Dear GOD . . . do whatever you need to, in order to get this

  • Nov 25, 2001
If you like anime at all, you MUST see this series. This was the second series I ever saw in the anime world, and it was THIS wonderful series that hooked me into the group of people known as anime fans, or Otaku by some.

The story of Ranma is truly a unique one, and if you have read the editor's reviews and been on the web at all you should have a pretty good idea of what this series is about. If you have never seen it before, do whatever you need to do in order to do so, trust me, you will be happy you did!

About this movie


The 18 episodes that comprise the first broadcast season ofRanmaoffer an appropriately zany introduction to the popular transgender martial arts comedy. These episodes form a single extended narrative, unlike the OVA installments, which can be watched in any order. The pacing is a little slower, the violent martial arts encounters are more clearly staged, and there's more nudity, but the mixture of slapstick humor and reluctant sentiment remains the same. When the Saotomes join the dojo-home of the Tendo family, fathers Genma and Suon decide son Ranma and daughter Akane are engaged, despite the participants' objections. Ranma and Genma have to explain why they turn into a girl and a panda when hit with cold water--the result of a disastrous visit to the cursed springs of Jusenkyo. Before they can establish any semblance of domestic tranquility, the geographically challenged Ryoga arrives to continue a quarrel with Ranma that dates back to junior high school. It's taken him this long to find Furinkan High. Kuno, the school kendo champion and windbag, discovers he's as smitten with Ranma's female form as he is with Akane, while his loudmouth sister Kodachi falls for Ranma as a male. Shampoo the Chinese Amazon is equally dedicated to killing girl-type Ranma and marrying boy-type Ranma. When the overwrought Suon Tendo tells Genma, "With you and your son in the house, there's never a dull moment," he makes a rare understatement. Not rated; suitable for ages 12 and up: Slapstick ...
