Ranma ½ Season 4 “Outta Control” (1990-1991)
“Outta Control” (1990-1991)
Ranma hit manhood this season lol. Or maybe they just changed the voice actor. To be honest I like the original voice better (even though it was a girl). The new voice is that Inuyashas, just because this series is from the same creator doesn’t mean they should use the same english voice actor for the main character. I don’t know I like the guys voice but it just doesn’t seem like Ranma’s voice, you know what I mean?. It is funny how quick you get used to it though.
Anyways I really like this season if you haven’t noticed by now I’m writing a lot of the LOVE/CUTE parts this is basically for my reference. Plus to be honest its the only parts I really like. Anyways Ranma although trying to disguise his feelings as much as he can still hints that he prefers Akane more then any other fiancée. Even though they argue and fight. He vows to protect her but only when she really needs it. Also when his so called mother comes he’s really reluctant to leave the house or maybe he doesn’t want to leave Akane side. When he turns weak he can’t stand that Akane sees him like that, he’s her protector how is he suppose to protect her if he’s weak.
Akane and Ranma have been spending ample amounts of time around each other this season. They are usually around each other and if Ranma wants to hang out he always asks Akane first. Many times Akane almost looses Ranma she may hid it but she doesn’t want him to go even the Ghoul realizes it in the last episode. Akane is a little stubborn but I like her. Akane is the only one that can change him back to his normal self when he turns Cat-fist. I believe Ranma is becoming more content in his position to inherit the Dojo and become Akanes husband -because of their father but he does have feelings for her.
There’s a lot of character development with the other characters as well. Ryoga is as sweet as ever protecting Akane’s honor when Ranma’s a douche bag and the sisters lives start coming into play as well.
Episode 65: “The Return of the Hawaiian Headmaster from Hell” -The return of the new principal. He wants to cut off Ranma braid and he uses Akane to bribe him into cutting it off. Ranma saves her and the goal now is to find a coconut with a get out of rules pass. The principal is insane.
Episode 66: “Enter Kuno, the Night-Prowling Knight” -Tatewaki helps out the principal and wants to fight Ranma. Ranma wins and Tatewaki asks Hopposai to train him. He gets really good and Ranma has trouble beating him but in the end he does.
♥ Episode 67: “Ranma Gets Weak!” -Ranma ticks off Hopposai and he uses a pressure point on Ranma to turn him weak. Next day at school Tatewaki comes after him and defeats Ranma. Ranma is so mad he just punches randomly and hits a little kid. Ranma thinks he hurt the kid, but instead he just asks Ranma if he’s ok and goes on his merry way. lol They go to Dr. Tofu in hopes that he can find a cure. His enemies hear about his weakened state and they try to defeat him -Ryoga saves him. There is a cure and Hopposai has it but Ranma can’t get it Ranma so upset the next day he’s gone with Genma. Akane misses him starts seeing him everywhere.
♥♥ Episode 68: “Eureka! The Desperate Move of Desperation” -Ukyo has gone missing as well, she is with Ranma and Genma. They all go to this therapeutic hot rock area to help cure Ranma -it didn’t work. The ghoul hears about Granma’s condition and goes to help-teaching him a new technique that does not require strength. Akane finds Ranma while he’s training. To use the teqnique he must remain calm cold as ice Genma’s takes out pictures of a littler naked Ranma wetting the bed, him naked and scared of cats and Genma yelling out what he said in his sleep “Akane make me your love slave, Akane I love you!” LoL. Ranma eventually masters his embarrassment but the second part will be harder. Akane and Ukyo are useless to him now they could never fight Ranma full heartedly and he couldn’t fight them back. Ryoga pops up out of nowhere and offers his help but it fails. Akane tries to help but catches her shirt on fire. Ranma gives her his shirt and He tells her to go home -he didn’t want her here from the start. She feels useless and runs away -Ranma chases her. He tells her that he couldn’t stand her -out of all people -seeing him so weak and pathetic –moment. Ryoga sees Akane crying and wearing Ranma’s shirt. He gets mad and really takes it out on Ranma and Ranma learns how to do the technique.
♥♥Episode 69: “Showdown! Can Ranma Make a Comeback?” -Ranma and the others go back home. He does the new move on Hopposai but Akane somehow gets caught in the tornado like move. She has the chart with the cure for Granma’s condition-Hopposai dropped it. Akane tries to give the chart to Ranma but she passes out the chart gets ripped into pieces. Ranma can’t believe Akane did that for him and gives up about changing back. He makes it to Akane and she’s safe in his arms -he knows its not over until she is safe.-cute. They are safe on the ground and Ranma decides to leave, he’s going to miss everyone especially Akane. Akane regains contiousnus and follows him. She wants to come with him. He looks at her as he struggles picking up his pack and says it will never work a girl has no business on a training journey. She’s not coming for training but to carry his luggage. He starts crying in a corner and Akane tries to cheer him up saying that its ok for him to be weak. Ranma says with out his strength what else is left. Akane tries to tell him his good qualities but cant think of anything. The ghoul and his friends collected the pieces of paper and she fixes his strength. He starts yelling “Akane I’m cured”.

Later that night Akane tells Ranma that it’s only natural that his mother would want him back and only natural to go live with her. He knows that but Akane wants him to go talk to her. He asks if that’s what she wants, does she want him to leave?-cute. She tells him it’s because his mother hasn’t seen him in a long time. Ranma gets mad and tells her he reads what she’s saying and an un-cute girl wouldn’t care and they argue. Akane tells him to go do what he wants. Later that night Akane can’t sleep so she goes to the dojo to practice. She sees Ranma practicing too.. everything’s been getting to him.
