The cast for the upcoming series How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom has been announced, alongside revealing a July 2021 premiere date.
The updates to the series were announced on the official site for the anime. Yusuke Kobayashi voices the hero and main protagonist Kazuya Souma. Kobayashi is known for his work as Senku in Dr. Stone, Shin Wolford in Wise Man’s Grandchild, and the elf Zel in Interspecies Reviewers.
Inori Minase voices the crown princess and fiancee of Souma, Liscia Elfrieden. Minase is known for her work as Chino Kafu in Is The Order a Rabbit?, Somali in Somali and the Forest Spirit, and Hestia in Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?
Souma is a young man who’s summoned to another world to be the hero. However rather than perform heroics, he uses his knowledge from the real world to revolutionize agriculture, industry, and politics to such an extent the current king abdicates to him and betroths her daughter to him.
You can read the plot summary from the official site below.
One day, Kazuya Soma, who lost his grandfather, his only relative, is suddenly summoned to another world as a hero.
His destination is the Kingdom of Elfrieden, just like in medieval Europe.
Soma is not a brave man, he is just an ordinary young man, but his rational mind and modern knowledge make him a hero.
One after the other, the kingdom’s tilted fiscal and political system is rebuilt through a series of new policies.
Soma’s companions include Lysia, princess of Elfrieden Kingdom, Ayesha, the most warlike dark elf in the kingdom, Hakuya with her clever mind, Poncho, the gluttonous Poncho, Juna, the diva, and Tomoe, a girl who can communicate with animals.
The otherworldly internal politics fantasy, “[How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom]” is about rebuilding a kingdom in distress with modern knowledge. Now it’s time to start!
