Ran Kotobuki is the self-proclaimed world's greatest gal. She lives to shop, eat, and have as much fun as possible, because Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. In the midst of all of her goofing off, she protects Shibuya from all manner of undesirable people. Purse snatchers, pushy guys and invading gals from elsewhere don't stand a chance in Ran's territory. Because of this, she's widely respected by the denizens of Shibuya. And although she may look (and even act) a bit shallow, she's got a big heart and a sense of justice that could put her Police Chief father to shame. But she's not interested in that line of work, much to her family's dismay. All she wants is to hang out with her best friends Miyu and Aya, and continue being the world's greatest gal forever.

Not Half Bad
6 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oaky, weird title I know. Don't look at me. Okay so I've watched about three episodes of this from On-Demand, and I've warmed up to it. It's witty, it's funny, at the same time it has a hint of drama to it. It's almost like a Shoujo "Case Closed." What this show is about you may ask, more or less random things. It follows the day in the life of Ran Koribuki, an all Japanese Teenage Girl. She likes to shop, hang out, and other things. Both her parents and her brother are police officers, however she doesn't have any interest in becoming a "blue suit" Ran also has a huge amount of self-respect, which is not something you see in most teenage revolved shows. Ran has two friends Miyu and Aya.

Aya we are introduced to in the first episode, who turns out to be a subsidized dater. (Prostitute more or less) Ran helps her out such a situation, and sure enough they become friends. Aya is cool because she's brainy, but she also just wants to have fun, and is falling in love with Otahto.

Miyu is an ex-gang baby, who is hopelessly in love with Ran's brother. (Who helped her get her life strait And they are boyfriend and girlfriend) Miyu is kind of strange, b/c she always addresses her self in the third person. But she's sweet and likable.

But all besides that, they also hang around with two celebs. (One voiced by Greg Ayers) So this show is pretty good. Worth watching but I'm not so sure I would buy it. I've really just seen this all from "ON-Demand" and I think it's rather good. It really is almost like a shoujo "Case Closed" b/c Ran solves a lot of mysteries. And I like the fact it isn't riddled with vanity. Check it out.

This show has some rather nice art and Animation to it, so you can enjoy that.

Again regarding characters, Ran is one I actually like. Because she is not this bratty teen, who is so self-absorbed it's revolting. She cares about people, such as Aya, and her home town. Now if that isn't a good character, I don't know what is. I can't stand characters who are wrapped in their own vanity.

This is a little more monderney type of Shoujo, so not much in the ways of a huge original score, but decent music.

So I'd recommend it to you, watch it, it's really not bad at all. It's got comedy, with a very nice blend of drama. And not superficial drama either. Real drama, real problmes.
