Anime Description: Elf Princess Rane

Go Takarada has found a map that says there's an ancient treasure in a shrine. While searching for this treasure, he upsets the shrine's guardian, and since the shrine is on the top of a 30-story building, Go falls off, and then runs into the elf princess Rane Che Pani Coras, who appears to him naked. When Go and Rane speak to each other, it sounds like a bunch of non-sequitirs to the other, but that doesn't stop Go from trying to find the treasure with her. Go believes that Rane will lead him to the ancient treasure. Mari finds her own elf, an elfin witch named Leen. Leen was sent to kill Rane. Will Go and Rane find the treasure of the four hearts?

Mari is Go's best friend, who gets sucked into the adventure. It's her birthday, but nobody seems to realize this until the very end of the show. Mizuki Takarada is Go's sister and a shrine maiden. Takuma Zenshuin speaks backwards for no apparent reason most of the time. Most of his dialogue is "Try out this anime." He also has a thing for Mari, and does a strange rap tune about her. Haruki is the leader of a band of people known as the Fire department. Their involvement is not made very clear. Ukin is a very tall and proper butler.

Fans of Excel Saga will like the weird plotline and strangeness of this anime. The ending states the sales of the anime OVA would determine if there was an episode 3. Apparently, it did not sell well enough to justify making episode 3.

The Ecchi classification is for nudity by Rane, Mari, Leen, and Mizuki.
