yeah! i LOVE ranma!
it was my first manga and i remember sitting at the library for hours cracking up reading it.
if you ever looked at my journals doodles of ranma, akane, ryoga, ukyo, and shampoo filled it all.
my favorite character is ryoga because how lost he always was.
i liked his transformation the most and i love that episode where him and ranma eat these mushrooms that turn them into being four yrs old again.
Ryoga has to be one of the best creations of Takahashi-san's! He's so damn funny! No sense of direction what-so-ever. There was the time when he and Ranma tried to find the spring of drowned man in Japan and Ryoga was trying to head East, yet walking the opposite direction of the sunrise, LOL.
There was an episode from the OAV series, where he just popped up out of nowhere! He burst through the ground and said, "Now where am I??" LOL. I cracked up so hard!
Happosai's pretty funny as well, but that's just because I'm amused by dirty old men, ha ha!
I love ranma, I think it was dragged on too far though, rumiko takahashi has a thing with doing that! it was cool, i have the manga , too it and only like 1 dvd but i still like it!
