Last October, no one could have seen how popular Ranking of Kings would become. The series started humbly enough under Wit Studio, but that narrative changed as more and more fans tuned into it each week. It didn't take long for season one to become a breakout hit, and now fans are already begging for season two in light of its first's big finale.
The final episode of Ranking of Kings season one went live today, and it was just as good as you'd expect. The release was as emotional as it was satisfying, but there are still tons of strings left untied. This means fans are desperate for a new season announcement, but Wit Studio hasn't said whether or not one will be ordered.
Given how successful Ranking of Kings has been, it is hard to imagine the show ended with one season. It has been a consistent member of Crunchyroll's most popular series since it dropped, and audiences in China have flocked to the show to boot. And as the manga is still being published by Sasuke Tok with 12 volumes to date, there is plenty more content for Wit Studio to adapt.
As you can see in the slides below, fans are already begging for season two, and their pleas won't stop any time soon. Wit Studio will hopefully give word either way on the anime's future before long, so here's to hoping season two is in the works already!
Want to know more about Ranking of Kings? You can check out its official synopsis below:
"How prosperous your nation is, how many powerful warriors it boasts, and how heroic and strong its king is. These are the criteria that factor into the system known as the Ranking of Kings. The main character, Bojji, was born the first prince of the kingdom ruled by King Bossu, who is ranked number seven. But Bojji was born unable to hear and is so powerless that he can't even swing a sword. In consequence, his own retainers and the public, look down upon him as completely unfit to be king. It is then that Bojji finds his first friend, Kage, and Bojji's life takes a dramatic turn."
