Ōsama Ranking Comedy About Good-For-Nothing Prince Gets Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Sōsuke Tōka's story of powerless prince with big dreams, only one friend

The official Twitter account for Sōsuke Tōka's Ōsama Ranking (King Ranking) manga announced on Sunday that the manga is receiving an anime adaptation.

The web manga centers around Bojji, a deaf, powerless prince who cannot even wield a children's sword. As the firstborn son, he strives hard and dreams of becoming the world's greatest king. However, people mutter about him behind his back as "a good-for-nothing prince" and "no way he can be king."

Bojji is able to make his first ever friend, "Kage" (shadow) — a literal shadow on the ground who somehow understands Bojji well. (Kage is a survivor of the Kage assassin clan that was all but wiped out. No longer a killer, Kage now makes ends meet by stealing.) The story follows Bojji's coming-of-age as he meets various people in his life, starting with his fateful encounter with Kage.

Tōka has been serializing the manga on the user-submitted manga website Manga Hack and other venues since May 2017. Kadokawa will publish the sixth compiled book volume on December 12.
