Synopsis of Ousama Ranking

The people of the kingdom despise the young prince Bojji, who cannot hear or speak. They call him “The Useless Prince” while making fun of his alleged stupidity. However, although Bojji may not be physically strong, he is not weak at heart. When a chance encounter with a shadow creature should have left him traumatized, he instead leads her to believe that he has found a friend among those who only choose to look at his flaws. He begins to meet with Kage, the shadow, regularly, to the point that even the otherwise abrasive creature begins to warm to him. Kage and Bojji’s unlikely friendship lays the foundation for the prince’s journey, in which he seeks to overcome his fears and insecurities. Despite the constant teasing he faces, Bojji is determined to fulfill his wish to become the best king he can be.
