Ranking of Kings' New Anime Reveals Release Date, Episode Details

Ranking of Kings is coming back with a new anime later this Spring, and now fans can know when to tune in with Ranking of Kings: Treasure Chest of Courage confirming its release date and dropping some curious details about how long we can expect it to stick around. Ranking of Kings was one of the biggest new anime franchise debuts of the last few years, and only grew in popularity the more fans got to see what kind of secret weapon it really was. It was no real surprise to find out that the Ranking of Kings anime had plans to return for a new project. 

While it's not exactly Ranking of Kings Season 2, Ranking of Kings announced that it would be returning in 2023 with a new anime special. But while the franchise has been coy about what to expect from this special, the latest update on Ranking of Kings: Treasure Chest of Courage is all the more exciting as it might be sticking around for more than a single planned episode as it's currently scheduled to "air every Thursday" in program listings overseas.
