Ranma Saotome continues his search for a way to become a normal teenage boy again. He gets into many hilarious situations involving the many girls in his life. One of the biggest challenges is overcoming the proposals from others who have found a suitable bride for Ranma. But he has his own worries and must muster up the best of his wits and martial arts to keep his sanity. It's not easy being desired by so many women (and men) and not breaking hearts of a few along the way. He just might be able to find it in his heart to confess to Akane or simply find another excuse that he can't marry such a tomboy girl.

These OAVs are definitely some of Takahashi Rumiko's best work ever (in the Ranma 1/2 world). There are some really fantastic, hilarious story arcs here and crazy adventures to be had by all. Absolutely some of my favourite episodes and some very touching moments as well. Ukiyo and Kuno fans will be especially happy with these episodes and they present even more depth to this rich and rewarding show!

This set also has my favourite music of the Ranma 1/2 universe/franchise with some lovely OP/EDs and nice in-episode songs as well.

,,Each absurd has its own logic"

Despite being merely 6 episodes long this OVA manages to capture what we love about the original series while not getting boring for a single bit. First 4 episodes are a self contained stories that are mainly pandering to the fandom who wants to see cliches from the original series done again but in a higher quality. If you enjoyed the less serious episodes of the original then you'll love what this OVA has in store for you, all main characters appear for at least a few scenes, the plot is just a pretext for puting the main cast in read more

One of my personal favorite OVA parts of Ranma 1/2. Even though the anime hasn't been completed these OVAS give the viewer more of a softer view of some of the characters.
