OMG! Where are my manners? I love this piece of art you made of Ranmaru. It is fantastic, and captures his feminine beauty to a T. Thanks for sharing it here with us!

I love that game, and being Transgender I can totally understand his character! In real life (in history) Ranmaru Mori really was described as being beautiful and people to this day in Japan use the name Ranmaru Mori to refer to a beautiful Bishounen (Pretty Boy or Beautiful Man) of any knd. He is even sometimes called the Japanese Adonis! I know some Bishounen guys who are Transgender and live most of the time as women, so this is where the notion of portraying Ranmaru Mori in this way comes from. Another fun fact from actual history: Ranmaru Mori was the lover of Oda Nobunaga, and the two of them were inseparable until Nobunaga's death. Interesting, eh? Apparently, Oda's love for Ranmaru started a trend amongst Samurai for taking male lovers who had a feminine beauty to them, and that is what began appreciation for the Bishounen to begin with. On a game-related note, I loved playing as him in the game! The Oda clan always kicks butt in that series.

Quite possibly my favorite character in the game. Definately the easiest to survive with. I love his sword.

I totally agree! I love Ranmaru when he is at his most girly. That is really part of his appeal, his unique kind of beauty.

Its odd; if you've played SW2 you'll notice that Ranmaru's defeated event is the same as all the other female characters in terms of movement. I think that Ranmaru is either a Lesbian or a Pussy boy. Sorry if that offends you but I just don't like the character. The pic is awesome though!

That is correct. Also, Ranmaru Mori always had a reputation of being almost femininely beautiful so his looks very much account for this. As to his clothing the Samurai attire was not gender specific and could be worn by either sex.

Hey, everyone has their own special way about them! Don't be too hard on yourself. Always think in your mind: "I AM pretty!" and no matter what other people might think, you will feel fabulous. Advice I myself have always taken.

Be well! :)

Me too, Kumo-sama. He is my favorite member of the Oda clan, other than the great Lord Oda Nobunaga himself of course. Lady Noh is cool too though... but Ranmaru is the best.

There was a time I played Samurai Warriors so much my eyes got completely bloodshot @_@

Anyway, I love Ranmaruuuu.. this is a lovely image of him. You've depicted his stern discipline extremely well. I always thought he was too uptight for such a pretty boy. You also captured the detail of his costume and sword nicely.
