What should a real King be like? With a huge army of knights, with a large number of citizens, with prosperous cities in possession… In this case, the King must personally have strength and a powerful character, because the people must follow their leader. But, unfortunately, people do not live forever, and a Prince comes to replace any King. What if the Prince is small, kindhearted and… deaf and dumb?
This is exactly what Prince Bojji, the heir to the current King, is. The people love the ruler, which cannot be said about his eldest son. By the will of fate, the boy was born very small and weak, while completely deaf. But Bojji is not going to give up. Having found a friend, the shadow Kage, his journey towards the goal of becoming a powerful king is just beginning…
- Bojji — deaf and dumb from birth and has a small stature; despite all the external flaws, his lifelong dream is to become the best king in the world; poorly reads the lips of people, while perfectly understanding the speech of his friend Kage; monitors the emotions of others and is very worried when they laugh at him.
- Kage — the shadow, Bojji’s best and only friend; at the first meeting, he took the clothes from the prince, because theft is his main occupation in life; belongs to the clan of shadows, which was almost completely destroyed.
- Daida — 2nd prince after Bojji, his younger brother; has incredible concentration, which helps him in battle to be strong like a father; taunts his brother, because he considers himself worthy of the throne.
- Queen Hilling — mother of Prince Daida; hysterical, arrogant woman, hates Bojji for his height, stupidity, behavior and deafness, that is, for everything; in her opinion, her beloved son should take the place of the future king; for any, even the slightest violation, she is ready to execute a person.
- Despite the fact that the main character is a boy, he is voiced by Japanese actress Minami Hinata. In principle, there is nothing terrible in this, because the main character, Prince Bojji, does not speak at all. Minami Hinata has 2 voice acting jobs for anime characters.
