Well. I'm a big fan of Rumiko Takahashi work, and I love Ranma 1/2.
i also like art and i so have some if you want to see its at:
I also have a lot of ranma 1/2 and other images featuring rumiko takahashi characters on my tumblr account, *i have over 1000 posts now.
tumblr, below is also the link to the archive because sometimes its just easier to view it that way.
Reading fanfiction, I like to stay true to Takahashi's chosen couples, so if its not a cannon couple, I will not read it. Sometimes if I'm not sure I read the authors profile so see if I can determine whether this fanfic is for me or not.
was my first real love; and my favorite anime/manga pairing of all time is
Ranma and Akane.
Inuyasha and Kagome (They are best suited, but I also like Kikyo)
: Kagome really is Kikyo's reincarnate, I think personality differences come from experiences. I think Kagome is what Kikyo would have been if she grew up the same way Kagome did, as a normal girl and vise versa, so I don't hate either. Basically Kagome still has potential to turn in to Kikyo of she was exposed to and had the same responsibilities as Kikyo, but you can never undo the pain that has been done, so the Kikyo now, tainted with pain and being forced to take large responsibilities, nver livin as a normal girl could never become Kagome. It's be like goin backwards.
- There are some other characters I don't like, even so, I think bashing a character takes away from a stories quality, esp. if there's no purpose other for the characters situations than to, well bash them, but if the character is made evil to serve a purpose in the story, in won't bother me. I've read some fanfics by the same author where in one story the character might be a good guy, and the bad guy in another, not because the author felt any real animosity for the character, but because they needed them to serve a purpose, and that I can totally respect.
Dislikes in Ranma 1/2 Fanfics
- Fanfics with Ranma stuck in girl form forever. Akane is a lesbian and Ranma stay a girl, blah blah. I don't mind works with Akane loving Ranma nomatter what form he's in, but I rather prefered form be male and female Ranma just growin on her.
- Can't stand Ranma actin too girly, or even works where he thinks he's a girl and starts developing a crush on a boy, no way. Plus that episode "Am I Pretty?" didn't even happen in the manga, I don't think the inner women was part of takahashi's design. Apparently the only reason Ranma was given the curse was because She was nervous about making a series with a lead male since most her readers were male at the time and all her other works before had female leads.
When reviewing, even if the work was senseless, I want to respect it. I try to put a little good with the bad, or at least ask why they wrote it that way. I hate it when People pair Ranma or Akane with someone else, but if I start reading and realize it, I try to just respectfully give a few word of encouragement, say this fic just ain't for me but I'm sure there will be others that will really enjoy it, it sounds like the making of a good story line, blah blah blah, I just don't feel right insultin someone and think I could leave encouraging words too.
