Come on in and join the wonderful world of Ran Uruma, growing girl and magical wunderkind! Watch as she runs into, often times literally, a varied cast of humans, sorcerers, people in-between, and embodiments of ancient insatiable and all devouring evils. Buoyed by fantastic art, this is a fun exploration of a magical world and a great story about family, growing up, and relationships of all colors and shapes using a varied set of perspectives and a substantial cast of characters.
Jin needs his cape to transform into a wolf while Ran can manifest wings without any equipment. Does this mean Ran qualifies for her father's Crow Squad now?
She seems significantly younger than both Shizuka and Zen. So I doubt the love triangle thing. Probably just met the guy a good amount because they're both pretty important figures.
We saw at the school that Jin doesn't actually need his cape to transform. He could transform whenever he wants as long as he wants to do it. The cape might just be the equivalent of training wheels. Ran seems more like Shizuka, who's powers are "Anything she wants to do". Jin and Zen seem more constrained.
Now for the extra. A meeting between Otaro and the Crows.
And with that, we end today. Got to see some growth in Ran's magical training. And Nio get her groove back. Tamao even acted like an adult, after first molesting Ran just a bit. All in all a great time. And nothing at all weird happened with Otaro.
Hope you all had a good time. Did you ever have a big accident trying to show off your skills?
Zen might have been her buddy when she was younger. Given that he's a pretty accepting guy and she couldn't use magic.
I was worried about you user! I'm glad to see you back! Thank you for sticking with us.
glad to see you're back! I was wondering what happened to you
I read this manga a while back and wanted to discuss it, glad to see that I have a place to do so. Spoilers ahead: I love this manga, but the romance with the older guy is really awful, I can really deal with most stuff in most manga, but he REALLY creeped me out, everytime I thought that he would be gone for good, the story would bring him back, I hated him so goddamn much, especially because Ran was very childish too. On the other hand, the kid love interest, I could see from the start of what the author might be planning with him, and I didn't really want to see a bully turn into a romance, I thought that I would hate him, but he turned out to bee such a great character, his growth over the manga is my favourite part of it, and him getting a happy ending made me very happy, can never recommend this manga to others because of the pedo old fuck though, why was everyone else so okay with it in this manga, I never got.
I think that's a pretty common view. Otaro.... can be rough. That he thinks Ran is a near adult does make it slightly more palatable. But it is pretty sleazy even when given the benefit of the doubt. And when considering that Ran is mentally a child, I don't really know what the author was thinking when she put Ran in some of those situations.
Hibi is bestboy. He earns his redemption.
They're special snowflakes
Seriously, there are plenty of times where the author gets the chance to kick him out of the story only to bring him back in, and the creepiness factor only increases. And he has absolutely no redeeming factors either, he is a gigantic asshole to boot, the entire relationship is so very disgusting.
He goes out on a good note at least. I felt that his death, while not redeeming him, did at least let him die in a restorative manner.
Puns deserve punishment
I feel the same as you, but the mangaka was clearly a fan of Otaro. She even drew them married yet didn't give us something like that for Ran x Hibi.
