In episode 7, Kazuya Souma proves he is worthy of the political power that is awarded to him, and the former rulers have made the right decision in summoning him. After learning about the six disciplines of magic, he formulates a plan to use them to Elfrieden’s advantage.

According to the proposed plans, Kazuya will improve the infrastructure of the empire by the construction of a new port and hundreds of roads to increase economic activities.
