Little Prince Takes On a Big Quest in Ranking of Kings TV Anime Trailer

Prince Bojji meets an unlikely new friend in a scene from the upcoming Ranking of Kings TV anime.

It's time for a royal adventure, because a new preview video, the Japanese TV schedule, and the ending theme song performer have all been revealed for Ranking of Kings (known as Ousama Ranking in Japan), an upcoming TV anime based on the comic fantasy manga by Sousuke Toka about an unlikely candidate and his equally unlikely friend setting out to prove themselves worthy of the title of king.

The preview video (below) highlights the ending theme song for the series, entitled "Oz.", Which is performed by yama.

Funimation describes the story of Ranking of Kings as follows:

The story follows Bojji, a deaf prince who lacks power and sword-wielding ability. He's also the heir to the throne and has high hopes for his future. After finding a friend in the shadow Kage, Bojji sets off on his grand adventure to become the greatest king the world has ever seen.

The key visual for the English language version of the Ranking of Kings TV anime distributed by Funimation, featuring the main characters, Prince Bojji and his shadow companion Kage, surrounded by a frame of strange items.

Ranking of Kings is directed by Yosuke Hatta and Makoto Fuchigami and features animation production by WIT STUDIO. The series is scheduled to broadcast as part of Fuji TV's "noitaminA" animation programming block on Thursdays during the 24:55 time slot (actually on Friday morning at 12: 55am JST) beginning on October 14, 2021. Ranking of Kings will also be streamed in the United States via Funimation as part of their fall 2021 anime simulcast lineup.
