The most amazing isekai story of all time was ended with the Summer 2022 slate. This did not confirm that the new season would be returning, unlike many other popular stories. The fate of Kingdom Elfrieden was not yet known, so the sequel ended on a strong note. How A Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom Season 3 must deal with many questions regarding the Empire and Souma’s relationships. Is it being renewed? What do the JC Staff think about this? This is everything you need to know about renewal of the third season.
Season 3: How a Realist Hero Rebuilt The Kingdom: Renewed Or Not
The third season of How A Realist Hero Rebuilt The Kingdom has not been renewed as of March 2022. The makers have not given any hint that the season will be returning. Studio JC Staff also animated Edens Zero and His Maid, The Duke of Death And His Maid, The Strongest Sage with The Weakest Crest and Requiem of the Rose King. The studio has two additional releases planned for April 2022.
Is it Coming Back?
Because of the animation company’s busy schedule, it is possible that How A Realist Hero reconstructed The Kingdom Season 3 will be canceled for a few months even though it has received a lot of praise online. The second season of the anime was a good effort to maintain the show’s reputation. Realist Hero is a true homage to the original storyline, unlike other shows that often get haphazard sequels.
The show has received a high rating from fans of IMDb, with a score of 7.1 stars. The pilot season received 8 stars. The MyAnimeList score of 7.4 stars is also close to 17k votes. As we write, it seems like there are high chances for a third season.
What will happen in Season 3?
Season 2 will likely continue in the fifth volume. According to the official synopsis, the volume will contain approximately the same number of new programs. This includes the start of an Educational program. This episode will be the first chance for fans to meet Silvan. The story will then shift to Juno’s quest for the truth about Souma’s doll.
The story also includes the wedding course, which involves an ecchi twist between Souma’s brides and his grooms. All of them will be able to act out these attributes outside of their bedroom after this discussion. The Kingdom Season 3: How a Realist Hero Rebuilt The Kingdom will also examine the degrading relationship between Souma’s Dragon Waifu. The third season will be completed in two volumes of LN.

Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki anime was adapted directly from the LN with the same name, illustrated by Satoshi Umeda.

There are enough volumes to allow for a third season. Fans can rest assured that the series is not over and Dozeumaru will continue to write a story.

It is unlikely that the series will be renewed until 2023. This section will be updated as new information becomes available. Keep checking this section for updates.
How a Realist Hero Rebuilt Kingdom manga/light novels in comparison to the anime
The anime’s story is inspired by the Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki light novels series by Dojyomaru, and Fuyuyuki. It is also known as the English title Re.CONSTRUCTION: The Elfrieden Kingdom Tales of Realistic Brave.
The story, like many other isekai adventures began in 2014 as a Realist Hero webnovel. It was self-published first on Shosetsuka ni Nao’s website. However, it was deleted and republished on PIXIV in 2016.
The web novel is not over yet. It is divided into three main story sagas. Part 1: The Realist Hero’s Kingdom Reconstruction Chronicle had 105 chapters. Part 2: The Realist Hero’s Great Nation Construction Chronicle was completed in November 2020. It had 140 chapters. Part 3: The Realist Hero’s Empire Building Chronicle introduced an initial three-year time skip. It is still being updated.
It was first adapted by Overlap Bunko as a light novel series in 2016. As of December 25, 2021, it’s up to Realist Hero Volume 16.
Two different ways are being published the official English translations of the light novels. J-Novel Club started digitally publishing the English Realist Hero novels in 2017, while Seven Seas Entertainment released the physical book volumes. As of January 17, 2022 the digital version had reached Volume 15, while Volume 15 will be available in physical form on July 26, 2022.
In July 2017, creator Dojyomaru joined forces with Satoshi Ueda, an artist to begin serializing the Realist Hero manga series. It’s now up to Volume 8 in Japanese with more than 40 chapters by December 2021. The English translation of the manga had reached Volume 7 digitally by January 2022.The anime episode titles are often references to pop culture or history.

Light novel and manga lovers found the opening episode of the anime very promising. It foreshadowed future events, introducing some characters early.
The anime teased Roroa Amidonia’s butler and other characters early on, even though they don’t appear in the manga until Chapter 11, or are important until Light Novel Volume 2. The anime briefly featured The Three Dukes as well as the Euphoria Sisters.
This is the difficult part of adapting this story. The books are very long and dive into complicated topics. The TV format is short so the anime has to simplify the dialogue. Sometimes, characters’ motivations and actions are altered.
It was quite odd, for example, that Aisha Udgard, a dark elf, immediately pledged loyalty to KazuyaSouma after she was publicly lectured about basic forestry. You could almost call it condescending “isekai explanation” since Souma’s grand solution was tree thinning. This is Agroforestry 101, which goes back hundreds of centuries on Earth.
Although the manga and books didn’t mention tree thinning, Aisha was more concerned that humans were entering the forests to forage. Even more nuance was added to the books. Souma came up with logical conclusions about forest state and dark elves’ problems based upon their initial conversation. Souma and Aisha each posed potential problems and came up with a solution without being asked directly. This is why Aisha was quick to get down to her knees.
Fair enough, the books were quite extensive on illegal wood gathering and food shortages. The manga explained the issues in a concise manner and the motivations of the characters well, so it is a bit surprising that the anime didn’t follow their lead.
Light novels almost explained too much why Poncho Panacotta, a glutton, would be useful for his knowledge of gastronomic. Episode 3 assumed that viewers would be smart enough not to be told. Episode 4 showed how Souma used Poncho’s knowledge to combat food shortages.
Souma made an apology to the people when he bowed before the people. The manga took it a step further and had Souma explain to the citizens exactly what caused the food shortages, as well as why the leaders of the kingdom were responsible. This was easy to cut, since Souma had already explained the problem to Liscia. However, the skip scene established Souma’s transparency and accountability as ruler, something this world hadn’t seen before.
Also, the anime skipped over how Souma helped the mystic tribe of wolves to grow their economy as refugees. After learning that the tribe had created his favorite soy sauce and bean paste, he placed a five-year ban on any sales of the products.
The episode 4 discussion was notable for the revelation that demon monsters are sentient beings with their unique language by Tomoe Inui, a mystic wolf girl. Souma in the anime pointed out that certain kingdoms within humanity might be tempted by the demons to form an alliance, but Souma in the books immediately saw a larger issue than the anime.
Souma wrote in the manga that “10 years ago, humanity went to war against the demon realm to exterminate the barbarous but slightly intelligent monsters.” “But if demons can communicate with… then humans began a massive war with demons.”
The secondary concern was whether hiding this life-altering revelation could be seen as humanity’s betrayal. It was quickly decided that the demon’s intelligence will be kept secret and the information would be slowly distributed over time.
Episode 5 featured fan-favorite power couple Halbert Magna and Kaede Wolfia. In addition, Episode 6 featured the lap pillow scene.
Episode 7 didn’t spoil the plot twist that revolved around Duke Georg Carmine’s true motives. In order to keep the suspense alive, Glaive Magna did not reveal what she had said behind closed doors.
Episode 7 was otherwise focused on Volume 1 Chapter and the construction phase of the Venetinova Project. Kazuya discovered the truth of Urup’s fables in the light novel. The man was stunned when he said that the story was intended to warn of tsunamis and earthquakes.
Kazuya instructed the elderly man and other elders in the light novel to continue telling an altered version so that people could better understand the danger. Kazuya didn’t move Venetinova. To minimize the risk, he modified the construction plans.
Episode 8 covered the rescue of the Dark Elf village. Kaede’s earth magic enabled them to travel quicker and Tomoe also contributed to the rescue effort. Only a brief mention was made of the conflict with Aisha’s uncle and his rescue of his daughter.
Episode 9 did not explain why Liscia’s hair cutting is so important. Duke Carmine was like a second dad to her, and that’s why she ran home from Carmine’s castle to confront Souma. Liscia was basically putting down the gauntlet, and showing that she was ready to fight for Souma’s beloved “Uncle”.
The anime neglects to mention magic in the world when there are conflicts. A large spear can be more destructive than an arrow or bullet because of its physical size.
Episode 11 was when the condensing got too intense. The anime simply states that their forces were halved after the retreat to Amidonia. The brutality of Golda’s ambush was not shown, but rather hinted at. Juna Doma, the songstress, was revealed suddenly to be a Ninja. She had hidden a knife behind her back while Hal confronted Souma at the cafe.
It was a good job that the plot twist about Duke Carmine was revealed. However, it did change one thing. Liscia was initially aware of the plot and attempted to find a way to move forward that didn’t require Carmine to give his life for the good the country.
The anime felt like a preview of light novels and manga series, starting with Episode 12. The final battle was cut to a minimum, and the subjugation by the remaining forces in the city was also heavily edited. Even though the concert was the main focus, Project Lorelei’s fan-favorite tomboy girl singer was not included.
The female Amidonian general story arc had a different reaction to her singing. The Sound of Music was the reason Souma allowed the female general to sing the Amidonian National Anthem. He recalled how the Captain sang Edelweiss to Nazis at the ending, which proved that the character was loyal not to Germany but Austria. This would have helped win the Amidonian population over.
Souma will have to deal with many issues after the subjugation the Principality in Amidonia was completed, including honorable traitors as well as negotiations with the empire. This time, it’s all about international diplomatic skill. Souma has a pragmatic approach to politics but is not afraid to delve into Machiavellianism in the name of his people.
The light novels have a chapter that is almost entirely dedicated to Machiavelli’s concept in The Prince. The anime omitted Souma’s thoughts about the importance of decisions, such as the King ordering executions.
The anime focuses on Souma’s emotions and explains how social status and marriage would work for his growing harem. Realist Hero Part 2 Episode 17 This fantasy polygamist culture divides wives and queens into tiers, where the Primary Queens noble birth have greater authority and their children have the right of succession after Souma’s death.
Aisha is an exceptional case because her father, Sir Wodan is technically a sovereign Lord of an autonomous area within Elfrieden. He is also known simply as Chief of the village Elfs. Aisha is a Primary Queen because of this technicality.
Commoner or slave queens have less authority than primary queens and their children do not have the right to succeed them. Carla, despite her noble blood, became a slave. She would be considered a Secondary queen if she were to marry to avoid execution.
Aisha would be second primary queen, Liscia would then be first secondary queen, while Juna would be second primary queen. Souma is aware that by marrying Roroa, he can legitimize the reign of his over Amidonia.
Remember that Souma is only a provisional King. To make his kingship formal, he would need to have a coronation. Only then can he have a big day with all the girls from his harem.
Episode 25 dealt with these issues and was a little strange since Excel interrogated a hypnotized Souma regarding his feelings and cat-ear fetishes. The anime production committee may not have wanted to show a drunken teenager Souma as in the books. However, changing the mind control to make Excel look very creepy and treasonous made Excel seem very creepy. The anime moved its place in the timeline, and skipped the funny scene where the brides learned that Souma had received bedroom lessons from Excel… or that Juna was spiked by her grandmother!
Episode 18 brought up the manga chapters and made some minor changes. Owen, Piltory, and Souma stood up to Owen before being removed by Georg Carmine/Kagetora.
The anime’s Roroa storyline shifted significantly around the timeline of Volume 4. Some details regarding the management of the kingdom were not covered. Souma provided affordable housing (prefabricated houses) for the slums, and encouraged medical advances to make childbirth safer.
This was directly related to his desire not to have intimate relationships with his wives. He wanted to wait to become a father so that he could ensure the safety of his daughters. This detail would have helped Souma to be more relatable, since it was implied in the anime that he was only averse physical intimacy.
Souma even tried to take on slavery and the drug trade. The anime doesn’t explain why slavery in the fantasy world is essentially the same as the chattel slave system of the 1800’s United States. Babies born to slaves are automatically made slaves. Souma was so disgusted at the slavery system, he decided to change the law and free young slaves. The anime’s first season rushed through light novel Volume 3. Thankfully, How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom Part 2 backed up the story slightly in order to better provide context for the next story arc by covering skipped chapters.
Although the anime version skipped some key character-building scenes at the end of Part 1, the anime didn’t condense it too much. Instead, the writers tried to concentrate on the details that made this isekai adventure stand out from the rest. The manga skipped the stories about Souma’s animated mascot, but the anime did.
Many isekai anime tend to reduce the number of light novels from 3 to 5 to 12 episodes. The Realist Hero anime, however, was up to Volume 1 Chapter 2 by Episode 3.
The anime is faster than the manga, but even the Realist Hero manga feels quicker since the introduction to the kingdom’s talented people took place in manga Chapter 4. Episode 4 was already a third through the anime’s debut season. It only adapted manga Chapters 5, and 6.
The episode ended with Episode 9 which completed Volume 1’s epilogue. After that, several chapters were adapted. The pacing has only increased from Episode 10, which adapts Volume 2 Chapters 4 to 6; Episode 11, Volume 2 Chapters 6-8; Episode 12 finishes Volume 2 Chapter 9/Epilogue, and adapts Volume 3 Chapters 2 (partial), 4, 6, 8, and 8.
Part 1 (or Episode 13) ended with adaptations of previously skipped portions of Volume 3. Chapters 1, 2, (remainder), 3, 5 and Intermission 1. Part 2, or Realist Hero Episode 14 was picked up after diving back into Volume 3. Episode 18 concluded it.
The anime only touched the surface of the book series so it was a good stopping point for Part 1. Part 1 is the Elfriedien civil War which offers a dramatic battle. Although the conflict is resolved, certain points remain unanswered.
Even so, Episode 13 would have been a better ending, given how respectful the original source material was to anime writers at the beginning. It would have been more fitting to end with Volume 2’s The One Week War (Three Dukes War). The second cour could then have dealt with the Van War and its aftermath, which is what the original author considered the end of the introductory story.
Episodes 14-18 did indeed support the story and covered skipped chapters from Volume 3. The pacing was a thoughtful adaptation that still managed to highlight the main points of the story.This is how the How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom light novel art depicted Souma and Liscia’s kiss after he confessed his love for her.

As predicted by the finale of the first season, How a Realist Hero rebuilt the Kingdom Episode 26, the ending point corresponded to Volume 4.
There is plenty of material available to make Realist Hero Season 2. Even better, English-only readers can skip to Volume 5 light novel in print or digital if they wish to catch up on the anime.
Manga readers are disappointed to hear that Realist Hero Episode 18 revealed that the anime had outperformed the manga. Episode 11, and therefore light novel Volume 2, ended in Chapter 27, which corresponded with manga Volume 6: Chapter 27. The manga adaptation of Volume 3 was not complete as Volume 8: Chapter 39. Manga readers will have to wait until then to see the anime.
