If you dont know the story of Ranam 1/2 its about a boy named…Ranma Saotome who went training with his father (Genma) in Jusenkyo, China. This training ground is cursed and has Springs of drowned SOMETHINGS, While training Genma falls into Spring of drowned Panda, so when splashed with cold water, Genma turns to a panda and splashed with hot water turns back to a man. And Ranma…well he fell in spring of drowned girl. So you gessed it, he turns into a girl.

1. The animation is horrible! The first season had better animation than this one. There are many scenes where it looks like they just painted some manga scenes and tilted the screen a little (when Ukyo hits Ranma in episode 1).

2. Most of the episodes were rushed stories and pretty much the only episodes that were Manga episodes were the ones in the first two DVDs

Buy this DVD if you want to collect Ranma merchandise, but I don’t suggest this to be your first box set (it was unfortunately mine). Buy the Random Rhaphsody set, its theme song is great (the name is Zettai part 2) and the made up episodes are funny.

You know the phrase? That’s where a series gets as good as it’s going to get, then starts to decline. There are a lot of really good takahashi-writen episodes here (and a few bad amateur-written ones) until they come to the anything goes obstacle race.Bad art, butchered story, poor quality control. It’s not the only bad story in this set, but for me it marks the beginning of a slow decline for the series.I still reccomend getting this. In spite of a few duds, there’s a lot to like here, and it’s still a good bargain for your anime dollar.

‘Hard Battle’ is actually a really good season of Ranma, but there are few things that make me a little irritated. The animators seemed to become rather lazy, since at some parts the art seemed rather slopped, and it’s obvious there wasn’t much effort into it. Couple times I can recall this are in episodes 16 and 23. One thing I didn’t like (and I’m not sure what some of you others would think,) were the episodes that seemed completely random. No one ‘plot/idea’ seemed to carry on from one episode to another very much like in the first and second season (Shampoo’s entrance and the Japanese Nan’nichuan.) I happen to just be someone who likes one idea to carry on for a bit.
It’s because of those little errors I knock the series down to four stars instead of five. On the positive side, Ranma 1/2 is still an excellent anime. Full of laughs (a lot more for some people,) the continuing mind-blowing music that sets in near perfection with the settings, and of course…some new characters.
All in all, this is a good series, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Ranma 1/2.

Fun set of disks. Keeps the flavor of the manga while adding new material. Especially fun if you are familiar with Japanese culture and customs. The overall series is one of the best martial arts spoofs ever.

Warning – not for the younger set.
