Ousama Ranking manga has been serialized on Echoes’ user-submitted Manga Hack website since May 2017. Its gentle illustrations, worldview, and profound story have drawn attention to SNS.
Ousama Ranking manga’s tankobon volumes released by KADOKAWA Beam Comics have sold over 1.2 million copies. As WIT Studio (Attack on Titan)’s the tenth-anniversary title, its TV anime adaptation is set to premiere on Fuji Television Network’s “Noitamina” programming block in October 2023.
The fan-favourite anime studio is back with another story of an underdog prince, Bojji who is too weak to wield a children’s sword.
However, Ousama Ranking aka King’s Ranking anime isn’t anything like Wit Studio’s other dark & intense works. The studio is trying a unique style of animation that they haven’t tried before.
The anime is pretty light-hearted and it blends adventure, fantasy, and child-like wonder in a way that you may even mistake it for a Studio Ghibli work.
