Ranze Furoku 1982 - 1985

Ranze furoku 1986 - 1988  >>

The Ranze arc of Tokimeki was enormously popular with readers, and one way (of many) we can tell this is by the sheer volume of furoku produced for the series. Ranze was often featured on the "big" furoku of the month, such as a notebook, letter set, or paper bag, and there wasn't a single month from September 1982 through September 1987 that Ribon didn't come with at least one piece of Tokimeki furoku. I haven't done the exact calculations, but if we include furoku produced for Ribon's sister magazine, Ribon Original, the number of Ranze arc furoku is definitely well over a hundred!

After spending a few years collecting Ranze arc furoku from various online shops and Japanese auction sites, I was contacted by an incredibly generous Japanese Tokimeki collector who offered to pass down a ton of furoku to me for an amazingly reasonable price. This is how my collection now encompasses about 75% of all Ranze furoku ever produced. Thank you so much!
