How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom Review (Spoiler Free)

It’s time for another fantasy / isekai review from last season.

This time, it’s How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom.

Seirei Gensouki / Spirit Chronicles Review (Spoiler Free)

When I first arrived to Japan, in Tokyo, just the streets, cars, buildings, etc. were foreign enough to make me want to take pictures of basically everything I laid my eyes on. I’ve definitely gotten past that, at least. The mountains here still catch my eyes all the time though, so I’m glad to say that I haven’t gotten over them.

Like some of my other posts, here are some more things that I didn’t know I’d have to deal with when I moved to Japan.
