This is a lovely episode that really gives Akane some shining moments. Ranma has a few as well, which makes everyone happy, but this is really Akane's story with Ranma and Ryoga along to support.
Music in this is fun as all the OVA's had some of my favourite OPs of the whole series:
#01:"Koi da! Panic! (Love Panic!)" by Yawmin (eps 1-6) /
#01: "Love Panic! (English Version)" by Connie Lavigne (eps 1-6) /
#02: "Boku-tachi Wa Kore Kara (Us From Now On)" by DoCo (ep 7) /
#02: "Us From Now On (English Version)" by DoCo USA (eps 7-11).
The side characters
and setting are what really create a fun mood with a bit of sentimentality and someone who actually appreciates Akane's cooking for once! This is a fun take on a well know legend.
