Celebrating 20+ Years of Anime Part 3: Ranma 1/2

Celebrating 20+ Years of Anime Part 3: Ranma 1/2: Originally released on VHS in 94(!)

In ’99, I was looking at a comic store in search of things that would suit my fancy. I picked this show, and for the most part, was not disappointed. A curse causes a Martial Artist to change from guy to girl when splashed with cold water. Lots of other people get cursed into different beings, as well. The basis for most of the series is fighting, though. ….And the love Polygon that happens with most of the younger characters. This anime pretty much put Viz Media on the map years ago.

Note. This series has nudity in it. Not in a sexual way, for the most part, but its there. Japanese culture is way different than ours.

Continuing on a series I need to continue:

Celebrating 20 Years of Anime Part 2: Neon Genesis Evangelion (Originally released on VHS: Aug. 97)

In Early ’99, I went from watching only one series(Sailor Moon, Series #1) to trying new shows. I was in the military at the time, and one of the members shown me an anime which got me hooked. Even though the main character is a wimp(That’s saying it mildly), the show wowed me at the time. Now, it wouldn’t make the top ten list now, but it connected me to more shows, so it would be a likely gateway anime series.
