Ranma ½, Dragon Ball Recommendations
Both were long ongoing 80s martial arts comedy anime. The atmosphere and feel is generally the same with a recurring Chinese theme and animal characters. Ranma has more romance and fanservice in it and Dragon Ball changes to a more serious mood later on.
Both are funny, quirky and unique 80's shonen anime with great art, intriguing and goofy characters, martial arts and the like.
Classic over-exaggerated anime based on Chinese martial arts and wacky comedy with a very weird love story attached
Differences: Ranma is a love story set in modern Japan, Dragon Ball is an adventure story set in a sci-fi fantasy world
