It’s almost been a week since the 2nd cour opening of Ranking of Kings came out, and the official upload of the video has exceeded 1 million views on YouTube. Vaundy performs the new song “Naked Hero”, and the opening is certainly one of the best ones we’ve seen in winter so far. Yamashita Shingo, who previously directed both of the JUJUTSU KAISEN openings, was in charge of the direction. You can watch the opening again:

The first part ranked 7th in our Fall 2021 anime of the season poll, taking 4.86% of the votes. The opening of the 2nd cour deserves a lot more than 1 million views, and Ranking of Kings will probably only get more popular by the end of its run. Funimation streams the anime, and they describe the story:
Unable to hear or speak, Prince Bojji sets off on an adventure to prove that he’s a worthy heir…with the help of a shadow named Kage.
