Well bois, Funimation has announced that the new fantasy groundbreaking epic series, Ranking of Kings, will be releasing exclusively on their streaming service! Also, the series will be available for streaming on October 15th.
I know what you’re saying “what the hell is Ranking of Kings?!” Well read this:
Ranking of Kings is based on Tōka Sōsuke’s beloved high-fantasy manga, which debuted in 2017. How prosperous your nation is, how many powerful warriors it boasts, and how heroic and strong its king is. These are the criteria that factor into the system known as the Ranking of Kings. Bojji, was born the first prince of the kingdom ruled by King Bosse, who is ranked number seven in the Ranking of Kings. But Bojji was born unable to hear and is so powerless that he can’t even swing a sword. In consequence, not only his own retainers, but also the public, look down upon him as completely unfit to be king. It is then that Bojji finds his first friend, Kage. His fateful encounter with Kage ignites a tiny spark of courage, and their lives both take a dramatic turn.
The heart-wrenching, yet heartwarming tale features animation production by Wit Studio (Attack on Titan; Vinland Saga; Vivy -Fluorite Eye’s Song-), with direction by Yosuke Hatta (One Punch Man; Death Parade) and character design by Atsuko Nozaki (Lupin the 3rd; Samurai Champloo; Attack on Titan). The music is composed by MAYUKO (Cells at Work!). The opening theme, “BOY,” is performed by King Gnu.
Now check out this great trailer:
Ranking of Kings looks amazing and the story sounds great! I’m really loving the animation, it gives off like a Ghibli feel to it. I’m sold on the series already, and it could honestly be a secret banger.
