|This article is about a/an ranger in Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger.|
- "Explosive dash of courage! AbareYellow!"
- ―AbareYellow's roll call[src]
Ranru Itsuki (樹 らんる Itsuki Ranru) is AbareYellow (アバレイエロー Abare Ierō) of the Abarangers.
A sanguine technology mistress who owns a German BD-1 bicycle she nicknamed "Birdie." All she really wants is peace. She was formerly trained to be an idol, but Ranru hated it and left to work in the mechanical field. She is interested in anything mechanical, can create her own devices, and is a genius in mechanics. Ranru used to be afraid of nattō until she was forced to conquer it during a battle with a Trinoid. Ranru also carries a small camera with her and usually snaps photos of the enemy during mid-battle to come up with a strategy on how to defeat it. She sometimes has an itchy back and often wants others to scratch it for her. In the finale, Ranru goes to work at a racetrack. Her Burstosaur partner is Ptera.
Dekaranger vs. Abaranger
To be added
Years later, Ranru fought alongside not only her own team, but every single Sentai ranger in existence, against the Empire of Zangyack when it attacked the Earth in the Great Legend War. After fighting against hundreds of Gormin and their Zgormin commanders. Akarenger noticed the fleet moving towards them, he gathered all the Rangers together and gave them the order to sacrifice their powers to wipe out the first invasion's armada.
Farewell Space Pirates
After the defeat of Ackdos Gill, Captain Marvelous returned all the Ranger Keys to the former Sentai heroes. It is assumed Ranru and her teammates received their keys, allowing for them to get their powers back.
Super Hero Taisen
Ranru, alongside Ryouga and Yukito (AbareBlack and AbareKiller were absent), among the majority of the Super Sentai heroes, was caught up in the "Super Hero Taisen" incident which eventually resulted in the Super Sentai teams and Kamen Riders joining forces to defeat both Dai-Zangyack and Dai-Shocker. During the final battle, she is seen in the background fighting Rat Fangire.
Kyoryuger vs Go-Busters
Ranru joined with Yukito during the crisis of Space War God Borudosu and, after reuniting with Ryouga, fought alongside their fellow Kyoryu Super Sentai: Zyuranger and Kyoryuger, against the forces that Borudosu had assembled. Forming a "Ptera Assembly" with her fellows PteraRanger and Kyoryu Gold, AbareYellow fought through the horde of Barmia Soldiers, Zorima and Golem Soldiers. Following this, she joined with her teammates to defeat Neo-Geildon - the reincarnation of their original enemy - with the Dino Bomber, before combining their cannons with their fellow Kyoryu Super Sentai to form the Ultimate Howling Cannon which they used to defeat Neo-Grifforzer who sacrificed himself to allow Borudosu to assume his true form. Boarding the AbarenOh which transformed from a Bakuryuu Tyrannosaurus replica provided by the Abaranger Zyudenchi, the Abarangers fought alongside the Zyurangers' Daizyuzin and the Kyoryugers' Kyoryuzin against the behemoth and, once the Go-Busters provided their power to form Tategami Raiden Kyoryuzin, combined their power with the other Kyoryu Super Sentai to finally defeat Borudosu, after which they and the Zyurangers took their leave.
Chou Super Hero Taisen
In 2023, Takaki Utsumi won the Nobel Prize for Physics thanks in part to Ranru having inspired his confidence as a child twenty years earlier. Retaining only a photograph of her cycling off taken from the back, Takaki gave his thanks in spirit to the woman, whose name he remained unaware of.
Super Sentai Versus Series Theater
Ranru's appearances in the "Versus Series", Abaranger vs. Hurricaneger and Dekaranger vs. Abaranger, are featured in the Super Sentai Versus Series Theater, hosted by the heroes of Tensou Sentai Goseiger. Moune (Gosei Yellow) also dresses as Ranru in the Abaranger cosplay.
In the first episode of Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger, Nobuo Akagi compared himself to Ranru when he was recruited by Hiroyo Hakase. He noted that Ranru received her Dino Brace after stopping a mugging, just as Nobuo attempted to do, but his daydreaming of stopping the mugger interrupted him, resulting in the victim saving herself by throwing Nobuo's bike at the mugger.
In the world of Tsuribaka Nisshi, the Abarangers are adored by fisherman Densuke Hamasaki's son Koitaro, who takes him to an Abaranger stage show. Faced with a shortage of fish at Tokyo Bay which is believed to be the result of a monster, Densuke takes his fishing boat out in search of the monster and experiences a dream in which he, in his Fishing Fool Mask persona, teams up with the Abarangers to defeat the monster. Waking up, Densuke assures Koitaro that Fishing Fool Mask are the Abarangers are working to beat the monster. Sure enough, the fish return to Tokyo Bay soon after.
Video Game appearances
- Ranru Itsuki/AbareYellow: to be added
Super Sentai Battle Base
AbareYellow is among the vast pantheon of Rangers which are available in the mobile game Super Sentai Battle Base, with her Abare Mode being available as well.
- Abare Mode
The AbareYellow Ranger Key (アバレイエローレンジャーキー Abare Ierō Renjā Kī) is Ranru Itsuki's personal Ranger Key and what became of her powers after she along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.
This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers. The AbareYellow Ranger Key was mainly used by Luka Millfy (Gokai Yellow), who used it to fight as AbareYellow.
- Among several changes as she, Marvelous, Don, and Ahim fought against Zangyack while Joe was absent.
- When the original three Gokaigers became the Abarangers while fighting Action Commanders Satarakura Jr. and Sandaaru Jr..
- When the Gokaigers became the Abarangers while fighting Action Commander Daiyarl.
- As part of a bombardment of changes in the final battle with Emperor Ackdos Gill, Luka became AbareYellow alongside Ahim de Famille (PteraRanger) in a Pteranodon Gokai Change.
The Abaranger keys, along with all the Ranger Keys of the first 33 Super Sentai, were briefly taken by the Black Cross King and turned into Ranger puppets that were fought by the Gokaigers and the Goseigers. The Abaranger keys were defeated by Gokai Yellow.
After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. It is presumed that Ranru received her key and became AbareYellow once more.
Behind the scenes
As noted by Hoji Tomasu in Dekaranger vs. Abaranger, Ranru's last name is loosely derived from Juraki (ジュラ紀), which the Japanese term for the Jurassic period (the kanji for Itsuki can also be read as "Ju").
- The white diamonds on the shoulders, arms and legs of Ranru's Attack Bandit Resistance suit are outlined black, in contrast to AbaRed and AbareBlue's (likely because the diamonds would otherwise be too difficult to see against the yellow of her suit).
- Ranru is the first female yellow since Chisato Jougasaki of Megaranger. Outside the four exceptions, every Yellow since then has been female.
- Ranru is the only Abaranger that has not had an onscreen appearance since the next season's VS movie:
- Asuka was on the Veteran Sentai team in GoGo Sentai Boukenger vs. Super Sentai.
- Mikoto, Yukito, and even Emiri appear in cameos during Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.
- Ryouga and Yukito assist during Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger vs. Go-Busters: Dinosaur Great Battle! Farewell, Eternal Friends.
- She is the only Ranger in that movie whose actress didn't come back for the movie, as the other Zyuranger and Abaranger actors came back to at least voice their characters, as Aiko Ito had retired from acting in 2010.
