About How A Realist Hero Rebuilt The Kingdom
After the death of his only remaining family, Kazuya Souma was left alone. But things take a turn when he is transported to another world, into the Kingdom of Elfrieden or Friedonia where he has to assume the throne out of nowhere. To thwart the threat of the Demon Lord, Kazuya must act as the head of the Kingdom and also become the betrothed to the King’s daughter. He dedicates himself to elevate the standard of living in his lands and works to form alliances to keep the kingdom safe. As nothing ever is easy, he has entangled with battles as well as coils as he forms relationships in this world.
Adopting tactics from realism and Machiavellianism, Souma takes it upon himself and his appointed support to rebuild the kingdom for all the people. As natural in a world that adopts the typical elements of fantasy and specifically the isekai genre, there is a multitude of races in the story that become integral to the plot in one way or another.
