The barbaric warrior Rance loves nothing more than the company of beautiful women. Traveling around the continent with his faithful slave Sill Plain, Rance takes on odd jobs for a chance to appease his insatiable libido. Although his perverted instincts often land him in hot water, people from far and wide nevertheless laud his heroic feats.

While undertaking a request to locate a missing noble girl, Rance and Sill arrive in the majestic Kingdom of Leazas. As they split up to investigate several leads, Rance finds himself aiding the townsfolk with various problems, from rescuing a kidnapped barmaid to purging an undead outbreak. Amassing both fortune and females, the warrior eventually uncovers a dark secret within the kingdom that only he can stand against.

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"""
It really outshines every other show on the market right now. My enjoyment with the show was mainly due to the 𝐂𝐋𝐈𝐌𝐀𝐗 which was perfectly portrayed and shot with a nice read more

Rance 01 : Hikari wo Motomete The Animation, is a HENTAI, so here it goes~

-Story : this one is one of few hentai i've watched with some stories bound into it. The story revolves around our MC, Rance, in his quest to find Hikari. 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

I just had to review this

This is the first time I've watched an Hentai, and I must say that it was a weird experience, it wasn't really my cup of tea.

But, however, for some reason I actually enjoyed it. The plot was not as bad as I thought it would be. Rance 01 is like like any other action/fantasy series out there. - A hungry hero showing absolute fulFILLment to his assigned mission (with girls along the way) that keeps fighting for justice. LOL. I mean, haven't we all watched a series just like that before?

I won't be watching something like this read more

I don't know but after rewatching this hentai for like 4,5 times i just felt urge to write review to this.

Story: Now story is about Rance that is doing quest, and punishing girls with wild sex through story. As the story develops there is cuter and cuter characters, final boss is queen :p 9/10

Art: Art was great but there were some scenes that maded me think what the f*ck. Example scene is when in the middle of thing he start kissing fast af and it doesn't hit with the sound so it was like nonsense. 9/10

Sound: Didn't really heard any music cause i was so read more
