Still doesn't work, nor does copying and pasting the link directly.

Video of them filming. I reiterate my opinion...This looks totally dreadful. That said I'll watch an episode, at least I'll be able to laugh at its complete ineptness. I cannot fathom why they just didn't make another anime series.

I watched the Sailor Moon Live-Action show, I'll watch the Ranma bit too...

As to another anime series: there's still part of the manga that never made it to anime

Well, there's been A DBZ relaunch, a Hunter X Hunter relaunch. Who knows, there might be a Ranma 1/2 relaunch too.
And that's the bottom line 'cause Dumbledork said so.

Besides, if they did a relaunch of Ranma, they might have to completely redub all of Kunou's lines. :(

They've always seemed to like doing the occasional live-action adaptation of anime/manga series in Japan, especially if it doesn't require a lot of special effects. Heck, I'm still cringing a bit at the live-action attempts at Conan. :D

I'm just surprised they haven't attempted a live-action version of K-On! - or at least, that I've heard. :shock:

I'm looking forward to this. Anything that brings greater attention to one of my favourite anime/manga is a good thing. Certainly a re-launch of the series, (even a continuation?) would bring in a lot of new blood to the fanfiction community, which is every bit as important to me as making sure more people are exposed to the series in the first place.

In my opinion this is going to more muddle the fanfiction community then anything else. We're going to have another continuity mixed into this fandom and it's likely going to be irksome and but for some mild similarities we're going to find it hard to recognize. Yes, we might get some good new pieces but overall I don't think it's going to be stuff the 'old breed' will like.

She does in that pic. Not firetruck red, obviously, but not natural black, either.

I really don't get Tofu's presence in this. I mean just cut his scenes out he isn't needed. Toss in Shampoo and Cologne earlier and you have a more interesting show with more interesting action. Unless of course they actually decide to give and keep giving Kasumi and Nabiki actual personalities in which case OK fine. Likelihood of that happening and it remaining at all true to source material though?...It really just seems like this show is going to be like a fanfic itself not an adaption. Just a toning down of the entire source materials more outlandish stuff to make it filmable. At least they've got a actual female character to play the -chan part and it isn't a plushy of Ranma-chan although that'd likely be hilarious. I do wonder how they're going to work Genma's curse. While the others could be trained animals ala Animorphs kind of thing a Panda is a bit harder. Oh god he really could be a plushy Panda stand-in scary thought there. Nah, it'll probably be awful awful cheap CGI.
