Anyone here remember Ranma 1/2 ? It was the wacky tale of a young man who had the ability to transform into a woman should he come into contact with cold water. You can bet this leads to all sorts of insanity throughout the series. Viz Media is giving this classic series a re-release on Blu Ray soon. Check below for more details.
VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), a premiere company in the field of publishing, animation distribution, and global entertainment licensing, announces the release of new Blu-ray Standard Editions for all 7 RANMA ½ home media sets.
The RANMA ½ Blu-ray sets, which present the complete 161-episode series, are available now and sold individually with an MSRP of $49.99 U.S. / $57.99 CAN. Each set features 23 episodes across 3 discs, along with a variety of bonus material. Extras include convention highlights and RANMA ½ panel discussions, episode previews, series trailers, and a special 7-part “We Love Ranma” series that takes audiences behind the scenes, detailing the processes of the manga and anime release and the enduring popularity of this iconic action adventure series.
RANMA ½ Blu-ray episodes are presented in full 1080p High Definition resolution with the series’ original, un-cropped 4:3 aspect ratio. Subtitled and English dubbed dialogue options are available for all episodes.
In the classic RANMA ½ anime series, Ranma Saotome never thought a martial arts training mission to China would turn out like this! An accidental dunk in a cursed spring changes boy Ranma into a young girl, every time he is splashed with cold water. Hot water reverses the effect – but only until next time!
“RANMA ½ is one of anime’s most beloved series and we have been very gratified to see how the story and characters continue to resonate with multiple generations of fans,” says Charlene Ingram, Senior Marketing Manager, Animation. “Our original run of Limited Edition Blu-ray sets sold out quickly, but we are pleased to make the legendary series available once again across 7 new Standard Edition Blu-ray editions that contain the exact same episode content and bonus features included in the earlier sets. We invite fans to add this epic series to their personal collections.”
