Ranma 1/2 - TV Series - Season 1 - Review

Ranma 1/2 The TV Series - Season 1

[ Back of the Box Text ]

The Complete First Season Of The Hit TV Anime Series

It's not easy being teenaged martial artist Ranma Saotome, but it's even worse when your martial-artist father Genma
takes you from home at an early age to go on a decade-long training mission. He doesn't speak a word of Chinese, and
yet he insists upon bringing you to the cursed training ground known as Jusenkyo, where falling into one of the many
springs there turns you into whoever - or whatever - drowned there last. And then, the two of you have this little accident.

From now on, a splash of cold water will turn your father into a giant panda, while you, well, you turn into a re-haired
(and problematically well-built) female version of yourself. Hoy water will reverse the effect, but only until the next time.
What's a half-guy, half-girl to do?

Rumiko Takahashi born October 10, 1957, is a Japanese mangaka.

Takahashi is one of the wealthiest women in Japan.
The manga she creates (and its anime adaptations) are very popular in the United States and Europe where they have
been released as both manga and anime in English translation. Her works are relatively famous worldwide, and many of
her series were some of the forerunners of early English language manga to be released in the 1990s.
Takahashi is also the best selling female comics artist in history; well over 100 million copies of her various works
have been sold. She has twice won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1981 for Urusei Yatsura and in 2002
for Inuyasha.

Review by tkoold123

Ranma the TV Series is a Great Collection to watch and Own, its a very Entertaining Series with Lots of Humor in many different ways, not always about Sexual humor, Ranma is a series about japanese & chinese Humor and life style, Filled with lots of Action and Entertainment the series is Very Long with about 170 Episodes, and it is not exactly serious, Every Episode Can Certainly be Extremely Entertaining to watch in Any order, though from Season to Season some Minor things progress and there is a well story in line, Most of the time each episode or group of 3-7 episodes begins and ends with itself with minor story addon's that stay.

This anime is a Mid 1980's Classic, Filled with Crazy Stories and Very Fun to watch and filled with many Varieties of Characters for every Fan of any Style of anime to Enjoy!

Rating: 8/10
