Funimation obviously expects great things out of Bojji when he makes his debut in Ranking of Kings. Heck, they even have a brand new trailer all lined up for him. Check it out below:

Ah, this is going to be a tearjerker of an anime, isn’t it?

With that new trailer above, Funimation officially invites fans to check out the series premiere of Ranking of Kings. Fortunately, we won’t have long to wait. As of this writing, this anime will premiere tomorrow on Thursday, October 14, 2021. The debut will happen in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Chile and Peru, and all of Wakanim’s territories throughout Europe. And of course, this anime will be a Funimation exclusive. If you want to watch it tomorrow, catch it on their website here. You’re probably going to need a paid subscription though, unless you’re willing to wait for the free version later.

Ranking of Kings: Details

So what is Ranking of Kings about? Well, for starters, it’s the latest anime from Wit Studio (Attack on Titan, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, The Ancient Magus’ Bride). Ranking of Kings itself is the anime adaptation of the seinen fantasy comedy manga of the same name by Sōsuke Tōka. The story stars a deaf-mute young prince who seems to be on the road not to kingship. He soon finds a new friend who may change his mind, and everyone else’s, about that.

The official synopsis from Funimation gives more details about Ranking of Kings:

Unable to hear, speak, or wield a sword, Prince Bojji doesn’t seem like a typical heir to the throne—and his kingdom agrees. But his fateful encounter with Kage, a shadow on the ground, gives him his first true friend. The two set off on a grand adventure and, together, form a bond that can overcome any obstacle… even being king.


Funimation invites all anime fans to watch Ranking of Kings on its world premiere. This epic fantasy anime about a little deaf-mute boy’s unlikely ascendance to kingship will premier on October 14, 2021. This anime will be a Funimation exclusive though, so catch it there.
