How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom Series Review – Making Ruling Look Almost Effortless

How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom Series Review

The concept of How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom was one I was quite interested in.

While the end result wasn't exactly thrilling it also wasn't a terrible anime to watch during the Summer 2021 season. Be sure to read the full review.

Seirei Gensouki Episode 12 Impressions – It Literally Just Stopped

Seirei Gensouki Episode 12 Review

Seirei Gensouki has brought its season to an end. Kind of. Maybe. It was the last episode at least and MAL says it is done. That pretty much nothing felt different about this episode to any other and things are as open as they've been all along probably doesn't make much difference to the overall review of Seirei Gensouki at this point.

How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom Episode 11 Impressions – Souma’s Easy Victory

Realist Hero Episode 11

I really don't like when stories have characters behave in illogical ways and then later try to build some kind of motivation behind it that makes it all make sense. It doesn't change the fact that their actions were kind ridiculous. So it is with Duke Carmine in Realist Hero and honestly all of the people standing against Souma more or less just fell apart this week. Be sure to read the full review.
