Ranking of Kings: The Treasure Chest of Courage Episode 6

Bojji the King

Ranking of Kings: The Treasure Chest of Courage Episode 6 is the first episode to take place at the end of Season 1. It takes place during the final episode of the season. So, that means it’s possible that at least one episode will take place after Season 1.

The first of two stories in this episode focuses on Bojji’s short time as king of the Bosse Kingdom. This is after he saves the kingdom from Miranjo, Bosse, and the Demon. But, it’s also after Kage leaves the kingdom. And without his best friend, Bojji doesn’t know what to do.

He’s finally achieved his dream of becoming king. But at what cost? If being king means losing his best friend, then being king isn’t that important to Bojji. However, this first story takes place before Bojji decides to give up the crown.

Now, despite how he looks, Bebin is a nice guy who cares about Bojji. And he’s one of the first people to recognize the impact Kage’s absence has on the new king. So, to take Bojji’s mind off things, Bebin suggests they take a trip into town.

In town, Bojji interacts with a few of the children. While they’re the same size as him, we should keep in mind that Bojji is small for his age. He’s probably almost a teenager at this point. But, anyway, during this trip, he continues to show how much he cares for others.

He communicates with some children using sign language. He gives his clothes to a child whose clothes were eaten by goats. And he helps some girls find their lost pet bird. This was a nice change of pace for Bojji. But, we later find out Bebin was also using this outing to look for Kage.

The Melancholy of King Daida

The second story of Episode 6 takes place at the very end of the first season. This is when Bojji gives up the crown to Daida and sets off on his next adventure with Kage. But, rather than following Bojji, we’re following Daida this time around.

When Daida becomes king (for the second time), he recognizes how much the people like Bojji. Bojji is beloved by everyone. Daida, on the other hand, is partially seen as being to blame for the recent upheaval. After all, it was his body King Bosse was using when he usurped the throne with Miranjo.

And, to make matters worse, Miranjo is now Daida’s queen. So, to many, it might seem like they usurped the throne once more. With that in mind, Daida determines to take a page out of Bojji’s book and be a king of the people.

Like Bojji, he takes a trip into town to mingle with the commoners. And when he does this, he listens to the needs of the townspeople. He wants to know what their struggles are so he can help solve the problems the kingdom still faces.

One problem is what to do with the old barracks. Now that the kingdom is at peace, there’s no more need for the aging barracks. Rather than rebuilding them, Daida wants to set the land aside for something else. However, he’s not sure what to replace the barracks with. What does the kingdom need?

As soon as Daida ran into the blind and deaf man in town, the answer was clear. The kingdom needs a school that teaches sign language. But, even after that interaction, it took Daida a while to come to that conclusion. I guess he forgot that most people don’t actually know sign language.

Miranjo-sensei

Daida only has the idea to build a school after he catches Miranjo in the act of indoctrinating children. That’s right, she was teaching them wicked arts in secret, such as how to read, do math, and use sign language. Oh, and she was celebrating with the children and had a cake for them.

Apparently, the children love Miranjo and refer to her as sensei even though she’s the queen. So, it only makes sense for Miranjo to be the teacher at the new school Daida is going to build. It’s kind of the perfect solution to all their problems.

First, the kingdom gets a new school, which benefits society as a whole. Second, the construction workers get a job. Third, Daida gets the credit for having the school built on the grounds of the old barracks. And finally, Miranjo is able to repair her image by working with the children of the town.

Something I want to point out is the age difference between Miranjo and Daida. After Bojji saved the kingdom, Daida took Miranjo as his wife. But, this is a bit weird for a few reasons. The first is the obvious age difference between the two.

Miranjo looks young. But, she’s older than Daida. And I don’t mean slightly older. I mean like decades or centuries older. Regardless of her physical appearance, it’s weird for her to be married to a literal child. I get that Daida is mature and the king. But, he’s also like 10 years old or something.

That’s not the weirdest part of their relationship, though. As you may remember, Miranjo was Bosse’s mistress. So that means Daida took his late father’s mistress as his wife. That has to be weird for everyone. Like, how does Hiling feel about that?
