In Team Ranma v.s. The Legendary Phoenix, poetry sprouting high school swordsman Tatewaki 'Blue Thunder' Kuno comes into possession of the egg of the legendary phoenix, said to grant its owner incredible powers. A reluctant shop keeper sells the egg to Kuno but in exchange, Kuno must just follow one rule: "never, never, in any circumstance, put the darn thing on your head." It's bad enough that boy-type Ranma accidentally puts the egg on Kuno's head, but worse is, it has imprinted in it's mind that Ranma is it's mortal enemy. Worse than that, when the phoenix begins to grow, it attacks innocent people and then the whole town! Can Team Ranma (Ranma, Akane, Shampoo, Ukyo, and Ryoga) stop the gigantic phoenix before it wreaks havoc in town?Written by
First shown in Japan at the Toei/Shogakukan Animation Festival in 1994 alongside the films Ghost Sweeper Mikami and Heisei Dog Stories: Bow. Released by Viz as part of the Ranma 1/2 OAV series due to its short running time. The domestic video release title is a parody of the 1976 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. See more »
This is basically just a half hour Ranma adventure but damn it's funny. Rumiko is going to be an anime legend. From the hilarious start to it's madcap finish this is a fun one to pick up when you feel like a light goofy anime. No sight will ever match the giant fat bird sitting on a guys head. O.K. that's not true but it is damned funny.
