Time for a ranma manga dump, starting with chapter 1 in color!
My next door neighbor had the color issues, I was really jealous. I only started collecting it as of like halfway through the first volume.
Can you show me where to get some color scans, I want them too
Sex with Ranma!
I also wish sex with ranma
Dunno. I meant he had the physical color issues when I was a kid. And I think I petered out buying the Ranma graphic novels around Vol16 or so. They were still like $17 a pop in the mid 90s, which was rather ludicrous.
Indeed. Ranma is best girl.
Ah yes, forgot the early stuff was flipped, even.
Also: My god typesetting looked horrible back then.
I think I have the first volume in color
AFAIK Viz only offered the first 3 issues in color. They used to split them into comic-book-sized portions and called them "Parts". So Each tankoubon volume was anywhere from like 7-10 "parts" large.
Of course I had no concept of how Japanese manga publishing worked back then, so I always wondered why the number of parts per volume always fluctuated.
Well, I do much like the color, especially black haired Ranma.
Also the amount of ink dripping from the pages. It's like Rumiko drew this with a sharpie.
Good old Soun
I want to buy the physical copies but it is like 250 for the whole thing
>that last panel
It's been 12 years, so I really ought to reread this.
I have new scans downloaded, just waiting for the day.
I had no idea there were color issues of Ranma. This is fucking fantastic.
I liked long haired Akane
Akane's so great
Why didn't timid, polite Ranma stay a thing? Damn it, Takahashi. You could have corned the moe market before it even existed!
Holy shit ranma is cute in the last panel of page 21
Worst girl makes her appearance!
Atleast she had nice hair back then
She is underrated in my opinion but no where near best girl
She was perfectly fine until this next page happened...
Always found funny that out of all the girls, Ranma had the biggest tits.
isn't shampoo bigger-titted?
She's pretty much Lum with black hair here
By a couple cm
I thought Ranma got progressively bigger as the series went on?
she's a growing woman, isn't she?
It would be great if ranma had ended as a permawoman
Pancake is still the best girl. Damn, Ranma has shit taste in women.
It kinda amazes me how few fanfics can do this concept decently
I like the SFX.
Woah, this thread takes me way back.
No problem bro
I remember watching this dubbed as a kid, but then ranma's dubbed voice changed so I dropped it.
Female Ranma had a really sexy voice in the dub
I am currently rewatching ranma 1/2. (well its more like watching, since I forgot most)
The bluray quality is great, and the series is really awesome.
And this fucking moment.
I think my heart stood a bit still as well.
dubbed or subbed?
man, wish I had a spring of drowned girl... or just a cursed spring, I'd do the drowning if necessary
the very first non h manga I've finished back in 1999 with a dial-up internet
T-there's a Ranma Blu-Ray?
look at the image filename.
What kind of SFX is >Bappita Bappita Bappita?
I remember I had a martial arts instructor that liked this comic a lot, though oddly he had it in his head that this was made a china even when I pointed out to him that it was a japanese comic and the author was japanese.
I suppose that is just the sound their hands make
>What kind of SFX is >Bappita Bappita Bappita?
>English Adaptation by GERARD JONES
>English Adaptation by GERARD JONES
>English Adaptation by GERARD JONES
Awesome ones, that's what.
It's all Ranma's fault
> How old is he? Younger men bore me.
> Oh, I HOPE he is older!
Back when Kasumi actually had a character.
fucking zhooop doors
fucking WRF shirts
shit, Isn't this the chapter where akane becomes even more worst girl?
dat angry Kasumi
Oh wow. Thank you OP. I didn't know that VIZ released some numbers with color pages, all the volumes I have are B/W.
It's so weird, I can't remember what I had for breakfast today, but I remember Ranma perfectly.
does tofu fight even once in the manga?
It would be great if Ranma went in hot water up to his waist and was a girl with a penis
a girl without hips is a girl not worth living for...
It would be great if every girl in the show had a massive futa cock. It would fit Nabiki's character so well.
Those raging hormones will get you into a world of trouble.
what with you knuckleheads and wanting to insert futa into every damn series even yuri ones?
I cant enjoy Ranma 1/2 simply for knowing the mangaka is a bitter, money-greedy old woman who probably despises the youth and its sexualy despite making money with it.
Ranma isn't yuri.
GRORIOUS NIPPON SHINAI
CUTS THROUGH ANYTHING
Akane, queen bitch of violence. She's not even tsundere, just pshycopathically violent.
I typically arn't a fan of tsundere characters but It works in this instance because the guy is also tsundere and not spineless.
She kinda grows as the series goes on. She's not nearly as violent towards the end. Kasumi does call her a violent maniac in one of these pages, anyway.
>fanfics can do this concept decently
I used to buy Ranma 1/2 as single comics back in the day because it was cheaper than buying 'the big book ones', not realising that I was getting severely ripped off that way.
Stupid kid. But I still have like 100+ of them in a drawer.
he implied they couldn't
I meant, I have never seen it done well.
I feel like there should be more Genma faces on 4chan.
How so? I read up to like volume 20 and she was still punch first, ask questions later.
Don't get me wrong, she's still violent, just not as uncaring about it. In the beginning, she doesn't really give a fuck about any guys except Dr. Tofu and her dad. As it goes on, that definitely changes, since she's even friends with people like Ryoga.
She's just terrible
ryoga is a pig
Ryoga is suffering
God I hate Nabiki. She is such a fucking bitch.
she's a self-insert. Spiteful and moneyhungry.
I like her more than Akane though.
I don't. Akane is annoying but I don't wish her dead like with Nabiki.
>At last. I...found...the... Ranma thread
These were only $5? Were they individual chapters or something? My volume copies were black and white and cost $16 each when I bought them.
Ranma is such a smug bastard.
Those legs. Those legs do terrible things to me.
Yeah, they were like one chapter each.
I want fuck ranma
Thanks for dumping.
Ranma was the first manga i read so this is a great nostalgia read.
He implied a few did.
Is Kuno ded?
>left to right manga
Oh, the nostalgia.
Will you provide a rar, OP?
If only the manga was about kuno making ranma into his waifu
There are fics like that I think
I've tried reading a fanfic once. it was completely incoherent
The manga kinda is about Kuno trying to make Ranma his waifu.
that's not the focus, and he fails
I AM SO MAD
MADDER THAN PEOPLE WHO CAN'T PLAY 10BIT
MADDER THAN DAIZ WHEN HE SEES YOU PLAYING .MP4S LOOKING WORSE THAN PIC RELATED
Some are quite shit I have read a few good ones, and some that take an interesting concept and just kinda get lazy and shit it up at the very end
There's still a fair amount of it happening over the series.
>where's your sword
Could make a potentially great doujin opening, wherein he points to his pants.
Ive seen a doujin where his dick was a sword
lel a zip then?
I'm at work and I can't read page per page right now.
>running to school
>not even late
Is Akane incapable of being cute?
Haven't seen one, but the one where Ryoga's penis is drawn like p-chan is pretty great.
I know that one, doesnt he rape ranma a whole bunch
Your boss will understand. Just tell him you have a heart condition and the only medicine is to look at cute girls.
zip, 7z, gz are fine. There's others of course I just never encounter them (even gz is pretty rare, although I saw one today on /a/)
tar.gz is only rare outside of the *nix community.
He sure does.
Those were the mou il desu ones I think, they were pretty cool
that's like... 50 doujins
>FAPPI TA FAP
I'm gonna use this one.
Is this the official thread for old people on /a/?
you people know what it is?
What'd ya say ya wipper snapper?
Nah, I was asking 'cause I ain't a kid myself. Thanks, OP, and please go on.
Almost done with this volume, will probably start again in a few hours unfortunately it will all be in black and white after this volume
Kuno please wait until you're at home.
>Almost done with this volume, will probably start again in a few hours unfortunately it will all be in black and white after this volume
That's fine by me. It's still mirrored, though, right?
Thank ya OP.
I believe so, I find the mirroring kinda charming
>I believe so, I find the mirroring kinda charming
I have to agree with you there, at least for Ranma.
Well that's it for now
As I said I have more in a few hours so keep an eye out.
>Time for a ranma manga dump, starting with chapter 1 in color!
I have the first 3 monthly issues in color. I outbid a few comic book dealers on eBay to get the first 2, the 3rd I found in a comic book store.
Good to see someone else also considered scanning these.
For those who thought "issues?" yes, before Tokyopop revolutionized the way manga got published and sold in the US (and perhaps Canada), publishers like Viz used to divide the story up into 32-pages or more comic book sized "issues" and printed 2 chapters Per Month. Not only was this slow as shit, but expensive, too.
I have 13 boxes of comic book sized manga issues, including the 100+ issue run of Oh My Goddess! from the first issue until they changed to graphic novels.
It still annoys me that tankoubon in Japan are 300 at best and we pay on average $10, but our books are bigger and the paper is better than newsprint.
You could at least color correct the scans and remove the yellowing the paper has suffered over the years. I have my 3 color issues in heavy plastic professional grade collector sleeves.
>My god typesetting looked horrible back then.
That's because it was LETTERING and done by HAND. It's not called "typesetting." I wish people would stop calling it that.
In fact, people still letter English translated manga by hand, even digitally.
Oh God, I remember that. It was tedious has hell.
I'm just glad it was scanned. And it looks better than most of the Ranma scans I've seen before.
Second one is unmodified.
Damn beat me to it.
Yes. I meant that you cropped the right panels.
I am a big fan of ryoga/ranma
Also praise Satan!
It's not fair that there will never be any more ranma
I still remember the feeling I had when I finished all of the Ranma series, after gradually reading it for a large part of adolescence. I felt empty for a while, like a bunch of people I knew and laughed with for years all died at once. I'm glad OP made the thread, because I had never seen the color pages before and that was a pretty nice nostalgic feeling.
Im glad you liked it bro, I plan to do the whole series. So stick around!
VIS is re-releasing coloured volumes every month in 2014 supposedly.
Oh god that is fucking awesome
I find this art style appealing
I just hope they don't censor the nudity.
Source? I just Googled and it seems they are reprinting it, but I didn't see anything about it being in color. If it's in color, I'm definitely buying all of them.
I'd be pretty shocked if they did, considering how tame the nudity is, and the fact that it has already been released uncensored. Plus, there is far more lewd stuff being released uncensored these days, like Monster Musume.
Pretty sure this series is to blame for a good part of my sexual and gender confusion
download link pls!
