While volume 1 of The Ideal Sponger Life was intriguing, volume 2 has me completely hooked. What a great premise, despite Zenjiro thought he had found a life of ease by marrying Aura, a Queen of a far off land. It turns out that the seemingly good life is far more complicated than Zenjiro could have imagined. The thing I love about the series is the fact that Zenjiro instead of complaining or acting selfish like so many protagonist of similar series. Zenjiro realizes the delicate situation he has put Aura in, he and her put their best foot forward a dance around the political climate that is determined to steal the throne from Aura.
I can not recommended the series enough. Somehow there is less fan service in this volume, for a series I swore was going to be mostly about service, the series has turned into a genuinely fascinating story. Let's hope the series continues to deepen. Also Aura and Zenjiro has surprisingly great chemistry, I can't wait for the next volume.

Ah, good old fashioned royal court intrigue.2020年11月8日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
This series is rather interesting, if I be permitted to say so. Zenjiro, from another world, & consort to the queen! Everyone wants to gain his favor, & in the case of certain young noblewomen, they hope to catch Zenjiro's eye! I think the queen has no serious competition at the moment. She's busty, has long red hair, & is gorgeous. It's easy to see why Zenjiro is so taken with her. And she with him. His devotion to her has not gone unnoticed. I'm just waiting for the ball to drop. We all know that things are going to get dangerous for the queen & her consort. As I haven't read the light novels, I don't know what's coming, but based on the covers of the manga series, things may take a serious turn for the worse for our man Zenjiro.

politics are complicated and Zenjiro is getting some serious on the job training in being "the King" so he relies on his old job skills and Aura's lessons in royal edacate to see him through.once again this manga suceeds in pulling me in to its plot just like Black Clover did

I like these because when I tried these out I thought it would be a harem manga. Turns out I was pleasantly surprised. It seems to be a unique manga. Focusing on all different aspects of life, politics and a ton of other stuff that I have never thought about in an isekai.
