In the Summer 2021 anime season How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom came out and kind of underwhelmed but I did say at the end of the season that if it got a sequel I'd probably watch because it wasn't all bad. Well, here's the start of season 2.
The concept of How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom was one I was quite interested in. Your standard isekai protagonist getting summoned to another world to become a hero but instead of fighting he ends up looking at political and economic reform. 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.
If only anime adaptations cared about pacing. Realist Hero, much like certain other isekai titles this season simply stops mid-plot point as the final episode comes to a close. Be sure to read the full review.
How many times does our Realist Hero need to kill the king of the enemy army? More than once as it turns out. Be sure to read the full review.
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.
It isn't just a war, Souma is under attack from Duke Carmine and the idiot from the other kingdom. Meanwhile, he's taken the fight to the red dragon duke guy. How will this all play out in Realist Hero? Be sure to read the full review.

The 3 Dukes have finally become the main concern for our Realist Hero as this week he concludes the food crisis is on its way to being solved. While one of the three Dukes is seemingly relatively level headed about the situation, the other two have more or less decided to oppose Souma without really entertaining discussion. It will be interesting to see how our Realist Hero deals with this. Be sure to read the full review.
It had to happen eventually that our Realist Hero wouldn't necessarily solve everything with a snap of his fingers. All things considered though, he still succeeds well enough at cleaning up after mother nature has her say. Be sure to read the full review.
Completely ignoring the previous episode of Realist Hero's focus on treason and potential war, this week we go on an adventure before planning to build a new city. I'm not even all that annoyed by the sudden change because this was actually a fun episode. Be sure to read the full review.
