Ranma 1/2... still has it goin on!

"I have to label myself as a Ranma fan. I have seasons 1-7, the OAV set, all three movies, and the entire manga series (in Italian thought, as far as I know vol. 38 hasn't come out in English!?). So I know a bit much about Ranma 1/2. this was probably one of the best seasons. The animation is top notch, much better than the fourth season, and even the dubbing is better. One of my favorite eps is definetely the mushroom temple, because it is hilarious to hear Ranma and Akane (who usually address each other as "uncute tomboy" and "stupid pervert") call each other "honey" and "darling". Another one of my favorites is when Ranma, to avenge akane's defeat, challenges a cheerleader to win KUNO'S love (!!). In this series, Ranma and Akane seem to be getting along better, (LESS fighting and less insults). One thing though- the ending to this series was definetely NOT SATISFACTORY. It ends with Ranma meeting his mother, who wants him to be MANLY or else... but it ends with Ranma and akane running to school like an ordinary day, and they say, Bye-bye! I was left with my mouth hanginig open in disgust. Read the manga for a REAL ending!A must see for all Ranma fans!!!! Ranma+Akane, together forever!"
Still a great series, but what's up with the interviews?!

"Well, obviously if you've been collecting the entire Ranma 1/2 anime series up till now you'll no doubt buy this one. This is the last of the anime to be translated into English. (In chronological order, however, the movies come after this, then the O.A.V. series.) Anyway, the show itself maintains it's greatness, however there's one MAJOR problem, that being with the extras. They have interviews with the American voice actors, but it's in the same room where they're having the going-away party, and the backround noise is so loud it's harder than hell to hear a single word the actors are saying! Jeez, I mean, what's so hard about taking them aside into a seperate room so that the interviews can be conducted in quiet?! The whole reason I bought the Ranma Forever box set was for the voice actor interviews, and now I can barely hear what's being said! So I felt a tad bit jipped. It's because of this disapointing extra that I knock the overall rating down a star, although you do get to see what the actors (those that appear in the live-action extras, anyway,) look like. Well, anyway, that's all."
Funny, touching, but without closure

"I did my research. They intended to make the true ending of Ranma 1/2 for OAVs, but Kitty, the company responsible for distributing Ranma 1/2, went out of business BEFORE they could make the last episode. This left me with a seriously unsettled feeling having followed the series since 1991 and not having any closure. This series is defintely full of laughs and touching moments for Ranma and Akane, but at the end of the last episode, you may find yourself looking for the manga. The questions left: Will Ranma ever become normal again? Will Akane and Ranma ever be together? This DVD boxset will NOT answer said questions."

"So after all the crazy antics. All the gender/speices tranformations, the crazy martial arts tournaments and everything else under the sun it all comes down to the seventh and final season of Ranma 1/2.
This season does the series justice by giving its fans a season to remember and most importantly closure. The seventh season combines all the highs (no lows here!) of the past six seasons. The show throws in one more crazy race one more contest for a feast and all the famed side characters we have met along the way. From Picolei, to the Frog Hermit. Dr. Tofu to Colonge, the gang is all here! There is also an end to Ranma's three crazy ladies and his three arch nemesis. Still what makes this season so fantastic is the series two part finale where Ranma's mother finally arrives with a secret that dives deep into Ranma's past. You will learn the whole story that brought Ranma and his father to where they are today and the other shocker that shows us why Ranma can't go back home.
Still, why would you want a show to do that. We must never dwell on the past we must only look forward and eventhough the final episode never gives us a true window towards Ranma's future you can see in his eyes that he truly has gain alot from the past 7 years. A sharp mind, and pure soul and yes true love for Akane.
(Thanks for reading!)
