Back in 2019 we got to talk about how Yen Press had picked up a new property for translation with the light novels for The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt (Hey, How About Treason?), which is known as Tensai Ouji no Akaji Kokka Saiseijutsu: Souda, Baikokushiyou in its original Japanese. It’s had seven novels since it started with Yen Press bringing out the first five so far.
Now, an anime adaptation is on the way with voice actor Soma Saito making the announcement and that he’d be taking on the role of lead character Wein for it.
Property Concept: The prince of this small and weak kingdom strives for only one thing: selling out his country and living a quiet life in leisure! Sadly, the greatest obstacle he will ever face is his own genius…! As he achieves ever greater accomplishments, he earns more and more favor with the people of his kingdom…which makes fulfilling his own dreams all the harder!!!
