Synopsis: “O, Hero!” With that cliched line, Kazuya Souma found himself summoned to another world and his adventure–did not begin. After he presents his plan to strengthen the country economically and militarily, the king cedes the throne to him and Souma finds himself saddled with ruling the nation! What’s more, he’s betrothed to the king’s daughter now…?! In order to get the country back on its feet, Souma calls the wise, the talented, and the gifted to his side. Five people gather before the newly crowned Souma. Just what are the many talents and abilities they possess…?! What path will his outlook as a realist take Souma and the people of his country down? A revolutionary transferred-to-another-world administrative fantasy series starts here!

  1. Frog-kun once wrote that this was the most popular novel in J-club, so I’d love to see a review of it on this site =P (saw the ANN review and… wasn’t very satisfying).
    Given its popularity, I’m going to guess this is not going down the realm of cutthroat politics and legal debates (which is what a real kingdom administrator would be doing like… 90% of their time).
