Not half !,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ranma 1/2 (vol. 4) (Paperback)
I admire and support Rumiko Takahashi whenever I can.
I particularly enjoyed The Maison Ikkouko books enormously.
Inuyasha with Kagome is utterly fantastic.
So I wanted to try some of Rumiko's earlier work and stumbled upon this Ranma 1/2 books.
This series was brought to my attention by a VIZ media re-release,in omnibus format.
That was £10 for the two volumes,whereas you can still get the originals,some for less than £1.
Obviously Post and Packing adds £2.80 but still,good value none the less.
Looked at critically,I suppose the stories can be a little repetitive but not for long as the characters
and situations change around quite a bit with romantic comedy thrown in at every delicious turn.
I don't read the books back to back so allow myself to forget and a fortnight later am chuckling away again at
everyone's antics and eating up the brilliant artwork,sometimes getting out the magnifying glass to read
the small print on incidental things like ads on lamp posts or shop signs which add to my thorough enjoyment of these books.
So,let me get this straight....,cold water turns Ranma into a girl but his...,er..,friends into animals,
warm water turns him back into a boy and the rest human again.
Yes...,it's complicated,and very amusing.Water can come from anywhere,even along the street !
P-chan is extremely funny and works on several levels,good old Takahashi,another great read.
