Ousama Ranking is a feel-good anime, with the star of the show being Bochi, a mute/deaf prince. Although Bochi does not say a single word throughout the show, he is a great character and someone who is easy to root for.
Ousama Ranking’s feels similar to an anime version of The Alchemist, and is an interesting take on a coming-of-age story. The show starts with Bochi being considered a useless failure because of his inability to fight, as he is supposed to be the next in line to become king (his dad is the current king and the best fighter in the country).
Although he suffers some major setbacks along the way, Bochi meets some wonderful characters who help him develop as both a person and fighter. The most influential of his new friends is Kage, who is an outcast himself (but who quickly becomes Bochi’s best friend and companion).
Ousama Ranking is just a really good anime that will have you smiling for most of the time. The characters are relatable in many ways and it is great to see them grow throughout the 24 episodes.

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
