This is what Ranking of Kings is all about:
The prosperity of the kingdom, the number of powerful warriors and the strength of the king himself. These are the criteria by which the ranking of kings is made. Bojji is the firstborn son of King Boss, who is seventh in the rankings. But the little prince is deaf and so weak that he cannot even swing a sword, which is why he is considered an unsuitable heir to the throne not only by his subjects but also by the people. Bojji finally finds the first friend of his life, Kage. Their encounter ensures that Bojji's life takes a dramatic turn.
