Product Description

Ranma runs into a shady man who runs a secret black market store on Furinkan High's campus! Principal Kuno wants him off the grounds, but this is one feisty merchant that won't go without a fight. Then, Ranma, Ryoga and Mousse travel into the mountains in search of the legendary Spring of Drowned Man in an attempt to restore their original forms. Will the three martial artists be successful, or will paranoia tear them apart? Plus, what is Genma thinking when he names Ryoga as the interior of the Anything Goes School of Martial Arts!?

Ranma 1/2 Random Rhapsody Vol. 2 - The Way We're Not (Contains 3 episodes)

Amazon.com

In the last volume, Back to the Way We Were... Please, a peddler offers Ranma, Ryoga, and Mousse the answer to their prayers: a powder that will reverse the curse of the Spring of the Drowned Man that causes them to transform into a girl, pig, and duck, respectively. They buy three envelopes of powder, only to discover the labels are missing. One envelope contains the magic antidote; the other two are unknown substances, and bathing in them could produce horrific results. The efforts of the trio to figure out whose envelope is whose and which one contains the curse-ending philter provide the special brand of slapstick comedy that has made Ranma 1/2 an international hit. Typical insanity reigns in the other two episodes. Ranma wanders into a deserted corridor of Furinken High and stumbles across a strange old man who guards a dark secret about the school's nutty principal in "The Secret Don of Furinken High." The filmmakers spoof the look of historical manga to depict the old geezer's tangled memories and fantasies. In the third episode, an argument over a batch of stolen candy escalates into Genma disinheriting his son. But if he does, what happens to the fractious "engagement" between Ranma and Akane? Things eventually get sorted out, but there's no way any situation in Ranma could be described as "back to normal." Not rated; suitable for ages 12 up: slapstick violence. --Charles Solomon

The first esp is Okay but the other two are TOO FUNNY! Just as all Ranma stuff is, it made me laugh out loud and made me smile.
Get this one if you love Ranma but not for people looking at Ranma for the first time

This volume is great, though the second episode is slightly weak, it is the other two that make this worth getting. The best is the second episode, in which Ranma, Ryoga, and Mousse get a possible cure for their curses. It is so funny! They're constantly worried about what they could turn into if they get the wrong cure, and some of the ideas they have are off the wall. The funniest scene is when Kasumi imagines what it would be like if everyone was a panda. I couldn't stop laughing at that!

It is nice to finally see the TV series appearing on DVD. The movies and OAV's have been out for a while on DVD and now Viz is putting out Random Rhapsody (the sixth season) on disc as well. There is not a lot of extras on this DVD nor is the transfer quality all that high (this is why I gave it a 4 instead of 5)but the durability of DVD and the quality of the episodes themselves still recommend this. Episode 1--Dear Daddy Love Kodachi This epsiode finally gets rid of easily the most annoying Ranma character, Principal Kuno. His leaving plus a litttle Kodachi and Tatewaki (always funny characters) make for an above average episode. Episode 2--Enter Gosunkugi This episode introduces Gosunkugi, an annoying but funny loser who is obsessed with Akane and who wants to remove Ranma. He is going to be in many more episodes so this is a good one to see. Episode 3--Ranma's Calligraphy Challenge Mostly a useless episode with another weird character with another wierd martial art style to challenge Ranma. Weakest of the three
