Bojji and the rest of the gang are getting ready to return for more Ranking of Kings anime, and now we have a premiere date and theme song artists. Ranking of Kings: Treasure Chest of Courage is set to premiere in Japan on April 13, with rock band PEOPLE 1 (10th Chainsaw Man ending) performing “GOLD” for the opening theme and Aimer (9th Chainsaw Man ending theme) closing it out with the “Atemonaku” ending theme.
Check out the main trailer for a peek at the side story to come:
Based on Sosuke Toka’s manga, the Ranking of Kings anime has Yosuke Hatta as director, with Taku Kishimoto on series composition, Atsuko Nozaki on character designs and MAYUKO on music. Crunchyroll streamed the first season as it aired and describes the story like so:
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.
The main character, Bojji, was born the first prince of the kingdom ruled by King Bossu, who is ranked number seven.
But Bojji was born unable to hear and is so powerless that he can’t even swing a sword. In consequence, his own retainers and the public, look down upon him as completely unfit to be king.
It is then that Bojji finds his first friend, Kage, and Bojji’s life takes a dramatic turn…
We ranked this particular king as one of our most anticipated shows of the upcoming Spring 2023 season, so we’re excited!
