Ranma ½, Maison Ikkoku Recommendations
both are funny and romantic. Ranma is more funny then romantic and Maison Ikkoku is more romantic then funny. both are created by Rumiko Takahashi and both are enjoyable.
Both of these series are created by Rumiko Takahashi. The animations style and character design are very similar. Ranma is based more on martial arts while Masion Ikkoku has more to do with day to day life. Both series share the same kind of humor and odd family/friend relationships.
In relation to this anime its made by the same wonderful creator Rumiko Takashi so you will notice a similar drawing style and maybe a few familiar scenes. The difference is mostly in Maison Ikkoku has a lot more romantic developments than pitted rivalry's. One of the things i felt could have been more explored in Ranma was the romantic aspects of the show and when i found out that Maison Ikkoku existed i was instantly curious and after watching only 5 episodes i knew this is just what i wanted. It is nowhere near as long as Ranma so do not be intimidated to
