Anime-Akane's Good, Bad & Ugly list

Postby SpaceKnight of Chaos » Tue Dec 25, 2007 12:52 am

Here at last is the start of the GBU list for the anime's version of Akane. This is just the first season, but think of it as a Christmas present from down under- I gotta leave for about a week, so there'll be no more on this until I get back. As always, if you think a point's mark should be changed, then speak up.

Originally, I was going to count Akane's behaviour under the Xi Fa Xiang Gao for the mark, as that move left her basic personality unchanged, it simply transplanted Ranma into the role of a permanent stranger. However, seeing as how Ace left those marks out of the manga-version of Akane's GBU list, I decided to do the same- otherwise the two wouldn't properly stack against each other.

Here's Ranma
G: admonishes Nabiki for continuing to insult their guest and squeeze her chest.
G: asks the strange girl if she'd like to be friends.
G: reassures her that she won't hurt her while they spar.
B: loses her temper when she can't hit the girl and she won't strike back, leading to her launching a punch that could have seriously injured her (it smashes a hole in the wall) had it landed and thus trying to break her promise.
G: compliments Ranma-chan on her skill and bears no grudge against her for being the winner.
B: declares that she's glad Ranma is a girl and that she would have hated to have lost to a guy.
E: decides to share a bath when she finds out Ranma is already in the bath.
- it is the custom there, after all.
B: ignores the "Knock First" sign hanging out and goes straight in.
U: when she discovers Ranma is a man, casts aside the offer of friendship she had offered previously and declares him a pervert.
U: hypocritically decrees that, though she was the one who walked in on him, the fact she is a girl makes her exempt from fault.
B: insults him and starts arguing with him.
U: when Ranma responds to her taunts, which she started, with one of her own, she grabs the table and smashes her from behind and whilst unaware with it.
U: when a genuinely contrite Ranma-chan enters the bath without knowing she was there, goes against her own previously statement about girls being blameless when they look at somebody nude and slaps her. Declares this was just when Nabiki talks about it afterwards.

School is No Place for Horsing Around
G: admits that Ranma is good at martial arts.
G: takes Ranma to Dr. Tofu's clinic to get some hot water.
E/B: slams Ranma's fingers in the door and forgets about her when she sees Tofu.
G: tries to go to past Kuno without fighting him.
G/B: warns Ranma not to get in the way or else he'll get hurt.
- here, she simultaneously displays concern for Ranma's well being and insults him, having evidently forgotten his previous displays and thus dubbing him incapable of fighting at her level.
B: throws Ranma's bag at him while he's in the middle of a fight against an opponent who could be lethal if given the chance.
E: points out that Ranma has a bruise on his neck from the wind pressure of Kuno's sword thrust.
E/B: blames Ranma when the two get sent out into the hall for being late.
G: concerned for Ranma's wellbeing when he jumps out of a third floor window.
G: worried when he doesn't surface in the pool.

A Sudden Storm of Love
G: gets a kettle of hot water and goes looking for Ranma.
E/B: mocks Ranma's intellect/lack of forethought for failing to check that he was near the pool before jumping from the window.
E/B: teases him with the possibility of not giving him the kettle.
G: gives him the kettle and goes to delay Kuno.
- even if she did throw it so that he barely managed to catch it, she was still working on good intentions.
E: gets irritated when Kuno makes his usual narcissist declaration.
G: mentions it isn't even lunchtime when Ranma decides to leave school.
U: that night, insults Ranma to Nabiki for his curse, something he is clearly sensitive about and which he has no control over.
B: when Ranma offers his help with beating the Hentai Horde, refuses by declaring that they are strangers to each other.
B: proclaims her hatred of the ritual, despite having just refused Ranma's offer to help her with it.
G/B: suggests Ranma not answer Kuno's apparent challenge.
- while she is motivated by concern, Ranma takes martial arts very seriously and refusing to accept a challenge is against his morals.

Ranma and... Ranma? If It's Not One Thing, It's Another
B: insults Ranma's looks.
B: blames Ranma for the two of them being late when she is the one who brought them to a halt by starting their latest argument.
B: upset with Ranma for helping in that morning's fight.
G: concerned when Kuno lands a hit on the distracted Ranma.
G/B: warns Ranma about Kuno being even more dangerous when upset.
- another simultaneous display of concern and dismissal.
B: kicks Ranma back towards Kuno, a martial artist whose skill she has emphasised on several occasions, when Ranma idly mentions that her panties don't suit her.
- while a hit or something was justifiable here, throwing him back in a comparatively vulnerable position towards an opponent is over the line.
G: warns Ranma of Kuno's impending strike.
G: worried about Ranma's own health when the fight is over.
B: accuses Ranma of being the one to take the photos of her he reveals to her, despite the fact she saw Nabiki take them this morning.
E: hits him with Kuno's bokken for insulting her figure.

Love me to the Bone! The Compound Fracture of Akane's Heart
U: in the middle of a spar with her father, lets her temper take over her courtesy of memories of Ranma's latest insult and promptly KOs him.
- I won't go the pedantic route of pointing out how lucky she was that her target in this case had some martial arts training and was thus capable of taking a beating. What gets my goat here is the fact that, as even an absolute martial arts nitwit like me knows, focus and clear-headedness are everything in martial arts, and Akane has just demonstrated the complete opposite.
B: reluctant to agree to make her promise to Kasumi.
G: despite Ranma's provocation, manages to remember her promise and refrains from striking him.
B: utterly mangles Ranma when he finally crosses the line.
- here, the mark isn't for striking him. A saint probably wouldn't have been able to refrain from doing so given the insult he gave (a definite Ugly moment for Ranma). This mark is for going beyond the acceptable limit.
G: takes him to Dr. Tofu's afterwards.
U: when Ranma reveals that it was a "tomboy girl" who did this to him, tips the still-injured boy from his bed.
G: doesn't react to Ranma's provocation on the way home.
G: concerned when his legs suddenly give out.
G: offers to give him a piggyback home.
B: when Ranma refuses because of pride, doesn't even ask his opinion of the idea before activating his curse.
G: carries her home.
E: upset with Ranma going around female and topless and asks if she has any feminine modesty.
- the latter is either a rhetorical question or just plain stupid. Maybe both.
B: picks a fight at breakfast afterwards.
B: when Ranma mentions her infatuation with Tofu, promptly drags him away from the table and to school, not even letting him grab lunch.
B: unthinkingly pulls open Ranma-chan's blouse when they reach school and she realises that he's changed.
B: dubs Ranma a real pervert when one student mentions that Kuno was Furinkan's greatest champion and is still its greatest pervert.
U: deliberately encourages Kuno's infatuation with "the pig-tailed girl" by stating her willingness to step aside so that he can woo her.
G: apologises to Ranma for hitting him accidentally with a baseball.
G: takes him to Tofu's to get it checked.
G: offers to make Tofu some tea.
E: distracts Tofu so that Ranma doesn't tell him about the accident.
G: answers the phone when Genma-as-panda proves unable to do so.
E: snaps at Ranma when he dubs the old lady who just came in as being the girl Tofu is interested in.
E: doesn't want to say who Tofu's infatuation is.

Akane's Lost Love... These Things Happen, You Know
E: gets angry with Ranma when he mentions that even the stuff she uses to hit people has her name on it.
B: despite having previously described it as an accident, blames Ranma getting hit as his own fault.
B: refers to Ranma as being a pervert when he teases her in response, even asking Tofu to confirm her declaration.
G: tells Kasumi that Tofu is completely different when she isn't around, thus giving her the first (and only) clue that the oblivious Tendo girl will receive as to Tofu's infatuation with her.
E: drives Ranma into the dirt when he makes a stupid face at her while she's dealing with her own emotional hurts.
G: in doing so fixes the damage Tofu did to his neck.
E/B: upset when he deems her being angry as being back to normal.
- on one hand, this is pretty insulting, on the other she hasn't exactly shown him much else.
G: cheers up when she realises that, in his own crude way, Ranma is concerned about her.
G: treats Ranma to lunch.
G: explains what's bugging her.
G: doesn't react with immediate violence when Ranma blurts out about her being broken-hearted and goes home quietly.
E/B: punches him out of the window for spying on her, retwisting his neck in the process.

Enter Ryoga! The Eternal "Lost Boy"
E: unhappy that her sisters want to dress Ranma in her clothes.
G: but allows them to do so anyway.
U: attempts to thrash Ranma with a shinai when she points out the chest is too tight and the waist is too baggy.
- girls have different builds, and Ranma -especially by his standards at this time- was being extremely polite and civil.
G: warns Ranma of Ryoga's oncoming assault when the former seems distracted.
G: impressed by Ranma's show of nerve when he halts Ryoga in mid-strike, not having moved an inch.
E: disbelieving when Ranma tries to settle the score by giving Ryoga bread.
E: exasperated when she finds out how Ranma proved this fight to start with.

School is a Battlefield! Ranma vs. Ryoga
G: points out that the arranged time for the challenge is already come.
G: tells Ranma that Ryoga has finally made it to Furinkan.
G: worried for Ranma's safety after finding out how strong Ryoga is.
G/B: goes for hot water, unthinkingly exposing herself to the bandannas Ryoga is flinging around.
E: gets into an argument after the latter saves her.
B: fights with Ranma when she tries to save her, then slaps her after she says that she isn't holding Akane because she wants to. Finally, pauses in her storming off to tell Ranma that she wants nothing to do with her from now on.

True Confessions! A Girl's Hair is Her Life!
E: rendered catatonic by the damage done to her hair.
E: accepts Ranma & Ryoga's offer and hits them.
B: accuses Ranma of trying to catch her crying and throws her weights at the boy-turned-girl.
G: tells Kasumi not to overreact when her elder sister first sees Akane’s new haircut.
G: tells her that Akane cut her hair on her own and asks her to trim the edges.
G: tells Ranma that he’s off the hook when he apologises to her, and tells him that she was going to cut it anyway.
G: asks what’s wrong with Ranma when he goes silent after hearing this.
G: has accepted that her crush was just that; a pointless crush that would never have worked, and decrees she has gotten over it.
E: asks if Ranma is feeling alright when he compliments her.
G: thanks him for his attempts to cheer her up and compliments him.
E: in a friendly prank, gently pokes him off the fence into the canal, getting Ranma wet but not doing anything hurtful.
G/E: tells Ranma that they’re even now.
G: nonchalantly shrugs off Ranma-chan’s angry verbal barbs.
G: goes to take care of the apparent intruder when she gets woken up.
E: throws a barbell at Ryoga after some prompting by Kasumi.
E: defends herself when something attacks her in her bedroom.
G: when that something turns out to be a strange piglet, tries to calm it down and sweet talk it, treating it with tenderness.
E: asks where Ranma found the strange dog she has in the living room.
G: takes care of the pig’s injuries.

P-P-P-Chan! He's Good For Nothin'
G: chastises Ranma-chan for chasing the piglet…
U: …then, after seeing said pig attack her despite the fact it had a clear route to flee by, reacts to her defending herself by wrenching on her breast.
- as anyone who knows anything about women can tell you, something like this *hurts*. Considering the fact that the pig attacked her first, and that when she first found it the thing attacked her, this is going way over the line.
E/B: more concerned with the pig than Ranma, cooing over it and kissing it on the snout.
E: slaps Ranma when he falls face-first onto her bed in the middle of the night, waking her up…
B: …then commences thrashing him mercilessly with a shinai, refusing to even listen to his attempts to explain things, before throwing him out of the window.
B: refuses to ask why Ranma keeps calling the pig “Ryoga”.
B: hits him in the back of the head with a baseball bat, having stumbled onto Ranma challenging Ryoga just as the sprays activated and turned him into a pig.
B: refuses to listen to Ranma’s attempt to explain the truth about her pig being Ryoga in a cursed form, prompting Ranma to deem it not worth the bother of trying.
E: worried for P-chan when he disappears and searches all over town for him.
E: refuses to let the servants of the old rich couple take P-chan back to them.
G: concerned for Ranma when the three servants turn out to be a bit tougher than he had anticipated.
G: grabs hold of the final servant’s bo when he sticks it through the gate, holding him in place long enough for Ranma to deliver the finishing strikes.
E/B: claims she was only doing it for P-chan’s sake when Ranma sincerely thanks her afterwards.
E/B: awake and waiting for Ranma when he tries to sneak into her room one last time to retrieve P-chan, promptly thrashing him viciously again.

Ranma Meets Love Head-On! Enter the Delinquent Juvenile Gymnast!
G: agrees to the Furinkan Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics team’s plea for her to substitute for them…
B: …despite the fact she doesn’t know the first thing about the style, has never practised it before and has no way of finding a suitable teacher.
- as Acey said in the manga version, the fact that Ryoga turns out to know the style is a happy bit of coincidence/good luck. If it weren’t for that, Akane would be up crap creek without a paddle.
G: promises to avenge them for their humiliation and suffering.
B: when Ranma punches P-chan for latching his jaws onto Ranma’s wrist, a fact that Akane can see, without being provoked, Akane clubs him over the head and tells him not to pick on the pig.
E/B: gets angry when Ranma points out her lack of skill at the style, eventually throwing a full-blown temper tantrum in the middle of the dojo.
G: admits that she’s bad at the style and klutzy.
G: grateful to Ryoga when he offers to teach her.
G: trains hard and thanks Ryoga for his training.
B: gets mad at Ranma when he points out that Ryoga is lying through his teeth, as Akane hasn’t improved in the ribbon at all.
E: regrets having decided to be the substitute for Furinkan.
G: manages to fight off Kodachi, even despite the Kuno girl’s sneak attacks.
E: vows to give Kodachi the same treatment when they fight next week after the Black Rose of Hebereke leaves.
E: gets angry at the fact Ranma completely ignored her plight.
G: saves an obviously paralysed Ranma from getting kissed by Kodachi…
B: …then abandons him on the roof, leaving him there to freeze all night.

A Woman's Love is War! The Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics Challenge!
E: gets angry when Ranma points out that she can’t even use the tools on which she’ll depend in the contest.
E: is angry with Kodachi when she attacks her again, then throws her over to Ranma.
B: calls Ranma pathetic when he tries to ward off Kodachi’s interest by telling her that he and Akane are engaged.
G: admits, albeit reluctantly, that Ranma is her fiancé when asked.
G: calls Kodachi crazy when she first suggests making Ranma the stakes for the fight…
E: …but accepts the terms anyway.
B: when Ranma offers to help her practise, her idea of practise is apparently to attack him while he’s watching her and then grow angry when he escapes by clinging to the roof.
B: when P-chan latches onto Ranma’s finger and Ranma promptly dumps him on the floor, kicks him in the throat/underside of the jaw and tells him not to pick on him.
B: in a display of extreme stupidity, fails to remain aware of her surroundings and injures herself by tripping on the ball she left on the floor.
G/B: refuses to let her injury stop her from competing.
E: decides to use Ranma as a substitute.
G: compliments how good Ranma is, considering she hasn’t actually practised MARG before.
G: willing to stay up and watch Ranma & Ryoga train.
E/B: upset to find out Ranma & Ryoga were fighting all night.
- really, she should have anticipated something like this.
G: saves Ranma from Kodachi’s sneakiness with thumbtacks between her fingers.
G: again, saves Ranma from Kodachi’s sleeping gas bomb.
G: warns Ranma that using her real name mightn’t be the best idea.
G: realises Kodachi is going to pull another dirty trick and tries to warn Ranma.

A Tear in a Girl-Delinquent's Eye? The End of the Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics Challenge!
G: tries to get Kodachi fouled for using a steel rod.
G: and again when she deploys spiked clubs.
G: gets upset when the ref pre-empts her complaint about the razor hoop.
G: throws Ranma some clubs.
G: throws her a ball to counteract Kodachi’s Attack of 1000 Clubs.
G: scared for Ranma when Kodachi snags Genma’s kettle of hot water.
G: grabs a cold water hose and manages to save Ranma with it before the steam clears.
E: almost pushes Ranma out of the ring with the force of the hose.
E: gets upset when a half-naked Ranma barges into her room while she’s undressing and promptly slaps him for it.

Pelvic Fortune-Telling? Ranma is the No. One Bride in Japan
G: doesn’t get angry when Ranma teases her about her former crush on Ryoga.
E: elbows Ranma in the gut for his insult.
- I consider this one quite reasonable; Kasumi probably would have gotten violent if compared unfavourably to Kin Ono’s “number 1 bridal candidate”.
G: tries to stop Tofu’s crazy mom Kin from hanging herself…
E: …by revealing Tofu is already infatuated with a girl.
G: recognizes that Nabiki has a scheme cooking and warns her not to do it, ignoring her attempts to deflect her.
G/B: tells Kin that she is Tofu’s love interest.
E: throws Ranma cross the dojo when he badly insults her.
B: dubs Ranma-chan a lunatic when she gets involved in the contest in an attempt to keep Akane from ending up as Tofu’s wife, with only Nabiki’s efforts at restraining her keeping Akane from braining Ranma-chan with the pedestal Kin had her and Nabiki dancing on.
E: gets into an argument with Ranma after Tofu, Kin and Kasumi head off.

Enter Shampoo, the Gung-Ho Girl! I Put My Life in Your Hands
E: points out that the way Ranma-chan is eating her sundae isn’t ladylike.
G: misdirects Shampoo and sends her out of the hole in the wall she entered the shop by.
B: when Ranma says it’s hard to explain why Shampoo is after her, snidely mentions that the Chinese Amazon was cute, implying that the cause lies in a broken relationship.
B: twists Ranma’s words around so that he was the one who kissed Shampoo, rather than the other way around as it actually happened.
B: unsympathetic about Ranma’s plight and deems it his own fault.
B: tells him that at least the girl chasing him is cute, as though that makes up for her attempts to kill him.
E: gets upset when Shampoo attacks her.
G: despite Shampoo’s threat, claims not to know where Ranma-chan is.
U: when Ranma gets the Kiss of Marriage, which he got saving her, smacks him in the head with Shampoo’s broken chúi and storms off, returning to the scene only to angrily proclaim that her and Ranma’s engagement never happened.
E: tries to justify ending the engagement to herself.
B: despite having just been told about the rules and just having heard/seen Ranma try to persuade Shampoo to forget them and break off their “engagement”, gets angry when Shampoo’s affectionate displays gets Ranma all flustered.
B: declares she isn’t jealous, then pegs a giant boulder at Ranma-chan when she tries to apologise to her.
B: ignores Ranma-chan’s plight and instead lifts weights.

Shampoo's Revenge! The Shiatsu Technique That Steals Heart and Soul
B: is still angry with Ranma, despite the fact he wasn’t at fault.
U: when she finds Shampoo has snuck into Ranma’s futon and is sleeping beside him, cold-heartedly and deliberately splashes both with a bucket of cold water, waking them up and endangering Ranma-chan’s life.
U: when Shampoo finally manages to catch up to Ranma and cuddles with him, hurls a bucket at Ranma and knocks him silly, blaming it on him and Shampoo when the Chinese Amazon gets angry at her.
B: angrily denies her obvious jealousy.
B: refuses to even listen to Ranma’s explanation.
B: dubs him a pervert, despite having no proof at all.
G: is horrified when Shampoo’s “lunch” turns out to be a cooked P-chan and is ecstatic when he turns out to still be alive.
B: unthinkingly accepts a death challenge from a martial artist she knows to be of a superior grade to herself.
- Shampoo can keep Ranma on the defensive, and Ranma is clearly better than she is, so Shampoo is better than she is by logical deduction. Plus she’s going to fight a battle to the death against an opponent that she knows has no morals against killing.
B: punts Ranma out of the window when he tries to calm things down and keep a fight from breaking out.
B: deludes herself as to her actual chances in the fight.
B: shuts the window just before Ranma reenters the classroom so that he slams into it and slides down the face of the school.
*After this point, Akane is under Xi Fa Xiang Gao and is thus exempt from judgment.*

I Love You, Ranma! Please Don't Say Goodbye
*Prior to this point, Akane is still under the Xi Fa Xiang Gao shiatsu attack.*
G: worried for Ranma when she regains her senses.
E/B: jerks an apparently injured Ranma away from an obviously concerned Shampoo before she can attempt to minister to him.
U: smashes Ranma in the head with her elbow when Shampoo cuddles up to him, despite the fact he just saved her from another Xi Fa Xiang Gao or possibly some kind of pressure point attack.
G: worried for Ranma’s safety when he is about to deliberately activate his curse in front of Shampoo.
B: but doesn’t try to intervene in the resultant battle.
G: feels sympathetic for Shampoo, telling Ranma he could still catch her if he tried.
B: deliberately baits Ranma into an argument…
B: …then smacks him in the face with a kettle.

I Am a Man! Ranma's Going Back to China!?
U: having heard that Ranma is apparently eloping to China with Shampoo, refuses to listen to his attempts to explain what is really going on and attempts to thrash him with a shinai, telling him to consider it her wedding present.

What? No posts at all? No equation for Akane as she stands at the end of this season, no complaints/arguments about my rankings for specific points? Have you been waiting for me to come back or something? Well, my vacation is over and I'm back now, so I'll get to work on the materials for the 2nd season as soon as possible.

I only noticed this thread today. I haven't fully checked over this GBU list but the last entry:

I Am a Man! Ranma's Going Back to China!?
U: having heard that Ranma is apparently eloping to China with Shampoo, refuses to listen to his attempts to explain what is really going on and attempts to thrash him with a shinai, telling him to consider it her wedding present.


should be an E. Would you have listened to his excuses if you were in her shoes, or would you have tried to attack Ranma?

Let's see... given that she has heard from Ranma how exactly Shampoo started chasing him and that her intentions initially were lethal, haa seen Shampoo try to kill him whilst in female form, and was told bluntly in the prior episode's end that Ranma was glad Shampoo had left, as well as knowing that Ranma's cure lies in China and that he wants to be cured... yes, I find believing something so absolutely ridiculous as the nonsense their fathers came up with and attacking him violently, especially given that she has repeatedly stated she doesn't want to marry him, worthy of an Ugly mark.

Yep. E means Excusable: the deed is justified given the circumstances, but isn't otherwise nice. G is Good, B stands for Bad and U stands for Ugly.

Re: Anime-Akane's Good, Bad & Ugly list

I'm only disagree with this two
SpaceKnight of Chaos wrote:U: when she discovers Ranma is a man, casts aside the offer of friendship she had offered previously and declares him a pervert.

Well I think Ranma and Genma should have told the family about the curse before all this happens, she was in shock and probably was hard to her assimilate about Ranma’s curse and that now she was engage to her. Another thing, given the fact that the hentai horde lead by Kuno attacks a her all the day it is kind of “excusable” the bad stereotype she has about boys so I said a B
B: unthinkingly accepts a death challenge from a martial artist she knows to be of a superior grade to herself.
-
For me this one is an E
By this point I don’t think it is easy to say that Shampoo is a lot better than her
Ranma himself told her that he easily beats her before in china, then she saw how Ranma beats her again with just one hit, in fact she has saw opponents like Kuno who (isn’t far better that Akane) to gives a better fight an even Kodachi who is probably weaker that her causing more trouble to Ranma and another thing Shampoo almost kill her pet and has causes a lot of troubles to her too so I think it was excusable her reaction.

Ranma never told Akane that he could beat Shampoo- in fact, he told her that he ran from her in every encounter, as he/she did when Shampoo first appeared in Nerima. The only blow he's struck against her, bar the one that got him the Kiss of Death in the first place, was the destruction of her weapon- it was simple bad luck that it landed on her head and knocked her cold. Also, she knows that even if she won, she'd be the victim of non-stop pursuit with murderous intentions by the losing Chinese Amazon, which is definately something that should cause one to stop and think.

I'm guessing it's the thinking aspect that is making it hard to say Bad or Excusable. Would she even be thinking about that or expect it to be an exaggeration? There are allot of better reasons to want to attack Ranma in her book. Including her belief in his perversity.

This is the criteria I am using to declare the best moment is as follows: Take the number of Goods in an appearance and subtract the number of Bads in an appearance. If an Ugly occurs in the appearance, that appearance is disqualified. The appearance with the highest total is the best moment. Because of the Ugly disqualification rule, M-Ukyo and M-Kodachi have lower best moments than they otherwise would.

A-Akane has racked up more Uglies in one season that A-Ukyo does in the entire series. She is just as likely to be Ugly in the Anime as in the Manga. This makes her the most frequently Ugly girl in the cast. Yet despite that, she also does the fewest number of Ugly actions at a time when she is being Ugly.

You musn't forget that she had, a few episodes earlier, found Ranma and Shampoo sleeping together, witnessed Ranma try to convince Shampoo that he won't marry her and end up saying something along the lines of "We should get top know each other first" (forgot what exactly he said and my Ranma anime is a bit difficult to get at at the moment).

Yeah- she also saw that, once she poured cold water on Ranma, Shampoo immediately started trying to kill him, and he explained on the way to school that she snuck into his bed without his knowing. As for that conversation where he tried to convince her to go away- given how Shampoo was treating him, especially compared to how Akane had treated him to that point, would you have blamed him for getting so flustered he forgot what he was trying to say?

In the previous episode, she saw Ranma defend her from Shampoo when the Chinese Amazon attacked her, then watched as Ranma told Shampoo the "truth" about his curse- in essence, he told her that he'd been a girl -the girl she wanted to kill- all along, causing her to flee in tears after attacking him. Given the circumstances in which Shampoo left, would you reasonably expect a guy to go running after her- especially given the likely welcome he'd receive?

No. Despite the fact she's done comparatively little -if anything- to make him want to stick around, despite the fact she has proclaimed several times that she wants him to leave/the engagement to be broken, her reaction to hearing the tail-end of a conversation that makes out that Ranma is going to China -and she's on scene in time to hear Ranma protesting that he isn't going after Shampoo- is to violently assault him, proclaiming yet again that she doesn't want him around. Hypocrisy, uncalled for violence and a complete and utter lack of trust/willingness to actually hear Ranma out means I feel perfectly justified in marking that as an Ugly.

B: reluctant to agree to make her promise to Kasumi.


Why is being reluctant to make a promice that she knows she is going to break a bad thing?

She doesn't know she's going to break it at first- in fact, she only breaks it after Ranma insults her so badly (basically, telling her she's completely devoid of physical attractiveness and that she's never going to get anyone to marry them unless she manages to trick her into it). Not to mention that Kasumi wasn't just speaking as her elder sister, she was speaking as the effective feminine head of the household, asking Akane to treat the promise as though she'd been asked by their own mother.
