Ousama Ranking Synopsis
The story revolves around Bojji, a weak and deaf prince who cannot even hold a child's sword. As the firstborn, he holds on to his enormous desire to become the most powerful king in the world. However, the people around him relate disparagingly to him and have no intention of accepting him as king.
Bojji gets his first friend named Kage (shadow), literally a shadow on the ground that Bojji can somehow understand. In fact, Kage is a survivor of the "Kage" assassin clan that was eliminated. So he is no longer a murderer and survives by theft. The story will follow Bojji and go its own way towards his wish.
