Rance 01: Hikari wo Motomete The Animation is the greatest... masterpiece I've ever seen. This god-tier anime is high quality story up there with the likes of Jojo's, Cowboy Bebop, Monster, I might even say it surpasses all of them easily. The characters are very developed and filled with 𝐃𝐄𝐄𝐏 backstories, while the sound design just 𝐎𝐎𝐙𝐄𝐒 with quality. But I think the high point of the show would really be the quality """𝐏𝐋𝐎𝐓"""

Pretty mediocore if i may say, but Rance 01 executed the story really well, really better than i expected. From ep 1 to the end they kept me interested and entertained no matter how stupid it may sound. But yeah, who watch hentai for stories ?

- Art : the colors and animation are awesomely drawn. I guess there are some flaws read more
