Ranma : Set 1

 (TV) (1989)

Ranma : Set 1 Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

After taking a surprise dip in a cursed spring while on a training journey in China, martial artist Ranma Saotome and his father, Genma, aren't quite themselves anymore. Now, Ranma turns into a girl whenever he's splashed with cold water, and Genma turns into a panda! Their new forms cause nothing but confusion at the Tendo Dojo, where Soun Tendo is waiting to introduce one of his three daughters to Ranma -- as his fiance! Turns out Genma and Soun arranged the match long ago, but the girl, Akane, and the boy, Ranma, aren't exactly crazy about the idea, or each other! Or are they?

For more about Ranma : Set 1 and the Ranma : Set 1 Blu-ray release, see Ranma : Set 1 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Kappei Yamaguchi, Megumi Hayashibara, Noriko Hidaka, Sarah Strange, Venus Terzo, Richard Ian Cox

Ranma : Set 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Compared to its previously released home video counterparts, the first 3-disc set of the newly restored and remastered Ranma is an absolute revelation. Compared to other classic anime Blu-ray releases, though, it's... an absolute revelation! Apologies for failing to contain my excitement, but the series has never looked better. Moreover, I can't imagine VIZ Media's 4:3 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer will ever be bested. It's that good. No... that ideal. Colors are more vivid than ever before yet never feel cranked up or over-saturated. Contrast is spot on; consistent and vibrant, with crisp whites, strong primaries and inky black levels. And detail is impeccable. Grain is intact, the animators' line art is clean and nicely defined, and the hand-painted backgrounds showcase every brush-stroked texture purists will demand to see. Moreover, artifacting, banding, ringing and aliasing are nowhere to be found, and I didn't encounter a single significant issue worth mentioning.

Add to that the fact that the restoration team's clean-up efforts doesn't appear to have involved any debilitating noise reduction techniques, egregious sharpening or other shortsighted, on-the-cheap shortcuts. Obviously a number of remastering techniques have been employed; many of them used to normalize the grain field and remove scratches and print damage. But none of it has taken even the smallest toll on the original elements or, more importantly, altered or hindered the intentions of the series' creators and animators in any way. No, the newly revitalized image isn't going to leap off the screen, raise the dead, or convert the unconverted. The original animation is what is, at its best and at its worst, and optical softness isn't exactly uncommon in the series' 16mm source. That being said, this is Ranma as it was meant to be seen, as it was meant to be preserved, and as it was meant to be introduced to new anime fans for generations to come. I'm elated, in case you couldn't tell.


Ranma : Set 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Less remarkable although no less faithful is VIZ Media's Japanese and English DTS-HD Master Audio stereo tracks. Voices are well-prioritized and intelligible, sound effects are bright and punchy, and every sonic element has been granted new, crystal clear life. The series' music doesn't overwhelm the two-channel soundscape either, nor does it ever seem cramped or crowd. Still, the original audio elements present certain limitations, and tininess, hollow lines of dialogue, slight hiss and other inherent and unavoidable mishaps do creep into the mix from time to time. If you need your 1989 anime to sound as if it were produced in 2014, though, you're doomed to be disappointed no matter how much the lossless tracks accomplish. Those with appropriate expectations will be most pleased.
