Editorial Reviews

The mayhem continues in Ranma 1/2!

Ranma Saotome, the boy who turns into a girl with a splash of water, always has his hands full fending off crazed admirers. One of the most fanatical is Shampoo, a girl from a tribe of Chinese Amazons who tried to kill girl Ranma, was defeated by boy Ranma, and then proposes marriage to him due to her clan s rule. Things get a little crazier when Shampoo falls into a cursed spring and turns into a cat! And even crazier when Mousse, who is in love with Shampoo, challenges Ranma to a battle over...Ranma s fiancée, Akane...? Back at the Tendo dojo, Ranma s dad, Genma, and Akane s dad, Soun, receive a visit from their former master, Happosai. Around the same time, some of the neighborhood ladies find their undies are disappearing... Is Happosai responsible, or is it just a coincidence?

Rumiko Takahashi s classic martial arts romantic comedy Ranma ½ is back! This
limited-edition Blu-ray collection is presented in 1080p high definition in the original Japanese Blu-ray episode order. Also included are all-new extra features including fan interviews highlighting the Ranma ½ phenomenon, an exclusive art card and a booklet with episode summaries.


Includes 23 remastered episodes on 3 Blu-ray discs.

Languages: English, Japanese with English subtitles and English with songs and signs subtitles

In a stroke of luck, my copy of Ranma 1/2 Set 2 arrived in the mail almost two weeks in advance of street date. While I love using Amazon in general, there are simply better places to order Anime and Manga if you're looking to get your merchandise ahead of time. I've taken a series of photos of the set, but I can't post them here yet as there doesn't seem to be an option to share user photos ahead of release.

However I CAN write an advanced review, so let's get right to it, shall we?

As I've stated in my previous reviews, I'm a huge fan of Ranma 1/2. When I first discovered it, I consumed as much of it as I could possibly get my hands on. Trouble is, the mid-to-late 1990s were not a time in which you could get your hands on full TV box sets, so I typically ended up watching scattered episodes from across the series with little rhyme or reason. Whatever Blockbuster Video or Hastings had in stock is what I watched. I never knew with any certainty what I might find when I went to the video store, but one thing I do know is that some of my favorite episodes were to be found on tapes with the subtitles "Anything Goes Martial Arts" and "Hard Battle".

Ranma 1/2 Set 2 is comprised largely of "Anything Goes Martial Arts" (season 2) episodes, with a sprinkling of "Hard Battle" (season 3) thrown in for good measure. This is both awesome and sad news: while some of my favorite episodes were shown during the "Hard Battle" season, the episodes on offer in this set don't quite make it to the ones I enjoy the most (my very favorite episode of Ranma 1/2 will appear on Set 3... more on that in September when the set is released).

Excellent as always if you have the gene for enjoyment. Upon my first watching of this anime i found Season 1 to be by far the best and most enjoyable, with Season 2 not far behind in quality. The more i researched the show i realized this was due to the change in staff/animation quality and the sudden use of filler for practically entire seasons past Season 3. After finishing about 70 episodes i took a break. I began reflecting on why the show suddenly stopped having a continuing plot-line. Suddenly Akane became a sidekick to each weeks cookie cutter episode. I later watched a season or two more and found there were a few filler episodes that were entirely too enjoyable for me to dismiss this show. To my surprised smile i found out they were releasing this show ( that i thought would be lost in history) in high definition in North America. These sets are absolutely gorgeous. The quality is stupendous. The price is tolerable considering they give you slightly more than a seasons worth on each set. I have yet to re-watch this new Set as im still slowly savoring Set 1. But if i recall correctly this is the last season that's not doused mostly in filler, considerably some of the highest quality anime from the 1980's. Filler or no filler i now understand that i must cherish everything Rumiko Takahashi related. I personally find that i enjoy long running anime series from the 1980's and 90's more so than most modern anime. There is a limit to how much Urusei Yatsura, Ranma 1/2 and (dear god possibly my favorite) Maison Ikkoku is in this world, i intend to slowly enjoy all of those stories amidst different mediums. It makes me happy to hear that no matter how these sets sell they will release them all. I will most likely buy all of them, anything to convince to release the other Hi-def remasters of her work in anime. And because this show is completely unique in its subject/setting/humour.

I used to love Ranma 1/2, and it was back in the days when you'd pay $20-25 for three episodes on a VHS tape. This Blu-Ray collection is a fantastic re-do in a lot of ways. The original material has been very well cleaned up, you get a LOT more episodes for your dollar (23!), and each flows properly with the opening and ending credits and commercial-break animations still kept in their proper place.

I loved the fact that some short Japanese sequences (opening/closing titles) that were never translated were added in. Where we used to have to hunt to find dubbed versus subtitled episodes, this Blu-ray collection will not only do English or Japanese, you can also choose if you want subtitles for just the written words, dialogue, or both. Like any American TV series, you might get a "clip episode" or two, but even those are still entertaining to watch.

Since this still isn't enough, you also get a colorful piece of art, printed on card stock (in this set a cute picture of girl-type Ranma and P-Chan) plus a booklet that starts with a "The story so far" synopsis, then sums up each episode and also includes a thumbnail image of each.

If you're new to the series, you should begin with Set 1 - it's worth the journey that builds up the story. This is one of my favorite anime/manga titles of all time and I look forward to continuing to purchase these sets as they come out.

These days my Anime disc collection is pretty limited, having passed on all my old VHS tapes, leaving only a few cherished DVDs: COWBOY BEBOP, SCHOOL RUMBLE, and X HUNTER X along with a few Anime movies, and I am quite pleased to now add this fantastic Blu-Ray set to them. The production value isn't over the top, but still very eye pleasing, including the magna reproduction that I hadn't realized came with each set.

The interior disc holder is actually quite nice, being this pseudo-soft plastic that just "feels" like it independently cradles the discs while keeping them firmly in place. There has been dawning horrors when I have realized a disc was loose, rattling around hard plastic casing, and I have never been a fan of the layered disc approach.

The audio/subtitle setup offers a full range of options, and all in all, I look forward to continuing Blu-Ray releases by Viz Media.
