@Lucifrost - huh, I hadn't been following Urusei much, interesting that it was just specific parts. Thanks for letting me know.

So Ranma wasn't a full adaptation. I know there was a LOT of filler, so I guess I should have expected it. But it also had a lot of OVAs and movies. Any idea how close it was to being fully adapted?

I guess this new version might do something similar to Urusei then.

I'll watch closely how will they handle this adaptation by adapting good chapters or fan favorites. It's better not be best picks like UY remake which is very underwhelming. They need to tone down Happosai and decrease his screen time to make an enjoyable watch because that shit is so unbearable. And also I hope they could made the romantic development between Rankane better too.

The problem with Happosai isn't so much that people would be offended, but rather that compared to the late 80s not that many people would find his behaviour funny, especially since it was his whole shtick that was repeated over and over again in the original series to the point of annoyance. So I think it's not a question of whether he's shown in good or bad light, but mainly how much he adds to the comedy.

@SidVicious weak argument. we deserve adaptations of stuff that have not been adapted yet, not stuff that already got quality adaptations.
@MichaelJackson We deserve? This stuff is made by the japanese for the japanese.

Seriously? Leave this shit in the past for Christ sake, these horrible products of their era are not fit for 2024 and beyond. So many garbage adaptations of garbage source material recently.
@Oppai_Loli_God Oh be quiet, but I wouldn't expect a person with a dreadful name like yours top have any redeeming takes.

You DON'T HAVE to watch it.

If it's again the same studio as Urusei Yatsura, then the chances of them animating Hokuto no Ken remake are low.
@Softhenic03 nah it's not David Productions

@iwubanime
The TV anime ends with the debut of Ranma's mother. Her manga debut is in volume 22 out of 38.

@Elior21 Oh that fucking principal is also quite annoying with how he managed the school but he's not as terrible as Happosai though. That piece of shit is way more unbearable and his whole stealing women pants shenanigans ugghh...

Yeah Kuno was horrible. But Happosai appeared in so many more episodes that he's a bigger problem. Half of the principal's appearances are in his introduction arc, after that he just appears 2-3 times every season, whereas Happosai is a constant presence while adding nothing new.

every broadcaster will do the cuts, sorry. but you can always get the blu rays 😅

wow this news has more replies (77 up to now), than any other this year! bravoo 🎉🎉
now seriously, this could be best version for Ranma if it's shorter than Urusei 2nd and includes the fucking ending... the Chinese misogyny tho 😂 let's hope they come up with a decent TV version but yeah the ova format is way better for Ranma

Wow this is certainly surprising, Urusei Yatsura must have done fairly well in order for a remake of Ranma 1/2 to be announced aswell. I hope that they actually adapt all of the manga this time, and I hope they at least try to get Hayashibara Megumi and Yamaguchi Kappei as guest characters at some point

Though with this release, I'm also thankful that they're skipping over Maison Ikkoku considering it was Takahashi Rumiko's middle release between UY and Ranma. It's an anime that while I'd personally love to have a modern adaptation done of, it also had the best manga adaptation by far of the trio of series and it suits the 80s animation, music and voice acting the best. So a modern adaptation would imo never live up to the original
