How could I possibly finish my reviews of Ranma 1/2 without mention the 12 OVA episodes that followed the show? These 12 episodes pick up right where we left off. Ranma and the gang are still growing together and getting into the usual...until these 12 episodes came along that is.

These episodes truly stand alone from the origional TV series. For one the animation is brilliant and much more fluid that the TV show, but thats how it goes with the quality factor. What truly sets these 12 episodes up on the pedestil is the intensity that is brought with each incredible half hour. There isn't much room for cheap laughs here. There is everything from giant 7 headed dragons to baby phoenixes, enchanted murderous dolls and even a huge christmas party that has an ending that will make you want to hold that special someone close to you.

Finally this is the moment in time where we get one step closer to the bond of Ranma and Akane at this stage in life Ranma lets the world and the viewers know exactly how he feels about Akane. So prepare for the action the laughs and yes the many tears that are shead as you watch the final 12 special adventures of Ranma 1/2. (Trust me you can skip the movies)

*Recomended Episode: Tendo Christmas Scramble*

If you are looking to own the DoCo music videos that were the original opening and endings to the OAVs, you will not find them here. Viz completely left them out of this smaller set, which is an EXTREME dissapointment to me, since that was half of the reason why I liked the OAVs so much. Bad form, Viz. Bad form.

They also chose to arrange the discs in the same case, stacked on top of each other, which always makes me worry about scratches and the like. Not happy with this set up at all.

But if you just want a review of the actual content, the Ranma OAVs are wonderful. Probably the only "episodes" of the series that I could still sit down and enjoy with no worries.

If you're looking for a super-violent porn cartoon (as MST3K called them), this show is not for you. But if your looking for a zany comedy with real character development this show is the best thing you could get from Japan. The OVA's have noticeably better animation than the show itself, as these were independently produced. My wife and I watch them over and over again on a regular basis. Think of it as a sitcom with the unlimited possibilities of an animation. Definitely a great start for anyone interested in the series.

The Ranma 1/2 OAV Series DVD set has two discs that include all twelve OAV episodes released for the series. Each disc contains six episodes. The first disc has: "Shampoo's Sudden Switch - The Curse of the Contrary Jewel," "Tendo Family Christmas Scramble," "Akane vs. Ranma! I'll Be the One to Inherit Mother's Recipes!," "Stormy Weather Comes to School! Growing Up With Miss Hinako," and both parts of "The One to Carry On." The second disc has: both parts of "Reawakening Memories," "Team Ranma vs. The Legendary Phoenix," "Oh, Cursed Tunnel of Lost Love! Let My Love Be Forever," "The Evil Ogre! Hell Hath No Fury Like Kasumi Scorned," and "The Two Akanes! `Ranma, Look at Me!'."

Most of the episodes included in this set are very enjoyable, and include the humor that is expected from Ranma 1/2. The animation quality is also noticeably better than the animation in the regular series episodes. However, I was rather disappointed that there are absolutely no special features included in the set. On the one hand, I understand that since six episodes are included on each disc, there really wouldn't have been room for any special features. If it had been up to me, I would have made the Ranma 1/2 OAV Series box set a three-disc set, where each disc had four episodes and some special features. Also, I was disappointed that Viz Media decided not to subtitle the opening theme song that appears on the second disc of the set.

The Ranma 1/2 OAV Series DVD box set sells at retail outlets for about $45, which is basically the same price the season box sets sell for. While I enjoy Ranma 1/2, I think Viz Media is charging too much for the OAV series box, especially for what you get.

OVA and OAV and which one to buy
I do not know about the second link, but the two link appear to be the same but the defference between the first link and the 2006 edition is that the 2006 edition doesn't have the original op/end music videos that were replaced by vid for the us version. So if you want the extras get the... Read More
