Ginpatsuki, reporting for duty. Today's preview is of lovely goth lolita Ranko Kanzaki of Cinderella Girls fame

BEACH QUEENS - THE IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls: Ranko Kanzaki 1/10 Complete Figure [WAVE]

Ranko's words are, more often than not, too cryptic for even her to understand. Some Ps call her "unique," but my diagnosis is a terminal affliction of chuunibyou!

This look comes from the Swimsuit Collection gatcha card titled "Seaside Angel Ranko Kanzaki" released back in July 2012. Now there's being oddly eccentric, and then there's wearing nylons and lace gloves to the beach. Somehow Ranko manages gets away with both.

In figure form Ranko looks as comfortable as a fish in water, but the original illustration has her drenched in sweat and swimming in empty water bottles.

Idols sure know how to pose for the camera! Here Ranko is employing the oldest "bust up" technique in the book to make the most out of her beach balls. Thing is, she doesn't even need to--at 14 years old they are already over-inflated!

Paired with these amazing hips Ranko's body forms an ideal S Rare curve.

I don't care if it is an S Rare card design, this Ranko is too OP! Hips and butt crack aside, the soles of her feet wrapped in silky nylon are simply to die for.

It's only when you pair Ranko with palm trees that something seems amiss with her swimsuit. On any other character this may be offputting. With Ranko that mismatch is half the fun!
