I played the first Rance game. It's buggy and overall shit aside from the dialogue but I played and beat it. I've played all the translated Rance games to date and beat them including all alternate routes.

What? How is the first game buggy? It's short, linear and barely has any gameplay.



I think he means those damn FUCKING annoying scenes, where you have to search through a closet or something like that, and Rance every time says "Theres nothing here" but after the millionth time he says "oh I found something useful" and THEN you can proceed with the story line.

Time for Rance to save anime.

I was just waiting for this kind of comment to come :v

After all, as a good Rance fanboy, I need to let the others to came first than me, 'cause I'm an awesome and invincible hero of justice.

I hope Rance gets like 100+ episodes because he deserves them they shouldn't treat Rance like an H series to begin with.

After enjoying sengoku rance I went and started playing the older games(currently on the third one). Setting the porn and sex aside, the sense of humor is off the charts in the games. I love how his train of thought flows and his rational for all the messed up, yet mostly logical, things he does. I can not wait for this, I'm hoping its not a full fledge hentie. If it is I hope they don't focus to much on the sex, which the first game didn't have much real meaningful sex scenes anyways that could get toned down.

Rance 4.2 is actually not canon

It's interesting you say that when you consider that a character from 4.2 mentions events that only occurred in 4.2 during Sengoku Rance.

Yeah never mind, flawed memories... Kichikuou Rance is one of the non-canons, oops.

To further explain Rance's personality, he was once building a sand castle (Rance 4.2) and a kid stepped on his sand castle. The kids were killed.


Rance 4.2 is actually not canon, but it's true that Rance does not spare children. Think of Sengoku Rance and what happens to our little hime, he goes into a fit of rage there.


Yep, not to mention that there's a couple kid commanders in SR. Rance is the true king.
