Ranma is always a boy. This may seem minor, but a major plot point of the manga is Ranma's struggle to no longer transform when he contacts water. He does not want to be in a girl's body, in other words, we can safely assume he has a male gender identity. Thus, it's really inaccurate and offensive to refer to him as a girl, just because his body has transformed as a result of the curse. His gender identity is male, at all points, hence, he is a boy.
However, I think he eventually becomes more accepting of the female body he possesses. I can't remember too exactly, but there is a really minor, slight possiblity that he actually always was a girl, but a oppressive society is forcing him into a maskuline gender role, and just when he gets the curse, he is finally able to free himself from the thought patterns society has instilled in him, and come to accept that he actually is a girl. Ranma might be a story about a trans girl's mental journey to discover her true gender identity, in spite of what society has tried to force upon her. I don't believe in this theory, but it may be worth considering.
Why can't Ranma be both?
>he is finally able to free himself from the thought patterns society has instilled in him
which somehow makes Ranma a girl...?
Plebs with shit taste.
Agreed. The hero the series deserved.
didn't he actually admit to liking it at the end?
You mean the OVA of Maken-Ki 2?
Coincidentally, that OVA is the only saving grace of the whole second season, and the only reason why I would be okay with a season 3.
Personally I think ranma dislikes it too much to not actually like being a girl
Why do you homos quit posting?
I wish there was an alternate-universe series where he just accepts being a CGDCT.
I personally don't understand why he hates it so much, it's got to be the luckiest Jusenkyo spring to fall in. Like, he could have fallen into the fucking Spring of Drowned Frog, or Drowned Snail.
What guy in their right mind would hate the fact they could turn into a full blown women with just cold water. You have the best of both worlds literally gifted to you, and he bitches about it every fucking chapter.
Circumstances make it a bit harder. His dad drilled in him that he needed to be a man among men, to the point of where if he doesn't act like one, he's under contract to commit suicide.
Even the support staff tends to be. Rinne S2 needs to hurry up and air.
Only four days now, anon.
Thank all gods. It's been a grueling hiatus.
Genma, by far. No one is a bigger shitbag than Sabato. Happosai isn't as big a shitbag as Sabato.
Can't wait to wait four days after it aired until funishit "simulcasts" it.
>That one guy who keeps on uploading super autistic Ranma comics on exhentai
I think he fucking posts them on Pixiv, too. It's embarrassing.
Rinne will probably be in poverty forever because his dad is a lazy leech that keeps stealing money from him.
Don't you mean Crunchyshit, anon?
Anyway, it's still better than fansub groups taking weeks to finish an episode and then dropping it anyway.
No funishit means no HS and I doubt that anyone faster is going to pick it up.
We'll probably have no other choice but to wait for them like with S1 unless you speak moon.
>Rinne will probably be in poverty forever because his dad is a lazy leech that keeps stealing money from him.
You say that like Genma isn't.
Then again, I guess he was smart enough to get Ranma to marry into a well off family.
The main reason Sabato one-ups Genma is that he's the president of the damashigami company that lures people into the Wheel of Reincarnation before they are actually dead.
He also owns an Xbox.
Genma at least cares for Ranma. Sabato bailed on Rokudou after stealing all the family money and has racked up so much debt using Rokudou's chop that Rokudou's basically forfeited his life because there's no way he could ever pay it off in his natural lifespan. Also, Sabato refuses to tell Rokudou the fate of his mother. He's very much a monster in every possible way someone could be and is utterly unrepentant.
Oh, and I need to mention that Sabato is a soul corrupter and President and CEO of Damashigami Company, who basically employs spirits to capture souls and prevent them from successfully reincarnating. He's Antichrist Superstar.
I had actually read Ranma long before I ever heard of Urusei Yatsura, but I prefer the latter.
I guess it's because the science fiction angle appeals to me more, given what other kinds of shows I watch.
Officially, Fetus disappears if he turns back to boy type anywhere within the 9 months needed to carry it to term.
When splashed with cold again, Female Ranma starts at the beginning of her cycle.
Mage is the best artist for this pair. Thick Ranma is great.
Is this fanart, or is there a ranma reference in Yokai Watch?
That's because nobody with any other pairings show up
Love some thick ranma
Top level doujins.
Someone saved the post I wrote!
I've been here too long
>Love Ranma growing up.
>Did not end up as some special snowflake mentally damaged "gender fluid" retard whining about using the girls room when I have a penis.
I'm good, but others weren't so lucky.
But no worries I have enough images to last 3 days,
Pretty sure it is him as a girl. Because the form changed. His boobs got bigger over time.
Sorry OP, Kodachi will always be best girl
>implying I wouldn't do this every single second of every day
this really happened...
Glorious. Be a large black man and that would be even funnier
Damn, ranma's body is drawn to be manly as fuck in that pic compared to anime male lead character these days. Too bad male anime characters are all lanky fags now.
>that forearm resting over female Ranma
>No Doujin of Ranma getting the dick and becoming a very feminine House wife.
