Playing Style / Abilities
She concentrates too much on defending rather than attacking. Thanks to Teru, she holds out longer rather than trying to fold.
National Tournament Arc
Ran first appears during a flashback of Teru's. While being invited to join the improvised team, she asks the girls if they are sure they want to pick her and that they'll probably regret doing so but joins anyway. During her match she remembers Teru's instructions and defeats her opponent. Her team ends up winning the match.
After Teru walk out, Reika says that they must be close. However the girls tell her that they aren't and that it was simple advice that allowed them to win. Sometime later in the cafeteria, Ran and the others seek out Teru and request something of her. They ask her to help coach the other girls because they can't be satisfied if they get chosen to represent the school that way.
Later, it is revealed all the girls have gotten stronger thanks to Teru but the original girls remain very strong.
