PostSubject: Ranma 1/2   16th May 2012, 11:06 am

Anyone a huge fan of the Ranma 1/2 series?

Out of Rumiko Takahashi's works Ranma 1/2 is my favorite. I love the characters and the huge love triangles through out the story.

Sadly I haven't finish the anime or the manga. Back when I was teenager I started reading the manga because of a friend. I bought up to volume 6 and every time I would go into the store vol 7 wouldn't be there. I really wish they would make an omibus of the series because I would buy it in a heart beat. So I guess I'll just have read scanlations to finish the manga series.

As for the anime I actually watched that before I read the manga. The same friend rented the season one from her library. I loved it dearly and I'm fond of both the English dub and the Japanese version. Sadly I didn't get far because when I got to season 4 Ranma's male's voice changed. The dubbing company got InuYashsa's English voice actor. >.< Every time I would try to watch an episode I would think of InuYasha. I really like male Ranma's old English voice.

I have already seen the OVAs and the two movies which were actually
pretty good. Usually anime movies suck and feel like an extra long
episode. I think in the OVAs and the movies they used male Ranma's old English voice actor? Correct me if I'm wrong.

My goal this summer is to finish both the anime and the manga. I really want to see the outcome of the story and for once I'm not going to look up spoilers.

I have loved Ranma 1/2 since I was younger. It was one of the pivotal works that got me into Japanese anime/manga (other pivotal works for me include DBZ, Sailor Moon, and Gundam Wing). I have nearly all of the manga. I am missing about three or four of the later volumes, but I have a hard time finding them at Half Price Books. I used to collect the VHS tapes from a local anime store, so I have a large collection of the anime, too. I wish I hadn't stopped buying the manga when it was coming in the U.S. I think I started buying Ranma 1/2 as soon as it came out in the U.S. I still have the older versions that are as large as books, rather than the tiny versions of manga so predominant now. I think they switched to the new format around the 15-20 volume of Ranma 1/2.

I am a huge Ranma 1/2 fan-fiction addict, especially because there are some simply amazing serial fan-fiction works of Ranma 1/2. If you want any recommendations, I like to think I have read the majority of the earlier Ranma 1/2 fan fiction (back when the series was still popular/being released in the U.S.).

You know, it's funny. I never liked watching InuYasha, because InuYasha had Ranma's English voice actor. ^.^ Lol. I ended up watching the later seasons of Ranma 1/2 before I watched the earlier seasons of the anime. I also adore Rumiko Takahashi's earlier works, like the Mermaid Saga and Urusei Yatsura. I really, really wish that the Mermaid Saga had been longer.

You'll have to let me know when you finish the series. I won't even express my opinion on it, because I don't want to give it away. What is your favorite pairing in Ranma 1/2? I'm not sure if I have one, because the characters have very few healthy relationships with each other. My favorite character, however, is likely Shampoo and I totally had a crush on Ryouga in middle school.

I saw InuYasha before Ranma and I never finish that series either. I lost interest in it because of the ban of 7. I will mostly likely never finish it. As for Takahashi's works I have only seen/watch InuYasha, Ranma, and Masion Ikkoku (only read vol 1 of the manga). Out of the three I like Ranma the best. I love how a lot of the characters look alike. o.o


Anyway I actually have vol 1 both in manga book size and today's manga small size. My sister in law gave me the book size one.

My favorite pairing is actually Ranma and Akane. I love their interactions with each other and I think Takahashi did a great job writitng them. However I don't mind the other Ranma ships with the three other girls that are after him. I find them funny, but I prefer Ranma and Akane. I also don't mind Ryouga and Akane, but I have feeling it's going to remain one sided.

I think my favorite male character is Kuno because he's just so funny. He thinks he's the greatest thing since slice bread! Also I love how he loves both female Ranma and Akane.

My favorite female character is Shampoo. She's so cute and I love her English voice.

I just love how series has a very diverse group of characters. I don't hate any of them.

I love ranma 1/2 but I did not know that the voice actor is the same as inuyasha.....now it`s stuck in my head XD

My favriot character is female Ranma, Akane and happsai.But I hated the school principal Evil or Very Mad he made too many crazy rules.

I mean cutting your hair was ridiculous.

I know! I feel so out the loop! I should have stuck up and kept on watching season 4. What's really funny in the Japanese version male Ranma is voiced by Japanese InuYasha and Akane is voice by Japanese Kagome.

Shampoo is awesome. XD

So I'm half way through season two and I have read up to 6 volumes of the manga. I'll have to finish the manga online and the place I found it on has it Japanese volumes which is 38. In America Viz had made into 36 volumes. Because of the difference I'll be starting at volume 8. lol

Oh god last night I had a dream about going to hot springs. It must because of the Ranma marathon.

Ooh, this was one of my first manga! I enjoyed it thoroughly because of its utter insanity. XD However, the series just went on for far too long and I never finished it. I think I read twenty or thirty volumes? Maybe there are not even that many but that is what it felt like. Lol.

I wanted to start the anime and I watched episode one, which I loved but then I did not get around to watching the rest. I hope I still have the links cause I was really interested! I liked the Japanese voices a lot.

This may sound crazy but was there a live action as well? I think I remember seeing a poster of it somewhere but I cannot remember.

The English sub-titling isn't that great, but it is better than nothing, in my opinion. I haven't watched all of it, but so far I like what the creators did with it. I giggle at the comedy. And I hate to say it, but Kuno looks cute!

I have seasons 3 - 7 plus the OVA on DVD. Still need to get my hands on
season 1 and 2 (I have them on video though, as well as the two movies).
Also read some of the manga. Ranma was among the first set of animes I
ever watched as a kid and it's still one of my top favorites today. Has
anyone here seen the new OVA that was released in 2008?

It was made for the Weekly Shonen Sunday 50th Anniversary Celebration. Complete with new animation. You can find it on YouTube.

oh my god, this was like one of the first animes that I watched, like when I was 3 or 4 (ok, my parents watched and I sat in the room with a barbie doll and then watched when I was a little older)

I loved Shampoo so much. Such a fun series.

I ever watched some of the Ranma 1/2 episodes on the Animax channel, it was quite funny I must say and I like it slightly more than Inuyasha. Akane was my favorite because she can be rather funny, even though she sometimes irritates me.

I have a friend named Paul who is VERY into Ranma 1/2. He likes it and understands that I don't. I don't think I can get into it. I'm just not into those kinds of hijinks. Also, Happosai. No.

Viz has released it in omibus form. 2-1 instead of 3-1. I'm not sure if it's different from their second release. I heard that they kept the read right to left format in the omibus volumes.
