Damn, that dragon saves this episode... almost. I've expected an epic fight with it, but oh well, the ending we've got instead is also good.

There is such thing as shit taste. Only idiots think that every "work of art" should have the same value.

Persona anime are good. Deal with it.

Pretty good little arc for just special eps, thought it would mostly be random comedy eps.

That orochi was a big pervert.
That ending with Ranma reaching for Akane's hand was sweet.

Quite touching special, was definitely fond of Akane in this one.

One Piece episode 914 & 915 & 1027 were a mistake and 957 brought the salvation - FMmatron

Two episode OVA that just should've been a fanservice special imo.

I'm almost 30 years late but just finished it. Funny to see the jealousy table get turned on Ranma. The fanservice dragon fight brought out some lols. Love the DoCo music. Good stuff overall.

Wow really what I've been craving in the Ranma Series! Akane having her own adventure, as barsoapguy219 said above, the tables get turned on Ranma finally! And they state their feelings for one another, even holding hands at the end!!!! Loved it.

A different OP and ED? I thought it'd reuse the same one as MAL said. Guess these two specials were released separately. The OP doesn't have an English version and I wonder who the guy Akane's with is?
The dub ED from this special was reused in Movie 3 it seems. That's why it sounded different. They're two different songs which I failed to recognize. Anyways, love all of them.
I don't understand why girls who aren't in the special are in the OPs and EDs though.

This was a very good special. Akane wasn't a damsel in distress but actually useful. I don't hate her or anything, I'm just very disappointed because most of the time she's not as well-written as she could've been.

Anyone else think male Ranma looked feminine in this special? Not in all shots, only sometimes.

Shinnosuke seems genuinely a much better guy than either Ranma or Ryoga ngl.  The perverted Shen-Long and crossdressing war are pretty much Rumiko shenanigans but I'm not expecting those dragons to be a pervert. The ending with Ranma's hand reaching out for Akane is quite cute.

Akane is so pretty with long hair in the OP. I wish she kept that hairstyle.
Now that's the Akane cooking we know and hate. Haha!
The scene of them pretending to be women and angering the monster in the process was so funny!
Female Ranma in that school uniform was kind of sexy! I honestly felt like screwing him/her! Haha!
I love the ED. It made me feel nostalgic. Big bonus that Shampoo was in it. But where's my love, Ukyo!?
