Ranma 1/2 - Outta Control - The Complete Fourth Season Boxed Set (2002)

1 rating: 3.0
Animation movie

The fourth broadcast season of this popular transgender comedy feels less inspired than the third (collected in theHard Battleset). Ranma's duel with a feline specter in "My Fiancé, the Cat" plays like a retread of "You ReallyDoHate Cats!" from … see full wiki

What on earth was Viz thinking?!

  • Dec 16, 2002
I *LOVE* the Ranma 1/2 series, it is the series that officially launched me into the rabid ranks of the otaku (otaku = "fan-boys" for all you non-animé-watching heathen out there).

The reason I am rating this set with 4 stars instead of my standard 5 for anything Ranma, isn't because of the quality of the animé. The reason is that Viz CHANGED the male Ranma voice actor for the English dub! I could *NOT* believe they did this. I have yet to be able to find out how and why this happened. If the original voice actor walked out for whatever reason, then I guess Viz can be excused. But if this was a case of egos or salaries interfering with a great product, then everyone at Viz should hang their heads in shame.

Over-all though, you can just switch to the subtitled mode anyway (which I have now discovered I prefer over dubbed anyway) and there is no change. The stories are great, and the animation, music and most especially the jokes are all great.

What did you think of this review?
