Rumiko Takahashi was originally going to have the characters "change" whenever they were hit or punched, but changed it to hot/cold water when she realized the characters would change every few seconds during a fight scene. See more »

Might as well go out as I am now...

If there is one good way to describe Ranma 1/2 (Nibun No Ichi), it would be absolutely HILARIOUS. The interaction between characters, and many of the characters' backgrounds are unbelievable-- There are so many odd characters in the series which you grow a liking for. It also mixes martial arts elements into, akin to Dragonball Z, except much more smoothly-animated. The combination of interesting fights with equally interesting characters makes this show one of the best, in my opinion.
