Elf Princess Rane was very amusing. The dub from Anime Works is great, and in my opinion funnier than the subtitles, particularly
the song in the middle of episode 2.
The character designs are nice, looking a bit like Jungle De Ikou. Go reminded me a bit of Carrot from Sorcerer Hunters. I didn't have any trouble following the storyline, having experienced Furi Kuri firsthand. Again, the English dialogue is delightful, and I'm not sure, but I think some of the Oh My Goddess voice cast is used. A very well done job by the english cast, at any rate.
I was thrown a bit by the fact that there's only 2 episodes available, despite a "next episode" preview at the end of the second. I would definately like to see more of Rane, a solid little anime that rates a buy overall for being funny, well written, and having nice character designs.

I'd had my expectations raised by hearing what a great, zany comedy this was, and I was a bit disappointed by how incoherent it turned out to be. I suppose this one is probably funnier if you understand Japanese. There are a few good moments, though. (Hint: read the subtitles very carefully!)

Beware of this Anime!
With only two episodes, this short OVA series can be considered an extreme comedy. Don't be surprised when you watch it again and again, probably just to figure out on what's happening. ^^;
But be aware, this series is super fast paced, so you can seriously loose what's going on in the storyline. People with heart problems and pregnant women should be careful when watching this insane anime.
