I’m doing two review in one. The 2007 Hana Kimi I own but I havent watched it in years. I just recently watched the 2011 version.
The story- A girl named Ashiya Mizuki comes from the states disguised as boy and enters at an all boys school. She enters to encourage her Idol Sano Izumi to start high jumping again after his injury. She befriends everyone in the school, but the dorms Doctor discovers that she is a girl he keeps it a secret for her. Another boy named Nakatsu Shuichi starts having feelings for her and thinks he is gay.

Hana Kimi 2007 – I like this version better, I actually own it. It’s not like it was great but I really liked the manga and this was the only other version at the time that I liked before the Korean one came out. Still my favorite character is Nakatsu in al the versions hes my favorite.

Hana Kimi 2011- No good at all, but yet I still liked it. They used the same music as the 2007 one. It looks old and done in the same fashion as the 2007 one. They basically have the same story but the school is closing down. Why they would want to except a new student 3 months before the school ends just baffles me. Oh there’s so many flaws like why they didn’t try to petition to get the school saved sooner and why the head dorm leader didn’t do that thing where they change into the costumes and talk to the school board at the beginning. Oh and the best part is the dance sequence and song at the end for Ashiya Mizuki to show how much they appreciate her during the finally closing ceremony. And some how it just magical changes the head leaders mind (who i think has been doped up on opium) it was terrible….and i still kinda liked it. Maybe its just cause of Nakatsu I love that character.
Anyways watch it if you must. The 2007 version i give a 5/10 the 2011 version I give a 2/10

I watched this about a year ago and forgot to write my thoughts about it. I still remember it so I don’t have to re-watch it.
The story starts off with Aihara Kotoko running into Irie Naoki, and accidently kissing him on his lips. From that moment on Kotoko started to like him /love him. On his end he felt disgusted at first and didn’t care about it afterwards. But when Kotoko’s house burns down Aihara Shigeo her father and herself move in with the fathers close friend Irie Machiko and Irie Yuki. You’ve probably guessed already that Irie Noaki is actually their son. So they all live together. Kotoko wants to do whatever she can to change his mind about her and slowly through the 9 episodes she succeeds.
Um for 9 episodes I suppose its worth a watch. Its not like you have to dedicate a lot of your time to watch it, but that doesn’t mean that I thought it was good by any means. We have to remember that this is 1996 so its not as great as the new stuff and since I have no other dramas I can compare it to from 1996. Its kind of on a league of its own. Regardless of the time period or the shortness of episodes, all the other versions of watched (never read the manga) I hated. I don’t like the girl, I don’t like the guy I don’t like how he treats her. I don’t like how she can’t get over him. I hate everyone except for her friend that interested in her. Just the whole series all of them, I really hate them all. BOOO
anyways for what it is I give it 3/10 for entertainment value .5/5 on the awwness scale.. BOO.
Love Ranma fricken Love Ranma. Even though this isn’t the best season I still love it. I know this took me a while to update I was super busy. I still am super busy, but I’m on holiday so I have ample amounts of time to waste YAY. Plus I kinda rewatched Avatar, cause I love it and lots and lots of period dramas, and I read a ton of books.

Well I think Season 6 is my favorite. It probably wont be everyones favorite I just like it cause there are so many cute episodes. The only thing I have to complain about is ….not enough Ryoga episodes.
Episode 113: “Dear Daddy… Love, Kodachi!” – Kodachi finally meets her father: Tatewaki who can’t stand his father hats that he’s taken over all his roles as head of the house hold. Tatewaki gets really angry when he realizes his father has taken over Kodachi parent teacher interview- something that he’s done up until now.

On the way home he buys the book that Akane was looking at for cooking. Gosunkugi invites Ranma and Tatewaki to the roof and he himself dresses up as Akane. He was trying to make them fight but it back fired and Gosunkugi gets hurt. In the nurses room Akane gives Gosunkugi the lunch she made for Ranma and Ranma gives him some antacid pills.
This Movies Air Date in Japan was in between Episode 118 ” Ryoga Inherits the Soatome School?” and Episode 119 “Tendo Family Goes to the Amusement Park!” Ranma’s voice goes back to little childish Ranma which is kind of confusing but lol its ok. This was pretty good I liked it. Same as usual though Akane gets kidnaped and Ranma and his friends and family go to save her nothing out of the ordinary here.
It’s just a typical day at the Tendo house hold Ranma trying to keep Happosai from taking Akane’s panties. Akane thinking Ranma is a pervert. Ranma chases Happosai Akane chases Ranma, they run into Ryoga and he gets splashed and turned into a P-Chan he starts chasing them. Ranma runs into shampoo, she starts chasing Ranma. Ranma gets turned into a girl Tatewaki sees her and starts chasing them as well. Mousse sees Shampoo running after Ranma and joins in. The boy in the mail box whose in love with Ukyo takes her store sign and follows the procession of people following Ranma their fore Ukyo follows the boy in the mail box. Azula and her partner join in as well as Kodachi and her father. Just about everyone you can think of including a big baby, the 4 bald guys, a the big ghost cat, and the Gambling king. Yup just the usual.
A huge burst of black smoke and red lightning comes up from behind them and sends everyone (the main characters Ranma, Akane, Shampoo, Mousse, Ryoga, Happosai) flying into the Tendo house. The black smoke and lightning is actually a girl and her elephant from China. Her name is Lychee and she throws a scroll at Happosai which Akane picks up. All of a sudden a boat from the sky comes and when the master of the ship sees Akane with the scroll he grabs her. His name is Kirin from the impeccable school of the 7 lucky gods martial arts. Lychee has been waiting for him to come and claim her but since he saw Akane with the scroll he has taken her instead. Ranma goes after Akane but gets defeated by Kirin and they leave.
This season wasn’t bad they had a few cute episodes. A lot of filler episodes which I hate but what can you do. Ryoga my fav is hardly in any of them. But I suppose un announced Akane and Ranma are officially dating so thats kinda good I guess. Anyway its a good season not great just feels like a continuation of the last season nothing really new happens.
Episode 89: “Gimme That Pigtail” -Four men are on the search for the dragons whisker and apparently Ranma has it. Ranma is able to fight them off but he starts acting weird after he hears that they want the Dragons whisker and Akane notices. The four men try numerous schemes to get Ranma. Ranma explains to the family that the Dragon Whisker is in his hair and if it were to come off of him something messy would happen. At school Akane wonders why Ranma wont explain further about what will happen -she wants to help him. Ranma gets caught by the four men with paralysis powder and Akane sees him, she runs to help him, but its to late they have the Dragon Whisker. Akane manages to get the whisker back but when she returns it to Ranma he screams….”DON’T LOOK AT ME” and runs away. Akane runs after Ranma into the PE storage shed and thinks she sees Ranma sitting behind a piece of equipment. Then Akane notices something moving on the floor.
Episode 90: “When a Guy’s Pride and Joy is Gone” -Ranma begs Akane not to look and to go away. Ranma tells her the story when he was in China he ate a secret hair growth formula and now his hair wont stop growing unless he ties it with the Dragon whisker. Akane is able to stop his hair growing it by quickly braiding it a re-tying it with the dragons whisker. Hopposai and Genma hear about Ranma’s balding cure and on the way home Hopposai comes after Ranma, Ranma pushes Akane out-of-the-way from the Hopposai fire burst. Genma comes and saves Ranma from Happosai’s anger, but really Genma wants the dragon whisker for himself he gets it and Ranma’s hair starts growing again. When Ranma in girl form his hair stops growing. The Ghoul comes and tells Ranma if he doesn’t get it back in a week he’s going to run out of hair and be permanently bald. Genma can’t figure out how to make the whisker work so Hopposai steals it from Genma but he can’t figure it out how to use it either. Ranma goes after Hopposai using his long locks to defeat him but after a while Ranma’s hair stops growing he thinks he’s used all his hair up in battle but it’s just the effect of the formula has now worn off.
So I had and extremely long night of Anime tonight (which was actually 3 days ago) first we watched Trigun-to be honest watched the first 11 episodes and I kind of hated it. Do you think its worth it to watch it till the end? Anyways my friend finally wanted to change shows which I thanked her kindly as the boys wanted to watch Trigun till the end -I was seriously going to crack if I had to watch another Trigun episode. We watched a movie, an Anime movie called Summer Wars. Its about a boy named Kenji Koiso who gets hired to be Natsuki Shinohara (a girl he’s crushing on) boyfriend for 4 days while visiting family for her 90 old grandma birthday party. Yes, I know your thinking not another love story, but this is where it gets interesting Kenji is a math genius and one night he gets an anonymous text with a bunch of numbers in it. He figures out the code and pattern and the next day in the news theirs a picture of him and warrant out for his arrest. He’s been wrongfully accused as a hacker to a mainstream virtual reality real life simulator as contradictory as it sounds lol. The A.I. Hacking program starts controlling things like traffic lights and gps. They find out what and who the hacker actually is. Himself and Natsuki’s family go on a virtual reality hunt for the Avatar hacker so they can save their real world when they find out the Avatar can intercept missiles and satellites.
I liked it, not my favorite but I liked it. It has its romance which as you probably know is my undoing lol. The animation was really well done loved the animation. Story line was entertaining and it had a little bit of everything for everyone, Sadness, love, family, saving the world, uniting people, death, humor, and high tech computer stuff. Maybe they should of focused on one or two main themes but they were trying to make this movie appeal to everyone and for the most part it was done well and mostly made sense to the story line. Worth a watch, watch it. Even though it wasn’t my favorite I’m giving it a 5/5 because it deserves it.
“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”. She goes to hug him but he goes on smashing things with his body rampage.
♥♥Episode 70: “Here Comes Granma’s Mom!” -Ranma’s mom comes back but Genma wont let Ranma see his mother. Hopposai tells them the heartbreaking story of Genma and Ranma’s mother.

Akane wants him to lie low. Everyone comes running up to Ranma they all think he’s going to live with his mother. Hopposai tells all of Ranma’s fiancée that his mother will pick Ranma’s bride and puts all of Ranma’s fiancée into training. 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. Ranma doesn’t want to meet his mother but Genma forces him too. We actually find out that Genma was only making a deal with the circus for Ranma and his mother had nothing to do with it.
♥ Episode 71: “From Ryoga with Love” – (Title reminds me of a James Bond title lol) Ranma and Akane’s relationship is really starting to get to Ryoga so he leaves town to think about his current situation.

Ranma says he gives up and the trainee can marry Akane and have the dojo. Akane starts shaking her head and asks Ranma to help her out.

Ranma always saves Akane out of want or subconsciously and Akane’s always worries about Ranma…the Plot is definitely thickening between their love. I also love Ryoga how he defends Akane’s honor Ryoga so sweet but so fickle.
