About the Plot
The story focuses on Bojji, a deaf, powerless prince who is unable to wield even a children’s sword. Being the firstborn son, he works hard and yearns to become the world’s greatest king.
But people talk behind his back and call him “a good-for-nothing prince” who will never become king. Bojji finds his first friend in Kage, a literal shadow who somehow understands Bojji well. Kage is actually a survivor of the Kage assassin clan that was completely wiped out.
Not an assassin anymore, Kage’s livelihood now depends on stealing. The story is about Bojji’s coming-of-age as he encounters various people in his life, starting with his friendship with Kage.
