Relationships

Rantaro Kiyama

Rantaro is Ranjiro’s older brother. The reason Ranjiro became a Blader was because he was inspired by his brother. In addition to this, Rantaro gave his old Beyblade, Roktavor R2, to Ranjiro. The two brothers appeared to be very close, as shown in a flashback in the third episode of Turbo.

Aiger Akabane

Ranjiro initially head a grudge against Aiger for defeating the members of his team and set out to teach him a lesson. After tying 149 times in a battle, the two eventually came to respect one another. Since then, they have become great friends, with their friendship being similar to that of Valt and Rantaro's. In one instance, when Aiger's Z Achilles was briefly stolen by the Wild Bey Gang, Ranjiro scolded them for it before apologizing to Aiger and retuning his bey to him. Later on, when Aiger slowly started to become possessed by Achilles and developed a growing desire for conflict, Ranjiro took notice of this and offered to accompany him on his journey to the mysterious place known as Dead Gran.
