Though, they won’t actually be at the beach, with the Ranking of Kings summer festival special event being held at the Tokyo International Hall on July 10 in two sessions, though the day session is already booked out. The cast from the TV anime series is set to make an appearance.
Ranking of Kings is based on the manga of the same name by Sosuke Toka and features animation directed by Yosuke Hatta at WIT Studio. Crunchyroll is streaming the entire series in both subbed and dubbed formats, describing it as such:

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…
