Title: Ran fans unite!
Post by: harogenki299 on April 30, 2007, 01:57:34 AM
I like Ran for reasons:
1. She's kawaii and hot(like Lum) :9~
2. She spoils Rei
3. She's defenseless on the outside, but it's the very exact opposite on the inside
4. She's one of the best UY females imo

Note: When I said she spoils Rei, for the record, this is what I mean:

I hope, I could find Ran fans like me.  :D)

I admit that Ran is on my Top 10 anime babe list (Lum will always be my #1 O+). Her split personality is what makes her funny. The episodes depicting the relationship between Lum and Ran are among the best episodes in the series. :D)

she changes suddently from happy to angry or the opposite!
she is very dedicated to rei. I just cant stop laughing when she sends little Ran's dolls to her friends and then they explode its very funny. I love her laugh and her personality because she is really funny. she is one of the mosts hilarious characters in UY

I'm a huge Ran-chan fan! I find her very interesting because she's not one-dimensional. She's knowledgeable in many subjects like cooking, tea parties, witchcraft, weaponry, technology, and of course, girliness. She has a great body and in my opinion, she would easily win (or runner-up) any beauty/fashion contest between the UY ladies. As long as she doesn't see or think about Lum, she might just be the perfect girlfriend...or maybe not. ;D

I especially like it when she's so happy that she does a little yelp and jumps up in the air (and hangs up there for a couple of seconds!). :D

If you think Ran's vicious, piss-off, fanged face is scary, you should see the huge pagan star she has in one of the rooms of her spaceship/house.

Ran is one of the best characters in UY. I think that Ran has no reasons to be mean or fight with Lum but the episodes with Ran are very funny

Ran,one of the fundamental characters in the UY universe,she can make both yer dreams and nightmares in reality

My favorite scene involving Ran. I love the way she shouts "Daaaarrrliiing!!!" as she's chasing after Lum and Ataru. :D)

Here's a screencap of Ran putting on her sweet, cute little girl act.

And here's a screencap of Ran when she's pissed-off at Lum.

VEry good points of view.
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: cata on June 06, 2007, 07:19:26 PM
I agree with Dark. Those teeth are scary. Anyone would run away if someone was with that expression on his face.
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: Necron 99 on June 06, 2007, 10:16:47 PM
Lum's not the only alien who has fangs. The only difference is that Ran's fangs appear only when she's either scheming or angry. Lum's fangs appear sometimes when she's being cute. :)
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: cata on June 06, 2007, 11:48:04 PM
True. Rei's fangs appear when he is changing to that big cow.

Lol. Why not?

She's a cute woman and she feeds others very well.
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: cata on June 07, 2007, 04:50:53 PM
Lol. I would like to taste her food. She is a good cooker. She is not like Lum.
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: Shutaro on June 07, 2007, 08:46:05 PM
She seems a little bit psychopathic. Not the best qualities in a woman but extremely interesting... I would therefore let her date me, unfortunately for her, she only has eyes for Rei  :?

If i was forced to rate her from 1 to 10 (1 being female Ataru, 10 being Lum)
she is worth a good 8.5 and 2 thumbs up :P

All her life has been under the burden of some bad luck

True.

Post by: Kroptik on June 09, 2007, 01:04:38 AM
Ran's split personality is what makes her a great character. ;D

But if she was real, I'd wish she didn't have that "other self" (the angry one).
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: cata on June 09, 2007, 09:23:29 PM
It would be fun if I had a friend like her.

true and false
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: cata on June 10, 2007, 09:46:03 AM
I would run away when she is mad but I would have lots of fun, too.
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: DarkDevil on June 11, 2007, 11:29:12 AM
That's why.
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: cata on June 11, 2007, 11:31:58 AM
I knew that. But I always laugh when she is angry. I can't help it. But I prefer to stay with an angry Ran than with an angry Oyuki.
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: DarkDevil on June 11, 2007, 11:35:42 AM
True, and I sometimes wouldn't like to be close to her.

I think Ran is officially my second favorite female character in the series. Lum will always be my #1. :D)

I really love the dress Ran wore in Movie 3. ^^

Ran,a wolf dressed as a sheep

Yes... all because of love (Rei).

The only thing I don't like about Ran-chan is her laugh.

Her split personality is easy to handle because it takes a while for her to "anger up" before she goes nuts. On the other hand, she can revert back to her cute, girly self in a split-second. :)

Originally ran's evil side was known as having  big fangs,evil eyes and medusa-like hair,but it changed to a simple angry form and voice

Change is good...especially for Ran-chan. ;D

I love Ran because she can be sweet and devious at the same time. And she's incredibly cute.

Yeah, how one minute she's nice and girlish, then the next she's a total jerk lol I don't know any other character like that, so Ran's got my interest

^ Daa!! Daa!! Daa!! is an Anime that features a pink curly haired that is almost just like Ran in personality and in appearance. Give it a watch. ;)

Let's not forget Rumiko's minor work "Maris the super-gal" which protagonist is pretty much clone a of Ran! XD

#Invalid YouTube Link#

In the manga the resemblance is even greater!

I think the animators that designed it were the same of Lamù: if you pay attention Maris has her own facial expressions!
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: cata on May 08, 2011, 01:21:49 PM
^ If Lum and Shampoo are alike, what to say of Ran and Maris? xD

But Maris, to me, is like... Well... If Benten and Ran were to have a baby together, it would be Maris. xD

Post by: GiovaneDinamitardo on May 08, 2011, 11:27:32 PM
hi hi, there's nothing to do: THEY SHARE THE SAME DNA OF THE HAND THAT DRAWS THEM !!   ;D ;D

Post by: GiovaneDinamitardo on May 10, 2011, 02:43:13 PM
I see that japanese animators are amused to play with the details of other anime.

Take a look at this image took from the opening "Rock the Planet"

(http://www.lum-chan.com/gallery/20_05_12_06_5_58_45.JPG)

Oh yeah: Ran is wearing the same suit of Maris !!

I don't have the right url but I remember so clear that in a frame from "Remember My Love" the supergirl makes a cameo of few seconds.

Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: cata on May 11, 2011, 12:52:33 PM
That is SO awesome!
Title: Re: Ran fans unite!
Post by: Cosmic King on May 18, 2011, 04:33:08 PM
I agree with you, Uncle Gio, now that I am looking at that screencap from "Rock the Planet" and remembering the OVA of Maris the Super-Girl

Maybe they are from the same species or planet
