Old school Anime

I currently ran into an awesome old school anime called Ranma 1/2. Its the funniest anime I have seen so far. I love the stories that is shown and I like the whole idea of a boy who is engaged to a girl by parental means who has the curse to turn into a girl when introduced to cold water. Comedy ensues in every episode. Its a cool martial arts anime, the fighting style used in this anime reminds me of Dragonball. What do you guys think?

Re: Old school Anime

Could I find it on youtube? Sounds cool.

EDIT- I watched episode 2 on youtube. REALLY oldschool. I liked it though. But it didn't drag me in like Naruto does.

Its a genre made in a different era attracting different types of people. Its either a hit or a miss nowadays, I personally like a lot but I wouldn't compare it to anime of today.

Re: Old school Anime

The only other anime I would compare it to would be Yu-gi-oh. It entertains me far less than this did tho.

Re: Old school Anime

I've got a dubbed movie of Ranma 1/2 that I bought a loooong time ago, and a random video of some of the later episodes.

Its one of those animes that I always plan to watch, but just haven't. But I also like the concept, and I know it has major love... hexagons.. o.o And although I've never seen much of the series, when I was younger I would search for Sailor Moon and Ranma 1/2 crossover fanfiction.... yep. That was me.

I always liked Ranma and Ryouga (or Ryoga, I've seen it both ways), they are the two who are most prominent in the episodes I've watched. Ukyo is very pretty too, but I don't know much about her character.

One day I'll watch it. lol

Like you and I they must have some temper

And I am dreaming of them on the plains
Dirtying up their beds
Watching for some sign of rain to cool their hot heads

And how dare that you send me that card when I'm doing all that I can do
You are forcing me to remember when all I want is to just forget you

If the tiger shall protect her young then tell me how did you slip by
All my instincts have failed me for once
I must have somehow slept the whole night

And I am dreaming of them with their kill
Tearing it all apart
Blood dripping from their lips and teeth sinking into heart

And how dare that you say you'll call
When you know I need some peace of mind
If you have to take sides with the animals
Won't you do it with one who is kind

And if the hawks in the trees need the dead
If you're living you don't stand a chance
For a time though you share the same bed
There are only two ends to this dance

You can flee with your wounds just in time or lie there as he feeds
Watching yourself ripped to shreds and laughing as you bleed

So for those of you falling in love keep it kind
Keep it good
Keep it right
Throw yourself in the midst of danger but keep one eye open at night

Re: Old school Anime

You really need to look at the creators other works if you love Ranma. I got into Ranma a few years back, and loved it. It's a nice change from Bleach and Naruto for variety on top of randomness. Most episodes don't tie in to each other, so you get that self-contained completeness of say Family Guy or Futurama.

IF you love Ranma, Rumiko Takashi's masterpiece, Maison Ikkoku, will float your boat. It's more of a romantic comedy that is more story driven and serious, but retains some of the comedic and sexy moments. Infact, Inuyasha IMO sucks in comparison to this anime even though MI is older than I am (and the characters' ages are similar to my parents in the years it represents).

Neon Genesis Evangelion is a bit newer, but still here before anime was mainstream in America.

I almost forgot, since Ranma was done in the old style of animation, I bought a rather expensive cel of Ranma and Akane (the costs triple on ebay with a hand-painted cel of Ranma and Akane as the series is about their relationship). Its a one of a kind item for one of my favorite animes. It even came with a sketch of the Ranma part of it signed by the animator (unfortuneatly not Takashi).

Crap...now I gotta download somemore Ranma...

Re: Old school Anime

I am still watching this show. Its taking me longer than I thought to finish all 161 episodes and I haven't even started the movies or OVA's yet. That's what happens when you have a full time job. lol

Another old anime is Cyborg 009. From the looks of it it seems like there has been several remakes since the original came out which was way be in the early 70's late 60's-ish. The one I am looking for is the latest one they made which was, at one point, shown in Cartoon Network. Its was a real kick ass anime and the storyline was reaching its climax when they canceled it. I was pissed so now I am searching for it but its hard as hell to find. But anywho, anime about couple of teenagers that were found by some secret organization and got their bodies rebuilt and turned into cyborgs with incredible powers using them to take revenge on the same people that turned them into cyborgs.
