The people of the kingdom look down on the young Prince Bojji, who can neither hear nor speak. They call him "The Useless Prince" while jeering at his supposed foolishness.

However, while Bojji may not be physically strong, he is certainly not weak of heart. When a chance encounter with a shadow creature should have left him traumatized, it instead makes him believe that he has found a friend amidst those who only choose to notice his shortcomings. He starts meeting with Kage, the shadow, regularly, to the point where even the otherwise abrasive creature begins to warm up to him.

Kage and Bojji's unlikely friendship lays the budding foundations of the prince's journey, one where he intends to conquer his fears and insecurities. Despite the constant ridicule he faces, Bojji resolves to fulfill his desire of becoming the best king he can be.

The story sets in a medieval timeline yet it is a remarkable story of a prince. He is deaf which creates a few challenges for him but his bright and positive mindset allows him to become a remarkable person.
It was an emotional story mixed with comedy. Bojji's character development was subtle and slow-paced, which made me better for the story. Watching this anime helped me relax, especially after watching more high and fast-paced anime.
Seeing the graphics, I assumed that the anime was older but it was a new anime, released in early 2020's. I liked the idea of using what appears to be older ...

Mixed Feelings
Osama Ranking is a disappointment with a lot of wasted potential. It is a show with a nice premise and a strong opening trio of episodes that slowly descends into an average revenge story and bad Deus Ex Machina.

Let me explain:
(Minor spoilers ahead)

Bojji is a mute-deaf Prince in a medieval European setting with the dream of being the best King in the world.
The first impression is that the story is going to be about the emotional journey of Bojji overcoming abuse and prejudice of society and family, doing the best for his kingdom despite his disabilities. The first emotional aspect is that Bojji is ...

Boring. Cliche. Lame. Ousama Ranking is extremely predictable and has zero stakes involved, a majority of the show are flashbacks where it just drags and drags and bores the viewer with "character development" for characters you don't care about.

The author failed to tell a coherent story past the first part and it inevitably ends up as a convoluted mess where nothing matters in the end. Every character is as bland as wet toilet paper. The premise of the story gets thrown away halfway through and the idea of "Ranking of Kings" just ends up being an Bojji powercreep journey

Do not watch this show if ...
