Meh. Is that thing even canon? I don't recal her wearing a swim suit...

Besides - I like her best in that white dress with the blue lining and the neato big boots - like the gashaprom wave 1 figure has.

No poo! I could't recognize that it was Ranka when I first saw it. Blame it on the SMS grunt that paint it:

It's on Canalia's monster. So technically yes, and technically no.

Well, nevertheless, it looks great! I hope they release others, maybe modelled on the recent stickers that came with the release of Ranka and Bobby's Single and Sheryl's Brother Spaceship... esp. Sheryl. wink.gif

Also, this one is totally for the lolicons. Pass.

Actually - at least now we also know that the hair color is anime accurate. It isn't a heavy real green on the Monster - but a kind of yellowish/green tint.

As for the panties. I think she has panties on in that painting - you just can't see them... although - yeah - there's no panty line on her hips there...

non-anime accurate smile.gif

OMG! Look at the legs! They don't sit high enough in that crouched position!

THIS IS A DISASTER! The crotch is positioned TOO LOW and the ANKLES are horrendous!

I HATE IT! I HATE IT! That's why I'm only buying one of them.

It might be,I'd say we need a close up of the nose before I judge....I mean who really cares if the figure doesn't have underwear? is it really that big of a deal? : / It's underwear.

You know - the sucky thing is... when I first saw it - I thought: no - thighs to hefty, calves too fat and too big a gutt to be Ranka - and then suddenly, it turns out it's off the Monster - and yeah - the body type fits.

This makes me wonder - is that Ranka an artist's impression, or did she really model for it?

Because honestly, her body is way to beefed up in that pick - at least that's the impression I get when compared to her "in clothing" looks.

Still - might pick one of these up.

This is the womanly Ranka... you know, with the child-bearing hips and all-- too bad the boobs didn't develop as well... and I DEMAND ANIME ACCURACY! laugh.gif

One could argue so was Ranka in general. laugh.gif

It's an interesting piece..if only because it uses rather obscure piece of art for reference. I don't think it interests me beyond the curiosity of it all.

[..not that I haven't thought of a custom paint of a Konig Monster with that on the side, however.]

SK didn't, but, then again, SK's not the character designer. ;)

If I actually collected these type of figures, I'd buy ranka, no questions asked. Sadly though I don't really collect them.

I guess they just wanted to do something that wasn't so obvious. The Monster-pose is a good candidate. It threw me at first until someone pointed out where it came from.

I like it.

I'm a Ranka fan.

I'll get it.

And now here comes the real question: Is she taking her bra off? ....or...is she having trouble putting it on? smile.gif

Knowing our little munchkin - I'd wager that Ranka had trouble clipping/fastening the bra and was stumbling her way through the process - and maybe the artist decided to capture her that way, rather than wait for it to be fastened.

It's a very good character piece, in this sense, because it shows how so much of her cuteness flows from her clumsiness smile.gif
