I'm rewatching Ranma 1/2.
it was great during the first 3 seasons. Then it started to become irregular, mostly in the episodes that were created for the anime and werent in the manga
I remember pretty much that I got out of "anime phase" when I got to 7th grade because it's considered not fashionable (in my part of the world at that time) to be in pokemon's and dragon balls (and sailor moon was for girls only)
Then during my senior (high school) year I discovered Ranma on youtube when youtube was just brand new back in 2006. I don't exactly recall in detail how I discovered ranma... but I was looking for some other anime I may have missed out during my middle school years.
Because of Ranma... i'm now otaku ;_;
Ranma may be considered entry level these days... but man that was some EDGY (ecchi rather) stuff compared to... what? DBZ and pokemon?!
God those filler episodes were awful. I mean manga had some pretty weird chapters, but the anime took it to another level.
I heard somewhere that Ranma at one time was cancelled due to low ratings. Any truth in this?
I remember it turning into fanfiction level writing at the end.
I think the thing I didn't like most about the anime-only episodes is that they didn't have a lot of fighting.
The manga would remind you ever now and then that there's fighting to be done.
Also, to this very day, I have no idea how the hell the Hiryu Shoten Ha is supposed to work
shit nigga you be old as fuck no disrespect
They got low ratings because of the shitty writing and the really, really bad quality work. They thought that they could make the sales keep at the same rate as before while they undercut everything.
Not to mention the fillers or how they avoided some chapters for no good reason. The Koi Rod of Love, for example.
shit man this franchise was made for fanfiction since author doesn't know how to end it
Shampoo best girl
Currents of air, or in this case, chi. It makes absolutely no reason if you think physics, just take it as Rumiko's (shitty) dogma.
The Koi Rod of Love
You're supposed to keep your cool ki while your opponent's burning ki mixes and creates a tornado like effect whilst the two of you are spinning around. Something like that.
It went down after like episode 20 and got really stale for me around episode 50 or so. I loved Ranma as a character and found his antics hilarious but they kept reusing the same jokes over and over. Also Happosai was unfunny and ruined almost every episode he was in.
I think only Maison Ikkoku had an actual ending. Rumiko can't write an ending to save her life.
>Uchi no Tendou Doujou, isourou~
I personally thought that there were some anime only characters that were wroth coming back to even though their episodes were complete shit.
Pic related were pretty good for anime only characters
Needs more porn.
what are you? 12?
seriously though, some /a/nons even claim they're 50+ and surf here (the giveaway is when they say they watched Speed Racer and Star Blazers on local/syndicateTV)
Some of the best written fanfiction has come out of the Ranma 1/2 manga/anime
Volume 23, Chapter 242
It basically stokes the flames of the whole Ranma x Ryouga shipping like gasoline.
Yeah I got into Ranma in 1997. I don't think it's as unheard of as the other anon makes it out to be.
Because Ranma I addicted to Gender-Bender plot ;_;
Mainly because of TASS, and its newsgroup that had actual constructive criticism. Some people wrote quite memorable pieces under such observations.
Ranma makes for a really fucking scary yandere.
I seriously wanted Ryoga to end up with this chick.
She was way better then fucking Akari and she was more realistic for him then Akane or the fan favored Ukyo.
I don't quite remember how I found out about this show, but I think my penis led me to it. The show ended up being pretty entertaining with decent slapstick humor and some cool fighting.
>had actual constructive criticism
This is whats fucking wrong with fanfiction.net
Anyone can write shit on paper and people will always love it somehow. That and most of the good ones never get fucking finished.
That one chick from the episode where Ryouga was some sort of cowboy? Sometimes I wonder if the guy doesn't go all over the place breaking hearts like nobody's business.
for me it's only "heard" when I see it on TV.
cardcaptors (pretty cute MC they had)
i didn't have that much friends who were into anime/manga... so I never heard about ranma until near end of high school in 2005 or 2006 when Youtube (beta version) came.online
>That and most of the good ones never get fucking finished.
>Search for a few days on FF.net for good Ranma fics
>Find diamond in the ruff after looking through gutter trash
>Realize that it hasn't been updated in five years.
They are probably remnants from the TASS days, anon. You are watching the old decaying ruins of a golden age.
Go read RIchard Lawson. His stuff was amazing.
who could ever forget this great opener
and a great closer
>That one chick from the episode where Ryouga was some sort of cowboy?
Yeah, Akari was such a plot convenient love interest and she literally had zero flaws. He love for pig's can't even be considered a flaw either; more like a personality quark.
Anna on the other hand had to develop a relationship with Ryoga over the course of a moth before she started liking him.
Also Anna was actually created before Akari and people think that Takahashi actually copped ideas off of her to make Akari.
>goes to pantsu.net
I had such a hard on for the animu version of this guy.
Male Ranma is the biggest jerk I've ever seen. I hated him.
Pretty sure it's fanfiction.net
forgot my pic
His female and male half act exactly alike.
The series needs more Fem Ranma x other Girls. Ryoga pls go away
It's easier to forgive female Ranma because boobs.
I think it needs more Ranma x Ranko
At this point I'll accept any pairing as long its not Ranma x Ryoga
Unless you're talking about mirror ranma or that ghost ranma from anime.
>Hating Ranma x Ryoga
Whats wrong with them? They could be perfect for each other.
He's probably a general fag hater.
Theres too much of Ranma x Ryoga and too little of anything else.
>Theres too much of Ranma x Ryoga
I think you're mistaking Ryoga for Akane. I'm fucking sick of seeing them everywhere. Ranma drawfags have no concept of OTP varieties.
I loved that episode and the mirror Ranma chapter too.
I want to see a fanfiction based on this picture.
This show was the first anime I ever watched, my neighbor's older sister had a bunch of VHS tapes of it. We'd watch it and I'd start to feel funny when the girls got naked. I asked my neighbor if she looked like the girls in the show and one thing lead to another, soon we're fooling around and touching each other. She's actually al model now...
