Ranzi aka Ransie, Ranzee, Ranze, or Tokimeki Tonight is a 1982 romantic comedy series created by Group TAC which aired one season of 33 episodes on Tokimeki Tonight with the run ending sometime in October of that year. The series received it's greatest popularity around the Gulf Area of the Middle East where it's been praised as the 'greatest anime ever'.


Ranzi Eto (Ransie Lupescu in the Italian release) seems like your normal everyday teen, but looks are deceiving. Ranzi is actually the daughter of a Werewolf, and Vampire who come from another realm. Both had been banished partially due to their relationship, and must guard the gate between our world, and their realm. Due to her heritage Ranzi has a unique power of her own, the ability to become anything (object or person) she bites. The down side to this power is that she can only return to her natural form by sneezing. On her first day of school Ranzi encounters, and gains a romantic interest in a bash yet handsome athlete Shun Makabe (Paul Capo in the Italian release). The main conflict comes from her rivalry with the the pretty yet spiteful Yuko Kamiya (Lisa Thompson in the Italian release), the daughter of a Yakuza (Mafia in the Italian release) boss, who is also interested in the affection of Shun. However the most pressing of issues is that Ranzi's parents forbid her from dating a simple human as she's been engaged to someone in the Demon realm she's never met.


The series was created by Group TAC and the show based on the manga 'Tokimeki Tonight'. The manga had ended without concluding the story and the producers, creating the anime after the manga discontinued, had to devise an original ending.



The anime consists of 34 episodes.
