Synopsis of Ousama Ranking
The story focuses on Bojji, a weak and deaf prince who can not sustain even a sword for children. Like the firstborn of him, he holds the enormous desire of him to become the most powerful king of the world. However, the people around him refer me to disparapping him and have no intention of accepting him as king. Bojji gets the first friend of him, called Kage (shadow), literally a shadow on the ground that can somehow understand Bojji. In fact, Kage is a survivor of the clan of "Kage" murderers who was eliminated, so he is no longer a murderer and survives stealing. The story will follow Bojji making his own path to his desire.
