Appearances can be misleading. Yoko from Gurren Lagann was 14 after all.

Would you believe I still haven't seen that series?

Also, about the whole "by myself" comment made by Sheryl. Yeah, I hadn't picked up on that the first time around, and I forgot to mention it in my previous post. It seems interesting she'd be preoccupied by something like this so early on, right?

Regarding Ranka looking younger then her age, it doesn't help that you have characters like Alto, Michael, Nanase and Sheryl around her. Plus her childlike personality adds to that. Though let's not forget Luca who's obviously sporting the shouta image.

Ranka looks like a kid.., because she's an asian15 year old girl

While Sheryl is 16 year old france, ...that's why her looks is more mature...

Alto is a17 year old japanese boy...

Michael looks like a 16 year old german, clan looks like a 7 years old brazillian girl

Indeed.

It also doesn't help that more recent illustrations of Ranka make her look way younger than Sheryl. Granted, Sheryl has a different body type, but even face shape can make a huge difference in how your age is perceived (which makes dressing as younger characters difficult sometimes for older Layers). Heck, in middle school I was mistaken for an adult lots of times.

No, she doesn't. Most seven year olds around these parts are better developed than her.

I see... Poor clan is there a way for her to be normal like an adult even in micro size
If only she can be like mylene...

Michael and clan would be a lovers already...

If he didn't bite the dust she'd be a teenager in a few years and all. It'll be like he's with a younger girl. It'd pay off in the long run.

Her micron form won't change for a while, or at all really. Not until she reaches old age.

Huh? I thought the defect was that it made her younger. Or is it instant loli forever? That'd suck for her.

Blast, I've been wrong about so much lately. I'm shame faced.

My media HDD died last week - WD Green 2TB, not even four months old - and with it my entire anime collection among other important files.

I've just about maxed this month's data allotment trying to recover my current series and I have gotten Frontier again so I'll start my rewatch again over the next few days.


And oh hell, I didn't think Sheryl was only fourteen! I was thinking extremely late teens at the earliest. Was it ever expressed in the anime or is this character file information?

From where did you get she was fourteen? The assumption is that she was seventeen throughout the series.

I am wondering as well. I thought Ranka is 14/15 as well and Sheryl ~17 - 18.

I think he mistook Sheryl for Yoko from Shiroth's little fun fact a couple of pages back.

Ranka is 16 throughout the vast majority of the series. Her birth date is written on Leon's file of her: 29 April 2043.

And yeaaaah, Sheryl is definitely older than 14. Supposedly her birthday is 23 November 2041, though it is never given in the series, which fits with other material that indicates she was 17 throughout the entire series.

<imagines a 14 year old Sheryl>

That'd be interesting.

Not like that, you pervy wankers.

I draw the line at everything below 15 years. Which still is pretty low for a 35 year old, but looking don't hurt.

Sorry it was late. I meant Sheryl being sixteen.

But Yoko being fourteen is still as outrageous...
