Anarchist Monk Ranshin...I find it difficult to believe an anarchist would become a monk, or vice versa, though the latter is a bit more plausable.  We have a Level 4, Earth attributed Spellcaster, with 1800 attack and 100 defense.
 
When this card is sent from the Field to the Graveyard, in about any way (Battle, card effect, or by being destroyed) select one monster in the opponent's Graveyard and remove it form play.  This card isn't very good, it's absolutely awful.
 
Remvoing things from your opponent's Graveyard is usually a good thing.  The problem here isn't actually how bad this card is, it's just the fact about 50 other cards do what he's trying to under better circumstances.

Anarchist Monk Ranshin fights the man by removing cards in the grave from play. He's a sturdy attacker your opponent will cringe at if they have anything valuable in the grave. Ranshin is one of those cards that are good, but not good enough, as you'd rather play something with synergy. Having every card in your deck work with the others is critical in an age where every deck needs to be able to do everything.

And in most instances, you'd rather be using D.D. Crow, to snipe that card when the opponent tries to get it, while also intercepting Monster Reborn and Call of the Haunted, etc. That way, you trick your opponent into wasting their resources and relying on a plan that backfires. It's a really, REALLY mean thing to do to someone, but you're player 1 and he's player 2 and it's only fate that you two hate each other for a while.

2.5/5
Art: He's not very Mokey Mokey, maaan.
Fun Fact: The entire GX cast is on Mokey Mokey.
Tomorrow: A new drug craze called Mokey Mokey.

Today is Anarchist Monk Ranshin, which is a card you’ve never heard of because it’s a card that’s never run. When it is sent to the Graveyard from the field by an opponent’s card (this effect restriction seems to be popping up fairly often lately), you remove a monster from your opponent’s grave from play. So it’s like D.D. Crow if D.D. Crow was harder to use. His only plus is that he’s got good base attack, and that he’s a spellcaster, so you can run him in the spellcaster deck that keeps getting support but is never used. Honestly, D.D. Crow outmatches him.

Here we have another super rare from Starstrike Blast, and this one also has an effect that happens when hes sent from the field to the grave by your opponent. Anarchist Monk Ranshinis an EARTH Spellcaster with 1800 attack and 100 defense. The EARTH/Spellcaster is an awkward combination, but it works since most spellcaster support doesnt care about type. Anyway, his effect is some weird combination of Sangan and D.D Crow. Whenever hes sent from the field to the grave by your opponent, he removes one monster in your opponents grave from play.

This is....interesting to say the least. He's an 1800 beatstick that can float by battle and then when he bites the dust, he removes a monster from play.

Traditional- 1/5
Advanced- 3/5
Art- Looks like a zombie actually.
