I think this is the only anime i ever dropped because it got too boring.
There's no connection between all those episodes, no buildup, no nothing. Every chapter they're hoping to get normal again but you always know that it'll fail anyway. Repetive as fuck.

>>117266676

The manga was actually pretty good; excepting possibly the first season, the Anime seems to have been entirely filler. But yeah, it was pretty episodic overall; Rumiko Takahashi's works tend to suffer badly from the status quo being god, so the plot moved at a glacial pace at the best of times and nothing ever got resolved.

It's been VERY long since I last watched the manga but I started to read the manga and was wondering.
Did they ever show Ranma's mom or Ryoga's girlfriend in the anime?

Ranma's mom shows up in an OAV. Ryoga's gf never does.
>>
>>117270377
Ok, thanks.
>>
>>117270377
Actually Ranma's mom appears in the last season of the anime, like two episodes before it ended.
>>
>>117270454
Which is the second time we see her, because the OAV came out sometime around season 2 or 3.

There's a chapter in the manga where ranma falls in love with ryoga because of a fishing rod.

Only subjectively.

Not by US release. We saw that OAV long before Viz caught up with the series. Objectively, you're correct though.

>>117270747
Creepiest chapter in the entire run of the manga. It went too far in a few places.

>>117270780
Ukyo's got her issues, mostly stemming from Genma making bullshit promises for food (again), but compared to Shampoo she's the paragon of sanity.
>>
>>117270377
That's because the anime never advanced to the point where Akari shows up. Not that it really matters anyway, she was pretty bland as a character.

There were several arcs that got skipped over or never got animated because the anime ended years before the manga did. I'm comfortable in the knowledge that Akari is a figment of someone's imagination and never officially existed in the show.

Ok, I believe it is my duty to mention the elephant in the room.
SO, Could Ranma beat Yamcha?
>>
I fucking loved this show so much. I was at maximum comfy watching Ranma and drinking green tea on cold days...
>>
How did Rumiko Takahashi go from making things like Maison Ikokku and Ranma...to making shit like Inuyasha?
>>
>>117271034
Kinda wish they animated a few more arcs. Like Umisen Yamasen arc or the mirror Ranma arc.
>>
>>117271071
Ranma can beat anyone in martial arts through the power of the Anything Goes school.
If he doesn't succeed at first he just needs an arc to find a new technique and come back up on top.

Alternatively... Any Yamcha before Z? Yes. Post-Z Yamcha not so sure.

Two ways to look at it:
Yamcha at his introduction is basically a one-off Ranma character. His big deal early on was that he was capable and fast, and later on his deal was that he had excellent chi control... which ended up being a useless specialization because everyone could move too quick for him to deal with. Yamcha, after training with Roshi, would be end-game tier for Ranma. Large pool of chi, powerfully destructive techniques and superhuman physicality put him on equal footing with Ranma's toughest foes, even ignoring that Yamcha was a talented martial artist when he was introduced.

But Ranma is from a comedy series, where he is the lead. He basically has to win, ultimately, at the end of the story. He's also not afraid to run away if he's going to lose, and then come back after he's learned some sort of trick to beat his enemy, somehow. Plus early Yamcha had that girl-phobia, which Ranma would exploit to hell.

Late game Yamcha would basically require Ranma to spend an entire volume dealing with, and both Happosai and Cologne would need to teach him something to beat the guy.

Inuyasha was great. It just suffered more from her typical longer-than-it-needs-to-be syndrome because there was an actual story going on here.

They're a good match in a conceptual level. This was clear at the very beggining but even if it strayed off path it was mostly kept 'til the end.

Akane is delicate woman who struggles to be seen as one because her activities make her look tough and manly.
Ranma is tough and manly and struggles to be seen as STRONK while constantly turning into a slut (result from a sexy body and a boy's shamelesness).

And because it was delayed and the manga ended you can imagine it got cancelled.

Or not really, because they're really fated to be together. Everything else was just delaying the inevitable in extremely funny ways.

We can all agree that Akane is worst girl though.

Disagree completely. She was never what Ranma wanted out of a companion or a mate, and she would bore him because she was a) no challenge for his skills despite the Tendo school being Anything-Goes Martial Arts the same as the Saotome school, and b) Ranma couldn't fight her anyway because "muh code". She represents anathema to him, a combative opponent he couldn't actually combat even though he could have kicked her through a wall whenever he pleased, and he represents anathema to her because he won't see her as a worthy martial artist, won't fight her as an equal, and won't treat her the way she wants to be treated because (thanks to Genma) it's "beneath him". The frustration alone would split them up. They are an incompatible couple no therapist could ever puzzle-piece together. Plus, like you said, Ranma was playing that "slut and getting away with it" game that Akane herself could never play, and she resented him for that as well.
>>
>>117271899
Not to mention her retarded accusations, lack of trust dispute the multiple times he's saved her ass, and Ranma's inability to lash back because of family backlash.

And yet they still loved each other because Ranma could see the sweet girl behind the brute. It's more questionable that Akane would like him back, but she managed to get his nice side out time and time again, losing his machismo façade to be nice to her or honestly praise her.
They're a great couple.

I recall some artist recently out of japan that drew mostly older stuff like ranma and lum and the like. he was drawing some weird spinoff of it though, dunno if it was canon as I never read the manga.

but there was ranma, male ranma, and a younger female ranma... each with their own set of the same memories but different personalities.

That's a load of shit. What they had was Akane trying to prove herself his equal (she wasn't) and Ranma being a greedy and possessive manwhore who hated to lose. Nothing about their relationship could be called healthy, much less love. Inventing words to read between the lines is a far greater sin than "short-sightedness".

If you're talking about the Tunnel of Lost Love she only picked Ryoga because she wanted Ranma and Akane to walk through the tunnel and break up.

The author was writing a love comedy and they were the main characters. You don't have to read between the lines. You know a priori that they have romantic feelings for each other.

This in insulting. By comparison to everyone else Akane is NOT a martial artiest. Most of the time all you do is see her jogging in the mornings and breaking block. She's shit as a martial artiest.

>They're both violent assholes that are actually soft on the inside
Ranma is the least violent out of most of the cast. Everyone is always starting fights with him more then half of the time and that includes Akane.

Even the ham-fisted hack realized how ridiculous it was by the finale, and gave up because even for a love comedy it was too unbelievable to go through with it.

Shampoo is a better martial artist than Akane can ever hope to be.
And she's more violent and softer inside than anyone in ranma's half.

And Shampoo is better looking too.

>>117273343
He befriended Ryoga when they were little. Ranma's concept of friendship, of course, involves literally stepping on him to rob him of his lunch. Day after day for who knows how long.

As for Taro he didn't go out of his way to befriend him. He faced him as an opponent and when he found out his problem he pitied him... annnnd went back to beating him up when Taro showed that he didn't give a shit about his pity.

Never said that Ryoga doesn't have his good points but you can't deny that Ranma has wanted to be friends with him for forever but Ryoga is never interested.

She lucked into those things. She doesn't want to get insanely strong most of the time, only when Ranma teases her about it.

Ranma has a bizarre concept of friendship. I think they never really started out that way but eventually became that way through shared experiences. The rival-turned-bff trope was alive and well when this series came out.

Because Ranma is an asshole to Ryoga constantly.

In the anime, Taiga was closer to Akane and a much bigger cunt then her manga or LN counterparts.

Also Ryuji was a fucking puss bag in the anime.
>>
>>117273637
It's the same other way around. Most characters are assholes to most characters.

>>117273630
They did start out like "friends". Classmates who hung out together and kept fighting each other over the littlest things. Perfect rivals.

One good testimony of their friendship is that Ranma was honestly concerned about Shirokuro and knew the fastest way to Ryoga's house to go check on her.

... at the same time the same episode has Ryoga lying to Ranma just to get his help and then Ranma posing as Ryoga's sister and messing with his poor slow mind.

There were a bunch of times where Ranma tried to befriend him by trusting him in a team up to stop Happy and his bullshit.

It was ultimately Taro who always betrayed his trust
>>
>>117273751
Anon no BAKA.
>>
>>117273789
I did mention that it was Taro who didn't care for Ranma's pity. There's a difference between pity and friendship.
Also Ranma was also essentially trying to get Taro to stop attacking them since he IS a lot to handle.
>>
>>117273637
>Because Ranma is an asshole to Ryoga constantly.
But none of it was intentional, Ranma was just a retarded dense motherfucker who doesn't pay the fuck attention. If Ryoga would learn to forgive and just let Ranma try to make it up to him (like he tried to do in the beginning) they could actually be good friends.

It's Ryoga who doesn't want to make amends with Ranma. Ranma is perfectly willing to say sorry (like in the beginning with the bread)

Their issues stemmed primarily from lack of respect for each other. Ranma didn't figure Ryoga to be tenacious enough a competitor to give him pause, and Ryoga thought Ranma was a thieving coward who wouldn't even face him in a fair fight. That they were both totally wrong about each other was something that had to be worked through over time. By the time of the resolution of the Musk Dynasty arc, they're basically best pals and their asshole-ish behavior towards each other is almost banter instead of bashing. Ryoga gained a friend who didn't see him as being a pushover or just an annoyance anymore and who actually respected him as a fighter, and Ranma gained a friend who could give him a challenge worthy enough to bring out the best in himself and who wouldn't just go away if he happened to lose.

Just because someone can related to your situation doesn't mean it's all pity nor does it mean that that someone doesn't want to actually be your friend.

That's the mistake Taro kept making
>>
>>117273954
It wasn't just the bread, remember? It was Ranma that kicked Ryoga into the pool at Jusenkyo.
>>
>>117273961
Shampoo was better suited for Ranma than Akane.

Ryoga's girlfriend was better suited for Ryoga than Akane.

Nabiki was better suited for Kuno.

Ukyo was better suited for Mousse.

Akane was better suited for No one

The bread wasn't even the issue. And an apology ten years later isn't going to cut it, even if it was. And hell, he only tried that because the Tendos made him realize he was a dick.

Never forget who raised Ranma.

Only because she was literally created for him and has no personality outside of wanting Ryoga's dick and pigs.

Absolutely

Wait what? She would have been ok with Ryoga. Better then Akari anyway.

Yeah ok

Taro made no mistakes. Taro don't give no shits.

He's his own man and doesn't need friends. He just wants a cute girlfriend. If only he could introduce himself to one of the many cuties that want him.

I'm not sure I'd even want that this late in the game. A modernized Ranma 1/2 series would be poisoning what came before it.

They wouldn't be able to keep that up. They would fuck things up somehow.

Both use tools
both are not reciprocated their love for their interest
both are actually pretty nice people

This. Akane and Mousse have more interaction and have even teamed up a few time. There's also the solidarity of being the least liked characters in the series.

There's a significant difference between Shampoo crushing Mousse's feelings constantly right in his face and Ranma being extremely friendly with Ukyo and considering her as a cute fiancee.

>nice people
Mousse once almost cursed an entire host of innocent spectators to be ducks just because he was trying to do the same to Akane to make Ranma suffer. Mousse was one of the people that joyfully abused Ranma while he was weak.
Mousse is not nice people.

The manga was always amazing, but the anime got stale fast.
They kept out good chapters and it's the kind of stuff that's nice to read, but not spend 22 minutes on a single episode.

Ranma ½ and Harry Potter have the same problem where the officially ordained relationships have no chance in hell at actually working, despite better options for the MC being readily available.

I think the problem stems from trying to match everyone rather than finding the best partner for the protagonist.

>>117276856
Yes. More of those

Both series suffered from a priori "she is the girl because I say so" disease, which makes sense, since both girls' characters were boring little author inserts.

According to what? Your opinion? Considering you're completely misreading the very basic characterization the characters have, your expertise seems to be questionable at best.
