Tokimeki Tonight Library

Ranze Furoku

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 probably close to a hundred. So you might think the 30 or so Ranze furoku I own is a lot, but it's merely the tip of the iceberg!
