which Genia shows some minor affections for but states that she was certain that it would happen someday. (ジーニャ・マクスウェル, Jīnya Makusuweru)
- Excel Walter
A sea serpent who is over 500 years old at the time of Kazuya’s summoning. Despite her age, as a member of a “long-lived” race, she still has the appearance of a human in her mid-to-late twenties. She is the Admiral of the Kingdom of Elfrieden’s Navy, based in the Lagoon City of the Walter Duchy. She is the only one of the three duchies to publicly side with Kazuya during the Civil War.(エクセル・ヴォルター, Ekuseru Vorutā)
- Castor Vargas
A dragonewt and the General of the Kingdom of Elfrieden’s Air Force. He is a loyal and skilled warrior, yet is impulsive to action. As the head of the Vargas Duchy, he opted during the Civil War to have the Air Force take a neutral stance but publicly supported Duke Carmine with his personal members of the Air Force.
In his youth, he attempted to engage in romantic relations with Duchess Excel Walter but was rejected. He ended up marrying one of the duchess’s daughters, making him her son-in-law. Though defeated during the Civil War, Kazuya decided to spare Castor from execution for his treason. (カストール・バルガス, Kasutōru Barugasu)
- Carla Vargas
A dragonewt and daughter of Castor Vargas. She is Castor’s eldest child, also having a younger brother named Carl. She is friends with Liscia from their time together at the military academy. Despite Liscia’s attempts to use Carla’s connection to Castor, Liscia was unable to convince both to support Kazuya during the Civil War.
Carla sided with her father during the Civil War despite Castor’s attempt to disinherit her along with her mother and brother to spare her from potential treason charges. Kazuya decided to likewise spare Carla from execution for treason, forcing her to become one of the royal family’s maids instead. (カルラ・バルガス, Karura Barugasu)
- Georg Carmine
A lion-headed beastman and General of the Kingdom of Elfrieden’s Army. He was a loyal vassal, a widely respected tactician, and a mentor to Liscia. However, during the Civil War, he was the public opposition to Kazuya’s reign as king. It is revealed after being defeated during the Civil War that he actually supported Kazuya’s decisions, but was sacrificing himself to be a rallying point for Kazuya’s domestic enemies within the nobility of Elfrieden.
Though he would be sentenced to be executed for treason, Kazuya offered him “poisoned wine” to escape his sentence. Though officially dead, according to an Elfrieden news report, a leader of Kazuya’s personal spy network, the Black Cats, looks suspiciously like the “late” duke. (ゲオルグ・カーマイン, Georugu Kāmain)
- Albert Elfrieden
The previous king of Elfrieden before Kazuya and father of Liscia. He was regarded as a friendly, yet overall weak, king. In order to satisfy the demands of the Gran Chaos Empire for either supporting funds or a summoned hero, he orders the summoning which brought Kazuya to the world. After seeing Kazuya’s initial plans, he abdicates the throne to Kazuya and arranges for Liscia to be married to him. Albert married into the royal family through Elisha and thus is not technically the blood royal. (アルベルト・エルフリーデン, Aruberuto Erufurīden)
- Elisha Elfrieden
The previous king of Elfrieden before Kazuya and father of Liscia. He was regarded as a friendly, yet overall weak, king. In order to satisfy the demands of the Gran Chaos Empire for either supporting funds or a summoned hero, he orders the summoning which brought Kazuya to the world. After seeing Kazuya’s initial plans, he abdicates the throne to Kazuya and arranges for Liscia to be married to him. Albert married into the royal family through Elisha and thus is not technically the blood royal. (エリシャ・エルフリーデン, Erisha Erufurīden)
- Gatsby Colbert
The former Minister of Finance of Amidonia and current Minister of Finance of Friedonia. Along with Roroa Amidonia, he attempted to dissuade Gaius and Julius Amidonia from invading Elfrieden but was unsuccessful, resulting in the One Week War. Before the conflict could occur, he disappeared from the Amidonian capital of Van along with Roroa and several other bureaucrats loyal to her.

Reviews of How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom:
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 death note had a harem it would really be out of place and weird that is what happens in How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom as well we have all the political back and forth and the smarts and all that but then there are multiple girls fawning on him for no ahem ahem “realistic” reason.
The only reason I feel the cover girl exists so far is to ask soma questions and make him seem cool while also being a waifu which is why I am dissatisfied with the harem being there in an otherwise How a realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom is a fantastic show.
The show How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom overall is a really fun ride that focuses on the political elements of a somewhat medieval setting and using logic and politics as well as a bit of economics to make a failed kingdom a better one. To put it simply it is a log horizon minus the guilds and multiple people reincarnated with Shiroe(soma) being the king of a failed state.
It does try to follow most of the Isekai tropes but hey that has its own fans right? I like the fact that the MC is likable and not some Kirito Knowall with a degree in every possible subject on earth, his knowledge seems to be more about Human resources and how to get shit done which is kind of a big deal even in our world you know.
The art is well done even if it does present the standard Isekai setting, it tries and succeeds in telling us about the country lore, conflicts, and issues in a very concise and practical manner.
I like how well done and properly explained the map was not putting its title of a realist to shame, voice acting seems to have some prominent names and is being carried out in a relatively good manner, characters are a little lifeless except the new minister OP is great and so is the ED, they haven’t had the chance to show off any animation yet
If you like log horizon or isekais in general you are sure to love this, However even if you are not an isekai fan this is one of the Better takes on the genre so please do give it a shot!
But I do love a bit of business too. So to see those two, sort of mixed, it comes across as a great idea. In a sense, maybe like Animal Crossing, where you are in charge of helping things, set up things, all the while taking profit into consideration. It all sounds like a recipe for success. There is just one slight issue with the series How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom…
It’s a harem for some reason.
Now I’m not saying Harems are bad. But you watch from the first few episodes of How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom, and you’ll see that this show didn’t really need a harem idea in the first place. It would’ve been fine without it. Does it make it a less enjoyable experience? No, it doesn’t. It feels like a bit of fresh air on the Isekai scene. Much like a certain other two in this season, it’s actually nice seeing an Isekai, without the same ol stick happening.
As the story follows Kazuya Souma, a ‘hero’ who was summoned in typical Isekai fashion, and his way of being such, is more saving the kingdom’s financial problems, and helping it establish itself, and grow better. Which already sounds like a much better plotline than a normal run-of-the-mill Isekai. There is a lot to like about Souma too.
Can’t go wrong there. Besides them, however, there are so far few interesting characters to boot, some good, some bad, or least not praiseworthy, like the King just really disappoints me, with how weak he can come across at points.
The art style seems nice really. Can’t really say anything bad about it, much like the sound of the show. Both are fitting, and look and sound good. What more could you want honestly? Like, I really do love how some of the outfits look, and the style really brings that out in all honesty. Very well done on both ends.
Despite having a harem tagline for some reason. This show How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom is a good watch all rounds, so get to watching now!
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 How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom.
You’re going to find this incredibly boring if you’re not into smart characters using their intellect to shape the world around them. The name of the anime How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom basically describes everything you’d expect to see.
Do we have smart, strong, non-over-the-top female characters??? In an Isekai anime???
The supporting cast is likable, but the main characters, absolutely beautiful.
I cared about the two main characters from the second they met each other, I know you will too.
There are obviously still a lot of typical anime tropes, these are necessary to give meat to the characters without having to give each on a character arc.Art: 7
It’s average, there’s nothing wrong with being average especially with the new standards set by JJK, Demon Slayer and every subsequent anime that has seen their animators step up their game (I really hope they’re being paid more though).
Once again, nothing mind-blowing. It’s good.
I’ll hammer this in one more time…
How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom, smart characters shaping the world around them, a more mature take on the isekai genre.
