In a rotted away castle, Ashta awoke as a Demon King. With his wisdom from a past life, he would rule over his lands as a thorough realist. “Demon King, why are you attacking the level 1 Heroes?” “Defeat them before they become stronger. That is called strategy.” “Demon King, why are you sending fake money to the enemy country?” “To bring chaos to their economy so they will self-destruct.” “The werewolf troops have attacked. Should we use silver bullets?” “Not bullets, shoot them with canons.” And like that, Ashta ‘reformed’ the old tendencies. He became a lord who was loved by the people and his subordinates and would go on to be called the most powerful Demon King in history.
Whenever I see ‘realist’ in the title of an anime, or manga, I now doubt that people actually know what this means. Realist Maou ni Yoru Seiiki naki Isekai Kaihaku is a mix of Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken and Drifters, a very bad one. First things first, the story. This is your usual isekai, where an incel, virgin, no-life otaku, gets isekai’ed and randomly chosen by a Goddess only to bring peace in one of the worlds. Sure, why would not you pick someone who is actually competent and not just a loser doing nothing but playing games in their mom’s basement? Truly, only otaku will save the world. Our protagonist gets the power from the Goddess and a few artifacts that already imply that he is super overpowered and does not have to do that much to bring peace to the world he was summoned to. However, the manga still tries to pretend that it has some sort of philosophy behind it and that its protagonist knows some sort of military tactics he is following in his quest. Unfortunately, most of his ideas and plans are so low that you will surely start to doubt him being a realist. Sometimes it just seems that even a kid would have come up with a better plan that the manga’s protagonist. On top of that, the characters, too, are far from having anything interesting about them. They receive little to no development, when the main protagonist becomes edgier and edgier with every chapter and then it becomes completely ridiculous, because the show becomes death boring and tries to keep you interested by adding some bloody unnecessary details that are not helpful for neither the characters’ development, nor the world building. Overall, I am disappointed. I was expecting to read something more than that. Could have been much better than this. Realist Maou ni Yoru Seiiki naki Isekai Kaihaku gets a 4/10.
A Story of a suicidal idiot The MC is a realist but a suicidal idiot whose only realist action was the thought of killing Heroes has Babes, which is what you only see in video games most TV villians kill their hero young @least try. He is more of Gambler who is gambling his life.
