A MUST watch for Ranma fans
15 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story "An Akane to Remember" is also called "Reawaken Memories". It is a 2 part story, and one of the best animations of the series. It is also one of the best stories of the series. As I have written comments for other OAV's, this one is one of the top 3 of the entire franchise.

It gives Akane real depth, rather than the "damsel-in-distress" type of story. As well as finally gives her a TRUE love triangle...not just comedy out of Ryoga or Kuno. Even if it's just for 2 episodes, her affection for Shinnosuke is genuine, (due to what had happened in the flashback part of the story). This is also the first time in which Akane takes it on herself to take a journey on her own trying to discover her lost memories of what happened to her as a child.

I am trying not to give away anything. But the scene of Ranma questioning Akane about her feelings for him, and then challenging Shinnosuke over her is one of the few instances in the franchise where he truly, & "publically", announces his feelings for Akane, sort of.

The final scenes really push Akane's character to what she is in most of the Manga, a capable "fearless" martial artist. Which is probably another reason why I enjoyed this one. Another positive is the location. It is a rare instance where the location is outside of Japan/Furinkan. Which makes the story fresh.

This OAV does get emotional, and it also pushes Ranma's emotions to there limits. Quite simply this episode helps to define the characters of Ranma and Akane. This one, "The Two Akane's" story, and the finale of the Manga are the stories that REALLY push both main characters to their emotional edges.

If you enjoyed "The Two Akane's" story, you will love this one! Highly Recommended!!
