>>118658722 I've watched the first 2 episodes and, while it's not bad, it's not anything exceptional either. The biggest reason I'm planning to watch more is because of the nostalgic feel and old animation style.
>>118659472 >Does it get any better from on out? The series get start to get excellent around the 40 episode, and the last episodes of the Oshii run are perfect(around the 90-106), the Kazuo run is also good but already had the things Oshii decided to put in the series(better personalities for the main characters, the Lum's Stormtroppers, and other things), the last episodes of him are also really good, the best thing of both runs are the movies, with Oshii Beautiful Dreamer(one of the best animated films ever) and with Kazuo Lum Forever(weird and really different kind of film)
>>118669283 At least I was sad after I end watching the show/movies/ovas, I said to my self, I'm never gonna see more of Ataru and Lum in a long time, and that hit me really hard, I mean you really get connected with this characters.
>>118672894 >I can already tell nothing is going to ever realy change or develop on an emotional level but it is consistently fun so far that's why urusei yatsura it's also great, they actually change, mature.
>>118652955 Yes, it's worth it. Also movies 2 and 4. The shows improves quite a bit shortly after dumping the 2 stories per episode format too, since it gives more time for filler, which is actually excellent in the show.
The characters keep their archetype, but compared to something like Ranma they're fairly dynamic. Look at Shinobu, going from loving Ataru to Mendou, to wanting Mendou just for his money to not standing Mendou at all as a love interest and finally getting the bunny guy in the OVAs. That's more dynamic than anyone in Ranma 1/2.
Then you've got Mendou eventually becoming traumatized by losing to Ataru all the time in the anime, which leads to some hilarious moments that don't exist in the manga, where their rivalry is more balanced.
Lum herself goes through quite a few changes early on in the show- although, of course, that's mostly due to her going from secondary character to primary love interest, but it works well enough in the narrative, especially when some later episodes actually contrast her character like when she has a chance to stay with a perfect Ataru, but choses to go back to her universe.
>>118674852 >Most of the characters remain strict to their archetypes. They actually change, at least that's what I felt during the Oshii run and one of the problems I had in the Kazuo run, with Kazuo it seems like they are doing chapters of the manga but they don't adapt them to the current line. Ataru grown and he leaves the love of his life(shinobu) and doesn't have a problem about mendou dating her and accepts Lum in his life. Lum also realize that Ataru really like to chase women so she is not so hard with him and tolerate that at some point.
>>118676084 >repeated behavior >like perverted old man >tsundere main characters >love rival for both male and female main characters >enemy that you can't decide either serious or dumb Every fucking episodes or her series
>>118675824 >with Kazuo it seems like they are doing chapters of the manga but they don't adapt them to the current line.
I thought that really only became a problem in the OVAs and post series movies. A big thing is that the tv finale has Lum and Ataru willingly kissing for the first time, which should just negate the entire plot of the manga finale/movie 5.
>>118676563 >>118676084 Every fucking series this women has made is shit. So fucking formulaic and tired. 195 fucking episodes of bullshit. I watched all Ranma and all Inuyasha because it was on TV and I loathed every second of it.

A big thing is that the tv finale has Lum and Ataru willingly kissing for the first time, which should just negate the entire plot of the manga finale/movie 5. Yep also had that problem with the OVAs, but it's true the last episodes Kazuo run and the last of Oshii are the complete oposite of the fifth movie, Ataru really liked lum and was able to risk his life to save her and with he kiss her because he wanted.
>>118676084 I just started Ranma like two days ago. I'm on episode 30 and it's been real fun so far. There are kinda times it drags, and everyone screams a lot more than they should, but I really like the characters.
