Preliminary Spoiler
Dec 4, 2012
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 ...

The Ranma OVAs are little side stories to complement the main series. They're short, fun, and have better animation.

Story
Akane has a flashback to her childhood where she was saved from monsters in a forest by a mysterious boy. She hears that monsters have reappeared in a village and she heads off to investigate. She meets the boy who has grown into a man and discovers the nature of the forest.

Ranma chases her and Ryoga shows up too. Hijinks ensue.

Art
The art is actually pretty good. It is better than I remember the original series being. It looks more clean, more consistent, and better ...
