RANMA 1/2 THE MOVIE : Big Trouble in Nekonron, China It's an ordinary day around the Tendo Martial Arts Training Hall when a strange character arrives on a flying elephant. Ranma, the boy who turns into a girl when splashed with water, and all the other zany characters are forced to travel to China to save Akane, who has been kidnapped by a Chinese prince. Ranma has to battle his way through the Seven Lucky Gods of Martial Arts to save her, but she may choose to marry the handsome prince anyway!

RANMA 1/2 THE MOVIE 2: Nihao My Concubine An outing on Kuno's yacht turns into a wild adventure when the usual cast of characters is marooned on an island, and one by one the girls of the group disappear! The males have to battle an assortment of wacky foes, while Ranma goes undercover as a girl to save his fiancée, Akane. However, his hot body and revealing outfit may land him in the bedchambers of the island's ruler instead of her! The sex-changing antics of Ranma 1/2 were never more hilarious!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic movies November 7, 2007
Both of Ranma 1/2 movies are great. They both deal with someone abducting Akane. If I had to choose I would say the 2nd movie was better. Mainly because of the fights at the end. All of the main characters get to battle one of the bad guys.

The first movie deals with Akane being kidnapped by the cult of pickle worshipers...I am serious. Ranma has to battle all each of the 7 lucky god's martial artists. The movie is slow at the beginning, but picks up past towards the middle.

The second movie is about Akane being kidnapped by a young prince. The main cast has been stranded on a deserted island. The twist in this movie is he kidnaps every women he sees and pits them in a contest for his hand in marriage. This movie has some great fan service. The girls have on some of the most revealing bathing suits you will ever see. Ukyou is the standout winner on this front.

I know there must be a little concern over the price. $49 for 2 movies? In context it isn't an unreasonable price. When they first came out on VHS is was $34.99 per movie. I know because I paid that. I have seen the price as low at $42 on this site. It may seem like a lot but your getting your getting your money's worth.

3.0 out of 5 stars The films themselves are good, but this set is a ripoff October 27, 2009
The Ranma 1/2 Movie DVD Box Set is a two disc set. The first disc contains the first Ranma 1/2 movie, Big Trouble in Nekonron, China. The second disc contains the second Ranma 1/2 movie, Nihao My Concubine. However, neither disc contains any special features.

While the films themselves were very enjoyable, I was disappointed that all this two disc set had were the movies. The runtime for the first film is 81 minutes, and the runtime for the second film is 59 minutes. With such short runtimes, both films could have easily fit onto one disc. However, between releasing the films in a two-disc box set, and not including any special features, it comes across that Viz Media was more interested in finding a way to be able to charge as much as possible and not put much effort into the release. By putting the films into a two-disc set, Viz Media seemed to feel they were justified to charge the same amount for this set as for the episode box sets. Personally, I feel that the set, as it is now, is a ripoff.

While I enjoy Ranma 1/2, I think Viz Media is charging too much for this set. If you are a Ranma 1/2 fan and want to have everything on DVD, then you do need to acquire this set to complete your collection. However, I would recommend seeing if you can find it for a better price, either because a retail outlet regularly sells it for a lower price, or the set is lowered during a sales promotion. Or, as a last resort, you can always wait for the price to fall naturally, because the set has been out for a long enough time that Viz Media feels they've gotten as many sales as they can at the higher price. However, it could still be a couple of years before that happens, so you might have to wait a while for that option.

4.0 out of 5 stars A usual September 12, 2009

I've seen this movies plenty of times, and they are, of course, 'very Ranma'. Nothing new here but I would really apreciatte some subtitles in other languages other than english. Portuguese, french or spanish at least.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anime screwball comedy August 29, 2014
Verified Purchase
The movies are extensions of the popular TV show and are relatively short with thin plots. Something Ranma does gets misinterpreted and things showball from there. However, the transfer quality and sound were pretty good and laughs were to be had. This isn't great enough to earn 5 stars but it was fairly entertaining. Among some of the funnier aspects were the easy availability of both hot and cold water in remote locations on a moment's notice.
