On July 31, 2014, We've Inc. created an official twitter account for Rana and revealed her existence to the public through her official websites.
On August 12, her first demo was released and was produced by monaca@10日P (monaca:factory).
In September, it was explained that in order to get a non-expiring Rana copy, you must collect all 30 tickets from each issue of the magazine. The tickets would not be accepted if the person mailing them in does not live in Japan. This made obtaining the full version of Rana difficult, but not impossible for an overseas user as one only needed an Japanese address to get the copy. The company explained that this was because they could not conduct their business overseas, but hoped that Rana would debut outside of Japan in the future and still appreciated the support from overseas fans.

However, WEVE, Inc could not accept tickets from overseas.
