Could someone give examples of this flanderaziation that seems to be brought up?

You link to tvtropes and then ask for examples? :?

Really?

Tvtropes wrote:Ranma 1/2: This long-running comedy manga contains some of its medium's most pronounced examples of the trope. Kasumi went from a normal Yamato Nadeshiko to an unfazeable near-parody. (Considering how comparatively dull she was before, it could be considered an improvement.) This is also applied to Nabiki's love of money, which propels over time from a merely opportunistic character to an appallingly two-faced exploiter. The first time Akane cooks in the series, it is merely bad and she realizes why immediately after tasting it (she made an honest mistake with ingredients). Later in the manga, her cooking has become all but poisonous, she doesn't care what she throws into it, she refuses to taste it or to acknowledge that it tastes bad, and everyone else treats it like toxic waste.
