Rie Takahashi Joins the Cast of The Genius Prince's Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt TV Anime
Adaptation based on comic fantasy light novel series is currently in-development
A new cast member has been announced for The Genius Prince's Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt (known in Japan as Tensai Ouji no Akaji Kokka Saisei Jutsu, or "Tensai Ouji" for short), an upcoming TV anime based on the comic fantasy light novel series written by Toru Toba and illustrated by Falmaro about a seemingly capable royal heir who is looking to sell out his country at the earliest opportunity.
In the series, voice actor Rie Takahashi plays Ninym Ralei (pictured above), Prince Wein's childhood friend and chief assistant. Ninym is extremely capable in subjects ranging from politics to combat, and she's one of the few people that knows the prince's true nature and danger to the nation that his irresponsibility poses, so she is always strict but considerate with him.
The original The Genius Prince's Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt (Hey, How About Treason?) light novels are published in Japan by SB Creative under their GA Bunko imprint, and an English language version of the series is also available from Yen Press, who describe the story of the series as follows:
It ain't easy being a genius...
Prince Wein is ready to commit treason. And who can blame him? Faced with the impossible task of ruling his pathetic little kingdom, this poor guy just can't catch a break! But with his brilliant idea of auctioning off his country, this lazy prince should be able to retire once and for all. Or that was the plan...until his treasonous schemes lead to disastrous consequences-namely, accidental victories and the favor of his people!
Additional details about the series (such as the staff and the release date) have not yet been revealed.
