Aisha's town is in danger and Kazuya Souma decides to help her in "How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom" Episode 8.

The official website has released the spoiler stills and synopsis of Episode 8. An unprecedented crisis hits Aisha’s hometown, which is facing torrential rains. Moreover, the heavy rains have caused a landslide and half of the village is under debris.

Now, Souma and his colleagues rush to rescue the villagers and whatever is left of the village. Souma has limited time and he needs to act fast before the entire village goes underwater.

In the previous episode, titled "Thus Saith the Elder," it was revealed the magic in another world was divided into six elements -- fire, earth, wind, water, darkness, and light.

Fire, earth, wind, and water each consisted of their own magic attacks. However, the light was used for healing magic. Darkness was unique as it wasn’t magic that manipulated darkness but any specialized magic that didn’t fall under the other five elements was called dark magic.

Souma’s living poltergeist was part of the other category and termed dark magic. During the episode, Souma used his magic to join an adventurer party.

“Souma dispatches his magically-controlled mascot warrior to join an adventurer party. After securing funding with his team of accountants, Souma sets out to build a new port city and network of roads, but runs into opposition from the local residents,” read the synopsis of "How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom" Episode 7, according to Funimation.
