Can you handle it?
Digital not worth it
First of all, Ranma 1/2 as a show gets five stars. It's a classic, and I enjoy watching it as much now as I did when I first saw it on VHS. However, the iTunes version only comes in English-dubbed format, with no option for Japanese w/ English subtitles. And yet it costs nearly the same as the Blu-Ray edition which offers both. I'm upset that iTunes does not state which language the show is in, either; I had to purchase one episode to find this out.
I never thought I'd see this show on iTunes, but I am certainly glad to see it here. Ranma 1/2 is a brilliant romantic comedy with a a lot of hilarious, entertaining, and sometimes even emotional moments. Despite it's strange set up it delivers a lot of brillaint material and great characters.
I love this anime and hope that the other seaons will be added later.
