ABOUT THE SERIES
The anime focuses on the main character Bojji, who is revealed early on to be deaf and mute, but is also heir to the kingdom he lives in. Many of the citizens question if he’ll be a good king, but his parents seem confident that the young prince has the potential to be a great king, and maybe even the best in the world. Bojji meets a mysterious creature named Kage, which ends up being a life-changing encounter for both of them. There is a mysterious character who seeks to overthrow the kingdom and become king, there is a lot of comedy and some battle scenes to keep you entertained in this anime adaptation.
Tōka has been serializing the manga on the user-submitted manga website, Manga Hack, and other venues since May 2017.
