The first time I ever posted on the internet was about Ranma 1/2.

Back when Neopets was a thing and I was young enough to be its target audience, I went to the fanclubs board and found a thread about it.

I posted that I thought it was fun and I really liked the theme song.

Then someone came in and told me I was stupid because I watched the series dubbed instead of in the original Japanese.

So I got a crash course on the tenor of anime fandom discussion right off.

From what I watched back in the day and what I've read of the manga, it's pretty awesome. One of the funniest anime/manga I've ever seen, and sort of a reference in matter of general anime/manga humor and visuals for me.

Let's be fair with you, Inuyasha began as a very promising manga/anime.
But it ended being into a terrible rehash of Rumiko's usual character archetypes, plus a repetitive plot that didn't went anywhere and a terrible villain that anyone wanted to see dead yet the fucker always managed to make a moronic asspull to continue trollin' around.
>> No. 75368
At least for as dragged out as Inuyasha was, it ended. Ranma? Ranma never married anyone (though I'm glad Akane didn't get him since I hated the bitch). He also is never cured from his curse either.

Seriously half fucking assed series. Inuyasha at least had actual closure. And Ranma itself was also getting repetitive with the antics of the samey characters. Inuyasha was a step up even if it was still garbage.
>> No. 75369
Ranma didn't need an end. It wasn't about the destination or the journey, it was just good times. Inuyasha simply went nowhere for years and years while pretending to have a narrative.
>> No. 75370
Too bad he's going to marry Akane when they get thier affairs in order, 'bitch'.

Anyway all the characters in Ranma1/2 are horrible people, apart from Kasumi, at least in the this case she isn't an attempted murderer.

And whenever something mucks up a moment between Ranma and Akane, she takes it out on Ranma. Seriously WTF? Beat up your own stupid childlish father Akane since Ranma has nothing to do with him.

Similarly even when something is not his fault Kagome and the rest of the so called "friends" of Inuyasha blamed him. With friends like that who honestly needed enemies. If Inuyasha went berserk and brutally killed them all, I wouldn't have minded since they were terrible friends.
>> No. 75381
To be fair, Ranma and Inuyasha were both just as bad as the rest of them. They only got more abuse by being connected to more people, they didn't hold themselves up to any higher standard of behavior. If anything, Ranma and Akane DESERVE each other.

To a degree I agree. The lack of self respect and allowing themselves to get abused is their own damn fault. Its why I can't stand many Japanese animes these days.

Is it just me or a requirement for too many animes and mangas is "The protagonist must LACK self respect and must be a punching bag for the universe the majority of the time except in his little bouts where we show how cool he is BUT will instantly go back to being a whipped loser."

Ugh I could not stomach Ganta (Deadman Wonderland) or Sato (Bento) or Touma (Index) because they let everyone come down on them.

He's a young teen, I don't see the problem with him not having a particularly gruff voice.
Also wasn't there two different voice actors for male ranma over the course of the anime & movies?
>> No. 75390
Just because he has pride doesn't mean that he does anything about his problems. A lot of his problems would go away if he wasn't such a loser. I mean Kuno, what's his face (glasses guy), Ryoga, Shampoo, Akane, Happosai, Ukyo, etc.

A lot of these problems would go the hell away if he beat them all up to a paralyzing crippling point. You know like literally break their bones into dust and don't say he can't do it. Rule of a show is protagonist is strongest (loose exceptions like Rurouni Kenshin are just a minority).

If he incapacitated them for life in the finale of the series they could no longer ruin his own life. But unfortunately every mangaka is a loser who thinks "tee hee protagonist has problems and he just takes it like a little bitch." My god I'm not looking for some edgy cool guy or anything Loser Protagonists who are abused annoy the everloving fuck out of me.

Its why I couldn't stand US cartoons like CatDog.
>> No. 75391
Wow, you're a fucking psycho.

That is not the way to go about fixing his problems.
>> No. 75392
Come on man more than half the shit we see in anime is illegal. You think people get into fights and that they loser or winner are left alone after the fight concludes? Hell no, in real life Ranma would be drowning in lawsuits from all the beatings he dished out.

Hell even before the series began, Akane had a reputation for beating up any guy that wanted to date her and challenge her (including the ones who weren't even fighters). Bitch would be locked up in a lesbo prison for years if it wasn't a work of fiction, especially with the A rank lawyers that someone like Kuno can hire.

So that's why I don't hesitate in proposing Ranma makes every single person who tarnished his life permanently a resident of a hospital. Just think of it as Dr. Whatever His Name is being set for life and he is glad Ranma helped him make a killing in his career.
>> No. 75393
>A lot of these problems would go the hell away if he beat them all up to a paralyzing crippling point. You know like literally break their bones into dust

I'm not sure you should be reading things like Ranma if you expect that mindset. Or most anything written by a sane person, really.
>> No. 75394
To be fair my friend I didn't start out with this mindset. I have a certain amount of tolerance after a while of Ranma being beaten by Akane or getting wrecked by Happosai, etc you begin to really realize just how awful all these people are. Its kind of like King of the Hill with Hank being surrounded by terrible people. So after you make that kind of connection you honestly cannot help but think "Man these people deserve it."

Another cartoon that had such an abysmal cast was CatDog. The cast was so abusive that it made you go "If Cat went postal on them, I wouldn't blame him." You got to throw a bone to the protagonists every once in a while (or at least don't immediately undermine whatever little piece of a good thing happening to the protagonist), otherwise you got a very unbearable product.
>> No. 75395
Sounds more like you've got issues about being picked on in real life and project it onto the main characters of series you watch, so you want him/you to prove them wrong by CRIPPLING EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN HIS LIFE.

That's stupid.

The true way he could solve his actual problems would be to stop keeping a harem around because it appeals to his manly pride, and instead be honest with his feelings and stop being such a needless dick to cover it up.
Your way is highly out of character for him, you might as well claim he should murder them all.
>> No. 75396
>>Hell even before the series began, Akane had a reputation for beating up any guy that wanted to date her and challenge her (including the ones who weren't even fighters)
Do you actually read the series? She was attacked by a crowd of guys every morning before school because Kuno made an annoucement that only a man who could beat her in a fight could date her. That's called self-defense.

Did she ever try to talk them down/correct them or not? It means the difference between she was already okay with beating up guys to being a full victim in the scenario who had to adapt.

This is beginning to sound oddly similar to the "She was asking for it" defense, though to be fair the entire situation is kinda fucked up, a gang of young men hounding a single girl and assaulting her day after day?
It still isn't something she should be freakin arrested for, or blamed for beating up 'non-fighters' seeing as they were always the ones charging her and she clearly doesn't enjoy the attention in any fashion.

Dude, the reason Ranma never took it to that level was that he took all aspects of the Art seriously, including never hurting those who could not defend themselves. As far as he was concerned, if he beat them, they couldn't defend themselves against him, and shouldn't be hurt any more.

Heck, the one time he actually "killed" someone (Saffron, volume 38) he shows remorse that he had to go that far, and only did it to save Akane.
>> No. 75432

Inuyasha never had promise. It was always dull as shit, and it had not a single character who was likeable or interesting until Miroku and Sangl busted onto the scene like eighty chapters in. Until that point literally the only entertainment came from watching Kagome shout 'sit!' at Inuyasha.

Actually it is. Love Hina IS one of my top favorites, even because it's got a lot of slapstick (exactly as you mentioned), but I'm pretty sure Ranma is kinda on the same level. Comedy manga at its finest. And as for boobs, I suppose it's hard to match Shampoo.

Dunno about "delicious brown girl" tho, I'm not into kids (I'll admit Shinobu-chan didn't make it easy with all the cute awkwardness). :P

Now that I think of it, I wonder if Kaolla's transformation had a bit of inspiration from Ranma.
>> No. 75502
You could probably link Ranma 1/2 to inspiring a whole buncha things. Along with Urusei Yatsura, which pretty much brought the magical girlfriend trope to Japan.
>> No. 75505
Hmmm I had no clue on where this trope began there, truth. Personally I just linked it to "I Dream of Jeannie".
>> No. 75511

Actually, the origins of the magical girlfriend go back to ur-time. Man-"taming"-magical-woman-into-wife (who then assists him in his adventures) is a fairly common fairy tale trope that is generally presumed to be a facet of the Levi-Straussian-identified female<->nature/the animal male<->culture dichotomy of myth, and like all fairy tales most likely served as a subconscious enforcement of the norms of all society up to pretty much this point (i.e. completely patriarchal.) In a substantial amount of fable and myth, a prevalent theme is that a women without a man (usually a husband) to guide her is both powerful (threatening) and if not explicitly wicked then at least dangerous (uncontrollable). It's only when the male either disposes of her or wins/earns her servitude that her magic becomes beneficial - the really, really obvious metaphor for the cultural ideal what women should be under men, made even more obvious by the fact that fairy tales' magical assistants are almost always animals (to be domesticated, as is "man's right") or women (to be domesticated, as was and still is in many places "man's right") You can always find some, but human male magical assistants are few and far between and generally don't stick around in the story.

The male relationship with the female in stories before the modern era can generally be sorted in to two types - women are frail and must be controlled to save them from the world around them (chivalry) or women are primitive and must be controlled to save them from themselves (hysteria). Magical girlfriends were one of the foremost examples of type 2, which is reflected in modern tropes today - one of the most common plot devices in magical girlfriend stories is that either she won't control her powers (Lum's comedic abuse) or can't control her powers (Jeannie's comedic mishaps). Women who are in complete control of their powers and are not romantically attached to a man in some way are more often than not villains.

(To go on a tangent, my personal theory, though I'd have to do more research to back it up, is that this is why Western female superheroes don't really get Lois Lane-equivalents that are memorable or stick around for long and pretty much exclusively date other male superheroes - after millennia of stories where powerful women always end up tamed, relationships where a woman holds all the power and the man none end up feeling weird to us, and unlike Japanese audiences the Western audience is not so amenable to the whole "it's okay because she devotes her everything to him because she's just so in loooove" thing that generally negates the power imbalance in anime/manga.)

Though that's not to say there are no exceptions to all of these things! Belldandy and pretty-much-all-female-cast anime/manga series come to mind. And while it certainly is based on misogyny, it's becoming less so now that women are getting on on the action and leveling the playing field with their reverse-harem mangas and shiny supernatural boyfriends.

Sorry for the unasked infodump. I wrote a paper about this just recently, so it was on automatic recall.
>> No. 75517
Haha what a coincidence! Not just that you wrote the paper thing, but also I was thinking mainly of Belldandy in anime when I brought up Jeannie, the connection I made was between these two. Love both series.

Anyway, i had been thinking on modern culture, mostly, as in 20th century. First examples that came to mind were Bewitched and Jeannie... anyone before those?

I read the manga up to a certain point in high school, and my friend gave me a disk with the entire manga saved on it, but I couldn't get the files to open, so I've never gotten to see how it ended.

Come to think of it, I never got to see how any of the animes running on Adult Swim at the time ended, either. Trigun, Lupin, Wolf's Rain, etc. I wonder about that.

I loved it. The only thing I hated was that broadcasters censored the boobies.

My first contact with the series was comic I had bought back in the days from a comics store in my country. It was imported from the US, from VIZ and obviously in english.

One year later a public station started to broadcast the anime in the 4pm slot and I became a fan.

My favorite episodes of the anime were those where Atsuko Nakajima was in charge.

Akane was one of my first waifus along with Ami Mizuno.

.....wow you're a sap (and girls like Nabiki would never give a chance since you don't have cash to begin with). Do you know why I complimented Cologne? Cause she obviously has use for money, but get this she WORKS for it. She has a business based on the food industry and gets her income there. Kudos to her and Ukyo who also has her stand.

Nabiki on the other hand is a black mailing cunt who would probably sell you out for a couple of cents ala Mr. Krabs from Spongebob. That makes her a real bitch. The only kind of people I don't feel sorry for getting ripped off by her are morons like Kuno since the faggot pays her buckets of cash for some of the most idiotic and worthless things.

>> No. 80972
That's a lot of assumptions you've made there, buddy, (and a lot of periods, too...) All personal attacks and dubious financial insights aside, however, I'd like to propose that your hatred of Nabiki has less to do with the character and more to do with your deep-seated mistrust of women in general.
Let's break this down:
Saying someone is better than a "gold digging bitch" is hardly a compliment. Not many people will take it as such.
Cologne is old as sin. If she didn't have her own source of income by now, that really would be a problem. Nabiki, however, is not an adult, so I won't hold not having her own cafe against her. Don't you think it's a bit hypocritical of you to assign worth to women based on how much money they can earn you?
As for Ukyo, well, she does have the benefit of inheriting the family business. Unfortunately, not everyone works during high school, but that's hardly an unforgivable sin.
Mr. Krabs' avarice is exaggerated for comedic purposes. Nabiki's money-grubbing is the same. However, this doesn't make either character "a real bitch." Being able to make distinctions based on genre is a useful skill, but you'll never master it if you go out of your way to find something to hate.
It's good that you don't feel sorry for Kuno, but maybe you should cool it with the invectives. Once again, he's a comedic archetype. Also, using the word "faggot" will hardly endear you to most. It certainly won't help convince anyone that you're not some misogynistic cretin.

Even after all these years, I'm still find Shampoo my favourite, even if she's cray cray.
>> No. 81787
Atsuko Nakajima was the best character designer this show ever had. She's the main reason to follow it for.
>> No. 81845
Shampoo was Chinese so she would always be hated in Japan and prevented from winning. There a reason Japan hates her and all different Asians hate each other? And don't skip on the cray cray.
>> No. 81846
Its less her being Chinese and more her being an attempted-murderer who would gladly force him into marriage (or other things...) with her through a dirty trick.

Even with how the anime whitewashed her a tad compared to the original story she certainly doesn't deserve to 'win'.
>> No. 81856
All the female characters in Ranma should have been thrown behind bars besides Kasumi. Then again I only like Shampoo because she's hot and as many would, fuck her stupid if given the chance.
>> No. 81858
Maybe so but Shampoo tops them all in terms of attempted murder, and likely in dirty tricks to force Ranma into legally binding marriage.

Kodachi would likely be right there with her if she showed up as much, though with even more counts of attempted rape.

Aye, but I've always preferred Ukyo to Shampoo. Less crazy, and dem bangs.
>> No. 81862
She was still kinda crazy, what with the dishonest ways she tried to force Ranma into legally-binding marriage.
You can understand it a little because Ranma's dad pulling a dine-and-dash on her family messed her up but still thats not cool.

God Ranma's Dad was such a bastard.
>> No. 81863
Eh, all this is pointless. Crazy murderous bitch or not, Shampoo is still the best.
>> No. 81864
To be fair it makes sense for why Ranma's dad is such a jackass. Even the women from HIS generation when he was young were crazy bitches. In one scene his reward for acting like an honest truthful guy to an ex was getting horribly beaten. He learned from that experience evidently and started to become the cheating jackass liar we all know him as. Quite frankly you kind of can't fault him in the way he suckered and used the families of some of the girls including his supposed best friend Akane's father.

Dude we don't care about your ladder theory or whatever, deal with your issues yourself and move on.
>> No. 81922
Of the "brides" of Ranma who would you fuck stupid and who did you never like.

Would Tap - Shampoo. Crazy bitch, but that body. Helps that she's the only one they show naked when appropriate like in the bath house episodes.

Would Not Tap - Kodachi. Nothing attractive about her, crazy as well and just plain old horribly irrelevant and no reason to exist to even give a passable impression.
>> No. 81936
Hence "Less crazy" instead of "Not crazy".

Agreed, Kodachi is shit tier.
>> No. 81945
I honestly can't remember an arc where Kodachi was funny.
>> No. 81946
She was like Kuno... but more rapey and underhanded.

Did you start at the beginning? Because the animation quality after the first season gets way worse.

It does improve in the later seasons, though.

And the movies are fucking gorgeous compared to the series.

I always thought Ranma and Akane always suited each other the best because they're both kind of colossal dicks.

But yeah, Ukyo for best girl.
>> No. 86094
Everyone is a dick in the series except for Kasumi... maybe Dr Tofu but then he gets forgotten like Launch in DBZ.

Akane might 'deserve' it compared to the other girls because she's the only one who never tries to force Ranma into a legally binding marriage or sex through either magic, drugs or manipulating his Japanese sense of honour.

Threads last for infinity on +4. Topics with moderate interest will dip below Page 0 and then get bumped up when something of interest comes along (or a spambot gets into them.) I'm sure we have threads that go all the way back to when we had to restart the board a few years ago somewhere...
