What Is It?
The 2021 Japanese anime (animated) TV show How A Realist Hero Rebuilt The Kingdom (Season 1).
This is how MyAnimeList describes this anime TV show:
After the death of his grandfather, 19-year-old Kazuya Souma—an aspiring civil servant—is left all alone with no one to call family. Out of the blue, he is transported to the Elfrieden Kingdom, a small ailing country in another world, to be a “hero.” An ongoing war with the demon army has put the entire world in peril, and Kazuya was summoned to aid in the conflict as an offering from Elfrieden to its allies.
Dissatisfied with being used as tribute, Kazuya decides to help the kingdom revamp its declining economy—not by way of adventuring or war, but through administrative reform. Abruptly declared the King of Elfrieden and betrothed to the princess, the “Realist Hero” Kazuya sets out to assemble a group of talented citizens who will assist him in his bureaucratic battles to get the kingdom back on its feet.

I found out about this anime by accident when I saw the thumbnail for it on an online streaming video website, the title caught my attention, and so I decided to start watching the first episode.
To my surprise it was pretty good, so I told my brother GC about it, and I started watching the show.
I had to wait for new episodes to come out because the English dub was just starting to be slowly released.
This show stayed consistent & kept my attention, and has me wondering what will happen next.
It is cool seeing a somewhat more realistic approach in this genre, and watching someone have to suddenly try to manage a kingdom in a new world.
