Ran is editor in chief of Taiyo High's newspaper. Although she's still a freshman, Ran has already earned a reputation in Taiyo High as the resident "Scoop Girl", due to the fact that she is always on the hunt for the latest gossip, juicy story, or anything that sparks her interest. She is a spirited girl, almost as hot-blooded as upperclassman Batsu Ichimonji and her gym teacher Hayato Nekketsu. She has a strong desire to succeed, and always goes for the gold. 

Rival Schools: Nekketsu Seishun Nikki 2, she investigates the kidnappings and disappearances, seeking to scoop an exclusive news story. In truth, she decided to embark on this mission for a personal agenda: to win a very influential prize, Taiyo High's First Prize Scoop. In Project Justice, she works with the Chairperson and students from Pacific High School to find the ones responsible for creating havoc between the schools.

Ran is the first fighting game character to use a camera as a weapon, so she gets a immediate unique points for sure. Frank West, you're officially a copycat. Ran did it first! Obviously, Ran is a quirky but unique character archetype for Rival Schools. Photography club ftw! Makes perfect sense. What a unique character.

Ran brings a hilariously entertaining (and almost cool?) fighting style to the series. She's got comical animations and some epic super moves. Visually, she isn't too exciting... but her look fits with her character. On a side note: Gotta wonder if she's related to Dan Hibiki at all... Ran and Dan Hibiki. And they're both clowns. Coincidence? I think not. Brother and sister confirmed!!!  ;)

Fun Fact: Her original Card Fighters Clash action card "Best Shot" is very very useful in the game... so you see it quite often if you play the game competitively. ^o^  (I have 3 of her cards in my deck.)
