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.

Rance is easily the greatest hentai of all time. It is even better than a lot of mainstream anime.
It has become my favourite hentai & I will recommend it to anybody who is a man of culture.
It has the one of the best animation for a hentai that I've watched so far. There were some flaws but it is still pretty amazing.
It is one of the few hentai I've watched that has a great plot. The story was so great & I enjoyed it so much that I wanted it to continue for two or three more OVA series with our favourite MC Rance going ...

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 ...
