The Unexpected Proposal – Ousama Ranking Ep 22 Review 

Now freed, Daida takes his late father’s advice of taking care of Miranjo a little too literally…This is a review and discussion for Ousama Ranking Ep 22.

Check out our previous episode review here

…Did King Desha just die? 

Is that what happens to the first-ranked kings? They are killed by the council and Old Gods due to their greed and ‘selfish desire’? 

Also, why did Daida interpret “take care of Miranjo” as “marry” Miranjo? 

I don’t know how I feel about that.  

Daida decides to marry the sorceress that read him bedtime stories and imprisoned his spirit into a mirror. The king wants what he wants, I guess? Ousama Ranking Episode 22

Miranjo basically caused chaos in the kingdom for untold years, just to suffer extreme despair for about an hour until Bojji and Daida saved her.  

Miranjo skirted out of her promise with the demon, her soul wasn’t consumed, and she now gets to live (happily ever after) with Daida in Bosse’s Kingdom? 

What kind of Disney shit is this? 

I seriously thought the happy-go-lucky tone was a troll, or a dream sequence. 

Are we sure we aren’t in some sort of collective genjutsu? 

Although I'm ranting about Daida, I would have loved if the show explored Bosse's struggle (and listlessness) after gaining power more thoroughly. Bosse was such an enigmatic character throughout the entire series, and this scene of him killing an old god was so powerful. I just wished it was explored more in Ousama Ranking.

I mean really, Daida? You want to marry the woman who only wanted you born to steal your body so that she could be with your father – the man she truly loved? 

Ugh. I knew last week this was going somewhere weird. Ever since we saw that dance between Bosse in Daida’s body and Miranjo’s automaton form. 

Now this stupid decision forced Desha’s hand. 

Why was the Ranking Council guy even there in Desha’s kingdom begging him to take first place? 

Did the recent first ranked king die or something?  

Is it because King Bosse died that they were finishing the re-evaluation? (which I thought was over when Daida failed miserably many episodes ago.) 

Gosh. Seriously, what the hell was that? 

Do you think Desha, being a demi-god, would be able to resist temptation against the treasure that drives all of the first-ranked kings mad? Much to the council guys chagrin? 

Is this what child Miranjo meant when she said she was “going to be a princess”? 

Good grief. I’m ending this here. 

But, tell me your thoughts. 

Daida's future wife reading him a bedtime story. Gosh, this is so weird...

Did Daida’s proposal to Miranjo – the source of all chaos in his kingdom – catch you off-guard? 

Do you think everybody forgave Miranjo a little too easily? 

And… 

Did the demon really just not want to consume his only friend’s soul?

I write in my personal time and I haven't published much at all. I don't know if that qualifies me as a writer or not, but I'd like to change that. I have a deep passion for travel, cinema and (mainly) East Asian things, but I plan on writing various things to keep it spicy. Let's prosper together ~ よろしくおねがいします。
