Rance 01 anime adaption confirmed
Who is hyped for it?
Who should voice Rance and Sill?
Will you buy it to try and get the later games adapted?
>Rance anime adaptation confirmed
>Who should voice Rance
Well I thought whoever voiced him in the OVA did a pretty good gahaha
I don't see that sentiment being implied in the post you're responding to. While the erotic content of the Rance games may not be the main draw in many cases, an adaptation that removes any prominent story or thematic aspect of a game may result in a wholly different experience and this deserves some concern.
Eroge is a completely different story (and even when they get names like Wakamoto it's generally just small roles). H-anime do not have the budget to hire big name actors which is why it's mostly filled with nobodies or people who rarely work outside hentai/eroge.
>Didn't realize Sugita really liked doing gay porn voices.
You probably have never heard of his radio show or Bluraji. He always makes it a point to talk about Nakamura for at least a few minutes.
Rance's goal is to fuck girls. If they changed that to dating girls like they did for Toushin Toshi II it will be retarded.
Not to mention that Lia is kidnapping girls to have them raped.
Hell, Ryouta Ohsaka's been in hentai, though I suppose he hasn't become popular until fairly recently.
I've watched Bururaji and Tokyo encounter, but that doesn't mean his gayness for Nakamura counts for much when voicing with others.
He also works on quite a few otome anime, and gets into quite a few awkward situations with Hosoya and his company junior Ono Yuuki.
Sugita, despite balding, has been very good with interacting with women and making them feel comfortable and laughing, so it shouldn't be that hard for him to find someone to marry.
But why doesn't he?
Answer is simple.
I'm pretty sure Rance has a strict "no homo" policy
I wonder what alicesoft will do after rance ends.
It's not like they have anything more popular than rance to survive on.
And very few of the alicesoft girls manage to be more popular than other girls from other vn studios.
That's not true! That's impossible!
I think Ran is pretty shit and has the worst route but at the same time it always breaks my heart when
Suzaku bursts out in the other routes holy shit that fucking SPLAT sound.
RIP Tori, SHADE, and lolicon guy.
Which I thought was pretty well deserved, given how cool she was about the whole affair. I'd want to revive her if she had to die at my expense and she behaved the way she did.
Exactly, it's Rance. I would expect a quality experience. Something you're not going to get from a hentai studio. It should have been Silver Link or XEBEC and just replaced the sex with super lewd scenes.
Not really, no. There is a chronology but you don't need to follow it to enjoy the individual games as while they do reference prior events, they are self contained with a mostly fresh cast of characters (as well as a few returning ones) other than Rance and Sill (and perhaps Kanami)
I recommend Sengoku Rance if you want to be introduced to the series.
Sequential Order is best, but can't really do that.
Despite that the games tend to be somewhat standalone. You can play Sengoku without prior knowledge of the series, Though playing the previous games would help with your enjoyment of the series.
Can't read moon, no. Downloading Sengoku now. I'm not really seeing anything else translated though. What would be best after it(if anything else is even translated). Also where is Sengoku chronologically?
>not having a Rance while playing through Rance games
Wakamoto voiced this guy
Rance I is translated (the 2013 remake is untranslated. It has a translated digest version. Read the digest version after Sengoku
Rance II has a graphic updated version which is translated. Play it after I
Rance III and IV are translated. Play after II. They start expanding on the setting and are where the series starts getting good.
4.1 and 4.2 are translated short games.
Kichikuou Rance is the first epic game. It follows off from Rance IV but was later retconned. Translation patch will be out in a few months.
Rance 5D continues on from IV. It's 35% translated and in active translation.
Rance VI is the best in the series. Translation has just started.
Sengoku Rance is VII.
Rance Quest is VIII and is getting translated. Rance IX is the most recent game.
Are you trying to say it can't be fucked up?
Because everything that CAN be fucked up WILL be fucked up and a Rance anime can DEFINETELY get fucked up
Come on, I know some of you guys have played untranslated Rance. Is it possible that the English Patch fucked up the game and gave Aburako a broken ability she was never meant to have?
On topic, I kind of wish they'd just make a Sengoku Rance anime since it's the only one I know.
I don't really care about plot so much. Gameplay is more important. Do 6 and 9 have better gameplay than Sengoku?
How would I go about getting a patched, non-English version of Sengoku?
According to this site, Aburako is supposed to have End-game points, and I can't find a Japanese source saying otherwise. To be fair, I'm not very good at searching for stuff in Japanese, but is it possible that the English-patch fucked the game up?
I'm downloading version 104. If I make it to Aburako again and she doesn't have Convert Action 1, then that will confirm that the English Patch fucked the game up.
There's nothing about Aburako in these patch details.
Pretty sure he's roughly 23 or something. 01 has him at 18 I think, 02 takes place a year later, and each game takes place a year after the previous one as far as I know. I don't think it was explicitly stated in Sengoku, but I might be wrong, its been a while since I played it.
My bets on like 22 or 23 as of IX
KR is just a guess of mine.
21 seems plausible because as you say Arios loses his powers.
It does mean that 5D can happen in the same timeline as KR (but before KR). Would explain why Feliss doesn't appear in KR
2013 is the Rance 1 remake which is getting adapted. Rance IX is the latest game in the series.
So it has him at his youngest and oldest he has appeared in series.
The girls don't seem to age to the same extent though (but they are younger than he is)
Would they even adapt 02 into anime? From what I can tell we're lucky to even get 01. I doubt we'll see more Rance in anime form, though I'd LOVE to see them adapt all the games. It'd be fucking great, but I just don't see it happening.
One day I'll expand that for 01 and IX
I hope he will be voiced by Nobuhiko Okamoto.
Ludo retired but recruited two replacemnts- Aten and Aristoles.
Arunaru will release Kichikuou Rance in a few months.
Aten is 35% through 5D and Aristoles is 3.5% through VI.
Quest is around 10% done by Maria.
3, 4, 4.1 and 4.2 have been translated (by Maria)
They had sex but showed no nipples or penis etc.
I think you could squeeze it down to a three episode OVA by removing some unnecessary parts but I fear they're doing the standard 2 episode hentai adaption which won't even suffice for the sex alone.
02 anime when?
The other girls make up for the lack of Kanami.
>see how Ludo's doing
He's not doing 5D anymore, or any translations for that matter, but others are working on them. All the Rance games are being worked on that haven't been already done, besides 01 and 9.
Doesn't seem like he's heard the news yet.
Daikuji was 5 or 6 episodes.
That is what I want.
Otherwise they'd have to eliminate most of the shopkeeper girls and just have the start->bandits->castle->haunted mansion->finale
it's hard to pinpoint when but there has been a cultural shift over the years.
I'm guessing that most people who started posting after 2011 (possibly a plurality of posters) only know Rance as 'that rape game' and have never played Sengoku
We're living in the Rance age, though. Rance games are getting translated more than any other VN series and new shit's getting announced all the time. We'll get 03 and 04 soon enough, with it all leading up to X.
>He always makes it a point to talk about Nakamura for at least a few minutes.
They've been best friends for over 10 years and have hung out since college. Of course he always talks about him.
Lia: Rance, darling! Please, be my king and pleasure me at my bedside every night. Stay with me!
Rance: Sorry baby, I can't be tamed like that. I'm like the wind, I rape where I please.
Probably the best Rance game to make a non porn adaptation of would be sengoku. The important plot points where sex is required could easily be implied. It would end up being more gore than anything with all the popping.
Rance is really bad at analogies. Take this scene from IX.
(Rance trying to persuade Shizuka that he hangs out with many girls but that he rarely expresses intimate feelings for them, unlike he does to her)
Rance: Well, certainly, I hang out with quite a number of girls.
Rance: But, because I like them all, I can't choose... Well no, it's more like I choose not to because of it.
Rance: Say for example, if you had to pick between Udon and Curry to eat, and you like both, you wouldn't be able to choose, right?
Shizuka: ...What if you eat Curry Udon?
Rance: ......No, wait....Ah.... that was a bad analogy.
But they initially started with two and produced the others due to the success of the first. The plot of the game makes it easier to shove further episodes in.
With Rance 1 it's likely to end up either with a mangled or unfinished story.
Honestly it seems too simplistic to fuck up in terms of story.
Characterization, animation quality, voices, all that sure. But the plot? Like was said, the plot can be summed up in a short digest.
>Who should voice Rance
Toshihiko Seki would be a nice choice.
I always say that in Rance General but they say it doesn't fit.
Bullshit, the Momotaros voice hits all the different tones of Rance's spectrum.
Well that's not being very optimistic.
01's plot is basically "Rance goes here, fucks girl" repeated in 4 or 5 locations until he finds Lia and rapes her so hard that she stops being a sadist.
Not really, Rance is basically a detective in 01, he goes around trying to find Hikari and to do that he has to solve some subplots and eventually deal with Lia. The sex only occurs because that's Rance being Rance. I wonder if they'll include the shopkeep girls though.
Less important then Menando
They really need to nail Rance, Sill, Kanami and Lia though. And probably Maris though there is some leeway with her because she only really has cameos in future games.
I don't really like footjobs but Willis' scene was great.
My main hope is that they don't make it all about the sex and keep the humour and character interactions which makes Rance Rance
Was IX a big sucess in Japan, or how come there's a market for a Rance animation now?
Interested in it though. I wonder what they make out of the material
It was Alicesoft that was preventing an adaption in the past.
TADA said that he wanted to spend so much money on X, even if it sent the company bankrupt. So they're probably revenue raising for a massive finale
Because the series is nearing its end, and a lot of oldschool series like to rev up the adaptations once that happens. The same thing happened with JoJo, by the time they get to part 8 Araki will be at least halfway through Part 9.
IX was actually on top of sales lists for a month or so after it got started selling. But we have no idea how much of a seller it is right now.
All we know that the Rance series, starting from 5D, which even now is still selling, has sold in the top 10 of all eroge franchises in Japan.
What releases did you play? Or if anybody else knows that'd be great?
I've heard people saying to not play the originals but to just read the digest. Then 3, 4, 4.1, 4.2 until whatever's next?
Play the translated version of 2.
Then wait a few months for Kichikuou and then wait patiently for 5D, VI and Quest. Though 5D is 35% done.
But Rance is still Rance and he's great. Plus Lia rape
That make sense, thank you.
Maybe they chose to adapt it for that reason, making people wonder if the story will go anywhere interesting and buy the game.
But the Japs still don't animate anything behind the 2nd season... And i want the whole Rance serie to be animated!
Also, do we know if it'll be just an OVA?
Oh oh, do we know if the game Alicesoft will tell us about soon is Rance X, supposedly the last game and the remake of a "bigger" Kichikuou, or just a .5 so they can keep surfing on money?
I don't know about the original version being on sale or not but wouldn't people buying the game go for 01 instead of the original?
>Kichikuou literally sold millions
Goddammit and there's still no translation. I need to learn moon faster.
It's no coincidence that the game where he marries Lia at the start is the best in the series.
The game is Bladebrider. It will be an srpg.
The Kichikuou patch will be released in a few months.
Though you'd be better off having played 1-4 first
The twitter just say that there's a plan for Rance anime, I hope it's not just an OVA.
>the remake of a "bigger" Kichikuou
Well this could be cool.
> in a few months.
Thank you for this glorious news.
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA MAKE IT STAPH
If i say that i moved to Japan and started to learn moon ONLY to play the whole Rance serie, would you believe me?
Apparently it'll be the last Rance, TADA said she wants to end it with 10 main games if i remember well.
The Windows 95 ports. For 2 I also played 02 and tried out the other versions.
I don't think the digest is necessary. 1 had some stupid mechanics where you had to bring up the same topic multiple times to get results but the game is fairly short.
>Reset otome game
>"good" routes where love blooms between you and one person or "evil" routes where you just fuck your way across the land and build a harem
I'd buy five fucking copies. Make this happen, Alicesoft.
Well I wonder what they're going to do with the universe after Rance is over, maybe the story will continue on with his childrens? Rangi being the typical honorable warrior traveling the land and learning the truth about his father, Reset Gahaha-ing across the land and raping little boys, and so on.
I'd pay full price for a Kou to protect.
Could this be the show that saves anime? I'm assuming regular anime fans won't watch because it glorifies rape. Therefore the possibility of Rance having lots of shitty fans is lessened.
Well that's a shame, the setting is interesting.
> Lia's kid
Hopefully he'll be raise by someone other than Lia, maybe Rick. Having Lia as a mother can't be good influence.
Then continue to fuck.
I would prefer it
if Rangi start to stop but Reset continue to rape him anyway. I just want to see Rangi crying while holding the blanket to his face and Reset smiling like her father feeling satisfied.
Let's be honest here, Rance games aren't even good. It got so popular here thanks to Sengoku, by far the best game in the series, getting translated. That's literally it.
There are much better eroges out there.
Great setting, characters, plots, music and even though for most of the games the gameplay is nothing special, it's still a classic series and a giant in the industry. Have you even played the games outside of SR and maybe 1-4?
Sounds good to me.
they meet and fall for each other and blushing adolescent romance ensues. They make cure virginal love, and he thinks he's found the one he wants to have sex in the missionary position for the purpose of procreation with for the rest of his life (since this is Isoroku's kid we're talking about here). But meanwhile, this triggers the awakening of Reset's Rance genes.
So the next time, after they find out they're related, goes something like
>Ahhh, my fair Reset, though I may ache for your touch, our love can never be, for we are brother and sister and it is forb--
>STOP YAPPING AND GET ON YOUR KNEES BITCH
>reverse rape ensues
And eventually he becomes her Sill.
Fuck, I know this won't happen but now I really want it.
>Leaving even less room for Rick.
The poor handsome swordman. He'll never get Maris.
And eventually he becomes her Sill.
More than acceptable conclusion, they'll complement each other well since Reset is a magic user and Rangi is most likely a melee warrior seeing how his mother fitted his armor. I just hope Reset won't be bullying him as much as his father bully Sill.
Nah, I doubt she would. I see her as less of a sadist and more of a cute funloving sex maniac, with a heroic/GAR side too. She wouldn't use him as a punching bag, but he'd still be the same kind of dragalong companion, battle support, and conscience/favorite rape target/secret true love.
Master of disguise
That would be Dark Rance
Nothing confirmed as of yet. Just that there will be an animation
He's only crazy on the battlefield though.
>conscience/favorite rape target/secret true love.
Glorious, now to hope that something bad wouldn't happen to Rangi, would be a shame if their relationship
He'll be the one who change her crystal's colour.
>>Who should voice Rance
Won't they just use the game soundtrack?
Rance 01 doesn't have that much rape because. Mostly because he's a small level adventurer and can't get away with it.
Though he does rape that bandit captive, a maid, break Kanami's hymen, coerce sex from Maris and deliver justice to Lia
>Gahahahaha~! Surrender and feel the awesome power of my Hyper Vortex, Nii-chan!
Wow, I just keep wanting this to happen more and more.
But wait, hold on - Rance's face when he finds out? We know how he feels about incest.
Deep down he's probably proud of them too, whether or not he admits it.
Possibly jealous that Reset beat his record by popping her cherry when she was only X months old.
Yeah, most likely.
Rance series ends
Reset series starts.
It's a good thing it's not SR. No one could do this dick justice.
Who does Kayblis?
They have to be both threatening but get across how much of a spaghetti dropping beta faggot he is
But Demon King Kayblis is perfect!
