Serious guys. If you just think of Ranka as a clueless wonder, it really puts everything in perspective. Just like a dog, which she has been compared to appearance wise a lot, I believe also points to her personality. Intensely loyal to the one that gives her the most attention or who the dog views as their master or owner. Very one track minded in what keeps their interest the most at that time. Very easy to please by positive reinforcement of any kind.

Alto is the owner/human. See her goals throughout the series and realize how one track minded she is on something she is focused on and how she doesn't notice anything outside that track. As for positive reinforcement, people praise her, they pet her, they save her, they spoil her.

I know it's not entirely fair to compare Ranka to an actual Dog but the similarities in some behaviors is oddly similar and very disturbing. Couple that with her dog ear hair movements and it's down right fracked up.

Yeah, I've said the same thing numerous times. It's just, she was supposed to get over that without becoming a total bitch like Sheryl...

Dude, honestly, where in the world did you actually see Sheryl behaving like a total bitch? I'd like some examples, please.

Honestly, this seems like trolling for the sake of trolling, now...

Every time she bit her lip and pretended to care about her people.

That's not much of a response, man. Arguments, please. Lip-biting doesn't equal bitch-like behavior.

What do you expect? Sheryl avoided interacting with people as much as possible throughout the series, besides Alto. Only cares about singing, has an unpositive outlook on people and life in general, and by gods for whatever reason the only person she holds in any regard is a retard like Alto.

@Wesley84: And that, even if your points seem quite unreasonable to me (I mean, she cares about EVERYONE, if she's willing to give up her life for the fleet's sake), makes her a bitch? Just because she cares about Alto? Because she puts singing above everything else? That's all she has, anyway.

I dunno, you don't have much of a point, there, it seems.

Never claimed self-serving is inherently unbeneficial to everyone else.

Telling what? Would you elaborate some more, didn't quite get your point.

Go bitch to Yoko Kanno if you want. The joke about Ranka=dog is from the OST tracklisting where her image song is titled "Dog Ear Ranka".

Seriously, what do you expect Kawamori to say when asked such a question?
"Sheryl (or Ranka) is teh sux! Ranka(or Sheryl)4Life!"?

He'd disrespect one of the leads, and the other half of the rabid fanbase will stone him with stones. It's the only diplomatic answer he can give.

The other one, "Evening Ranka, Daytime Sheryl" would be so wrong.

He should have pushed through his original idea, rather than being bitter about it the entire series.

Hmmm... no. You didn't make a lick of sense, so... aw, who am I kidding? Better let it go, now.

Seifall fails at so many levels its no longer funny. Look, its not the fans who started with the dog craze, it was the producers themselves who dubbed Ranka as a puppy.

Yeah, haha, no shit. It is pretty telling, isn't it? Why the hell do I want Ranka in the 'evening'? Yes, please, we need a lolicon rape case, now!

Besides, come think about it, lets pretend Sheryl isn't in the picture, but if I was Alto, why the hell do I want to hook up with Ranka? Just so I can receive cool bonuses like having Ozma and Berera as in-laws? I mean, seriously? Those guys? Yes PLEASE, grant my deathwish for the day!

Shit, they are scarier than Vajra.
