But kinda hoping that this focused on the "bed" action too, like in the early series...

The main character is not special in any way that matters, he has some stuff that makes him special but he can't use those things from chapter 1 to 24 he has not been able to use his powers and i have only read up to chapter 24 since that's the latest chapter when i write this. Anyways the main character is useless in all ways other than making offspring not H-stuff in this manga though.

Anyways the entire manga is about Politics, a metric ton of dialog and almost no action, so this manga is clearly not for everyone, that being said i like it, and if the chapters came out weekly instead of monthly i could forgive the fact that it's very slow and very little happens.

Good isekai

A pretty good isekai with a small twist being that the MC is more of a supporter to his wife who is a Queen. It is great seeing an isekai MC who has such love and devotion to his wife and the romance in the beginning is quite heart warming.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
However, Family Size and Political issue, forces MC to eventually take more than one wife.
Reason being the current size of the Royal Family, which is currently standing at 3 members only (4th one would be revealed to be coming soon after the current arc is over).
The Queen don't even have any direct blood-relatives left alive either, so in order to maintain power and standing, Queen has to increase her family size. By luck MC is someone who has the Royal blood running in him, she has to make use of it properly by taking on more wives.

Some will probably be disappointed since many would have been attracted to their lovey-dovey relationship in the beginning but the political intrigue in my opinion still makes this an interesting story.

So far, not bad

A more mature take on the isekai genre, this is a welcome change for those tired of the hero read trope, still, there are some things I find rather lacking, for example, the pace, there is little going on, and I don't mean action, even interesting dialogues would do, there is some intrigue at play but it doesn't play out and is kept at shallow levels. Another example is the little impact the knowledge of this world is making, he had time to take whatever he wanted from this fantasy world, are you telling me he didn't even install an encyclopedia in his laptop? If it was me, let alone the encyclopedia, I'd be sure to pack all the information he could gather on science and medicine and crafting, I'd take precautions to avoid misuse but I definitely would take them. In any case, he took electricity and many gadgets, that alone should be ultra revolutionary yet the Queen just comment something on the light-bulb... What brings a big change to the country? glass marbles... nop, not joking

In any case, the MC is different from the usual guy high on his own power that collects women only to not touch them. Right off the bat the MC is there to marry and thus he actually has proper relations with a woman and even seams like a loyal fellow. Also, he's a proper grown-up, someone who knows the hardships of a life as a salary-man and chose this new world to his previous life, so he acts accordingly, unlike other such settings where the MC's mind seams to revert to their adolescence instantly, ej. "Tensei deshitara slime...". As for the female lead, she's a decent char I guess, I like how she keeps checks on the MC to see if he's a hypocrite, and some of the more conflicting things are probably because their society is highly male dominant society. Actually, the story might have been more interesting told from her perspective.
Story-wise, so far it's been rather uneventful as I say above, the intrigue goes nowhere, there are few problems or they are just explained lengthy just with words and then forgotten, as of now it's starting to move forward so it's too soon to tell, so far kind of boring other than the relation of the MC and female lead.
Other than that, art is good, dialogues a bit lengthy but decent and the relation of the two main chars is good enough imo.

So overall, an interesting take which I need to see more to make a proper opinion but so far, not bad.

Good Novel

Rating: 7.0  / 10.0
This story was enjoyable to read, and I am not quite sure why. The novel is about a guy who worked very long hours 6 days a week who gets summoned to a different world to marry the queen, the reason he is summoned is to be someone who was related to the royal family several generations ago and is thus a reasonable candidate. The setting is in a rather generic summoning genre world, but the stories conflict is the protagonist is trying to be a lazy good for nothing person who's only use is to produce off spring so that in the male dominated society the queen can rule her kingdom without issues. It's a new concept of the summonee is not meant to be very important and it was very enjoyable to read and I have been checking for updates for a third volume every couple of weeks and I would defiantly suggests checking it out over at Unlimited Novel Failures.

Can I just say wow? I don't think I've ever gone into a series expecting less and been so so wrong. If you read the description or look at the cover art your first reaction will probably be "Really? Another isekai harem? When will the SAO wannabes finally die?", and then you will precede to read (I read all the chapters of risou no himo seikatsu rifters manga here online) it anyway as a guilty pleasure because you're bored trash and have nothing better to do.

Allow me to say one thing:


So you know how typical isekai protagonists are some hated garbage of humanity, they die unexpectedly, end up in a new world, become super op, and have a truck load of girls they sleep around with? This manga is nothing like that. Lots of political intrigue, some thought was put into the plot, the mc isn't some awful guy that sleeps with anything that isn't male, and it has a lot of unexpected twists. I am constantly worried that the author is going to revert back to cliche isekai tropes, and then I am always equally impressed that the author makes original choices and plot developments.

Yeah, it's just really good. I gave it a 9. Did I give it such a high score because I was expecting something way worse? Probably, but perhaps that is what makes it so enjoyable.

I tried reading the novels because I was eager for more chapters since the day of release of chapter 1. I was put off immediately by the lack of literary prowess from the author.
I rather stick to this version, it has been a really good read so far.

Here we have, again, two attractive people, a man and a woman, well drawn both in the picture sense and in the character-creation sense. They are set into a world of amazing complexity. In S. and W., the complexity was in the medieval economics, which the main male character had a good grounding in, but had to learn more. In fact, his learning/understanding more of that world's economics was essential to the survival of the two of them! The main female character contributed a deep, ancient understanding of human nature.

Here the complexity that the main male character must master is the intrigue of an aristocratic court, which the main female character already has a good grasp of.

This setup is virtually guaranteed to bring us lots of exciting intrigue and learning, both at once. Further, because the female M.C. is a hottie, this manga is perfect for males. And its perfect for female readers, who always seem to want a strong woman, too—cuz no-one's stronger than a queen!

If you like learning stuff, or figuring out stuff, or solving mysteries, I think you'll like this manga. I'm thrilled with it. I've read enough to believe that it's unlikely to lapse into silliness later.

Good original material, but not really a good adaptation, for now

RnHS is one of the light novels I love the most. It's characters are well made and have a "thick" credible personality, the plot is well made, without falling to the easy traps of the "MC transported/summoned/reincarnated to a medieval fantasy world" genre. The country the MC arrives at is medieval India-ish with magic, but neither is that magic so OP that the MC forgets everything from our world nor is the MC some omniscient man knowing how to improve farming, medicine, cooking, how to make stealth bombers from scratch... In fact the magic is not all that powerful and the MC has the layman knowledge in most topics, furthermore he has more or less decided to affect his new world as little as possible (no technological breakthrough). His aim is mostly to live with his wife while not hindering her work (she is a queen in a male dominated society, after all). So what is there in this story?
To quote the comment of Elaborate on Novel Update,
There's not that much action, and what action there is, the MC is generally not involved with. He IS learning magic, but in a very realistic fashion, it turns out to require around three years of studying to use it, so that's not the focus of the story either - we just see him studying from time to time.
So what's left? Married-couple romance with the Queen, doing the taxes of an entire kingdom with a computer spreadsheet, carefully NOT getting too involved in court politics, trying to invent soap before the supply runs out, negotiating trade routes, teaching the maids to play video games... In short, situations you basically never read about!

The manga itself (currently read until ch3):
The drawings are of good quality
The manga adaptation took some liberties from the LN version. While it is understandable that some explanations are shortened and put in a totally different way than in the LN, other modifications are simply unforgivable:
The story begins with some "premonitory dream" that simply breaks the universe' consistency before it's even been established. If the author wanted to put that scene in the first chapter (to get the readers interest?), why not make a flashback? After all, the novel did it, even if it was not from that same specific moment.
The MC is an intelligent modern Japanese man, but for some reason, the manga makes him dumber and more perverted than necessary. At least that is the feeling I got from the 3 chapters available at the moment.

Conclusion: Wait and see
If the original story is not too altered by the adaptation, this will be a great read for anyone who enjoy a slice of life story with a bit of politics.
If not, well... this could turn out to be some shitty moe-ized adaptation.
I really hope the quality of the adaptation will improve to make justice to the original works!
