Telepathy Shoujo Ran – 12

Midori, Rin, and Rui try to find out where Ran is and rescue her before its too late.

Impressions:

I thought this episode was pretty good. It was coming off of a strong episode with some rather dark focus, so it was bound to be interesting. I definitely prefer this kind of episode over the ones where nothing really happens and they perhaps could say it’s for character development. The mysteries that they deal with, when they actually manage to do them, are most of the time very interesting. Although they have to do with supernatural powers a lot, so it’s not like it’s an ordinary occurrence to come across these, that’s part of the fun.

I’m still very disappointed in amount of focus they’ve given to Rui. It seemed like his powers, which were very different from Ran and Midori, were very very important. They they’ve hardly ever shown him being anything other then an ordinary human. Hell, if you missed the first two episodes or so you’d have no idea he had some kind of powers, which is a shame as it had a lot of potential.

One thought on “Telepathy Shoujo Ran – 12”

  1. Agree completely about Rui. Its really been a waste so far I think. Its almost like they forgot he’s supposed to have some sort of special ability. Hope they don’t do something stupid like making that the focus of the final couple of episodes. So in the end he’ll be important at the start, at the end, but just kind of there in the middle. The abilities of Midori and Ran have been given a lot of focus, but he’s just not getting much.

    Overall the episode leaves with mixed feelings. Surprised to find the brother wasn’t dead to be honest. But good for him to hang in there. Though why they were keeping him alive is beyond me since it seems like a short term solution to just hold him there. Also the spirit of the daughter saving her father when he tried to commit suicide. What was the point? He’s just going to rot in a cell for the rest of his short life. Or Ran’s incredible logic. “I don’t understand….but your still wrong.” Just slap her on a debate team :).

    Still enjoy these kinds of episodes a lot more than the normal stuff. Getting to use their abilities in tough situations and see how lives have been twisted by it. Villagers were a bunch of jerks who deserved what they got. Having an innocent kid die because they didn’t want to treat her is just low.

    Fairly good mini-arc I thought.
